About Geraldine and Alan Dean

We live in the lovely Yorkshire Dales in a picturesque 17th century cottage. I work as a community Macmillan nurse and my husband Alan is a quality manager in the pet food industry and no he doesn't have to taste test! Our 2 children long flew the nest. Although we enjoy travelling nowhere beats our holidays here.

Geraldine and Alan Dean purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Geraldine and Alan Dean chose Carvoeiro / Lagoa region

Although we had visited the Algarve for many years this area was unknown to us. When we stumbled across this newly built apartment in such a beautiful setting we were bowled over. It was the stunning sea views and the quality of the fixtures and fittings and the friendly village that we bought then and there and have never regretted this quick decision.

As we were one of the first to buy our apartment is in arguably the best position on the complex.

What makes this apartment unique

Unique benefits are the sea views, the position on the small attractive complex, landscaped gardens,delightful pools including a children's pool and the friendly people. Only a few minutes walk to several very friendly bars and restaurants. Value for money. Your euro goes a long way!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our 5th time here. Love the apartment and the area. Enjoyed walking along the safe cliff walks with amazing views of the ocean saw Dolphins on a couple of occasions. Love sitting on the sunny balcony with a book and a glass of wine. My husband and myself really relax here. Several very good restaurants 10 minutes walk away. Beginning to feel like a local! And have already booked our 6th visit.

Vista Do Mar, Alporchinos, Armacao de Pera.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, clean, spacious and comprehensively equipped apartment situated on the first floor of a modern low rise complex with both sea and pool views. Situated in a quiet area but with a choice of good restaurants within easy walking distance and a short walk to the sea. Everything needed for a relaxing holiday is in the apartment and the nearest beach is a short stroll away. The two balconies have sun from early morning until evening and enjoy lovely sea views. I was most impressed by the owners attention to detail and corresponding with them was simple with quick and informative replies. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.

Lovely homely apartment with fantastic views from the balcony

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Geraldine and Alan's apartment, it was clean, homely with every facility for cooking, listening to music, information pamphlets, cool bags for days at the beach, sunbeds and toppers for the pool. Beach and restaurants and supermarket was easily reachable by car or by foot if feeling energetic. Would have no hesitation on recommending this apartment it was absolutely perfect for a relaxing holiday.

Excellent apartment and lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to the apartment and found it to be just as wonderful as our first visit 5 years earlier. The standard of the apartment is excellent with everything you need to make your stay special, even having a foot pump for my lilo was really useful. The apartment is spacious, very clean, beautifully furnished and the air conditioning in the lounge and bedroom was very much appreciated. The views from the balcony are lovely and the location of the apartment is great overlooking the pool, It's within walking distance to the local supermarket, restaurants and the beautiful beaches. The buildings and gardens are kept to a very high standard. I would certainly recommend the apartment and hopefully we will return for a third visit. Gill and Richard

Lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment with pool and A/C in a not too crowded area of the Algarve. Amazing views from balcony. Did not need car at all during 5 day stay as all is walking distance and the cab rides to/from town and airport are reasonable. For those running out of toiletries, there is a supermarket in the area. Only thing we missed were bbq facilities. Lots of delicious restaurants with local specialties. For wifi, there is a bar nearby and the local hotel can provide contact info for shuttle. Geraldine and Allan are gracious hosts, very communicative, responsive and helpful. Definitely recommended whether you come with friends, family with kids (big or small) or as a couple.
