About the Owner

I retired from school teaching, my husband a retired engineer, we decided to buy this apartment with a view to holidaying with our grandchildren and family members. We bought the apartment because of the location right beside beautiful beaches and a fantastic choice of restaurants within walking distance.

We have been holidaying in Portugal for 20 years with family and friends and really like the area and the people.

Our grandchildren love the pool and the playground where they make lots of friends.

We love the relaxed pace of life in the Algarve and the friendly local people, if you like fresh fish this is the place to come.

Great for families

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Portugal & definitely not our last, in fact we are hoping to go again next year.

The apartment & the complex were perfect for us, with our two children aged 12 & 5 the apartment was spacious, comfortable, tastefully decorated & spotless. It had everything we needed washing machine, dishwasher etc it even had a cooler box with ice blocks in the freezer for picnics at the beach.

The apartment & complex was very safe & well maintained with security shutters on all the windows & doors & gates requiring a code to get in & out. There was a secure underground car park also.

The pool was great, the kids loved it, they made friends with other children & had great fun with them. There was a lovely friendly atmosphere around the pool area & it was never too crowded.

The apartment was well located in a small village which was very quiet, there was a supermarket down the road & two bar/restaurants & a lovely pasta restaurant within walking distance. There were several lovely beaches near by but I was glad we hired a car as I think it would have been a bit far to walk especially for the children in the heat.

Albufeira was a short drive away & we spent a couple of nights down at the marina where there was go carting, quad bikes, trampolines etc for the kids & bars with lovely comfy seating for the adults to relax & enjoy the view.

We definitely recommend the apartment, complex & location & can't wait to return to Portugal again next year.

Many thanks to the owner Christine for answering my many questions & making the booking process as painless as possible.

Great location for an Algarve Break!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here in Autumn 2013 and I can't rate the apartment and location highly enough. The apartment itself is modern, tastefully decorated, spacious and is really well appointed; for example the air con is excellent for the warm nights and there is a built in multi-room sound system which was great for docking the iPod and chilling out in the evenings!

The front terrace laps up the morning sun beautfully, while the rear balcony (which is barely over-looked by the neighbouring apartments) is subjected to a few hours of glorious evening sun which is great for a couple of glasses of wine and some antipasti before dinner!

The location is excellent, close to Gale beach and Salgados golf course. Lots of decent bars and restaurants in easy walking distance. Special mention must be made of Mr Singh's restaurant (10 minute walk); has to be the best Indian restaurant in Western Europe! Car hire is recommended for this area of the Algarve but it's by no means essential. We did hire a car for the increased flexibility / range and the apartments basement car park was therefore really handy.

Booking with Christine was a real pleasure and the welcome / assistance during our stay was second to none.

Perfect Place to Explore Sunny Algarve

  • 5 of 5

my wife and I arrived at this lovely apartment to be greeted by Lynn who had put a lovely welcome pack into our refrigerator for our arrival, which was very much appreciated as our flight was quite late in the evening.

The apartment was immaculate and much nicer than the pictures we had looked at. It was on the first floor and very quiet and overlooked the swimming pool and manicured gardens.

We had hired a car, which was secure in the underground garage, but were able to walk to many good quality restaurants where we had some delicious meals, really good value!

Just across the road was a supermarket which supplied everything we required during our stay, including the English newspapers.

We appreciated the air conditioning on the warmer evenings which helped us get a good nights sleep.

Gale beach was our favourite just a few minutes away, and we took a couple of trips into Albufeira in the balmy evenings to stroll around and buy some lovely gifts to take home.

A great base to explore everything the Algarve has to offer, we look forward to returning again soon. Thank You Christine for all your help with the booking which made everything so easy. Kind Regards, Will and Liz
