About the property

Armacao de Pera, Central Algarve, Portugal - 5 Minutes Walk from 3km of Beautiful Sandy Beaches, Shops, Supermarkets, Bars and Restaurants

Our luxury air-conditioned apartment is modern and tastefully decorated to a high standard with quality furnishings. Set in a perfect location, it is fully equipped with all the modern conveniences you would expect - we consider it a home from home. The apartment is situated in a prime spot within Armacao de Pera - in a quiet neighbourhood but just 5 minutes walk from 3km of beautiful sandy beaches, shops, supermarkets, bars, cafes and numerous restaurants that serve a variety of cuisines including fresh seafood and local specialities. Armacao's beach is one of the longest in the Algarve stretching out as far as the eye can see to the east, whilst to the west the landscape changes to stunning rock formations and coves. Armacao de Pera is one of the oldest established resorts on the Algarve and oozes traditional Portuguese charm. It is very family friendly and you often see 3 generations of families out strolling along the promenade in the evening. With stunning beaches, beautiful scenery and near-round sunshine, Armacao de Pera is the ideal holiday destination.

About Alison Smith

Myself, my mother and my brother purchased our apartment as a joint venture whilst on a short holiday. We had never visited Portugal before but immediately fell in love with the climate, the friendliness of the people, the serenity, the landscape, the food and the fabulous beaches! We love the fact that from the moment you arrive, you feel nice and relaxed. One day we hope to upgrade to a villa, but for the time being we're more than happy with our lovely apartment. We never tire of going to Portugal and I know my mother aspires to permanently move out there sometime in the future.

Alison Smith purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Alison Smith chose Silves region

Armacao de Pera appealed to us immediately, it is built along a small stretch of coastline and as a result you are only ever 5-10 minutes walk from the sea. It is a traditional Portuguese town, very family friendly and nearly everyone speaks English - the resort does not survive on English tourism unlike other resorts.

There are a lot of apartments in the resort but they are mainly holiday homes for the Portuguese who come down from the North in the summer. Armacao has a population of approximately 5,000 but this increases significantly in July/August when the Portuguese are on holiday.

The area is easily accessible, with Faro airport 35 minutes drive away. The resort lies just 10 minutes from the motorway and being in Central Algarve it is easy to explore to the east and west.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is a 5 minutes walk from 3km of sandy beach and from restaurants, shops and bars. We have furnished the apartment to a high standard and it is fully equipped as we want it to be a home from home for both ourselves and our guests.

The resort is well placed for all golf courses, plus there are numerous water parks and other family activities in the vicinity. Its central location means that everything in the Algarve is within driving distance of no more than 1 hour maximum. You can also easily drive across the border into Spain for a day trip if you so desire!

Approximately 80% of our bookings are from either returning guests or from recommendedations, which we think speaks volumes for our apartment and the resort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a fabulous holiday and your apartment was perfect, it had everything we could want. Everywhere we ate had good food. I couldn't believe how well priced the groceries, restaurants and even ice creams were! We definitely intend to return and would highly recommend your apartment to anyone." - Ms J McAllister (July/August 2013)

"We had a great holiday and your apartment was super. We are already chatting about returning next year, great location, lovely people, super weather. We hope to be back for part 2!" - Mrs M Gangar (July 2013)

"We had an absolute ball and we were all settled in and down to the beach by 14:30 on the Sunday after arriving! Your flat was just perfect for us and we had a brilliant time, thank you." - Mrs R McNiven (returning guest, June 2013)

"Everything was great, apartment lovely, really comfortable and in a great place - we felt right at home!" - Mrs S Keenan (October 2012)

Awesome Location

  • 5 of 5

thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. It was perfect for us as we wanted to be able to have easy access to the area. Car was not required as the property was conveniently located to public transport. We loved all of the local restaurants all within walking distance and the walks along the water front were so beautiful.Perfect get away for long stay and short stays. The appartment had everything we needed. Did try the roof top pool but a bit chilly as it was not heated but still loved the view and meeting others in the building.

we will definitely come back to stay.
