About michelle or chris

We are a young couple that live in England, we fell in love with the Algarve 10 years ago, so decided to set up home here. We are both in the hotel and leisure industry and spend our spare time golfing, walking and going on holiday.

michelle or chris purchased this apartment in 2009

Why michelle or chris chose Guia

We love the Algarve especially Guia, Albufeira, because of the fantastic facilities in the area. The apartment is a few minutes drive to over 9 beautiful beaches, close to the marina of Albufeira and a stroll to loads of local restaurants, bars and shops, including cinema and bowling and much more. There is something for everyone and it's only a 30 minute drive to the airport.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for a great stay, there was plenty to do for the children and we loved the little village of Guia.

Had a great time at the apartment, lovely neighbours will stay again.

Hi Michelle and Chris, thank you for letting us rent your lovely apartment. we had a great time and will be in touch to book in the near future.

The apartment was absolutley fantastic. The whole complex was great, nice and quiet during the day and very relaxing. We went to the local town albiferia every night which was only about 10 minutes away. So your apartment was a perfect location, i dont think id ever want to stay in a hotel complex after that again! We met some of your neighbours while we there and everyone were very nice people, alwats stopped for a chat and give a few pointers about where to go in guia as well. Gui was a lovely place and we tended to eat and drink there in the evenings before hitting the old town in Albiferia.

Great place, loved the area and the condominium thank you.

Fantastic Guia apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in Guia made even more special by the fantastic 2 bed apartment we stayed in. It is only a 30 minute drive from Faro Airport. It had everything we needed for our stay including outdoor seating on two balconies, sun loungers for the pool, umbrellas, rubber rings, toys, books, dvd's and games. The apartment was clean and tidy and is the perfect location (but you do need a car) to visit Zoomarine, a must see with it's dolphin/bird shows, beach, mini theme park and water slides. Another place to visit is Fiesa to look at the sand sculptures which are amazing. A five minute walk from the apartment was our favourite restaurant Queens. We would also recommend a visit to Lourenco beach in Gale. They do excellent sardines at the beach restaurant there too! We would definitely visit Guia and use this apartment again.
