About Anne Neeeson

We are from County Tyrone in N. Ireland. We first came to Portugal over 25 years ago and fell in love with this beautiful sunny part of the world. We like to spend as much time as possible here enjoying the lifestyle and playing golf.

We have put a lot of thought and effort into making these apartments very comfortable for the enjoyment of our guests - a 'home from home in the sunshine' (whatever the season). We hope you agree!

Owner Anne made booking so easy and was very accommodating. Apartment was perfect and included everything for a very enjoyable holiday. Especially enjoyed the spectacular sunset from the balcony. Would certainly return in the future.

Absolutely lovely apartment – modern, clean, very homely with everything you would need. Lovely balcony with beautiful sea views and a lovely large swimming pool. The apartment is set in a very peaceful location but a very easy walk to the strip and a lovely walk to the old town along the beach. Also felt very secure with the main locked gate. I went to this apartment with two of my friends (all in our 40s) and I would definitely go back to this apartment with both my family and friends - very highly recommend to others. Thanks for a lovely holiday.
