About Herminia

My husband and I are both professors and we bought this apartment in 2005 because we love the Algarve and spending safe, peaceful and sunny holidays there. Unfortunately, due to professional reasons, we are unable to go there as much as we would like. Therefore, we've decided to rent it out during certain periods of the year, so that other people could also enjoy spending their holidays in this quiet 4 star holiday condominium.

Herminia purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Herminia chose Cerro de Águia

We love the weather, and the beautiful beaches and calm sea; it's located in the center of the Algarve in a 4 star condominium. Staying in Central Algarve offers us the possibility to choose from a number different beaches everyday.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is well cared for all year round by the Marina's personnel and with 24 hour surveillance. Has a spacious garage (ours is right below the flat).

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent stay in your beautiful apartment which I have been extolling the virtues of to anyone who will listen. My sister Alison and I were delighted with the accommodation, surroundings and people including Maria. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks in the Algarve. I’m sure we will be back soon.

"Obrigado" and Best Wishes

Moira Knox

I rented your apartment in April this year and in August 2010.I found it very comfortable and convenient. I recommended it to family and friends.

Best regards,

Colette Shaw

David and I are now back in rainy, cold England after spending a wonderful week in your lovely apartment and beautiful, warm country!! We travelled a lot and we also spent time relaxing on the beach. Your house-keeper, Maria and her husband were charming and helpful.

beautiful spacious apartment with everything

  • 5 of 5

beautiful apartment well presented and spacious. Ideal for the marina which is just across the road which you access either via a stair case or lift on the complex then cross the road and down some more stairs and your on the marina. A 20 to 30 min walk up some steepish hills (not good if you have mobility issues ) and you come to old town which is full of bars and shops its a very vibrant and lively place and there are some great restaurants . my only gripe is that a lot of the bars either play music but play it that loud you don't know what your listening to half the time . And some have live entertainment and you don,t know who to listen to as they seem to be in competition as to who can sing the loudest . But other than that its a great place . the local bus runs regularly and cost €1.40 to anywhere in alburfeira a taxi will set you backbetween €6and €7 . theres also tuk tuks but don't know the price as we never used them . Also don't expect wifi from the complex because they don't give the password to people who rent privately and those who do rent from the complex can only use it in reception . I only wanted it to facetime my granddaughter but had to make do with voice calls instead which was ok . Theres a market on a tuesday if you lke looking for bargains the main bus station is right next to it . But be advised wear either trainers or canvas shoes as the ground is all stones and gravel and very uneven . other than my lil gripes this is a great place to stay hope to go back in a few years and bring our granddaughter with us after she's been to see micky mouse of course lol

We have stayed at the complex on several occasions through the usual holiday companies. This was the first time we had gone private and definitely don't regret doing so. The apartment is set within a small complex and is approximately 20/25 minutes walk into the old town - which we did most nights. The marina is a couple of minutes away.

This apartment is lovely. It has all the personal touches that you expect in your own home.

The apartment was clean and well maintained. It is a lovely sun trap for when you don't want to sit by the pool. We very much enjoyed our stay.

The communication between the owner and ourselves was very good. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and will seriously be looking into booking this again next year. Thank you for a fantastic stay.

Great apartment, location and holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Albufeira on a number of occasions but this has been the best accomodation so far. The apartment is modern, clean and has great facilities. The complex is excellent and well maintained with a large clean pool. The location is ideal for us as it is next to the marina which has a number of bars that are good for people watching and is only a short walk to the old town which is our favourite place to eat (Casa del Mar overlooking the beach is our favourite restaurant). The owners are extremely helpful and friendly. An excellent holiday and would hope to book again.

Thank you. An excellent apartment with everything we needed. Clean, well maintained, comfortable. Shame no English channels on tv (if only for news) and only one sun lounger available to lie outside on lovely grass area.

Well placed for the marina and Albufeira and for travelling about the Algarve. Bonus of free secure parking.

We enjoyed our break even if the weather wasn't as good as it could have been.

apartment had all the amenities required apart from the tv as we could not all the channels we have at home we would prefer free sat service. apart from that the apartment was perfect for our needs and the service provided by the owner were great. we particularly liked the fact that we could walk right out to the sun to the patio or indeed lye out on the grass on the sun lounger.
