About Phillip Handscomb

We are Lesley and Phill Handscomb. We live in a small village called Bishopstone a few miles west of Hereford with the Black Mountains of Wales just 12 miles away. We are both recently retired teachers. We bought the apartment with the intention of spending more and more time there as we get older. We still have a young, golf mad teenager in school so, for a few years, we are restricted to using the apartment occasionally in the school holidays. We try to add something to the apartment every time we visit to make it more and more comfortable for whoever visits. We are lucky to have a lovely lady who looks after the apartment in our absence and greets guests when they arrive. The more we visit the more we fall in love with Armacao de Pera and the Algarve in general.

Super apartment ideally situated

  • 5 of 5

Pre holiday instructions and communication were excellent as was the transfer from airport to apartment and back. Not having a car did not restrict our enjoyment as the apartment is within easy walking distance of beaches,bars,restaurants,supermarkets,bus stop and taxi rank.

Apartment is well equipped and met all our needs. Sunny aspect on both balconies at different times of the day was a nice bonus.

We would definitely stay in this apartment again and would be happy to recommend.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

A great apartment, centrally located (5 mins walk to restaurants and beach), yet nice and quiet at night, so good nights sleep. Very well equipped kitchen, with everything you need for a self catering holiday. However, there are an abundance of restaurants within a short walk. We loved the Raj (at the Holiday Inn) always great service and yummy food, Oasis pizza restaurant, just before the main strip is great for pizza or pasta and their Sangria is to die for! The bedding is great quality and the beds were very comfy too. The pool area is clean and tidy and having two balconies (front and back) was great to catch the sun. There was nothing we didn't like. Also, English TV was an added bonus. Thanks to Phillip for his great communication, the booking process was smooth too. We'll be back!

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

Excellent apartment! Really clean and with everything you might need for a self catering family holiday. Complex not too overcrowded despite peak season- although there are not many sun loungers by the pool so you need to be quick in the mornings. Great location for beaches and restaurants and the supermarket pingo doce just 10 mins walk away. We made good use of the bbq on balcony with lovely fresh fish! Had a gorgeous steak on a stone at Hera restaurant- and cheap drinks at pedros bar down on the promenade. Plenty of ice cream parlours and shops to peruse, All in all a great 2 weeks holiday we will definitely be returning again in the near future! Would highly recommend this apartment.

This is our third stay in the apartment over the last two years. It really is a home from home... with everything you need and more. It is in a quiet location but only five minutes walk takes you to the centre and beach. Restaurants we would recommend .... Gatsbys, L'Oasis, Bollywood and O Casaro. Definitely be back next year.

A gentle 5 minute stroll to the fabulous new promenade and the best, sandy beach in the Algarve - 7km long. Safe bathing with a gentle slope. In the summer months you can hire jet skis, pedoloes etc. Numerous other sandy beaches and coves nearby. The old part of town has many local restaurants, which offer a 3 course meal with wine for no more than 10 Euros. There are also English bars which run frequent 'pub' quizzes. The Tourist Bureau situated on the promenade next to the beach.


The nearest airport is Faro, less than 50 kilometres away, approximately 45 minutes drive east of Armacao de Pera - a very straightforward drive along the N125 road or the A22 motorway. Full details of how to get from the airport to the apartment can be provided. Car hire is available from Faro airport. However, this is not essential as many faciliities are within easy walking distance and the region is served by good local buses and taxis.


The nearest large town is Albufeira, 12 km east approximately 15 minutes drive from Armacao de Pera. The Zoomarine park and the giant Algarve Shopping Centre are situated between Armacao and Albufeira. The Slide and Splash waterpark is approximately 15 minutes drive west of Armacao towards Portimao.

East: - Albufeira approx. 12km; Vilamoura approx. 30km; Faro approx. 45 km.

West: - Portimao approx. 17km; Lagos approx. 30 km.

Further Details:

Located in the beautiful town of Armacao de Pera just west of Albufeira. There are numerous bars, banks, supermarkets and fine choice of restaurants within easy walking distance. The nearest supermarket is a large 'Pingu Dos' just round the corner from the apartment. There is a local daily market for fish, meat, vegetables and bread (usually mornings only). A speciality is fish, for which Armacao is well known. There are also many Multibanco cashpoint machines as well as chemists, pharmacies, dentists and doctors' surgeries.
