About Paul Crane

My wife and I purchased our apartment for our own use, using our requirements as a guide for rentals. With that in mind we believe we can make holidays special.

Paul Crane purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Paul Crane chose Mato Serrão

We toured the Algarve and looked at the overall benefits of the Carvoeiro area and decided this was the place for us. The laid back lifestyle and friendly locals make it a very relaxing place, With only a 40 minute drive from Faro Airport.There are numerous Bars and Restaurants of a good standard all around us within just a five minute walk. The beach is also where the bars and restaurants are so acces is fantastic. The Algarve is home to the best beaches in Europe and there are many breathtakingly beautiful ones in the area. There are golf courses and a water park within 5k.

What makes this apartment unique

Our property benefits from a fully appointed kitchen with Granite worktops, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge freezer. The lounge/Diner is spacious and looks out to the sea. From the balcony we overlook the two communal pools, adult and child with a safety barrier between. There are two bathrooms and two bedroom and can sleep 5 people in total. The property benefits sea breezes to cool the evenings.

If you drive while here, there is a lot to see but there is every concievable type of activity should you decide to be driven from the Airport to Carvoeiro. This apartment is central to the whole of Carvoeiro. We are always available for help on the telephone once we make contact with clients.

Lovely apartment in perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a weeks visit. The apartment is ideal and in a perfect location with lovely views. We have stayed in many rentals on Monte Dourado but this was one of our favourites due to being next to the large heated pool.

The apartment is spotless and fully equipped. The owner Paul was really helpful and friendly regarding the booking and kept in touch to answer any questions we might have had.

Hopefully we will return.
