About Tom Armstrong

We live with our family in Ireland and we have been travelling to Carvoeiro for the past 10 years and have fallen in love with the area, so much so, that we decided to buy an apartment for family use.

This area caters for all our interests from photography, swimming in the clear blue sea, walking, visiting restaurants or simply just wiling the hours away reading.

We chose this part of Portugal because our daughters and grandchildren and wider family circle can relax with peace of mind in a traditional peaceful Portuguese fishing village.

We love it.

Tom Armstrong purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Tom Armstrong chose Vale de Centianes

The Apartment:

We purchased the apartment in 2011 and we completely repainted and refurbished bathrooms, bedrooms,kitchen and patio to very high specifications and replaced all furniture in November 2014.

Our apartment offers an opportunity to rest in a clean and very comfortable 2 bedroom accommodation with ensuites in both rooms. In addition there are two pools-adult and toddler- and tennis courts on the complex. An elevator serves all floors making sure you don't tax yourselves carrying heavy luggage to and from the apartment.

The balcony view and space allows for relaxing evenings if you decide to eat at home. This is a holiday home for those who wish to relax and watch the world go by.

This is an apartment for families who enjoy luxury and a peaceful setting.
