Clean, modern and convenient

  • 4 of 5

My husband, 11 year old daughter and I stayed for a week in the hot and busy month of August. We particularly appreciated the wonderful air-conditioning, the convenience of the location and the great car park space which was just a few steps away from our apartment door! We were spoilt for choice with great restaurants to visit in the evening just outside the front door and the people watching opportunities were great! Found the steps to the pool a little steep but once up there the view is lovely and usually very quiet. Lovely helpful owner and great place for a relaxing holiday, thank you.

We spent 5 days at this beautiful apartment, couldn't have been more perfect. The weather was fabulous and you have everything right on your doorstep - no car necessary.

The owner (Catherine) is very friendly and a pleasure to deal with. She arranged our airport transfers, which I would highly recommend - from landing at Faro to entering the apartment - took approx 45 mins!

The only down side to this holiday....was having to come home :(

Fantastic Location beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful Apartment in September which was so central to restaurants, bars and beach. If you like a nice quite location and enjoy a beach holiday this is the apartment for you. It is very modern with a lovely big balcony consisting of sofa and chairs and table which you can relax and read book in the peaceful setting. It is a very warm and inviting Apartment with all the modern conveniences you need from dishwasher, washing machine and satellite TV. There is roof top pool which we had to ourselves most of the time which had fantastic views of the sea and Olhas D'Agua. I would certainly recommend this apartment to anyone who enjoys a central location which everything in your reach.

relaxing location and a real home from home.

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic holiday, the apartment is lovely, modern and clean. The location is perfect with all the bars, restaurants and beach on your doorstep. The apartment is at the back and overlooks the steps leading to the roof top swimming pool and it is very peaceful. We never struggled to get a sunbed and found other English and Portuguese families in the complex very friendly. Catherine, the owner is really helpful, she gave us loads of local information and advise. We travelled with a 14 yr old boy and he really enjoyed the local water parks and we all fell in love with Portugal.

Lovely Appartment By The Sea

  • 4 of 5

Me and my wife had a great long weekend break in June. The apartment is very clean and tastefully decorated. Great location just 1 mins walk to a lovely quiet sandy beach and the restaurants and bars of Olhos D'Agua. The apartment is located on the otherside of the main street bars so very quiet at night. No seaview from the terrace, but we didn't mind because its so close to the beach. Would recommend staying here. Steve and Jaqueline.
