About the Owner

We live near Aljezur in the Western Algarve, on a small quinta and we have two donkeys, Dotty and Dudley and several goats. We have lived here for just over 5 years, and we love the Algarve and enjoy bird watching and walking. The Algarve is a fantastic holiday destination and we hope you enjoy our holiday apartment!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Waking up to the wonderful views was amazing and inspiring. The apartment was fantastic and extremely comfortable, just like the photographs! On arrival the owner, had done some shopping for us, so we were able to relax and enjoy a glass of wine, which was a really lovely way to start the holiday! We enjoyed relaxing on the balcony and in the gardens by the pool. Having explored the Algarve, this is our firm favourite with plenty of things to see and do in the area. We can’t wait to visit again next year…… Highly Recommended by Mark and Maureen Tulloch, Edinburgh, Scotland.

A very comfortable, well equipped apartment. The pool area is spacious and kept clean on a daily basis. Maia Praia beach and Palmares golf course are 5 minutes drive away. The view from the apartment is magnificent.

Best holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

Great holiday venue. Fantastic apartment on 2nd floor which was the top with great views over the sea and a golf course just on the right. Best equipped apt we have ever been to with washing machine dish washer microwave toaster and kettle and a great collection of utensils including a coffee maker. Welcome groceries were a great touch. The pool is a great size and very quiet and the children's pool was well used by young families. These apts are secluded in middle of farmland so no road noise just bird call. A great place to chill out in and unwind..The hot tub and sauna we used twice but did not use the gym or tennis courts it was too much like hard work. All facilities were pristine a credit to all the staff

Location

From the Owner

We purchased the apartment because of its location, being away from the bigger tourist areas and we feel you get a better taste of the real Algarve here. From the very first time we saw them we were blown away by the views from the apartment and we never get bored with them.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

If you are keen Bird Watchers, the apartment overlooks the spectacular designated area of the Alvor estuary, which is a beautiful protected lagoon, surrounded by extensive sand dunes. Because of the proximity to coast and mountains, it is a good base for Walking Holidays, especially between late September to early June. Horse Riding, there are three riding centres near the apartments. The Lagos area in particular has some of the best tracks and downhill trails for Mountain Biking in the Algarve. You can either hire a bike and be independent or join a guided group. Lagos and west coast of the Algarve offer some of the best conditions for many Water sports including Surfing, Kite Surfing, wake boarding , Sailing , windsurfing, sea kayaking and Scuba Diving. The Autodromo do Algarve Race Track is near Odiaxere. It hosts lots of events including Superbike Championships, FIA GT1 World Championships and track days for motorbikes and cars, as well as Go Karting.

Coast/Beach:

There are many fantastic beaches near the apartments, in fact some of the best in the Algarve. They include the wonderful 4kms of golden sands along Meia Praia and the smaller Batata Beach, which are both within walking distance of the apartments. Also located near the apartment and Lagos is Dona Ana Beach with it's spectacular rock formations nestling beneath the cliffs, the small sheltered Camilo Beach on the way to Ponta de Piedade, and the beautiful sandy bay of Porto de Mós Beach.
