This apartment was so good the first time that we booked it again. Beautiful views from the wrap around balcony which is very safe for children. It has every mod con you need. Spotlessly clean and everything in pristine working order. So convenient to all amenities...beach 5 mins, great supermarket across the road. Very safe and quiet area. I can't fault it. The owner was waiting with keys so no delay and a lovely send off from Frank and Emilia. Cannot wait to stay here again...home from home.

Another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Sorry we are a little late in sending in this review but we are still in shock after returning to the cold / snow /rain back home in England.

This was our second holiday this year to this beautiful apartment in the resort of Quarteira.

We were delighted to return and enjoy the comforts of our favourite holiday accommodation and meet up with the lovely Emilia and Frank again.

Everything about this apartment is superb. We can't add much more than what we said in our first review only to say we have already booked again and can't wait to return in April.

Thank you once again Frank for picking us up from the airport and taking us back again.

It's a great service you provide and is much appreciated.

Emilia and Frank are so kind to us and are the perfect hosts.

See you in 2016.

Rob and Annette

Lovely apartment in an excellent location. The apartment is very well equipped and also 2 minutes from a supermarket so self catering was easy. We have been visiting Portugal for the last 20 years and this is by far the best apartment we have stayed in. Emilia & Frank were charming and we are hoping to return next year. Highly recommended.

fantastic apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 9 day holiday in this apartment. from the first time i made inquiries regarding this accommodation Emilia and Frank were so helpful, they always promptly returned my emails and they were so welcoming when we arrived. The apartment is beautiful so well equipped and beautifully furnished. We were a family of 5 and we had loads of space. the wraparound balcony gave us sunshine all day with fabulous views of the beach which is only few mins walk. the pool was lovely and quiet and spotless. Having wifi was a great bonus for our teenagers!! I would certainly recommend this apartment and will be returning.

Thank you sincerely Emilia and Frank.

Above Average Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a family holiday at this lovely modern apartment. The block and the pool area are very well kept and just a few minutes walk from the Forte Novo end of the long promenade and beach with its array of restaurants and beach bars, at the other end of the promenade is the old town with its fish and produce markets. Just across the road from the apartment is a well stocked supermarket which is very handy. This tastefully decorated apartment is on the top floor and as soon as you enter the living room you are met with an amazing sea view with doors out to a large wrap around balcony. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and the bedrooms and spacious bathrooms are very clean . Free wifi was a bonus too. We were a party of 5 and we never felt crowded in this apartment. Contacting the owners was never a problem ,emails were answered immediately and were friendly and informative, and they kept in contact leading up to the holiday, it was nice to meet them on our arrival. We had a perfect holiday and would love to return.

From the Owner

We bought this apartment for our family holidays. We were looking for comfort, sea view and yet a very peaceful environment. We love walking and tranquility, all this we found in Quarteira. The large lounge sliding door allowing for the sunny sunshine to come through right early in the morning until sunset was one of the most capturing features. Above all easy access to the food markets just across the road no vehicles are needed. We loved the complex infrastructure and especially the size and the layout of the apartment. Unfortunately we haven't managed as much free time as we had thought to enjoy frequent holidays.

From the Owner

Situated near all convenient stores. Just walking distance to the beautiful beach front. In our complex we are one of the only two apartments that have a stunning direct sea view in this complex. Although we are so near the beach front we are situated in a peaceful area whereby you are not subject to the summer overcrowding and noisy pressure. We offer to all our guests all the beach gear and a beautifully furnished place as this was for our personal use and not for commercial interest at first.
