Amazing holidays

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week!!

I am Portuguese and I can guarantee that the Prainha is one of the best places in Portugal for a holiday.

The apartment is wonderful, with lots of light, very clean, with large area and a very nice balcony. I travel a lot and I'm lucky to have already spent a holiday in wonderful homes ... but if I had to choose ... I chose this wonderful apartment in Prainha.

I thank all the attention and sympathy that Kevina dismissed us, always available and I don't have words for the way she handled all the details of our holidays.

When I return to the Algarve, this is my choice!!

Idyllic setting for a relaxing beach holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have travelled many times to this area of the Algarve with our two daughters but staying at this apartment in the Prainha complex was simply our best experience yet! The apartment combines stylish decoration, light and space with all the home comforts that make a holiday truly relaxing. The apartment was well-equipped,clean and perfectly placed within the complex for accessing the lovely pools and the fantastic beach. During our 10 days the apartment was cleaned by the very pleasant housekeeper and the sheets and towels were changed. Balconies at both the rear and front of the property afforded lovely views and were ideal spots to enjoy morning coffee or a glass of wine. Because we know the area well we enjoyed visiting our favourite Alvor restaurants which are a 5 minute drive away, but took the recommendations of the owner and discovered a wonderful countryside restaurant and enjoyed an early evening visit to Silves. The apartment offers everything that you need for a relaxing break in a lovely location. We would love to return.

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here a number of times and love this apartment. It's extremely comfortable and has everything you need to make sure that you have a fabulous holiday. It's location in Praihna is excellent, just across the road from the shop and Ma Pasta restaurant, minutes from the Club House, and a very short walk to the cliff top pool and the beach. Kevina, the owner is really helpful and has given us great advice about restaurants, day trips, shopping opportunities etc. Ask her to tell you about the fabulous restaurant out in the country beyond the golf course!

The apartment has three balconies, two which get morning sun and one larger one which gets sun in the afternoon and evenings, so it's lovely to have breakfast and evening cocktails sitting in the sun. All of the rooms are very good size and have high ceilings, so it's cool and although air con is available, we have never needed to use it . It has a great big flat screen tv and excellent wi fi and the kitchen is extremely well equipped.

We are returning to this apartment in September and can't wait. We highly recommend it.
