Porches Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was absolutely beautiful.The attention to detail was superb. It had everything you could need & more and was immaculately clean. The location was as described - the beach was a 5 min walk, shop and a few restaurants within walking distance.The complex was quiet, especially at night and extremely well suited to families.We really couldn't fault it! We would recommend a car for other beautiful beaches - castello, Gale, Evaristo about 15 mins away, Zoo Marine and of course Aqualand water park! We would highly recommend the sailing trip from Vilamoura on the owners yacht- we chased dolphins and had an amazing day!! We really would give this holiday 10/10!! We will be back - finances permitting!!

This apartment is amazing, immaculate and finished to a very high standard. From the moment we got there it felt like home. The apartment is equipped with everything you could possibly need. We were met by Vivienne who showed us round and explained how everything worked. The welcome pack is an ideal way to start your holiday with basic provisions (Tea, coffee, bottle of lovely red wine, water, bread, ham and cheese, etc) so you can relax from the word go.

From morning till night you can have sunshine or shade from the large balcony overlooking the pool, or breakfast on the terrace with views out to sea. There are two main swimming pools, a small children's pool and a tennis court in a beautifully maintained and stunning complex.

Location is fantastic with the beach, restaurants, bars, mini market and a fully stocked Intermarche all within close walking distance.This is our first visit to "Casa Suzy" and as the apartment, location and the service we have received from Sue and Mike is perfect we have already booked for our return in 2019.

Cet appartement au premier étage est particulièrement confortable, joliment meublé et décoré avec une cuisine très bien équipée, deux grandes chambres avec des lits confortables, deux salles de bains. Le séjour est cosy avec ses deux canapés deux places, le WI FI fonctionne très bien. L'environnement est calme et la vue sur l'océan depuis la terrasse est très agréable. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la gentillesse de Sue et la rapidité de notre correspondance par mail. Nous avons été accueillis par Vivienne que nous remercions pour sa disponibilité. La région est magnifique, les randonnées sur les falaises sont splendides. Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement pour 4 personnes et nous espérons bien y revenir prochainement. Thank you so much Sue !

This apartment on the first floor is particularly comfortable, nicely furnished and decorated with a very well equipped kitchen, two large bedrooms with comfortable beds, two bathrooms. The dining room is cosy with two sofas , the WI FI is great. The environment is quiet and the view of the ocean from the terrace is very nice. We really appriciate Sue's kindness and the speed of our correspondence by mail. The area is beautiful, the hikes on the cliffs are splendid. We highly recommend this apartment for 4 people and we hope to come back soon. Thank you so much Sue !

Wonderful summer stay in April !!!

  • 5 of 5

We, a five-member Family from germany, with almost adult children , experienced a great short week in the apartment of Sue. Everything we needed was available, over wlan, beach towels and bag, orange press and much more. The apartment is very tastefully decorated and was very clean, we felt very comfortable. We were warmly welcomed on the arrival day, everything was shown to us. To the wonderful beach it is only 500 meters down the road and to our favorite Indian Restaurant , the "Indian Curry House" a only 5 min walk. We like to come back in the next year!

Great Apartment in a Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has everything you could possibly need for a comfortable and relaxing stay including beach towels, 2 hairdryers and straighteners, leaving more space in your suitcase for more clothes!! It is well maintained throughout.

We had a 10 night stay at the beginning of July and the weather was fantastic for the whole holiday. There are 2 great beaches within a 5 minute walk, one with a beach restaurant. We look forward to hopefully returning soon.

Superb apartment

  • 5 of 5

Had a 3 night stay in May. Its about a 30 minute drive from Faro airport and very easy to find. On arrival we were met by the owners sister who showed us around. It has two good size bedrooms and bathrooms, large kitchen and sitting room. The apartment was exactly as described and had everything you could need including tea, coffee etc.It was very clean and comfortable. The sunny balcony has views of the sea. Located a short walk from a lovely beach. A local supermarket and a number of restaurants mean that you don't need a car. Having a car means that you can visit some of the other lovely beaches just a few miles away up the coast. Its in a quieter area of the resort and about a 30 minute walk to the main resort where there are more restaurants. A taxi is only about 7 Euros so we walked down and got a taxi back.

I can highly recommend this apartment.

The village, only a stroll away, has two of the best blue flag beaches on the Algarve, often frequented by the rich and famous. These two are distinct, whilst one offers restaurant and water sports facilities; the other is set within a rugged cove of its own unspoilt unique beauty, with cliff top walks. Close by is a fantastic luxury hotel, which offers five-star facilities including a spa and beauty treatments. Also a wide choice of restaurants, bars, shops and supermarket all within walking distance.

The nearest lively resorts of Armacao de Pera and Albufeira are 5 and 15 minutes drive respectively. One could venture further afield to the likes of Vilamoura or Portimao which are approximately 20 minutes drive. The Algarve shopping centre and retail park, which also includes a multi screen cinema and vast choice of restaurants, is only a 10 minute drive away.

There is an abundance of golf courses along the stretch of the Algarve, discount tees can be arranged subject to availability.

Other Activities: Karting
