“Lovely apartment”

Myself and my partner stayed in this apartment for a week this month. We booked with short notice and took off. The owner of the apartment Julia emailed me in advance with maps and instructions of how to pick up our keys, it was all very clear and easy to follow. She also recommended yellowfishtransfers.com as a transfers company. These guys were amazing, very punctual and friendly. When we arrived at the apartment it was late at night but access and key collection was very simple after a very chilled journey from the airport. The house had everything we might need, with a few buckets and spades thrown in. The complex was very quiet and chilled out, with a pool and tennis court just around the side, this area was spotless, very very clean and tidy and the pool was blissfully calm. We were about a ten minute walk from the strip and about 15/20 min walk from the old town. We preferred the Old town which meant we got taxi's at night etc, these came to roughly 5 euro for a trip home.

All in all we had a very chilled holiday, our only complaint would be the distance from the old town, but considering the amount of fabulous food available we were glad of the exercise.

Very pleased with this accomodation!

“Perfect apt. Good value for money. Nice owners. Will recommend to friends.”

The apartment is really better as described. You'll find there more than everything you need to enjoy your stay. The only weak point of this apt is that it has no internet access and a very small TV-set with poor reception quality (but I hardly believe that you are going to come there to watch TV). The apartment block could be found easily due to its neighborhood with Algarve International Hospital. It's location might seem a bit distant for first opinion, but if you have a car very soon you'll find it to be almost perfect - in one hand the place is quite and has a good parking and in another hand you can reach everything you need in 5 -10 minutes. Moreover it's stupid to bound yourself with one beach nearby, cause there's a lot of them all over the coast and every has something special for you to discover. As ocean water is rather cold the pool in apartment block garden seems perfect - it's big enough and not too crowdy. The owners are very nice and helpful people.
