“Great location and excellent facilities”

We stayed in Faro for 1 week at the end of July. The apartment is in an excellent location and just outside the old town. There is a shop round the corner and we found the flat had everything we needed. The balcony is lovely and gets the sun until about 3 in the afternoon. The kitchen has all equipment needed, Wifi signal is good and the air con works well....lovely shower as well.

Great place to stay for a long weekend or longer. The old town is lovely and quaint with some excellent restaurants and some quirky bars. There was a fantastic sea food festival on when we were there so it is worth looking to see if anything is on. Easy access to the local beaches via the water taxi's and plenty to do in Faro.

“An Attractive, Comfortable Apartment in the Heart of the City”

My wife and I fully enjoyed this third-floor apartment during our one-month stay in Faro. It is modern, full of light with an outstanding terrace, a working fireplace and both a washing machine and dryer. Every morning we watched the nesting storks from the kitchen windows and many an afternoon ate lunch in full sunshine on the large terrace. The manager, who is German, speaks English fluently and was helpful in orienting us to our new surroundings. The location, just outside the walls of the old city, a 10-minute walk from the bus and train stations, and a short cab ride to the airport, is ideal. The only possible drawbacks are the steep entry staircase (we had no problem climbing it) and a closet-sized bathroom with no bidet and a stall shower designed doorless. But this did not take away from our comfort.

“Excellent Stay”

We were met outside and taken straight from our taxi to our apartment. Everything was clean and there were many extra touches that made it feel like home. Lovely decorations, loads of storage space and the large kitchen was stocked with many essentials; sugar, tea, washing up liquid, herbs and spices! There were enough glasses, cutlery, plates etc for about six people and plenty of storage space throughout. The oven was full sized, other appliances included a dish washer, microwave, washing machine. The bedroom was small but comfortable with good lighting and an archway which let in light from the living room. Excellent, roomy shower and large tv, a shelf with books, comfortable sofa. The balcony/terrace was great to eat breakfat on surrounded by beautiful flowers and interesting views of the rooftops. it would have been nice to have two sunloungers. The position of the apartment is ideal; a short walk to the railway staion, bus terminal, marina, museums, cathedral and many restaurants. it was lovely to be surrounded by cobbled streets and the city wall. A fabulous, good value place to spend either a few days or months!!
