“4 night stay”
Reviewed 21 November 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This is a well presented and comfortable apartment based a short walk from the beach.

The apartment is on the 3rd floor (no lift) which was not a problem for us. The booking process was very straightforward and detailed information on getting there etc. was sent in advance. We were met by a bi-lingual agent who showed us around and handed over the keys.

There was a mix-up with meeting times possibly due to my relying on texts rather than making a simple phone call giving our eta, so we had to wait for an hour before getting in.

All of the required utilities are at hand and the 'welcome' bottle of Vino Verdhe waiting in the fridge was a very nice touch. There were also condiments etc. in the cupboards on a use and replace if finished basis and plenty of cooking utilities.

Ideal for eating in, we had a choice of eating in the kitchen, lounge-diner or terrace!. The terrace is also ideal for sun lovers - or for those venturing out along the sandy bay, there is use of a beach parasol and wind break.

Situated on the 3rd floor, it is high enough to have a peaceful nap outside - as long as a local dog in a garden nearby is not disturbed. This wasn't too much of a problem as it usually coincided with the football… I assume that the owner was out at a bar because 10mins after it finished the barking stopped! Apart from that, it is in a very quiet area.

Equipped with the detailed instructions, it was simple to find by car. There is free parking outside and we also had free use of the garage for storing cycles. It is not far from the train station so I assume that it is also convenient for visitors on foot to visit local areas, although I believe it is quicker via coach to Lisbon/Coimbra.

The wi-fi was fast and we experienced no downtime. The PC and printer available is a good addition although we did not make use of it. There are also plenty of books/DVDs/CDs/HiFi and TV so no time to get bored!

Overall, we enjoyed our stay here. We believe it was excellent value and would stay again.

“Feel at home :)”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed for 4 days with our little daughter. All went well and we really feel at home, relaxing on the couch, watching movies, playing, and with all things we needed: a good living room with computer, tv, music, a sunny balcony, a good room and a full equipped kitchen. The person responsible for the house was very nice! The only downsize is the lack of an elevator in the building. It is very close to the beach, only 5 minutes walking.

“Perfect apartment for a relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I enjoyed a wonderful break in "cosy apartment" in June.
The location was perfect for someone without a car - close to the train station, beach, supermarkets and town centre and yet in a peaceful area set back from the coast.
The apartment was clean and very comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen and lovely
large patio area for outdoor dining and sunbathing.
I hope to stay there again.

“It does what it says on the tin!”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This apartment has just about every thing you could want for a pleasant stay -well equipped
kitchen, comfy bed,TV,DVD,Computer and Printer,lovely spacious balcony with sunbeds,large table and chairs.In addition there is an iron and board,beach chairs, sun umbrellas ,shopping bags and even slippers!
Sandra , the agent ,was most helpful. The only thing I might suggest to improve the experience was better lighting in the sitting room and each side of the bed for those like us who like to read in bed.It is not surprising to see in the guest book that repeat bookings are not uncommon.
