Lovely homely apartment

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment which was very well equipped making it a real home from home. Love the quiet location of Sao Rafael whilst still easily accessible to other places. Would have given 5 stars but the apartment was advertised as having free WiFi and we couldn't get connected at all. It didn't work at all during our week's stay. The owner was lovely and helpful and is going to update the 'important info' in the apartment to include more specific instructions about the Wi-Fi.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much, Carole, for your nice review. You were five stars guests. As for the (mobile) WiFi, in fact I hadn't thought before that specific instructions to work with it (it needs to be charged and has a button on/off) would be necessary, but I thank you for your suggestion, that is very helpfull.

Très bien

  • 5 of 5

Très bon accueil de la part de la propriétaire. L'appartement correspond en tout point à la description (confort, climatisation, propreté, etc...). Proche de la plage (5 mn à pied) et des commerces (5 mn en voiture). Appartement à recommander vivement.

Estadia em moradia São Rafael

  • 4 of 5

Adorámos a estadia em todos os aspetos, desde a simpatia do proprietário até à qualidade do alojamento e do respetivo apetrechamento. Como sugestão, apenas sugiro que melhore a qualidade de acesso à internet, uma vez que é um bem essencial e imprescindível nos dias de hoje! De resto, tudo ÓTIMO!!! PARABÉNS!!

Nice apartment near swimming pool and near the see

  • 5 of 5

We have spent very good holidays in this quiet and nice apartment.

It is comfortable and well equipped.

Having 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms for a family of 4 people is very good.

And we have always eaten on the balcony with a nice point of view.

The swimming pool is very near (less than 1 mn on foot) and free, and the beach too (7 mn on foot).

A small supermarket takes place a few minutes on foot from the apartment, and other big supermarkets can be reached in 8 mn with the car.

Very good holidays !

In french :

Nous avons passé de très bonnes vacances dans cet appartement calme et agréable.

Il est confortable et bien équipé.

Avoir 2 chambres et 2 salles de bain est très appréciable pour une famille de 4 personnes.

Et nous avons pris tous nos repas sur le balcon pour profiter de la jolie vue sur le quartier résidentiel et du soleil.

La piscine, gratuite, est très proche (moins d'1 minute à pied), et la plage également (7 minutes à pied).

Un petit supermarché se situe à quelques minutes à pied de l'appartement, et d'autres grands supermarchés sont à 8 minutes en voiture.

De très bonnes vacances !

Amicalement. Graça et Francisco

São Rafael
Car: recommended

San Rafael is a resort quality, quiet and very well preserved, characterized by the harmony of its white houses and the surrounding vegetation. It is located very close to the beaches - the closer (5m to 10m walk) are San Rafael and Arrifes. The village has an excellent free access pool for the associated residents and a swimming pool for children, and has leisure facilities (library, games, music) for free access by the pool. In the pool space there is also a small cafeteria.

Albufeira Marina, with its shops and terraces, lies at a distance of 5 minutes drive away, and provides a wide range of water sports. The town of Albufeira, with its intense nightlife, is a 10-minute drive away.

Are excellent, golf courses nearby, highlighting the Salgados, with 18 holes (10 minutes drive).

Access to Faro airport is simple and fast.
