My family of 4 had a fantastic holiday in Porches, the house was perfect, it was very clean and also very spacious, the outdoor area is a gem, splash pool which was great after the beach, BBQ, sun loungers etc!
Porches is a lovely village with a pharmacy, small supermarket, bars and a few restaurants which are very good.
There is a large supermarket, waterpark (which the kids loved) and also some fantastic beaches within a 5 minute drive.
We booked through Algarvacation (Jeroen and Lauren) they organised the car hire at the airport and also met us at the house and made us feel very welcome, we will definetely be using them again.
We had a ball!!!
The pictures show the property exactly as it is - clean, spacious, modern and with many wonderful outdoor spaces. The pool area is a delight and was perfect for cooling off at the end of a day at one of the nearby beaches. It was also great for eating outdoors with the BBQ. Everything was in great condition and had everything we needed (washing machine, plenty of beach towels, WIFI, coffee maker, etc.). The property feels very private and is great for a quiet and relaxing break.
Carlos picked us up from the airport and was a wonderful host in Porches. The town itself is very pretty, with good options for breakfast, some outstanding restaurants, and everything one needs from a local mini supermarket and frutaria, etc. We walked to some wonderful beaches most days, and found the town and house to be a haven to come back to each evening.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to someone who was looking for something in The Algarve that felt more local than a large modern complex; it really feels like you're part of a small community.
Das Ferienhaus liegt sehr zentral in einer typisch portugiesischen Siedlung, sodass man viele Sehenswürdigkeiten der Algarve sehr gut mit dem Auto erreichen kann. Das Ferienhaus ist sehr gut ausgestattet mit allem was man braucht. Der dazugehörige Pool ist sehr schön für eine kleine Abkühlung. Restaurants und Bars sowie große und kleine Supermärkte befinden sich in unmittelbarer Nähe. Der Vermieter ist stets hilfsbereit und hat unsere Fragen vor bzw. während des Urlaubes sofort beantwortet.
Wir würden dieses Feriendomizil auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen.
Das Haus hat uns sofort bei Betreten gefallen! Es ist ein Reihenendhaus in einer ganz normalen portugiesischen Siedlung mit zwei Balkonen und einer Terrasse und einem kleinen Pool, der ideal für eine kleine Abkühlung ist. Die Ausstattung war gut, es war wirklich sehr sauber. Bestes Highlight: superbreite Betten, in denen man gut schlafen kann. Toll war auch, dass wir nach einer Woche eine "Fee" da hatten, die unsere Betten frisch bezogen und sauber gemacht hat.
Porches liegt zentral, sodass man mit dem Mietwagen alle schönen Strände und Städe gut erreichen kann. Wir wurden vom Vermieter gut betreut und können das Haus sehr empfehlen.
