Die Wohnung liegt optimal und sehr gut eingerichtet. Die Vermieterin ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Der Ort ist schön weit weg vom Touristenrummel, die meisten sind einheimische Besucher. Ich kann die Wohnung sehr gerne weiter empfehlen.
We had the fabulous opportunity of staying in this apartment for 2 weeks in November. I could not have been happier with choosing this place.
The apartment is located right in front of the beach. The view from everywhere in the apartment is magnificent. The location is unbeatable, you are in the center of Furadouro and front row on the beach. The owner has a private parking garage, but we opted for parking on the street which was very convenient as well.
The apartment is located on the second floor and you don’t have anybody living above you. It is very quiet and private. My husband was concerned before arriving about the noise and internet speed since he had to work from the apartment. Isabel, the owner, clarified all of our questions before getting there. Indeed, the apartment was very quiet, no noise from anywhere, and the internet speed was superb (even better that the one we have in the US).
One thing I didn't know that happily surprised me was that the apartment is brand new. It is new construction throughout the apt. The materials used and the finishes were very nice. The apt. is very big with 3 bedrooms. all of them have big closets and furniture with lots of storage. The beds and mattresses were brand new. Plenty of pillows and blankets to suit your sleeping desires. I loved having the rolling shades that black out the room entirely.
The bathrooms were spotless and a nice size. You have a big tub in one and a standing shower in the other one. Everything clean, no mold, stains etc…
The kitchen is very big and has a very large table that can sit up yo 10 people I think. I love to cook and Isabel had very nice pots, a mixer, pyrex dishes and everything you could need.
Having a nice TV with cable and a DVR was very enjoyable.
I would recommend this apartment to everyone!!! I would love to see what it is like in the summer. It was great in the winter!
Isabel was an outstanding host. She made sure we felt at home and knew our way around this beautiful part of Portugal. She told us everything about the festivals and all the insider info that you would only get from having family living there. Thanks Isabel!!! We will be back.
Try the Pao de Lo, it's a delicious bread/dessert typical from Ovar
