Wonderful stay - again!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Straight from the Heart last year and loved it so much we returned again this year. The house is lovely - very well-equipped, perfectly located near the marina, the old town and shops and restaurants and only a five minute walk from the bus station. Veronica and Bruno are very welcoming and cannot do enough for you. We highly recommend this property and are hoping to return again.

excellente adresse à Faro

  • 5 of 5

Arrivées avec presuqe 3 heune de train), Veronica et Bruno sont venus nous chercher à la gare et nous ont accueillies chaleureusement (merci pour le plateau de bienvenue avec l'essentiel pour le p'tit déj du lendemain). Très jolie maison, décorée avec beaucoup de goût, dans laquelle nous nous sommes senties comme chez nous.

Elle est très bien placée (commerces, supermarchés, gares, ferry pour les îles, vieille ville...), tout peut se faire à pied.

On sent que Veronica et Bruno ont plaisir à recevoir.

Une adresse à garder !

merci pour tout ! obrigada !

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Straight from the Heart. The house is immaculately presented and there is everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Veronica and Bruno were wonderful hosts and responded very quickly to requests. They even met us at the bus station and drove us to the house on the first day. We thought that the welcome tray was a lovely touch and indicative of their hospitality. The balcony is a great place to enjoy a glass of wine at any time of day! We loved the position of the house - it was so close to everything. A two minute walk brought us to the old town and the marina and we were able to walk to the bus station and the train station in about five. We enjoyed exploring Faro and the local area on foot and by bus and train. There is an excellent bus service from the airport which costs euro2.22 and it is also easy to reach places such as Vilamoura by bus. There are plenty of places to eat near the house and three supermarkets within easy walking distance. When we return to Faro we will stay here again and wouldn't even consider looking for anywhere else. We cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you, Veronica and Bruno, for your hospitality and for providing us with so many lovely memories of our stay in Faro.
