Beautiful Portugal, wonderful apartment
This was our first visit to Portugal & the location of the apartment was ideal , the apartment itself was clean & had everything you needed & the rooftop area had lovely views over the river & the bar-b-q was very useful, all in all a very good holiday & so many places to visit within short driving distances
Excellent stay in Lagoa
Lovely apartment with good views of the river and bridge, well equipped and large enough to comfortably take four adults. Found roof terrace just a little bit too breezy but then again it was March so this is not unexpected. The weather was excellent for March approx 21 degrees on average so was not in the apartment a great deal as it was perfect weather for walking and getting around to see the various local sights. Two nearby restaurants within walking distance were used on several occasions both served good food, but we preferred the Casa do Pasto Calvario restaurant which was the closest and also the cheapest with the biggest portions for food wine and beer. Lucy was very good with information and Suzanne was also very helpful as we arrived at the apartment slightly early. Would be happy to go back at another time.
Excellent appartment as described. Everything you need. Quiet but near bars, restaurants and supermarkets.
Back again hopefully. Lucy very helpful and Suzanne 'on-site' also very helpful and prompt with queries
An excellent apartment in a quiet location
We had a great holiday in May enjoying lots of sun but with a breeze to keep us reasonably cool. Most impressive at this time of year were the jacaranda trees which were still in flower. The apartment was ideal - it is in a quiet location but within easy reach of supermarket, restaurant and beach. It's really well equipped with everything you could possibly need, including a juicer for all those gorgeous oranges you can buy at the roadside. It's well maintained and has really wonderful views from the terrace. Susanna was very friendly and helpful which added to our enjoyment of the holiday. I would highly recommend this apartment, although it took us a while to get used to the barking dogs which seem to be a feature of Portuguese life. This was our first visit to the Algarve and we will definitely be returning.
A Great Apartment
We visited in early July 2010 and weather was very hot and sunny. Have visited Algarve many times before and found this to be a superb, comfortable and well equiped apartment.
The views from the bedroom balcony and the roof terrace were great. The roof terrace is very large and with the awning you could sun bath or sit in the shade, a nice feature is the availability of the Kitchen room with fridge so you could keep drinks cool in the heat.
A quiet village location but so easy to get out and about without any long journeys.
Ferragudo is well worth a visit,a typical village as yet not ruined by overdevelopment.
From Geoff & Vivien, Lancashire
Visited October 2009. The weather was fantastic, near to 30 degrees every day. The apartment is totally private on the top floor and so is the roof terrace, and in total can be described as perfect, with no faults. A great feature was when the front and rear sliding doors were open, a lovely breeze swept throughout without the need for air conditioning. A car is essential but we visited most places without a long drive. The owners are extremely polite and Diane who looked after us there, was particularly helpful and obliging. Don't forget to visit the two local restaurants on the Estombar road, both 10 minutes walk away, excellent food at very reasonable prices.
The apartment is situated on the edge of Calvario, a quiet and typically Portuguese village, overlooking the shores of the Arade River. Local good and reasonable restaurants/bars (serving freshly caught fish and traditional dishes) are within a few minutes walk. The pretty hilltop village of Estombar with its characteristic Algarvian church (a national monument) is a 10 min. walk away. Some of the Algarve's finest sandy beaches are located along this stretch of coastline, the nearest being at Ferragudo (4km). Slide & Splash waterpark and Penina Golf course are just down the road 5 min. away. Other golf courses; Gramacho, Vale do Pinta, Vale do Milho, Morgado, Silves and Armendoeira are within 10 min. drive. Approx. 40 minutes drive to Algarve International Autodrome. Although just off the beaten track, many have commented how central and conveniently situated the apartment is, a stone's throw away from all major attractions and tourist facilities.
