Holiday in Portugal

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 6, 4 adults and 2 children. The apartment was large/clean and well equipped. Ideal position for walking to the local supermarket which had all your needs, lovely fresh bread and pastries. Aldi just a bit further to walk!. Walking distance to the Old town and Beach.

Nice clean swimming pool.

The owner was easy to contact at all times. Very enjoyable holiday would book again.

Highly recommended, lovely modern, large apartment in a great complex that's ideal for families

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous 10 day stay over Easter, the weather was fantastic and the apartment was brilliant for my family (all 7 of us), it was big enough to allow privacy on separate balconies or accommodate us all in the lounge for family evenings. It has all the amenities you would need for cooking and two great bathrooms. The pool was great and the younger children's pool made for safe entertainment for everyone. We even had a tennis court and table tennis to entertain us. The location was great with local restaurants and a supermarket within a short walk and the beautiful centre of Albufeira and it's beaches a little further down the road, which allowed easy access but none of the disturbance of being right in the middle of it. I can honestly say it was the most relaxing and entertaining holiday I have ever had with my family and would like to thank Duarte and Diane for the use of their fabulous, and spotless, apartment.

Superb Apartment in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful apartment in June/July 2016 as a party of 6 people. It is excellent, everything you need is there. Its was spotlessly clean, and very comfortable.

The booking process with Durate was seamless and was very efficient - thanks Durate.

The apartment is situated on a lovely clean and well maintained complex, the pool is great and always very clean and I have to say was very quiet and relaxing. The individual sunbeds were great, no fighting for spaces. The complex is quiet with an excellent local restaurant on site, with Albufeira old town a genuine 10 to 15 mins (max) walk away.

Would thoroughly recommend this apartment and we will be back for sure.

Thanks Durate - Excellent holiday in a lovely apartment.

Lovely Family Holiday Base

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 10 days this summer (2015), extremely hapy with this modern and very well equiped apartment. Exactly as described. We have young children and the apartment and enclosed pool area were perfect for them. The information provided by the owner was full and concise, so it was easy to find and access. The pool area was a good size and lots of beds to use. I would definitley recommend this to anyone.

The walk into the old town is a good 20 minutes, but a pleasant walk, even if there are no places to stop on the way (not great when it's raining - we picked a poor week weather wise!). The highlight of the holiday was the restaurant attached to the complex (Farm Village Restaurante) where Fabio and his family provided amazing local food and excellent hospitality. We hope to return to this apartment one day!
