Great Property - excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as listed and in an excellent location for exploring both Praia da Oura and Albufeira. The apartment is spacious, modern and has everything you might need (we have an infant daughter and had everything we needed for her and more!). The bedrooms are big and the 2 bathrooms, seemingly unheard of in a similar price range. All transactions were handled timely and professionally, including payment, car transfers, meet and greet and when we encountered a small issue with the hot water it was rectified within 1 hour of me calling.

We would definitely stay here again if we find ourselves in the Algarve.

lovely holiday

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from 3rd stay in this area of Portugal.

1st time in this lovely apartment great patio for alfresco dining or glass of wine and very convenient for beaches and strip/old town.Although this apartment was superior to apartments we have previously stayed in would have appreciated a welcome pack Tea/Milk/etc available in previouse appartments(arrived Sunday and supermarket nearby closed) Would not hesitate to recommend apartment to relatives and friends and nice welcome from Liz.

wonderful holiday

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for two weeks at this great penthouse apartment, from the very first email everything was taken care of from arranging transfers from the airport to Liz meeting us on arrival with the keys and all the information we needed she was only a phone call away if anything went wrong (nothing did) great customer service. The rooms were clean and spacious with a massive terrace overlooking the pool great for sitting having breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening. Pool area was had lots of space also four sunbeds provided for your soul use throughout your stay Fantastic No getting up early to put your towel down

The apartment is half way between the old town and the strip with lots of bars and restruants nearby my favourite was only 100yrd from the apartment Calipto beautiful food, great service and very reasonable.

All in all had a great time, no complaints about the apartment at all and looking to go back again next year. Would recommend this apartment to all my friends and family.
