About Miguel

I am a positive and laid back person, dedicated to my family and friends. I love to meet, mingle and interact with other people, be friendly and available to help others if need be. I am tolerant and understanding towards people in general, but I like to relate to educated and respectful people. I am also involved with artistic projects and have training in Cultural Programming and Visual Arts. I like art in general, from literature and cinema to painting and sculpture. I care about society and the environment and have a lot of respect for animals and nature. In a nutshell, I am aware of what is happening in the world and around me.

Miguel purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Miguel chose Quarteira

I like Quarteira very much and that is why I chose to buy this property. This was where I was born, when it was still a small and picturesque fishermen village, and I have witnessed its develpements up to these days. It may have lost its picturesque side, but in return it has envolved and it has now many advantages that make life easier and more comfort to those who live or spend their holidays here. This property has good access to the highway which allow you to enjoy all the region and its diverse landscape without taking too much time. It is close to golf courses, horse riding centres, theme parks, hiking trails, water sports etc.. Quarteira offers a huge variety of cultural and leisure events and its golden sandy beach is one of the best in Europe.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is in an excelente and quiet location - being the final building in Quarteira, before the beach stretches on to Vale do Lobo – and it is part of a private condominium with interior patio and private communal pool. It is a great apartment with a large terrace with a wonderful view over the beach. It enjoys lifeguarded beaches with thatched parasols and sunbeds. One can find a wide variety of good restaurants, bars and shops all within walking distance. The property is part of a private condominium, with inner patio/garden, shared pool, indoor parking space near the lift and doorkeeper. It has modern decoration, where light colors prevail.

Great apartment in perfect position

  • 4 of 5

What a great find. The apartment is very comfortable and had everything to in it to make an enjoyable stay. Near the beach and plenty of eating places and near a supermarket. If you have a car, the parking is adjacent. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners. They were there to meet us with the key and arranged transfers to and from the airport. We have booked again to go in October 2016.

Great apartment right by the sea

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed a lovely holiday at this great family run apartment for myself and my girlfriend. The location was perfect with beach and sea views and near to the main strip for restaurants and shops. On arrival there was a very welcome basket of snacks, fruit, and a nice bottle of wine chilling in the fridge. The owners welcomed us on arrival and explained everything about the apartment, nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely return to Quarteira and these lovely apartments at Oceanides.

Two of Quarteira's main attractions are the bustling Fish & Veg Market located by the fishing harbour at the west end of town every mornings and the Weekly Market, also known as Gipsy Market, each Wednesday morning, just outside Quarteira, in Fonte Santa.

For those who enjoy adventure or just to enjoy a different day out, the AquaShow waterpark, 10 minutes away from the property, is a must! Water slides, pools and crazy golf along with tropical birds and the Europe's biggest water coaster all in one theme park - the kids are going to love it!

June is known for the festive parties celebrating the popular saints: St. António, St. João and St. Pedro. The celebrations in Quarteira, are considered to be the town's main tourist attraction and one of the most entrenched traditions. Three evenings of great joy (June 12th, June 23rd, June 28th) in which the saints are the inspiration for the parade, choreographies, songs, costumes, as well as the entire decoration of Avenida Infante Sagres (the promenade in front of the property). The groups in the contest do their final performance in the main square between the Oceanides Building and the "Gaivota" beach bar (admission free).

At the end of June, during 4 days, the MED Festival takes place in the Historical Centre of Loulé. It is included in the itinerary of greatest “World Music” festivals in Europe. For several days, the streets of Loulé’s historic centre are transformed into a giant Mediterranean bazaar with music, food and activities for the whole family, bringing life and excitement to them. Benefiting from the presence in the city of many well-known names from the universe of “world music”. Advertising itself under the slogan of “music and much more”, the festival also presents other forms of art, including handicraft exhibitions, dance performances and street theatre. To complete this display of the typical culture of various countries, the festival ground will be filled with a number of different restaurants where you can sample some of the tastes of the traditional cuisine of each of the countries taking part. Throughout this festival, Loulé, with its narrow winding streets, where it is still possible to sense the atmosphere of Moorish times, will be a real mixture of cultures that nonetheless have many features in common.

Quarteira's Book & Small Crafts Fair is always a popular event held in the Avenida Infante Sagres (on the promenade - 5 minutes away from the property), in August. This is a good opportunity to meet authors and purchase some great cut-price books as well as pick up some inexpensive Portuguese handicrafts (admission free).

The New Year is another famous and busy season in the Algarve with several free public street parties, concerts and fireworks taking place across the region. Quarteira's New Years Eve celebrations are held in and around the Praça do Mar (the square in front of the Tourist Office and Praça do Mar Art Gallery). When the clock strikes twelve, visitors can enjoy a approx. 10 minutes fireworks display.
