Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Mexilhoeira Grande - Vale da Ribiero

1 bed apartment, sleeps 4, 10 min from Meia Praia Beach

A large 1 bedroom apartment finished to a very high design.

It has a fully fitted luxury kitchen, all appliances and utensils, a breakfast bar, dining table for 6 and a large lounge that opens onto a 15 M2 terrace.

The terrace gets sun all afternoon and has a table, chairs and sun-lounger. The terrace is 20 feet from a beautiful pool.

'What strikes you is how tranquil the apartment village is.. the tension of work melts away. Everything is of a high standard. Meia Praia beach is rightly famous with wonderful beach cafes that serve tuna steak and wine. Just what we wanted. And it is always sunny.'

The Algarve - a region blessed with sunshine and warmth.

Long, sandy beaches. Hidden coves. Lush, perfectly manicured golf courses. The seductive smells of freshly grilled seafood, of figs, almonds and pine resin. Warm Atlantic Seas, heated by equatorial currents. And the sunshine. Always the sunshine. Brought together in one word: Algarve. More than two thousand years of rich cultural influence, celebrated through major festivals and village feasts. A thriving agricultural hinterland together with all of the benefits you would expect from one of the world's most popular tourist destinations. An exceptional location whether your aim is to invest, live or holiday.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

About Mark Hutcheon

I live in Blackheath in London and work in the fitness industry. I am Arsenal fan and like to do triathlon's.

Mark Hutcheon purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Mark Hutcheon chose Mexilhoeira Grande

I was taken by how unspoilt and naturally stunning the West Algarve was. When a new motorway was built connecting Faro to the west Algarve in 50 mins, I felt it made such a wonderful location accessible. When you see or stay at Vale da Riberia you will experience how tranquil and relaxing it is - and that quality appealed to me and my wife.

What makes this apartment unique

The first morning we had fresh local oranges and sourdough bread with coffee on the terrace, after a swim in the pool, as the sun hot 35 degrees, was when we knew we would love the place. There is an amazing kitchen in the apartment that I love to cook in and a breakfast bar area where I would serve steaks and red wine. We holiday every year there enjoying the majestic Meia Preia beach and the character of Lagos in the evening....

Our stay - September 2010

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a weeks stay and the accommodation is beautiful and in an amazing location. A car is an absolute must but it is so worth it!

The booking process was smooth and Mark (the owner) was able to respond with answers to any queries and additional photographs of the accommodation and surrounding areas.

We were met my Shaun upon our arrival and received a friendly welcome and had the opportunity to ask any questions. The accommodation was found to be clean and tidy (apart from some signs of mosquito squatting left by the previous visitors)!

The pool and surrounding areas would leave you believing you are in heaven. Although it is a communal area we found to be sharing with only 4-6 other guests/residents on a daily basis. It is peaceful and attractive all the way around.

The location of the accommodation is perfect for visiting other areas. We managed to visit Portamao, Silves and Logos all within a short distance by car, each with amazing sites and beaches. If you are a runner, and we did abuse the views for such activity, beware of the dog at the top of the road ... although I'm sure his bark is worse than his bite! :)

The only thing that I did find to be disappointing is that the accommodation is absent of some of the facilities advertised. I chose this accommodation (over and above others) as it advertised internet access and a safe. Neither of the facilities are provided at the location so beware if these are major factors in your stay. The internet access was easily resolved as many local bars and restaurants provide free wifi access.

In summary, we had a fantastic holiday and it was very much home from home. We would definitely use the accommodation again and look forward to doing so in the near future. We would definitely recommend this property to others!

El apartamento es perfecto..muy tranquilo incluye todo ta como se anuncia, los únicos problemas que encontré fueron los mosquitos..si hace calor comer en la terraza es peligroso, se hecha de menos aire aconcidionado (aunque es una zona que no suele hacer mucho calor). El propietario dice que admite mascotas..pero la persona encargada de en la zona nos dijo que estaban prohibidas en al urbanización. Por lo demas todo perfecto muy buena realción calidad precio

Great Holidays

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed two weeks in this apartment and had fantastic holidays.
First of all, the booking process was very easy and Mark, the owner answered each and every question that occured.
After our arrival at the apartment we were welcomed and everything was explained to us. Further we had an information folder as back up with some advices for good restaurants, etc.
The apartment is as described. It's very comfortable and very well equipped. One has everything one needs.
Vale de Ribeira is a quiet complex. The apartment has a nice pool view. But it was never to noisy.
The aparmtent is a good point to start excursion to several beaches....a car is needed indeed.
We definitely would come back.
Thanks for everything.
