excellent view, this apartment is a great find
Party of 5 adults and one baby (11 months) It was perfect falling asleep to the sound of the waves and waking up to the view. This is an excellent apartment. It is very spacious and well equipped. I wouldn't take young children though because of the balcony which, being on the second floor, is quite a height and would be very stressful. There is no lift so it is not suitable for anyone with mobilty difficulties. The "ambience music" was broken which was disappointing as I wanted to know what it is! It was very hot so the air conditioning was invaluable with the baby there. Vitor took care of our airport transfers at a very competetive rate so I would recommend this, It would have been good to have had the choice to buy a "welcome pack" having arrived at midnight with a young baby and not even a bottle of water, tea bag or coffee in the apartment. Vitor supplied a travel cot and high chair at no extra cost. This is a lovely, quiet area of town especially at night, However, a word of warning about this as I had my bag snatched yards from the apartment door late one night. We know that this happened on this stretch more than once during our stay.The police are aware, I am not saying don't go there just saying be careful. We would definitely recommend this apartment. In fact, whilst there we had people asking us how to book it. It is walking distance of anywhere in the old town and there is a small but adequate supermarket 2 minutes walk away. I wouldn't bother going to Algarve Shopping (10 euros taxi way) as it it a generic mall which could be anywhere in the world. Don't miss the chance to see Mario Miguel, the man who gave Sweet Caroline to the world! D&C is the best bar in town and Rock Cafe is worth a visit. Just along the path the Beach Basket is wonderful as is Dom Pipas in town. All in all, this was a great find and we were very happy with it.
Tourists without a Car,
