Property manager waiting for us from airport, showed us around apartment and provided good advice re local amenties. superbly appointed and spotless apartment with stunning views and relaxing gardens/pool area. Limited number of local restaurants but tried most and all were good to excellent. much better value for money than the more touristy areas of the algarve. nearby town of Tavira visited by train easily and cheaply with beautiful architecture, shops and restaurants. We would definitely return and probably not bother with car hire, since the train station is close by.
