                                                                                                      This is a fairly basic apartment really but is very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The owners arranged for transfer from/to the airport which worked perfectly. The view is absolutely stunning and we spent hours just watching the ships and boats in the bay from the balcony. It was very hot indeed, especially at the start of our visit, so the air conditioning in the bedrooms was very welcome at night. All the facilities worked fine and the owners were helpful when we needed help but were unobtrusive the rest of the time. It was our daughter's 15th birthday while we were there and we were very touched that they took the trouble to buy her a small present. A very nice touch. The location is well out of the town centre and very peaceful. It's not far to St Jakov's beach which was very pleasant. We didn't try the rocky swimming area close by. Be warned that there are a lot of steep steps to climb to access the apartment and even more to the beach, so if you have problems this may not be for you. Thoroughly recommended.

The accommodation suits 2 people , not terribly spacious but is in a quiet location. The location was excellent and a 10 minute walk to the old town and it's many attractions. The nearest beach is a short distance away but down a steep flight of steps, so you need to be fairly fit! A well stocked supermarket is also conveniently just at the top of the road. The owners were helpful throughout the whole process , and greeted us on arrival where they provided additional information to us about the area, and places to visit. The accommodation lacks a settee , though a fotoon is available but not the same. That would be the only criticism . Overall a great location for 2 people wishing to use it as a great base to explore the area of its many attractions.
