No questions went unanswered and felt very confident before travelling to Albufeira. When we arrived we were promptly met and let into this beautiful apartment. We were shown all the basics and given the usual directions to the local food stores etc. The flat itself is very spacious and has everything you need. Flat screen TV, WiFi, air conditioning, coffee machine, iron, kettle, etc. Even an orange juicer which we took advantage of and made amazing fresh oj every morning. The beds were very comfortable and with the electric shutters the rooms were easily darkened to allow a lay in. The sofa corner unit is also very comfortable as well which was good for an afternoon nap with all the windows open. Location is perfect! 2 minutes walk to the lift that takes you down to the beach. There are also loads, maybe a hundred restaurants within a 5 to 10 minute walk as well. We ate very well, and the restaurants that were recommended by Jose were all extremely good. I can also highly recommend castelo do Mar just a short walk away and overlooking the marina. They took very good care of us. We really liked this part of Albufeira as it's close to so many nice restaurants and is far enough away that there is no noise from them all. Free parking right outside was also a good bonus, as we rented a car to do some exploring. Only thing I thought would be a good addition is a safe for passports etc, but that's just a small thing. The flat was very safe and the front door is like Fort knox. I would very highly recommend this flat and it's owner.

The villa was everything we expected and more. Spacious, especially if you bag the top bedroom with two balconies, but every room has a terrace and some nice nooks and crannies to escape with a good book. The wendy house was a hit with my 2 year old and he spent most of the day in there, handy when the sun was so hot. The indian restaurant at the top of the road is first class, non greasy and loads of choice! Beautiful beaches within 15 minute walk with beach bars and lovely soft sand! What more could you ask for. Many Thanks for an excellent holiday! C & Family
