This is a really beautiful apartment, possibly the best we have ever stayed in. It is split level with lots of sun terraces accessible from every room, upstairs and down. The pool was clean and had plenty of sunbeds. We were a short walk from the town centre and beach where there were plenty of restaurants to choose from. We had a fabulous holiday here. We enjoyed Pizzeria Portobello which was very close to the apartment. Boca do Mar and Na Esplanada were both fantastic too.

The house is semi-detached and well situated above the ocean, the views and sunsets really lovely. One can hear the waves crashing onto the shore, very soothing. We visited in winter (mid February) so the rain did interupt at times. Nevertheless there is so much sight seeing to be done in the vacinity, so not a problem. It is a bit of a walk down steps to the beach below, coming back up slightly more strenuous... the beach is lovely and the surrounding clifs amazing. The central heating worked well so we were comfortable. The house is very clean and tastefully furnished. Because we were home most evenings the lack of English TV and finding them on a satelite system with 700 international channels was frustrating. We could not stream from our computer as the WiFi unfortunately was "less than slow" and at times practically non-existant!! I suppose in summer it would be totally different as there would be so much more to do outdoors. There is a small selection of dvd's and a ton of music cd's. The BBQ area is well appointed and would be fabulous in summer. João visited on the first afternoon to ensure we understood everything. Nazare is 10 km away with a wonderful promenade area, with abundant restuarants. Wonderful clean long sandy beach and the vibe good, even in winter. Overall the stay was very pleasant. Robert, as feedback, you could do with a few more dinner forks as there were only 2 normal sized ones and 4 rather small ones. We also wanted to make a casserole in the oven which needed a lid. You only have one large lasagne dish. The broom, had no handle so struggled to sweep... Otherwise, the kitchen has every thing that is needed. Would highly recommend this accomodation.

The welcome pack was generous and helped us start our holiday relaxed and looked after. The apartment is only a short walk from the beach and in a wonderful small town which although clearly set up for tourism is pleasantly quiet. The location is ideal for day trips out across Portugal. We really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to go back.
