Well positioned apartment for touring

4 of 5
Good sized, spacious and clean apartment. Sleeping arrangements comfortable for accommodating 4. The sleeper couch was not very comfortable - perhaps a more comfortable version could replace it? Location was perfect for all our sightseeing needs and transport links were good. Local supermarket for basic supplies was adequate and conveniently located. Local eateries all easily located and not too far but fabulous! We had some great meals out, specifically at Gato Prado and Atiro te o Rio at Cacilhas. We had a great stay. Thank you very much. Kind regards, Sonya
