We had everything we needed for our stay and enjoyed drinks and a couple of meals on the large balcony. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment and Vilamoura to friends and family

It was a complete home from home and had everything you could possibly need. It wasn't overlooked at all and the nearest property was a good distance away. It was very peaceful yet close enough to the busier areas of Albufeira and Vilamoura. Falesia Beach is only a 10 minute drive away and is beautiful, totally unspoilt. The accommodation and pool couldn't have been more perfect for us and our 18 year old twins. We enjoyed the shade on the patio by the pool and had a fair few games of drunken boules on the grass :) All in all everything was perfect and we hope to return in the future. Thank you.
