After booking he sent me through all the details about the apartment and maps as we were hiring a car from the Airport of how to find it ,also the arrival and check in details .The Apartment is situated apx 35 miles from faro Airport and about 6 miles away from Albufeira on a quiet but large luxury complex. We were met on arrival with a friendly welcome by Antonio he showed us around the Apartment and complex. he also kept in contact during our stay to make sure everything was ok , and we were happy with the Apartment via a few text messages he also sent me a list of excellent places to dine withing the area. The Apartment is Amazing furnished to a very high standard , extremely large and spotlessly clean and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need , TV, air-conditioning, Washing machine, dishwasher, Parking in a private space in the underground garage, with a huge balcony with a gorgeous view of the pool and gardens , it was so nice on waking each morning to sit with a coffee enjoy the sun and birds singing total bliss. we stayed for 10 nights and the house keeping even changed the sheets and towels mid stay.The complex is also located along side miles of sandy beach which is natural with a amazing forna and wildlife The apartment block is Set around 7 swimming pools one of which is shallow enough for under 5,s, all set in immaculately detailed landscaped gardens . The gardeners and maintenance team are an absolute credit to the resort. and a great deal of thought has gone into the surrounding environment and sustainability of the area. Although we did not use it the main reception block called L14 it houses a bar , restaurant , gym and spa which are available at to use at extra cost The resort is set in a very quiet area away from the any main town, if you want to be completely independent there are two well stocked supermarkets with in walking distance. There are also a handful fantasic restaurants nearby but for the elderly or infirm you would need to get a taxi to these. the main town of Albufeira is about 20 mins drive away .Although not totally essential but to really make the most of the area and explore the Algarve I would recommend hiring a car

We chose this villa largely because we were visiting in April and it had a heated pool. As a result, our kids spent hours playing happily in the pool! The four double bedrooms were each en-suite and the kitchen was very well equipped. The welcome pack of groceries (and beer!) was very welcome when we arrived later than expected due to a delayed flight.
