We couldn't have asked for anything more from a holiday rental. The owners (Dave and Ali) were most helpful throughout the booking and beyond. When we arrived at the apartment there was some lovely green wine and some food essentials at no extra cost. The apartment is close to amenities, with a very short stroll into Armacao de Pera. Would definitely stay there again and have recommended to friends and family.
