Beautiful apartment contained everything we needed. Lovely area just 40 minutes drive from Faro airport and so central for visiting some wonderful places and beaches along the Algarve coast. There are wonderful cliff top walks along the coastline, the three beaches in the area are superb and just minutes walk away . We hired a car and were able to visit Carvoeiro with its board walk along the cliff tops, Benagil, Silves, Feragudo, Albufeira and Portimao (Praia da Rocha beach) all within 30 minutes drive. At Feragudo we went Kayaking along the coast and were led by a guide who explained how the caves were formed and was a great way to spend a morning, would thoroughly recommend it. We also went on a cycling tour of the Pendarne valley which was beautiful but only if you are a keen and regular cyclist as the hills make this quite a hard ride. Although there is a supermarket nearby we preferred to go to Shopping Algarve in Gaia (20 minutes drive) where there is so much more choice in a very large Continente supermarket and the prices are also cheaper. All in all had a great time helped by great weather during our stay 2/10 - 11/10.
The villa is located just outside the village. It is accessed via a private gate making it very safe for children. The grounds are large and very private. The villa had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyingable. We particularly enjoyed the outside music when sitting round the pool. The pool, which is gated, was large and very welcome especially as it was very hot whilst we were there. We went to Oktoberfest at the local Biergarten, which was under 10 minute walk away which was good fun with great food. There were lots of wonderful restaurants a short drive away in the nearby local villages with all tastes catered for. We particularly enjoyed Restaurant O Leao and there was a really cute wine bar caleed Rolha in Porches. We went to several beaches, all of which were stunning! The scenery is so beautiful. There are several good supermarkets a short drive away all with a very good selection of products. We were there for 3 weeks and we couldn’t think of anything that would have made our trip more enjoyable. We can’t wait to return
