Even when I cooked christmas dinner you had all the essentials to do this The apartment was so near everything that you did not need a car and with bus stop outside so handy to go anywhere. Your kindness with the carrot cake, orange juice and gingerbread men went down very well. Would not hesitate to recommend your apartments to anyone Thanks again Berni & Tom

The apartment was very lovely, comfortable and clean. The apartment is fully equipped , beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen was also very good and had all the equipments you need. Really close to Alvor, a fisherman village where the food is extremely good (amazing seafood) and the beach is incredible. All you need to have a wonderfull time. I really recommend this apartment.
