Great value base for exploring the Algarve

5 of 5
We had a lovely warm welcome from Isabel, the apartment is comfortable and well-equipped. Very comfy bed, everything spotlessly clean, bright and cheerful. The wifi was good. The garden and pool area were beautiful but we were too busy exploring the area to make use of it! Quiet location, but the beach, restaurants, supermarkets and marina are all a short drive away. From here we were able to explore the whole of the Western Algarve. We were also given a card which gave us discounts in various places and a complimentary "medronho" (local spirit) at the Rampa restaurant in Monchique - not to be missed!

Amazing apartment

5 of 5
Stunning apartment! So spacious and literally right in front of the beach! Me and my friends stayed for a few nights but wish it had been a few weeks as the weather in October was so good! The shops, bars and restaurants are all close by and the local people were very friendly. Thank you so much Omar for your hospitality!
