Portimao villas are a golfing haven.

Very comfortable accommodation. Home from home.

4 of 5
We have recently returned from a 9 night stay in this apartment. It was comfortable, clean and well equipped. There is plenty of space. Jose responded quickly and was very helpful when the washing machine broke part way through the week. The accommodation was conveniently placed for the town of Alvor, which was a 25 minute walk away, and 6 Euro taxi fare back (uphill). The only problem which we couldn't resolve was a neighbouring dog barking in the early hours of the morning. We had a car so were able to travel around the lovely area. We were thrilled to see the storks with their young in their nests. We will definitely consider returning in the future

A truly special apartment

5 of 5
My wife and I usually stay in apartments when we travel. We have been in lots of good ones and some not so good. This property in the centre of Portimao is undoubtedly the best we have stayed in. It is spotlessly clean, has everything you could ask for; 2 great bedrooms (one with ensuite bathroom), beautifully decorated sitting room with 100s of satellite channels, and a bright airy kitchen equipped for the 21st century. Another of the highlights is the wrap-around balcony/terrace complete with sunbeds,clothes airer and table and chairs for alfresco eating (although our weather wasn't wonderful.) Claudia, the owner visited us within a few hours of our arrival and provided us with a wealth of information on what to visit locally and, more importantly, the best places to eat. Certainly was the best hostess and apartment we've had the pleasure to visit. Thank you again Claudia.
