                                                          5 of 5
                                                          Our party of myself, husband ,sister and sister in law all agreed that Eden Apartment was a superb base for our needs. It was exactly as describe, very contemprorary,clean and tidy. It had lots of space for us and lots of storage space. It was a 20 to 25 min walk to Alvor but downhill all way and taxis cosy approx. 4-5 euros for return journey which was ok between 4 of us. I would recommend the patisserie at roundabout near apartment as it served great coffees and had daily supply of croissants, rolls, bread and the most delicious selection of cakes. On top of this prices were very cheap. Also small mini market nearby providing many of the basics so saving trips to the larger supermarkets! Jose the manager was extremely helpful when we had problems with our luggage on arrival and contacted the airline and organised taxis to allow us to deliver the case, we had picked up by mistake, to the correct owner and get us to airport to collect our case. On last day we put some clothes in washing machine and were then unable to get door open and had to leave them. He posted them on to us on return from holiday! They arrived safely today. Many thanks Jose! We would recommend this apartment as a great bargain.

It has everything you will need the apartment is situated in a quiet area of the complex and gets the sun all day, very important some dont. katrina is excellent to deal with and really cant do enough to help.

                                                          Absolute beautiful apartment. Tastefully decorated, quiet, clean and comfortable! A home away from home with everything you need. The nearby Vau beach is stunning and so easy to access with our children. All the necessities are near and everything is a short drive away (e.g. big grocery stores, other spectacular beaches, shopping etc). The owner and property manager were so helpful and responsive. The owner gave us great tips on where to go to take full advantage of our our stay in the Algarve! Local tour guides, with lots of experience. Total bonus! Thank you so much. Highly recommend and plan to stay here again.
