                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      This is a great location in the western Algarve, within easy drives of Lagos, Martinhal and the west coast beaches. A nice and quiet suburb but a comfortable 25 minute walk into Luz centre. Very nice apartment with decent sized rooms especially the living and dining area. Everything you need you'll find in the modern fitted kitchen. Bathroom has 2 good showers. There are two fantastic LARGE balconies one with a sea view, one with a countryside view. In daylight hours you can choose sun or shade between the 2 balconies which is a wonderful bonus! The only let down in an otherwise fabulous apartment is that there is only an A/C unit in the living room area so sleeping in the bedroom is impossible in high temperatures. We had to move to the living room to sleep a few times during our stay. The pool is a nice extra to have and often you can have it to yourself, but is in real need of refurbishment. There were broken tiles, uncomfortable, unwashed sun loungers and bare bulbs hanging out of the walls around the pool. There was also no electricity in the toilets at the pool so you either go in the dark or leave the door half open which was a bit disappointing. If these things were rectified this would be a 5 out of 5 review no question and we did still have a great holiday.

To say that Casa Romantica gives it to you again and again is no understatement! From the peaceful tranquility of the house and gardens, to the amazing pool, or the terrace and bar-b-q area to sit and eat with family or the welcoming shade from the willow tree to lay underneath and read your book. This place really has it all. The house is fully stocked, with everything you need to make sure your holiday is a stress free one. It really is truly magical. Thank you Casa Romantica for the best holiday I have had in years. We'll definitely be back next year!!!
