Good facilities -Excellent location!

4 of 5
Probably the best location in the old town (Zona Velha) with nice views of the Atlantic Ocean and the mountains. Easy parking in the nearby parking parking house. The apartment had all the facilities that we needed. The bar downstairs can be a bit noisy during the weekends, but the music is turned off at 11 pm. We have stayed thered there once before and would definitely do it once again. For safety reasons (a vertical 3 meters ladder) we would not recommend to use the mezzanine, so in our opinion the apartment is only suitable for two persons.
