A beautiful apartment, wonderfully and carefully thought through. Every thing you could possibly need is supplied and more. We had a wonderful time in Quarteira and Vilamoura. No shortage of excellent restaurants, we particularly enjoyed Lenarios on the sea front, however we honestly did not have a bad meal and we ate out every night (and most lunchtimes). We even squeezed in a trip to Lisbon which was lovely but very tiring...if you decide to go I recommend an old town tour in the local tuktuks. Communication was excellent throughout the booking and we had plenty of contacts on arrival should we have needed anything, but we didn’t :). I have no reason not to recommend this apartment, in fact if you don’t book, more fool you! Cheers Stephen !
We had the good fortune to stay at this apartment recently with 2 of our teenagers. From the outset the Owners- Mark and Hayley were helpful & friendly, providing a welcome pack with plenty of information on the accommodation & area plus advice on taxi firms from the airport. This boded well for the stay and we were not disappointed. On arrival we were greeted by the agent Eduarda, who was highly efficient and organised. The apartment was superb, very high specification in all areas, a large balcony with a view of the sea & comfortable seating/dining area both on the balcony & in the living area. Very well organised kitchen,which had everything we required & all appliances 1st class- Siemens. The attention to detail was outstanding, little things such as a shopping trolley which proved invaluable for trips to local supermarket & washing machine tablets,dishwasher tablets supplied, some coffee pods for machine & a cafetiere. This was mirrored throughout the apartment, with bedrooms & bathrooms all beautifully furnished. A large walk in shower in main bathroom, both bathrooms modern & clean. Mark & Hayley kindly provided plenty of towels, as well as beach towels, this was particular helpful in view of the weight restrictions on flight luggage! We had access to the swimming pool, which was one flight above us & this was clean with plenty of loungers, ideal for cooling off after busy day sightseeing. The area itself is to be recommended, with plenty of choice of restaurants & cafes- with fish being a popular option this being a fishing town! The ferries to the idyllic beaches of Armona, Farol & Culatra just a short distance away. We particularly enjoyed our day at Tavira, a medieval town, short distance away via train- with castle, church of Santa Maria & river running through the town itself. Pleasant evenings were spent walking through the picturesque streets of Olhao, sitting at the harbour cafes & listening to music. Olhao is a real gem in the Algarve & we enjoyed our experience of Portugese culture, the people were so friendly & relaxed. In summary, we will definitely return to this area & cant recommend the apartment highly enough. We hope to stay here again in the very near future, we would like to pass on our grateful thanks to Mark & Hayley (and Eduarda) for ensuring our holiday was enjoyable & providing such a beautiful place to stay. Thank you.
