The house is lovely - very well-equipped, perfectly located near the marina, the old town and shops and restaurants and only a five minute walk from the bus station. Veronica and Bruno are very welcoming and cannot do enough for you. We highly recommend this property and are hoping to return again.

Ana is a brilliant host, she was very helpful during our stay. Ana organised airport transfers for us for a very small fee. There are lots of restaurants and bars close to the apartment, there is also well stocked supermarkets within 2 minutes walk. The view of the marina from the bedroom balcony is breathtaking but we spent most of our time on the large terrace off the living room. Thank you Ana for all your help and advice, we would highly recommend your apartment to anyone who wishes to visit Faro.

Helped me out with all my needs and answered any questions I had. The villa was beautiful, Nicely secluded and well stocked with everything you would need. So heres my only tip If you are using taxis for your holiday use the villa owners taxi service for airport transfers and to get you to the villa the first time after that Uber works perfectly. There are 2 supermarkets one is a 15 min walk the second a 25 minute walk and 3 restaurants close buy. I cant recommend this villa enough was a amazing week. Cant wait to go back!!
