Perfect Little Gem

4 of 5
We stayed at the Flor Do Vale for 11 nights from 28/06/2017 and found it to be a small but perfectly formed complex of apartments. The whole place is kept beautifully clean and very well maintained and is the perfect getaway. It appears more like an exclusive villa than just your normal apartment complex. We feel it is best suited for couples as it is away from the busier, larger resorts making it peaceful and relaxing. The owner Fernando is very welcoming and happy to help with anything you might need, just ask, nothing is too much trouble. He obviously takes pride in his property and tries to ensure all guess have a very pleasant stay. Fernando also shows he cares taking the time to administer first aid to my mosquito bites (thank you). As this is a self catering complex we feel the apartment might benefit from an oven for the occasions you may want to cook (personal choice). There is a microwave and a 1 ring hotplate, which was very efficient and we managed to cook a full breakfast on it. Otherwise the apartments are well equipped and all look out onto the lovely pool and grounds. During our stay there was a upgrade to the WiFi (if you need to stay in touch with the outside world) so the owner tries hard to improve facilities. We do feel that air conditioning may also be a benefit, the oscillating fan was quite noisy at night. After reading other reviews before travelling, we decided to hire a car to venture further which proved to be perfect for us. However, there are restaurants and supermarkets withing walking distance so if you're not worried about venturing further it has everything you need on hand. We did not try public transport so unsure how efficient or regular this is. The closest beach is at Gale which will take approx 30-40 mins to walk and well worth the visit as it is beautiful, with rock pools, coastal paths and nice sand. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and would not hesitate to recommend this lovely place. We would definitely return in the future. Thank you Fernando and team.
