Adequate but bit basic.

  • 2 of 5

Would have been nice to get a welcome pack. My sister had one in their apartment on same site. We arrived past midnight and first cup of tea would have been after a visit to supermarket next day! So not impressed.

Apartment was a bit basic, but adequate. Enjoyed the holiday overall though.

Great apartment! Wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has all the amenities you might possibly need. A modern kitchen, a nice bedroom with a comfortable bed, a living room as well as two terraces. I can only recommend this apartment to anybody. Alporchinho is a great place to stay with beautiful beaches, a variety of restaurants and a supermarket. A quiet little town.

Troppo personale

  • 2 of 5

La zona di Porches è sicuramente funzionale per una lunga vacanza, ma troppo residenziale e omologata per farti vivere la vacanza come una esperienza.

La casa è arredata in modo decoroso ma con gusto e complementi troppo personali per poter essere considerata accogliente da altri.

Owner's Response: La regione di Porches è sicuramente per una vacanza tranquilla rilassante. Alcune persone potrebbero preferire zone più affollate con un sacco di pub e ristoranti venire Albufeira. In termini di arredo di un appartamento è difficile da accontentare tutti assaggiare The Porches region is definitely for relaxing quiet holidays . Some people might prefer busier areas with lots of pubs and restaurants like Albufeira . In terms of furnishing an apartment is difficult to please everyone taste .

Speaking of calm and relaxed, Porches fits the same bill. Its a beautiful old village full of history and stunning local beaches, restaurants and bars. Known for pottery and ceramics you can visit the factories of artist’s shops where you can purchase some of the attractive bright blue, green and turquoise pottery. A short stroll away the village and its two blue flag beaches (the best in Algarve) often visited by the rich and famous. One offering a top class restaurant and water sports and one set inside a protected cove offering beauty and calm. There are a number of attractions close by such as Aqualand , slide and splash, Zoo Marine and PADI surfing. You can also hire boats for the morning or the day and jeeps and there is also a jeep safari and of course a large shopping mall for those who feel the urge
