This was a truly outstanding house and our host was fantastic would recommend to anyone

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant house great location owner had researched eating options for our first night provided a map and made us feel so welcome. The house itself is amazing very high quality the best holiday rental we have had in 20 years of regular travel across the world. Very handy to bus and train station so we didn't rent a car. Lots of nice bars and places to eat close to local supermarkets and the main market. Close to all attractions providing an excellent base we were also able to stay until we caught our flight on the last day a massive help for us with 7 year old twins.

Tastefully modernised house within walking distance of Faro city amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment / house was very comfortable and clean. The restoration of the old property is very stylish and well thought through, resulting in a very comfortable and modern living environment, with a cool, white interior, and good facilities and living space. The apartment is on the rua da Boavista, which is very quiet, but just a five minute walk from the city centre, the bus and train station and the marina. The owner, Catarina, lives next door, and was very helpful and accommodating. Highly recommended.

Great location, wonderful apartment, super, super host!

  • 5 of 5

As with the previous guests, I cannot speak highly enough about this Faro apartment. Spacious, immaculate, in a great location in the old part of Faro, and a superb host! Catarina was welcoming, helpful, and just an overall super person.

As a previous reviewer noted, this apartment is much larger than it appears in the photographs... Also spotless, and very practical for a traveler to the wonderful city of Faro.

Catarina is both very knowledgeable of her town, and is happy to recommend various sights worth visiting.

I cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough. Well worth a stay!

Feel at home in Faro

  • 5 of 5

It is great to have a lovely apartment as your holiday home. But it is even better to have a whole house! This holiday house in the old town of Faro is really a place to enjoy and relax. It is spotlessly clean, spacious and discreetly furnished with taste and – what we liked most – wonderfully quiet. It offers two bedrooms, a living-room and a large attic room and also a small patio for outside dining or reading. The architecture of the house is remarkable, offering light-flooded rooms on several levels connected by wooden stairs. We loved this holiday home right from the start. The owner, Catarina, is very friendly and helpful. She is living next door, so it is easy to contact her in case you need anything. She gave us a warm welcome and kept our luggage while the house was being cleaned. Inside the house, you won´t miss a thing. There is a dishwasher and also a washing machine; in the living-room you find a lot of books and information about the Algarve (including a guide to convents written by the owner!). A car is not necessary as everything is so close and reachable on foot. We had a great time and hope to return soon – in the meantime we highly recommend it.

spacious and well set up apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this apartment last week and we were very impressed. It is well set up with everything one needs as a traveler. There was an abundance of space and it was spotlessly clean. The owner of the apartment was very helpful on things to do in and around Faro and went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable and happy. The apartment is close to the train and bus stations and it is in easy walking distance to shopping and exploring the sights. It was nice to end our 5 week travels in such a bright and comfortable apartment.
