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.

Comfortable and central apartment in Faro

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. Not in the least because of the friendly hostess who was flexible and allowed us to arrive early in the morning.

The apartment is in a quiet street, yet very close to the old town center. The apartment is clean, spacious and equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We really liked that we could walk to the old town and the harbour. We recommend this apartment without hesitation.

Lovely and warm place to spend your vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I spent 5 nights with three friends of mine in this new, lovely and warm apartment. We were no couples, so there was more than enough space for us all (2 spacious bedrooms and a huge loft/attic on the 3d floor). In total, there are 4 single beds and one double one, not to mention the couch in the living room.

The kitchen is equipped with everything that someone could need, so we could enjoy our daily own made breakfast, but our cooked meals too! What is more, there is a small balcony next to the kitchen, where someone can enjoy his/her coffee and read his/her book while lying on a swing.

We arrived in midnight, however the owner was waiting for us. At first she gave us a short tour around the house, just to be sure that everything was in perfect condition. At the end she even gave us a bottle of Portuguese wine to relax after our long journey. The house was so clean and towels were waiting for us on each bed.

As for the apartment itself, it is located 5 minutes walk from the Faro center and Faro old town. Catarina is really helpful and always willing to give tips and help you, in case you meet any problems as tourists in Faro.

I would definitely recommend this place for your vacation and if I were to travel again to Faro I would choose this apartment with close eyes once again!

Highly recommended accommodation in Faro center

Five of us stayed in this charming house last September and we will definitely go back! Central location, beautiful interior, very helpful and friendly host who gave us good recommendations for restaurants and beaches... The house was spotless, we had literally zero complaints.
