About Elsa & Emiel


We are Elsa and Emiel. Elsa is from Portugal and Emiel is from the Netherlands. We traded the Netherlands for Portugal and we live in Portimão with our 2 children.

Elsa & Emiel purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Elsa & Emiel chose Praia da Rocha

This apartment is ideal to have a splendid Holiday or the spend the winter. If you want to flee the cold, the Algarve is great.

Everything for a sun/beach holiday is present, but not the disadvantages.

The apartment is situated in an urban area, a non tourist area it stays cool, after the hot beach you can cool down.

The supermarket is at walking distance and the centre of Portimão also.

The Algarve offers more than sun, sea and beach. A wide variety of drinking and dining and not to expensive, always something to do at night and there is no mass tourism.

In our opinion Portugal is one of the best holiday destinations in Europe.

What makes this apartment unique

The appartment is situated on the shadow side of the building, despite this it is very light but direct sunlight does not enter and stays cool in the summer.

It's calm surroundings but near everything makes it a ideal base for your holidays.

What is near:

- Restaurants

- Market

- Golf courses

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Very enjoyable stay, the apartment was spotlessly clean, the bed was large and very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, Emiel had left bottled water for us together with a bottle of wine. There is a very large balcony with views over the town and the mountains of Monchique. The area is quiet and well placed for Continente a large well stocked supermarket.Travelling around is very easy by both train and public transportation, making beaches very easy to get to. While there we managed a trip to Lisbon by train and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Wonderful stay at a beautiful apartment! Just like home.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Elsa and Emiel's 11th floor apartment from September thru December 2016. Emiel picked us up from the bus station when we arrived, and we were so happy to see how beautiful and clean the apartment was(with a bottle of wine waiting for us). We had all the necessities we needed for our long term stay, and the view from the apartment was stunning of the Serra de Monchique (huge balcony). We could easily walk to the Continente Mall, Lidl, and Aldi grocers, along with many other places. We were also close enough to enjoy walking to the Marina and waterfront, old Town Portimao and also enjoyed the gorgeous Praias de Roche Beach. If we needed any questions answered about the area or needed anything for the apartment, they were always there for us. They are lovely family to get to know, and we really enjoyed our stay in the Algarve.

Mooie rustige woning in de buurt van supermarkten en andere faciliteiten

  • 5 of 5

We verbleven 5 weken in de woning van Elsa en Emiel. Alles is aanwezig, goede bedden, rustig in de flat, geen herrie en muziek van buren. Strand, rivier Arade, Shoppingcenter, zijn lopend te bereiken. Taxi,s, zoals bekend, zijn goedkoop in Portugal. Waren erg tevreden, komen volgend jaar weer terug.

Vacaciones perfectas

  • 5 of 5

Ha sido la primera vez que visitamos el Algarve, zona maravillosa con playas espectaculares.

El apartamento es perfecto, limpio, cómodo y con todo lo necesario para una estancia agradable.

Emiel es encantador y ha sido muy hospitalario. Nos recomendó playas para visitar y restaurantes para cenar que fueron todo un acierto.

Repetiremos la experiencia.

Gracias !!

Simplesmente fantástico

  • 5 of 5

Apartamento impecável, bem equipado, limpo e muito confortável, tudo tal como nas fotos. Inserido num edifício moderno, com piscina exterior, é ideal para umas férias bem passadas. Vista lindíssima sobre a cidade de Portimão, com a Serra de Monchique ao fundo. Praias de sonho, excelente oferta de restaurantes e outros serviços. Anfitriões 5 estrelas, a Sra. Elsa e o Sr. Emiel são pessoas muito simpáticas e acessíveis, sempre disponíveis e prontas a resolver qualquer problema (fizeram inclusive questão de reforçar o equipamento da cozinha aquando da nossa chegada afim de melhorar a nossa estadia). Recomendo vivamente a escolha deste apartamento, iremos voltar certamente.

Een fijne vakantie

  • 5 of 5

We verbleven in een royale flat, goede bedden, ruime badkamer en een keuken die van alle gemakken was voorzien. Op het ruime balkon hebben we zeker de eerste week 's morgens kunnen ontbijten. De flat is goed onderhouden en schoon, dat geldt ook over de gemeenschappelijke ruimten. We hadden de beschikking over een huur auto en dat is zeker aan te bevelen om de prachtige standen in Portimao en omgeving te bezoeken. Een grote supermarkt is vlak bij en het oude centrum van Potimao is te voet gemakkelijk te bereiken. Emiel heeft ons prima geholpen en doet zijn zaken uitstekend. We kijken terug op een fijne vakantie en hebben zeker plannen om nog eens naar Portimao terug te gaan.
