Absolutely amazing place with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The location and apartment was ideal. We hired a car from faro airport and it took us approx 2 hours to get to the resort. The roads were very good and the scenery was exceptional. On arrival we contacted Mika who looks after the apartment with her mum and dad on behalf of Susana. It only took her 10 mins to arrive and we duly had a Sagres in the cafe below. The apartment was perfect with everything you need. The roof top terrace was so nice. Lying there wiv a few beers was heaven. The restaurants and bars that Susana recommended were 1st class. Defo a little gem and will be back again soon.

Thanks again Susana

Kind Regards

Andy & Rena

A nice cosy apartment with a fantastic roof terrace in a charming seaside village

  • 4 of 5

The reason for renting this apartment is definitely the huge roof terrace with a lovely view of the beach and ocean. It’s a great place to lie in the sun, have breakfast or an evening glass of wine! The apartment itself is on the level below with views onto the street rather than the sea. It is compact but with a well equipped kitchen and in a great location for visiting the many local restaurants and bars. The secure garage parking below is also a real plus. The village itself is cute with great local walks and plenty of places to visit up and down the coast by car. Definitely recommend for a couple.

Great apt great location

  • 5 of 5

The apt is super well decorated and with everything you may need.

The roof top overlooking the beach is nice to take sun or just read a book.

The area is great with great restaurants, you don't need a car for anything you just walk...great time, we recommended.

increadiable accomidations a fantastic host!!!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the condo is perfect, close to the beach, restaurants, hiking paths and the village which is wonderful. The apartment is very clean and the host, Susana was very helpful in answering pointing out activities and answering my questions. I would return and recommend friends to visit Zambujeira so they can see for them selves above listed as well as the view of the beach and sun going down from the day bed on the roof top of this apartment.

A jewel....

  • 5 of 5

We are there just now in February (it was sunny and very confortable weather to walk)...and was so beautiful we can just imagine in Spring or Summer..perfect place to relax and get away from all..the beaches are beautiful the walks along the clifs are breathtaking, the sea food, the fish...

The apt is fantastic, was everything you may need, the A/C warm up the all apt nicely, the WiFI is super fast and the TV have a lot of international chanels, it was not the right time of the year to enjoy the roof top (sunbathing), but we still sit there and enjoy the beautiful view to the ocean.We recomend this place and we would love to come back other time of the year....

Thank you Susana for all your tips were very useful.

Fabulous coastal views from roof terrace.

  • 5 of 5

The glorious coastal scenery of Alentejo is accessible directly from this apartment. We did walks in both directions along the coast path, the most spectacular being the one to Carvalhal beach with its beach bar being an unexpected surprise. Susana' helpful notes and advice were very useful and we tried most of her restaurant recommendations. The garage parking meant we could keep our car off the road and out of the heat. The air conditioning meant we could keep cool too!
