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 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!

Thank u so much for staying there and enjoying it, what a beautiful review. Kind regards, Susana

Clean, great location, kind owner!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is situated on the cliffs above a beautiful beach, two minute walk to the sand. Good views from the rooftop patio but not from inside. That's OK, who stays inside on their vacation? We would recommend this place to friends to visit!

Right on the Rota Vicentina trail so you can do a short (or long hike) in either directions for even more stunning views. Surrounded by good restaurants! Calm and quiet neighborhood- we were pleased!

Very special small village with bueitful sunsets!!!

  • 5 of 5

The most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen! This place is very scenic with magical views. We could not believe that places like this exist. So relaxing it seams like time stopped while I we were there The fish and the sea food are always fresh daily and the walks on the cliffs are fantastic with numerous remote beaches.

The apt is great even has A/C or HEAT (I've visited this area before and it's A/C is very rare in this part of Portugal), and the Sun Roof overlooking the beach is just amazing, some days we just stayed there all day.

Susana was super helpful with all the tips she gave us.

I love this place…want to go back...
