Peaceful countryside in the mountains still untouched by developers.
Children love our apartment which is by the pool where they can enjoy the simple pleasures of childhood. Some families spend all of their time either around the pool or on the beach. Have simple lunches from the apartment and then take a walk to one of the many restaurants or bars in the evening. This then becomes a really relaxing holiday for the whole family without wondering where to go and what to do.
We have been visiting the Algarve nearly every year since the mid eighties. In the late 90's we visited twice a year. Then decided to buy. For the last 10 years we have spent 6 months of each year on and off in the Algarve and that is why our property is of a very high standard, because we live in it a lot of the time.
Areias de Porches is such a beautiful complex. It overlooks the sea. A 5 minute stroll down to the two beautiful beaches.

The other beach is quiet and rugged.

Had a wonderful time and is perfect for kids and couples , apartment was exceptionally clean and was in a great location near beach, shops and restaurants nearby. Margaret was always helpful with a wealth of knowledge on the local area with nothing being too much trouble.
The apartment was extremely well furnished with everything you could need and more.Will be back next summer.
Better than advertised! Beautifully clean ,modern and so well kitted out. We wanted for nothing. Didn't even have to wash up as a dishwasher is even there! Lovely pool with children's pool alongside.
Short walk to supermarket selling everything imaginable. Opposite direction leads to a beautiful quiet sandy beach with small café .
The apartment has two adjacent balconies which ensures sunshine throughout the day!
Would recommend this to anyone that wants a "get away from it all sunshine paradise."
excellent! What else is there to say? Everything you could possibly expect from a superior apartment in a spectacular setting ! A small peaceful beach a few hundred yards away, a superb swimming pool with children's pool on site and two beautiful balconies (sun traps)!
The apartment has everything you could possibly need for a truly great holiday.
Shame we had to come home!
The site is so well looked after, clean and tidy with adult and child pools.The apartment is absolutely brilliant. It has everything you would wish to have around you on holiday. The kitchen is so well "kitted" out. The bedroom is spacious and there is plenty wardrobe space with an extra fitted wardrobe in the hallway also housing a safe to keep your personal items secure. There is a terrace leading off from the bedroon and another one from the Lounge both of which get the sunshine early in the day until late evening. The area is lovely, plenty resturants close by and 2 supermarkets within walking distance. Algarve shopping cntr is a small drive away. The 2 beaches can be reached with a 5min walk and they are lovely. Portimao is about a 15-20 minute drive with a large retail centre. There is another lovely beach approx. 10 minutes away with shops resturants and bars. I had a brilliant holiday and will be going back. (Doreen from Scotland)
