A Great Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My husband and i just spent a month in this very central location. The apartment was very spacious with a huge amount of storage space.

Fresh perfectly pressed sheets and towels were delivered to our door weekly!

Virgil and Maria were exceptionally gracious hosts who were more than willing to help in any way possible.

From this location, you can get to the beach and Old Town in less than 10 minutes- close to grocery stores and bus stops.

A very enjoyable stay.

Amazing spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just returned from 14 nights at this lovely apartment. It was so spacious and had so much storage space and every piece of self catering equipment you could want. It was spotlessly clean and there was a change of all bed linen and towels after 1 week if required. There is access to a rooftop terrace with sun loungers and table and chairs which we often used for a coffee in the morning or a lazy early evening drink.

The apartment is located within 10 minutes of the lovely beach and the lively old town square with its many bars and restaurants. The 'strip' is a bout a 40 minute leisurely stroll but we preferred the atmosphere of the old town. Aldi and Lidl are within a 5 minute walk so it is easy to stock up on supplies. Virgil and his wife Maria live downstairs and are easily accessible if any advice is needed and Virgil is lovely to chat to and would do anything to make the stay comfortable.

All in all we had a brilliant holiday in this excellent apartment and we would wholeheartedly recommend it.

Our Favourite Holiday Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic and the owners were exceptional. The room was beautiful and immaculate. We were then greeted with fresh lemons, freshly squeezed orange juice, pomegranates and persimmons from their trees. Their location, hospitality and rooms are all perfect.

Our stay at Rue de Encosta

  • 5 of 5

The description of the apartment was spot on and the owners were very pleasant and helpful all through our stay without being intrusive. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. We would stay here again when in this part of Portugal as it is close to all amenities and good restaurants without question.

Superb place to relax and feel at home

  • 5 of 5

Ideally located to explore Albuferia and the Algarve area. 8 minutes walk to the beach & town square with lots of great restaurants to choose from.

As to amenities, there's an Aldi and Lidi supermarket within easy walking distance.

Virgil and Mary are the ideal hosts - not to mention the warm breakfast basket that greets you on your first morning!!

Wake up each morning to the sound of gentle bird song outside your bedroom window....

Para quem, como eu, esperava uma moradia rés-do-chão, com espaço exterior para refeições... este apartamento no primeiro andar sem uma única varanda é uma desilusão completa! As áreas são boas, estava limpo, mas é completamente enclausurado no primeiro andar! Por mais que uma vez, demasiado ruído no exterior do r/c com jantares até horas tardias... quando se alugam casas a terceiros, deve haver um certo cuidado para não perturbar o sossego de ninguém!
