About Gorete Almeida

My name is Gorete, I was born in Portugal but have lived in Canada since was I a year old. I have a very deep and dear connection with my culture. I have been coming to this part of the Algarve for over 25 years, as a single person and now with my family. We adore it! We hope that you also enjoy it and make special memories as we have.

Why Gorete Almeida chose Portimão

Property is tastefully decorated and newly renovated (Feb 2016). Quiet location with all the creature comforts! My family and I come here every summer. We adore the Algarve beaches and love this area.

Tucked away in a quiet area but so close to everything. Centrally located in the Algarve so no drive is too far. Located on a very accessible beach which is ideal for families with children or those with limited mobility (no stairs to deal with). Classic Algarve beaches with beautiful rocks and caves to explore. You can walk the beach from one end of Praia do Vau all the way to the end of Praia da Rocha (gorgeous, breathtaking 60 minute walk there and back).

We hope you love it as much as we do and create beautiful memories!

Great location 500m to the beach & bars

  • 4 of 5

The flat is very clean and bright. The two bedrooms are a good size and the bathroom has a nice shower with great water pressure. The kitchen is small but fully functional and stocked with everything you need. There is a great view from the balcony however unfortunately this is not a balcony you can sit on. There is a roof top terrace but it would have been nice to sit on own balcony, enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sunset. This is the only downside to this flat but as the beach is such a short walk, you get over it quickly. There is a supermacado very close (5 min walk) and they have a pretty good variety of goods. The main supermarket can be reached either 20 min walk or 5 min by car. We have really enjoyed our time here and will miss waking up looking out the window and watching the waves breaking on the beach.

Beautiful apartment in the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Awesome beach apartment. My family loved it! Clean, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for beach days. We would stay there again anytime!

I loved waking up to a sun filled room with an ocean view; perfect for morning coffee. Thanks Gorete for all your guidance. Every recommendation you made was perfect! Your suggestions played a big role in making our 7 day holiday so memorable.

Bright place that is really close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the place and location. So family friendly! We have 2 young kids and it couldn't have been better. The apartment is so bright and clean, well equipped with kids beach toys, towels, coolers and a short walk to the perfect beach. Algarve beaches are amazing but can be hard to access, this location is perfect if you have little kids or a stroller. We felt very welcomed and very much at home.

October in Portimão

  • 5 of 5

Recommended by a very discerning friend I was confident this would be a great spot for us and we were not disappointed. Our hosts welcomed us, helped us get familiar and made themselves available when we needed them We loved this bright and comfortable apartment. Tastefully decorated and newly renovated with all the comforts of home. The kitchen is beautiful with everything necessary to make a full meal and the coffee machine!! It has everything you need to have fun at the beach; chairs, a cooler, towels and an umbrella. Close to shopping and the beach as long as you have a car. Restaurants and bars close at hand And a great part of the Algarve.

We will be back!!

Praia du Vau 2.0 here we come!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place! Highly recommend!!! We stayed with our 2 kids and found the apartment spacious and very comfortable. The location was perfect close to everything but still quiet and peaceful. The best part was the nearby beach Praia du Vau, stunning and only 5-minute walk. Gorete was a spectacular host, providing us with key places to visit. No time wasted searching out good spots. Excited to plan our next visit, Praia du Vau 2.0!!!

Great stay! Perfect for my partner and I. We walked in and thought - perfect! Fresh, Quiet, clean, tastefully decorated and fully equipped. Additionally Gorete was an amazing host! Really wants to share her love of the Alhambra. So knowledgeable and responsive. Honestly felt like having a virtual tour guide. I'll be back for sure!
