Sunny and roomy apartment a stone away from the ce

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time exploring Faro and the surroundings, being based at Catarina's lovely apartment.

The place is full of light and the view to the lagoons from the main bedroom is really pretty.

The kitchen is sufficiently well equipped and the airco runs smoothly. The place is very clean and spacious, as is the entire building.

It was quiet in the nights.

There is parking space (i think it is payable) and a supermarket close by.

Lovely Stay

  • 4 of 5

Two of us travelled from Canada to Faro to escape the cold and enjoyed the month of November in Faro. All was just right at the apartment. . . close to everything, clean and well equipped, comfortable, and reasonably priced. We liked Faro as you could walk to everything. The people were friendly and Faro is very safe. Catarina gave good ideas for shopping, going places by train, and just anything we wished to know. As the other reviewer said, it would be nice to have a good balcony to sit out, but we managed by visiting surrounding towns.

Appartement coquet, idéalement placé

  • 4 of 5

Appartement très agréable, joliment décoré, très fonctionnel, propre et bien équipé, idéalement situé dans Faro (proche vieille ville, centre ville animé, parking gratuit et départ pour les plages et Ria Formosa). Au mois d'août, appartement chaud mais climatisé. Quartier sécurisant et plutôt résidentiel. Faro est le point de départ parfait pour visiter l'Algarve. Très bon accueil de Catarina, toujours disponible et à l'écoute. À louer sans hésiter et sans modération !

very nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Catarinas apartment 10 days long. It was very nice, the apartment is very comfortable, clean and very lovely decorated. We have a small child of two years old, it was great to have a babybed and a childchair in the flat. The apartment has a very good location, only 5 min footpath till the big and very beautiful garden, restaurants and cafes, 10 min to railwaystation and busstation. You have a great view over the lagoon from the window. We enjoyed our holydays in Portugal very much and would love to came back agiain. Many thanks to Catarina!

Appartement Agreable

  • 4 of 5

Appartement tel que vu sur les photos. Très agréable et lumineux, bien situé au centre de la ville piétonnes, calme. Catarina, a toujours répondu à nos besoins et nous a bien conseillé. Nous avons adoré Faro, une petite ville belle, propre et toujours sous le soleil. Un très beau séjour d'un mois. Nous recommandons cette location sans problème.

just fine

  • 4 of 5

I stayed for three weeks in the apartment of Catarina Martins (from August 29 to September 20)

It proved to be a good place:

- The location: right in the center of Faro and at the same time quiet*, no traffic, nice overlooking Ria Formosa (*except landing aircraft, but seem to belong to Faro).

- The interior: it was clean, well maintained. Bright décor, no screaming colors, natural materials. Basic, important things are good: the bed, the dining chairs, the sofa. Kitchen and bathroom are just fine. Good linens and towels.

- Rapid, good communication with the owner. How kind: I was picked up from the airport. When I left a taxi was arranged.

Two minuses: - It was really hot in the apartment, day and night (the outside temperature was still high in September). Luckily there was air conditioning. - It is a real city apartment, but does have balconies: an outdoor balcony and an indoor balcony with windows that open (here you can have a sunny breakfast and have a nice view). For those looking for a place outside to relax they are not optimal (only suitable for tiny chairs).

You can come my taxi, is the most simple and not expensive.

From 5 minutes walking you can find restaurants, shops, supermakets and the docklands. You can also catch the boat to go to several islands or go to the old town, within 5 minutes walking. You will love it!
