Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
All the essentials, peaceful and so comfortable. Difficult to find - GPS doesn't help.
Spacious, comfortable accommodation
The apartment - which feels more like a house as it's on two floors with a garden - was very spacious and comfortable.
We felt it was in need of a bit of updating in the bathrooms and kitchen as these were a bit tatty around the edges. It would also have been helpful to have a couple of beach towels provided, or a couple of extra bath towels.
The extra added touch of leaving us some beers, water and fruit was a nice touch, thank you.
Great Place with Beautiful Garden
The property is bright, spacious and clean. It has all the amenities you would require on holiday.
The large bedroom boasts a lovely balcony where you can sit and enjoy the sea view.
There is a large TV in the living room and two large comfy sofas.
The added benefit of this property is the garden which is well maintained and features a barbecue for those who fancy al fresco dining.
The apartment it self is close to Alvor fishing village which has great restaurants and there are plentiful beaches to explore. Highly recommend this accommodation and area.
Lovely apartment (that seems more like a house!)
Wonderful holidays in a lovely apartment, simply decorated but with a very good taste.
A quiet place to spend holidays, far from noise and confusion and with a pleasant garden with a bbq!
Looking forward to coming back again!
We have had an amazing holiday, we had never been to Portugal and will definitely be coming back.
The property was perfectly placed we were 5 minutes away from a fabulous beach and restaurants in alvor by car. There was a small beach which you could walk to but we preferred the big beach, you are only 5 minutes away from praia de Rocha by car also brilliant. Magia was really lovely and helpful she let us in a bit earlier too as we had an early flight, she was very friendly. The apartment is large clean modern and really spacious great garden, cool too there are fans too. The facilities in the kitchen are 1st class. We have had a fab time thanks Magia and Derek xxxxx
Amazing Apartment, Highly Recommended
Walking through the door, first impressions are that the property is better described as a house than an apartment. Situated in a lovely quiet community only 5-10 mins walk to the nearest beach. When the tide is right you csn walk from Praia du Vau all the way to Praia de Rocha, and back again...Beautiful beaches and scenery!
The apartment itself was very clean, with spacious living & dining area, fully equipped kitchen with all the appliances. The bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs also impressed. all with modern and tasteful decor. The main bedroom balcony was perfect for breakfast al-fresco while enjoying the ocean view.
The private garden is well kept and ensured we had our own space to relax in the sun, on the loungers provided, and the built in garden BBQ was a great feature for some beautiful sunset dining.
Free Wi-Fi and smart Samsung TV meant we could log into our Netflix account which I'm sure would be an added bonus for any families with young kids. There's also satellite TV with a selection of English speaking channels. The property somehow manages to keep comfortably cool without the help of air con. The temperature reached up to 32°C on our visit and the apartment was always a cool retreat from the sun.
The neighbouring town of Alvor is a must visit, fantastic restaurants and bars along the narrow cobblestone streets.
I would recommend hiring a car, as day trips to nearby Sagres & Lagos are well worth it. The underground parking ensures the car isn't baking in the days heat!
Can't recommend enough, this was our 3rd occasion staying here and we are eagerly looking forward to our 4th.
Only a short walk from the apartment is beautiful Vau beach. This beach is a favourite with locals and visitors alike. It is the perfect spot for a sunrise or sunset walk. The golden sand stretches out for miles with interesting little caves and rockpools along the way.
The beach is patrolled by lifeguards during the summer months. There are a couple of cosy coffee shops right on the beach which are great for a beachside drink or snack. During the summer season, a great way to pass the day is to hire one of the pedal boats and cruise around the bay – a favourite with the kids.
The picturesque village of Alvor is 3km from the apartment. Alvor is a small fishing village 5 kms west of Portimão and only 40 minutes from Faro airport. The traditional cottages, cobbled streets & picturesque harbour area give Alvor its unique charm & quaintness. Today Alvor is renowned for its superb beaches; the best sandy beaches in the Algarve. There is a wide variety of restaurants in the area to cater for all tastes and budgets.
The area is a golfer’s paradise with the Championship course at Penina, Alto & Gramacho all within a 5-10 minute drive & over 25 top class courses within one hours drive. You could try the jeep safari into the Monchique mountain range or the international marinas at Lagos & Portimao. There are a number of historic places worth a visit including Lagos, Silves & Loule. Also there are water parks & the marine zoo nearby – a great family day out.
For those seeking late night action, Alvor has some great bars and live music. Praia de Rocha is a 5 minute taxi drive & has casinos and lots of late night bars & discos.
If you are looking for a traditional Portuguese location for a peaceful holiday, with fantastic beaches, then this is the place to come.
