About Phillip Handscomb
We are Lesley and Phill Handscomb. We live in a small village called Bishopstone a few miles west of Hereford with the Black Mountains of Wales just 12 miles away. We are both recently retired teachers. We bought the apartment with the intention of spending more and more time there as we get older. We still have a young, golf mad teenager in school so, for a few years, we are restricted to using the apartment occasionally in the school holidays. We try to add something to the apartment every time we visit to make it more and more comfortable for whoever visits. We are lucky to have a lovely lady who looks after the apartment in our absence and greets guests when they arrive. The more we visit the more we fall in love with Armacao de Pera and the Algarve in general.

Super apartment ideally situated
Pre holiday instructions and communication were excellent as was the transfer from airport to apartment and back. Not having a car did not restrict our enjoyment as the apartment is within easy walking distance of beaches,bars,restaurants,supermarkets,bus stop and taxi rank.
Apartment is well equipped and met all our needs. Sunny aspect on both balconies at different times of the day was a nice bonus.
We would definitely stay in this apartment again and would be happy to recommend.
We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment and look forward to hearing from you again.
A great apartment, centrally located (5 mins walk to restaurants and beach), yet nice and quiet at night, so good nights sleep. Very well equipped kitchen, with everything you need for a self catering holiday. However, there are an abundance of restaurants within a short walk. We loved the Raj (at the Holiday Inn) always great service and yummy food, Oasis pizza restaurant, just before the main strip is great for pizza or pasta and their Sangria is to die for! The bedding is great quality and the beds were very comfy too. The pool area is clean and tidy and having two balconies (front and back) was great to catch the sun. There was nothing we didn't like. Also, English TV was an added bonus. Thanks to Phillip for his great communication, the booking process was smooth too. We'll be back!
Thank you so much Jackie for this wonderful review. It's great to hear that you had such a good time. We do try to make sure that our guests are well looked after and their stay in the apartment is a real home from home experience. You are always welcome back.
Excellent apartment! Really clean and with everything you might need for a self catering family holiday. Complex not too overcrowded despite peak season- although there are not many sun loungers by the pool so you need to be quick in the mornings. Great location for beaches and restaurants and the supermarket pingo doce just 10 mins walk away. We made good use of the bbq on balcony with lovely fresh fish! Had a gorgeous steak on a stone at Hera restaurant- and cheap drinks at pedros bar down on the promenade. Plenty of ice cream parlours and shops to peruse, All in all a great 2 weeks holiday we will definitely be returning again in the near future! Would highly recommend this apartment.

This is our third stay in the apartment over the last two years. It really is a home from home... with everything you need and more. It is in a quiet location but only five minutes walk takes you to the centre and beach. Restaurants we would recommend .... Gatsbys, L'Oasis, Bollywood and O Casaro. Definitely be back next year.
Recomendo, alojamento 5 *****
