A lovely, clean and well equiped apartment which is very well situated within easy walking distance of some wonderful restaurants and bars. The medieval walled town of Orbidos is very interesting and there is appropriate entertainment every day. The locals are all very friendly and polite.
A short drive in any direction brings you to all types of places. We visited an enormous monostry, costal areas, a lagoon (for safe swimming) and a fishing port where we ate locally caught sardines which were so fresh and tasty. Indeed we tried a number of beautiful fresh fish meals and although there is a bbq on the terrace of the appartment we decided the food was all so reasonably priced that we only ate in on one evening, though we did cook our breakfast each morning and ate it on the terrace, which is a real suntrap.
We loved the whole experience, so different to the algarve, and we will be going back to the same apartment again in the future. more
