I stayed here with some friends last year and I was not expecting such a great and memorable experience!
The apartment was very clean and refreshingly cool when temperatures rose to well above 25 degrees. The rooms are spacious and simple and which is all that is needed when there is so much to do so locally. With the beach within walking distance and shops and restaurants en route, this apartment is in the perfect location, out the way of traffic and neatly perched in a quiet neighbourhood looking over stunning views of Pine Cliffs.
The lively town of Vilamoura is a 15 minute drive or 30 minute bike ride which can be rented (quite flexibly) at a local shop. Its high-end hotels and luxury boats make for a great outing with plenty of opportunity to buy souvenirs in the marina shops.
Another must visit place is the town of Lagos. Although a 45 minute drive away (about the same journey from Faro airport to this apartment), it offers gorgeous scenery of beaches and historic 16th century walls used to protect the city. It has a market and lots of restaurants to grab a bite of local cuisine or just the standard burger and chips.
Although these two popular towns are great to visit, the simple and peaceful location of this apartment is perfect if your looking for convenience, beauteous landscapes and seclusion from noisy tourists.
I had a fantastic time here and I will most definitely be looking to return! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!
