This was our 1st family holiday in Portugal and i must say it was perfect place .. Just far enough away from the madness of the old town and only a 20 min walk to the beach .. We loved the pool and it was cleaned a few times in the week so felt safe letting the kids swim as much as they wanted ..the people in vale Parra were so nice and friendly. I'm 100% sure we will be back again .
This was our 4 time in this apartment , we go there for the sun..even when its raining
we love it there and have made friends with some of the local ... the pub close to the apartment is a great place to relaxing in the evening after a lovely meals with the great restaurent close to the apartment...you do not need a car or taxi as everything you need is close by..beaches/golf/.pubs/restaurents and the apartment is super clean and very comfortable with everything you need with 100%cotton sheet and towels, the pool and play ground is great and a caretaker around all the time to answer any concerns you have.
we are going again to this apartment for Easter week.
