These apartments are set right on the eastern ( Val do Lobo) side of Quarteira very close to the beach. They are a perfect choice if you like to self cater. There's a good supermarket close by and if you have a car you can drive to Pingo Doce or Lidl. There is an amazing fish market at the far end of the promenade and endless "takeaway" options in Quarteira.
The apartments are all privately owned and vary so it's better to book directly with the Cavalo Preto rather than with booking,com. Some face east and get morning sun whereas if you like to relax on your balcony with a glass of wine in the evening you may prefer a west facing apartment. The superior apartments face inwards onto the nicely landscaped gardens and ours on the second floor had a fantastic sea view.
We loved walking along the promenade which takes about 20 minutes to the western Villamoura end. Turn right at the fish market and up the Rua Vasco de Gama and carry on up to the pretty church in the old part of the town. This is where the locals eat in places like snack bar Tico! The takeaway chicken from Picasso was delicious and well worth the walk.
We are planning to return again soon!
