“Perfect choice!”
Reviewed 28 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

A lovely, spacious apartment which was like home from home. Well equipped and set in a lovely complex. Great, private swimming pool where you could relax and it was only a very short walk away. No sun loungers , but lots of grass and trees. The views from the balcony and roof terrace were lovely and it was always very peaceful - the balcony gets the sun all day.
The beach is within easy walking distance, as Well as a very good supermarket. Taxis are easy to access and can take you to other places for very reasonable prices.
A visit to Carvoeiro is highly recommended - the cliff top walk is stunning! A boat trip to Benagil, exploring all the caves is also a must!
Cathy was highly efficient, making sure that I had all the information I needed prior to my stay, as Well as very clear directions. She was always readily available to contact and replied speedily to any questions.
I would definitely stay here again.

“Second stay, again very pleasant!”
Reviewed 23 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Second stay, and we might well return again. Great location, the weather played its part, and a supermarket and great restaurants nearby. Half an hour's drive from Albufeira and Carvoeiro, beaches nearby.

Initial thoughts were that the apartment was a little removed from everything but once we got exploring this was not the case. Supermarket, beach and restaurants all within 10-15 minute walk and a little mini-market in the Quintinho Village complex just across the road. Armacao is a good 20-25 minute walk which our kids objected to but we fell in with a local taxi driver who took us in for 6 Euro and it is worth a couple of trips in to walk the promenade and visit the old town. Apartment was excellent and clean with all mod cons and breakfast/lunch on the balcony were essentials each day. The pool area was clean and well-kept and not too busy. Cathy was at the end of the mobile the whole time providing advice and useful info.!All in all I would highly recommend

“Great apartment with nice pool and 10 minute walk from beautiful beach!”
Reviewed 26 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We spent 9 nights in this apartment - which is very well-equipped, clean and homely. It also has a lovely balcony with a sea view! There is use of several pools, all of which are nicely landscaped, clean and include a toddler pool for little ones. The local beach is beautiful, and only a 10 minute walk away.... However, the walk home takes a little longer as its up hill!! There are some lovely local restaurants and a well-stocked supermarket. The local water park (aqua land) was a huge hit with our children too (1 and 4). Cathy, the owner, is also very helpful and responds to emails very quickly.

“Great apartment in a lovey part of the Algarve”
Reviewed 29 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Just returned from two weeks' stay in this great apartment. It was very spacious for two of us and is very well kitted out with everything you could possibly need for a holiday. The kitchen has everything you could require, including a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. The apartment is bright and airy during the day and cosy once the sun goes down. We very much enjoyed sitting on the balcony with a glass of Vihno Verde watching the lovely sunsets. Being February, a lot of the restaurants were closed for the holidays, but even so, there were still plenty of places to eat and drink within walking distance. The coastline between Armacao de Pera and Cavoiero is probably the nicest part of the Algarve and we highly recommend walking the coastal path (sturdy shoes recommended!) to see the lovely beaches, some of which are only accessible by foot. Armacao de Pera is a lovely little town with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from and is approximately 20 minutes' walk from the apartment. This is an ideal base from which to explore the Algarve at its best.
