The apartment and it's many facilities were very good. Excellent hosts George and Olive made us very welcome. Convenient situation for the eastern Algarve and Faro. Loved eating out at the nearby restaurant O Calmo.

Management response:

Thank you for your great comments, we both hope that you will visit us again when you come to the East Algarve.

The apartments are in the country in a peaceful setting but close to Olhao which is a fishing port and has everything you will need and more.

The Apricot studio apartment was lovely and well equipped for our needs. It is rural but we were after a relaxing holiday so suited us just fine. The hosts, George and Olive, were most welcoming and the welcome pack was lovely touch. Would recommend car hire if you wished to venture further afield but there is a local taxi service...

Management response:

Thank you for your kind comments, we also do recommend Car Hire to get the best out of your holiday to the Algarve.
