Beautiful and well equipped apartment. The welcome pack provided was much appreciated as it got our holiday underway without having to worry about getting food/drink supplies in. The apartment is in a quiet and secure spot in well manicured grounds and lovely pool (although unheated). The massive terrace is the main feature as it has beautiful sea views and is sunny for most of the day! Lovely coves/beaches only a few minutes walk away and restaurants are also in the vicinity. The Hapimag store down the road in the neighbouring complex will provide most of the suppliies you need although not the cheapest place to shop. The wildlife lovers amongst you will want to visit the Lagoa Dos Salgados reserve around 2 miles west by Gale beach as it's great for birds, particularly during migration as many birds stop for restbite before making their journey southbound. If you opt for this apartment you won't be disappointed!

We're a Belgian forthy-ish couple who stayed 4 weeks at this place in summer and had a great time. We drove our own car and explored every bit of the Algarve, the apartment is perfect for that as it is so centrally located. Renting a car is also easy and we're sure Maureen would even help with that, she is the most welcoming host you can wish for. We've rented apts several times already but this was the first time we got a welcoming package and weekly linnen change. The ap is clean, well maintained and bedding is good (I have a terrible back and had no issue at all, which is exceptional).
We were always glad to return after our excursions, no worry about the car as there is safe off street parking, a dip in the pool and relax on the immense terrace. Lying in the hammack was heaven, dozing off or reading, there are ample English books in the ap so a good choice for everyone.
There is a chilly evening breeze along the coast so you might want to take a sweater for the evenings.
We loved the apartment and its seaview !
