The apartment is especially suitable for families and young children. A cot, potty and booster chair are available if required. There's plenty of space available and no steps for young children to climb. Our 2 year old loves running around the apartment and there is a children's playground just round the corner.

There are 2 highly rated restaurants (The Por Do Sol and Big Reds Steakhouse) restaurants and the newly opened El Prego which serves as bakery, café and restaurant offering great cakes, coffee and authentic Portuguese food – all these are just 2 mins away from the apartment.

This apartment was a real gem. On arrival it felt like it was a little out of town however this ended up being a blessing! Its a 15 minute walk, 5 minute drive or a cheap taxi ride to the town centre or the beach. This meant my family and I had all the convenience of the lively town close by and then headed home for a peaceful nights sleep as this apartment as is not overlooked and in a quiet cul de sac. Parking was easily available, the shared pool area was great and the local steak house at the end of the street served up great food. Would definitely stay again.
