As the region is famous for its sea food, you can sit and watch the many fishermen bringing in their 'catch' and providing the restaurants with the freshest fish on offer.

"First class apartment with great pool area"
Hi Mags/ Michael. We were both blown away by size, décor and furnishings of your apartment as Teresa showed us round on our arrival. The block is immaculately kept by the residents who were very fri… More

"Perfect for a relaxing break"
This was our first trip to Portugal so we didn't know what to expect. We hired a car for the two weeks & were glad we did. It enabled us to see much more of the Algarve.
The apartment in Armacao de Pera is approx 50 mins from Faro airport & easy to find. It is situated in a large block which is spotlessly clean, there is a lift to all floors. Underground parking is available which was invaluable to us for obvious reasons
The apartment inside was very spacious & light with everything you need for a self catering holiday, very comfortable beds too. The shutters on every window were a bonus, keeping everything cool. Fans were situated in each room with a portable air conditioning unit in the sitting room. Sky TV is also available ( not that we watched any TV!)
All amenities,i.e. beach, supermarket, restaurants, are within walking distance if you don't have a car. All the local beaches are large & sandy. A tip: don't hire the sun beds on the beach, they're very expensive- 13€ for a day!!! Fortunately, there are two chairs & and umbrella at the apartment you can use - most people seemed to do this.
The pool area can be accessed by using the lift & is very secluded. I only used it twice & the second time I had it to myself for the whole afternoon! ( I suspect it will be much busier in peak season though )
Their are many restaurants to try in the main beach area but our favourite was the Vista Mar, a family run restaurant with a great menu at very reasonable prices. Try the monkfish with rice - delicious! (Turn right as you leave the apartment to the bottom of the road, you can't miss it). The cafe Toscana was also a favourite - great toasties! There's also wifi access there if you need it.
We really enjoyed our holiday at Caravela apartment. The owner, Mags, couldn't have been more helpful & while we were there, Alan & Helen who live on the same floor were invaluable for local information & recommendations.
We will definitely be going back to this apartment, can't wait!!

"good comfortable apartment"
good comfortable apartment , 10 mins from beaches , up a hill so need a bit of stamina to get up there . especially after a drink or two . Friendly other residents , nice pool although could do with a few more sun brollies and loungers. apartment well equipped ,third bed quite comfortable although a pull out, but really couldnt fault it .
Amacao fairly quiet at night .not that many bars but the old town is quite lively .
A couple of s/markets at the bottom of the hill with most of what you want but an Asda -type one about half mile away .
We really enjoyed it , good rates , recommend it .
