"Lovely home from home"
I stayed in this apartment for two weeks with my husband and 10 year old daughter - it was great. Spacious clean accommodation with lots of extras to make it comfortable - TV with UK channels, DVD pl… More

My wife and I booked this at the last minute, and we thoroughly enjoyed the place. The actual block was a little quiet, (not too many holiday makers I guess),
but this was a good thing as far as we were concerned. There are numerous bars and restaurants within 5 - 10 minutes walk of the apartment, and a 15 minute walk to the sea-front showed that there were many more around. We can recommend A Velha Casa, on Rua 25 de Abril. There is a very good bar, the Old Barrel in a complex just the other side of the railway station, in the same complex is an excellent restaurant, Vert 'in. We had dinner there on my wife's birthday and the French proprietress saw me give my wife a bangle as her gift. She came over and asked to see it, and when she saw that it was inscribed "Toi, et seulement toi" (You and only you) she asked why was it in French. When I explained my family's French connections, we launched into a long conversation in French which culminated in a special free birthday chocolate dessert for my wife, and a large top shelf cognac for both of us. That's what I call good P.R.!

"Simply Perfect - Didnt want to come home"
Just returned from this Penthouse, I went with my husband and two teenage sons. The apartment was equipped with everything , even a washing machine and dishwasher. The apartments decor was lovely so relaxing and you certainly felt spoilt being in such a place. The rooms were very spacious with plenty of plug points and clean. There was a balacony and private roof top terrace with lovely views. The pool was cleaned weekly, and the boys used it daily. Cabanas in lovely for the evening, where you can relax over dinner watching the boats in the harbour. All in all perfect break, felt very safe no riff raff, and will definately be returning next year, really didnt want to leave. Thank you

"Perfect holiday apartment"
Lovely clean modern spacious apartment with added bonus of a rooftop sun terrace, in a nice quiet area and a 5 minute walk from the train station with good service to other towns (Tavira, Faro). Would highly recommend to anyone.

Had a wonderful weeks holiday staying in the penthouse apartment. Beautifully decorated, with air con, very clean, plenty of seating areas, and extremely secure. The rooms were very comfortable with no outside noise. A really nice quiet venue to enjoy a peaceful holiday.
Shops, supermarket, cash machines, were all within walking distance. We enjoyed walking into Cabanas of an evening via the Hairy Lemon Pub who employed very friendly staff, their food was delicious, and their Sagres lager only one euro too!! The beach was only a boat taxi ride away which you take from Cabanas sea front, stunning beach which is well worth a visit. I would highly recommend staying at this apartment - really enjoyed our holiday. Thanks ever so much!
