"Excellent place to stay for all ages"

Just returned from Portugal with family and stayed at the Casa dos Sonhos two bed apartment. Both bedrooms were to a high standard with quality bed linen, a huge bathroom room, fully equipped kitchen and plush living room. On arrival the hosts had provided us with freshly picked oranges and avocado from their grounds. They even stocked the fridge with wine, cheese and biscuits which added that extra special touch. The grounds are well maintained with pool area and communal area. If you don't have a car the bus stop is just up the road. This is truly home from home. We are booking again to stay at this property this summer.

"excellent location, high standard, very nice owners"

It was a great week in the Algarve. We are pleased with the apartment in every way. Modern equipment, food and beverages (including wine) waiting in the fridge, great garden with fruit trees and clean swimming pool, barbecue, and toys for our son. The owner is very nice and helpful. The house is in a very quiet area - at night you can hear only the cicadas. These are just a few minutes from Olhao, Fuseta beach, and the beach in Santa Lucia. Highly recommended for families with children. A car is essential.

"clean, tidy, very well equipped, lovely greeting including welcome pack of basic food supplies."

The apartment is in an excellent quiet location with easy access to main routes. The apartment was as advertised and very well presented with all equipment needed for our stay. Satellite television, wifi and dvd, washing machine and airer. The pool area is well maintained with plenty of room for guests to eat and relax. A car is essential as the location is set in the beautiful Portuguese countryside with children plenty of parking. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I would heartily recommend this accommodation for families with children of any age: we took our 5 and 15 year old. The pool is the greatest asset. We struggle to find any negatives! Thank you George and Olive.

"Perfect Apartment and great location"

The apartment is furnished to a great standard and has a great homely feel. I must say the beds were extremely comfortable which was a great surprise, the communal pool area was great and there was plenty of seating areas to eat breakfast and dinner outside.
i would say you do need a car the apartment is in a peaceful area and the nearest town is only 5 minutes away in the car and has some great restaurants and bars. There are also many beaches that are a short car ride away, there is plenty to do.
The owners were extremely pleasant and went out their way to make our stay perfect, we will definitely be coming back later on this year.
