Our clean, fresh 2 bedroomed apartment has a main master bedroom with an adjoining en suite, dressing area, ample wardrobe space and french doors leading onto the sunny south facing patio garden with the spacious 2nd bedroom having twin beds with large built in wardrobes which is situated adjacent to the main bathroom off the hallway.

The lounge dining area also has french doors onto the patio and has comfortable seating for 6, dining for 6, a sofa bed, window seating, open log fire, flatscreen TV/DVD, etc and leads into the kitchen with marble worktops and all essential mod cons, dishwasher, etc. The separate utility room houses the washing machine, ironing board etc.

The modern main bathroom is situated off the hallway with a bath, shower, wash hand basin, toilet and bidet. The en-suite off the master bedroom contains a similar bath, shower, wash hand basin, toilet and bidet. Fresh towels and linen are provided and are changed weekly. Mid stay linen changes can be provided on request or you may use the washing machine within the utility room if preferred (Guests are asked to bring their own beach towels please).

Pushchairs and Z beds are available for hire on request along with welcome packs to include tea, coffee, sugar, milk, water, bread, margarine, cheese, ham, biscuits, mini cereals, kitchen roll, toilet rolls and a safe key is available from reception for a 10 euro hire.

The patio/terrace has padded sun loungers, table, chairs and parasol and is surrounded by beautiful mature landscaped gardens and is not overlooked. Within the grounds there are superbly maintained grassed areas to sunbathe, picnic or for children to play with 4 snack bar/restaurants situated around the pool areas serving hot + cold snacks and drinks during the day and local, European and ‘A la Carte’ dishes during the evening. Into town and especially around the main square there is a wide choice of cafes, bars and restaurants to cater for most tastes and budgets.

The apartment was newly built in 2006 within an already highly successful, safe and secure complex which has a spacious village feel maintaining traditional Portuguese flavour. The Algarve is beautiful, friendly and the weather remains good nearly all the year through, still around the 15 degree mark in the winter. The complex is ideal being close enough to town and all its amenities but being just on the outskirts is far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet.

Situated on the ground floor to the quiet rear of the complex the apartment is a few minutes walk from the 24 hour main reception with internet and Wi-Fi facilities, public telephone and ATM cash machine. (There are plenty of further ATM’s and banks in town). The complex has some walkways and paths that do have fair inclines and may not be fully suitable for those with walking difficulties.

Set amongst beautiful, clean and well maintained grounds the apartment is a lovely place to stay or use as a base to then discover the rest of The Algarve or whatever is your preference.
