Clean, comfortable, excellent location, sweet hosts
I recommend this apartment, however be forewarned that the wifi only really worked in the kitchen and front bedroom, and on our last day it didn't work at all, not sure why. So if a good internet connection is important, I would not choose this place. That said, the beds were very comfortable, the place was clean, and the hostess left us a bottle of orange wine, as well as four Portuguese traditional pastries -- a very nice start to our stay!
Comfortable home away from home with lovely courtyard, personal touches and fantastic location.
Faro is our new favorite town. It is the perfect size, extremely safe and easy to get around and very historic. The old town is full of delightful buildings and tile art and beautiful sidewalks made of 3 colours of limestone arranged in many different patterns and images. Fernanda made us very welcome and we loved that she lives upstairs, it adds a personal touch and is reassuring. We highly recommend the free walking tour that meets at the tourist info office, and Marcel as guide. We also highly recommend the tourist info office where we were given perfect directions as to how to get to Parque Ria Formosa by local bus. Do not miss the Parque. Enjoy!
This was all about location for us as 4 ladies on a week away and not wanting to drive. On the map, look for the arc de Vila go through and it’s the first road on the left.
The old town is simply beautiful and you really get to soak up the atmosphere.
The apartment is well equipped, everything we needed. Very safe with a main communal door and then a main door to the apartment. The owners live upstairs and work in rooms that come off the quaint courtyard area for the apartment. We were reassured at this, although felt couldn’t sit out in our pj’s for breakfast for example. They were both busy people it seemed, with customers coming and going.
The building is full of character but you still had the advantages of being able to get a taxi pick you up outside. It is, walking distance from the train/bus station we did it quite easily. If you are driving yourself, there is a car park meters away.
We got a taxi to Faro airport at cost of 17 euros. Faro was a great place to visit with lots of tradition, but modern influences for those that want that too. Loads of taverns, eating/drinking places minutes away or the town with good shops and loads more restaurants. Would recommend staying here without hesitation. Have a look for the free faro walking tour- was great.
Delightful apartment in the heart of Faro old town.
Fernanda and her husband were very welcoming and this lovely apartment had everything we needed for a short break in Faro. It is peaceful, but only a short walk from a wide selection of shops and restaurants. The airport bus drops you off at the bus station which is just 10 mins walk away, and the bus fare was just a few euros. There is an extensive pedestrianised area in the centre of Faro with cafes and bars if you enjoy people watching! Highly recommended.
Quiet, convenient, charming - a chance to really become immersed in Algarve culture.
Very convenient, tastefully decorated, very comfy bed, quiet, well equipped for everything we needed, and we loved sitting out in the enclosed courtyard every morning and evening listening to the birds.
Property was very conveniently placed for train and bus stations and the ferry jetty, and a minute’s walk from some super restaurants within the Old Town. Fernanda, our hostess, was charming and very helpful at suggesting places to visit, as well as ordering an early-morning taxi for us on our departure.
This was a lovely, clean, spacious stay in the heart of the historic walled old town of Faro. It had a beautiful garden off the kitchen where we enjoyed breakfast. It was quiet and closing the shutters ensured an excellent sleep. I would go back and stay here in a heartbeat but for a longer stay. Our hostess was so helpful and we had a much appreciated welcome gift.
House located within the city walls, near restaurants, bars, church, museum, library, craft shops, marina, ferry pier to the beaches and car park.
