Really enjoyed it! Would stay there again.
Very nice place
We stayed here several nights. The place was exactly as described, very clean, new and well equipped. We prepared great meals with product from the near market, great by the way. Wifi was wonderful. I would go back.
Perfect Little Hideaway Convenient to Everything!
The description of the property was as listed and so much more. The apartment was spotless and pristine and perfect for two people. We were able to walk to anywhere in town easily and especially loved being very close to the waterfront, fish market, and farmers market. The variety and quality of the fresh food available was delightful and the kitchen adequately finished with the tools to prepare our meals. The easy access to the train station was a huge bonus and allowed us to explore the Algarve from end to end. It was only a 12 minute or so walk once we learned our way.
Tomas was extremely helpful and proved information on local attractions, maps, and restaurants. His English is excellent. The tapas bar around the corner was is not to be missed, Tapas e Lendas, and the waiter assured us that the food was so delicious because it was made with love and we believe it! We would highly recommend this property to anyone desiring to travel like a local with all the amenities of home, we would definitely return to this Homeaway listing.
Small but cozy, very clean
Owner is very friendly. Good emailcontact and phonecontact, in English. Thomas picked us up on the outskirts of town the evening we arrived. He gave us a small tour in the apartment. The description on the site is accurate: it's a small but cozy house. It has 2 floors and a spiral stairway, it took some effort to get the luggage to the bedroom, but Thomas helped us. The apartment is in a quiet alley, just behind the "boulevard" with all the restaurants. There were 2 tapas restaurants around the corner. The ferry and Pingo Doce supermarket are about 8 minutes walking and the trainstation about 15 minutes walking.
Pro's of the apartment: comfortable bed and shower, tv in bedroom, internet, 2 toilets, coatrack, dishwash liquid+brush, handsoap, plenty of towels, enough cutlery and pots/pans.
The only negative points: there is no balcony/terrace and it can get a bit chilly in the morning/evening and somethimes a bit moist on the topfloor. The apartment is fillend with chairs and tables, but you can stowe them away to get more space.
We rented bikes at EastAlgarve Bikerental. Mike (english) brought them to the apartment. The bikes were ok and the service was great. Cycling to Faro was hell, you have to follow the N125 for a long time. To Fuzeta it was ok, you have to find the Ecovia cycleroute, that was splendid! From Fuzeta to Tavira was very nice.
We did a boattrip to Farol and walked to Culatra and took the ferry back from there. The National Park, a few km away, is very nice to explore by foot or bike. We used the train once, you can buy tickets on board and bring your bike for free.
Tudo optimo pessoas acolhedoras e gerencia excelente.
très bon séjour, l'appartement est petit mais très bien situé, proche de tous les commerces et bien agréable, il ne manque rien, tout est parfait !
Un couple très gentil. Communication très facile. Tout droit du premier au dernier jour du séjour.
