Great location on the popular Gramacho resort near Carvoeiro and Ferragudo
What makes this Bungalow unique
We really love our holidays here, we spend many evenings on the terrace and it's lovely to have the pool just a short walk across the garden area. The house is spacious and easily big enough for a family of 4. There is air conditioning for the summer months as well as ceiling fans in the lounge and bedrooms and we have a lovely log burner for the winter months. The house is only a 5 minute walk from the clubhouse where we often sit and enjoy the views over the 18th fairway, you can also eat here if you don't want to go into the village. There is a mini market on site which is ideal for picking up daily essentials but the large supermarket is only a short drive away.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Another lovely stay
Brilliant setting, fantastic managers. You could not ask for anything more.
Thank you Emma & Mike
Just like home
The apartment is perfectly located close to golf, swimming pool and a short drive to local towns. Furnishings are modern and to a high standard and spotlessly clean. There is everything there that you could possibly need and the booking process is so simple. Additionally, the management company take a real interest in your needs to ensure your stay is as enjoyable as possible. I would highly recommend this property for a relaxing holiday.
Great apartament! Everything went perfectly. Emma is a marvelous host!
I recommend this apartment especially for golfers, Gramacho course is literally on it’s doorstep! Every other Pestana course is maximum 20min away. Everything You need for your stay in this place is provided. Someday I will come back for sure!
Thank you Mike and Emma. Our stay was wonderful!
The food and wine left in the fridge was really appreciated. The location was very peaceful and yet close to be able to experience lots of sight seeing.
If we come back to the Algarve 133a is where we would love to stay.
Thank you Jo for your lovely review, we really appreciate the feedback and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. It was really lovely to meet you all and if you ever decide to return to the Algarve please don´t hesitate to contact us if you are looking for somewhere to spend your holidays. Kind regards, Emma and Mike
Lovely little bungalow
Property excellent, location excellent, facilities excellent but the bungalow faces the wrong way if you want to sit in the sun. The patio and garden chairs were always in the shade - may be better in mid summer when the sun is higher in the sky!
Quality accomodation in perfect location
The apartment had everything you could possibly need for either a short or longer stay holiday.
The only issue we had was that on arrival we were informed the fridge freezer was not working properly. However, pending a new integrated fridge freezer being installed the following week, Emma & Mike immediately provided us with a standalone fridge to ensure we could at least store butter, milk, drinks, etc. This was very much appreciated and testament to Emma & Mike's focus on customer service.
Our only disappointment initially was that there is only a very very small charcoal bbq which just wasn't practical to use for 4 adults (with healthy appetites!). I understand this is due to restrictions placed on bbq's in some properties by Pestana. However, we discovered that Intermarche supermarket (5 minutes drive) actually has a charcoal bbq at their meat counter and we were able to buy hot freshly barbecued meat (e.g. chicken, pork, beef, kebabs, sausages etc). As a result we were able to enjoy a few bbqs without the actual hassle of cooking - win/ win !
The dining area/ conservatory was well used by us as it is bright, spacious with great views of the pool/ garden and surprisingly cool as it is well shaded by trees so the sun does not shine directly in to the room.
The temperature was in the mid 30's during our 3 week stay and the fans in all the rooms and the air conditioning were well used and made it comfortable within the apartment.
All your UK channels were available on the 3 TV's so we didn't miss any of our favourite programmes at night or any of the major sporting events e.g. golf, cricket, football.
The apartment is directly across from the golf course which meant I didn't need the car as I have before when staying elsewhere on the Pestana Estate. Also, we could cross the road to the clubhouse restaurant to enjoy a drink or meal without having to bother with the car. As an aside, the clubhouse has just had a major re-furbishment and looks really impressive. Additionally, the food was excellent.
During our 3 week stay the apartment was thoroughly cleaned twice by cleaners with linen, towels etc replaced.
The pool was only a few steps from the apartment and we never had any problem in getting sunbeds/ Umbrellas even though we were there during peak season in August.
We have stayed in several other apartments on the Pestana estate and this is easily the best and one that we will be booking again in the future. Highly recommended!
This beautiful 2 bedroom ground floor bungalow is situated on the well maintained Gramacho Golf resort located just a 45 minute drive from Faro Airport, and just a short drive from the popular towns of Carvoeiro and Ferragudo, a number of gorgeous beaches and various other holiday attractions.
Tourists return to Carvoeiro year after year, unable to resist the charm this town offers, Situated between Lagos and Albufeira, Carvoeiro is known for it´s relaxed and friendly environment perfect for winding down and experiencing what the Algarve has to offer.
There are a number of secluded sandy beaches where you can spend hours relaxing or take a boat trip and visit the magical coves (grotto´s) of the Western Algarve. Although smaller and less commercial than some of the other towns Carvoeiro enjoys some of the best cuisine around. There are a number of traditional Portuguese restaurants where the fresh fish on offer is highly recommended, or alternatively you can choose from Indian, Italian, Tapas, Chinese or English cuisine. During the day you will find a selection of cafe´s and small bars where you can sample some of the traditional Portuguese pastries and fresh croissants.
You don´t have to be a keen golfer to enjoy the Gramacho resort, there are two swimming pools just steps away from the apartment, both fully equipped with loungers and parasols or you may choose to sit on the bungalow's terrace On site there are also tennis courts and the golf club restaurant and bar where you can get food and drink conveniently throughout the day as well as a small supermarket for all the essentials.
If you fancy something slightly more adventurous there is the slide ´n´ splash waterpark nearby (5 minute drive) or take a trip to Zoo Marine (25 minute drive) which is great for a family day out.
