Impressed with Villa it had everything you could think of.
We really enjoyed our holiday and Apulia is beautiful with amazing seafood resturants that had queues for tables day and nightly. The beach was packed and only 5 min walk for those that enjoy the sand. Taxis are hard to come by so if you are not planning on hiring a car don't plan any day trips out. There is a small supermarket 5 min walk with everything you could want but if wanting to travel to larger supermarkets like us either be prepared to cycle using bikes in garage or walk for about 1 mile.
Finally the Villa, you can tell this was once a well loved home as it had everything you could think of and for 2 families we had plenty of space with the kids loving the pool and hammock.
Apulia is quiet and not commercial area. Although there is plenty of choice to eat out within 5 min walk, there was not many bars for a quiet drink in the evening without a slightly longer walk.
Stayed here for 10 days, the villa was perfect for all of our needs catering for 4 adults and 4 children. The pool area was very clean and tidy with plenty of room for all of us to relax. The villa is in a nice location close to many well attended seafood restaurants all at reasonable prices, don't order too much the portions are huge!. There is a bar literally 2 minutes away, the Wheels Bar, which from the outside doesn't look particularly welcoming but don't be deceived it is very nice inside. The locals are extremely nice people. The only thing we would have a slight negative about was the lack of activities for children and on this basis I would recommend a car to go further afield. Helena, the owner and Maria and George looked after us very well. All in all a very relaxing chilled out holiday.
Lovely Home Next to the beach and great resturants
We have never been to the north of portugal before - always to the algarve. But we are glad we did!
Lovely warm and friendly people, great food, generous portions, and great value.
The house was comfortable and well presented - the kitchen well equipped. There was 3 double bedrooms upstairs and a lower ground floor 'rumpus room' ( a sort of play room area for kids) with 2 sofa beds which were ideal for our two younger children (8 and 6)
The garden is not huge but a nice size on a corner plot and the pool was a reasonable size. For us the location was by far the strongest point of the house. 3 minutes walk to the beach and you are spoiled for choice with so many truly excellent quality restaurants and cafes.
Apulia and Ofir town/village centers are only a nice walk away and the airport was only 20 minutes in the car. This year we wanted to explore the North a little so we hired a car. I think if we came back we would not hire a car but just get a transfer and the moeny we save on hire car we spend on food and wine :-)
So a great holiday nice experience - also good service from Fernando and Helena - thank you so much!
Beautiful well equipped home
This is a beautifully maintained and equipped villa with everything you need for your stay. Photos are very accurate, we had a very happy week. Helena,Horatio and Fernando were very helpful with useful local tips and ideas. Would highly recommend.
Thank you very much for your review - we are pleased you had a good stay. We look forward to welcoming you back to the North of Portugal perhaps next year :-)
Sehr schönes Haus mit komfortabler Ausstattung inklusiver nützlicher Gegenstände wie Sonnenschirme, Windschutz,.... Die Lage ist in laufnähe zu guten Restaurants und zum Strand. Die Vermieter waren jederzeit sehr gut erreichbar und hilfsbereit. Wir hatten einen super Urlaub.
