A very comfortable stay in Faro!

  • 5 of 5

Despite the fact that this gorgeous apartment is barely a 5 minute walk from the train station, this gracious host greeted me in person at the station on my arrival to ensure that I wouldn't get lost and that the check in went flawlessly. A complementary welcoming bottle of wine was a very nice touch indeed.

The apartment is scrupulously clean; the TV set is connected to a cable set up that provides not only television but a full range of radio stations that will accommodate any musical tastes; water pressure in the shower is superb; the bathroom is equipped with a great vanity that has plenty of space; the bed was firm and comfortable and the entire apartment was scrupulously clean and beautifully decorated.

The only criticism was entirely beyond the landlord's control. Some business (or maybe even the city government) emptied a dumpster outside the bedroom window every morning at approximately 5 a.m. You certainly don't need an alarm clock when a dumpster lid is banging up and down outside the window!!

Would I return? You bet ... in a heartbeat! Highly recommended.

Perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

Although our stay was short, the accommodation provided by Emilia and Alan was outstanding. Clean, comfortable, spacious, safe and close to downtown Faro. Alan provided all information needed for our stay and communication from Emilia was regular and reassuring leading up to our arrival. I would recommend giving this beautiful apartment in Faro a try.

Appartement bien situé près du centre de Faro

  • 4 of 5

Emilia est une hôtesse très à l'écoute et disponible, nous avons eu un problème de volet roulant qui a été réglé très rapidement, l'appartement est très clair et très propre , une table de salon, 2 chaises, 1 plateau de service seraient bienvenus. L'environnement est calme, on peut garer la voiture dans la rue sans problème. La proximité du centre et du port accessible à pied en 10mn est très agréable .

Schöne, gepflegte und sehr zentral gelegene Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung von Familie Costa war sehr geräumig, gepflegt und sehr zentral gelegen (Bahnhof, Busbahnhof, Haltestelle für Strand und Flughafen). Die Küche war perfekt ausgestattet. Der Aufenthalt war sehr angenehm. Außerdem konnte man bei einem Tanta Emma Laden nebendran alles Nötige einkaufen, sodaß man nicht weit zum Supermarkt laufen mußte. Sehr gute Restaurants waren auch gleich in derNähe. Zur Innenstadt war es auch nicht weit. In der Nacht war es ein bischen laut, da die Müllabfuhr ziemlich viel Lärm machte. Alles in allem kann ich die Wohnung auf jeden Fall empfehlen.
