About Lidia Serrador


My name is Lidia Serrador. Thank you for visiting our listing!

My husband & I purchased this place over 20 years ago. We lived there for a couple years while our kids were teenagers.

We had a great time familiarizing ourselves with the area & culture.

We loved our time in the Algarve!

Our kids still tell us that this is our 'home away from home'.

We are originally from Portugal and immigrated to Canada over 45 years ago. My husband & I have been married for 40 years.

We hope you enjoy your stay at our condo!

Lidia Serrador purchased this condo in 1997

Vacation Condo in Quarteira, Algarve - 5 mins from the beach
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

A great deal in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious and comfortable, with probably the best bed that we have ever had at a rental property. The kitchen is well-equipped with plenty of pots and pans, etc., for cooking at home. The unit was very clean and in excellent repair. The WiFi worked flawlessly and the choice of TV cable channels is extensive, with many English language stations. We had no problem finding parking on the street and our car was safe there.

The apartment is not in a tourist compound, but rather a typical Portuguese apartment complex, which we happened to prefer. With this comes the occasional noise from neighbours but this never disturbed our sleep. The building itself was clean and safe. There is a large grocery store just nearby which makes shopping very convenient. The owner and her representative in Quarteira were friendly, accessible, and helpful.

We stayed in the unit in a rather chilly February, and kept ourself warm via two space heaters. The apartment (like most of those in the Algarve) does not have central heating. The electrics were a bit tricky -- we learned not to turn on the oven and the space heater at the same time, for instance. Thankfully the circuit breaker panel was near the front door and was easily accessible and simple to use. The instant hot water system was quirky during showers -- occasionally the water would run cold for a minute or so before returning to its usual warmth.

This is not a luxury resort -- but for the price it is a great (and comfortable) find.
