  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderfull vacation in this appartment for one week. The appartment was well equipped, and there was some ekstra service , such as towels, bedding and a arrival package with some food etc. The pool area was very child friendly , and wee used it every day. Nice area with supermarket and restaurant near by, and small cities with markets and sealife.

Nice apartment in nice area!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week in Chris and Carol's wonderful apartment Casa Pendana. They were very serviceminded to us both before and after our arrival. The beaches nearby are very nice and not to crowded. We didn't miss anything, the apartment was well equipped. The brochures found in the apartment advised us with both practical matters about the apartment and the surroundings as with things to do around on the Algarvian coastline.

We wouldn't hesitate for one moment to return!

Casa Pendana – A Fantastic Apartment in a Lovely Setting.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have just enjoyed two weeks in this lovely apartment – a real home from home except this has stunning sea-views and sunsets. It is obvious the owners Chris and Carol have put a lot of thought into making the apartment very comfortable for guests with high quality fixtures and furnishings. There are two bedrooms and bathrooms, a well -stocked kitchen, living/ dining room and a great balcony. Everything you need for a relaxing holiday is provided including a substantial welcome pack which was a great touch. Casa Pendana is located in an extremely well maintained complex with a great swimming pool and tennis courts. Just a short walk away are the beaches and cliffs with great restaurants and the most picturesque church located at the top of the cliff.

We cannot wait to go back! Thanks Chris and Carol for a fabulous holiday.
