The apartment is located in a quiet part of town but only 5 minutes walk to the glorious beach, restaurants and shops. With a supermarket two minutes walk away. There are two pools at the apartment, one for children and plenty of space around the pools. Armacao de Pera is also the perfect base for sightseeing, shopping and general fun with the Algarve shopping centre 10 minutes drive away, the famous ZooMarine with the amazing dolphin show only 5 minutes drive away and at least two water parks at Alcantarilha and Lagoa both within 15 minutes drive away.

About Elsa Sousa
My name is Elsa and we are a couple with 2 kids. We live near Lisbon and we love the Algarve. When we need to relax, fantastic weather with sun and beaches ... we go to the Algarve.
Elsa Sousa purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Elsa Sousa chose Silves
We love the Algarve because almost all year we have a long summer. The area and location of the apartment are fantastic. There are some beautiful beaches and a great range of bars and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Faro airport less than an hour drive away.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment itself is so well situated, on 3rd floor with lift and we can walk to the sea in less than 5 minutes or use the communal pool. The apartment has a really new and airy feel and has everything you need on a holiday. The kids are perfectly safe as we have fixed mesh to the balcony and it is all on one level.
Pool / Spa
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Very nice appartement in the Algarve!
We had a lovely stay in Armacao the Pera. I rally like Armecao de Pera because it is touristic but not so has Albufeira. We stayed with 4 adults and 1 child of 6 and was perfectly arranged. Many thanks to Elsa!
Relaxing family holiday
We stayed as a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children, aged 2 and 4) in this lovely apartment.
Elsa was great at responding to any queries whilst booking and pre-holiday. She met us at the apartment and showed us around and we were surprised to see that she had left us a welcome basket, which was very kind and much appreciated. On first impressions, the apartment was exceptionally clean, well organised and with lost of home comforts.
We hired a car as we like to get out and about, however, as everything was on the doorstep, a car is not essential. The beach and shops are 5 minutes walk away with a variety of restaurants and 'Clipper' was a real hit and we ate lovely fish meals there and the staff are very friendly.
With it being our son`s 3 rd birthday whilst on holiday we paid for a 2 day pass at Zoo Marine, which is a must. Absolutely brilliant! We got cheaper tickets from one of the shops on the front instead of paying the full price at Zoo Marine itself.
We travelled to other beaches and Marinha was beautiful and stunning cove, but make sure you sit far back as the tide does come right in! If you do have a car, we stocked up on essentials, like cereal, milk, bread etc from the nearby Aldi (7 minutes in the car)
The pools are great for the family, one bigger pool and one for the children which we found very safe and gated. We managed to go down and get sun beds about 9.30 am, so not too early.
All in all, just what we needed. Thank you Elsa and Jose for providing us with a wonderful apartment and a memorable stay.

Nice time in Armacao de Pera
Apartment is nice and clean and it was pleasure to stay in it. It has everything you might need during your holiday . Beds are comfortable , there air con which really nice during those hot days. It has balcony where you can enjoy your coffee early in the morning or dry your towels after day on the beach...Location is very good as well , its 10 min walk to big supermarket Pingo Doce , 5-10 min walk to the Armacao beach which is always busy, few farmacies is around and its 5 min walk to the centre of Armacao where you can find many restaurants and bars.Our favourite beach was quiet Cova Redonda , its only 5-10 min drive from the apartment. And all famous beaches and caves are within 30 min.drive so car is very essential if you would like to see the beautiful places of Algarve. Lots of parking around and apartment has underground secure parking with place for your car.
There no WIFI in the apartment - this is the only disappointing moment as these days internet is very essential , but it was not listed in the description of the property and we knew that will be no WIFI.
Elsa the owner of apartment was amazing , communication was great , she always responded on my emails and enqueries and gave very clear information.
As we arrived very late evening and our satnav couldn't navigate to the address Elsa meet us in the place where we stuck and directed to the apartment. Also she allowed us to stay few hours more as we supposed to check out 11 .00 am.
Overall we had amazing time in the Algarve and we really enjoyed staying in that apartment and would recommend it to everyone.
Well appointed accommodation
The apartment is very clean, well appointed, with the benefit of air conditioning. 5mins walk to the beach. Private swimming pool. Elsa and Jose were fantastic from start to finish, very accommodating and providing excellent communication throughout. Nice touch when arriving late to receive snacks and drinks. I would highly recommend staying at this apartment.
This is a lovely clean and well kept apartment with everything you need for a self catering holiday. Beds in both rooms are very comfortable. Only saw the owner once for hand over of the keys when we arrived but that was fine and full contact details were left in case we had any problems (which we didn't).
A walk to the wonderful beaches and restaurants is only 5 minutes away with a great selection of places to eat. We tried the set menus which are about 12 Euros and are really are good value for money. Try Grelha, the oldest restaurant in the town. The owner is quite a character and we spent many nights watching him bring the customers in from the street. The set menu here is the best in town and would not hesitate to recommend it. You will not be disappointed.
All in all a great holiday had by both myself, husband and our 14 year old daughter and her friend. The girls did not want to come home so victory at last for picking a perfect location for our annual holiday.
We stayed in the appartement the second time for a short holiday during Christmas.
A good place to stay. Clean, all comfort and large enough for a holiday with children or more adults, especially because of the two larger bedrooms.
Also very pleasant contact with the owners Elsa and José, who provided us with all the needed information
A short walk to the beach.
We didn't use the swimming pool because of the colder weather in December.
Armacoa has a very nice beach, a cozy boulevard with restaurants and a amazing coast line.
It is just a short distance to the touristic places Portimao or Albufera.
To be short: a very good choice.
Special interest holidays:
The Algarve is obviously noted for its golf courses but as well as all these there is horse riding nearby and for walkers it is a fantastic base to explore the protected wetlands of Salgados to the east and the rugged coves and headlands with clifftop walks to the west.
The beach at Armacao de Pera is one of the top ten beaches in the Algarve with lovely golden sands stretching all the way to the beach at Gale. It is 5 minutes walk away and has plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars to choose from. Water activities are one of the main draws to Armacao de Pera. The beaches in Armacao de Pera were recently classified as "Accessible Beaches" meaning that beach-goers have easy access to the beachfront. Restaurants are able to offer table and bar service.
Faro is the nearest airport and is approximately 30 minutes drive away. There are buses and taxis to take you to Armacao but you can also hire a car at the airport if you want to explore or we can provide a very reasonably priced transfer service.
Armacao de Pera is also the perfect base for sightseeing, shopping and general fun with the Algarve shopping centre 10 minutes drive away. The famous Zoo Marine with the amazing dolphin show only 5 minutes drive away and at least two water parks at Alcantarilha and Lagoa both within 10 minutes drive away.
