brooklyn. purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why brooklyn. chose Alfeição
We purchased our property for it’s breath taking views across the countryside, situated high in the hills above Loule this unique position allows us to enjoy the gentle breezes, which sweep in from both the coast and the glorious surrounding hills. Spring brings wonderful scenes of almond blossom and wild flowers as you meander up the hill, Autumn the wonderful pink and lilac skies as the eagles and hawks soar over head, Winter brings clouds rolling into the valley below waiting for the sun to burst through. Summer Ah those long hot days & glorious sunsets night after night. Even now it all seems to good to be true, so many activities to choose from, but the best of all for us after living and working in London is the tranquillity and being woken every morning to birds singing.

We wanted an away from it all break and the property delivered on every aspect. Perfect location for exploring the hills north of Loule. Very nice to have, for all practical purposes, your own private pool. Could not have been made more welcome.
A beautiful and peaceful place to stay in the Algarve
We had a wonderful week here in this beautiful place. The accomodation is lovely but the setting and the scenery are just spectacular. We loved every minute. Lots of nice places to explore nearby but the best spot right there.
We are always delighted when our guests have enjoyed their holiday with us,
the perfect setting and glorious scenery offers our guests the peace and tranquility we offer.
Beautiful setting for a holiday
Excellent communication with owner as soon as apartment was booked.
Easy to find with owners directions.
As soon as we arrived Brooklyn, Geoff and Joe were there to welcome us to there amazing home in a setting that is truly beautiful, we were shown around our apartment with everything explained to us. All 3 were so friendly throughout our holiday, recommending places to go, things to do and always happy to talk but give you privacy aswell. The pool is great and needed to cool down from the heat, poolside loungers and umbrellas were brilliant.
The apartment has a comfy sofa and tv with a few channels and plenty of dvds of you want to watch them. The kitchen is basic but has everything you would need to be self catering, the bbq outside is a great addition. Bathroom equiped with shower, basin and toilet which were clean. The bedroom has plenty of storage for two or three, personally we found the mattress on the bed wasnt comfy for us, the springs could be felt on our backs, for others it might be fine.
Wi-Fi is available in the apartment and will also work outside around the pool.
The views from the apartment and pool are amazing and one of the best I have ever had on holiday, you are away from the busy touristy areas and get the peace and quiet, if you want to step out of the door to beaches, shops and restaurants this apartment isn't for you. 15 minute drive to the nearest beach and Loule is just down the road that has everything, if you do go a would say you need a car.
We thank our guests for taking the time to give our lovely apartment a review, these all help us to improve our guest accomodation where possible, our aim is to offer them all an excellent experience while they are here.
Every year we like to make certain changes and these reviews help us to achieve this, looks like a new mattress is on the list for next season.
We thank all our guests for coming into our lives and would like to wish them all a very Happy Christmas which is just around the corner and a very safe New Year.
For those thinking of joining us Next year, you will be made very Welcome and we look forward to meeting you.
Memorable holiday in the Algarve, very relaxing location
We had a memorable stay in the apartment which has a marvellous location in the hills above Loule. The apartment is adjacent to the pool enabling us to relax with our evening meals and drinks while looking over the hills and enjoying superb sunsets. Brooklyn and family ensured that the pool was always available to us for our entire stay of 14 days. They attended to our every need and were anxious to ensure that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We endeavour to ensure our guests have a memorable holiday, as we state the holiday home is ensured to offer a relaxing and stress free vacation. We are fortunate enough to ensure our guests are not surrounded by a building site, or house right next door which could be full of other guests enjoying their holiday.
Being central the whole experience is one of time out and ideal for those looking to enjoy and explore the Algarve. It is also essential that that they are able to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of glorious views and sunsets, from their pool side terrace which enjoys the serenity of the true Algarve.
Our guests are fortunate enough to be close enough to enjoy the wonderful beaches of the Algarve, as well as the small and historical villages and towns inland, which offer excellent restaurants both serving traditional Portuguese dishes as well as those comfort foods we all enjoy at reasonable prices.
Great views, location, terrace and swimming pool
Quiet area, spacious outside area terrace and fabulous views. Inside okay but very small and rather basic. Paid extra to have access to English TV but this was useless as the signal was so poor it hardly had the strength to load anything and when it did the programmes froze after a few minutes. Gave up very quickly. Although not the fault of the owners, they should at least be honest with their renters and explain properly about just how poor the signal strength is. Read loads of books though.
Great secluded relaxing week in the sun
Lovely apartment in a secluded villa just a few minutes drive from Loule. We received a warm welcome from Brooklyn and Geoff and the poolside had amazing views and a fantastic sunset. A nice and relaxing place to stay to get away from it all and chill out. Didn't want to leave. The local bakery is well worth a trip too
Thank you you lovely people, we were so pleased you enjoyed your stay it was a pleasure to have met you both. It is always rewarding to know that our guests enjoy the peace and tranquility the amazing views and glorious sunsets.
The little Bakery offers so much as a lovely way to relax in the garden and enjoy their hospitality.
Hope to see you both again.
Brooklyn and Geoff.
