About Julie Nicholson
Julie, Stuart and family, lived in the Algarve for five years and have now returned to the UK. We fell in love with the Villa the moment we walked in, and we hope other families enjoy our gorgeous home as much as we have.
Julie Nicholson purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Julie Nicholson chose Castro Marim
The area is the unspoilt part of the Algarve, stunning beaches and quaint resorts, yet accessible to other areas. So close to the Spanish border you can sample Spanish or Portuguese cuisine. We were lucky to live in the area for five years, it has everything you need for a holiday. Privacy for sunbathing and swimming. Local resorts with restaurants and bars. nearby shops to peruse around, Supermarkets to buy local produce and stunning beaches for long walks, picnics or sunbathing. This area has all the amenities, beauty and charm, without the costs of the Central Algarve.
What makes this Apartment unique
A unique point to the apartment is the location. The apartment unfolds onto a large undercover area, which in turn unfolds onto a decking area and pool. This backs onto rolling fields, therefore guests have complete privacy to enjoy their holiday. The apartment is a modern design and very spacious.

Very nice clean bright and spacious. Wonderful pool.
Had a lovely relaxing break,pool is lovely. Property would be even better if there was an oven and a new bed as the current one is uncomfortable and creaks every time you move. Should also be made clear before you arrive that to be able to use the TV you need either an I Pad or phone to access the Internet as without those and considerable effort you cannot watch TV. Otherwise a pleasant relaxing apartment.
Thank you for your review, we are always happy to receive constructive reviews. The bed and mattress are only two years old but it is an orthopaedic mattress so maybe uncomfortable for some, will look into changing it asap. The tv situation is a common problem in portugal since Sky changed their satellite position. We do provide a tablet for customers to access the tv through Chromecast. Than you again for your review and apologise with regard to the uncomfortable bed.
Kind regards Julie
