“Absolutely fantastic!! Book this apartment NOW!!”
Reviewed September 19, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Just home from a weeks stay at this apartment and I cannot stress enough how fantastic the whole experience was from start to finish. Staying at the apartment were myself and my husband, our 1 year old and my parents. It truly is a home away from home, the bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable, having the en suite shower/wc was fantastic. The kitchen is fully equipped (washing machine was a godsend!) and the living area/balcony were perfect. A travel cot, high chair and steriliser were provided for the baby (amazing not to have to worry about this) and the whole apartment was immaculately clean, very modern and well kept. The pool area is lovely and easily accessible and very secure. The location is fantastic as it is a short walk to the main strip of the "new town" but far enough away that you won't hear any noise from the bars. We loved going down into the old town, which is a lovely 30 minute walk or a brilliant little tourist train ride away! There are plenty of little shops nearby and a large supermarket (selling everything from food to nappies) about a 10 minute walk away. We dealt with Darran on this occasion who couldn't have been more helpful and even arranged our transfer from the airport (very friendly staff and minibus had a baby car seat) and a very handy "welcome note" provided us with every piece of information you could need. I could rave on forever about how great this apartment is but my final piece of advice is just to book it and see for yourself! We will certainly be returning as soon as possible!

“Very Impressed.”
Reviewed August 24, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This was our first experience in an apartment having always stayed in hotels. Lovely apartment in a great location -near to the strip but just far enough away for peace and quiet.
The pool was never crowded and cleaned regularly.
The owners have made this a home away from home and would not hesitate to recommend.

Can not fault the prompt and helpful customer service provided by Eddie.
Thanks again.

“Sao Francisco Apartments Albufeira”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our family had a really enjoyable 10 day stay at the Algarve. The Sao Francisco apartments were very well equipped, and indeed were that well equipped we should have left a lot of our household holiday gadgets at home, they were provided and we didn't need to bring any. The apartment was immaculately clean and very well cared for. The secuirity around the complex was excellent and pool facilities are very good. Everything about the apartment was of a very high standard.
The location is excellent just 2 minutes from the northen part or quite part of 'The Strip'.
the tarnsfers to and from the airport that were also organised by D & E were excellent.
We would have no hesitation recommending staying at the Sao Francisco apartments and would definitely consider a return visit to stay in the same apartments.
Thanks D & E for a great holiday let!

“A true gem of an apartment”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This apartment looked good on the website and the reviews were also very good, which is what persuaded me to book it for my husband and I, along with our sister-in-law. The whole process of booking it, with transport, etc was seamless. The apartment is the best we have ever stayed in in Portugal, decorated and cleaned to a very high standard and suited our purpose exactly. We could not have aksed for more and will definitely be booking this one again. Why go elsewhere when you have found exactly what you are looking for? In one word.......EXCELLENT.

“Fantastic Apartment - Highly Recommended”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Just back from a great week at this apartment and already planning our next visit.

Upon arrival the apartment was presented to an exceptional standard, very clean and welcoming. The apartment has everything that you could possibly need to enjoy a holiday - felt very much like a home from home!

The apartment is even more spacious than the pictures show with ample room for our family of five to live in.

Very close to all amenities with plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from close by.
.
All our transfers were booked through the owner were timely, friendly and reliable.

Especially enjoyed the lovely sunshine on balcony in evening with great view of the sun setting.

All correspondence with the owner was timely and informative.

Highly recommend a stay here.

“Will come back again & again”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Just enjoyed my second stay in this apartment and once again had another thoroughly enjoyable holiday. On this occasion we got Darran, the owner, to arrange taxi transfers to and from the airport and were picked up seamlessly on both journeys, which took the stress out of arranging this at the airport. We reached the apartment to find it exactly as remembered. It is immaculately maintained and despite it being constantly in use feels fresh and welcoming. We quickly settled in to the apartment, stocking up on essentials from the handy nearby shop, and before long we were heading out to the old town for the evening. Getting around Albuferia is very straight forward from this location. A five minuet stroll will take you to the top of the strip where there are plenty of bars and restaurants. Alternatively you can get a taxi or the motorised train, if you don't feel like walking, to the old town where yet again you are spoilt for choice of cracking places to eat and drink. During the day my favourite pastime was chilling in and around the pool with a good book and soaking up the Algarve sun. However, we did venture further afield by hopping on a train to Faro had great day wondering around the old part of the town and also looking at the shops in the new. To sum it up another wonderful relaxing holiday which I did not want to come home from and yes I will be going back.

“You won't be disappointed!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Stayed in this apartment 16-30 Aug 2013 with my husband and our two year old. The apartment is fantastic, has everything you could ever need and more! We were very impressed to say the least! The apartment is very modernly decorated, rooms could be what you'd expect from a 4-5 star hotel they are really lovely, living space is great and the fully fitted kitchen is fantastic! Air conditioning throughout too which really helped during our stay when temperatures were very high! We also enjoyed a barbeque on our balcony with a lovely outside dining area to sit and watch the sun go down!

The grounds of the apartment are very secure with a gated entrance. Pool area is lovely and the apartment has its own loungers so you can come and go as you please knowing your lounger will be waiting for you when you get back!

The apartment is in an excellent location, just a couple of minutes walk to the strip with all the bars and restaurants and shops. You would never know you were that close as you don't hear a single sound from it where the apartment is located! There's a wee road train, the stop for this is only about a 5 minute walk from the apartment and for 4€ you get an all day ticket, the train has 4 stops, one of which is the old town and it only takes about 15 mins to get you there!

We dealt with Eddie when booking the apartment and he couldn't have been more helpful, always quick to respond to any of our questions. He also arranged transfers from the airport for us too and I would highly recommend the company he uses, very friendly people :-)

If your considering booking this apartment then I would definitely recommend it, you will not be dissapointed. Honestly could not fault it in anyway.
