Fine modern apartment with views to sea and lift access. This 2 bed apartment accommodates up to 6 people. There is ensuite to master bedroom and a family bathroom. Large living room opening onto large south and west facing balcony - ideal for evening drinks as the sun sets! Inside there is a large separate kitchen and entrance hall and inner hall to bedrooms. The apartment is equipped with TV,DVD player and WiFi. The kitchen has hob, oven, microwave, washing machine toaster electric kettle, mixer and sandwich maker. Outside a fine shared pool gets the sun almost all day and gives scope for a decent swim and with a very shallow section for very young children (about 15cm deep). There are sun beds around the pool. Located on a slight rise there are good views all round and open count...Fine modern apartment with views to sea and lift access. This 2 bed apartment accommodates up to 6 people.

Located on a slight rise there are good views all round and open country and villas to the rear of the property. A short walk leads to the sea front which has been upgraded and is largely pedestrianised. Armacao de Pera is a nice town with a fishermens end and good restaurants with excellent fresh fish dishes. There is a good range of local shops and a covered daily market for fish and vegetables. Comments left by previous Guests:- Guest - Acton; September 2010 This is second visit . We found it as good this time as last time. The apartment was spotlessly clean. We would not hesitate to return again here. Guest - Smith of Bristol; May 2011 A Great 10 days. The kids loved the apartment and the pool; plenty of space and very comfy beds. Good breeze every night. Great sunsets. Recommend Slide and Splash and Zoo Marine as great days out and also Albandeira beach – on the way to Carvoeiro. Guest - Woodward of Bristol; July-August 2011 Our best family holiday to date! There is nothing we could find fault with. A great apartment, wonderfully set out and equipped. The pool is great; the local beach and restaurants are fab. Would love to come back. Guest - Childers of Suffolk; November 2011 Wow what a lovely apartment –home from home. Thank you both for a lovely stay Guests from Ayrshire; June 2013 Just returned from a fantastic holiday; thank you for the use of your beautiful apartment. Guest - Clarke from Romsey; August 2014 wrote a card saying 'Thank you for use of your lovely apartment. We had a great holiday'. More

About the neighbourhood
The Algarve is normally blessed with excellent weather and if there is rain (normally out of summer season) it is hard but normally very short lived as the clouds come off the Atlantic and soon pass over to provide more sunny weather. The area is relatively green, being on the coast and getting the occasional rain shower and is not generally dusty and dirty from barren dryness. There are interesting coastal towns from Faro, Portimao and Lagos, being big old established towns to small country villages and hamlets with traditional white houses. Roads are generally well maintained and pretty quiet making driving stress free. Behind the coastal strip are the Mountains rising to several thousand feet, with distant views right back to the sea, Portimao and nearby coastal towns and villages. ...
