We enjoyed our first winter in Portugal in a wonderful apartment in Monte Laguna. The apartment was all that was advertised and a bit more. Our host Luis was very accommodating and helpful each and every time that we had to contact him. The apartment was clean, bright and well located. We look forward to a trip there next year.

First of all the location and the weather was superb. Sunshine just about everyday and comfortable warm weather even in January and February. Vilamoura and Algarve might be the best kept secret among North American travellers. I walked everywhere -to the grocery stores, hairdresser, golf courses, church, beach, marina, down the boulevard of Joao Meireles and took advantage of the outdoor exercise equipment. The condominium apartment was spacious and decorated in beautiful turquoise blue and accented in coral and orange colours. So cheerful and relaxing. The kitchen was huge and equipped with everything you could ask for and more. I cooked a lot in the kitchen and took advantage of the fresh tasty portuguese fresh meats, fruits and vegetables. The terrace was spacious and I enjoyed sitting outside relaxing reading the newspaper and sipping that wonderful portuguese wine. The building was very quiet and each morning I woke to the sound of chirping birds and sea gulls. I slept better there than at home. The television had a great selection of movie channels which I enjoyed watching in the evenings. I met Helena the host, a very lovely lady who surprised me one day with a bottle of Port Wine. Irina the housekeeper was great and was always available when I called with any questions or requests. Irina did a great job cleaning the unit. I have recommended this property to my Canadian friends and would not hesitate to come again.
