The primary selling point of this home is the location! The views from the dining room and bedroom are fantastic. The pictures do not do it justice. Then you are just steps from a really wonderful walking trail (Seven Hanging Valleys Trail) which runs all along the coast for miles. We woke up each day and walked to an amazing viewpoint. It never got old.
You also have a private rooftop terrace with a grill and lounge chairs. We spent many hours relaxing up there.
The kitchen and bathroom are both modern and well equipped. There is a small market a 1 minute walk away, as well as several dining options. Francisco at Helder’s Restaurant is a wealth of information about day trips from the area, We took his advice and did 3 different itineraries he suggested. A short drive away (or a manageable walk if you enjoy walking) is Carvoeiro, with many shops and restaurant options. There are also a number of grocery stores a short drive away for self catering.
Harald was easy to work with and answered all of our questions promptly. He made the rental process easy, arranging for check in and check out to our schedule.
Parking at the unit was no problem also.
We enjoyed our stay very much.
Outstanding vacation, very quiet apartment especially during the slow season. the apartment backs onto the cliff top walking trails where the sunrise and sunsets are amazing. Amenities are all you need and Harald is a two minute walk away if you need anything more. The photos do not do the apartment justice. It is better than it looks. Streets in the area have no names so there is no actual address, so use the address of Harald's office. This is legitimate and well worth the cost for the best holiday in the algarve. It is out of the way of most nightlife but if you want busy it's a short 10 minute drive to Lagoa. Carvoeria is about a 20 minute walk for shops and a multitude of restaurants. The Spar market is about a 4 minute walk where you can get most essential items like bread, wine, cheese etc. and there are three restaurants beside the Spar market.
We will definitely be back for an even longer vacation next time since 3 weeks went by in a flash.
