Delightful apartment 10 minutes from Old Town
Beautiful apartment in a residential/business area. Kitchen has all you need including dishwasher, the complimentary bar was delightful, and thank you for the Valentines Day gift, it was delicious! The washing machine was a plus. The towels and linens were very nice and love the non slip bathtub. About a 10 minute walk to restaurants and old town. Be aware of some noisey roosters heard in the bedroom start at 4A and pulling the outside rolling shutters did not mute and also the bar across the front was noisy in the evening but shutting the door the the bedroom suite muted that. The owners Paulo and Maria were so helpful in providing guidance on our stay and thank you for the restaurant recommendation, it was wonderful. The only recommendation would be a french press coffee pot, it was difficult to find the right size pods to fit the coffee machine. Thank you for offering your wonderful apartment.
excellent location, perfectly done apartment, great hosts
The apartment is well located - supermarkets, the municipal market, restaurants, cafes, Faro old town and marina - all within a 2-5 minute walk. The apartment itself is very clean with excellent furnishings and bathroom. The hosts are superb - meeting us after 9pm, showing us carefully where everything was and laying on a nice set of welcome drinks. The care with which the hosts look after their guests is shown by the easy to follow labels on the appliances in three languages!
We really enjoyed having you as guests.
We are sensitive to your opinion and we hope you have the desire to return.
Thank you very much.
Beautiful apartment in the centre area, walking distance to the old town and all main areas. Apartment is full of light. Host was very helpful in indicating ways to reach the islands and organized trips. I would certainly return!
On a trip to Faro beach you can visit the nautical center that offers activities such as kayaking and wind surfing. The beach can be reached by car, taking the bus at the stop next to the building door or on the career boat (these options are recommended by the tour, but they only exist in summer). Alternatively there are private dock operators who do sightseeing throughout the year.
A visit to the island of Deserta and / or the Island of the Lighthouse is strongly recommended for the beauty of the beaches and natural environment. You will be able to observe many species of seabirds and eventually you will be able to visit and go up to the lighthouse (this is conditioned and only available according to the times established by the Navy).
If you wish to take the route to the beach by bicycle you will find near the apartment operators who rent bicycles and scooters (it is advisable to travel through Montenegro and behind the airport - we strongly discourage the route along the normal road).
For those who like to join a walk in natural environment, bird watching, we recommend exploring the Ludo, natural reserve of the Ria Formosa Natural Park.
In the city there are some points of historical interest and two museums.
Alameda Park is 200 meters away and is a relaxing place where you can rest and read a book, since, next to the park, there is the municipal library.
At the top of the avenue you will find a small maintenance circuit where you can exercise in a calm environment.
For those who like to travel by train a return trip to Vila Real de Santo António will offer beautiful landscapes of the Ria Formosa, as well as a brief visit to that beautiful city.
In addition the downtown area has bars and varied restaurants where you can enjoy typical Mediterranean meals.
