Belas Vistas Apartments, 1 bedroom sleeps up to 2 adults & 2 children
About Stella Cox
We had been coming to the Algarve for our holidays and fell in love with it and like many people we dreamed of owning a property here. We decided to see if we could make it happen and applied to the TV programme ‘A Place in the Sun’, before filming started we stumbled upon Areias de Porches and fell in love with the apartment and area instantly. Two years later we took another large step and moved to Portugal permanently. We now live only 10 minutes away and personally manage the apartment ensuring it’s spotlessly clean and maintained to the highest standard. The best part is welcoming guests and seeing your reaction when you arrive and then hearing how much you've enjoyed your holiday and enjoyed staying in our apartment.
Stella Cox purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Stella Cox chose Alporchinhos
We love the area because of its perfect location, being close to many beautiful beaches and also close to the countryside. It has a lovely relaxed, laid back feel about it, so is a fantastic place to 'get away from it all' but at the same time you have everything you would want close to hand. The resort, beaches and apartment are very family friendly. There are plenty of restaurants & bars to suit all tastes and budgets within walking distance and the supermarket and shops are all within walking distance too, so it's close enough to everything you need and therefore a car is not essential. Being in central Algarve means it's a great place to be based for access to the rest of the Algarve including the waterparks, shopping centres, golf and much more. It's an ideal location for couples and families and anyone who wants a peaceful and relaxing holiday. The Portuguese town of Armacao de Pera is only a 5 minute drive away.

Great apartment in a lovely area!
A really lovely spacious and clean apartment on a nice complex with everything you could possibly need! Plenty of places to eat and drink close by. 5 mins walk to two lovely beaches or choice of 3 pools on the complex. Would not hesitate to recommend or visit again ourselves!
Thanks for your lovely feedback, we're glad you had a great time and we hope to see you again.

This wonderful apartment is exactly as described and has everything anyone would ever need. We spent 5 nights enjoying the beaches and then the pool in the late afternoon. Couldn’t imagine a better place to stay. Highly recommended!
Fantastic place to stay
We thoroughly enjoyed staying here and the whole experience has been first class
Beautiful well located flat
The flat is kept to the highest standard and has everything that is needed for your stay. The owners are also very helpful.
Perfect immaculate, has everything
We intended to go out more, but it was that perfect we didn’t want to leave the complex. The pool being down a few steps meant we could easily nip and out when we liked, or sit on one of the balconies and enjoy the view. Having uk tv was a plus, really has been a home from home. Care and attention has been paid by the owners to ensure it is well equipped, stylish and immaculate. We hadn’t been to the Algarve for 12 years and this was a perfect base to revisit the area.
Many thanks for your lovely feedback, we're so glad you liked the apartment and enjoyed the views from the balcony.
We hope to welcome you back in the future.
Beautiful apartment, great pools, great location
We had such a lovely stay in the belas vistas apartment. Really lovely, spacious apartment with everything you could need, great pools that we couldn't keep our 6 year old daughter out of and a fab location close to some beautiful beaches, lovely restaurants and not too built-up.
Lovely relaxing feel to the place. Definitely hope to be back some time.
It was great to meet you all and thank you so much for your lovely feedback, we hope to welcome you back to Belas Vistas in the future.
