The space

This two-bedroom apartment is spacious (101m2) and fully equipped. It is an ideal holiday home for two couples or a family. The apartment is set amongst several acres of green and flowery scenery and located 500m from the gorgeous São Rafael beach (recently voted the best in the Algarve and fourth best in Europe). Its clear turquoise waters and white sand, along with the rocks and the cliffs make it a very natural and inviting beach environment. You can enjoy the views from one of the many nearby cliff walks or just chill and taste the freshly caught fish at the locally run beach restaurants.
The apartment is in a private condominium of low rise white painted Portuguese style buildings with terracotta roofs. The complex has a large main swimming pool and separate children’s pool. The apartment sleeps 4 and has one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, each with balconies overlooking the gardens. Spacious lounge with dining area for six people. Big balcony ideal for sunbathing, barbecued meal or just a glass of wine.
Television, DVD player, video library, music library, games (dominos, chess, etc.), books and a pool table are all available in a communal room by the swimming pool.

The flat is nice and basic. Location is great - less than 10 min walk to two beautiful beaches. It's also a very peaceful neighbourhood. The main bed is way too soft, had serious trouble sleeping on it. Didn't get to meet the owners and we were welcomed by a British property ma…

The check-in / out process was seamless. The host was incredibly communicative and helpful and the location was excellent. I didn't find the beds in either room particularly comfortable and didn't sleep great (they were too soft), but overall had a really nice trip.
