  • This was our second stay at Carmen's and it was just as wonderful as the first time, two years ago. Carmen and her father were helpful and made us feel welcome. The house is in a quiet location, close to supermarkets and restaurants. It is comfortable and leaves very little to be desired. Very likely we will be back next year.

  • We have had an excellent week at the Villa. When we booked the communication was clear and Carmen responded very quickly. Throughout the week Carmen was available when needed and gave us some great advice regarding restaurants etc. This is my first booking with Airbnb and I hope that all future trips are this good !

  • Carmen was a wonderful host and very accommodating- she had lots of wonderful suggestions which made the holiday more special. We had a 2year old and 7 year old with us and this villa was perfect for children. It is brilliantly located 15mins from airport and 10mins from beach and 5 mins from some of the best restaurants in the Algarve. Highly recommend staying here.

  • Everything was amazing. Lucky I was to speak Portuguese... but people are very welcoming and they always try to do their best.

    Karelle2015-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect! Carmen is a great host although I couldn't meet her in person, but I met her father to take the keys. If you are looking for a quiet and chill beach, Quarteira is the best place to go!

    Liyana2016-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nice beach apartment close to Faro. We didn't stay long enough to enjoy the neighborhood but were able to take a walk at night on the boardwalk where many of the town's family were out eating churros and having fun. The apartment was very spacious and clean and Carmen's father gave us a warm welcome.

    Herman2014-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was great and looked like the photos. The apartment's location is ideal if you love the beach and there were plenty of restaurants & stores to keep you entertained. Although in the evening I would recommend heading to Vilamoura. It was a great break and I would highly recommend the apartment and Quarteira to travelers.

    Anthony2013-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning apartment in superb location. We couldn't believe how close to the sea we were. We were thrilled to stay in Carmen's place and would go back in a heartbeat xxx

  • Lovely place to stay if visiting vilamoura!

    Aggie2017-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful place - very comfortable and extremely convenient

    Alun2017-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • THE VILLA Beautiful villa, very spacious, there were 9 of us there and we never at any stage felt on top of each other. Very clean overall, great pool and the poker table was a nice fun touch. Pillows were't the best so if possible i would suggest bringing a few of your own if possible or buying locally. Overall, i was astonished by how much better the villa was than i thought it would be and we all loved it. THE POOL Amazing pool, deck chairs provided and a little fence separating the pool from the villa was useful as we had an infant with us, and it took away some concerns about the pool. Deckchairs could have done with a hose down but otherwise amazing LOCATION Great location, during the day all you can hear is the birds, very rural and peaceful. A little bar is about a 3 minute walk away and does nice cheap food. About a 10 minute walk to a Spar which is handy as well. Great Italian place about 10 minute walk away as well. The marina is realistically a 15-20 minute walk but in balmy evenings no one's complaining as it's a fairly pleasant walk. The marina itself has about a dozen pubs, a lot of up market shops and countless restaurants. It can be pricey though and there is nice places in the back streets. For the kids, there's also a McDonald's which is useful. A taxi back to the villa is about 6-7 Euros which is reasonable. OVERALL We had a great stay and would go back. If you want bustling night life, lots to do and a load of bars, this isn't really the place for you. If you want to chill out for a week in the baking sun, with no noise or distractions around, a quiet walk along a beautiful marina and above all else an absolutely gorgeous villa, I'd go with this villa any day of the week. Big thank you once again to our gracious host.

    Ciaran2018-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • This villa was perfect for what we wanted! It was around 15/20 minute walk to the marina which we did daily in the evenings for when we went out for dinner, we did usually Use a taxi to get back as it was a very dark walk but taxi cost was very cheap. The only issue we had was the pool was very cold, too cold to use infact I’m aware that we went out of season and temperature was 26-27 degrees. It didn’t ruin our stay by any means. Would happily recommend to others. Thank you David

    Ashleigh2017-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent communication from start to finish , value and description was great would recommend david and would definitely book again!! Thank you once again !

    Ben2017-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • This villa was perfect for our family of 10. It was ideal space for us. Although the weather was lovely in early April, the pool was still too cold. The walk to marina is 15 mins with endless choice of restaurants. We had a wonderful weekend.

    Aideen2018-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • This villa is amazing for a family holiday or a friends trip to the Villa Moura region. Only 15 minutes walk to the marina the villa has ample space, great facilities and is in a fantastic location. Highly recommend. In addition, David is a brilliant host and responds really quickly to any query.

    Matt2018-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay at a well-located villa in the Vilamoura area. The neighbourhood was lovely and quiet, yet only a 20 minute walk from the marina area of Vilamoura. The host was very quick to respond to a number of questions prior to our stay which was greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Barbara2017-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, right on the beach, near tons of restaurants and shops. Nice spacious balcony with ocean view, well-organized, well-built, and well-kept home.

    Henri2017-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great host, wonderfull flat, amazing view, best recommendations!

    Olga2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Such a spectacular place to stay! Excellent beach front location with all the comforts to make a memorable vacation. The apartment was very clean and easy to access. The balcony was very spacious and offered sunset views. We highly recommend staying here when visiting the Algarve.

    Angie2017-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a gem. We were lucky to have great weather so early in the year and we made good use of the spacious terrace and easy beach access. After a 20min journey from Faro airport we were met on the street outside the apartment which was helpful. The custard tarts waiting inside were just what we needed! The advert does not do the apartment justice, it has ample space for 4, is very homely and very well appointed. We struggled to spot a better located apartment. The added extras like the washing machine, hair dryer and beach items in the apartment were useful and made out stay easier. Comfy beds, super market close by, and great view; What more do you want! Would recommend.

    Debbie2017-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children). The apartment was amazing for us. Very comfortable for us all to sleep. It couldn't have been a better location. It is above a restaurant but 20 meters from the beach. The balcony is a really nice place to sit and watch the sea. The parking was excellent and always had plenty of space. Definitely one of the best airbnb apartments we have stayed in. Thank you!

    Tom2018-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I spent 5 days at T2 Sea Front in Quarteira. Turid was incredibly amazing and thoughtful and helpful in the days leading up our stay and was available to us many times during our stay. which was really great. Her places was exactly what we expected and exactly as advertised. It was actually a lot bigger than we thought and being right on the water was incredible. The location is great if you want to be surrounded by other tourists but not as insane as say Albufeira which is complete madness. There are lots of restaurants/cafes/ice cream shops. The boardwalk is long and full of vendors selling their wares until late at night. The beach is crowded but not insane so that you can't find a spot. I will say that it's a very touristy location so if you're looking for a more authentic Portuguese experience, you might have to venture elsewhere. All in all a really great experience and we're glad to have been able to stay here.

The neighborhood is quiet and relaxing, and only a 15 minute walk to a lot of restaurants and bars, and a 30 minute drive to some of the more touristy areas of the Algarve. Luis was a wonderful host- very responsive and provided good recommendations for dinner. All in all, a great stay!

    Amy2017-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Luis' place was perfect for our short trip to Vilamoura. It was quiet yet only a short walk from the marina and beach area. The studio itself was clean, modern and furnished to a very high standard. Luis was easy to communicate with and flexible with check in time at short notice which was a huge help. I would definitely recommend to friends and family visiting the area. Thanks for having us!

    Oliver2017-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great place near the marina and beach. A good place from where to explore the Algarve. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby for evenings too.

  • A great place in a good location. Closeby to the airport, quiet surroundings, only a few steps away from the beach! The flat feels like a home, it is perfectly equipped and the hosts are lovely. Also the Internet connection works well. Many golf courses, tennis courts around the corner.

    Sandra2012-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • The flat is as nice as pictured in the ad. Joao was a great and helpful host. Everything went just smooth as already described in other reviews. Unfortunately we happened to have the the worst week - weatherwise - in the Algarve - rain was pouring down on every single day except arrival and departure day ... So it was the right decision to choose this appartement, because we had a good place to stay inside. We'll come back in another season with better weather, because ther is so much to see.. Thanks again Joao and your family!

    Joachim2013-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment was great, really close to the beach and a supermarket. It was much bigger than we were expecting which was great and has everything you need. Communication with Joao was great. There are extra amenities in the apartment such as a sun parasol and beach games which we enjoyed. We would recommend this apartment and would stay here again.

    Alice2017-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a great time at Joao's place and a lovely time in Quarteira. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, safe, and in a great location for our beach holiday. Getting to the beach was easy, only a few minutes walk. There is a nice playground across the street which was perfect for our kids. There is a grocery store on the way to (and back from) the beach and this was really convenient as they had everything we needed. The market (on Wednesdays) is also close by. Joao wasn't there when we arrived so we were greeted by his parents who live in the same building. They were very friendly and helpful during our stay. This is, all in all, a very nice place and we can't wait to come back in the future!

    Andrea 2017-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Joao was a fantastic host, we didn't get to meet but he was in contact via email throughout, offering advice on good restaurants in the area. The flat was fantastically appointed, very clean and was really handy for nearby golf courses. I had a great time relaxing on the beach!

    Nathan2012-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • I was so fortunate to find this beautiful apt in Quarteira. Its location is really great, safe place even at night. The apartment is brand new and very, very clean! The living room is very large, the big balcony is the perfect spot for a morning coffee with a nice garden view, the wifi is fast. Great communication with Joao who is very accommodating and friendly, was very helpful and gave me many wonderful tips. I will definitely choose to stay there again for my next Portugal trip. Thank you so much, Joao

    Zuzy2013-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • The listed apartment was very nice (very big terrace), clean and spacious. It is well equipped so if you like you can cook your lunch at home. For us, having a little baby requested small cooking, so we were satisfied with the kitchen. Also, the supermarket located just across the street offers good choices of food (meat, fruits and vegetables). Lidl also is nearby ( 5 min by car). The area is safe and quiet, there is a lot of brand now buildings but the good part is that they are finished so you are not bothered by the construction sites and the area is clean. You have the sentiment that the town was just inaugurated. The beach is very close and can be reached by foot, 5 min walk. Lots of bars and restaurants can be found on the promenade that is kilometers long all the way to Vilamoura Marina. I think the apartment is a good value of money and I can recommend it both for families with kids and young people. Being at the 2nd floor was a bit difficult with the suitcase because there is no elevator but Joao’s dad was kind to help me since there is no elevator. Thanks Joao for having us, great host providing all necessary info’s.

    Loulé, the capital of the district of the same name, is an important rural administrative and active market town with over 20.000 residents. Loulé is an interesting town some 16km to the north of Faro. It is a large town with all the usual amenities you would expect to find - a great selection of shops, numerous banks, art galleries, swimming pools and sports pavilion to name but a few! Its Saturday morning gipsy market attracts tourists from all over the Algarve. The town's landmark is the market hall (Mercado municipal) which re-opened in early 2007 after a long period of renovation. Its architecture has a classic moorish style influence. The annual Carnival in February with its colourful procession around the center of the city is considered one of the best in Portugal. Loulé, in the heart of the Barrocal, is a place noted for its craftwork and a flourishing market town centered on its Moorish-style covered market. Many of the craft traditions of the Algarve are kept alive in Loulé where it is still possible find objects made of copper, iron, wood and brass using techniques forgotten by all but a few, pottery and earthenware, rags and sackcloth. In the shops nestling against the city walls one can still see craftmen at work. With consummate skill they make palm leaf baskets and mats, belts, bags and copper and brass pieces. You can visit the castle walls, originally built by the Moors and reconstructed in the 13th century and which still stand today, together with their masonry towers. Next to the castle is the Chapel of “Nossa Senhora da Conceição” which, belying its architectural simplicity, contains a number of artistic treasures in its interior. Nearby you can visit the Mother Church (Igreja Matriz), a Gothic building dating from the 13th century with a three-nave interior. The bell tower is the converted Moorish minaret. While you are here you can take the opportunity to visit the Municipal Museum with its ethnographic and archaeological collections. In the city center you can visit the Espírito Santo Convent, which houses the Municipal Art Gallery. Leaving the city in the direction of Boliqueime on the EN 270, you can see on your left the Mãe Soberana Shrine on a hilltop overlooking the city, fields and sea. This is a Magnificent 16th century building in the Renaissance style dedicated to Nossa Senhora da Piedade, the patron saint of Loulé. Apart from the historical points of interest, there are also lots of cafés and shops in the criss-crossing network of cobbled alleys and streets and plenty of places to sit in the sunshine and watch the world go by! The main avenue (José da Costa Mealha) is a bustle of cars and people going about their daily business on either side of the central gardens with benches under the trees and kiosks for refreshments along it's length. The town has a local bus network to get around the town with easy. Loulé is about 15 mins driving distance from the stunning Algarvian coast and world golf courses and conveniently just 20 mins from the Airport. Loulé has lots of events on throughout the year: -Carnival - The annual Carnival in February with its colourful procession around the center of the city is considered one of the best in Portugal. 3 days of celebration in February (or occasionally March) of parades, music and dancing, the 3rd day being Shrove Tuesday. The center of Loulé (Avenida José da Costa Mealha) is shut off for the carnival and it costs a few euros for entrance. -'Festival of the Sovereign Mother' – At Easter time there is a religious 'Festival of the Sovereign Mother', patron saint of Loulé, which attracts people from all over the country. Easter Sunday in Loulé marks the beginning of the celebrations 'Feast of the Sovereign Mother', the patron saint of Loulé. The Small Feast (Festa Pequena) takes place on Easter Sunday when the statue of the patron saint is brought down from its sanctuary to the Church of São Francisco, where it will stay until the Festa Grande 2 weeks later. In the morning of the "Big Feast", the statue of the Sovereign Mother leaves in a procession from the Church of São Francisco towards the Engineer Duarte Pacheco Monument, where there is a religious service. In the afternoon, the Eucharist is celebrated at the Church of São Francisco, followed by the procession through the main streets of the city, with the high point being the ascent to the Sanctuary. Several thousand faithful arrive in Loulé for one of the city’s most important religious festivals. Traditionally the day ends with fireworks. -White Night - is a night street party in the city centre decorated in white and where visitors from all over the Algarve come to join in, dressed in white. -Horror Parade - The people of Loulé love to dress-up and not just at carnival time. They also host a Halloween parade at night, where everyone participates in the fun “horror”. -Festival MED - End of June, with lanes and squares in the old part of Loulé decked out in warm colours, this annual event offers a line up of multifaceted experiences in which music takes pride of place. Plastic arts, gastronomy, handicrafts, theatre and street entertainment are also featured at the event. -Festa da Espiga - Festa da Espiga in Salir is a traditional festival on the Feast of Ascension (40 days after Easter). "Espiga" is an arrangement of ears of wheat (or other cereal) to symbolize abundance mixed with poppies, roses, daisies and marigolds to symbolize the beauty of the countryside and an olive branch for peace and hung inside of the house where it will stay until changed for a "new" espiga the following year. Folkgroups, a parade, music, local delicacies and fun for all the family make a special celebration.
  • My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Veronica's beautiful (and yes, lovely) little home in Loule. This was our first time using Airbnb and also our first trip to the Algarve. Our expectations were exceeded on both counts. Veronica is a wonderful host and has created an incredible oasis in the midst of a beautiful town. We appreciated all of the amenities in her home, and especially the cold outdoor shower during the 36C weather we had for several days. Staying in Loule also proved to be an excellent choice. Instead of staying at the resort towns along the ocean ($$$) we decided to rent a car and visit along the entire Algarve region, from Sagres to Tavira. For us, this was the right choice, and we'd recommend Loule as the ideally located "base camp" to explore the entire region. Thanks for a wonderful stay, Veronica!

    Drew2016-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Veronica was an excellent host, there were problems with the internet and TV because of heavy rain, she had people on it right away. The house was perfect for us and would highly recommend it. Pictures were exact, house was clean and I cannot emphasize enough how prompt she was to answer any guestion. Great location, good food nearby and plenty to see. Would stay again.

    Marilyn2016-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the apartment for one week and we really liked it. It has everything you need and we really loved the interior. Everything is arranged with so much love. We stayed there with our five months old daughter and Veronica even bought a baby bed. Thank you again for that! Veronica welcomed us with a basket filled with wine, crackers and jam. There was also coffee for the Nespresso machine, butter and things to cook like oil, salt, etc. We would definitely stay there again.

    Anna2015-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • We have been using airbnb for a long time now and it would have to be the best experience so far! Veronica herself is a great host, she's full of knowledge about the area and Loule which is a quaint little town away from the tourist trail but close enough to explore the amazing coast of Algavre. The house is a great example of design flair and you will not find a better place to stay! THANK YOU Veronica!

    Peter2017-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • As a first time user of Airbnb I couldn't be happier with my choice. The house is exactly like the photos show, a mixture of rustic and modern, if you appreciate house renovations you'll find this one superb. Everything is comfortable, from the bed, to the (large) shower, to the sofa. The hosts were very nice and welcoming, the kitchen is stocked with some basics like butter, olive oil, vinegar, etc, and it has all the utensils and appliances you can think of. Also, there's a hair-dryer in the bathroom! (I've been to hotels that didn't have one, so nice touch) The location is very good, you really are in the center and you'll have plenty of stores, cafes, and public transport within minutes. I'll definitely book again if I ever need to go to Loulé.

    Isabel2015-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place , well described , all as per photos

    Jean-Michel2015-05-17T00:00:00Z

    Laurence2018-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was very close to the beach and extremely clean. Miguel and his dad were really accomodating. It was a great little apartment for my family and I we will be visiting again.

    Lila2017-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great host, everything went smoothly! Great appartment and loved the location! He left travelguides and magazines etc to help us really enjoy our stay, which we did! Would definitely stay there again! Thank you!!

    André2017-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in the Quarteira flat for 6 days and it was perfect!!! Miguel was out of the city when we arrived but his parents greeted us and helped us settle in, such lovely parents!! They showed us around the flat and even had essentials ready for us - fruit, milk, tea and coffee. The location of the flat was great, literally round the corner from the beach. It was clean, comfortable and perfect for what we wanted it for. The flat was equipped with everything you needed for a holiday, even beach towels. Miguel was very helpful in providing information of places to visit and see, was very helpful and interested in our well being whilst we were there. Overall, we cannot thank Miguel and his parents enough for being such perfect hosts!! We will be back soon! :)

    Pritam2015-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice apartment! Very close to the beach! Really enjoyable holiday!

    Stephen2018-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location! I would say less then 100metres to the beach. Our flight was delayed so arrived very late and Humberto, Miguel’s father was there to welcome us with so much information about local area. He even advised us picking up the train to Porto from Loule one stop after Faro which saved us time in the morning. Overall we had a wonderful stay. Sadly it was a bit cold when we were there but plenty of blankets and extra pillows to stay cosy.

    Zahra2018-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • Miguel's place was beyond our expectations - super clean, very well situated, and adorable. We LOVED walking on the beach every day. Do yourself a favour and book this place!!! :-)). Thanks Miguel!!

    Mareli2016-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is bright and airy. It really is located very very close to the beach. Miguel and his father were very welcoming and there to help if needed. The apartment is clean and comfy, with everything you need for a stay. Lots of great places to eat a short walk away and the super market almost on your door step. We would not hesitate to stay there again!

    This is a comfortable apartment in a quiet location, with swimming pool. The location include a beach bar within footsteps of the property. As well as the superb location you also have the rare opportunity to fall asleep to the sound of the sea.
  • Me, my wife and our two kids stayed in Miguel's apartment. Everyone enjoyed it - it was brilliant. The location was good and the flat has everything you would need for comfortable stay. Also Miguel kindly provided information about Quarteira and places to visit. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Zmicer2015-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Miguel's hospitality is outstanding, the apartment is spacious and clean and the view and sounds of the ocean are calming. I can highly recommend staying at Miguel's!

    Peter2018-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location, close to everything but private and quiet. Beautiful beach right outside the door. Fabulous. Would return and rent here again in a heart beat. Loved it.

    Deborah2017-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • The views from Miguel's apartment were simply spectacular! We awoke each morning to a view of the surf from bed! Also, we had a terrific welcome - we were treated to lots of local tips for restaurants and sights to see. The apartment is right on the Promenade and beach, so there is TONS to see, eat, and explore. The apartment was sparkling clean, and communications very clear and quick. I would highly recommend Miguel as a host!

    Kyly2018-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Miguel's apartment was very clean, comfortable and in a lovely location on the beach. Miguel met us at the apartment and was very friendly, informative and helpful. We would highly recommend his apartment to any of our family and friends.

    Ally2017-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • It was an absolute delight to say at Miguel's apartment. A beautiful view of the ocean, an excellent welcome and sparkling clean. Miguel even organised airport pick up for us. We would love to go back!

    Imogen2018-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great flat! Amazing view ! Such a delight to woke up with the sound of the waves! The flat was really clean and spacious, good mattresses (an important detail). We even had a welcome pack with a special note for us. Miguel’s dad was there to welcome us and gave us great advices on towns and markets to visit. Would definitely recommend and I hope to go back there soon!!

    Our home is a 3 bedroom townhouse villa, located in the exclusive Old Village in Vilamoura, Portugal. It’s centrally located with panoramic views to the sea and the distant hills. The fully equipped villa is air-conditioned throughout, with a roof terrace and 2 balconies, free wifi and a 43" LED HD TV The location is superb. Walk to the Marina in 10 minutes, or the beach in 15 - or less than 5 minutes by car - and you have all the shops, bars & restaurants of the Old Village on your doorstep!
    The property is arranged over 2 floors with a rooftop terrace. As you enter on the ground floor you have the kitchen to your right, which is separated by a breakfast bar from the large open plan living and dining area. This leads out to a balcony with chairs. There is a WC on this level. There is a 43" LED HD TV with over 100 channels, including all Sky Sports and BT Sport channels Going upstairs you have a master bedroom suite, two twin rooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom suite has a full ensuite bathroom and a walk-in closet. The family bathroom has a full bath and shower. The two twin rooms have large fitted wardrobes. Both rooms have full height french doors leading out to small balcony. The next flight of stairs leads up to the roof terrace. This covers almost all the footprint of the house so is a good size. It has an outdoor table and chairs with sun umbrella and 2 x sun loungers. There are 360 degrees views from roof terrace across Vilamoura to the sea, the Pinhal golf course and the hills in the distance. The property is air conditioned throughout.
    The Old Village is a complex of villas, apartments, restaurants, cafes and bars built by Count Hugh de Meyer. The village was inspired in part by Portmeirion in Wales and Port Grimaud in France. It’s gardens are immaculately kept, with pedestrian only cobbled streets and a village square, all surrounded by buildings built in a neo-classical Portuguese colonial style. It’s quiet, safe and very pretty! The Old Village is ideally located in Vilamoura. It’s an easy 10-15 minute walk to the marina, and another 5-10 minute walk to either of the town’s beaches. The popular tourist train that circulates Vilamoura has a stop just outside the house- it’s a convienient way to access all the main areas of the town. Golf is also on the doorstep. The Old Village actually sits in the middle of the Pinhal Golf Course, and the clubhouse is just a 5 minute drive. Vilamoura’s other famous courses – Victoria, The Old Course, Millenium, Laguna & Vila Sol are just a few minutes further drive away. Transfers are available from the onsite Old Village transport company
  • Extremely large, spacious, classically decorated clean space. This home is in the middle of a private resort community called “The Old Village” with its own bars and restaurants, and is a 10-minute drive from the Vilamoura marina. Thank you to the hosts for accommodating our night time arrival time!

    Kat2018-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Old Village is charming - a immaculately kept district and quite unique in the area. We stayed out of season so there were very few people around - apparently it can be very busy in summer. Johnny’s apartment is delightful - complete with roof top private sun lounging if you’re there in season! Fabulous spot altogether and totally recommend it.

    Freya2018-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Well kept apartment in the Old Village, short walk to marina and great local amenities. Enjoyed the rooftop terrace. Would highly recommend for work conference trip or family holiday.

    Charles2018-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • The place is well maintained and spacious. We stayed in off season so the area was quiet and being located above the restaurant was not an issue. There was construction noise from the unit next door being renovated but hopefully this is a short term issue. Would recommend this owner/place to others

    Andy2018-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Jonny's place was clean, spacious, well appointed and tremendous value. Off season pricing was very attractive, and this place delivered (I can just imagine how positively vibrant the Old Village location is during "prime time"). Great HD TV cable service & high speed internet. The overall resort architecture, layout and grounds-keeping was exceptional. The check-in process was easy, and the on-going attention of the Property Manager and the Owner was commendable. Although most of the on-site restaurants were not open during our stay - due to the off-season timing of our visit - we ate at "Le Rendez Vous" French restaurant twice and had two fantastic dinners. Highly recommended. Easy (and safe) walk from the Old Village to the harbour, even in the evenings (dark). Look forward to returning to this place in the more active time of year! Thanks again for a great visit!

    Chantal2018-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • The house is just like the photos :) Great for a group of friends or familiy! You Will adore Vilamoura and this village

    Joana2018-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Jonny’s place was absolutely perfect for our little weekend getaway this February. The location was perfect for us being a reasonable Uber away from the airport and within walking distance of a decent sized supermarket. When we arrived we were blown away by how immaculate and stylish the apartment was. The living area was light and spacious and the roof terrace was our favourite feature, perfect for breakfast in the sun! The kitchen was well stocked with crockery and even had a filter coffee maker. When it came to going out and about the nightlife and restaurants of Villamoura were an easy walk away and provided a range of different experiences. The clean and sandy beach was only another 5 minute walk from the marina. As we went in February there wasn’t a lot going on in the Old Village itself but I can imagine it being brilliant in the high season. Overall the accommodation was everything we wanted it to be and more!

    Ellie2018-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place in the Algarve to stay for a vacation. It’s on a complex which means there are plenty of things to do close by. There were some issues with our check in, which we didn’t have very much communication over, and also there was a lack of some of the amenities usually provided at Airbnb’s (coffee/washing up liquid/bin bags etc). A shame because these small added touches would have really improved the experience

Very well equipped, close proximity to restaurants, supermarket and most importantly the beach. The studio is located in a very calm complex, near the marina of Vilamoura where you can find the big hotels, cocktail bars etc. We sent our request at short notice (same day in the morning) and Jorge answered very quickly. He was always abavailable for our questions and we appreciated the good contact! We highly recommend this place!

    Алексей2018-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Jorge was extremely friendly and helpful. Provided baby cot for us and kindly thought to leave baby towel etc. Apartment building looks dated but inside is fitted out nicely. Balcony has closed windows so safe for little ones and nice to watch sunset but outlook not very exciting. 5 mins walk to marina, 15 mins to beach, we used local 'Chico' restaurant pool which was very quiet, clean and friendly. Would recommend a stay here and would stay again.

    Jenny2017-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was perfect. It was a ten minute stroll to the marina and beach, as well as bars and restaurants. The apartment had everything we needed and was nicely decorated and comfortable. They even left coffee pods for the espresso machine. Really enjoyed our stay and they were so helpful. Would definitely recommend it

    Evelyn2017-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is in a perfect location only a five minute walk from the Marina and a ten minute walk from the beach. The apartment was extremely clean and modern and the balcony is an added bonus! Jorge was a great host and I would highly recommend the apartment for a stay in Vilamoura.

    Tessa2017-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • The Apartment was perfect! We had a wonderful time at this place! It was a very clean flat with new and modern furnishings. All we needed was there and Jorge was a very kind and helpful host. The supermarket is 1 minute away. We would come back to this place any time!

    Nina2015-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment, very clean and exactly like it's shown in the pictures. The beach is in walking distance and a supermarkt is right around the corner. Jorge was very friendly and explained everything. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this apartment. Thanks!!

Breakfast lovingly prepared from the garden or locally produced ingredients (breakfast included from June untill end of September/ in supplement from October untill the end of may : 6 euros/pers/day).

There is a large spacious double bedroom with en suite bath/shower and a kitchenette equipped with fridge freezer, twin hob, kettle, juicer and utensils for the preparation of light meals.

We pride ourselves on our hearty breakfast which is included from June untill the end of September and served on the main terrace.

A short car ride to a variety of idyllic, beautiful clean beaches is the icing on the cake...!
  • We were welcomed by Laura, Davide and two lovely dogs. Davide showed us around the colourful garden (where they grow their own oranges, lemons, tomatoes, salads and other fruits and vegetables). Everything was exactly like the pictures on the website. The rooms are clean and decorated tastefully. Our two kids loved the pool and where delighted to find a table tennis table, dart board and pool table as well. We had a nice breakfast every morning with fresh fruit, orange juice, eggs and yummy croissants. We stayed for a week to explore nearby beaches and places. We had a lovely time and Davide and Laura where very relaxed and helpful. Our son was very sad to leave Boo-Boo the small dog...

    Nadine2018-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, I don't know where to begin! We had SUCH a fantastic time. The house and location is beautiful. David and Aud are lovely, such calm, kind and welcoming hosts. The dogs are just gorgeously friendly and sweet. I did yoga every morning which was heavenly and David was the perfect teacher. Supportive, very fun and knowledgeable. We each had treatments and have come away feeling really excited about starting a new healthier lifestyle. We stayed in August so it was pretty hot. Probably too hot for our 11 month old baby if I'm honest but David was really helpful and gave us a second fan for the room which definitely helped. Can't wait to go back! It was just wonderful!

  • If you like peace and quiet, an outstanding host, beautiful surroundings and spacious roomy place to stay, and a fresh healthy breakfast then this is the place for you. Our only regret is we didn't have long enough time to soak it all up. This was our last place on our way back to the airport and now wish that we had stayed longer! The description and photos are accurate. Thank you David.

  • I would wholeheartedly recommend staying with David and Aude if you want a restful stay in a scenic retreat in the Algarve with delicious food. Breakfast everyday was superb. The kitchenette very clean and well equipped. I asked to be taken into town once a day and this was accommodated. If you wanted to be in and out of Loule multiple times a day I would argue that this isn't the best choice for you unless you are happy to pay for the taxis. The scenery is lovely, I enjoyed runs in the area. The local dogs bark at you horribly but that's out of their control! The water isn't super hot but you can supplement with a kettle. There were no appliance issues. So all in all very happy memories of my stay and the area in general. Juliet.

  • We had a magical week staying with David and Aude. Wonderful views of the Algarve from our private balcony (Website hidden by Airbnb) The house is rustic and very pretty and David and Aude are incredibly generous hosts. Breakfasts were delicious - clearly made with much love and care and always using very high quality ingredients. A wonderful escape from the business of the Algarve in which to rest and rejuvenate.

  • We had a wonderful stay. Amazing views and it was a real treat to have the almond trees in bloom. Fantastic breakfasts everyday in an idyllic setting. Great hosts who really made our stay. We enjoyed the town of Loulè and it's Saturday famers market. Thank you very much David and Aud for a lovely stay.

    Imogen2018-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Overall, we had a great time staying at the unique Garden of Eden Hilltop Retreat. The location near Loule was excellent for our 3.5 day exploration of the Algarve region. The pool was refreshing and right outside our door. There are many places around the property to sit and relax, especially the treehouse in the carob tree. The place was tidy with a good bathroom, fridge and hot plate, which we used a couple of times. Davide was an attentive host and happy to answer and array of inquiries. We could not get enough of the freshly squeezed orange juice or cracking the almonds. I'd suggest that guests who are animal lovers would appreciate the cute dogs and cats. The cats could be a nuisance checking for crumbs in the unit. The bed was adequate. We had a hard time finding the place and would suggest Davide post additional signage as to not confuse with the next door Casa.

We loved to have breakfast on the balcony in the morning and to chill and watch the sea and the small fish port of Quarteira in the evening. The appartment was super clean and tidy. The bathroom has a really nice and spacious shower. One open space with kitchen and dining table, sofa and TV and bed with sea view. Supermarket and bakery next to the appartment was very convenient. We really enjoyed it. Thank you

    Its a quiet, sunny and with nice people neighborhood.
  • Even before I write about the apartment, I must mention what amazing hosts Marta and her family are! Right from my initial enquiries to the day we left, they have been so hospitable and kind which made us feel really welcome in their home. The Christmas touches and gifts and excellent communication were a few of the many attributes of this family so even if the place was not good( which is not the case!), they would still win you over! The apartment is well maintained, so clean and was really spacious for us with great mirrors and well lit. It's easy to walk down to the bus station to make trips to areas like Albufeira or Faro. You can stroll to the beach in less than 10 minutes and even walk to Villamoura, the luxury marina! You can even catch a Hoppa bus from the airport to a hotel near the apartment and walk from there straight to Marta's place. Shops and bars are all at walking distances and we loved the area as it was safe and a pleasure to walk around there! Most of all,the family is lovely! Marta, you are such a positive person and an inspiration and both of us really appreciated your kindness and little gestures!

    Pamela2017-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for 2 nights in Marta's lovely and spacious 1 bedroom, fully fitted flat, which is modern, clean, and airy - and only about a ten min walk to the beach (if that)! The flat is within walking distance to great restaurants, snack bars, and supermarkets, for those who wish to eat at the flat. Although we didn't meet Marta during our stay, she made sure to let us know that she would be available by phone for anything we needed and she arranged for her mum to meet us with the keys and show us the flat. Overall: great experience, highly recommendable. Tips for visitors: Sicilian food/pizza: Isola Bella Portuguese food: Restaurante Rei Do Churrasco If you decide to cook at the flat, buy everything needed, incl. basics, like oil, salt and pepper. Enjoy!

    Marie2017-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Marta for the great support during our vacation. The apartment is beautiful, modern and very new. Everything is available. On foot you can reach the beach in 8 minutes. There is also a supermarket around the corner. Thank you again and best wishes!

    Kevin2018-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • It is a nice, clean place, close to the beach and shops and restaurants (7min walk). Loved the quick response. It is good value for the money. Marta was great host.

    Sophie2018-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very flexible on check in time. The apartment is in a perfect location, minutes walk from the beach, local restaurants, supermarket and public transport. Interior is exceptionally clean, modern and well equipt making it a very homely stay. Marta was such a pleasant host and ensured we had everything we needed. Very kind helpful family with a lovely cafe just a minutes walk from the apartment, that serves the best coffee we had on the Algarve. Will definitely recommend a stay to family and friends visiting the Algarve.

    Lynn2016-12-21T00:00:00Z

  • Excellent all round. Lovely villa and fantastic garden/pool. The location is also spot on - a 5 minute walk to the Old Village and a gentle 30 minute stroll to the Marina. The bikes provided allow you to explore a bit further afield too.

    Richard2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great villa in a fantastic location. The villa has everything you need and even some extras such as bikes and tennis rackets. Armindo was very helpful throughout the stay.

    Darragh2017-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Armindo was the perfect host. The house and locations was wonderful with two small children and family. We enjoyed the time away and I would definitely recommend the house to friends and family. Armindo was prompt and helpful before and during our trip. Thank you for hosting us!

    Raj2016-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is an outstanding villa, beautiful and larger than expected. 3 of the double bedrooms all have en-suites which is maybe not clear from the description. The pool is also closer to the villa than it seems in the picture, which is better. The villa is very well equipped, there were pool inflatables for use stored in the outside toilet and the bikes were a really nice touch. Armindo was an excellent host, replying to any messages quickly both before and during our stay and provided lots of useful local information and suggestions. We had an amazing stay and would highly recommend this lovely villa and lovely area of Portugal.

    Caroline2018-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • We have just spent 11 nights at the villa and we couldn’t fault our stay. The villa was lovely, spacious, well equipped and very clean. We spent most of the holiday in the outside living space having bbq’s most nights. The pool was lovely and there is an outside toilet and shower which came in very handy. There are bikes available which we used quite a bit to cycle down to the marina. A 5 minute walk away are some lovely restaurants, a couple of bars and a small supermarket. There is also a land train that runs every hour and goes to the marina and beaches. The host could not have been more helpful. Any questions we had he answered quickly and efficiently. We had our 6 year old nephew with us who loves to go out on a bike ride. The villa only had adult bikes. When we mentioned this to Armindo to our surprise he arranged to have a child’s bike delivered the next day to the villa. We all can’t fault the villa and Armindo was a fantastic host and couldn’t do enough for us. We will definitely be visiting again.

    Jeff2018-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic villa perfect for large groups. I stayed with 6 other friends and we couldn't be happier with our experience. Armindo was very attentive and kept in contact throughout our trip to and from the villa. Perfect host and villa... definitely would stay again

    Marc2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic villa. Beautiful property and garden. Really good location and the place has everything you need. Armindo was a great host. We will definitely be back.

    Kain2017-05-03T00:00:00Z

  • What a fabulous apartment Cristine, so bright and airy, loved the 2 balconies so we could chase the sun. Location was ideal for everything, shops, bars, cafe's, bus station right across the road, so ideal for exploring. Thank you for the extra blankets in the wardrobe, nights were quite chilly, but then what can you expect in March! Thank you for allowing me to have 2 guests stay over for a couple of nights, was a lovely treat seeing my daughter who lives in Toronto but was staying in Lisbon for a few months. Your dad was a true gent, even brought us oranges from his own trees. Sorry we never got to meet you.

    Lyndsay2018-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • My parents loved their stay at the apartment in Quarteira. The location was perfect, it was close to everything including shops, pubs, beach and public transport. The apartment was very clean, super comfortable and good size. Christine's father was very accommodating and friendly. Check in and check out were easy. The only issue was that only 1 door key was provided and there were 4 adults (2 couples) so it would have been useful to have 2 sets of keys so that people could have the flexibility to go in and out of the flat independently. Overall, excellent stay. Thank you!

    Vera2017-07-03T00:00:00Z

    Jasmin2016-10-19T00:00:00Z

    Katarzyna2017-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • Christine’s apartment is a great place to stay in the Algarve. Christine was very responsive to our questions before our stay. Her father, Manuel, met us with the keys right on time after we had to call and reschedule because we were delayed driving down from Lisboa. He had some good local suggestions for us and was very welcoming and kind. The apartment is just as it is described in the listing and pictures. It is truly a one minute walk to the beach and there are restaurants, shops, cafes and nightlife nearby. I would say that it works best for a couple as it is a 1 bedroom. Five stars!

    Tim2018-05-27T00:00:00Z

    Renato2017-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really nice vacation at Ana’s. She was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived (our flight landed late) and gave us a quick tour and 2 sets of keys. The apartment/condo is right on the boardwalk which was pretty crowded until about 12 at night when everyone magically went home. There wasn’t much disturbance except for some partyers one night.. It was nice to wake up to a lovely view of the beach every day and there are plenty of places to eat and drink nearby and an Intermarché to buy groceries around the corner. The kitchen was well equipt but strange that there are no cereal bowls, only dishes that were deep enough.. sort of.. and no dishwasher detergent.. The coffee machine was old but worked perfectly. The couch bed is old and uncomfortable but our overall stay was cozy and nice. Ana responds immediately to any questions you may have.

    Lisa2018-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • We spend 8 days in Ana’s apartment in May 2017. We arrived to the apartment at 23:00 (PM) from Faro airport. Ana was waiting as at an entrance, she showed us an apartment and gave us 2(two !!) sets of keys. The apartment was spotless, it has everything you need. There is big bedroom with comfortable tween bed, big storage place. There is a sofa in a living room which can be used as a second bed. We did not use it. Kitchen is equipped very well, there are refrigerator and separate freezer. Big balcony is facing a sea beach. We had a breakfast and a dinner on the balcony. The apartment is on second floor with 2 elevators, there is intercom in the building, it is 3 min from decent supermarket and 6-7 min by foot from fish market and farmers market. We enjoyed this place very much and recommend it for a holydays.

    Albert2017-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Ana's apartment was exactly as shown in the photos, it was clean, bright and very comfortable. It was very accessible to all the local pubs and restaurants and directly across the road from the beach. Our flight got in early and Ana was very accommodating by letting us drop our bags as soon as her previous guests were gone. She was also very quick to respond to any queries we had with regards to our stay. Thank you Ana.

    Mary2017-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Unit very clean and beautiful outlook over ocean. Communication good. Two single beds pushed together to form double. Very few staples items provided so be prepared to take/buy own. Good value apartment in quiet location.

    Craig2017-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Ana’s apartment was perfect, the location is great. The views from the apartment are spectacular and Ana was a great host.

    Kathy2017-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Ana's place is a perfect 'people watching' location. Everything you need is within easy reach on foot. The Dutch restaurant immediately downstairs from the apartment is good, and reasonable. Say hi to Tatiana there. Lovely and friendly. Then straight across the road to a wonderful sandy beach. We had a lovely relaxing holiday.

Praia Falesia är din närmaste vidsträckta vackra strand. Quarteira är mer en mindre portugisisk stad med samma utbud som Vilamoura. Strandpromenaden är vacker och själva stranden direkt i anslutning till promenadgatan
  • Kinga's apartment is the best place that we have rented. Location is perfect. The apartment is well decorated. The hospitality is fantastic. We recommend that Kinga's place will be a great accommodation of your trip.

  • We had a truly great stay! The apartment has a splendid location, a couple of min walk to the marina, that is full of nice restaurants and bars. Long and beautiful beaches is also just a few hundred metres away. The apartment itself is in great shape, just as on the pictures! Modern, clean and well organised. Well equipped kitchen with all you need. Last but not least, also to highlight the fantastic support and hospitality from the host. Flexible, friendly and welcoming and with fast communication. In total, a true 5-star place in my opinion!

    Björn2018-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay here. It's a very stylish flat in a great location and perfect for 3-4 people. We wished we could stay here longer! Kinga made the check-in and check-out very easy for us and was very helpful. Thank you so much, we hope to visit again!

  • 5 stars. Kinga was always quite friendly and collaborative both before check-in and during our stay. She gave us flexibility in checkout which was great. Regarding apartment is just what the photos show! Spacious, new, modern, beautiful. If you like the photos you will love the apartment. Location good, only few minutes walking to Marina. Highly recommended! :)

    Sérgio2018-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Amzing penthouse appartment very close to the marina. Very clean and easy to find with off road parking. Would very much recommend for anyone wanting to stay close to the marina in Villmora. Set back far enough that you are not kept awake from the music but close enough the you can visit all the sights in the marina and enjoy the many bars. Hosts are very helpful and a pleasure to commicate with.

    Nicholas2018-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Appartement design très bien décoré et agencé. Rénové tout récemment et très propre. 2 balcons sympas pour prendre les repas, salle de bains magnifique, air conditionné dans toutes les pièces...Situation vraiment proche de la marina, ce qui peut occasionner un peu de bruit en haute saison venant des restaurants. En cette période de l'année, nous n'avons pas été dérangés. Kinga a été très réactive dans les échanges et nous avons été accueillis chaleureusement par Ana Maria. Merci à toutes les 2 !

    My name is Paul, I have a spare apartment which I rent when not in use with my friends and family. You will feel right at home with its wooden beam, all wood furniture, comfy couch, fully equipped kitchen. Flat screen TV with English channels, high-speed fiber internet with wireless makes this apartment feel connected. Gardens and BBQ area are shared Hot water and electricity provided by solar panels makes this one of the most eco friendly accommodations available in all of the Algarve.
    I have a make to fold away single bed that can be used if there is one more person, it is not the comfiest but would do if you are needing to sleep an extra person
  • It was very good! The apartment is so pretty and cute with a sunny terrace! Paul is very cool. Just one thing, in the morning, we woke up with roosters and dogs.. but it's charming!

    Benjamin2018-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Paul is a very kind host with lots of tips for your journey in Portugal. The flat was also very nice with a lot of space for two persons. Highly recommended stay:)

    Saskia2018-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • Good place to stay. Paul is very friendly and will provide you with tips for trips around Faro

    Vays2018-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Paul’s place is clean and very close to the airport. Great place for anyone’s first stay. We had a great time and Paul was a lovely host.

    Susanne2018-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and quiet apartment with inside terrace. 5-7 minutes drive to the center of Faro. Food stores, cafes and restaurants nearby.

    Ants2018-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Having a car would be an advantage although there is an regular bus service which takes you to and from Faro. The general area is industrial but does have a couple of good supermarkets as well as a few good restaurants and a cafe which makes the most delicious sandwiches. Paul is a very good and attentive host and always readily available if required. His passion for the environment is endearing and he is very happy to share his innovative ideas and to demonstrate the simple ideas he has developed to lesson the carbon footprints. He has a great little apartment to use as a base for travelling around the area.

    Pat2018-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Its a fine appartment nearby the airport, so it's nice for one or two nights!

Amenities: - Airport within 20 km - Restaurant/Coffee Shop/Bakery/Pub within 100 meters - Supermarket within 200 meters - Bus Stop within 30 meters
  • Ricardo was a wonderful host, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The apartment is perfectly located. The beach is a stones throw away; really pleasant area and very clean for a public beach! The swimming pool was a delight and it was rare to see other guests using the facilities. The apartment itself was clean, ideally situated and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. Ricardo really did go above and beyond. He was so kind and even drove us to the airport on the last night. Very much appreciated. Thanks for a lovely holiday Ricardo.

    Sophie2017-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is perfection! It’s only a block from the beach, there’s restaurants & cafes nearby. The patio is perfect - we sat out there with wine every night! We went and grabbed a few things on the first night. The hours for nearby restaurants were a little unpredictable but luckily there is a ton to choose from. Ricardo connected us with Alberto for a ride to and from the apartment. It was seamless and easy. Ricardo met us and showed us the apartment and gave us all the instructions & tips which was great. We had a super relaxing stay and can’t wait to return!! I would definitely recommend this place for your visit!

    Jasmine2018-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Ricardo is an excellent and helpful host! totally recommended! the appartement is very beautiful, the terrasse magnifique and the beach is only 150m from the appartement :-)

    Gerardo2018-09-23T00:00:00Z

    Kasia2017-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • A really nice flat with great location and the best host you will find anywhere!

    Morten2018-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Richardo is just a fantastic host. He went out of his way to deliver a suitcase that was accidentally locked in the apartment... he drove it all the way to the airport for us! The apartment itself is also very spacious and comfortable. In summer, I can imagine it's a nice cool retreat from all of the heat and sun!

    Amanda2018-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Ricardo is a great, caring host! He reacted fast and answered every question. The apartment is spacious, nice, with a great view and perfectly situated.

    Marina2018-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived early in Faro and Ricardo allowed us to enter the apartment before check-in time, 8 am and he was there waiting for us. Friendly, attentive and always willing to provide us as much information as possible for the property as well as for useful places in the city. The property is well located on the main avenue of Quarteira with several bars and cafes and also a few meters from the beach. The property located on the 8th floor offers a beautiful view; a part of the balcony and the suite's window, one can see the beach. The apartment is spacious and comfortable, the kitchen has all the necessary utensils, beds are comfortable and the clothes are new, large living room with cable TV and comfortable sofas provide relax after a tired day! Unfortunately the weather, still a little cold, did not allow us to use the beautiful pool , because the water was then very cold. Anyway, it was a great experience, the children felt "at home" wife felt comfortable and I came back home with that felling of having given my family an unforgettable time in Algarve! Next time we go to quarteira we will certainly look again for this Apartament!

    Quiet neighbourhood
  • I went with a group of friends and we had the most perfect week. The house is very beautiful and much bigger than it seems on the pictures ! Also, the location is great and very quiet, but at the same time not too far from bigger cities (I would recommend car rental though). Tiago is a very good host and avalaible immediatly for every request you might have. I recommend 100% and would certainly come again !

    Thomas2017-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Superbly equipped villa. BBQ and wood fire great to cook on. Very clean villa with good size rooms, lovely bedding and towels. Tiago's Mum lives up above in fiat, but is extremely respectful of your privacy. Fresh eggs and garden produce were very welcome and made us feel like home. There are a couple of very friendly dogs (owned by family nearby), that come about. We had no problem with them , Spike and Simba are their names. There are also chickens and ducks at bottom of garden, fully enclosed. If you are using kat and long coordinates to find the house they will take you right up to the house before this one. When you see the two white villas on your right keep going round to the left and you will arrive at the house. Enjoy..we did!!

    Agi2017-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Tiago's place is absolutely stunning in a beautiful location. We had everything we needed and the villa was immaculate! We were a group of 7 adults and it was very spacious for all of us too. We got Uber Taxi's to Faro, Olhao and Airport as we didn't want to rent a car - these were very cheap and always nearby. Tiago was also around at the time, staying with his mother in the aforementioned flat above the villa. they were both very attentive when we needed them but did not disturb us whilst we were there. My only negative comment, that I feel I need to mention, is about the immediate area of Santa Barbara and the road up to the villa, despite it's tranquility and beauty there does seem to be a problem with stray/loose dogs. It is only a short walk up to the little village of Santa Barbara, just 15 mins, but on more than one occasion we had groups of dogs following us and being aggressive towards us when we were just nipping to the shop. So despite the taxi's being pretty good, I would recommend you hire a car, just so that you don't have to encounter the dogs on that walk. There were also dogs wondering around other places we visited, so I don't think it's specific to that one place, I would say simply be cautious with any dogs you meet.

    Caitlin2018-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic place to stay if you are looking for a nice, quiet and spacious house for a relaxing trip to Faro. The house is a little far away from the city but that is what makes for a great relaxing trip as it is nice a secluded with a great view. The pool is really nice and when the sun is out it is outstanding for soaking in the sun. Everything in terms of what you need for a comfortable stay is provided and you will not be disappointed. Tiago is very responsive and will reply to your messages very quickly. Make sure to keep in contact with him if you become lost trying to find the house. It is a little tricky to find as there are some smaller roads to follow than other cities.

    Sebastian2017-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • Altogether a wonderful stay.. great accommodation which was very well equipped. Tiago was extremely helpful beforehand with our questions, and Luisa his mother was very kind and helpful also. (Incidentally, we were quite taken aback as we had imagined someone much older!) Luisa was contactable for any problems, and was around cleaning the pool early in the morning every day when we were asleep. She was very respectful of our privacy. We had some lovely meals out at a couple of restaurants in the village which were within walking distance. We came with our family and their partners, including our son who is in a wheelchair. The accommodation was very accessible with level access throughout (apart from one bedroom). However it is probably important to note that the doorways to the bathrooms were not wide enough to take his wheelchair, so really only suitable for those who can walk at least a little. Luckily we had some strong members of our party! (and a son who didn't mind a certain lack of privacy!) It was a great base to drive to other places - there is a lot to see - but nowhere was quite as relaxing as being at the lovely pool in the heat that we had! The electric blinds were extremely effective at night - and the beds very comfortable. The showers were great too, and the air conditioning in almost every room was such a blessing. The poolside hammock that appeared towards the end of our stay was also much appreciated. We became great friends with the visiting family dogs and will miss them! All in all, it was the perfect place to to really relax with all the family.

    Wendy2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • The Windmill house is a great find in Portugal. Very quiet area, wonderful pool, and a great little restaurant just up the street. Tiago and his mum are wonderful hosts, and will answer anything you ask. It is well worth a trip to Portugal just to stay there!

    Beth2017-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Tiago's villa is perfect for a large family like ours, with children ranging from 11 to 19. There is plenty of room, and the way the bedroom doors open out onto the pool is just lovely, especially to wake up to. There is plenty of space around the pool, the hammock a real favourite. Everyone could relax. The villa allows lovely views of sunrise and sunset. We especially enjoyed the location being so easy to visit Faro, Loule and Albufeira. We were so pleased to have been in Loule for 'White Night', a celebration for the end of Summer.

    Carly2017-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • This house met our expectations as we (8 friends) wanted a very comfortable and scenic place to stay for our 5 days in Faro. Out of our whole trip (spent some days in Lisbon and Sintra) this house I believe was more than we could have dreamed. Very nice interior design, with a nice barbeque and so much outdoor space. We were very comfortable inside the house as well, as it was spacious and had all necesities. The pool was remarkable and also clean, as well as everything else inside or outside the house. The sunset was a perfect time for being at the house - I personally couldn't ask for anything more for my trip-. Our host Tiago was very helpful with any questions we had and very friendly as well. I would totally recommend this place for groups who want to spend a very nice vacation in regards to having a quiet house outside of the city, but close enough by car. P.S.: Two beautiful dogs who love the company of people will be also around there (I believe they were our host's uncles' dogs). They are very friendly and unique I can say.

  • My girlfriend and I stayed in Andreia's appartament for 3 days. Very nice and clean place. The host was very kind and helpful giving us all sort of tips and advice for our trip. The appartament is not very big but worths the money as all the essential are present. Only one negative note: be careful as the boiler in the bathroom hasn't got enough hot water for two showers in a row! Overall very racommended for a couple who wants to visit the south of Portugal!

  • Clean, Cosy, Stylish & a road down from the beach During my short stay in Faro. Quarteira, I really did appreciate Andreia’s Apartment, because not only was it in quiet and peaceful neighbourhood. But also it was a 5 minute walk down to the beach, which had access to many restaurants, gift shops and a 20 minute walk down to Vilamoura where there is Pizza Hut and a host of Chinese, Asian and even Italian Restaurants. Andreia was a punctual, friendly and Informative host and will definitely be coming back here for a get a way in the future

It is close to (Website hidden by Airbnb) minute away from the beach, one minute away from the public transportation....lots of bars and restaurants, the supermarket is super close (2minutes walking). Elsa answered to any of our concerns (and we had a lot before arriving). She is an amazing host, she answered to anything and we really enjoyed this trip thanks to her. Thank you a lot, Elsa!

    Quarteira, Faro, Portugal

    House located at a very comfortable and quite area, near the beach of Faro and the natural area park of Ria Formosa. The house is fully equipped, with wifi internet, private pool and garden. The house is 10 minutes by car from the airport. The pool doesn't have a fence protection. It is recommended a special attention for those who will have children in the pool area.
    The house is located in a quiet residential area, a few minutes drive from the beach of Faro, also reachable by bicycle (we have 2 for free). There's a beautiful natural reserve nearby, also bicycle reachable, with birds, golf courses and a very nice restaurant by the lake. The neighborhood is quiet, but you have everything nearby: cafes, supermarket, restaurants. There is a gym less than 5 minutes walking with swimming pool and tennis court.
  • The pool is a delight, spotlessly clean and a wonderful way to start the day. There are lots of different seating areas and the bedrooms were again clean and comfortable. We found cheap eating places up by the university and a great place in Faro town centre where all four of us ate for less than 20 euros. It was called Simple. We left some cards.

  • Miguel is a great host and we enjoyed our stay at the house. It's a spacious and vibrant house with a exotic swimming pool and it was very clean. It had a nice parking and a garden. It was a very pleasant stay!

  • The location is good in terms of proximity to the airport, amenities etc. Be careful of the floors - they are smooth marble/stone and we fell over several times. One of my friends even fell in the shower and hit her head on the toilet. The bday and toilet were cracked on arrival so this looks like it is a common occurance. Unfortunately the host tried to charge us for this but airbnb were very helpful in sorting this out for us.

  • We had a lovely time staying in this beautiful home. Everything and anything you might need from sunbathing to cooking a lovely meal. The pool was absolutely amazing! Miguel was very helpful and very responsive. Had a phenomenal time - thank you Miguel!

  • Quality place , easy location , easy access to Faro, no airport noise, cleaned twice in 8 days , pool also cleaned twice , lots of clean towels, English channels on TV, air con in 2 bedrooms, pool fantastic but a little deep, good BBQ, parking on drive for hire car. Cost only 4euros in Uber from airport (10 euros in taxi). Take your rubbish to recycle and garbage bins round the corner. Recommended. Only down side was noisy dogs next door and missing a few essentials (e.g. Extra toilet rolls, bin bags, washing powder, etc)

    Stewart2017-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great value for money, effortless check-in, and professional service. The house is very clean and cozy, located within a 5-minute drive from the airport. Would stay here again!

  • Very good week end, thé house is very beautiful, thé swimming pool too.

    Lydie2017-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and nice villa well located not too far from the city, the airport and the beach. The private pool is a must and we spent the most of our time there. Hosts were very friendly, helpful and caring... We will definitely contact Miguel in our future stay in Faro...

  • Nice place, nice flat :-)

    Dinis2018-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Good place, suitable mostly for 2-4 people, but the host was very good!

    Ondrej2018-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Rui's apartment was perfect for a long weekend for 4 of us. Like all previous reviews he was incredibly helpful and also very kindly messaged to check we were all doing ok throughout the weekend. The apartment is in a perfectly quiet area but everything is walkable. Having towels provided was brilliant and the kitchen is fully equipped if you'd prefer to cook some evenings. We loved the little garden and would sit out there each morning and evening. It was ideal, and the apartment is exactly like its pictures.

    Becky2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great place close to the marina and restaurants. Lovely yard and outside area, very private as well. Thanks for the stay Rui!

    Kyle2018-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is exactly as described on airbnb and Rui was a great host. We were not disappointed. It is in a good location not too far from the Vilamoura Marina, about a 15 minute walk. The beach was about 20 minutes. From a disabled perspective the apartment was very accessible and the walk to the Marina was reasonably flat. Using the wheelchair to get about was absolutely fine. The nearest supermarket was only a couple of minutes walk from the apartment, where you will also find a number of small cafes and a couple of banks. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

    Mark2017-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place was perfect for what I wanted - I should say that I rented it for 2.5 months (the longest Rui had ever rented the property). Having been to Vilamoura and the Algarve plenty of times before I knew it was where I wanted to stay. It is close to the Marina (2minute walk) but far enough away that you cannot hear anything at all at night. There are several little cafe/bars next to the property. Most are frequented by locals as well as tourist (and thankfully cheaper than the normal Marina prices). The TV, WI - FI, kitchen appliances all worked well. Everything was clean when I arrived and kept so by the lovely cleaners. The garden gets glorious sun from midday to 7pm, there is an awning for when you need shade. Rui was great. He picked me up from the airport at a very reasonable rate. There were a few technical issues at times, such as one of my payments not processing correctly, but Rui was very understanding and helped me resolve them. I could always contact him if needed but he never imposed or just randomly dropped in - as some airbnb hosts decide to do. All in all, the property was a bargain and perfect for me stay.

    Alexander 2017-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Rui's place was well situated in Vilamoura for the marina and bus stops for Faro and Albefeira etc, however it was quite a walk to the nearest beach. The gardens were delightful, sunny and well kept. However, as this was advertised as 'your house in Vilamoura beach', we were disappointed to find it actually wasn't, the nearest beach was a good 15minute walk away, also it is not a 'house' more an apartment with front and rear gardens. There is an apartment above which at times was quite noisy, which we could cope with but would have been more prepared for had we not assumed we were getting 'a house' Rui was the perfect host however, he was waiting for us at the airport and all our needs were met, he was always available and very obliging.

    Susan2017-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Rui and his wife met me on arrival and were very flexible with our check in time. They showed me around the flat and provided me with tips on day trips around the Algarve, places to do grocery shopping & have coffee! The flat had a great private garden with a table and chairs & loungers where we did all our meals and caught a bit of sunshine just before sunset. The tv has plenty of channels for those lazy nights in. There is also a private back parking space if you can't find a place to park on the street. The only think I would recommend Rui is to get a portable fan because despite leaving windows open during the day to create some wind, the flat was too hot at night, in my oppinion. It's not a massive fault and we would definitely be back to Rui's amaZing flat! Carolina & Mo

  • The house was very nice, as it appeared in the photos. Christine's mother was waiting for us at home, she was very kind and, even she didn't speak english, she tried to give us many informations. The apartment is in a good position to visit Algarve and the area is very quite. In the night there's always a lot of wind and it's a little bit cold, also in august, so take with you some heavy clothes! Unfortunately there isn't wifi!

    Valentina2015-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in Loulé was just great! We were welcomed by Chris father, which is a very nice man! The apartement was so nicely done and everything was decorated so lovely! The kitchen is equipped with the most needed things and the whole Appartement was very clean! We are very happy with our stay and would always come back!

    Catherine2017-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • All was great, the apartment was clean and has a lot of space, very comfortable. We were received on time and Mr. Cabrita is a very nice person.

    Sergio 2016-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • We surely recommend this home, it is very comfortable, even for families. Loulé is a city very quiet and nice. It is 30 minutes from all main beaches, but you need smoothing to move around. We rent a scooter. Christine’s dad welcomed us, he is a lovely person!

    Alice2018-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Christine's place was perfect for visiting Loulé and its Mardi Gras Carnaval. It's easy walking distance from the town centre, very comfortable and Christine and her dad Manuel are very helpful and friendly hosts. Highly recommended!

    Amyas & Leanne2017-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is as lovely as you can see in the photos! Clean, neaty, very spacious, well equipped and smart decorated. Loulé is in the center of the Algarve area so you are close to many places! High connected to the main roadways! There's many parking places around and you can go to the downtown in a couple of minutes walking! There's shops, groceries and supermarkets really near and the area is quietly! In my opinion you need a car to really feel free to discover the zone but there's a bus stop just at the corner! We couldn't meet Christine but her sister was a great hostess! Thanks a lot for the opportunity to accommodate in your flat! It was a real pleasure!

    Ismael2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • My Boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at the apartment. It was clean and communication worked really well. The flat has a good location and we had no struggle finding a parking spot near the aparment. Would stay there again :)

  • Thanks for a great stay in Quarteira. The appartment is just like on the pictures, very clean and right near the lovely beach. :-)

  • We have lived well. The apartment is in the town center. All services are outside the door. The apartment is on the 6th floor. It has a lovely balcony which is glazed. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything we needed, almost like home. It was therefore easy to cook. We ate all meals on the balcony which meant a wonderful view that few restaurants in town can match. The beds are comfortable and a full-grown person will fit (I am 187 cm tall). The contact with the host has worked perfectly from the time we arrived, we were oriented on how everything works. Before we left the apartment, we had a dialogue on how it worked for us. We are very satisfied and will come again.

    Östen2015-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the location only 3 minutes from the beach. Also close to the bus station to travel to places like Villamoura and Albufaria.The apartment was excellent and very clean and comfortable with all amenities. We would have no hesitation in returning sometime in the future.

    Oliver 2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Liliana, Horatio and their daughters are wonderful hosts. Their are very friendly and accommodating. The apartment is well equipped, very clean and comfortable. If I had a request of any kind, it was dealt promptly to my satisfaction

    Arlette2017-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great flat, very good value for money. Lovely view of the beach from the terrace, had breakfast there every morning. Less than 1 minute walk round the corner to the beach. Supermarket, cafes, restaurants and bakeries all within 1 minute walk. Perfect location for a relaxed beach holiday.

    Megan2018-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • We really liked the apartment, communication and check in/check out were perfect, also the location is great. The only thing that we have to criticize is that the apartment was very hot, there was no proper possibility to cool it down. The fan was working, but it wasn’t that strong. But all in all we had a nice stay in the apartment :)

    Anna2018-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment. Luxuorius and modern bathroom, dining room has a breathtaking view at the ocean. Kitchen equipped with all necessities. The apartment is clean, and the bedroom has two comfy beds with nice sheets and the window with the ocean view. At night you can hear calming sound of the waves. Quartiera is calm and quiet in September. Nearby, at the end of the promenade there is a market with dozens of species of fish from the night fishing. Every day we bought there shrimp, salmon, tuna to prepare dinner at home. It was delicious and cheap. Next door there is also a fruit&vegetable market. We got to Quartiera from the Faro airport with a taxi - it costs ca. 27 EUR.

  • We found Vanda very approachable and any queries we had she dealt with very quickly and efficiently. The apartment was in a great location for the beach, local markets, restaurants and shops however because of the location we could hear loud music from the restaurants/cafes on the Saturday night (Not every night and not a great problem!) The apartment was very clean with all we needed however there were a few minor problems with the kettle not working and a loose tap, although we had an amazing week and the minor problems certainly didn't affect our stay. We would certainly recommend here to any friends and family and wouldn't hesitate to come back to the same apartment again!!

    Debbie 2016-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.

    celine2017-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was very spacious, clean and central. I would recommend it and totally come back again. Especially the balconies were great. Check in and out also worked without any problems. Das Apartment war groß, sauber und sehr zentral. Ich würde es jederzeit weiterempfehlen und erneut buchen. Besonders der Balkon war traumhaft. Check in und out haben problemlos funktioniert.

    Charlotte2017-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very nice: - excellent location - beautiful view of the ocean (a large balcony.) How nice it was to have breakfast and dinner with a view of the ocean!) - in the quartet there is everything you need (stove, microwave, iron, coffee machine, toaster, refrigerator, chaise lounges, umbrella, shower, bed, TV, sofa, armchairs, closet - absolutely everything!) The truth was every night was very noisy. Since there are restaurants at the bottom. And before 2 am you can not sleep. But this did not mar your journey. The apartment is quite clean and cozy, spacious and bright! Unfortunately the first evening we saw three cockroaches in the kitchen, but then they were not met, maybe they ran from the restaurant or from the market .... Vanda pulled us together in a quartet. Everything showed and told. Said that we can send sms or call with any questions.. But when we had questions (we sent 2 sms and once called, then she did not answer). It certainly did not mar your rest, but somehow it's strange. Maybe she is very busy ..... Well, suddenly it would be something serious and urgent for us .... The day we left, Wanda promised to arrive at a certain time so that we gave her the keys, but she did not come - maybe traffic jams .... I do not know ... But in spite of everything, the apartments are very good and I recommend them! Thank you, Vanda, for your hospitality!

    Anastasia2017-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. Nice and clean apartment. I can only recommend.

    Сергей2018-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, with current bed structure not recommended for tall or fat persons, especially not for tall and fat persons. Fantastic view to the ocean, beautiful terrace, very good location, just at the beach (150 meter from water), shop is downstairs, fruit, meat and fish market, bakery at the opposite side of the street. Very good, that it has a huge windowed terrace, this is the only one nearby, you can have breakfast/lunch/dinner while looking at the ocean. You can grill on the terrace as well, Vanda provided coal+fire starter for that. Con is gas system: it is with gas tank and not correctly solved for hot water in bathroom. Pro is kind personality, very good location and affordable price.

    Gábor2018-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • For me is important three things when I travel by myself, location, location and location. Everything we have found at Vanda's apartment and all we needed as well. When we go to Portugal again, we definetly chouse Vanda's place. Thank you and hope see you next time. Obrigado.
