We very much enjoyed our stay at the apartment in its quiet scenic rural Algarvean location. We were given a great welcome by the friendly and helpful owners. The apartment was well-maintained, clean, bright and roomy with a well-equipped kitchen and lounge. Situated on the side of a peaceful valley, yet only a short drive from the small town of Messines and a modern large supermarket, it was a good base for exploring the coast (seek out Praia da Gale and Praia da Albandeira!) as well as inland (e.g. the towns of Silves and Monchique). We were extremely pleased with our choice of accomodation for our holiday and thoroughly recommend a stay in the apartment.
