My apartment is ideal for a relaxing holiday, whether in winter or summer. An extensive beach of fine sand with fragrant dunes and an always calm sea. A typical little village, authentic people, fresh and exciting cuisine: a secret paradise!
The coastal towns of the eastern Algarve are real towns, far more under-developed than those in the Central and Western area of the Algarve.
If you are after a more relaxed style of holiday, away from the hordes of tourists and water parks, then the Eastern Algarve may be the place for you. The towns along the coast are not generally right on the sea. They are separated from the Atlantic by salt-pans, marshland and lagoons. These form part of the Ria Formosa Natural Reserve which stretches from just south of Faro along the coast to the town of Vila Nova de Cacela, a few kilometres west of the Rio Guadiana river on the Spanish border.
The beaches along the coast are to be found on long sandy islands and outcrops. As so, little development of hotels has been possible, and should therefore keep the area quieter than other areas in Algarve.
The wetlands of Ria Formosa Nature Reserve create a wild and specific coastline, in contrast to the red sandstone cliffs of the central Algarve and the rugged coastline in the west. Further inland and you will find a rather untouched and undeveloped territory, where small rustic villages nestle in the remote countryside. You'll find the local inhabitants going about their daily business, the same today as they did many generations before. A rich cultural heritage worth of a visit.
You will be master of all the domain! Also you can have access to the garage in the basement, which is more useful to use as a storage. You can also use my bicycle, an oldie with a front basket, but please take care of her as she's an old and sensitive lady.
Interaction with guests
I won't be around because I live up in the north. Anyway, you can contact me via telephone or email. DAILY assistance is provided by our local colaborador who will be very helpful and can give you some tips on food, visits, etc.
If you wish, we can provide extra services, like cleaning, laundry and ironing services. Please ask Ms. Ana for more info.
Other things to note
This is a pet friendly house so you can bring your non-human friend to share the holiday with you. I just ask for doubled care and monitoring, as with energetic children!
Just to remind that except for low season months, check-in (15h30) and check-out (13h) are to be at Saturday! Well, we can manage to welcome you earlier or later, if you plan to arrive with delay, but please DO CONTACT ME first, ok?
*It’s important to highlight that, except for long stays (more than 3 weeks) during low season (October-May), the price already includes the consumption of electricity, water, air conditioning, gas (DHW+cooking), Digital TV (+140 ch) and Wifi (100 Mbps). A prepaid energy fee of €4/day is due to be paid locally in advance for each month.
