Excellent holiday week! The photographs correspond to the reality ... Well equipped, spacious and very comfortable apartment.

Beach 5 minutes walk. Lots of markets and restaurants close by. Very nice and quiet area for strolling in the evening.

The location is perfect and the beach wonderful! I recommend it to everyone ... ideal for families, couples or groups of friends.

The pool on the roof for a dive at the end of the day is heavenly!

Jon, I appreciate all the attention and friendliness since I made the reservation. The apartment exceeded all expectations and we had a wonderful holiday!

The house is great and the location perfect. Congratulations and we will be back.

Tania Araujo Esmoriz, Levos, Portugal (Aug 17)

We had an excellent stay and the apartment was perfect for our needs. We loved the location and would certainly consider renting it again should we travel to the Algarve in the future.

We very much enjoyed our time in the apartment. The apartment was very well equipped and extremely clean.

The location was excellent and no need for a car with multiple beaches/ bars and restaurants all within very easy reach of the apartment. The rooftop pool was also well used by us and we were lucky enough that it was never busy when we used it.

The box of items which could be used on the beach was also very useful. We added to this also leaving a unicorn float and a new beach umbrella which we could not unfortunately fit in our case.

Welcome instructions and information pack were both extremely clear.

Thanks again, we had a fabulous holiday.

Sarah Badesha, Glasgow; Scotland (Jul 2017)

Thanks very much, Jon and Caroline, for the use of your wonderful apartment; beautifully clean and very well appointed.

Have had a brilliant walking holiday here and will recommend it to all our friends. Thanks!

Laetitia Cochin - Eysines, FRANCE (Aug 2015)

Nice apartment, located in a very quiet place, but close to restaurants, supermarkets and the bustling night in the Algarve.

Excellent for those wishing to relax and unwind.

Jose Carlos Cardoso - Vila Real, Portugal (July/Aug 2015)

We had never been to Portugal before and were delighted with the location of this apartment.

It is a very spacious apartment including bath and shower. Very well furnished and spotless apartment. Kitchen had all utensils etc . Roof top pool was an added extra.

Welcome pack included which was great until we went the local supermarket. Armacao de Pera has fantastic beaches and restaurants within 5 minutes walking distance. We hope to return in the near future.

Jon and Caroline have been fantastic and nothing is too much trouble to ensure you have a pleasant and stress free holiday.

Mary Moore - Manchester, Lancashire (July 2015)

We have stayed here twice now and plan to return in February 2015

The flat is spacious, spotlessly clean with plenty of equipment. It is in a good location being about 5 minutes walk from the sea front. There is parking outside and a space underground, which would be really useful in the height of the season, when cars get hot if left outside.

We always go off season and this is one of the few flats we have found which face west, thereby bringing in the sun when the days start to get chilly. There is air con for when the days are warm. The balcony is lovely for breakfast, lunch and early evening drinks!

I have never met the owner, but he is very amenable and accommodating, always replies to emails and didn't mind a bit when I broke his teapot!

Judy & Jon - Bristol (Oct/Nov 2014)

Had a wonderful stay thank you, will most certainly be returning.

Mr & Mrs Caldwell - Manchester, Lancashire (Sept 2014)

Great apartment in a great building, with a great pool!

Returning guests...

Christina Schwinghammer - Fellbach, Germany (Aug 2014)

We had a great time and the apartment was ideal, as was the location in terms of easy access to beach and all amenities.

Sonja (the agent) was most helpful when we arrived; the meet and greet service made everything 'real', especially when you are a bit brain dead after a 2am start.

Paula Butler - Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland (July 2014)

We really enjoyed our stay in your apartment. The apartment was lovely.

The McCarthy family - Ballygibbon, Blarney, Co.Cork (July 2014)

Superb apartment in superb location with superb services to make for a superb holiday!.

Have already recommended to work colleagues and friends.

We will definitely be wishing to visit again in the future!

Louise & Matthew Gardner - Worthing, West Sussex (April 2014)

This is a lovely, spacious, very well equipped, nicely furnished and comfortable apartment that is conveniently situated for local beaches and amenities and also for exploring the wider Algarve.

A generous welcome pack is provided and the 'meet and greet' service from the agent is very good, with lots of useful tips.

Jon and Caroline have also provided lots of useful information for days out, restaurants, etc. and there's a whole library of films and TV channels if you fancy an evening in.

Secure underground parking is great if you have a car. Good air conditioning, nice rooftop pool for a cool dip after a hot day out!

Mr D Stevens - Waterlooville, Hampshire (Aug/Sep 2013)

Great apartment in a great building, with a great pool!

Perfect location and Jon was very helpful from the start. We will be back!

Christina Schwinghammer - Fellbach, Germany (Aug 2013)

"Very relaxing holiday" We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at this apartment.

The apartment had everything, a home from home. The apartment had satellite TV, films on hard drive, current books, parasols, sunbeds etc. etc. Also very convenient for the centre, beaches, supermarkets and restaurants.

Roof top swimming pool is the jewel in the crown! Great stay.

Mr D Bradley - Co. Down N. Ireland (July 2013)

This apartment is very suitable for a long term winter let. The lounge and balcony face west. This means that the sun shines on the balcony from about lunch time until just before it gets dark. In addition the sun shines right into the lounge making it warm and sunny in the afternoons. We have stayed in apartments in the Algarve which face other directions and they can be very cold during the winter months. In addition Jon has provided portable electric radiators which keep the apartment warm in the mornings and when the sun goes down.

It is exceptionally well equipped, especially in the kitchen which made self-catering very easy.

Mrs J E Parker - United Kingdom (Jan-Apr 2013)

There is nothing at all about your apartment that we would change. The secure garage was great, so John had peace of mind regards the car! The kitchen was very well equipped and we did appreciate your welcome pack. It was indeed very welcome!

We were also very pleased with the welcome from Sonja, we found her very friendly and professional with her advice etc. Many thanks again for the use of your lovely apartment, we will definitely be back!

MR & MRS Webb - Devon, UK (Oct 2012)

We had a lovely stay at your apartment over the last week, Excellent position - close to all amenenities - shops - bars - beach... Great Location!

Mr A Kirkman - Liverpool (Sep 2012)

Thank you very much for letting us stay in your apartment. The apartment is very beautiful and spacious. We really appreciate the welcome pack, the equipment in the kitchen, and the beach pack.

We had a lovely time.

Malgosia Grabowska - Luxembourg. (Sep 2012)

The apartment is located in a quite and peaceful place, yet near the centre of Armação de Péra and the beaches, just by walk. With that location we had the opportunity to visit one of the 100 most beautiful beaches in the world, like Navy Beach (Praia da Marinha).

The house was completely equipped with all the accessories that we needed to make full meals and also to felt nice and comfortable..

The welcome package was unexpected, completely surprise and very, very, elegant, also perfect for first impressions. A place and cordiality no one should miss.

Miguel Esteves - Amadora, Losboa, Portugal (August 2012)

Jon & Caroline you have a gorgeous apartment. Light air spacious sheer luxury. Fantastic welcome pack upon arrival, could not ask for a better service. We will visiting again next year.

The town is great for couples as well as children. Plenty for everyone. We really found your brochures on trips eatery's & things to do very helpful indeed.

You have thought of everything for everyone's needs. We would certainly recommend you to all our friend young & old.

The George's - Weyhill, Andover, Hants. (July 2012)(Returning guests)

Absolutely great, have already recommended it to others. Car not essential, easy walking distance to the beach shops etc. Will come again!

Sarah Donovan - Basingstoke, Hants. (Mar/Apr 2012)

The apartment is great and has everything you need (and more) when on holiday. The furnishings are very comfortable and the in-house movies were very welcome as we did not have the best weather.

They have truly thought of everything and provided us with lots of information regarding the apartment and surrounding area before we travelled, including a map of the area which came in handy. Also, the welcome pack was great and very welcome after the early morning flight.

The apartment location is only a very short walk from the beach and shops and truly felt like home when we were away. Thank you very much we had a great time!

Charlotte Lepic and family - Farnborough, Hants. (Oct/Nov 2011)

From start to finish the service has been brilliant, great communication, superb information provided about the accommodation & also the local area!

Accommodation is fantastic everything you could possibly want & much more!!!. Many thanks Jon & Caroline.

Mandy George - Weyhill, Andover, Hants. (Sep 2011)

We had a brilliant holiday and we loved everything from the website to the apartment, the meet and greet service at such a late time, the welcome pack and the area, I could go on for ages.

The one big complaint I had was that I had to leave the area and Portugal to come back to the UK, which was cold, dark and well...

Thank you TO EVERYONE WHO MADE THIS HOLIDAY A PERFECT HOLIDAY, I would recommend and come back again.

The Richards family - Macclesfield, Cheshire. (Aug 2011)

Thank you very much for letting-us your apartment. It was just the right size for what we had in mind and, complete with all the mod-cons of modern life. The apartment was close to my sisters and, close to everything. Great location!!

It was great to have the BBQ on the balcony, it was used a few times during our stay. The welcoming pack was just perfect, thanks to you for organising these little touches, they make all the diference!

Hopefully will organise another stay in a couple of years and I will most defenitaly recommend your apartment to others.

Antonio Teixeira - Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia. (Aug 2011)

The Apartment is fully equipped and very comfortable!

I will recommend my friends to stay there.

We had a really enjoyable holiday, the apartment was excellent and was in an ideal location for easy access for everything we needed.

We would be happy to recommend it to others..

Thanks for your first class service regarding booking etc..

Mr John Grassby - Coventry, Warwickshire. (July 2011)

I have just had the best Portugal experience ever! The apartment was in a fantastic area with literally everything in five minutes walking distance!

With two teenagers and two small boys the apartment had all the equipment needed to make my holiday hassle free, there was even a laundry change part way through!

The beach and restaurants were so accessible with a massive range to eat and drink. Prices were soooo much cheaper than other European countries!

I am defiantly going back next year so I intend to book now before anyone pinches my weeks! Marvelous!!!

Kirsten Jones (frantically busy mother of 4!!!) - Old Basing, Hampshire. (Apr 2011)

Wicked apartment, Jon and Caroline have a fantastic apartment that is well maintained and has everything you would need to make you feel at home whilst you are enjoying your holiday.

There are loads of things to keep you and the kids occupied. Armacao de Pera is such a nice place, with some of the best beaches I have ever been on. Would definitely recommend.

Mr and Mrs Johnson - Oakley, Hants. (Sep/Oct 2010)

My partner and I were both very pleased with the apartment and its location was perfect, there was plenty of things to go see on days out even though we had no car it was easy to organise with buses etc.

Would defiantly recommend using this apartment.

Catherine Worrall - Banbury, Oxon. (Aug/Sep 2010)

We enjoyed a lot your magnificent apartment in Armação de Péra, our stay was very satisfactory and we recommend the apartment to our friends, family and colleagues.

We were able to snorkel in the area of 'Praia de Rocha' with a guide from 'Delphinus Divers' which is in my opinion the best school in Armação, for a price of only 30 Euros including some material (fins).

Antonio Castaño - Madrid, Spain. (Aug 2010)

We have been having holidays in the Algarve for a number of years, in and around Armação de Péra. This was our first experience of the apartments in the Quinta dos Arcos area and it did not disappoint.

The apartment is in a fantastic position for the town, beach, restaurants and bars all of which are just a short walk away.

Jon and Caroline have an excellent apartment which was extremely well appointed which we certainly consider returning too and recommending to anybody wishing to stay in Armação de Péra.

Martin & Sue Sigrist - Horsham, Sussex. (Aug 2010)

Thank you for providing us with the use of your apartment for the past 10 days, we had a lovely time, though the weather was pretty hot, beats the rain here though!

Everything in the apartment was terrific and the welcome pack was really appreciated.

I hope that the rest of your season is busy and that you get out there yourselves to enjoy some of that lovely sunshine.

Mr Paul Quinn - Co.Louth, Ireland. (Jul 2010)

Hi Jon! Many thanks to you. We very much liked the stay in your apartment. We had a very good holiday, thanks to you. Regards, Irina.

Mrs Irina Zelinskaya - Leningradskaya region, Russia. (Jul 2010)

A well presented apartment with just about everything you need for a great holiday. Friendly service throughout, from booking to our return home. The snacks on arrival was just the icing on the cake!

Great walking distance to beach but if have car drive to Portimao & try beach called Praia da Rocha - absolutely stunning.

Even though we were here only for a few days, it felt much longer! We would recommend to all our friends. Thank You !!

Elisa, Keval & Jo - Reading, Berks. (Oct 2009)

A first class apartment, furnished lovely. Nice rooftop pool, ideal for sun bathing. Highly recommended!

Sonia Ayres - Basingstoke, Hants. (Sep 2009)

We arrived late in the evening to find a chilled bottle of wine in the fridge along with drinks and fresh food to keep us going until we got to the shops.

The apartment was very spacious and clean with a good supply of towels and toiletries.

Our girls loved the rooftop swimming pool and with the beach only a 5 min walk, we were spoilt for choice!

The visitor guide book was very helpful with advice on where to eat out and places to visit. We referred to it often!

We were very impressed with how well the kitchen was equipped. It gave us the choice of eating in where we could make use of the BBQ on the patio.

The DVDs and games supplied were great at keeping the girls entertained. The apartment had a real home from home feel which meant the whole holiday was very relaxing. Thank you for such an enjoyable stay!

Mr & Mrs Fidler - Wokingham, Berks. (Aug 2009)

We have been visiting Armação de Péra for over 16 years and this was our first stay in the Quinta dos Arcos area.

Jon and Caroline have made a superb job in decorating and furnishing the apartment. The accommodation was extremely well appointed and we would certainly consider returning in the near future.
