The apartment is located within a condominium with a shared entrance.
During your stay you will have full access to the accommodation and all its facilities. No one will enter the apartment without your knowledge.
You will stay in the center of Quateira but without the hussle and bussle. The restaurants just around the corner offer you a variated menu of fresh seafood, meat and wonderful, local produced vegetables. In the same building you find a small supermarket. Although you stay in the center of restaurants, shops and bars, the fabulous, relaxed nature is not far away. The surroundings offer spectacular views during hiking and we can help you to arrange horse riding, SUP or a road trip in the amazing Algarve with a private guide etc. When we check you in you can tell us about your holiday experience dreams and we will try our best to fulfill them - or hopefully exceed them. You have also a small supermarket in the same house as the apt and you can buy fresh bread every morning at the Cafe das Dunas 25 m from the location.
Quarteira is pretty easy to get around. The apartment is close to all amenities and you can easily reach most of them by walking. There is a bus- and taxi stop just outside the door. A taxi to neighboring Vilamoura and its famous Marina costs around 5-10 Euros. There are also car hire companies in Quarteira if you want to hire a car and drive around the Algarve. You have a fish and fruit market a couple of kilometers away and a avenue at the beach that you can stroll around on in the evenings and just enjoy the fresh salty air and have a drink at any of the many pubs and cafes.
If you bring the family and want to give the children a fun experience, except having fun on the lovely beach you reach two large water parks in only 30 min.
Why is Portugal such a beautiful country and place to live in? Why is it so special to us?
There are so many answers to those questions.... so many reasons to visit, enjoy, experience and share... We give you some of them, to begin with in writing. If you want to experience Algarve IRL - ask us and we will be happy to help!
Portugal is peaceful. You see the solitude and peace of the Ocean and countryside and of many territories like Algarve, Alentejo, Sintra, Douro, Geres and many, many other beautiful regions.
The main thing about Portugal is that there is no need to constantly fill your life with something, there is no want to feel the “buzz” around you. It is a country for peace, for quietness and reflection, and this is translated into the wines, food, coffee breaks, hiking’s, natural adventures, stunning views that take your breath away and SO MUCH MORE. In Algarve for example nothing is rushed, everything takes its time. There is time to breath and its natural! People have time to seek, to experiment, to enjoy.
What is especially nice about travelling in Algarve region is that all the crowds you usually encounter in other regions in Europe are absent and this is worth GOLD! At least for now, while Portugal is still a relatively under the radar country. Many Europeans haven´t really discovered Portugal - yet.
In the summer it is lovely, hot and dry and a recommendable time to visit all the hundreds of beaches. But if you want to energize yourself for seeing wide parts of the country aim for all months except June, July and August. Aim for the sweet spot between April and June, or join in on the festivities of the harvest and green Algarve in October to March.
In autumn and winter, there can be a bit of rain, and then the Algarve looks like " Swedish green summer" The landscape gets so much character and charm. There is a big upside though to winter traveling through Algarve and other parts of Portugal. You will most probably be the only foreigner around. Somewhat of a dream if you ask us.
