    Description

    This lovely bright and airy apartment is on the 4th floor with an elevator and a doorman. Offering beautiful sea views, this home has easy access to a golf course, beaches, and a salt water pool. 

    Offering three bedrooms, the master (two twins together) has an ensuite bathroom with a power shower, the second bedroom has two sunbeds and a terrace for sunbathing, and the third bedroom has two twin beds, both sharing a bathroom.

    There is a large living area, including a fully stocked kitchen, and a living and dining area, both with terraces for outdoor dining or sunbathing. The living room has a fireplace, and all three terraces are filled with plants and trees.

    Conveniently, there is a grocery store, as well as a pharmacy and a snack bar/bakery downstairs.

    Though we recommend a car for sightseeing and getting around there is a bus to center of town and beaches, as well as a train that takes half an hour to Lisbon which some of our guests have been very satisfied with. These members have lived in Portugal since 1970 and love the country and the people. They are Americans and their home is a mixture of family antiques and collected artworks. 

    we also have a three bedroom home with pool in Burbank,California available.

    Guestbook

    This property was the most perfect place for my twin daughters and to stay when they played in an International tennis tournament nearby.  They felt very safe with having a doorman downstairs and felt very comfortable in the lovely unit upstairs.  They said that the views were wonderful and that they just liked everything about it.  They want to return this summer (taking me with them this time)  so we may be trying to get this very same trade again!
