great stay !

Stayed at these apartments with my 12 year old daughter for 5 nights from the 24th August.. I stayed in a studio , clean tidy and everything you would expect with a huge balcony with two sun loungers.. ..if your after lively this isn’t the place for you idea for couples and family’s , yes it might seem a little remote but within a 5-10 minute walk there are enough restaurants and a few bars, I woukd recommend Hugo tapas !! It’s 5 euros in a taxi to the centre of town with a lot more restaurants and bars .. about 15-20 minute walk to the beach .. complex is nice and clean , two pools.. bar which also serves food.. woukd recommend their full English reasonably priced and they have a happy hour from 4-6.. all the staff are friendly and welcoming..

I spent some time researching properties in the Algarve as I did not want to end up staying in a high rised block! I am glad that I chose Vale de Carros- the studio flat for a family of 4 suited us perfectly- it was clean and modern with a lovely private balcony overlooking the tennis court. We found it peaceful in the lovely well kept gardens by the pool the opposite end of the site from the bar. The location was great being only a 5 minute walk to restaurants, bank and small supermarket. We drove to the beach at Olhos D'agua most days which was a few minutes away. The kitchen was small so we just prepared sandwiches and cooked pasta etc then ate out the rest of the time. Many residents that we spoke to had stayed at Vale de Carros more than twice and we will also return in the future.
