Really spacious place in the center of Faro

Really spacious place in the center of Faro, right next to the harbour. Host gave a lot of information and provided useful things such as beach towels and a sunshade. Easy check-in and check-out. Only the AC was noisy, apart from that very nice place to stay, even for more than 2 people!

Great property

Great property, host, very tidy and easy to deal with. Would recommend!

Joao is a very friendly and accommodating host

Joao is a very friendly and accommodating host, he gave us clear instructions on how to find the place and many helpful information about the area. We only stayed for one night, we are glad we found this place. It located right in the city centre , the access from the backyard leading directly to the old wall, and the view over there is amazing. The room was clean, shower was good and the bed was very comfortable. High recommended.

The flat is original and well located in the city center on the ramparts.

Joao made us feel really welcome.

Joao made us feel really welcome. There was a fiesta on in the square and Joao secured us free entry and drinks. The location is great, slap in the middle of the old town with a cracking restaurant just around the corner.

The place has perfect location and still remains quiet.

Fun to be inside wall and patio out to back.

Fun to be inside wall and patio out to back. Close to good restaurants and sites. Great for our 1 night stay.

Joao was amazing!

Joao was amazing! The location is close to museums, restaurants and shopping. There is a taxi boat to the beach within walking distance. The property is part of the historic wall for the old city which has wonderful views when you go up onto the wall. There is a rooftop bar with music open on weekends but it wasn’t bad for us, just know it is there. Homey accommodations but has everything you need for a pleasant stay. Thank you, Joao!

Great location and lovely host
