Our commitment to our guests:
We pride ourselves on our accommodation and the service we offer, from your initial enquiry and booking, through to your arrival at apartments ‘Belas Vistas I and II’.  We will meet you at your apartment to welcome you personally, make sure everything is explained to you about the apartment, the facilities, the resort and the local area.
Our service extends to when you have returned home where we will refund all deposits (if applicable) within 72 hours and ask for your feedback. Our personal service provided to our guests ensures the highest level of standard so you enjoy your time staying at ‘Belas Vistas’.
You will see that our apartments are more than just a self-catering apartment we provide lots of extra little touches, making it ‘home from home’  for your comfort and enjoyment. The apartment is maintained to a high standard so it’s like new.

We bought our first apartment in February 2007 from new after visiting the Algarve a couple of times and falling in love with it, we dreamed of owning a property here. On a whim we applied to the TV programme ‘A place in the sun’, but we found our dream apartment before we got through to the final stage and in the end we didn’t need any help.

For the first two years our family, friends and ourselves used the apartment for holidays, we visited at every opportunity we could, we loved the place, the relaxed lifestyle and local people more each time we visited and it felt like home, so we decided to emigrate and give living in Portugal a go. Six years later we’re still here and although we lived in the apartment for two years, we reluctantly, had to move to a bigger property to have room for our families and friends to stay when they visit, so we are now letting others enjoy our apartment ‘Belas Vistas’.

In 2015, we decided to buy our second one bedroom apartment, which is also a first floor and with one bedroom, the apartment had never been sold and it is newly fitted with appliances, furniture and a new bathroom. We’ve enjoyed the challenge of ensuring the furnishings and finishing touches are as good as the first apartment and we know guests will love staying here.

Whichever one you decide to stay in we hope you enjoy them and the resort and area as much as we still do!

We now live in a small village very close by so we manage the apartment personally, ensuring it’s spotlessly clean and has all the little things that you will need on your arrival. We’re not far if you need anything or any help and advice but otherwise we leave you to enjoy your stay in the beautiful Algarve.

We have an official Portuguese Letting Licence on both apartments:
