Just returned having stayed for 1 week. Apartment was very central - next to supermarkets, a small walk into portimao centre, and a nice half hour walk to the beech. The apartment itself was very secure with a gate that requires a code, a door that needed a key before getting to the front door! Windows have electric shutters so very secure. Apartment was very clean, well equipped, spacious. Communication from the owners was amazing throughout. Thank you!
