Paradise for twitchers (birdwatchers)

The apartment location is lovely with a gorgeous view. My boyfriend is a
twitcher (birdwatcher) and has some really powerful photographic
equipment, binoculars, and a telescope, so he was happy to spend
hours watching the lagoon wildlife from both the terrace and beside
the pool.

Having something to keep my partner busy was great for me because all
I wanted to do was crash out for a week on the sunlounger with the
latest best sellers. I hadn't brought enough books with me, but I
found some more in the apartment which was great.

We drove down from Brussels as we had lots of luggage with us, and it
was an easy trip with only one overnight stop near Bilbao. The
motorways down are really great, and in France and Portugal they are
empty too, so we arrived in the afternoon.

On arrival the apartment was comfortable and well equipped and when I saw
how big it was I decided we would bring some friends next time, or
perhaps my Mum and Dad. Next time we will have to stay longer and see
more of the local area, and I know they would enjoy that magnificent
castle town at Obidos.

We even managed to rake up enough energy to play some tennis after a
few days poolside.

thanks for a great holiday!

Lovely area, great apartment, super views

Lovely apartment with all the facilities you need for a great holiday
overlooking the lagoon. Very clean and laid out as described.
Excellent customer service from the owners, David and Christine.
Ideal for families and couples, you can have a quiet holiday if you
wish or a more fun filled one. Very good value for money and would
thoroughly recommend it.

Area is great for exploring, a wonderful buddha garden, dinosaur
footprints, and Obidos a lovely walled city.

All you need for shopping etc can be obtained in Caldas, where there
is a very pleasant park and cafe and excellent market. An up to date
shopping mall too for those who need some retail therapy on holiday..

Restaurants and cafes are bountiful (and not too expensive generally)
and the locals very friendly.

Beaches are clean and not too busy and accessible. Easy to get to
Lisbon for the day or other towns and cities. Would return for
another super holiday at Apartment Cristina
