Great accommodation, great location, great holiday

"Eating out was really cheap"

We spent a week with 2 teenage girls at Apartment Cristina and had a
great holiday. Not usually self catering holiday makers we actually
really enjoyed the experience.

There are plenty of restaurants and cafes really close by, and the
info pack provided lots of information on which ones to choose
depending on your food preferences, and a great taxi service if you
didn't want to drive. Eating out was really cheap, and so made it

The small town of Foz has a small supermarket for emergency supplies.
(Great home-baked bread) The major supermarket in Caldas is only a
short drive, and has everything you need.

The apartment is lovely, clean and very spacious. The beds were
really comfortable, and the bathrooms had great showers. The kitchens
was very well equipped, and had everything you needed. There was also
plenty of beach games, and equipment to use.

The highlight of the apartment is the terrace. It is a really good
size with table, chairs, sunloungers and a BBQ. The views were
spectacular over the lagoon. It really is a great sun-trap. The girls
loved the pool, which was really quiet.

The Lagoon beach in Foz is lovely, clean and calm, with plenty of
cafes, and restaurants and parking. It is also amazingly quiet, so no
fighting for space.

We loved Obidos. Quirky shops, great views, lovely food. A must do!!

We also went to Buddha Eden, and Alcobaca, both well worth a visit.
We had a lovely relaxing holiday, and will go again next year.

Thanks David and Christine!

Thanks for you review Tracy and Paul,

The taxi service card on the notice board in the apartment is from an
English speaking friend who was our builder when we first came to
Portugal. He eventually retired from that and bought himself a taxi
business. He showed us the ropes and he has lots of contacts which
can be useful for those looking to buy or build here.

The fresh bread in Portugal is a real treat and well worth
frequenting the local small shops and bakers rather than buying
everything at the big supermarkets.

Glad you liked your week of self catering, and hope you can come for
longer next time if the girls' school schedule permits.

warm regards,
David and Cristina
