thanks for the apartment - family had a great holiday

Dear David

Just a note to say thanks for the apartment.

The family had a great holiday - weather great, food and wine fantastic and very cheap! I don't think I spent more than 2.5 euros a bottle all week!

I can recommend the nearby sailing school to your future guests - run by a really welcoming team and the lagoon is a fantastic place to hone those windsurfing or catamaran skills. Food there is also well worth trying.

"a restaurant where the family breeds lusitano horses"

A friend recommended Obidos and Foz lagoon for some horseback riding,
so we came out for very long weekend. Our 5 days were great and much
better than being stuck in our fancy Lisbon hotel.

Paradise for twitchers (birdwatchers)

From: Mary (and Mike)
Date: Sun, 3 Jul 2012 16:24:53 +0100

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.

Lovely area, great apartment, super views

Lovely apartment with all the facilities you need for a great holiday

Our first trip to the Silver Coast

Date: Mon, 18 Jun 2012 11:08:40
From: Paul O

We very much enjoyed staying at Cristina Apt. in Foz this year.
It was our first trip to the Silver Coast, having only done the
Algarve in the past. It's great to find so many friendly people
and see the real Portugal, and we loved Foz.

We are already thinking we might want to do the same again
next year, especially if there is any chance of a discount for
early booking?

Great holiday - Porto - Foz do Arelho

From: "Bruce and Rene"
Date: Wed, 1 Jul 2009 11:48:15 +0100

Hello David,

just to say we had a great holiday! Villa met all expectations,
for us just what we enjoy. Must say surprised how quiet it was
in that area, apart from week enders, had the place and the pool
almost to ourselves, couldn't be better!

Tried a restaurant or two, much of a sameness we think, but you
do get good cooking at very cheap prices. We really liked Foz,
so ate and drank down by the beach.

lovely family holiday on the Silver Coast

Date: Sun, 17 Aug 2008 21:15:46 +0100
From: Susie Chance

Hi David

Just to say we had another lovely family holiday in apartment
this year. We love the area and those beautiful views!

Just one small tip for anyone else who may be arriving at the
airport for the first time... Again there seemed to be long
queues for car hire. We minimised our wait by arranging for one
of us to go through customs as soon as we got off the plane, in
order to get in the queue early. My husband went first, and I
followed with the children once we had collected our luggage.
There was still a wait, but not quite so long...

Best wishes
Susie and Andrew

Hi David,

it was really nice to meet you when you popped round during our
stay. The villa was perfect and the view stunning! We had a
brilliant two weeks and did loads of sight-seeing; we absolutely
loved that area and will definitely be back to Villa Cristina.

Hello David

Just to say that we had a lovely holiday in Apartment Cristina.
Everything was great and the view was stunning. I think our only
hiccup was the long queue to pick up our hire car at Lisbon
airport... But we will be prepared if we go again!

lovely villa holiday on the Silver Coast

Date: Sun, 12 Nov 2006 19:10:12 +0000
From: Elaine and Peter Dunkerley

Hi David,

Just wanted to let you know what a lovely holiday we had at
Villa Cristina. It was everything we hoped for. A beautifully
kept apartment which felt very homely and cared for.

Unfortunately the weather let us down so we couldn't use the
pool or tennis courts but we will return in the Spring or Summer
and make full use of the facilities then.

Foz is an interesting place and we enjoyed our trips out to
Obidos, Peniche and Baleal. We also had a good hotel in Porto
which we would recommend (Hotel Eurostars das Artes) and managed
to even have a short cruise on the Douro.

Best wishes,
Elaine and Peter Dunkerley

thoroughly enjoyed Villa Apartment Cristina

From: Mike Ross
Date: Sun, 10 Sep 2006 18:13:54 +0100


Just a note to thank Cristina and yourself for dropping by last
Sunday. We thoroughly enjoyed the week. We did not finalise
anything property wise but now have a much clearer idea of the
area and are closer to deciding what we want! Think we may head
over for a few weeks over the winter to spend time looking at
plots and houses in more detail.

We thoroughly enjoyed your apartment and if we go for something
a few weeks a year would certainly look at making you an offer.
Villa Cristina really has an outstanding view.

Again many thanks and all the best to you both.
