We were met on arrival by Nuria who was very friendly. The flat is very nicely furnished and clean. There is a small supermarket close by with most things that you need and the staff are friendly and speak good English.
It can be hard to get around if you don't have a vehicle but we used to go to a snack bar (turn right and then left) by the bank to order one from there. In this snack bar the drinks are ridiculously cheap - we ordered two bottles of beer and two glasses of delicious wine and it came to 3 and a half euros.
You can get a bus outside the apartment which will take you to the Jumbo centre and then its not far to walk into Faro Centre.
Thank you Nuria for a lovely stay and organising a taxi in the early hours of the morning for us to get to the airport Plus
