“A PERFECT "Home away from home."”

We spent 3 days on the Algarve Coast before taking the train to Lisbon to begin our Viking River Cruise. Nigel's condo was the PERFECT home base for us. The condo was exactly as advertised, with all the best amenities. It was a short walk to several restaurants and bars and a 2 minute walk to the market. Although we did not have time to use the pool, many guests seemed to be enjoying it. We appreciated all the safety features Nigel had in place.
We were only a 15 minute taxi ride from the incredible International Sand Festival - one of the reasons we chose to stay in Guia. I HIGHLY recommend "Magnolia" for your stay.

“Magnolia, a beautiful tree, perfect name for a fabulous apartment”

We looked at several possible apartments when planning our trip to Portugal and the Algarve region. We settled on the small town of Guia. After reading and reviewing the pictures of several apartments in Guia, we kept coming back to the Magnolia. When we arrived, we were not disappointed. The apartment was very clean and decorated in a way that is very comfortable for reading and relaxing. The kitchen was completely stocked and easy for 2 to work in and prepare light breakfasts or snacks. We loved the outside patio for evening cocktails and snacks. The pool was also a positive. One in our group swam several times. The location of the apartment is perfect. You can walk for coffee in the AM and then there are several great restaurant choices for excellent fish and pork in the town. We were never disappointed

“Great Location and Good Value”

We booked this property based on the reviews and pictures and we were not disappointed. We have been to Guia several times over the last 25 years and have seen the town grow considerably but fortunately it has continued to remain a very pleasant base for a holiday. Magnolia is ideally placed for visiting any of the very good restaurants which are all within a short walk. The Apartment itself is comfortable with everything you require for an enjoyable stay. The terrace is a delight where you can sit in the shade or enjoy the sun for a large part of the day. You will be hard pressed to find better value than this apartment in this area.

Nigel & Rosie have a great apartment with excellent furnishings and everything you need to enjoy a good holiday. Security is fantastic and very reassuring. Secure underground parking if required. The terrace enjoys the sun for the whole of the afternoon and is ideal if you just want to chill. Guia is a great central location with a number of good restaurants and cafés. The Atlantico and Palladium are good quality restaurants and Guia Football Club is great for a light lunch or an evening meal. The N125 and the Motorway are within easy reach and Zoo Marine is a short journey and a good day out.
