We've had such a great holiday at Erika's appartement. Erika was so helpful, before our holiday at her apartment started (she answered all our lots and lots of questions - thanks a lot for that!). Even though we arrived kind of late, Simon would still be so kind and take his time to show us everything in the apartment aswell as answering our questions. The apartment was really good, we liked that it was next to the market, so we could go there easily. The 'noise' of the market wasn't disturbing for us at all also we didn't notice any sound from our neighbours. The apartment was well equipped and whenever something was finished (like washing powder or toiletpaper) Simon would bring it to the apartment. If you wash clothes you'll also have the opportunity to bring your clothes up to the roof and they will dry very fast! The location of the apartment was perfect for us (right in the middle of two very close supermarkets aswell as a nice bakery), you can get to the bus in about 1 minute (there is also a busplan in the apartment, which is really helpful as you rarely find the times at the stations) also you're in the center in about 5 mins and at the river Guadiana where you find Simon's awesome boat, in about 15 mins. You should definitely take a ride on Simon's boat, it's great, he'll take you to beautiful places. We did enjoy our holiday in Vila Real de Santo Antonio and would have loved to stay longer, we'll defenitely return! Thank you a lot for everything Simon and Erika.

Our stay was perfect. Simon received us perfectly on time! What a great guy. A real friend. Don't miss taking a ride on his boat. The apartment is just great. Everything was clean and in order. The kitchen is fully equiped same with the bathroom. The bedroom is big eneuf for the three of us. We don't complain about nothing. Not even the noise of the market; after all is in the center of the city and it was nothing so big like said. There are everithing you need around the apartment. Fresh products in the market, great restaurants nearby very cheap with great homemade kind real food. You can take a relaxing walk in the main street closed to trafic at night. There are many icecream stores and traditional commerce. The beach is so close, 5 minutes away with buses at the door and many supermarkets on the way. The casino of Mone Gordo is near by the beach too. You have oportunity to choose a crouded or a almost desert beach, what ever you like! So, we recomend Erika's apartment that has been very nice and helpful with us. For certain we will came back next year. Don't forget. Take a ride with Simon on his boat on the Guadiana river and maybe hire with him a barbecue along the day. It worth every single euro spent. Have a nice and relaxed time in a sweet and calm place. Thank you Erika and Simon for everyting. See you soon.

Simon was very Kind with us. The apartment was very nice. The kitchen is fully equipped and clean. Cons: Check in late: 5.00 pm, and no fan no airconditioner. Otherwise We recommend you.

Simon made me feel very welcome on Erika's behalf, he has also been most helpful during my stay. Erika kept very good contact with me as well. The flat is small but very comfortable, well situated for the town center, markets and supermarkets, I didn't have any problems really with the noise from the market holders which some people have mentioned. I would recommend staying at Erika's to anyone who wants to stay in Vila Real.

Nice apartment, the advertisment corresponds to the reality, everything clean and, despite being a small place, it is cosy and comfortable. The kitchen has most of the equipments. There are coffee places and supermarkets 2 minutes walking and parking spots in front of the building. Simon was very kind and helpful. We enjoyed very much the time spent there but there's a lot of noise outside. The place is right in front of the Public Market so my husband could not sleep well. The noise starts too soon, because, obviously, it is a public market.

A nice apartment at walking distance of the town center. The area was a bit busy for us, mostly because of the town market situated there. It was mentioned in the description, but coming from the countryside ourselves, we aren't used to much noise between sunset and sunrise. Otherwise, no complaints. A tidy and cosy place to stay in a nice little town that's full of life from morning till night.

It was a pleasant stay. We enjoyed Vila Real. But the apartment was very hot due to the fact that there was no air conditioning. Simon gave us a lift back to the airport in Faro which was very nice.
