I love to travel around the world and enjoy life at it's best!
We stayed in this apartment last year and were eager to come back.
Last year was great...Well! Rod and Gigi found ways to make it even better.
In short, they are fabulous hosts and the apartment is tops.
Thank you Gigi and Rod. Hope to see you next year.

This is a good little flat in an excellent location. Having the train station down the road and only being a short taxi ride from the airport means you don't need a car. It's comfortable and the terrace would have been lovely if it hadn't rained for three days! Gigi and Rod were very welcoming and helpful. What was particularly good was that the basics were left for us so we didn't have to stock up for a three day stay. I wish more self catering places did that. We ate at Sto Antonio's and Ardega Nova..both excellent, the fish especially and we had a lovely trip to Olhao where we got a ferry to the fishing island of Culatra and another day in Tavira..all to be thoroughly recommended. This is brilliant base for Portugal's south coast.
We had a wonderful stay at Gigi's and rod's. the place was comfortable,clean and well appointed. Gigi and rod met us at he bus station and were charming company as well as very informative about Faro and the surrounding area. It is perfectly located to see the Algrave area. Thank you Gigi and Rod. We enjoyed our stay.
Gigi and Rod are very welcoming hosts, and gave us lots of hints about our stay in Faro. The flat is well appointed and comfortable. Sadly the weather did not allow us to use the large west facing terrace.
We spent a lovely week at Rod and Gigi’s apartment at the beginning of 2014. Faro is a good base for exploring the Algarve and the flat was in a great location beside the train and bus stations. There were also plenty shops and restaurants nearby. The apartment was very spacious with two bedrooms, bathroom with bath and shower, a large, well-equipped kitchen and the living room which opened onto a delightful terrace. Also included was wi-fi, a washing machine and a lift which saved our weary legs at the end of each day. Gigi and Rod were there to greet us (with yummy custard tarts and wine) and all pre-booking communications were prompt and in excellent English. No faults here, would highly recommend this property
We had an amazing new year with parent in the Gigi and Rod's villa. When we arrived we found all the facilities as expected with Gigi and Rod meeting us. They are amazing hosts and were very helpful during our stay.
Campus was great - very clean and good facilities. There are so many things you can do even in low season.
We would recommend everyone to go there again.

We were very happy about the appartment and host. The place looked even better then on the pictures. Gigi was kind and helpfull.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Gigi was a wonderful and welcoming host. We arrived later in the evening and were greeted with delicious Portuguese snacks, which after a long journey were greatly appreciated. The apartment was impeccably clean and conveniently situated. The view from the balcony is stunning!
An excellent experience from start to finish, Gigi & Rod made us most welcome to No 24 which was ideal for the 4 of us.
Located just outside the Old and alongside the new centres of Faro, it is in a great location.
The facilities are all well maintained and clean with a very calm and relaxed feeling to the apartment.
We much appreciated the roof terrace which was well used.
Hope to return for more as we found Faro a great place with some excellent restaurants and bars.
O Castello ( Gigi & Rod's recommendation ) on the old city walls is THE place to watch the sunset, with reasonable prices and tasty nibbles.
Gigi is the best advisor anyone can find.
In her hands, we are sure to be welcome and at the right place.
Gigi and Rod usually became friends to their clients.... and that´s THE sign.
