(Prime Home Vacations Estúdio Gêmeos)

We offer for rent a studio in Portimão in the south of Portugal in the Algarve region.
We believe that you will fall in love with the Algarve as well, it is a wonderful destination. We look forward to you!
The apartment is located on the 6th floor, in a house with 2 elevators. The balcony has a beautiful view of the city and the river Arade. In the morning you can enjoy a beautiful view of the sunrise.
The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen, so if you are interested, you can cook. There is an electric stove with oven, refrigerator with freezer, microwave, kettle, dishes, television, etc.
The apartment has a free wifi, so it is possible to use the apartment for a holiday associated with possible work from home.

Bath towels, towels and bed linen are also provided. The apartment also has enough storage space (wardrobe, chest of drawers).
A clothes horse is also provided

- Minimum 3 nights in low season, 7 nights in high season

Free parking anywhere in front of the house. There is no problem with parking, we have never had a problem to find a parking place.
Our apartment is located in Portimão, which is a small town with about 50,000 inhabitants, located about 1 – 1.25 hours from the airport in Faro (on the highway it is a bit faster). It is an ideal location for exploring the whole region of the Algarve, as it is located approximately in the middle of the coast, where you will find the most beautiful beaches and hiking trails from all over the Algarve.
It is an apartment on Rua dos Lusíadas, Edifício Os Gemeos, about 500 meters from the center and 1.7 km from Praia da Rocha beach and 2 km from other beautiful beaches. This is the ideal distance, in the Algarve it would be a pity to spend a holiday on one beach, so there is no need to be a few meters from the beach and I recommend to explore the whole coast. It is therefore an ideal location, close to the beach, the center and a short walk from the beautiful promenade by the river Arade, which is much calmer and more pleasant for evening walks than the promenade by the beach, where there are quite a lot of tourists (in high season). However, if you like rather busy places, you can also enjoy evening walks along the promenade at Praia da Rocha beach, where you will find plenty of restaurants, bars, souvenir shops and you can enjoy views of the beach and cliffs.

If you are interested, I will be happy to advise you on the itinerary with regard to the length of stay and whether you are planning to spend time on the beaches or do hikes/ walks along the coast or a combination of both or boat trips or other attractions in the area.
Near the apartment you will find all civic amenities (restaurants, supermarket, hypermarket, fruit/vegetable/fish market, bakery etc.)
The apartment is located near restaurants at reasonable prices (it is not a problem to find a restaurant where food costs 8-10 EUR, close to our house there is also a restaurant where food for take away costs only 5.50 EUR)
Also shops are very close, hypermarket Continente just 300 meters from the house, Lidl 700 meters and Pingo Doce 600 meters.
Mercado Municipal – I recommend visiting the Mercado Municipal market, which is located about 900 meters from the apartment. You can buy fruit and vegetables here at good prices and there is also a fish market.
Bakery – you can also have a fresh pastry, it is located right behind our house – http://www.paodavomaria.com/
Shopping center – Aqua – a large shopping center can be found in the northern part of Portimão – https://g.page/AquaPortimao?share
Also the Hospital do São Camilo, where they do Covid tests is very close to the apartment (if you need a covid test before returning to your home country)
The easiest option is to rent a car directly at the airport, I recommend car rental Drive4fun.
If you don’t want to rent a car, no problem, there are 2 lines to the beach and bus stops at each beach. And for city center you don´t need a car to the center, it is very close on foot. If you want to visit other locations and beaches in the area, Portimão is an ideal starting point for both bus and train travel.
There is a bus from the airport in Faro to the center and from Faro to Portimão you can get by bus or train.
