Ola, Ze - Solcosta
Once again, thank you for a great three month stay at Sol Costa. This is our 8th winter with you.
Our thanks also to Armenio, Sergio, Valentina and Vitor. They all work together to make our time with you relaxing and enjoyable.
Sol Costa offers all the amenities of home, i.e. the well appointed apartments, the beautiful grounds, the gym, and the flowers.
The town of Ferreiras provides us with a flavor of Portugal and the Portuguese and yet is close to the bigger tourist centres like Albufeira and the ocean. There are many beautiful beaches 10 to 15 minutes away, so close enough to make use of them.
We enjoy the restaurants and bars which are within walking distance, especially the two across the street. The owners and staff go out of their way to welcome tourists and help us enjoy the ambience and the food. Each January when we return, they welcome us with open arms and say they are happy to see us back. Also, we are welcomed on the street by many of the Portuguese we have met over the years.
Shopping is not far away......another convenience. There is a supermarket located in Ferreiras, within walking distance of Sol Costa and not far away, 10 minutes by car, there is a bigger shopping centre where one can find almost anything.
Ze, we also enjoy the lovely towns not too far away, e.g. Silves and Alte. Beautiful drives and great places for lunch.
Gerry and I often tell our friends that Sol Costa and Ferreiras is our second home. Another plus for us is during the winter months, many people from Winnipeg stay at Sol Costa, in part, because it is owned by Joe Correia who lives in Winnipeg, but is from Ferreiras.
Again, our thanks.

We didn't see you before we left to say goodbye. Once again we really enjoyed our stay at Solcosta although 1 week was too short! We are already missing the lovely warm weather and have arrived back to winter! Thank you so much. Hope to see you next year!

I have been coming to Sol Costa for holidays on a regular basis for the past six years and have thoroughly enjoyed my stay there.
Sol Costa is located in Ferreiras which is a small town just 4 km from the lively resort of Albufeira.
I have always found the apartments at Sol Costa to be very accomodating and comfortable and situated in beautiful surroundings.
The staff are all very friendly and will go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, and if you are in need of anything you only have to ask.
I have been particularly impressed with the cleanliness of the apartments, especially the towels and linen.
The pool area is very relaxing and the service in the pool bar is very good.
I like the location of SolCosta as it is in walking distance to the local supermarket and there are several good local restaurants and cafe/bars close by.
I found it very handy as it is so close to the lively Albufeira if I wanted a night out but is a suitable distance away from the hustle and bustle of that town.
I have just spent a very enjoyable week at Sol Costa and will be sure to return again next year.

I have just returned from another brilliant holiday with yourselves. This was our third holiday and will definitely be coming back again! We love the spacious apartments which are set into beautiful surroundings. The staff were very courteous and helpful, whatever our needs and were happy to recommend places to visit - beaches, restaurants and even supermarkets! The children 15, 13 and nine loved the pool so much we had trouble getting them out!
Look forward to seeing you all again very soon

From the age of 11, I have been holidaying in the Algarve. However, since June 2004 we have been staying at Solcosta with our extended family.
Jose, Gomez, Sergio and the other staff go out of their way to help in any way they can. The other members of the team who only speak a little English Victor, Valentino are also happy to assist you when and if they can. Very amusing, but we do get understood.
Solcosta is conveniently located 4 kilometres from the beach and the centre of Albufeira. Close by are a variety of good restaurants a must to sample. Only a short walk from the apartments there are a number of shops and a supermarket. The local bars are a great place to take in the Portuguese culture. Reception is also a good source for supplying local information to assist with your stay.
We have made a lot of new friends whilst staying at Solcosta and are looking to return again very soon.
