We can also arrange Car Hire with a company who provide all inclusive prices (no hidden extras) - car hire is not essential but useful if you want to explore for a few days during your stay. What we advise is that, if you do want to explore some of the nice scenery and unspoilt beaches, then take a car for 3-5 days and relax for the initial and ultimate part of your holiday.

We would like to add that this property is not only suitable for summer lets, but also winter lets because of the heating, woodburner, provision of electric blankets and duvets,one level (for the elderly or small children) and close proximity to the village.

We are a family of 4. I am from Dublin, Ireland and my husband Paul is from Middlesex in England. We have been living in Algarve for over 30 years and our daughters Emma and Katie were born here. We also took time out and spent 3 years living in Germany from 1996 - 1999. The apartment was our family home for 6 years, but at the end of 2010 we moved to a house with the space needed for our extended family ie grown up daughters, 3 dogs and 3 cats. Apart from looking after the apartment, I run my own Property Management Company. My husband Paul is a PGA Golf Professional - if you are golfer, you can pre-book individual or group lessons/clinics on the driving range or on the course. Paul teaches in English, Portuguese and German. We live only a few hundred metres from the apartment and do our utmost to make sure you have a happy & memorable holiday. The Condominium where we live has a Childrens Park and Putting Green which can be used by our guests.

Eileen Tipper purchased this apartment in 2004

The location is ideal for those who like to live within the Portuguese community but at the same time within easy reach of Albufeira Centre. It is just a few minutes walk to the village of Ferreiras with all its amenities and just a 5 minute drive to The Strip or to the Old Town which can be reached by cheap local taxi or taking The Giro (City Bus) which stops outside the Condominium.

The apartment is very cosy, homely and rather different because it has its own private garden and has many extras making it feel like home from home. The large shared pool is gated/hedged which makes it secure for young children. In off peak times, you can sometimes find yourself with the large pool all to yourself. The Condominium is also enclosed for added safety. Everyone can benefit from the atmosphere within the complex due to the mixture in age groups ranging from the International to the professional Portuguese families, some who own holiday homes and some who live there.

HOME FROM HOME - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a lovely week in this great apartment in the sun. It really is a home from home with everything you need to have a great holiday. We enjoyed many BBQ'S on the fabulous tiled patio and this is a great space to send the afternoon. English TV and free Wifi as well as loads of books and toys for the kids. Great walk in shower. The shared pool was lovely and clean and my daughter had great fun there. Eileen and Paul were brilliant and assisted us in every way they could. All in all a fab holiday and we hope to return again someday.

WINTER BREAK

  • 4 of 5
Very spacious apartment with loads of storage. New walk in shower was great and garden area was ideal. A true home from home. Due to the timing of our visit in February we didn’t have use of the pool but we could see that it would have been a big plus had we made our visit during the summer. Neighbours were very friendly and their children very polite. Very quick drive to Albufeira with its lovely beaches and loads of restaurants. Plenty of other beaches within easy reach.
Paul, Eileen and family were very helpful especially when we had a personal crisis to deal with. Many thanks to you all.

THE BEST FAMILY HOLIDAY WE HAVE EVER HAD!

  • 5 of 5
I would just like to say what a fabulous time we had in your beautiful apartment. It was so homely and you made us feel so welcome. We were so sad to have to leave!! The bedrooms were so spacious and comfortable and the garden and outside eating area was perfect. It was so nice to be somewhere that has everything you could possibly need to hand. The apartment was spotless on arrival and it was brilliant to have a selection of information leaflets about the location and activities around the area available to help us plan our trips out ect. The location was good it was ideal for us as it was not noisy and we were able to reach the main town easily.

Eileen and Paul thanks so much for all you both did to make our stay so good, you both made us feel so welcome and we really enjoyed your company. We will definitely be coming back in the future!!

Thanks again for everything,

Beth, Richard, William and Toby

Owner's Response: Hi Richard, Beth, William and Toby,

Thank you so much for the lovely comments about our apartment. We are so glad that you enjoyed it and had such a great holiday. We too enjoyed your company and were so glad we invited you out with our friends to watch the football - shame though that England lost.

It was a pleasure to have you stay at our apartment - you are a lovely bunch and we really do hope that you come back in the future.

Thank you again and keep in touch.

MY GREAT HOLIDAY AT VALE SERVES FERREIRAS.

  • 4 of 5
Hi Eileen.
Just a few sentences about your lovely apartment. We really enjoyed our stay. Everything you said about you place was true. The apt. was bright and very clean and tidy. The bedrooms were spacious and with plenty of storage. The living room was just as you described. Sky TV was a great bonus. The garden area was great and ideal for sunbathing. The pool was good . It was quiet around the pool and felt like you had your own private pool. We met with a few of your neighbours and everyone was very nice and helpful. The village of Ferreiras was a good walk from the apartment and the local supermarket had everything you needed. The local cafes were great and a good place for a cheap drink before dinner. There is a great selection of local restaurants and a taxi into Albufeira was only 6 euros. Overall we enjoyed your apt. and would recommend it to anyone. We have already told our friends abouy it. The only bad thing was that one week was not enough. Thanks love Rosalind.

PERFECTA ESTANCIA LLENA DE TRANQUILIDAD Y DESCANSO

  • 5 of 5
Estuvimos en esta confortable casa una semana durante el verano pasado y nos hubiéramos quedamo más. La casa, amplia, bonita, perfectamente equipada y limpia. La decoración, con buen gusto, y nada viejo, todo en buen estado. No faltaba de nada: tanto juegos de mesa, menaje del hogar, ropa de cama, vídeos y libros. Pero sobre todo disfrutamos de su holgura, habitaciónes amplias y una suite matrimonial muy grande y con un gran ventanal al jardín. Estupendo. He de decir que el punto fuerte de esta casa es su precioso jardin, quizás algo más ampliio que en la foto. Y sin mosquitos. La piscina comunitaria está a dos pasos. No es muy amplia pero agradable. Nosotros íbamos por la mañana a ella (cuando no había niños, aunque pocos) y después de comer, a la playa, cuando menos pegaba el sol. Por cierto, esta ubicación resulta útil para trasladarse a las playas cercanas,a unos 10 minutos. La propietaria, muy amable y afable en su comunicación en inglés, les indicará cuáles son las más adecuadas con gran exactitud. Ya que en la mayoría de las playas de esta zona no hay construcciones en primera línea de playa, siempre hay que coger el coche y por eso, este lugar es tan bueno como otros para ubicarse y visitar las playas, sin ser tan caro como los municipios o residencias algo más cercanos al mar. A nosotros (matrimonio y un niño de 4 años) nos gustó muchísimo y la recomendamos sin encontrar ningún defecto en ella. Mi puntuación es de 9 y no de 10 ya que la piscina no era muy grande pero suficiente.

My quotation is 9 on 10
Beautiful and very nice garden as well as the house, decoration, and large and light vanes and good location to go by car to the nearest beaches. Very nice and honest owner: Eileen. Hy, thank you to let us stay so fine!

Owner's Response: Ola Ana,

Paul & I just want to say thank you so much for writing the really nice review on our apartment. We are pleased that you enjoyed your time in our place which we also love very much. We would have loved to stay living there, but our daughters became women too soon and we needed the extra bedroom. We look forward to going back there in the years to come when Emma & Katie move on with their own lives. Meantime, we will just try to keep our clients happy. Hope to see you again some time in the future and best regards to your husband and lovely little son.

Thanks again,

EILEEN

Ferreiras is ideal for those who wish to live within the Portuguese community, but at the same time within easy reach of Albufeira Centre. The Óld Town`and ´The Strip`are within 5 minutes by Car or Taxi and 10 minutes on ´The Giro´(City Bus) which stops right outside the Condominium. Local shops, restaurants (much cheaper eating locally) bars, cafes, large supermarket, butchers, bakeries, local daily regional market for fresh fish, vegetables and fruit, municipal market (twice monthly), banks, chemist, filling station, childrens park etc. are all within easy walking distance of this up and coming suburb of Albufeira, which has now become a favourite for foreigners who wish to reside or buy a 2nd home abroad, as well as the Portuguese themselves who want to live away from the hustle & bustle of Albufeira centre. The whole village has a great feel to it and the apartment is centrally located to explore, by car or local train, the whole of Algarve from the Spanish/Portuguese border to Cape St. Vincent (the most southwesterly point in Europe). The Albufeira Train Station is within 10 mins. walk from the apartment. You can also take the Alfa High Speed train to the city of Lisbon (journey takes approx. 2 1/2 hours). The property is 400 metres from the National Road N125 and 5 mins by car from the Motorway A22. There are 3 Golf Courses in Albufeira and 6 in nearby Vilamoura, which also boasts its famous cosmopolitan Marina. Zoomarine Oceanic Park, Algarve Shopping with its large hypermarket, many line shops and large food court + Retail Park (with Iceland for all your home products) are all within 10 mins. drive from the apartment. Some of the most beautiful beaches in Algarve are within 5-10 minutes drive, including Sao Rafael. Water sports are available at many of these beaches during the summer months.
