Overview

Albufeira Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Modern Apartments in Historic Zone 3 mins Walk to Beach, Town, Restaurants.

Beautiful beaches, an abundance of restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, market stalls and the lively night life entertainment around the old town square and Fisherman's Beach make old town Albufeira an all-year destination... and, all this is a 3-5 minute walk from our front door! Two beaches, the popular Fisherman's Beach and the famous Peneco town beach seen in every photograph of Albufeira, are at the end of our street where from a viewing platform you are presented with breathtaking views and photo opportunities.

These spacious, ground floor apartments built in 2002 are on (above) the beach in a picturesque, car-free, residential side street lined with quaint fisherman's cottages - many still lived in by local people. This historic area of old town Albufeira runs along the cliff tops overlooking the beaches. A 3-5 minute walk down a gentle slope, steps or lift will take you right on to the beach or lead you in to the heart of the old town where at night the streets come to life with outdoor entertainers and where a variety of free live music is on offer from many eating and drinking establishments. And, when you have had enough you can walk home in minutes to rest and sleep in a peaceful area and quiet apartment. Enjoy Albufeira and Walk Everywhere from these Apartments!

Old Albufeira is a collection of characterful, streets that run off the old coast road and are very close to the beaches. If you want to be 'in' the old town then check the map.

APARTMENT INFORMATION:

APT1 and APT2 were built in 2002 and offer modern living facilities - spacious rooms, comfortable temperature in summer and winter, reliable utility services, entry phone and private parking in a secure underground garage. The front door to the building serves four apartments - APT1 and APT2 and two apartments above which are lived in so the common area is private and pleasantly quiet. Well equipped with home comforts and located in a safe neighbourhood inhabited by local Portuguese these apartments are ideal for year round rental.

Be sure to check the specifications and photos for the apartment you are interested in - select tab APT1 (2 bedrooms) or APT2 (3 bedrooms) above. Photos are marked APT1 or APT2. Many more photos available - please ask to see them.

WIFI is freely available in most hotels, bars and restaurants. The Hotel Sol e Mar and Tres Coroas Restaurant (Three Crowns) are at the end of our street and they offer free Wi-Fi and sea views. We enjoy sipping cocktails in the large retro lounge of the Hotel Sol e Mar or sitting on their balcony overlooking the sea while we catch up with friends and family via the internet. APT1 and APT2 can offer Wi-Fi for 5EUR/day. See APT1 and APT2 info for details.

Two recommended local POOLs (one 12-15 min pleasant walk or 3-4 min drive from Apts) with good facilities e.g. snack bar, toilets, loungers, sea view etc. Ask for details.

About Tracy Evans

I visited and fell in love with Albufeira in 1979 when it was a typical fishing village and have been back almost every year. My 4 children (2 boys and 2 girls) spent many happy holidays in the Algarve. They are now 26, 22, 19 and 16 and still visit but mostly with friends. I can tell you what to do in and around Albufeira no matter what age you and/or your family and friends are - we have done it all!

Why Tracy Evans chose Albufeira

Location! Located in a residential side street in historic part of old town Albufeira yet a few minutes walk from the beaches and lively town means we can go out as a family or as individuals.

Comfort! A generous sized apartment (100sqm) with lots of home comforts and without the home clutter.

What makes this apartment unique

APT1 legally registered as Tourist Accommodation.

More Guest Reviews than many other properties - book with confidence.

Local staff available 24/7 to assist you in an emergency.

Located in an area of town which serves the local population and visitors all year round. Old Albufeira never feels like a ghost town!

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four enjoyed our Christmas stay at this apartment. The location couldn't have been better - close to the ocean, a quieter street away from the action and yet a short walk to the old town with all of its shops and restaurants. We were provided with detailed information in advance and our stay went smoothly. The apartment was a good size for four, clean and comfortable. I don't think Albufeira apartments are really built for the winter - we found the place a little cold at times. Some of the appliances had complicated instructions and weren't that easy to figure out how to use. The taxi the owner booked to pick us up from the train station was prompt and friendly.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking time to provide feedback. Sorry we did not have time to write up simple instructions for the new washer/dryer - your family were the first users. Central heating is uncommon in the Algarve so heating does not automatically come on at certain times of the day. Heating is generally via aircon/heating units and portable oil/halogen heaters all of which the apartment has and all of which have to be turned off and on when you are inside. They take 5-10 minutes to heat up a room and the beds all have duvets and blankets for winter use. We are pleased you had a great Christmas in Albufeira and at the apartment! Best wishes for 2015. TE

Great Location, Lovely Apartment

  • 4 of 5
We were very pleased with our vacation. Arrangements before arrival went smoothly including payment and the transfer by taxi from and to the train station. We arrived late in the day – after 9 pm – but still we were met with courtesy and given a tour of the apartment. We were in the 2 bedroom apartment and it is spacious, clean and very nice, exactly as shown in the pictures. We were 4 adults and the layout worked very well. There are 2 balconies, but they are small. We did not use the one off the master bedroom at all and one off the kitchen is noisy because the air conditioning unit is there. It is set up for drying clothes and that’s how we used it. The washing machine is fine. The other appliances – stove, fridge, toaster, kettle – all worked fine. Actually, the apartment has many facilities that we did not use – TV, DVD player, CD player, games, microwave, dishwasher, freezer, oven - so we cannot comment. Also, we did not attempt to use the pool. Somehow something 15 minutes away didn’t appeal. What we did use was the WiFi. It did not work the first night but that was sorted out the next day by the very helpful office staff. Still, the response time was often very, very slow. That was our only reservation.
The location is very good. We did not have a car; we are walkers. You are right in the old town, near the restaurants and hotels, but without any of the noise or rowdiness. There are grocery stores and a pharmacy very close by.
We enjoyed Albuferia and if coming again to the south of Portugal we would come here again. I can recommend the apartment.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! We are pleased you thought the service, apartment and location met your needs. No matter where you go, WiFi in the Algarve is slower than guests may be used to. Money has not been invested in cabling a region where many properties are holiday homes that sit empty for 6+ months of the year, however, WiFi in Albufeira is better than most areas. It is good for many straight forward internet uses i.e. emails, searching, Facebook, Twitter etc. TE
