Golf details : Centrally located for access to 16 top quality golf courses within half-hour drive of the apartment. Villamoura golf resort 10 minutes drive away, with Quinta Do Lago, San Lorenzo and Vale Do Lobo a further 10 minutes away. Championship courses at Penina and Pinta are 30 minutes drive in opposite direction.

Exploring the Algarve: Jeep Safaris are extremely popular with families who want to spend the day exploring the Portuguese countryside. Children will be delighted with the trip over country terrain and mums and dads will be very happy with the great food and wine that is served up at midday at some quiet rural restaurant followed by a refreshing swim!! If you wish to venture further afield, a visit to Seville in Spain is only a two and a half hour drive from the resort. Coach trips also available - Seville is a beautiful old city full of wonderful architecture, with churches, palaces, and old statues but if you want to go shopping remember that siesta in Seville is from 1pm to 5pm. You can enjoy siesta time drinking Sangria in a street cafe! A lovely way to see Seville is to take one of the many horse and carriage rides, or use the green city tour bus. The walking tour around Triana is excellent. If you like leather bags or great shoes, a visit to Lisbon is also worthwhile.

Activities in Albufeira: Most families happily spend the morning lounging around the pools and then wander to the beach in late afternoon when the sting has gone out of the sun. There are lots of water activities for children & adults alike - banana boats, paragliding, fishing, boating or simply taking the coast walk into the old fishing village of Albufeira, which has managed to retain its friendly atmosphere despite the tourists! Take the Tourist Train, a 40 min trip around town at 3€ for all day/free for under 5s. Portugal is famous for its fish and it's worthwhile visiting some of these traditional restaurants to sample authentic Portuguese fish dishes. Old Albufeira is a charming place to visit at night time as you can see the night lights from all the boats, yachts and cruisers that pass by. The centre of consists of an old Square where musical events are played every night. If shopping is your thing - Algarve Shopping is a must. Local buses run regularly from nearby or a drive takes 15 mins.

ANOTHER WEEK IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
This is nohigw the umteenth time that ourselves or friends have stayed in these apartments. From the enquiry stage to the checking in, the process is smooth and communication with the owners is excellent. The apartment is well located with , very high standard of facilities and furniture. The outdoor pool area is luxurious and peaceful. The week we were there the weather was glorious and never seen a cloud in the sky. Good nights out were enjoyed on the Strip and in The Old Town, with favourite restaurants being The Country Cockerel, Shalom II, Casa Da Fonte and Garfolandia.
Will be booking again in the not too distant future.

PERFECT SUMMER BREAK BOOKING FOR NEXT YEAR

  • 5 of 5
Firstly the communication, flexibility and helpfulness of the owners was second to none. The apartments are exactly as described you literally need nothing down to Tupperware pots!

We had a great time the location is perfect five mins from everything you need, Roberto's two tics away for nandos style food or €5 to the Old Town for a la carte dining.

No problem getting sun beds, pool spotless and area supervised by a really friendly guy. Can't rate highly enough we travelled with five children and they loved it as much as we did. Both apartments are immaculate.

We will definitely be returning I just hope they are not fully booked!

SUBERB APARTMENT / GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We can honestly say that this apartment by far exceeded our expectations and definitely contributed to us we having such a fantastic holiday. From the moment we initially enquired about the apartment, the communication we had with Fred was brilliant. He made the booking very straight forward. On arrival at the apartment we were met by Fred and Patricia's representative David who handed over the keys and explained how everything in the apartment worked.
The whole apartment is maintained to a very high standard. The bedrooms are spacious, a large living room with dining table, Sky TV and DVD player with a good selection of films, a large kitchen supplied with eveything you could want for your stay. The bathroom was a reasonable size, very clean with bath and a great shower. All three balconies looked out over the pool and got the sun all day...it was great to sit on the balcony having breakfast enjoying the morning sun. The pools were immaculate and there was never a shortage of sun loungers. When we went at the end of September, the complex was nice and quiet which allowed for a good night's sleep.
The apartments are a 10 minute walk to the Strip and about 15-20 minutes to the beach (which are beautiful and sandy), but don't let that put you off, it really isn't that far. We walked to the Old Town on a couple of occasions, which took about 30 minutes (or taxi for 4 euros), it has a different feel to the strip, with it's narrow back streets and plenty of shops and restraunts.
There are a couple of supermarkets near by, both on Estrada de Santa Eulália, the larger one at the very bottom of Estrada de Santa Eulália, next to Oura Praia Hotel, has everything you could possibly want and we found it to be the cheaper of the two.
There is a fantastic restraurant that we can highly recommend called Paulu's, which is at the very bottom of the Strip on Rua Ramalho Ortigão. They do a 3 course set menu which includes large beer or half a bottle of wine (very nice), bread basket and sardine pate, large side sald and either t bone steak (€17.50 ), fillet steak (€19.50) or a full sea bream (€13.50) each served with chips or crushed potaoes, with a dessert to finish.
In all what a fantastic holiday, and knowing that we had such an amazing apartment was the icing on the cake!
Definitely going to book again.
Thanks again to Fred and Patricia

VERY IMPRESSED

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in 1B and with doubt the apartment looks far better than the photos portray. 3 adults and 3 kids stayed there very comfortably. I cannot think of anything else Fred can do to improve the apartment.

One of the previous comments stated "it's a home away from home" and they were spot on. Even managed to get the free wi-fi from Robertos.

For those seafood lovers you have to try 'Restaurante Ze do Peixe Assado which is opposite the American Diner.

GREAT HOLIDAY APARTMENTS

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from our stay in these wondetful apartments and loved it! Our holiday party consisted of myself, my partner and 3 kids and our friends and their 2 children who stayed in the second apartment. The apartments were perfect for us and our friends in that they were spacious, modern and maintained to a high standard as well as being situated in a lovely complex. All of the facilities described were available including air con, washing machine, dishwasher and DVD player. (Very good DVD films were also available which the kids loved). The location of these two apartments we found to be one of the best in the entire complex. The complex has great pool facilities and a handful of cafes/restaurants within 2 minutes walking distance for refreshments/food including Roberto's which we loved! Robertos also had free wifi!! The strip was only a 5-10 min walk away and we travelled to the old town by bus within 20 minutes on a number of occasions. The bus stop was just outside the complex and ran every half hour. Everyone we met was very friendly and there was a really nice family feel about the apartments. We hope to repeat our stay at the same time next year.

Car: not necessary

Albufeira, Portugal's most popular resort, has been described as the “Tourist Capital” of the Algarve, spreading from the old town both east and west along the coast, with its sandy coves & golden beaches attracting all ages,from families with young kids to retired couples. There is something for everyone in this sprawling, low-rise holiday resort, which retains its old world charm in narrow alleyways behind the new hip and happening Rue Candido dos Reis (the bar street) which at night is a must. The very lively “Strip”, as it is referred to locally, in the east of the town, runs from the Montechoro Hotel down to the Praia da Oura, and is lined with dozens of cafes, restaurants and bars. In contrast, the Old Town of Albufeira has a special charm all of its own. Algarve golf courses, Algarve Shopping, sandy beaches such as Praia da Oura beach and Fishermans' Beach, Grande Real Santa Eulalia Resort, Real Belavista Hotel & Spa, Globe roundabout, and Bull Ring are all easy to reach.

Other Activities: Safari trips into the Portuguese countryside, water parks nearby, boat trips along the Algarve coast, markets in local towns, day trips to Seville
