About Mark Newton

We are a busy family with 3 children and look forward to our holidays in Portugal which are always filled with lovely sunny days, by the pool, at the beach or on some adventure somewhere - many a trip has been made to Zoo marine, the water parks and dolphin watching on a boat ride or just a visit to a local area on the Algarve. We often visit local restaurants which offer top quality food and ambiance at really good value prices. We have had lovely evenings spent at the beach restaurants or in the vibrant bustly Albufeira, walking through the old cobbled streets in the old town. It really is a great place for families.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the lovely apartment, can't fault it, ideal for our family! Kids loved the upstairs unit. Pool was a winner! We went to most beaches nearby, our favourite was Praia des Arrifes, which has a gem of a restauraunt - best kept secret of the Algarve, and only 10 minute stroll away! We will be back, Thank you!

FANTASTIC HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5

This was the 3rd time we have stayed at this apartment and have already booked our 4th. Fabulous location, not too far from the Airport. Easy walking distance to 3 different beaches, all scrupulously clean with beach bars and restaurants/cafes. Excellent local restaurants including Praia Grande, our all time fav. The apartment is extremely clean and very well laid out for holiday makers with all the facilities you could need. Great BBQ on one of the patios with an excellent pool and tennis courts. All communal areas are well maintained and clean. I would recommend this apartment and we love going back time and time again.

GREAT hOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have rented this apartment. The first time was the 11th--18th December 2013 when we decided to have a break before Christmas, on this occasion the flight was an hour late and we lost our way in the dark however we were met by a charming couple who had put the heating on in case we were cold and after making sure we knew how everything worked insisted before they went home guiding us to the local supermarket which although it was late at night was still open. We were delighted with the apartment, very clean and spacious. The owners fine taste in the quality of the furnishings in the interior and the both outside terraces was excellent .We realised we had found for us a ideal retreat. The second floor terrace is a sun trap ideal for those who wish to sun bathe and is completely private. This time we were four in number so we used the second floor bedrooms which are ideal for families. The outside pool and surroundings were very clean and even in December are cleaned daily as are the entrance hall and lifts. The local restaurants of which there are many offer a variety of cuisine at reasonable prices. The complex has a pool and tennis courts for the energetic, but what we like is the peace and quiet at this time of the year. The owners were very good to agreeing to our request to hire the apartment for 10 days and while they maintain the apartment to this high standard we intend to return. Thank you, a delight to share your wonderful apartment .The Villiers family Hampton

Great place, large apartment

Apartment is very spacious and has everything you need. Walking distance from my new favourite restaurant over looking the sea, and great to have the tennis courts too. Being high up gives you a nice view. Definitely coming back to stay here.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is as described in the advert, it is clean, well decorated, equipped and spacious. Especially loved sitting on the balcony and relaxing on the roof top sitting area.

The grounds are very clean and secure. The pool was lovely and again very clean. We had short walks to local restaurants, all local restaurants are family run with great food and drink. The beaches near by are walkable, but you have to be an able walker.

The apartment is situated nearby lots of interesting places and other beaches a short drive away.

I would highly recommend this apartment and would definitely book to stay again.

Excellent Value for Money

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the apartment twice. We loved our first visit so much and went back again and thinking of going again next year.

The apartment has everything you need and is definitely big enough for two families. The balcony seating area is lovely. Pool was lovely and good cliff top walks on your doorstop.

Excellent variety of local restaurants.

We liked to location because it was near enough to the marina and old town, but far enough to have a relaxing holiday.

Fantastic familiy holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our children and the mother in law this year in July. We had an absolutely lovely time. Fantastic location near amazing beaches, amazing cliff top walks (suitable for all our children 6/8/10/13 and granny!), fantastic beach restaurants. The local restaurants and bars were extremely reasonably priced and the quality was excellent. Very family friendly area. We went into Albufeira old town 3 times which is great if you want a buzzy evening with buzzy bars, shops, restaurants, entertainers. Zoo marine is a 10 minute drive away which really was brilliant - had a water park/ shows/ zoo we couldn't believe how much there was on offer, was so good we went back a second day. Albufeira marina was a 20 minute walk away where we got a dolphin boat, saw quite literally dozens of dolphins, after we had a drink in the buzz marina. The apartment was super clean, very up to date and had everything you needed, nice balconies, bbq, sun terrace all with nice sun bathing furniture. My husband had to work a bit and the WI-FI was a god send! We were a big family and the layout of the apartment was ideal. perfect for families/ big families/ extended families and 2 families. The pool was super clean and my children got to know other very nice children around the pool, it was a really nice communal setting, all areas were cleaned daily and there were lush gardens all immaculate. Lots of extra things in the apartment kept the children occupied (tennis rackets/ dvds/ games). I would definitly recommend this apartment.
