Spectacular apartment with paranamic views

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a nine night stay in this fabulous penthouse apartment. It's our third visit to Albuferia and by far the best. The views from the roof top terrace were spectacular. We could watch the sun rise and then again in the evening we had the luxury of watching the sun set over The old tow. The apartment was immaculate and the location was ideal. Only a five minute walk to the 'strip' although we preferred the old town. Sir Harrys in the square was our favourite as they had live music every night. Just outside of the apartments was a lovely restaurant called Chilli Pepper. The beer garden at the rear also had a pool whiich you could use at your leisure. The food and service were outstanding. There is also a very large swimming pool and surrounding area which are very well maintained. Two minitues walk to the beach and you could even walk along to the old town. Our whole trip was effortless with the support of Maria who even arranged airport transport. I would defiantly recommend this property for anyone looking for luxury, spectacular views and a fab location. Can't wait to return

Apartment was spotlessly clean. Ideal position. We stayed in apartment 5 plenty off room for 4 people. Lovely view off front entrance, view off town and slight view off sea. Outside dining area was lovely and modern. Ideal for sitting out and relaxing. All modern facilities, dishwasher and washing machine, drying rail outside which was perfect. Can't fault the apartment or owners Maria and Colin Douglas. Excellent service, very attentive and also arranged airport transport which was stress free! Very enjoyable stay.

What’s so special?................With location being one of the keys to a great holiday, it is worth noting that the location here is truly remarkable, it boasts spectacular sea-views of Albufeira bay and the Old Town.

It's only a 2 minute stroll through the private gated access to the beach. A leisurely 15 minutes stroll along the beach takes you into the Old Town of Albufeira with it’s quaint cobbled streets and amazing cuisine.

The famous buzzing ‘Strip’ is only a 5 minute walk!

Golf: The Algarve was awarded 'Established Golf Destination Of The Year 2006' by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators.

There are 3 local golf courses a short drive away, the closest being a 5 minute drive away.

These are Salgados (18 holes), Pine Cliffs (9 holes) Balaia Golf (9 holes).

Some of the other world class golf courses in Vilamoura include Victoria, Millenium, Pinhal, and Old Course which are approximately 15-20 minutes drive away

In addition to the many courses in the central and western Algarve, there are also numerous high-class courses in the eastern Algarve and nearby Costa de la Luz in Spain. Amongst these are signature courses from two of the world's greatest names in golf; Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus, and Quinta Do Vale designed by Seve Ballesteros. Both of these courses can be reached from the apartment in around an hour.
