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.

What a great location, apartment was very clean, fresh and had everything in it and more! Great view from apartment right onto the pool, always plenty of sun beds, pool area and grounds keep very clean and tidy and great security at all times. Lots of places to eat and things to do, went to Aqua show water park, great place to spend the day with kids! Wendy was also very helpful and a credit to the running of your apartment and airport transfers! Would definitely come back to this apartment again.
Rented this apartment for 8 nights and really is a good choice. The cleanliness and equipment in the apartment is top notch. The complex as a whole was lovely.
It is plenty big enough for a family of four with 2 separate bedrooms, bathroom, living area and fully equipped kitchen.
Communication from the owner was excellent and the property manager Wendy was also friendly and accommodating on arrival.
The apartment is in a lovely spot in the centre block of 3 overlooking the pool from the 3 balconies.
There is a couple of bars and food places on your doorstep and several more within 5-10 minutes walk.
The strip is about 10-15 minutes walk depending on your pace.
If you want to stay in this area of albufeira then this apartment is highly recommended.
Super toller Poolblick
Wir hatten einen tollen Aufenthalt im super ausstaffierten und gepflegten Appartment. Wir genossen ebenso die sehr toll eingerichtete und mit viel Liebe dekorierte Wohnung, wie die täglich von uns benutzte Spülmaschine. Der Blick zum sehr gepflegten Pool während des Essens war bezaubernd, aber auch die anschließenden Schwimmstunden haben wir sehr genossen. Nur das Schlaf-Sofa (für die 5. Person) war schwierig aufzuklappen und nicht ganz so bequem wie die restlichen vier Betten. Aber ansonsten kommen wir sehr gerne wieder in diese sehr schön eingerichtete Wohnung mit super tollen Poolblick zurück.

A fantastic peaceful holiday base in Albufeira!
We have recently returned from a week in Patricia & Fred’s apartment n Corcovada, and we had a superb break in the sun – just what we needed!
The Apartment is located in a modern Apartment complex in Corcovada, a quiet residential area that is within walking distance of all amenities and attractions within the New Town area – The Strip; Oura Beach; Santa Eulalia Beach, but far enough away from the main entertainment centre to maintain its peaceful environment.
The block is safe and secure, with an outside security door, and a lift or stairs to the 3 floors, of which we were on the 2nd. It is also maintained in immaculate condition, both inside and outside. The oval swimming pool is a great size, with plentiful sunbeds, with an adjacent children’s paddling pool and showers, all set in well maintained grounds.
The Apartment itself was fantastic. Being south facing, it benefits from sun throughout the day, and with 3 balconies to choose from, in addition to the swimming pool area, everyone will find sufficient space to relax and soak up the sun.
Patricia and Fred have put a great deal of thought and effort into ensuring that the Apartment is very well equipped – in fact, everything you are ever likely to need during your stay is there. The spacious main bedroom has tons of built-in storage, and the second twin bedroom is neatly partitioned off from the living room with sliding doors, and a bed settee is available in the living room if you have more than 4 in your party. The kitchen has everything you need for a self catering break, but we tended to eat out in the evenings, so only used the facilities for breakfast and the occasional lunchtime. The bathroom has a large bath, with a powerful shower over it, together with a toilet, bidet and wash basin.
During our stay, we had the unexpected pleasure of meeting Patricia and Fred, as they went above and beyond our expectations to drive from their Apartment in Spain to help resolve a problem with the streaming TV box, which had been caused by a power outage during a particularly violent storm the area experienced on the morning we arrived. Fred managed to successfully resolve the issue for us, which was greatly appreciated, and both are such lovely, sociable people.
This was our first visit to the Apartment, but we fully intend to return in the future, and would unreservedly recommend it to anyone looking for a spacious holiday base in Albufeira, away from the noise and bustle of the Strip or the Old Town.
Lovely Apartment, Great location
We have just returned from your lovely apartment. I just wanted to thank you and say that your apartment is absolutely amazing. We have stayed in many apartments each year and we both agreed that your apartment is the best one by far. It was very reasonable priced, immaculately clean, well stocked with everything we should need, great position on the complex and within easy walking distance of bars and restaurants.
Fred organised our transfers and on arrival we were met by their local contact and taken to the apartment and shown around.
Enjoyable Holiday in Corcovada
We love this apartment having been 4 times already, apartment was clean and well maintained, very comfortable with all british channels on the tv. Corcovada is situated near restaurants and pubs with bus stop over the road that takes you into the old town. Fred and Patricia are really easy to communicate with and will answer any questions that you have. The only gripe that we had, was that extra bed sheets would have come in handy as we were staying for a month, also a brush to sweep up. all in all a really good holiday.
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
