Close to beaches, bars, restaurants, golf & ideal for the Old Town & The Strip

New 2 bedroom luxurious & beautifully furnished 1+1 apartments with air con, Brazilian hardwood floors and fully tiled bathroom with vanity unit and mirror. Near Albufeira centre, & only 2 mins away from the Globes roundabout & Bullring, the apartment overlooks the sites largest shared adult & child pools in a gated condominium that features beautifully landscaped areas planted in shrubs & trees. All south facing, the spacious main bedroom, lounge/dining area and kitchen are bathed in sunlight, & include patio doors with electrically operated shutters. Stylish kitchen fitted with Danish HTH units, marble worktops & Siemens appliances add to the quality, and the apartment has cool basement parking with lift access.

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.

Excellent family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at this apartment, my family and I always enjoy ourselves in albufeira and have a great time at the apartment and swimming pool.

The apartments are very clean and the owners are very fast to reply and resolve any problems and very friendly.

The apartment overlooks the middle of the large main pool in the parque da Corcovado complex and also has a smaller baby pool next to you it where we spent a lot of time with the kids going between both pools.

The apartment is close enough to the strip and far enough away from any noise. If you can't be bothered going out for the night I highly recommend the chicken in Roberto's which is in the complex.

Lovely apartment in the best location of complex

  • 5 of 5

A great apartment which had everything we needed for our first holiday abroad with a four year old and a two year old. The location of the apartment overlooks a large swimming pool and smaller toddler pool with lovely, well maintained gardens. It all felt very safe and secure which was important to us. A short walk across the road is the Dubliner pub which was great for the children offering good food, various shows and a park outside. Fred and Patricia have been excellent throughout the whole booking process and have answered all manner of questions for us on e-mail! Would definitely recommend the apartment for a family with young children.

Best Block in Corcovada

  • 4 of 5

We are a family with 2 young kids. The apt. suited us perfectly as when not in the pool the kids could sit out on the balcony to look at it :) Front and centre of the Parque de Corcovada you have a view of the whole complex. It's the 3rd different apt we have stayed in and also the best. No noise from the busy road if on the other side. Apt. is spotless and everything you need for a family stay. Fred & Patricia were very courteous and a pleasure to deal with. We will be back next year for sure.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was my 2nd stay at this apartment and like the first time, it didn't disappoint. Arrangements to obtain the keys to the apartment were clearly described beforehand, and went to plan on the day. The interior is tastefully decorated with quality fittings and appliances. The tv is connected directly to the Internet and uses an app to gain access to uk free view tv channels but I had an issue with this so resorted to using my iPad instead. Also, I could not get the aircon/heating devices to warm up the apartment in the evening so clearer instructions should be available for these. However, these issues did not detract from the lovely feel to the place, and the convenience of this apartment to local bars, restaurants, and The Strip/New Town. Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to enjoy a holiday in this part of the Algarve.

Nearest Airport
47 Kilometres
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
