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.

Super property in prestige condition, beautiful outlook from balconies.From booking on line to departure owners were very helpful and prompt to respond to any queries. No hesitation in recommending this property to friends and intend to return again in winter
We had a relaxing, quiet week in January. Apartment is well equipped and close to all the restaurants we get to when in Albufeira.
I would recommend and found dealing with both, Fred and Patricia very easy and professional.
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.
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.
The place was perfect and clean. Plenty of utensils and all you need. The apartment block seems to have the best pool so delighted with our stay. Patricia and Fred were a pleasure to deal with and always replied to emails. Would totally recommend this apartment.
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.
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
