About the property

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. This fabulous holiday development is superbly located close to fine sandy beaches (Praia da Oura only 20mins away), bars, restaurants, the Old Town & golf courses, yet Faro airport is only 40 mins away.

Golf details : Centrally located for access to 16 top quality golf courses within half-hour drive of the apartment. 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.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Me and my boyfriend stayed in May 2017 for 10 nights. We were so impressed with the apartment, it was very modern and clean and the location is perfect with only a 5 minute walk to the new town. We would definitely book again when we return to Albufeira!

My friends and I booked the apartment 2B. We had a lovely vacation. Everything was clear and when we arrived in Faro, we had a transfer to the location. Wendy was waiting for us and showed the apartment. It was nice and clean and we specially were very happy with the kitchen, it included everything! With the swimming pool as view the vacation was complete. It was very relaxing and Fred and Patricia were perfect hosts. Highly recommend this place!

Fantastic apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for me, my partner and two teens. It was very spacious and really clean with everything you could want from a home from home. The three balconies overlooking the pool, gardens and across to the sea are lovely.

The location is great with bars, restaurants and supermarkets all near by. The complex is just far away enough four the nightlife to be relaxing but handy if you want to join in.

We would definitely recommend a stay here and hope to return.

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
