We have been travelling to Portugal all our married life and developed close and long lasting friendships with locals within the Algarve area. Our properties our managed by one of these friends, a British couple Billy and Lorraine Hamilton who have been living and working in the Algarve for some years now and proved themselves invaluable when organising apartment maintenance plus airport transfers for our guests. We have also forged great relationships with local restaurateurs and can recommend lots of lovely places to eat, just ask when booking, we will be happy to provide you with literature on all local interests such as water parks, day trips and beaches.
We have been travelling to the Algarve for over 30 years and although we have visited other countries we always look forward to returning to Portugal.
We bought our 2 properties in 2006 a 1 and 2 bed apartment new and of plan, the reason we chose Parque da Corcovada and Albufeira was for its central location
within the Algarve plus the apartments are perfectly positioned in Albufeira and within easy walking distance to all amenities. Both our apartments are ground floor and were chosen for their ease of access, large south facing terraces with no small balconies. Both terraces are fully equipped with their own sun beds, loungers, parasols and patio table and chairs. They also have the added advantage of small well maintained gardens.
When staying at our properties you will benefit from a private complex with no club reps or distractions just luxurious accommodation in a quiet and well managed condominium. The complex has its own security, cool underground parking for those of you who hire cars and like somewhere safe and secure to keep it.
Both apartments are fully equipped with everything you will need for a safe and relaxing holiday. Sun beds plus loungers, parasols, beach/pool toys for small children, DVD player with a large collection of DVDs, there is also an on site DVD and games store available to guests (small deposit required when renting payable in store).
By far the most visited area in Alufeira is 'the strip' this street has lots of bars and restaurants, is only a 5 mins walk from our properties.
"The stay at the property was excellent. You could not ask for anything more in the apartment, it had everything we needed. It is ideally located for a walk to the 'Strip' or a short taxi ride to the Old Town. The air-conditioning was a Godsend considering the mini heatwave that occurred during our stay The apartment was clean and well kept and is by far the best accommodation we have stayed in during our travels. We will definitely be recommending this apartment to friends.
Hi Barbara Firstly may I say a very big thank you to you both. The apartment was fabulous with everything I could have wished for. The location is brilliant and very convenient to everywhere. I very nearly did not come home Billy was great with the transfers etc. The people in Portugal were very friendly and the weather was great. Thanks for everything. Eileen
We will definitely return and would have no reservations in recommending the apartment to anyone looking for luxury accommodation. Many thanks Ray.
Apartment backing onto a motorway trucks and cars traveling all night long the noise was frighting no sleep any night kitchen and floors groggy
Won't be back to this appartment
We were very happy with the apartment and great outside space. We had everything we needed and plenty of room. The location was great for us, 5 mins from the strip and a nice walk to the old town when we ventured further. We were able to stay later on check out day which we very much appreciated as we were not flying until 8pm. We would be more than happy to stay again if we return to Portugal.
Lovely modern apartment with everything you could need. Comfortable beds, quiet air con. The TV didn't have many UK channels but that wasn't a problem for us. The wifi was of a good speed and connected easily on the patio. Large patio but didn't feel too overlooked, only a few steps from the pool which always had plenty of free sunbeds. Had the sun on the patio from 8am until 5pm, longer by the pool. Mini market close by, strip maybe a 5 min walk. Please be aware it is by a main road so there is traffic noise although you are not looking directly at the road because of the gardens. The apartment is very secure with electric shutters. I would visit again.
Just returned from another fabulous holiday at this excellent apartment and once again it was perfect, as described it is fully equipped and finished to an exceptionally high standard with all the mod con’s you need for a home away from home with sun. It has air-con, english television, dvd/cd players and the wi-fi is a real bonus.
The spacious patio has sun loungers, umbrella, table and chairs for outdoor dining and is a real suntrap in the mornings, shaded in the afternoon which was lovely if you wanted a break from the strong sun, the gardens and outside space have recently been fully landscaped and are spotless and well maintained. Electric window shutters mean the apartment is totally secure.
The pool area is quiet with a good sized pool with separate childrens pool and ample sun loungers for guests at any time of the day.
This apartment is situated in an ideal location, just a short walk to the Strip, beach, restaurants, supermarkets or a 10 minute taxi ride to the old town.
Stephen & Barbara make the booking process simple and straightforward and are always contactable by phone or email.
Would highly recommend this holiday apartment to couples, families and all those looking for a relaxing break. (we will certainly be back)
Lester & Fiona Ogilby, Bangor
The apartment was exactly as described on the listing and even more impressive in reality. It is extremely light, airy and spacious and had that 'penthouse' feel to it, such was its size. It contained everything you would need in your own home, right down to a sewing kit, which came in really handy for those unexpected buttons that pop off occasionally. The location is great and the apartment affords such privacy that you can sunbathe on the terrace without any prying eyes. The customer service was excellent and contact numbers were provided, in case of any questions or concerns (didn't need them). The owner has thought of just about everything in preparation for welcoming guests. I can easily understand why they return year after year. You know what you're going back to. I would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone. Loved it!!!!
This is a truly 5 star apartment in a wonderful location. The modern apartment is beautifully furnished and provides everything you could possibly require. The owners have went to exceptional lengths to provide their visitors with all you could possibly need or want from a holiday apartment. Its ground floor location is a huge bonus as you can relax or dine on the huge patio area with all your needs just a few steps away. The spacious pools (childrens and adult) are about 70 metres from the apartment and are kept immaculately. It is in a great location - a 4/5 minute walk to The Strip or a 4/5 minute taxi ride to the beautiful Old Town (about 5 Euros). So convenient to all Albufeira can offer yet located in peaceful and quite complex. As a family we have stayed at this apartment for several consecutive years and are in the process of booking this years stay. If you are looking for a 5 star, quality apartment in a prime location you have found it!!

Albufeira has been, since 1960, the first town in the Algarve to be developed for international tourism due to its 23 stunning white sandy beaches, to the miles of beautiful red stoned cliffs and the rugged coves. The region was elected "Established golf destination of the year 2006" by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators.
Albufeira offers far more than just sun and sea as it still retains much of a small-town charm. Each night fishing boats set off from the beach, returning with fresh fish to be sold in the local markets. Bars and restaurants still sell authentic food and Portuguese wine at reasonable prices. The colours, flavours and aromas create unique moments of gastronomic tradition, supplying the necessary energy to all sporting opportunities, mainly in the golf courses designed by international masters, and the water sports supported by a state-of-art marina. This is the portrait of an Algarve that awaits you all year round.
Further notes for golfers: Being centrally located, Parque da Corcovada is a convenient base for golfers. The five Vilamoura courses are only 15 minutes drive away. Balaia, Salgados and Pine Cliffs a mere 5 minutes drive. Other great golf courses like Quinta do Lago, S. Lorenzo and Vale do Lobo or Vila Sol are just an easy half-hour drive away. See www.algarvegolf.net/courses/index.htm for details of discounted green fees and package bookings.
Algarve shopping Centre is a must see, it has a large selection of shops, bowling alleys, food hall with many restaurants and 9 screen cinema, many films are in English.
