About Adam Guise-Smith
I live in the Algarve all year round and i have been here since 2006, I am originally from Sheffield in the UK. I sell real estate all over the Algarve as my day to day occupation.
Adam Guise-Smith purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Adam Guise-Smith chose Oura
I bought this apartment to live in, and i furnished it to be my home. Since then I have started a family and we keep this property as our holiday home and rent it out for most of the year,. I choose this apartment it is walking distance to the strip, but not right on top of it! Also, to one beach in five minutes and another two beaches in about 10-15 mins. I also used to walk to the old town, which takes about 20-30 mins. You can catch the bus at the top of the road, or the tourist train, if you don´t fancy walking. You genuinely don´t need a car if you rent my apartment.
What makes this Apartment unique
Small condominium of 20 apartments with a large pool and a garden which is very peaceful. Not over looked by any other apartments. Large apartment, well furnished. Walking distance to everything you would need. Short walk to small supermarket. Five minute walk to the strip.

Perfect location for clubs pubs and old town beaches etc..
Great place to stay..very clean..modern decor. Ideal for the pubs.. clubs..and a food the beach is 8min walk away to which you can walk along to the old town. The apartment location is great as you don't hear the nightlife although it is 5min away.
Highly recommended and we plan to return at some point in near future
Great property in a perfect location.
Had a great 10 night stay in the property. Really large apartment with everything you needed in a home away from home. Lovely relaxing pool area too. Would definitely recommend this property to family & friends.
Fantastic position and very large comfortable apartment.
Great holiday. Lovely area and couldn't ask for an apartment in a better location. Everything on your doorstep but very quiet and peaceful at the apartment.
Loved the apartment. Really central so nothing is too far away at all. The apartment was lovely and clean. We would come back!!
We arrived late August (2 couples) glorious weather, lovely apartment fab location close to all amenities. Absolutely loved the Old Town.
The owner Adam was extremely helpful and let us stay on a little longer as no-one in directly after us enabling us to relax by the pool until our transfer collection at tea time.
We tried so many restaurants with not one bad meal . We found Farnells restaurant on the strip on our last night and had an amazingly cheap night and excellent food. Well worth a visit!
Only fault was a little girl cut her foot in the small pool possibly due to some tiles missing. All remedied with a plaster and I'm sure by next summer that will be fixed.
I arrived a little early and the cleaners were in the apartment, but they were very welcoming (and thorough - the apartment was spotless) and gave me some advice about the area.
It's close to the bottom end of the strip, but also far enough away to be quiet and not bothered by the noise at night.
Apartment was well equipped. I could have probably taken just hand luggage for the week and used the washing machine (worth knowing if you are undecided about taking a big suitcase!).
The walk to the old town took about 20-30 minutes (leisurely stroll pace) and was a little less 'frantic' than the new town strip, but was still busy and open until 4am (at least). Plenty of bars playing live music in the old town as well. The beach bars and restaurants at Praia do Oura are worth a visit as well. Nice and relaxing.
If I ever decide to visit Albufeira again I'd certainly try and book this apartment again.
This apartment offers a great location for anyone looking to have a simple no worries holiday. It is walking distance to everything a holiday maker could want. The beach is at the bottom of the road and the Albufeira strip is at the top. There are loads of restaurants and shops nearby along with supermarkets and walking to the old town takes 10 minutes along the beach. Most of the residents and holiday makers don’t even bother with the expense of renting a car when they come over, as there is a regular bus route nearby and a busy taxi rank. The airport is 20 minutes drive Other Activities: Jeep safari etc.
