About Catherine & David

We are David & Catherine & have been married for 15 yrs.’, we have two teenage Daughters , for the last 10 yrs.’ we have dreamed of owning our own holiday home in the sun ,somewhere we can go on yearly holidays & eventually retire to a warmer climate. We have looked at main land Spain, Majorca & all the Canary Islands searching for the right place, but nowhere felt right like home.

We eventually decided to have a change from Spain & try Portugal as we had heard such good things about it, we have been coming to Portugal now for the past 2 yrs.’ & fell in love , The old town is charming and a real treat to walk around the Beautiful beaches the Friendly people, low price of living & warm Mediterranean climate with over 300 days of sun a year ,. We decided to buy an apartment in Albufeira to hopefully one day retire here, & I can say it has been the best thing we have done. We really hope you like our apartment as we have tried to make like home with all our extra touches, We come all year round and we love it. We hope you will too.

Super situation on the complex, beautiful gardens and views.

  • 5 of 5

Property well appointed in a peaceful area. Lovely, spacious apartment, clean and well equipped. Loved the personal touches supplied by the owners. Would have been more convenient if we had hired a car, otherwise need to use the Club bus and/or taxis. Pools set in beautiful garden settings and the apartment is not far from any of them. The owners could not have been more helpful. Would go again.

#287Catalina/Clube Albufeira was a hit for us!

  • 5 of 5

Super stay in a lovely apt. We had everything we needed in a well equipped and nicely decorated apt, notably the washing machine and the parasols/ inflatable rings etc that past visitors leave for the next (we also left footballs and kids inflatables that others can enjoy). Midweek towel/linen changes was unexpected but very welcome. Comfy kingsize for Mum/Dad. The resort itself was a big hit with kids who got to experience each of the 4 pool areas (then fought over which ones to return to!) O Pavilhao had lovely food, did not get chance to sample Casa Azul.

Ideal apartment in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was ideal for our needs and the put-me-up bed a welcome bonus as we'd expected a sofa bed for the 5th person.

Our late arrival caused no issues due to the 24hr reception and Catherine dealt with our lack of diligence on checkout fantastically!

Ideally situated between three of the pools on site and with parking 10m away it made for a very relaxing place for our week. The cafe by the pool, - Pergola was good for drinks but a little slow for food - not that it mattered too much. Casa Azul restaurant was fantastic and the food was beautifully presented and went down a treat.

The weather was fantastic and very hot but the air-con coped admirably and the wine fridge worked overtime!

We explored lots of beaches (it wasn't our first time in the Algarve) with Fisherman's Beach being a bit too busy for us and with so many more rugged / atmospheric beaches so close by car we went for them instead of the concrete backdrop!

Thank you for a lovely week

Phil & Rebekah & Isaac & Jude & Sam

Lovely apartment. Great resort.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 11 days in this apartment @ Clube Albufeira, and we thought it was great. We travelled with a 2 year old and a 5 year old. The villa was well set up for them too.
