We can arrange airport transfers for you with a fully licenced company who speak English. You can also use the same company for local runs, visits to the theme parks or scenic trips out. We can also arrange Car Hire with a company who provide all inclusive prices (no hidden extras) - car hire is not essential but useful if you want to explore for a few days during your stay. What we advise is that, if you do want to explore some of the nice scenery and unspoilt beaches, then take a car for 3-5 days and relax for the initial and ultimate part of your holiday.
We would like to add that this property is not only suitable for summer lets, but also winter lets because of the heating, woodburner, provision of electric blankets and duvets,one level (for the elderly or small children) and close proximity to the village. The Giro (city bus) stops outside the Condominium and the train station is less than 10 minutes walk.. Long winter lets are negotiable in price.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Eileen & Paul, many thanks for your warm welcome and a wonderful stay in your apartment. Really was a home from home with great weather as a bonus. Will really recommend you to our family & friends. Hope to see you next year.
Larry, Karina, James & Sean from Dublin
We are a family of 4. I am from Dublin, Ireland and my husband Paul is from Middlesex in England. We have been living in Algarve for over 30 years and our daughters Emma and Katie were born here. We also took time out and spent 3 years living in Germany from 1996 - 1999. The apartment was our family home for 6 years, but at the end of 2010 we moved to a house with the space needed for our extended family ie grown up daughters, 3 dogs and 3 cats. Apart from looking after the apartment, I run my own Property Management Company. My husband Paul is a PGA Golf Professional - if you are golfer, you can pre-book individual or group lessons/clinics on the driving range or on the course. Paul teaches in English, Portuguese and German. We live only a few hundred metres from the apartment and do our utmost to make sure you have a happy & memorable holiday. The Condominium where we live has a Childrens Park and Putting Green which can be used by our guests.
The location is ideal for those who like to live within the Portuguese community but at the same time within easy reach of Albufeira Centre. It is just a few minutes walk to the village of Ferreiras with all its amenities and just a 5 minute drive to The Strip or to the Old Town which can be reached by cheap local taxi or taking The Giro (City Bus) which stops outside the Condominium.
The apartment is very cosy, homely and rather different because it has its own private garden and has many extras making it feel like home from home. The large shared pool is gated/hedged which makes it secure for young children. In off peak times, you can sometimes find yourself with the large pool all to yourself. The Condominium is also enclosed for added safety. Everyone can benefit from the atmosphere within the complex due to the mixture in age groups ranging from the International to the professional Portuguese families, some who own holiday homes and some who live there.
