Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Albufeira Town and Marina - OR-A1E Encosta da Orada
Large two bedroom apartment with sunny balcony facing the Albufeira Marina
This beautifully spacious 2 bedroom apartment has a wonderfully large balcony off the living room, with spectacular panoramic sea and coastal views and breath-taking sunsets. The balcony offers shade and sun throughout the day and with 4 sun loungers and an outdoor table and chairs, it will be hard to tear yourself away from this spectacular setting. Perched on the hill above the Old Town and Albufeira Marina, Encosta da Orada provides self-catering luxury accommodation at its very best. The twin beds can be made up into a second double bed, if required.
Encosta da Orada provides a wonderful setting for an unforgettable holiday, with spectacular sea views from the apartments and set in beautiful tropical landscaped gardens with sparkling swimming pools cascading down. The Old Town is a 5 – 8 minute walk away and Fisherman’s Beach is a 10 minute walk away. There is a bus stop right outside the complex and buses to theme parks pass nearby.
The nearest supermarkets are in Páteo, about 5 minutes walk away and in Cerro Grande, 10 minutes walk away, both open 7 days a week. The popular Arte Bar in Cerro Grande is next door and is famous for its Sunday barbecues and lovely outdoor seating area. The large supermarkets and hypermarkets are in the centre of Albufeira and a short bus ride or drive away.
The Old Town of Albufeira is one of the most popular tourist hotspots in the Algarve, with street entertainers and market stalls, restaurants, shops and bars spilling onto the narrow cobbled streets and a wonderful atmosphere. There is plenty of live music, karaoke and free summer concerts on the beautiful beaches, as well as various water sports.
The Algarve has some of the finest sandy beaches in Europe and Albufeira has several Blue Flag beaches to enjoy along with interesting sidewalk cafés, shops and restaurants. With over 300 days of sunshine a year, you can laze on the beaches and soak up the sun and savour the fresh mouth-watering food on offer at the beach restaurants.
There are many water-sports to be enjoyed on the sparkling blue ocean, such as water-skiing, para sailing, scuba-diving, cruises, jet-skiing, dolphin watching, cave exploring, deep-sea fishing, sailing and much more.
Albufeira is located in the Central Algarve and is ideally placed for visiting Zoomarine, the wonderful aqua-theme park with its dolphin interaction program; the water-parks, such as Slide & Splash and Aqualand; Algarve Shopping with its varied shops and cinemas; Adega do Cantor, Sir Cliff Richard’s Vineyard; Guia, the home of chicken piri-piri; and Albufeira and Vilamoura Marinas, all a 10 – 20 minute drive away.
