5* LUXURY APARTMENTS WITH SPECTACULAR SEA VIEWS & POOL NEAR OLD TOWN & FISHERMANS BEACH ALBUFEIRA

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Albufeira Town and Marina - Encosta da Orada Apartments

Self catering holiday rentals with swimming pool & tennis court

These luxury self-catering holiday apartments are situated in Encosta da Orada, a beautiful luxury complex completed in 2008, with established lush tropical landscaped gardens, and sparkling blue infinity swimming pools with cascading waterfalls. Breathtaking sunsets and magnificent panoramic sea views over Albufeira Marina towards Sao Rafael and Gale can be enjoyed whilst sipping sundowners from every apartment that we offer for holiday rentals in Encosta da Orada. The Old Town with its vibrant nightlife and eclectic feel and Fisherman's Beach, so loved by holiday makers who flock to Albufeira, is just a short walk away. Whether a romantic or family holiday, these beautifully furnished apartments are extremely well-equipped for self catering holidays and will provide for an unforgettable vacation.

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 to the supermarket 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.

Encosta da Orada is on the western side of Albufeira, close to the Dolphin Roundabout on the hill between the Albufeira Marina and the Old Town. The Giro circular bus and ‘tourist train’ both pass nearby at regular intervals. Some of the best sandy beaches in the Algarve are within a 5 – 10 minute drive, including Galé, Sao Rafael, Castelo, Evaristo and Salgados.

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, parasailing, 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. A little further afield you will find Almancil Karting with its fun-filled race-tracks.

The Central Algarve has some of the finest golf courses in Portugal, including Salgados golf course just 5 minutes away; Balaia and Pine Cliffs golf courses, which are 15 minutes drive from Encosta da Orada and the 6 championship golf courses of Vilamoura at 20 minutes away.

Our information folder is packed with restaurant recommendations, activities, sports, sightseeing and golf info, as well as public transport and so much more.

excellent

  • 5 out of 5
This is a very nice appartment with magnifique vieuws to the ocean.
Algarve Getaways had organised everything perfect: the taxi, the wifi,
the return of the money after the holiday. We will certainly come back to this appartment with Algarve Getaways.

Great apartment close to the beach with a pool

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was lovely and modern with a great view over the marina and out to sea. There is everything you would need in the apartment if you wish to self cater but there are many great restaurants within a short walking distance either or on the way to or at the Marina or in the old town. It takes around half an hour to walk to the old town at a leisurely pace where you will find the town beach, which is large and clean (there is also a shorter walk down the hill avoiding the main town). It is a great place to go to relax either around the pool, on the balcony or at the beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I am so pleased that you enjoyed this beautiful apartment with its spectacular sea views. I expect that you stopped on your leisurely stroll down to the Old Town, to take in the stunning views along the way. Walking straight down to the Old Town and Fisherman's Beach, should not take you more than 8 - 10 minutes but the views over the town and bay are very special. There are some wonderful restaurants around the Old Town and Albufeira Marina and we have an Information Folder in each apartment with a Recommended Restaurant Guide and lots of details on the many water-sports and activities you can enjoy on your holiday in the Algarve. Best wishes, Barbara at Algarve Getaways

The property was very modern and well maintained. Facilities were excellent and it was a pleasure to stay there on holiday. Exactly what we expected from the description. The Factors were competent, met us the Apt and explained all we wanted to know about the complex and the Apt. We would recommend the Apt for a great holiday. Albufeira has a abundance of great restaurants and bars.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 out of 5
We booked this apartment at short notice through Algarve Getaways on the recommendation of friends. They spoke very highly of both the service provided by Algarve Getaways and the standard and facilities of the apartments.
We were delighted to find that their recommendations were spot on.
The apartment was a real home from home with everything catered for and was spotlessly clean.
I would not hesitate to recommend both Algarve Getaways for their very professional service and the apartment to prospective renters.
The best meal we had during our stay was at the Dom Carlos in Albufeira old town, a bit more expensive but well worth it for the excellent food and great hosts.

The apartment is located on the hill in a residential area overlooking the Marina (fantastic view right through the valley to the Marina and the ocean) and about a 10 minute leisurely walk to the Old Town and beach and restaurants, so it is nice and quiet and away from the constant flow of other holiday makers but still close enough that you do not feel like you are missing out! The pictures don’t do it justice, the pool and grounds are immaculate and the apartment itself is very nicely furnished. Perfect for couples on a relaxing holiday. The staff at Holiday Rentals are fantastic and made the process of choosing the right apartment for our needs and then booking and staying fuss free, which is always welcomed when travelling! The apartment is a great find and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in Albufeira.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we are so pleased that you enjoyed the apartment and location so much. We also think it is very special and it is difficult to capture the spectacular setting and photos on camera. I think that you meant to say the staff at Algarve Getaways, and it was a pleasure dealing with you and we hope to welcome you back to this little piece of paradise in the Algarve.

Absolutley Brilliant

  • 5 out of 5
This appartment is lovely and is everything it is described to be. The pool is wonderful. The town is within walking distance but the appartment is quiet and peaceful with great views out to sea. It was clean and comfortable and the complimentary items in the fridge were very welcome as were the selection of books,music and CD's. I started reading one of the books on offer there but didn't finish it before the end of the holiday, this is a good enough reason to return to find out the ending. The staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble even though we arrived quite late in the evening. I would recommend this appartment to a friend or relative. There are 'real' pillows on the beds, not the cardboard filled ones we have encountered in other places.
One of our favourite beaches is Gale and we had a couple of nice meals in Pedras Amarelas, the restaurant on the beach. There are numerous lovely beaches within a short drive and the local beach is very nice should you not want to get in the car. The restaurant overlooking the beach is good too. As I write this it is pouring with rain where I live and I would give a lot to be transported back to that lovely appartment and area. We hope to go back as soon as we can.
