APARTMENT OR-B1B: 1 BEDROOM, SLEEPS 4

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.

Luxury Accomodation in a lovely location.

  • 4 out of 5
Fablous accomodation in a very clean quiet private complex, staff most helpfull close to Old Town except for the steep slippy incline, would reccomend it to anyone who did not mind the steps,would would be perfect for anyone with own transport.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and I am so pleased that you enjoyed staying in this apartment. From Encosta da Orada, there are 4 different walking routes down the hill to the Old Town and only one, through Albufeira Jardim, has a 'steep slippy incline'. It is unfortunate that you did not venture further and follow the other roads/routes down. There is also a bus stop very close to Encosta da Orada, with a regular bus service every 20 - 30 minutes all day and most of the night, for anyone who doesn't want to walk. Taxis are also very cheap. A car does definitely give you the freedom to explore more of the Algarve and the many wonderful beaches, towns and villages nearby. We do however, have very many guests who stay at Encosta da Orada who do not hire a car and they are very happy without it. We hope to welcome you back in the future and will be very happy to discuss the most suitable accommodation for your needs. With best wishes, Barbara at Algarve Getaways.

Excellent accomodation in a lovely quiet location

  • 5 out of 5
From the moment we arrived,it was perfect, our very efficient and friendly rep Julie was waiting for us.Our apt OR-BIB was very modern,clean - home away from home,everything we needed was there. We were treated to a welcome pack which was a lovely idea, we could make a cup of tea or have a glass of wine and did not have to worry about getting to the supermarket immediately. the bed was very comfy and the air conditioning was very good,the electronic shutters were great as they made the place feel very safe and also lovely and dark in the morning. there were always beds at the pool, the two pools were fantastic,pool area very safe.gardens were also very well maintained,Locked gates into the complex made it very safe. the only negative we would have found was the steep path down to the old town,but if you found it difficult you could always get a taxi. Old town was only about 12 mins walk. We would definitely return and maybe next time try on of the Pent Houses

  • 4 out of 5
Great apartment! Well furnished, with a fully equipped kitchen that we made good use of on a few occasions…
The salt water swimming pools areas were clean and well maintained, as were the gardens (lots of exotic plants).
We enjoyed the sunsets from our balcony. A beautiful view!
A great holiday and we will sure recommend this apartment and Algarve Getaways to our friends.

Algarve Getaways, HR 411930, Encosta da Orada

  • 4 out of 5
This apartment was modern, clean and very well equipped, with great salt water swimming pools (with a nice cascade joining them).
We must also compliment the well groomed gardens and the tennis court (free of charge).
Great view from our balcony of the valley and the surrounding hills, blending into the sea in the distance… The sunsets were just beautiful!!!
The Old Town is within walking distance and if “needed”, a return trip by taxi (after a meal and a few drinks) is quite reasonably priced (less the 5 euros).
There are numerous lovely beaches within a short drive.
We would like to thank Barbara and Julie for their help in organizing a great vacation!
We will be back…

An excellent apartment: modern, comfortable and well equipped.
The view from the balcony was great. Very relaxing and with beautiful sun sets!
The grounds were well maintained, decorated with a variety of exotic plants and with two salt water pools (linked by a cascade). A real "classy" resort...
The whole family had a great time! We will recommend to family and friends.
