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.

GREAT APARTMENT, GREAT HOLIDAY

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at this apartment for 1 week and had a wonderful time.
The apartment was done to a high standard and had everything you needed, although we didn't do any cooking as in the old town there are LOADS of great places to eat and the taxi back is only 4 euro, so no need to walk back after a nice meal. The pool area was relly quiet and relaxing, no need to reserve sunbeds. The balcony also had 2 sunloungers and the sun was on the balcony all day and also had great views. The only regret is that we didn't go for 2 weeks !!!!!!!!!!
