Make a holiday apartment or villa in Albufeira your home away from home

Albufeira is the gateway to the Algarve, is situated on the coastline, and with access to 20 beaches. The two parts of Albufeira, the old town and the new resort, blend together perfectly. The old Town is a maze of tiny streets and whitewashed houses. Although the earthquake and associated tidal flood of Albufeira in 1755 destroyed most of the old town, there are still many buildings worth investigating whilst on Algarve holiday in Albufeira.

Things to do from your villa in Albufeira

There are over 20 beaches on the Albufeira coastline all of different sizes and styles, so there are hideaways in rocky coves, or golden sweeping beaches adorned with volleyball pitches and sun loungers. You will undoubtedly test many of the beaches from you Albufeira apartment, and will only find your favourite in time for another Albufeira holiday! Many of them have the European blue flag accreditation for cleanliness and safety, and there are facilities available for many sports, and equipment hire.

The flat was well equipped, beautifully clean and provided plenty of room for the two of us during a long stay. The owner was always responsible and available.

This is by far the best holiday home I have stayed in. There are 2 large bedrooms one en suite the other right outside the bedroom. The kitchen is seriously a kitchen from home, every item you can think of is there, along with dishwasher and washing machine. - living room tv, (satellite sky sports etc) Dvd,cd player, leather sofas. - the patio is huge and a nice patio set. - we used the log fire at night and it was very warm and an added luxury. It is a steep climb, however if you know before you are prepared. Chris the owner is friendly polite and helpful. I CERTAINLY will be staying here again. Thanks chris for a great holiday home!
