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.
