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.

Many of them have the European blue flag accreditation for cleanliness and safety, and there are facilities available for many sports, and equipment hire.

We initially thought we were a bit far out of the town. It is quiet around tge villa but it is just a 15 minute stroll and passed a few bars on the way. Villa had great facilities and everything provided that we needed. Local supermarket nearby. We would definitely stay again.

Good size living area, patio would be a little cramped for 6 but was fine for 4. Plenty of books and DVDs left by previous people. Good quiet location near the top of a hill. This apartment is in a development with shared swimming pool and cafe/bar area; although it doesn't look out onto the pool area it's only a minute's walk away. WiFi sporadic inside the house. Lots of parking spaces if you have a car.

New town, the food was great locals were very nice! The pool was great for the kids, the only reason it's not a 5 star rating was villa just needs a little modernisation apart from that we loved it we'll be going back
