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.

The apartment had everything we needed.It was clean and spacious with a large balcony. We used a taxi occasionally as the incline became a little steep if used regularly.

Villa is well maintained with lovely pool and views. will book again and have already got friends interested in booking.
