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.

For evening entertainment, The Strip in the new beach side of Albufeira, has every conceivable bar and club, accounting for all tastes, long into the night.

Excellent communication with owner Joao and manager Jorge who was very welcoming. Balcony enjoys the sun from midday to sunset and easy car parking on site. Highly recommended.

It epitomises home from home, whereby every requirement is catered for. The position of the property is superb with lovely walks along the coastline and secluded beaches tucked away. We went for four days to 'chill out' , exploring everywhere on foot, yet any longer - especially with young children - and a car would be beneficial. The customer service from start to completion was excellent. It was completely 'stress less' which meant we could relax from the minute the holiday was booked.

You could spend all day on the balcony and not be bored with the view. Yes it's on top of a steep hill but a local bus to Dolphin island drops you off 30 metres from the complex which is very secure or local taxi is cheap. Thanks also to Viktorias dad for coming out to let us in as we were delayed arriving. We would definitely stay there again our 6 weeks went so fast.
