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.

The extendable coach you see in photos is actually 2 separated beds, so, when you use them, it will not remain too much space in the room. Another thing that might need to be changed is the sunbed from outside, it looks old and dirty. But overall, it was very good!

Tyrone and Nicola have always been on hand to answer any questions and requests we had (such as where to book airport transfers, arranging a travel cot for us etc) and the instructions for arriving at the property, accessing it, using the TV etc were very clear and easy to understand. The air conditioning works perfectly and having so many TV channels to choose from in the evening (including all the UK ones) were a godsend with a toddler as we couldn't go out late in the evenings with her early bedtime. The heated towel rack in the bathroom made drying all our swimsuits every day a doddle. Beach equipment (buckets and spades) were an added bonus too. The kitchen was well-equipped with utensils, however would recommend either bringing small quantities of essential food cupboard ingredients (oil, salt etc) or stocking up from a supermarket in town if you plan to do a lot of cooking in the apartment as there are no food items in the cupboards. There's a washing machine so bring couple of tablets/sachet of powder if you fancy doing any laundry too! The swimming pool and kiddie splash pool shared by the apartment block were lovely - clean and conveniently located. Never felt too overcrowded. The apartment is just a short walk from the town centre where you can find restaurants, shops and the beach. We highly recommend visiting the nearby Zoo Marine park, especially if you have kids. You can buy tickets from one of the tourist offices in town and the coach collects you from outside the apartment. There were dolphin and sea lion shows, pools, rides etc which keep children entertained all day. Thank you Tyrone and Nicola for a lovely stay in your apartment!
