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.

Albufeira's Old town hides a selection of locally renowned restaurants, preparing the regions most delicious fresh seafood and cataplana (grilled sardines, a local specialty).

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.

Places to holiday in Albufeira

Away from The Strip in Albufeira, there are two resorts with fantastic golfing facilities on site. Balaia, a golf village has a nine hole par 3 course with some considerable hazards, six swimming pools, gyms, jacuzzi, steam room, massage centres and of course, is situated with good access to beaches. The other golfing resort is at Clube Albufeira Resort, which has facilities for almost any request!

Guia and Sao Rafael are two gems along the Albufeira coastline. Guia is a tiny, delicate village, with no hustle and exquisite cuisine. It is certainly worth visiting, even if you decide to take a villa in Albufeira elsewhere along the coast. Sao Rafael is also on the coast, and has hidden sandy beaches, cliff walks and some of the freshest fish on the region.

Weather in Albufeira, Portugal

With all destinations in the Algarve, seasonal variations in temperature are not nearly as pronounced as they are in the UK, and with 300 days of sunshine a year, a villa in Albufeira is good value any time you need a getaway!

Fantas apartment with brilliant views

5 of 5
We have just returned from 12 Nights in this apartment and will definitely be returning again. Everything was excellent from initial booking and correspondence with the owner Sharon thorough to meet and greet with Kevin (property manager). This is a fabulous spacious apartment with everything you need for a self-catering holiday and also with a fantastic view of the sea and pool area. It is about 5 min walk to the beach and about 15 min walk to the old town along the beach board walk. A fantastic holiday …… Thank you Sharon

Perfect location - has it all! Close to bars & restaurants but quiet enough to relax.

5 of 5
Our party of 3 stayed here in July and had a fantastic time. The apartment was spotless and had everything that we needed for our stay. The complex is in a quiet area, close to the churches but within easy walking distance of plenty of bars and restaurants, and of course the beach! (situated near the beach lift). It's a little hilly but easily accessible and with plenty of bars to visit on your route up the hill - would especially recommend Restaurant 54 for a sangria and beautiful views of the beach from its first floor terrace!
