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!

Well! Well! Well!

5 of 5
I just do not know where to start! - from point A: enquiring to Z: leaving there is at no point I can find fault or complain. This is by far the best holiday home I have stayed in. There are 2 large bedrooms one en suite the other right outside the bedroom. The kitchen is seriously a kitchen from home, every item you can think of is there, along with dishwasher and washing machine. - living room tv, (satellite sky sports etc) Dvd,cd player, leather sofas. - the patio is huge and a nice patio set. - we used the log fire at night and it was very warm and an added luxury. It is a steep climb, however if you know before you are prepared. Chris the owner is friendly polite and helpful. I CERTAINLY will be staying here again. Thanks chris for a great holiday home!

Superb apartment, best standards i have ever seen

5 of 5
Having stayed at this resort 5 times now I must say this was by far our best experience, the apartment on the ground floor had everything included and more, from great private wifi to superb wet rooms fully a/c/ troughout and all amenities included you would ever need. the owner was very pleasant in communications and everything was recently renovated to the highest standards. we have already booked this again for next year.
