Beautiful apartment

5 of 5
I arrived a little early and the cleaners were in the apartment, but they were very welcoming (and thorough - the apartment was spotless) and gave me some advice about the area. It's close to the bottom end of the strip, but also far enough away to be quiet and not bothered by the noise at night. Apartment was well equipped. I could have probably taken just hand luggage for the week and used the washing machine (worth knowing if you are undecided about taking a big suitcase!). The walk to the old town took about 20-30 minutes (leisurely stroll pace) and was a little less 'frantic' than the new town strip, but was still busy and open until 4am (at least). Plenty of bars playing live music in the old town as well. The beach bars and restaurants at Praia do Oura are worth a visit as well. Nice and relaxing. If I ever decide to visit Albufeira again I'd certainly try and book this apartment again.

Lovely, large property with great pool.

5 of 5
A lovely property with a great pool, in a good location. My family spent a week here for my mothers 70th birthday and everyone had a great time. As it was very hot, the good-sized pool got a lot of use. The inside stayed nice and cool, but there is Air Con if it gets a bit too much at night. The property was received clean and tidy and is very secure, for anyone that worries about that kind of thing. The nearest beach is just a 5-10 minute walk away, Albufeira is approx. 20-30 mins, and there is a small taxi stop just a couple of hundred metres up the road in case you can't walk it or want to go further afield. There are also shops and restaurants in the nearby area and the two closest restaurants, which are basically next door, are exceptionally friendly and have great food. Finally, the owner of the property is very helpful, 100% trustworthy and made the booking as straightforward as possible.
