Cerro Grande, Albufeira, Portugal - "Cerro Grande" - Best of Both Worlds!

If you're looking for lazy days in the sun, without being far from the action, then “Cerro Grande” area could be just right for you. You really do get the “Best of both worlds”.

Set on the south-west tip of Europe is the “Algarve”, Europe's sunniest spot; a unique jewel where the finest beaches and weather on the continent meet traditional historic Portugal.

The Cerro Grande, is a prestigious residential area situated on a hill on the western side of Albufeira. The Windmill provides a focal point and offers fantastic views of the Ocean, and of the Old Town of Albufeira.

Whilst Cerro Grande is within easy reach of all the attractions of the resort, its location on a quiet hillside provides a peaceful escape from the bustle of the town, for those looking for rest and relaxation.

Ten minutes walk to the sea; with the multi coloured architecture of the new Marina to the west, and old town Albufeira to the east, this provides an ideal location for those looking for a base to explore the Algarve.

Albufeira - known as the "St. Tropez" of the Algarve, is now one of its most popular resorts, with more hours of sunshine than any other location in Europe.

Famous for its lively and social nightlife, beautiful beaches, varied water sports, golf courses, glorious countryside and local cuisine, Albufeira has developed into a holiday haven for all ages.

Some of the old charm is still there, and it is to be found in the narrow streets, lined with whitewashed houses, apartments, cafes and shops, which lead down to a central square, Largo Eng. Duarte Pacheco. "New" Albufeira, centred on Areias de São João, is on the east side. The most famous thoroughfare is well known as The Strip. It stretches past scores of cafes, restaurants, discos and bars, to a big busy beach called Praia da Oura.

Many shows, concerts and exhibitions are specially organised through the holiday season by the Town Hall.

The quality and safety of Albufeira's beaches has been rewarded with a high number of Blue Flags and is maintained, virtually year after year.

A tunnel, at the end of a pedestrian-only shopping area leads to the town's main beach called the Praia do Penico, but there are other fine beaches within easy reach.

To the east of the town centre is Praia dos Pescadores (Fishermen's Beach) about half a kilometre away. Praia da Oura about 3km, Praia da Falésia 10km and Balaia and Olhos de Água are closer to Albufeira .West of Albufeira are other beaches located amongst the rocks and coves, such as the Praia da Galé.

Theme parks and water parks (Zoomarine and Aqualand) are only a 15 minute drive.

Algarve Shopping (130 shops, cafés, ten-pin bowling and cinemas) is 15 minutes' away.

Albufeira has two golf courses: one with 9 holes (Balaia), and one with 18 holes (Salgados) is 15 minutes' drive away; the courses at Vilamoura are 20 minutes' away.

The Cerro Grande area of Albufeira is perfectly placed for the “Best of both Worlds”.

                            Beautiful property in authentic Algarve setting

                            5 of 5
                            We very much enjoyed staying a week in this Quinta. The place is located in a quite rural Algarve setting with beautiful views. Shops and other facilities are close by (Paderne) and the coast is a mere 20 minutes drive. The appartments are spacious, clean and comfortable. A nice touch is the fact that each apartment has a barbeque with charcoal provided. The owner and the staff are friendly and helpful. We will be back.

                            This was a last minute booking, as we usually stay in the Vilamoura/loule region but couldn't find a suitable villa. We found this one in an area we didn't know called Paderne. A small village only about 10 minute drive from Alburfeira and were glad we did. It was so peaceful(for a change) no noisy neighbours or lawnmowers going all day just the sound of birds. The garden and pool were beautiful. The villa was kept immaculate by Daniela and her husband who were the sweetest people you could wish to meet. Much larger than we expected and beautifully decorated. There's a large garage for the car which is most welcome when it's hot outside. Hopefully we will be returning soon and would highly recommend.

                            Great Villa

                            5 of 5
                            We had a lovely week in Gerry's villa. He was kind enough to take us shopping, the first day, and show us around the village, as we didn't have a car. The Villa was so big, lovely and clean, 10 of us stayed there. The pool was great too. I would have like to have had a little shade around the pool as It was so hot. Just a suggestion not a criticism. Also I think you really do need a car, the walk to the village was quite away with my grandson in a buggy. All the food we had out was great. We got a taxi three day to different places and they were very helpful. Yellow fish transfer's from the airport were good too. The village was lovely typical of the Portuguese lifestyle. Not commercialized at all, which we liked. I would recommend anybody stay at Gerry's villa well worth the money. Thanks for a lovely holiday
