AIR CONDITIONED and HEATED, makes Encosta de São José perfect for year-round vacation rentals.

ALBUFEIRA is also the BEST LOCATION IN THE ALGARVE FOR WINTER SUN and out of season bookings, as it is always open for business.

WITH OVER 300 DAYS OF SUNSHINE A YEAR, you can laze on the beaches and soak up the sun and savour the fresh mouth-watering food on offer at the BEACH RESTAURANTS.

Beautiful Apartment in a very well maintained Complex. Ideally located for access to gorgeous beaches with Old Town Albufeira only a short drive away. Booked through Algarve Getaways for our first visit to this area and the Apartment and complex suited our needs perfectly. Supermarket, laundry, Pharmacy and restaurants all adjacent to Complex. Great recommendations from Algarve Getaways on restaurants. - Sol Domingo, Prima Pasta were our facourites. Gale Beach 2kms away simply stunning!. Would love to go back to this Complex again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for booking your holiday with Algarve Getaways. We are delighted that you enjoyed this beautiful apartment at Encosta da São José so much. It does have a wonderful entertainment flow, with a fabulous private terrace leading onto the garden. It is also in an excellent position for exploring the Algarve and, as you say, the beaches around there are stunning - so picturesque, soft golden sands, 3 restaurants to choose from at Galé Beach, as well as different water-sports. Our information folder in the apartment is packed with recommendations on what to do and where to go and I am so pleased that you tried some of our recommended restaurants. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Best wishes, Barbara at Algarve Getaways.
