Fabulous Apartment - Albufeira Center Within Short Walk to Beach and Restaurants

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This sunny, contemporary apartment is located in the center of the exciting, historic town of Albufeira, yet it is quiet to give you the most enjoyable holiday. The location is perfect - only about a 5-minute walk from beaches and steps away from many great restaurants, art galleries, grocery stores and fun shops! During the clear, sunny days, you can enjoy a walk through the scenic cobbled stone streets, relax at the beach or try out one of the many water sports and boat trips to the local caves. At night, you can enjoy the exciting night-life, live-entertainment shows with a variety of artists, live music, puppet shows, and much more.

Albufeira also offers many daily tours to Lisbon, the Algarve coast and Seville, Spain. If you are renting a car, we may want to explore the historic neighboring towns of Faro, Tavira, Lagos, Olhão, Silves and Sagres to name a few. Both children and adults alike can enjoy the many surrounding area activities, such as swimming with the dolphins at Zoo Marine or visit the many water parks, such as Krazy World (petting zoo) and Slide and Splash where you can go for another day of fun. If playing golf is your passion, there are excellent golf courses, including the famous Sheraton Pine Cliffs Golf Course and Balaia Golf, within a short drive!

This is a very spacious apartment with room for four and is accessible from parking garage, front and back door. It includes fully equipped kitchen, all linens, air conditioning/heating and washing machine. It includes free broadband Internet access, cable TV with CNN, BBC and more international and Portuguese channels! Please note that TV in the picture is no longer there and it's been replaced with a flat screen TV. There is no need to rent a car, but if you need to rent one, there is a rental car agency in the building next door. Parking garage included! There is no balcony, but there is a large balcony door with rail in the living room, providing a lot of sunlight on sunny afternoons. The apartment is located bout a 30-minute drive from Faro International Airport and about a 2-hour drive from Lisbon International Airport. Pick up from Faro Airport can be arranged at a reasonable rate.

Highly recommended for all ages, romantic and relaxing getaways, family vacations, and beach fun!

FREE WiFi!!!

No smoking please!

About Margarida and Peter

Hi, I am originally from Portugal and live in the United States along with my American husband and two lovely daughters. Although I left the country over thirty years ago, I love going back to Portugal and so does my family.

Margarida and Peter purchased this condo in 2002

Why Margarida and Peter chose Albufeira

We fell in love with Albufeira the first time we visited and when we went back the second time, my husband convinced me to buy a place there. We wanted something in the city within walking distance to the beach, restaurants and city life, but in a quiet area, so that we could rest at the end of the day. This is why we chose our Albufeira Apartment! The location is ideal for a romantic stay or family vacation!

What makes this condo unique

Sunny, cozy, easy to maintain, and spacious for the whole family. Convenient location - minutes away from restaurants, beaches, entertainment, daily tours, and water sports!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Margarida,

I know it's been a few weeks, but I just wanted to say my friends and I had a terrific time in Portugal and we loved the apartment, we had everything we needed. The weather couldn't have been more perfect, and I never realized how great the food is over there. Thank you and have a great summer!

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

First time in Albufeira and we lucked out and picked perfect condo for us.

The condo is true to the pictures posted. It had everything we needed to be comfortable for 3 months. The location is great, close to the buses, tour companies, car rental and is walking distance to the Old Albufeira square as well as the beach. There are multiple restaurants close by, a bakery, a butcher, a pharmacy and a smaller supermarket.

The area was extremely safe. The store owners and staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

The owner and the property manager were easy to contact if we needed them. The rental, arrival and departure was smooth and hassle free.

We will be coming back to both Albufeira and this condo in the future.

Good location nice beach

  • 4 of 5

I spent 6 weeks in Portugal and found the beaches very diverse and beautiful. Make the effort to see the beach in the picture. It is called Praia Sao Rafael. It is actually located about 5 km away but worth the effort. There are several nearby beaches to choose from that are within easy walking distance.The apartment itself is in a handy location within walking distance to everything.and appointed well enough to service your needs for a few days. Having a private car space was a real bonus and the wifi was fast. Without doubt the best way to find your way there is to use gps or if you don't have that use Google maps to get directions as it is located,above a shopping strip, as many places are.
