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! 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 off 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!

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!

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.

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (kids aged 9 & 7) stayed in Margarida's apartment for 9 days during the May half term break. We were put in contact with the property agent, Tina who made arrangements for a van to pick us up from the airport and deliver us to the apartment. Our taxi driver was lovely! It took us about 25 min to get to Albufeira, and Tina met us at the building. She was very kind and gave us a nice over view of the apartment and surrounding area. The location of the apartment is absolutely ideal! The building is located at the end of one of the main streets leading into old town and down to the beach. All manner of restaurants and shops are minutes away and the beach is only a 5-7 minute walk. The old town can get quite busy and has a bustling night life, but we were just far enough away that we were not bothered by late night noise. The apartment itself is rather basic, but it had everything we needed. The selling point is really the location. It can't be beat! Working with Margarida & Tina was easy and pleasant. A good experience all around. We highly recommend and would stay there again in a heart beat!
