Excellent property ina great location

  • 4 of 5

We have recently returned from a 10 night stay at these apartments, and we really did have a great time. The booking process was quick and easy and the owner was very informative and responsive prior to us booking. Airport pick up by Alicia arranged via the owner was great, including a stop for fresh oranges from the side of the road on the way to apartment and a drop off at the supermarket! Great service. The location is great, 5 minute walk from the beach and within walking distance of the new town and old town areas of Albufeira. The apartment had everything we needed, comfortable, clean and air conditioned. The balcony was big and had the sun on it for most of the day, which was great for an early evening G+T before getting ready to go out for the evening! My boyfriend also proposed to me whilst sat on here a couple of days after we arrived, so this place will always hold special memories for us!! We celebrated over great food, service and Champagne at La Locanda Dei Segreti resturant in the old town....happy days!! I would highly recommend a stay here, there is something for everyone in Albufeira, and we will certainly be going back for another stay here in the future.

What’s so special?................With location being one of the keys to a great holiday, it is worth noting that the location here is truly remarkable, it boasts spectacular sea-views of Albufeira bay and the Old Town.

It's only a 2 minute stroll through the private gated access to the beach. A leisurely 15 minutes stroll along the beach takes you into the Old Town of Albufeira with it’s quaint cobbled streets and amazing cuisine.

The famous buzzing ‘Strip’ is only a 5 minute walk!

Golf: The Algarve was awarded 'Established Golf Destination Of The Year 2006' by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators.

There are 3 local golf courses a short drive away, the closest being a 5 minute drive away.

These are Salgados (18 holes), Pine Cliffs (9 holes) Balaia Golf (9 holes).

Some of the other world class golf courses in Vilamoura include Victoria, Millenium, Pinhal, and Old Course which are approximately 15-20 minutes drive away

In addition to the many courses in the central and western Algarve, there are also numerous high-class courses in the eastern Algarve and nearby Costa de la Luz in Spain. Amongst these are signature courses from two of the world's greatest names in golf; Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus, and Quinta Do Vale designed by Seve Ballesteros. Both of these courses can be reached from the apartment in around an hour.
