About The Owner

We are a recently retired couple who live in the UK on the south coast near Southampton. We try to visit the lovely facilities that Balaia Golf Village and the surrounding areas have to offer as often as we can, spending about 6 weeks of the year in Portugal.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2003

Why The Owner chose Albufeira

We purchased this property because of the wonderful location and the great facilities in Balaia Golf Village. It is central to most attractions in the Algarve and is only about 30mins drive from the airport at Faro.
