We are a family of 4 from the North East of England with our children fast growing up wanted to have a second home in Portugal, where we first visited on our honeymoon. Balaia has proved the ideal place for family holidays. The fact that our children are now young adults themselves they still enjoy going every year speaks for itself.
Why Owner chose Albufeira
We first visited Balaia as a family in August 2004 after finding the resort on Owners Direct whilst arranging our own holiday instead of usual 'package' holidays. From this very first visit we all fell in love with the place, its location, friendliness, safety and facilities. After returning in 2005 we then went on to purchase our own apartment and completed this in February 2006. The apartment you see is our 2nd home in Portugal. We hope you will also treat as your 2nd home.
What makes this Apartment unique
We enjoy the location of our apartment as it is close to the entrance of the complex. Making it easy for us to walk to the beach or shop, access local transport or walk to nearby restaurants. We enjoy being only 1 minute away from the main pool heated in the low season, tennis courts and indoor gym and a short walk to play golf or practice on the driving range.
