Why Harry Glass chose Montechoro
My wife and i loved holidaying in Portugal and when the "kids" were old enough we decided to buy a property in Albufeira. The area is very quiet with views of the surrounding countryside but is still only about a 10 minute walk to the top of the strip. Its also very convenient for access to the N125 and motorway. Unfortunately the motoway has tolls that have to be paid when you return your hired car.
What makes this Apartment unique
We both like the apartments at Monde da Eira and after looking for about 8 months we finally decided to purchase the apartment. We get on very well with all our neighbours and have made some very close friends. The apartment is well furnished to a high standard and all of our friends who have visited Monte da Eira were very happy there. The apartment is situated in a quiet area but still within walking distance to the "Strip" and other local amenities.

There are numerous beeches in and around Albufeira. The nearest beech is about 25 minutes walk or by bus 5 minutes. A paid shuttle (Tourist Train every 20 minutes) to the old town runs regularly from the middle of the strip. Another nice beech is Praia da Falesia which is about a 20 minute car ride and is worth a visit.
The nearest airport is Faro and is about 30/35 minutes drive to Monte da Eira. Car hire is available at the airport but its advisable to book in advance. A 10% discount is available from Autorent when you book my apartment. A pickup by taxi at the airport can be arranged and costs €35 one way.
The journey from the apartment to the motorway takes about 15 minutes and with Albufeira`s central position other towns and cities are within easy reach. The N125 runs parallel to the motorway and is about 5 minutes from Monte da Eira. The main shopping center at Giua is only 15 minutes by car and is situated on the N125.
A map of the local area outling positions of shops, cash maschines, chemists etc will be available to guests. There are also in the apartment information leaflets for many attractions that can be found in Albufeira and the surrounding area. A new chemists and mini mercado which sells fresh bread have opened less that 5 minutes walk from the apartment.
