The Algarve region

The Algarve has long been a favoured destination for holidays. It is full of ancient history and heritage. Still standing today are buildings and walls dating back to the Roman times.

Many museums and guided tours immerse you in the culture of this proud place offering an in-depth insight into the evolution of this beautiful region.

The Algarve has a fantastic all-year round climate and can boast more sunshine hours than California!

You can often see temperatures hit the mid 30's, thanks to the see breezes its always a pleasant heat.

With over 100 miles of dramatic cliff faces and extensive golden beaches, the Algarve offers a dramatic coastline, and beautiful clear seas to swim, sail, surf in or simply watch the boats sailing by.

There is something for everyone, whether you're after a relaxing day, watersports or simply viewing the many tourist attractions.


Albufeira is regarded as the tourist capital of the Algarve offering good cuisine, shopping,, local markets, night-life and relaxation

The town itself offers an interesting contrast with its two distinct areas known as The Old Town with Marina, cobbled streets and newly refurbished square, and the well known 'Strip' with its many shops, restaurants, bars, bull ring and vibrant night-life.

With over 3,000 hours of sunshine you can enjoy the many glorious long sandy beaches in Albufeira. These golden shores with dramatic cliffs and rock formations make this area a wonderful destination both in summer and winter.

Some of best and most beautiful beaches in the entire world are to be found here, many have been awarded prestigious Blue Flags for their cleanliness.


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

There are 3 local golf courses a short drive away at Salgados (18 holes), Pine Cliffs (9 holes) Balaia Golf (9 holes). Some of the other top golf courses in Vilamoura include Victoria, Millenium, Pinhal, and Old Course which are approximately 15 minutes drive away.


Faro is the nearest airport approx 35m away / 30-35 minutes drive. Car hire is available at the airport. Airport pick ups can be arranged, if requested. Taxis are also available at the airport. As the apartment is centrally located to many of the local attractions, car hire is not essential. If, however, you want to explore the Algarve further,car hire is available at very reasonable rates. The local bus service is very efficient and reliable if you do not wish to drive.


Excellent location within Albufeira close to the beach with easy access to the Algarve's towns, villages, beaches, attractions and world class golf courses.

"Little gem"

Stayed here for 10 days and have to say it has been our favourite holiday to date. Apartment is lovely, really clean and well appointed.
Loved the fact we had a 2min walk from our gate to the beach.
Looking to book up again this year and have a feeling this will be our must have holiday each year!
Anne is lovely and very helpfull, as are the couple who look after the place.
A home from home in the sun

"This accommodation is perfectly located for both night life and quiet evenings, the choice is yours!"

The apartment is located in an idyllic setting, beautiful view over the sea, along with a great view of Albufeira. The accommodation is first class, with everything you would need during your stay. The pool area is spacious and tranquil with easy access to the beach just a minute away. I would highly recommend this apartment and many thanks goes to Joyce who looked after us during our stay. Thanks again Anne and Gerry.

"Excellent accommodation in an ideal location for the perfect break"

This was our second visit to the Quinta Da Barracuda apartments. The apartments are ideally located between the old town, the strip and nearby Oura. Once again we stayed in apartment A23 on the second floor with excellent views from the balcony of the old town. Thanks to Anne for making the booking process as painless as possible and also to Jose who met us at the apartment. Although we arrived three hours ahead of our scheduled arrival time due to an early flight, Jose met us at the (gated) complex and promptly should us to our apartment, great service.
The apartment really is a home from home. Fitted kitchen with modern, quality appliances and a 40 inch flat screen tv in the lounge. The bedroom is spacious with plenty of drawer/wardrobe space. Both the lounge and bedroom have french doors leading onto a large balcony where you can watch the most amazing sunsets.
There is a large rectangular pool and a circular kids pool both well maintained with plenty of sun loungers to go around.
In summary, if you're looking for secure, quality accommodation in an ideal location this is for you.

"Fantastic Holiday apartment with a wonderful view"

If you are looking for a lovely quiet holiday apartment to rent in Albufeira then this is the apartment for you. It is in an excellent location, 2 mins walk to the beach, 5 mins walk to the strip and 10 minutes drive to the old town. It is very clean and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. This was our first holiday with our 8 month old baby and the apartment made it easy as it was so nice you didn't mind staying in when little one was sleeping. The views not bad either!
