The Algarve / Central Algarve region
The borough of Albufeira is considered the tourist capital of the Algarve and therefore receives considerable investment into improvements of its tourist facilities and infrastructure. A favourite destination for everyone because of its multiple attractions whether you want a quiet romantic meal, a lively night life or something for the whole family to enjoy.
Free entertainment is provided in the squares throughout the summer and the beautiful, award winning beaches offer para gliding, various water sports and tours of the coast line and caves. Put together with the varied golf courses, glorious countryside, water parks and many other outdoor pursuits on offer, this is a destination that can't fail to fulfil all of your holiday expectations.
The old town has been transformed into a virtually car free zone and is therefore pedestrian friendly and aptly suitable for families with small children. The local authorities are making the town into an all year round resort and promote many free concerts (often accompanied by fire work displays at midnight) and sporting events throughout the year.
The Algarve is blessed with a temperate climate, boasting in excess of 3000 hours of sunshine per year, and therefore lends itself to outdoor living, the numerous and varied beaches being considered some of the best in the world having received many awards for cleanliness and safety.
The Portuguese people, renowned for their friendly charm, hospitality and excellent cuisine are one of Europes' best hosts. Try their fresh, locally caught fish, Sardines being one of their specialities, or their typical Algarvian dishes such as steak on the stone. If chicken is your desire then a "MUST" is to go to the village of Guia, the chicken piri piri capital of the world, which is only a short taxi ride away.
The Albufeira / Central Albufeira area
The apartment complex is perfectly situated overlooking the Old Town area, so while it benefits from being away from the over-populated 'touristy' areas, it's still just a few minutes walk from the Old Town, which now has escalator access down to the fisherman’s beach and square, where regular free concerts are staged throughout the summer months.
The Albufeira marina is a 30-minute gentle stroll from the apartment where boat trips can be booked for visits to the coastal caves, dolphin watching, deep-sea fishing, diving and snorkelling or a relaxing day long coastal boat trip with a BBQ lunch on a secluded beach. Concerts are also held at the marina during the high season.
For night life-seekers the famous Montechoro 'Strip' is a few Euros taxi ride away as are many famous golf courses, water slide parks and zoo marine which are also accessible by car, bus or taxi.
A tourist train also operates throughout the day and evening should you wish to explore the new town areas.
There's something to appeal to everyone, from the non stop night life found in the new town Strip, to the allure of relaxed alfresco dining overlooking the sea in the old town.

I stayed in this apartment with my husband and two teenage children (my sister and her family rented apartment do sol from Phillipa also). The apartment is large and loads of room, perfect for four people. The kitchen was well equipped and also had a washing machine which was great for washing towels etc, The balcony was the best ever and the view was unbelievable, there was table, chairs and two sun loungers - we spent most of our time on the balcony. The apartment was very secure with a code to enter it and it also had a safe inside , it was about 5 minutes down a hill to the escalator which took you right to the old town and the beach. The pool in the complex was great with plenty of sun beds, the snack bar was closed the week we were there. From the beginning of the booking of this apartment to the end Phillipa Ward was fabulous - her communication and booking instructions were 100% she also organised the transfers for us - a great hassle free holiday. First time I ever used Holiday Lettings and it won't be the last. Can't recommend this apartment highly enough, you couldn't get better at the bargain price! Thank you Phillipa and I look forward to returning.
