The Algarve / Central Algarve region
The Algarve region is the southern most district of Portugal with sandy beaches and lovely friendly people. The climate is warm and sunny even in October and November with clear blue skies.
The area has many attractions that are easily accessable. These include good quality aqua parks, boat trips, go-karting, horse riding, para-sending.
Visiting the quaint Portuguese towns of Silves, Lagos and Taviera is recommended. Trips are also available to Gibraltar, Seville and Lisbon.
The Albufeira / Central Albufeira area
Within a minutes walk from the apartment, you will be enjoying the unspoilt sandy beach, where you can relax having a meal and a drink overlooking the sea at one of the beach bars.
The lively 'strip' is a 5 minute walk away where there are bars and eateries. For an authentic evening out the old town of albufeira has traditional Portuguese menus where fish dishes are a speciality. The 'Restaurant 54' is highly recommended where a 3 course meal costs 10 euros
Many local festivals throughout the year, a live band on the beach with spectacular firework display on New Years eve is an experience that will be long remembered.

Everything was as described.
Theresa and Dave were great
Appartment was spotless and had everything you needed even down to beach towels.
Dave was on time to collect us from the airport and even called to say he knew our flight had been delayed and would be there to collect us when we landed.
Theresa was there to meet us at the appartment and explained how everything worked. The bottle of milk, water and wine were very welcome.
The location is amazing and is literally 2 minutes walk from the appartment, with a 20 minute walk to the old town along the beach.
The strip is only 5 to 10 minutes walk.
There are excellent views from the appartment and it gets plenty of sun on the balcony in September when we were there.
The main supermarket is around 20 to 30 minutes walk away but there is always taxis around. There are smaller mini markets a few minutes walk away.
We cooked in the appartment the whole time we were there and there is everything you need to hand. no need to go out unless you want to. Very relaxing holliday.
All I can say is believe the excellent reviews, they are all true and I am looking forward to our return visit soon.
Thank you Theresa and Dave

This is the best apartment we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. Its a beautiful luxurious apartment with everything you could possibly need to make your holiday exceptional. Only a 2 minute walk to the beach, a 5 minute walk to the lively strip which is full of bars and restaurants, something to suit everyone. The old town is a 15 minute walk along the beach or a 20 minute walk by road. Alternatively you can get a taxi for 4 euros.It was great that Theresa was on site if we needed her for anything and Dave providing then airport transfers made our holiday absolutely fabulous. Will definately be back next year. Would highly recommend a stay at this apartment in the Quinta Da Barracuda.
