The Algarve region

Beaches vary along the region's long coastline. For long beaches consider Falésia, Armação de Pêra, Quarteira or Monte Gordo. Praia da Rocha is a wide beach and popular with the younger crowd, but for watersports head to Meia Praia, Praia do Martinhal, Praia da Luz or Baleeira.

Eating and drinking - there's something for every taste and budget, from picnics at the'end of the world' in Cape St Vincent and beachfront terraces in Alvor to sophisticated fish restaurants in Vilamoura marina and Michelin-starred dining.

Escape - if you fancy getting away from the crowds, head to the eastern Algarve resort of Tavira or the deserted beaches around Ria Formosa Natural Park. In the countryside, Monchique is a perfect choice with mountain walks and a spa at the end of the day.

Excursions - if you have a hire car or fancy taking a trip out for the day, explore the old towns of Faro, Tavira Castro Marim and Monchique. You might even consider a longer trip (maybe with an overnight stay) to the country's capital of Lisbon.

Golf - the Algarve is renowned for its golf, with around 30 golf courses, some with plenty of water features, others with long greens among pine trees, plus coaching and putting greens,


The apartment complex has direct access to the beach by a private road..You can take a walk to the famous Fishermans' Beach in the heart of the old town of Albufeira and takes 15 minutes to walk.

The apartment complex is only 5 minutes away from the night-life of Albufeira area called the strip,where there is entertainment for all ages and plenty of excellent restaurants bars and cafes.

'There is a tourist train' that runs between the 'strip' and Albufeira 'old town' and the excellent local "Giro" minibus network. If you want to visit one of the water parks such as Aqualand or the Algarve's most popular theme park Zoomarine, there are several agencies in Albufeira offering very reasonable prices for transportation and tickets and with pick-up points near the main hotels it's both convenient and cheaper than hiring a car.

"Great stay"

We had a lovely one week stay - excellent location, beautiful apartment, and very good communication with the owner for booking. Nice quiet location, good place for couples wanting a nice relaxing break. We booked airport transport via the owner as well and this was worked really well and was good value for money.

"Excellent stay!"

The appartment is a really great one. You can reach both - the old town and the Strip easily (within walking distance), the access to the beach is excellent and the view from the terrace is stunning - something that you want to take home with you! All in all, we really recommend staying this appartment!

This apartment is ideally situated for the beach , restaurants.and walking into either the old town orThe Strip. There are several lovely places to eat within a 5 minute walk. The accommodation is furnished to a high standard with excellent appliances and has everything you need for a most enjoyable stay.

"excellent appartment with all mod cons at a great location"

We are just back home on the 30th Aug after 1 week at the quinta de barracuda. I couldnt fault it at all. We were met at the apartment by a lovely representative Theresa The apartment is furnished to a very high standard with quality appliances throughout. A great location less than 5 minutes to the beach, 10 minutes to the strip and 20 minutes to the old town which is a lovely walk with the family. This was our first trip to Portugal as a family and this appartment met all our needs and more It was like home from home with sky t.v and good collection of dvds to watch at night. I would like to thank John for the great communication right up untill we went and through out our stay and I will definitely be returning next yr as I couldnt imagine staying anywhere else now after such a beautifully decorated appartment. As ur heading towards the strip call into a family run cafe called hot spot, great breakfasts and toasties and the service was excellent...just raging that we didnt find it till the end of our Holiday
