Quinta De Barracuda 5 star vws
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
As this is one of the newest beachfront developments in Albufeira, it is surprising that this quiet complex with its beautiful sea views is still extremely close to the hustle and bustle of Albufeira, literally only a two minute stroll through the private gated access to the beach of Forte São Jõao.
The Apartment is on floor 3, overlooking the pool and sea, capturing the amazing view across Albufeira's Old Town. Because it's the centre building, it's very private and is not overlooked by any other apartments. All you can see from inside the lounge and bedroom is that fabulous sea - both doors leading to the balcony open fully, enabling you to enjoy the outside from within, and the amazing views from beyond!!!. The spacious south west facing balcony is perfect for summer al fresco dining or just relaxing the hot afternoons away in the sun. In the evenings you will experience the most spectacular evening sun sets.
The beaches in the Algarve are generally all quite amazing but in this part of Albufeira you'll enjoy the best of the best. Additional beaches in the immediate vicinity include 'Praia dos Aveiros' (small and secluded) and 'Praia da Oura' which offers an array of water sports. Its just a 10 minute stroll along the beach (tide permitting) takes you into the Old Town of Albufeira with it's quaint cobbled streets and amazing cuisine.
Albufeira is seen as the tourist capital of the Algarve offering excellent restaurants, shopping, local markets, night-life and relaxation. The town itself offers a great contrast with its two distinct areas known as The Old Town with Marina, and the famous 'Strip'. The 'Strip' is just 5 mins walk from the Barracuda apartment, in the 'Praia da Oura' area, also with it's many shops, restaurants, bars and vibrant night-life.
For Golf lovers, Pine Cliffs, Salgados and Balaia golf courses are close by, and of course the six world-class championship courses at Villamoura are only just a 20 minute drive away. You'll find nearby the water parks and Marine Park - 'ZooMarine'

HI just to acknowledge the review posted , The leak in the apartment was caused by test holes drilled on the roof which we had no knowledge of and only found out about the leak the day before our guests arrived. We did call the Guests as soon as we knew as we wanted to make sure they enjoyed their holiday. We apologised at the short notice we gave them. I must compliment and thank the guests of how understanding they were to the situation. The leak stopped soon after they left as the test holes were filled in. The shutter was also repaired it took time to get the motor. We want to stress that our guests being happy and enjoying the experience of apartment B31 Quinta De Barracudda is most important to us, and as you can see from our reviews we achieve this. Unfortunately for this guest some thing happened out side our control but we did all we could to make sure our guest had a good holiday which thy did. Once again i want to thank our guest for been so understanding.

We stayed at Baracuda Apartments last summer and liked it so much that we are returning this year again! We holiday regularly at the Algarve but his apartment complex has by far been the best location to date. The view from the balcony was beautiful and a two minute stroll had us at a fantastic beach. The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable with everything that we needed for a fantastic holiday. It's ultimate selling point is it's location, if you enjoy having the beach on your doorstep and relaxing with a great view of the ocean and surrounding area then this ticks all of the boxes!
