The Algarve region
Our apartment is approximately 2km from the 'Old Town' set within the safe and secure Portuguese village style Clube Albufeira complex and is sited towards the quiet rear on the ground floor amongst mature and beautifully maintained grounds. There are 4 on-site swimming pools, the nearest being 'The Cascata', approximately 1 minute from the apartment, which is also heated for the cooler months with snack bars and restaurants offering local, European and 'A la Carte' dishes. You are close enough for a short walk into town or you can use the free courtesy shuttle bus from the 24 hour reception which has internet facilities, public telephone and ATM cash machine and whose friendly and helpful staff are there to help 24 hours a day with whatever query you may have.
The Old Town is charming with its cobbled side streets, bustling centre square, daily market stalls, evening entertainers, cafes, bars and fine restaurants right alongside the beautiful sandy Fishermans Beach. In addition the adjacent beach area of Priara d'Oura and the lively Montechoro strip offer thriving nightlife, cafes, bars, shops and restuarants to cater for all.
The Central Algarve stretches approximately 50 miles across with Faro its capital being a vibrant and cosmopolitan town steeped in history with plenty of traditional architecture and an abundance of nearby picturesque villages, golden sandy beaches and stunning golf courses.
The old fishing village of Albufeira, (made a town in 1986), is the most popular of these and it's not hard to see why with the whole area awash with dramatic coastline which is characterised by sandstone cliffs winding down onto plenty of long golden sandy beaches and with the wide choice of beaches and small coves it is possible with a little exploration to easily find a secluded spot even in the height of summer.
If you are an explorer you may wish to head inland where you will find some beautiful countryside and idyllic hamlets and villages or you can choose from numerous excursions out onto the water, whichever is your choice.
