This beautiful, spacious, south-facing apartment, with air conditioning throughout boasts an ideal location on the prestigious Corcovada complex in Praia D'Oura. There are many beautiful golden sandy beaches in the vicinity, the nearest being Praia Da Oura and Praia de Santa Eulalia, both within 2 kms away, whilst the Corcovada shuttle bus will take you to Fisherman's beach in Albufeira's Old Town, a short 3 km journey. Just 500 metres from Corcovada you'll find a tremendous selection of shops, supermarkets, restaurants and family friendly bars on the popular “Strip” in the resort of Praia D'Oura. Bus stops and taxi ranks are also within easy reach. Within beautifully landscaped gardens, each block at Corcovada has its own exclusive swimming pool and children's pool with sun beds and parasols provided. On site there is a café, restaurant and children's play area.
This is a large and modern apartment. Equipped with TV and a DVD, the lounge-dining room is beautifully decorated with wooden floors, air-conditioning/heating, two large leather sofas, an arm chair and a contemporary style dining suite with patio doors leading to a balcony that is perfect for relaxing and watching the sun go down! The dining kitchen has all modern appliances. Two bedrooms have large double beds, fitted wardrobes and dressing tables with air-conditioning/heating, the third smaller bedroom has twin beds and wardrobe is located in hall way. The apartment's master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and private balcony with sun beds.
This wonderful apartment is ideally suited for families and groups. We have received some excellent feedback from the clients in relation to the quality and spaciousness of the Apartment as well as its brilliant location - within walking distance of all facilities and the beach but still located in a private complex (best of both worlds!).

The Algarve region
Portugal's southernmost region known as the Algarve has established itself as a firm favourite holiday destination for people from all over Europe as well as the rest of the world. This is due mainly to its almost tropical climate boasting over 3000 hours of annual sunshine. With its stunning long sandy beaches, majestic cliff facings, secret coves and caves contrasting with the inland of mountains, almond blossom covered hills and quaint hidden towns the Algarve has something to offer for everyone.
There are many major attractions for all the family to enjoy including Zoo Marine (where you can swim with the dolphins), horse riding on the beach and some brilliant fun filled water parks all within a half hour drive of the house - Aqualand and Slide & Splash being the most popular. The parks all provide buses that will transfer you to and from the Parks.
Locally there is golfing, tennis, horse riding and a sports facility. If you want to get away from the coast for the day then a drive to Monchique and Foia (the highest point of the Algarve) is highly recommended. On the way you could visit the castle in Silves and stop for lunch of chicken Piri-Piri in the small mountain town of Monchique. It will take you less than an hour to get there.
Two large shopping centres are 'Algarve Shopping' in Guia and 'The Forum' in Faro just 20-30 minutes by car. The Algarve Shopping is a large mall which is approx. 15 minutes drive away. Here you will find a variety of shops, a big supermarket, a bowling alley, a multi-screen cinema (most films are in English with Portuguese sub titles) and a food hall.
Alternative ways of exploring the Algarve are by joining one of the many jeeps that head out each day (high season) to explore the unspoilt Algarve. This is a great day out for the family and will pick up and drop off in the area.
There are great boat trips leaving from both Albufeira and Vilamoura marinas every day. You can choose from a full or a half day and this can often include a trip into the caves and grottoes of the beautiful Algarvian coast line. If you fancy a drive into Spain then the border is only a 50 minute drive and Seville approx two hours depending on traffic.
As the Algarve spans a large area with wonderful sights and attractions, car hire is highly recommended to explore, but not essential for this property as there are a number of good restaurants and bars within walking distance and the beach is a 5-6 minute walk away. Taxis are reasonably priced. Transfers can also be arranged for you if requested.
This area offers great holiday opportunities throughout the year with golf courses, water sports, shopping, beaches and a huge variety of restaurants. Areias Sao Joao, offers many shops, bars, restaurants and clubs, many of which are situated on the 'The Strip' which runs from Montechoro to the beach at Praia da Oura.
For many visitors the golden sandy beaches and the vibrant nightlife of Albufeira here provides the perfect holiday ingredients. The nearest golf course is Balaia Golf which is situated in the lovely Eulalia area of Albufeira.
Children and teenagers on holiday in Albufeira will enjoy the Zoo Marine centre at Guia, as well as the English-Language cinemas, bowling, the lovely park 'Slide and Splash' in Lagoa is a fun day out for all the family with separate area for very young children to enjoy. Zoo Marine is based in Guia a short car/bus ride. Zoo Marine features tropical bird shows, and aquarium, fairground rides and swimming pools surrounded by beautiful lakes and gardens.
Old town Albufeira is about 1km away. There is a mixture of the historic and the traditional flavour of the Algarve with cobbled streets and picturesque leafy town squares, plus a great variety of restaurants, bars and shops. The beach at Praia d'Oura offers a wide variety of water sports including windsurfing, water-skiing, parascending, jet skis and the always popular, banana boat ride whilst scuba diving can be found in the next cove along.
Many boat trips depart from Prais D'Oura which is a great way to explore the hidden grottoes of the stunning Algarve coastline - and there are plenty of fishing trips available. There are many smaller quieter coves to be found around Praia d'Oura, around Albufeira that can be reached on foot along the coast. There are wonderful cliff-top paths along the Algarve coast in both directions which can be taken.
