About the home

The Algarve / Central Algarve region
The Algarve is one of the world's most attractive holiday destinations offering 160 km of gorgeous, golden, sandy beaches, rocky coves, clear waters, rugged cliffs and enchanting grottoes.
The region is blessed with a wonderful climate, ideal for swimming, sunbathing and water sports in summer, and mild enough in spring, autumn and winter for tennis, golf, clifftop or countryside walking, exploring and sightseeing.
Despite the obvious influence of tourism, a short drive inland reveals the true Algarve where life goes on much as it has for many centuries. This brightly coloured and verdant region is filled with orange groves, almond trees in blossom, carob and fig trees, and fragrant pines as well as some cork farms which are still in operation today.
The Mediterranean plants and trees put on a magnificent show throughout the year and there are plenty of nature parks and sanctuaries along the whole of the Algarve that attract many animals and birds.
For the sports enthusiasts, the Algarve has ideal conditions and top class facilities; The Algarve boasts a multitude of golf courses with many enjoying highly prized reputations. Watersports are second to none with the West coast beaches offering the best surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing conditions.
Places of interest include the region's capital Faro and its old town, Loule and its market situated in a recently renovated Moorish building, Silves and its red fortress, Caldas de Monchique for its thermal waters, Portimao’s old town and port, Lagos for its vitality and historical interest and Cabo de S. Vicente with its imposing light-house.
Above all, the Algarve is a children's haven with several exciting water parks, 'Zoomarine' sealife centre, horse riding centres and plenty of fun on the beaches!
Whatever your preference, you will find your personal paradise in the Algarve.
The Albufeira / Corcovada area
Corcovada is ideally placed as, although it is in a quiet setting on the outskirts of Albufeira, it is just a five minute walk from the famous "strip" and many restaurants and nightlife. There are also several supermarkets within walking distance.
The beach at Praia d’Oura (10-15 min walk) offers a wide variety of watersports, including windsurfing, water-skiing, parascending, jet skis and the always popular, banana boat rides, whilst scuba diving can be found in the next cove along. Many boat trips depart from Praia d’Oura - 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, and Albufeira can be reached on foot along the coast.
Santa Eulalia beach is also just 15 min walk and offers beautiful golden sands, perfect for children.
The nearest golf course is Balaia Golf which is situated in the Santa Eulalia area of Albufeira.
Zoo Marine is based in Guia a short car/bus ride. Zoo Marine features dolphin and tropical bird shows, an aquarium, fairground rides and swimming pools surrounded by beautiful lakes and gardens.
Old town Albufeira is about 1km away, just a short ride on the "tourist train" which operates throughout the year . Here there is a mixture of the historic and traditional flavour of the Algarve with cobbled streets and picturesque leafy town squares, plus a superb variety of restaurants, bars and shops. The Old Town is a very safe family orientated area with free entertainment available nightly at many bars in the summer season.
For many visitors the golden sandy beaches and the vibrant nightlife offered here provide the perfect holiday ingredients.

This apartment is gorgeous! Huge 3 bedroomed apartment only 5 mis walk from 'the strip'. Pool is lovely and quiet, big enough to have a good swim. The photos don't do the apartment justice. Extremely clean, all appliances and furniture are of a very high standard my only negative would be that the beds are really squeaky! Lots df sun beds around the pool. The couple who met us at the apartment were really helpful and gave us lots of info on the area.
