A minutes walk from the front door takes you down a narrow cobbled street which ends at the sea overlooking the fabulous Albufeira and Fisherman' beaches (see photos). It is a 3-4 minute walk to get on to the beach! If you turn left out of the front door then the other end of the cobbled street takes you to the town square and Fisherman's beach entertainment zone with lots of sea view restaurants and bars playing live music. It is a 3-4 minute walk into the old town areas. The location meets the holiday needs of all age groups yet retains its charm and authenticity ie cobbled streets, white washed churches, fisherman's cottages and lush vegetation. Golfers can play golf at many local courses and return to the vibrant town for the evening and even better, walk back to the apt in minutes.

The apartment is local authority approved for 'tourist use' as summer and winter holiday rentals. The Algarve's all year sun means it is ideal for Golfers and Winter lets. Winter (Nov-Feb) temperatures range from 16C-23C. Albufeira is not a purpose built resort - it stays open over winter. Winter visitors and sunbathe, walk, tour during the day and Golfers can play golf at the many local courses and everyone can return to an open town centre for the evening and even better, walk back to the apt in minutes.
The Algarve region
The Algarve is sunny all year round with winter temperatures ranging between 16C-22C and summer temperatures ranging from 23C-33C. Because of its climate is a popular winter destination for tennis players, walkers and golfers. Find a sheltered sunny spot and you can sit in summer clothes and get a nice tan! The Algarve is famous for its beautiful golden sandy beaches that stretch the entire coastline and its stunning golf courses. Winter visitors can take tours to Lisbon or Spain's Andalusian cities of Sevilla, Cordoba, Granada or visit Marbella, Cadiz, Jerez and Gibraltar - all a 2-3 hour drive from the apartment. Golfers can play on courses, most only 10-30 mins drive from the apt, then return to a town centre with a huge selection of bars and restaurants just 3-4 minutes walk from the front door.
Albufeira is at the heart of the Algarve. With 7km of blue flag, golden sandy beaches and a vibrant old town centre, Albufeira is a holiday destination for all age groups and families too.
The sandy cliffs fringed with white-washed buildings and Mediterranean vegetation overlooking wide avenues of beach make spectacular scenery whilst the leafy town square, sea-front restaurants, bars and entertainments, shops and historic sights mean there is always someplace to go or something to see. What's more, all this is only a 200m or 3-4 minute walk from the front door of this apartment.
