Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The aparthotel is nestled in the hillside overlooking the Old Town and Fisherman's Beach. The apartment's balcony and huge windows are south facing, with a beautiful view making it very light and airy. Whilst there is a great sea view from the balcony, it's spectacular from the aparthotel's private pool and terrace! Just 2 minutes walk away you'll find the Old Town square with its numerous bars and restaurants, and the escalator down to Fisherman's Beach. The Montechoro 'Strip' and many golf courses are a short cab ride away. We can also help with competitive car hire or airport transfers should you require. On arrival you'll receive our 'welcome pack' with our own tips and helpful contacts that we've accrued during our own stays, and a few essentials to help you settle in. Over the last 3 winters we've completely refurbed, to give guests the benefit of wifi, new comfy bedroom & lounge, new kitchen & spacious shower. This is 'our place', we love it, & we'd like to share it with you!

The Algarve region
The borough of Albufeira receives a considerable percentage of the 5 million tourists who visit the Algarve annually. The frenetic summer season now extends into the rest of the year, for visitors of all ages and from all over the world. Its fabulous climate, with more than 3000 hours of sunshine per year, and the friendly charm of its people persuade many foreigners to move residence to the region, either temporarily or permanently. More people select Albufeira as their favourite destination because of its multiple attractions, i.e. the lively and social nightlife, the beautiful beaches, varied water sports, golf courses, glorious countryside and the local cuisine.
The aparthotel is perfectly situated overlooking the Old Town area, so while it benefits from being away from the over-populated 'touristy' areas, it's still just a couple of minutes walk from the Old Town Square & its famous huge selection of bars & restaurants, and the same to the beautiful Fisherman's Beach. For nightlife-seekers the famous Montechoro 'Strip' is a few Euros cab ride away, and at the other end of the scale, many of the area's famous golf courses are also easily reachable by car, bus or cab. There's something for everyone, from varied watersports to quiet walks.
