The Algarve region
Albufeira, Portugal's most popular resort, has been described as the “Tourist Capital” of the Algarve, spreading from the old town both east and west along the coast, with its sandy coves & golden beaches attracting all ages,from families with young kids to retired couples.
Retaining all the character of its fishing village origins, Albufeira has become a lively, sought-after and fashionable resort with its beautiful sandy beaches. Albufeira is a very popular holiday destination offering something for everyone from the Old Town with its narrow cobbled streets, the numerous sandy beaches nearby and the cafes, bars and restaurants of 'the strip'.
A unique atmosphere can be experienced in the Old Town with its white washed houses and Moorish arches around the main square. You can relax on 'Praia da Pescadores' or Fisherman's beach where the fishermen can still be seen bringing in their catches. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants along the promenade, some with roof terraces overlooking the sea. Many have outdoor seating available for a spot of 'al fresco' dining where you can relax and enjoy a glass of Portuguese wine whilst watching the world go by.
The eastern side of Albufeira is lively with busy nightspots. 'The strip' leads down to Praia da Oura beach which is a golden sandy beach. In this area , there is a huge range of restaurants and shops which are open throughout the evening in the summer.
Local activities include diving, surfing, swimming, tennis, walking, sailing, cycling, fishing, horse riding, golf, wind-surfing, water skiing, and paragliding.
Parque da Corcovada amenities
The complex of Parque da Corcovada is closely located to restaurants, bars, cafes, supermarkets and fruit / veg markets. On site, there is a snack bar with a full range of very reasonably priced Portuguese and European dishes. The snack bar also has a full bar, internet access, and dining areas outsdie on a large terrace. Excursions, day-trips, and boat trips can be booked at the Modelo shopping centre or at the local reception.( Mon - Fri).
Everything is so convenient that a car would not be absolutely necessary. Taxis are locally available and are reasonably priced. The local bus route runs regularly from outside the complex every half hour. A tourist train also runs every 20 minutes from a nearby stop on the strip down to Praia da Oura and to the Old Town. Parque da Corcovada is close to two sandy beaches within walking distance and within driving distance of 23 other beaches.
Leisure activities and attractions
For the more adventurous, the 'not to be missed', 'jeep safaris' can be arranged at reception. For the whole family there is Zoomarine in Guia (www.zoomarine.com), Slide and Splash (www.slideandsplash.com), Krazyworld (www.krazyworld.com), Aqualand (www.aqualand.com), Aquashow (www.aquashow.com) all within a short drive away. There is also Lagos Zoo and karting at Almancil. Sea angling trips and boat trips can also be arranged along the coast which depart from Portimao, Albufeira marina and Vilamoura.
Nearby shopping centres in the town centre are Modelo and Pingo Doce. Algarve Shopping Centre is the largest shopping centre in the area with 130 stores, 45 fashion stores, a hypermarket (Continente), 9 cinemas (English films), 12 bowling lanes and free parking. There are also markets in all of the Algarve towns.
Other Activities great for children include the Bellavista Leisure Park which has quad bikes,mini-golf, tennis,soccer,ball pools, and bouncy castles.
Portugal's variety of landscape is surprising and captivating with sunshine year-round and bordered by clean blue ocean from South to North. The Algarve in particular is a Golfer's paradise where the courses can be played almost every day of the year. The courses also have good services and facilities. There are three courses within 10 minutes drive of Parque da Corcovada. These are Salgados, the Sheraton Pine Cliffs and the 9 hole Balaia course.

"Spacious, well appointed, clean and comfortable apartment"
Really enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. The weather was not too good at the time we visited but the apartment is fitted with heaters which were quite adequate to keep us warm. It has two large balconies, one overlooking the well kept gardens and large pool area which was nice and sunny. Just a short walk to from the Strip, famous for its bars and restaurants and entertainment, also closer to good supermarket and other good restaurants, e.g The Cockerel Country Kitchen (2 for 1) and the Happy House Chinese Buffet (all you can eat). Thank you Kelly (Manager) for greeting us and showing us around the apartment. She was always available to answer any queries/questions. Had a lovely stay and will certainly be back.

It was airy light and exceeded by expectations by miles. The organisation and administration was efficient, fast, effective and very helpful. I would and have recommended it to friends and will certainly visit again!
