Old Town Albufeira Apartment
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This apartment is legally registered 'Alojamento Local” with Albufeira 'Camera' the local council.
Please bare in mind If the property you're renting is not registered and the owners are caught by the authorities the first thing they will do is close it down until they do comply, or for good. This means that you may not get the holiday you wanted or paid for or that the rates quickly go up due to “unforeseen circumstances” You can always find cheaper but you will never find better.
Built in 2002 this 2 bedroom ground floor apartment right on (above) the beach, you will be the envy of any friends you make here, as they have to travel back to their hotel or apartment: You only have to go up a gentle slope, or if this is too much effort there is a lift from the main beach to the top road (our road) lazy but brilliant. You will see many photos of our location on postcards and in magazines, there are of course many other beaches if you like walking or want to travel; if you hire a car we have a secure underground garage. On leaving our apartment block you are on the coast road on top of the old town tunnel which connects the old town square to the beach. Location Location Location. Albufeira, has two distinct areas the old fisherman's wharf with the fisherman's houses, these are very small both inside and out but are charismatic, and Albufeira's new town 'about 1 km apart' is a very modern throbbing town, and the hurl burly busy part is called the Strip.
We pride ourselves on attention to detail including secure internet connection and international TV.
Albufeira is made up of two main sections. The New Town and the Old Town. The difference between the two is, in the new town developers can build almost anything they want with consent, whereas the old town has much stricter rules and new development is difficult. The old town is small with little fisherman cottage style houses - these are quite small and very quaint but they can be very cold in winter and very hot in the summer. Our apartment is in the Old Town but a modern 2002 new build which offers the best location with the best possible facilities.
Old town has 2 beautiful squares new town do not have squares at all.
Self-catering accommodation in Albufeira means that you can tailor your holiday exactly to your tastes, choosing a balance of sunbathing, walking, shopping, eating and enjoying the night-life.

The Algarve region
Around & About in Albufeira.
Enjoy a boat trip from fisherman's beach during the summer months or walk along the many secluded beaches where you can while away hours with a book or friends. There are dozens of beautiful beaches all around us and the best way to discover them is with a boat trip along the coast taking from 1 to 2 hours talk to the lady at the beach desk. These are not big boats here, only holding about 8 to 10 people, and there is often only one crew member who will be more than happy to point out these place of interest letting you swim in the sea and explore the caves.
For bigger boat trips why not go to Portimão, from here you can go on trips lasting from 1 hour to a whole day.
The train station is at Ferreiras 4 km from the apartment and from here you can take a day trip via train to Lisbon for around 30 Euros.
There are many beautiful places to visit in Portugal and Albufeira is centrally located to visit them all. We have many local attractions ourselves, be your interest in historical places or beautiful churches quaint towns or sunny beaches you will not be disappointed here.
Albufeira is made up of two main sections. The New Town and the Old Town. The difference between the two is, in the new town developers can build almost anything they want with consent, whereas the old town has much stricter rules and new development is difficult.

Our apartment is in the Old Town but is a modern 2002 new build which offers the best location with the best possible facilities.
For the children you have a choice of 5 water parks including zoo marine the biggest and by far the most popular of them all, with buses going to the park from the old town.

"A wonderful place to stay in Old Town Albuferia"
This apartment was everything the listing stated and more. The location above the tunnel to the beach was perfect. We spent a lot of time on the beach, shopping and dining in the many restaurants. We easily took a day train trip to Lisbon. You can get a taxi to the station at the nearby hotel.
Thank you so much for your kind comments, we appreciate your taking the trouble to write it, as I say in my advert we are new to renting out our home and reviews really are valued.

"We will definitely go back, fun, relaxed and a great place to unwind"
We've stayed at the apartment a few times in the past, with our children and freinds. The apartment is spacious, bright, very clean and has all the equipment you need if bringing a large family to stay!!! The beach is a stone throw away and is ideal to take the kids, it's clean, plenty of room, so you never feel that people are "on top of you", sport activities and sunbeds, althought these cost approx 7 euro, well worth it for comfort and shade, as it does get hot! The town is lovely, withplently of resturants and bars, most are family friendly and in the evening, nice to sit in the square with a glass of wine and watch the world go by. As it's the old town, ideal for famillies or a weekend with friends to relax and unwind. We love it and will be back!
Thank you for your kind review, we love having happy people back anytime.

"This beautiful apartment is private and secure while being in the most perfect location for the beach and all amenities."
This apartment is located in the historical area near the oldest hotel in Albufeira, The Sol e Mar. This means within 5 mins you can be on the beach, in one of numerous bars overlooking the beach, or one of those lining the main square, or streets in the surrounding areas. Also within 5 mins is all the free entertainment frequently staged nearby. There are a great variety of restaurants offering a selection of cuisines at a variety of prices, and many food stores selling all necessary provisions.
Thank you for your kind review.
