The Algarve region
Famous for its dramatic, rugged coastline and soft, sandy, unspoilt beaches, warmed by the Gulf Stream, and with over 300 days of sunshine every year, the Algarve makes the ideal destination for a relaxing and fun holiday in the sun.
Parque da Corcovada is located just ten minutes from the centre of Albufeira, the most well- known holiday resort on the Algarve. Albufeira itself is in the centre of the Algarve and is only about an hour and half’s drive from both the nature reserves on the furthest Eastern point on the boundary with Spain and the furthest Western point of the Algarve with its rugged Atlantic coastline. Beautiful lakes and hills are an hours drive to the Northwhile within walking distance of the complex to the South are numerous stretches of stunning white-sandy award winning beaches surrounded by beautiful cliffs and rugged coves.
Albufeira still retains much of a small-town charm. The narrow, cobbled streets of the old town are lined with white washed houses, restaurants, bars and shops. Each night fishing boats set off from the beach, returning with fresh fish to be sold in the local markets. A daily market sells handicrafts and jewellery and the pretty town square is a great place to watch the world go by. Bars and restaurants still sell authentic food and Portuguese wine at reasonable prices. The colours, flavours and aromas create unique moments of gastronomic tradition. In the surroundings of Parque da Corcovada, you can find beautiful, blue flag beaches. Most are served with a bar or restaurant with fantastic seafood and local dishes and the larger beaches feature extensive watersport facilities. Just five minutes walk away is the famous “Strip”, as it is referred to locally. . This is a lively, one kilometre long avenue leading to Praia da Oura (one of the nearby beaches) lined with dozens of cafes, restaurants and bars that keep open to the small hours and provide the very best in nightlife entertainment.
Golf on the Algarve is world famous and being centrally located in the Algarve, Parque da Corcovada is an ideal convenient base for golfers. The five Vilamoura courses are only 15 minutes drive away. Balaia, Salgados and Pine Cliffs a mere 5 minutes drive. Other great golf courses like Quinta do Lago, S. Lorenzo and Vale do Lobo or Vila Sol are just an easy half-hour drive away.
A wide range of other activities are available within the area. Tennis and horse riding are all within a 10 minute drive. Albufeira has a well equipped Marina supporting a wide range of water sports and organised activities such as fishing trips, scuba diving, dolphin watching and sailing can all be arranged from the town itself.
Other local tourist attractions include Zoomarine (www.zoomarine.com), Aqualand (www.aqualand.pt), Aquashow (www.aquashowpark.com), Krazy World (www.krazyworld.com) and Slide & splash (www.slidesplash.com) all within 30 minutes drive.
The Algarve Shopping Centre is 7km away from the apartment, with 9 cinema theatres, ten-pin bowling, shops, supermarkets, restaurants (including many international names) and free parking.

"Home from home in a great location!"
We had a fantastic 8 nights stay! Apartment was lovely and clean, spacious and well equipped with everything you could need. Pool area was lovely and relaxing and we had no trouble getting sun loungers at anytime. Felt very safe as there were security around day and night and often seen them walking around checking everything even at 4 am !!!
Just a few minutes walk to shops and the main 'strip' which was a bit too lively for us at night but was still lovely with good bars and restaurants! And a taxi journey to the 'old town' was only bout 5-10 mins and cost about €5! Def worth it!!
Rob and gill were very helpfull prior to our holiday, answering all my queries very quickly.
All in all a brilliant apartment in a great location that I hope to stay in again soon :-)
