At the very end of the Strip, and down “cardiac hill” you will find the beautiful Oura beach. All in all Albufeira is very popular with couples, families, the young and livelies and, of course, the young at heart. Fantastic holidays for everyone.
ALBUFEIRA; "OLD TOWN" this old part of Albufeira is a pedestrianised maze of cobbled streets centred round the main square. In and around the main square you will find lively bar's and fantastic restaurants where you can sample the local dish of grilled sardines caught fresh from the famous Fishermans Beach.
BULLFIGHTING ARENA; The Algarve is due to host around 30 bull fights this year, with the "Albufeira Bullfight Arena" to host the majority of these to celebrate 30 years of uninterrupted activity. Some of the most renowned bullfighters in Portugal will be appearing at Albuferia's bullfighting ring including; João Moura, Joaquim Bastinhas, Marcos Tenório (Bastinhas Jr.), Tito Semedo, Luís Rouxinol, Sónia Matias, Ana Batista, Rui Salvador and Tomaz Pinto.

GOLF LOCATION; Stella Maris is in the centre of 11 international Golf Courses all within 15min drive. Listes are some of these fantastis courses. For Golfers this is the "Golf Mecca of Europe"
PORTUGAL GOLF MASTERS;
The introduction to the Portugal Masters recognizes the quality of the golf facilities and tourism infrastructures that now exists in Portugal's Algarve, enabling the country to welcome the elite of golf professionals, world-wide coverage by the international press with an expected 35,000 spectators attending the event. With its presence on the PGA's European Circuit, the Portugal Masters will further enhance Portugal's Algarve position as one of the finest golf destinations in the world.
Balaia Golf Course.
Imagine….tumbling out of bed and walking just a few yards to the clubhouse and first tee. When you've finished your round on this little gem of a 9 hole par 3 course, take a leisurely dip in one of the 6 outdoor pools close by…. or perhaps a workout in the gym followed by a few lengths of the indoor pool or laze in its corner Jacuzzi. Or perhaps even a session in the steam room and a relaxing massage. Later, take a little tennis or a bucket of balls on the 50 bay driving range. Want to improve your game? At Balaia you can take lessons from the professional at the village's own golf school.
Nick Faldo Golf Course;
Designed by Sir Nick Faldo with strategic play in mind this 6598m par 72 championship course demands careful positioning to score well. “The land at Amendoeira is dramatic and the project has the potential to be a real talking point in the Algarve. With so many courses in the region, that's no mean feat,” pointed out Nick Faldo, during his visit in 2007. Nick said: “This was a very exciting project, which gave me a great opportunity to exploit my passion for design the same way I exploited my passion for playing. You have incredible views, beautiful undulating land and any time you have natural terrain like this, it is great fun to work with.”
Laguna Golf Course;
The Laguna golf course is situated very close to the beautiful coastline of the Algarve and with water as a constant presence, this course gives an enduring challenge for any player. Opened in 1990 and designed by Joseph Lee, the Laguna Golf Course makes full use of the wet, marshy ground near the sea. The layout is very different from the two other Vilamoura courses. Here the golfer can drive off more confidently, because of the greater width of the fairways. Strategically placed bunkers are the main difficulty and water is a nearly permanent obstacle, not to mention the bunkers. Lee may have designed a course that is visually intimidating, but as it is not very long, the golfer may complete it without great difficulty. The result is that the satisfaction for the golfer, after finishing his game, is even greater. There are several ways to play this course, as one soon discovers at hole number 5 which is 315 metres for a Par 4, with a lake covering the right-handed dogleg. Here the player's options for the first shot range from a driver to a number five iron. The player must reflect that by choosing a wood the second shot will be significantly shorter. But this also brings the water into play, so highly increasing the risks.
Millennium Golf Course;
The original course architect Martin Hawtree has extended his original plan of the original 27 holes of the old Laguna Course by adding a further 9. Though this addition he has successfully created two distinctly different 18 hole courses. All the new additional holes are to be found on the Millennium Course and wander amongst a forest of pine trees common to many parts of the Algarve. This course has some subtle and interesting variations to confront even the experienced golfer.
Christy O´Connor Jnr, Golf Course;
AMENDOEIRA, ALGARVE, Portugal – Several years ago, European golfers discovered Portugal's Algarve, where a temperate climate allowed golf to be played year-round. Today, this sunny coastal region has more than 37 golf courses. Still, the Algarve, once called “Al-Garbe” by the Arabs who formerly lived in the region, has flown under the radar of many American golfers. Now, the debut of Oceanico Group's two golf courses by Nick Faldo and Christy O'Connor Jr. in the luxury, 640-acre, Moorish-style Amendoeira Golf Resort should create a stir from golfers across the pond. While the Faldo Course is set into the hills, the O'Connor Course in the Algarve is laid along the flatter valley plain, a pretty track set against a backdrop of the Monchique Mountains.
Pine Cliffs Golf Course;
The 9-hole golf course developing through the pine grove requires precise play. The 'Devil's Parlour', famous throughout the world, is a challenging PAR 3 crossing the chasm below the cliffs and offering sumptuous views over the Atlantic Ocean. The Pine Cliffs golf course golf academy features the very best in golfing facilities, meeting the requirements of amateur as well as professional players. The practice area includes a driving range with 9 different flag positions which can be approached from various directions and distances: between 50 and 200m, offering perfect conditions to practice short play and putting. There is a chipping and pitching area as well as a large putting green area. In the golf shop you can add to your golf equipment, and hire everything you need for a perfect round. The magnificent terrace of the Golf Club House is the perfect place for a drink or a snack after the game.
Pinhal Golf Course;
This popular course in Vilamoura runs through a pine tree forest typical of the area. The first holes wander past the mature holiday villas that line both sides of the fairways. Carefully placed bunkers makes the course very enjoyable to the average player. The course is a good test to the choice of individual clubs and the player's accuracy. The fourth hole which is a par-4 is a demanding to achieve with water hazards waiting for the wayward shot. The par-3 eighth hole which is only 149 metres in length may prove to be more tricky than it appears at first sight. The last nine holes home have generally have a more generous fairways. The fifteenth par-4 often proves more of a problem to reach par then to actually play.
Salgados Golf Course;
The course is set on the flat lands behind the sandy beach of Praia de Galé. The environmental nature of the course is to associate it with a typical Links Course but with the added asset of the sun. It is very open to the elements with little vegetation and lots of water hazards. It requires a technically skilled player to achieve a good result from a round due to the prevailing onshore breeze.
The Old Course;
Situated in the heart of Vilamoura a mere 20 minute drive from Faro airport, this Frank Pennink designed parkland style layout is one of the oldest in the region and renowned all over the golfing world. Often described as the Grande Dame of Algarve courses, it meanders throughout impressive pine trees – the principal hazard – over gently undulating natural terrain. Although it opened in 1969, the course was completely renovated and modernised 27 years later although no major changes were made to the magnificent layout. In addition to raising the Oceanico Old Course to new heights of quality, an attractive new clubhouse and adjacent putting green were also built at that time. As with all Oceanico courses, environmental protection practices are strictly adhered to by means of detailed management systems in line with guidelines established by ISO 14001 standards, Green Globe and Committed to Green programmes. This is one of the courses in Portugal that will always stay in the memory of visiting golfers.
Victoria Golf Course;
The Victoria Clube de Golfe Course is laid out over virtually flat terrain covering some 90 hectares it includes a series of constructed mounds specially landscaped to emulate the outline of inland hills on the horizon – a feature that enriches the course with a sense of movement and harmony. The series of beautiful lakes and waterfalls also helps to provide an attractive background whilst playing the course. This is at present the longest 18 holes golf course in Portugal and promises to be a notable course in Europe. Each hole has a minimum of five tees from which to play thus making the course suitable for golfers of all handicap levels. Before playing it could be advisable to take advantage of the immense putting green of around 2,500 m2 to “feel the green” in that very important end game.
Vile Sol Golf Course;
The English architect of this course has carefully maintained the original topographical nature of this undulating terrain. Changes when necessary have been kept to a minimum to preserve the natural state of being. The outward nine-holes are testing for a golfer starting with a par-4 of 381 metres. Next an even longer par-4 hole, then another par-4 of 385 metres. To follow the sixth and eighth holes, both par-5s, are awaiting the player with each a little under 500 metres. The back nine has two par-3 holes that are attractively designed. The par-5 on the fourteenth is particularly difficult to achieve with a tricky green awaiting the player.

"Stella Maris - our home away from home..."
We were lucky enough to stay in this apartment in July 2013. We flew into Faro and drove to Stella Maris in 40 mins or so. The apartment is located within a hotel which gives extra security and a free parking space was available in the underground car park. It is located between Vilamoura and Albufeira so we had the best of both worlds. It is also very close to the Sheraton hotel and Pine Cliffs golf course, which has some spectacular shots. The apartment is at the front of the hotel and has 2 bedrooms. It is very spacious with all mod cons, including a washing machine which came in really handy for us. It also has satellite TV with lots of English channels. Perfect to keep up with Eastenders/Corrie etc with a glass of vino in hand...home away from home! There is a huge balcony and it was lovely to sit out there and have breakfast every morning. You can also see the newly built 5 star hotel from the balcony. There are two bathrooms in the apartment so if you had two couples staying you could have a bathroom each which would be really handy.
Falesia beach is only a 10 min walk from the apartment...make sure and check out the breathtaking sunset over the beach and cliffs. We had a very relaxing stay here and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if we return to Portugal.
Thank you for your review. Reviews are very important so that I can improve my standards. Delighted to hear that you found the House Security and Free Underground Parking a peace of mind. The New 5 Star Neighbour you referred too also offers evening concerts to all visitors, so you can be assured of “Formal Nights” for your entertainment. I would be delighted to accommodate you your friends in the coming seasons.

"Fantastically located for the beach."
This apartment was brilliantly located for the beach. Only 5 min walk. The beach is fab and clean and runs for miles so lots of room. There is so many amenities near by like running track, gym, kids play area, swimming pool (that is very clean), eateries, bars.The food in the restaurant on site is lovely and again very clean and bright. We loved the relaxed feeling we got the minute we arrived. The staff in the complex are very friendly and helpfull. You can hire big beach towels at reception and swap these every day for clean ones so you dont need to bring these with you. We had a 3 year old with us and it was perfect location and not noisy at night time.
Thank you for your review. Delighted that you found the apartment, Hotel, and Location suitable for all of your activities. The Hotel staff is very passionate about their service which guarantees satisfaction in a relaxed atmosphere. The hotel boasts on the suitability for families, delighted to hear that you found the location suitable for your 3 year old.
I would be delighted to facilitate your family and friends in the future.
