Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Aldeia Formosa is a development adjacent to the beach, the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve and close to 5 golf courses. The apartment is light and spacious and has been furnished to a superior standard. It is on the first and second floors of a 3 storey block, accessed through a gated courtyard with entry phone. The pedestrian exit from the secure car park also brings you into the gated courtyard. There are south facing balconies on each floor with impressive sea views. Sandy beaches are only 2 minutes walk away and numerous affordable restaurants and coffee bars line the waterfront. Benamor golf course is less than 2km away and several other courses are within easy reach. Cabanas is a fishing village catering for a wide variety of outdoor interests - tennis, fishing, cycling, bird watching, walking, kite surfing and water sports. The train station is a 12 minute walk away.
For the 2010 season the council radically upgraded the waterfront with an elevated wooden walkway the entire length of the village and new palm trees.
