The Algarve region

The borough of Albufeira is considered the tourist capital of the Algarve and therefore receives considerable investment into improvements of its tourist facilities and infrastructure. A favourite destination for everyone because of its multiple attractions whether you want a quiet romantic meal, a lively night life or something for the whole family to enjoy.

Free entertainment is provided in the squares throughout the summer and the beautiful, award winning beaches offer para gliding, various water sports and tours of the coast line and caves. Put together with the varied golf courses, glorious countryside, water parks and many other outdoor pursuits on offer, this is a destination that can't fail to fulfil all of your holiday expectations.

The old town has been transformed into a virtually car free zone and is therefore pedestrian friendly and aptly suitable for families with small children. The local authorities are making the town into an all year round resort and promote many free concerts (often accompanied by fire work displays at midnight) and sporting events throughout the year.

The Algarve is blessed with a temperate climate, boasting in excess of 3000 hours of sunshine per year, and therefore lends itself to outdoor living, the numerous and varied beaches being considered some of the best in the world having received many awards for cleanliness and safety.

The Portuguese people, renowned for their friendly charm, hospitality and excellent cuisine are one of Europes' best hosts. Try their fresh, locally caught fish, Sardines being one of their specialities, or their typical Algarvian dishes such as steak on the stone. If chicken is your desire then a "MUST" is to go to the village of Guia, the chicken piri piri capital of the world, which is only a short taxi ride away.

Central Albufeira

The apartment complex is perfectly situated overlooking the Old Town area, so while it benefits from being away from the over-populated 'touristy' areas, it's still just a few minutes walk from the Old Town, which now has escalator access down to the fisherman’s beach and square, where regular free concerts are staged throughout the summer months.

The Albufeira marina is a 30-minute gentle stroll from the apartment where boat trips can be booked for visits to the coastal caves, dolphin watching, deep-sea fishing, diving and snorkelling or a relaxing day long coastal boat trip with a BBQ lunch on a secluded beach. Concerts are also held at the marina during the high season.

For night life-seekers the famous Montechoro 'Strip' is a few Euros taxi ride away as are many famous golf courses, water slide parks and zoo marine which are also accessible by car, bus or taxi.

A tourist train also operates throughout the day and evening should you wish to explore the new town areas.

There's something to appeal to everyone, from the non stop night life found in the new town Strip, to the allure of relaxed alfresco dining overlooking the sea in the old town.

"Great Apartment, Fantastic Location"

I booked this appartment within a few weeks of travel and everything was seamless. Quick response to enquiry, detailed information on apartment and very detailed directions from the airport as we had hired a car. The location and views were brilliant. The apartment was well equipped and more than big enough for 2 people. We had no need to get in touch with the emergency contact as everything was exactly as it 'said on the tin'. Great holiday, would highly recommend this apartment which is 10 minutes from the lively centre of Albufeira but quiet and relaxing.

"Huge balcony with great views of Fishermans Beach and old town"

Albufeira is a hilly resort but this apartment is ideally situated a short walk from the escalators by the beach so not too much uphill walking! Taxis are plentiful and cheap if you don't want to walk too far. This apartment is spacious and well equipped with everything you need. There is a small supermarket and newsagent 5 mins away with a larger supermarket nearby. The best bit is sitting on the balcony (which also has sun loungers). We spent a lot of time relaxing there. Philippa arranged transfers for us which we're excellent. The complex was very quiet while we were there but the town was quite busy with mostly family groups holidaying there.

"Great Apartment - Amazing View"

This was our 2nd time staying in this block (stayed in Vista do Mar last year) the apartment is just up the hill a little from the top of the escalators and has magnificent views over the old town & Fisherman's Beach. The apartment was spotlessly clean & kitchen has fridge/freezer & washing machine, beds are comfortable and there is a safe for valuables. Also modern tv with all the UK channels, if interested (only used for catching up with the Paralympics). Our days were pretty lazy as the apartments have nice big balconies with 2 sunbeds and got the sun from around 11am until 7pm, great for sunbathing and reading. We did have a few nice morning walks along the beach (when the previous night was not too late). It is around 10 mins stroll into the old town or beach and there are many good bars and restaurants nearer if you can't be bothered going too far. A great apartment for a break in Albufeira with views that can't be bettered and we hope to be back again next year.
