Now in our 8th year as owners, we reinvest regularly to keep the apartment a real home from home for both us and our guests, a quarter of which have now become regulars! Thoughtful features include totally private wifi (so no sharing with neighbours and capable of coping with many devices at once), blackout curtains for great sleeps, and huge windows & patio doors for letting the sun in afterwards!

Comfy beds can be made up as double or twin singles as required, and there is a sofa bed & large corner sofa in the living area. Refurbed bathroom with spacious corner shower cabinet and separate bath with shower attachment. Modernised fully equipped kitchen with all home comforts including full-sized washing machine, microwave, fridge, hob, toaster etc.

Spacious living area with dining table & chairs, plus lounge area with large corner sofa & sofa bed, coffee table & TV/DVD player. Hi-fi with CD, mp3 compatibility & radio. For 2015 we've added a complete TV system, which means you can watch over 25 UK TV channels live or on demand.

For your comfort whatever time of year, movable heaters and fans are provided. Wifi internet available for use with guests' laptop/smartphones etc at no extra cost.

We also hold the Alojamento Local Portuguese Property License which all holiday rental properties are required to hold, but not all do!

Booking with an official license holder means you can be sure of a continued great standard of accommodation and cleanliness, so it's a good idea to always check the property you're booking holds one.

Old Town Square less than 5 minutes' walk away. Montechoro Strip 5 minute cab or scenic train ride. The Marina area with its beach, restaurant and bars also 5 mins cab ride. All cabs between the 3 points are around 4 euros.

Supermarkets, shopping centre, restaurants and bars all within a short walk. Range of cuisines catered for in the Old Town and Montechoro Strip, all within 5 minutes reach.

Talk to us about discounts for winter or longer term lets.....perfect base for exploring the Algarve with parking just outside for your hire car or a short walk to the main bus depot...wifi to keep you in touch with home...short stroll to year round supermarket, shops, restaurants and bars...stretch out by the pool - you'll probably have it to yourself in the off peak season...well equipped kitchen so you can invite friends over for dinner in the spacious dining area, and the full-sized washing machine is a must...snuggly duvets, piles of blankets and heating to keep you toasty when the sun goes down....enjoy the warm afternoon sun streaming into the comfy lounge and a cosy night in with our LED tv, DVDs or help yourself to a good book...lazy mornings with freshly squeezed juice or an alfresco pot of coffee on the balcony....and of course we'll keep the apartment cleaned and your linen & towels refreshed.

Further details outdoors

Complex with well established plantings and gardens. Nice shared pool and terrace area with snack bar and fantastic sea views. Please note not all the facilities eg. pool snack bar are open all year - please check if visiting out of season and this is important to you.

Further details

The complex has a few steps, so may not be suitable for less mobile guests.

Balcony is only one storey from pool and garden height, and balcony sides are hip height to an adult.

We are non-smokers, and would ask that guests also respect this inside the apartment.

The Algarve region

The borough of Albufeira receives a considerable percentage of the 5 million tourists who visit the Algarve annually. The frenetic summer season now extends into the rest of the year, for visitors of all ages and from all over the world. Its fabulous climate, with more than 3000 hours of sunshine per year, and the friendly charm of its people persuade many foreigners to move residence to the region, either temporarily or permanently. More people select Albufeira as their favourite destination because of its multiple attractions, i.e. the lively and social nightlife, the beautiful beaches, varied water sports, golf courses, glorious countryside and the local cuisine.

Central Albufeira

The aparthotel 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 couple of minutes walk from the Old Town Square & its famous huge selection of bars & restaurants, and the same to the beautiful Fisherman's Beach. For nightlife-seekers the famous Montechoro 'Strip' is a few Euros cab ride away, and at the other end of the scale, many of the area's famous golf courses are also easily reachable by car, bus or cab. There's something for everyone, from varied watersports to quiet walks.

"A perfect apartment for a sunshine break!"

I stayed at Cerro Branco Apartment (owned/ run by Becky & Mandy) and I was over the moon with my stay. The apartment is clean, well located (2 minutes walk from shops and 5 minutes to the beach and Old town area that has lots of restaurants, bars and shops!) and you feel safe when staying there. There is a large living room area with a TV, stereo and comfortable furniture that presents a stunning view. The dinning area is spacious with a large dinner table to eat meals. The kitchen is modern and well equipped with everything you need (toaster, kettle, cutlery, plates, cups etc). The bedroom is a large size with built in wardrobes and the bathroom is modern with a terrific shower and separate bath tub. Not forgetting the balcony which can be enjoyed on a hot day / cool evening. The owners have thought of every single detail to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable - including a booklet that gives you everything you need to know. I felt like this apartment was a home from home and I would highly recommend to anyone wanting a nice sunshine break!

"Fantastic Apartment"

My daughter and I have just come back from a week in your apartment we loved every minute of it. It was clean as was the whole complex. The view was fantastic you could see all over Albufeira, at night it was a lovely sight to see. The bus station was within easy walking distance and from there we traveled to Portimao Lagos and Silves. Mandy made the whole booking process easy answering any questions we had and also arranged for Lynn to book our airport transfers. I can't wait to visit again. Thanks to Mandy Beccy and Lynn who made it such a hassle free holiday. Best Wished Pauline and Sharon

"A fabulous apartment"

Stayed for 1 week at the beginning of March with my wife in this fabulous apartment. It is very spacious, spotlessly clean and very well maintained. The view from the huge windows or balcony are nothing else but stunning. It takes less than 10 minutes to walk to the top of the escalators which will take you down to the beech. There are shops, restaurants and bars within a five minute walk. The apartment itself has everything you need and more, from fans to keep you cool to heaters to keep you warm. The description the owners give is very accurate from full kitchen to bath and shower cubicle. The swimming pool area look ideal, but unfortunately for us it was just about to open when we left. The apartment block is up a slight bank at the end of the street, but believe me it is well worth it. Mandy, the owner I dealt with could not be more helpful from advice about the resort to airport transfers. This is truly a fabulous apartment, don’t miss out! John Kendall, Tyne and Wear

"Fabulous Apartment with stunning views."

Stayed here for a month in February 2015,mature couple. Loved the apartment,what a stunning view over the Old Town and over to the sea. It was a home from home. Loved the cosy feel in the evenings,on the nights we dined in,lovely dining table,comfy sofas,and very comfy beds. Loved the huge balcony,where we had al fresco lunches and sundowners in the evenings. The proximity to the beaches and the old town,with all its shops and restaurants is superb Also well placed for banks,supermarkets and also the little train to Montechoro. Complex,well maintained,everyone was very friendly. Would definitely recommend.

"Great Apartment"

My wife and I stayed at the Cerro Branco from the 20th -24th Oct 14 and had a fantastic time. The weather was excellent ( around 30 deg most of the time ) and this probably made the holiday, as we were looking forward to some winter sunshine. Mandy was quick to respond to all our questions and everything went smooth and efficient, from our initial contact until we left on our last morning. The Apartment was spacious, had a wonderful view over the Old Town and its obvious that Mandy and Becky use this as their second home as the place is so well equipped and comfortable. As we were there in October, we had the pool area to ourselves and rarely saw anyone else when we went for our daily swims. Cerro Branco is situated about 5 mins from the old town, where we spent most of our time, it's a great place to unwind at night, with plenty of good restaurants and live music etc. This was our 3rd time in Albufeira, but first without the kids, and we will be back, hopefully we will get a chance to stay at Mandy and Becky's again, to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine, and enjoy the beautiful sunset over the Old Town. Thanks again for the use of your apartment David and Ruth

"great apartment ....good location.."

The apartment was exactly what we were looking for ....really tastefully decorated and comfortable with everything we needed for a great holiday! We especially enjoyed our 'siesta' in the afternoon, glass of wine in hand, whilst taking in the mesmerizing view from the balcony . Mandy and Beccy were in contact with us the whole time prior to leaving and made sure they had every base covered regarding any questions we had... The location is very good and only five minutes to the old town and beach we had a fantastic time there...again thanks for a great holiday!! ps Try the Havana bar just a 30 second walk from the apartment we loved it ..especially the music ( if you like Santana that is :) !!!
