About this location

The Algarve region

The Algarve has long been a favoured destination for holidays.

It has a fantastic all-year round climate and can boast more sunshine hours than California!

You can often see temperatures hit the mid 30's, thanks to the see breezes its always a pleasant heat.

With over 100 miles of dramatic cliff faces and extensive golden beaches, the Algarve offers a dramatic coastline, and beautiful clear seas to swim, sail, surf in or simply watch the boats sailing by.

There is something for everyone, whether you're after a relaxing day, watersports or simply viewing the many tourist attractions.


Albufeira is regarded as the tourist capital of the Algarve offering good cuisine, shopping,, local markets, night-life and relaxation

The town itself offers an interesting contrast with its two distinct areas known as The Old Town with Marina, cobbled streets and newly refurbished square, and the well known 'Strip' with its many shops, restaurants, bars, bull ring and vibrant night-life.

With over 3,000 hours of sunshine you can enjoy the many glorious long sandy beaches in Albufeira. These golden shores with dramatic cliffs and rock formations make this area a wonderful destination both in summer and winter.

Some of best and most beautiful beaches in the entire world are to be found here, many have been awarded prestigious Blue Flags for their cleanliness.

The nearest beach to the apartment is Santa Eulalia (approx 1km). It is a short walk away, or you can use the bus which stops immediately outside the apartment complex.


The Algarve has many pristine golf courses where you can play all year round.

There are 3 local golf courses a short drive away at Salgados (18 holes), Pine Cliffs (9 holes) Balaia Golf (9 holes). Some of the other top golf courses in Vilamoura include Victoria, Millenium, Pinhal, and Old Course which are approximately 15 minutes drive away.


Faro is the nearest airport approx 35m away / 30-35 minutes drive. Car hire is available at the airport. Airport pick ups can be arranged, if requested. Taxis are also available at the airport. As the apartment is centrally located to many of the local attractions, car hire is not essential. If, however, you want to explore the Algarve further,car hire is available at very reasonable rates. The local bus service is very efficient and reliable if you do not wish to drive.


Excellent location within Albufeira close to the Globe roundabout with easy access to the Algarve's towns, villages, beaches, attractions and world class golf courses.

"The Strip", bull ring - 5/10 minute walk.

Beach -15 minute walk.

Nearest local golf course - 10 minute drive.

Algarve Shopping Centre with shops, restaurants cinemas, bowling - 15 minute drive.

Vilamoura/Marina / golf - 15 minute drive.

"Highly recommended for any type of holiday"

I stayed here on holidays with 3 friends. We had a ball I'd highly recommend this apartment. The apartment itself is alot bigger than we expected . The living room area has a dvd player , a hi fi and large flat screen TV , lots of seating space . The bedrooms are big with large wardrobe space . 2 bathrooms. Kitchen is fully equipped with anything you could need. The swimming pool area is perfect for relaxing at and kept very clean . There were a couple of families there during our stay and the pool area is also perfect for them as it has a seperate kids pool. Joyce our representative met us there when we arrived on our first night and came on a walkabout with us to give us an idea of where we were located . She couldn't have been more helpful. The apartment is perfectly central.

"Great apartment fabulous location."

Great apartment 5* ideal location 5min from the strip 10-15min to the beach, has all the equipment required very clean, well looked after and serviced. The old town of Albufeira well worth a visit. There are some beautiful restaurants all within walking distance, will go again without hesitation.

"Very quiet and far away"

We have just came bk from spending a week in this penthouse. When we arrived we had to wait for 3 hrs to get in. The penthouse was lovely just like going from home to home. Only fault was the beds … More

We have considered these comments and feel it is important to respond as there are a number of factual inaccuracies.
We are pleased,however,that the guest liked our apartment.

Access to the apartment is 3pm with departures at 11am as stated on the holiday advertisement & on the booking form. Where possible access is earlier if there are no departing guests.
This guest was made aware of departing guests on his arrival day many weeks before and he had no problem. On arrival in the morning he was met by our representative who stored his luggage and with other cleaners got the apartment ready for 1pm, 2 hours before the stated access time.

To say that there are no shops or snack bars nearby is untrue. Roberto's restaurant/carry out is a very visible building located beside the main entrance to the complex with the Corcovada Club restaurant across the road. Both these restaurants have kiddies play areas & also sell ice cream & soft drinks.
There is also a new Indian restaurant opened across from the globe roundabout. Immediately across from the main entrance, there are 2 other restaurants together with a coffee shop , hairdressers, ladies clothes shop & mini supermarket.
There are many other restaurants shops and bars within a 5 minute walk close to the Strip where there is lots of family entertainment.

Following the departure of all guests we request feedback on their stay, this guest however, chose not to respond to us.

The comment about low beds is very much personal to taste, they however,are not falling apart. The beds are modern and are of very good quality.
Corcovada has been voted number 1 on TripAdvisor over the past 2 years so the majority of people seem to consider this complex and area to be excellent.

"Relaxing break, for thoses wanting major down-time!"

A delayed review. Myself and my mother stayed here in the penthouse apartment for the last week in June. Deliberately then, so as to avoid too many schools being broken up as we weren't wishing to be over-run by children. In the complex our building had a smaller pool and we could view a much larger one across the way which I suspect would be more suited to families, it was certainly busier.
The contacts for the apartment - Joyce and her husband, met us when we arrived and gave us a tour. They were helpful with local information and found us a very handy local map. Joyce also went above call of duty when we left a bag in the cab containing my mum's medication and she had it delivered to us!!

The apartment was spotless and very spacious. Lovely and cool. Perfect for two adults who like their own personal space! The terrace was huge and we ate out there all the time. You get sun in the morning but is gone by lunchtime which meant it was a cool retreat when it was too hot by the pool. There was a lift which was perfect for my mum who can't walk very far. There were a lot of hills which meant we had to a take a cab everywhere, even for a short distance, but they were reasonably priced.

We were a bit unlucky on our choices of restaurants so I don't think we could recommend anywhere to eat unfortunately. Old town Albufeira is best to go for lots of choice. If a little on the tacky side. We went to Villa Mouria, which was a good 25 minute cab away but a more pleasant place to eat and stroll by the Marina.

The two pools were well-maintained and there was always a lounger to be found.

I would definitely recommend this apartment. Our stay was lovely and quiet, extremely relaxing. If you wanted a nightlife it wasn't far away, - just wasn't our scene!

"Comfortable Apartment"

Clean and spacious apartment. Main large balcony overlooks the pool but also a busy main road. Albufeira strip is a short walk which was handy and easy access to the old town.
