The Aparthotel is situated on the hillside overlooking the Old Town and Fisherman's Beach. The apartment's balcony and huge windows are south facing, with a beautiful view making it very light and airy. There is an absolutely spectacular sea view from the balcony and from the shared pool and terrace where you can see right across the Old Town! The balcony is part covered allowing both space to enjoy the sun as well as an area in the shade.
We have put a lot of effort into maintaining the apartment and adding those "little extras". So many of our guests comment about how homely it feels and how the apartment offers everything you need. We have taken time to put together information for our guests and are happy to advise on the best restaurants, places to go and things to do!
Just a few minutes walk away you'll find the Old Town square with its numerous bars and restaurants, and Fisherman's Beach. The Montechoro 'Strip' and many golf courses are a short cab ride away. The apartment is very family friendly as the balcony is on the ground floor not up high. Within the apartment you will find our 'welcome pack' giving you details of great places to eat and visit during your stay. We hope you enjoy your time here as much as we do, and want to come back time and time again.

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.
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 (or a 15-20 minute walk), and at the other end of the scale, many of the areas famous golf courses are also easily reachable by car, bus or cab.
In Guia (20 minutes drive - taxis and buses available) you will find a large and very popular shopping mall and in the next village is the "Festa", a huge sand sculpture which is renewed each year and built by the best sculptors from around the world - definitely worth a visit and quite amazing for all ages!!
There are also waterparks/themeparks in the area which are all detailed in our welcome pack - giving loads to do for all the family!
There's something for everyone, from varied watersports to quiet walks.
