Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 5
What can we say! The people that we have rented this apartment have felt that it was like staying in their own home. It is a very light and airy place and there are residents on the condominium as well as holiday makers. There are 4 families that come back time and time again, in fact we have become good friends. This is in a quiet area at the back of all the clubs bars and restaurants. There is a good bus service and taxi ranks all within 10 minutes away. Beautiful beaches surround us. If you want a good family holiday that is not stressful you will love it here, there is always plenty to do and see as there are great places to visit such as Zoo Marina, Splash etc., adults love it as well as the kids. There is a double decker bus that does a tour guide service outside the Paraiso Hotel, people have told us it is overpriced and all you get is a tour of unfinished apartments around Salgados, we have been asked to mention this. There is the little tourist train that takes you to the old town Albufeira from the strip or visa versa, inexpensive and fun.

|Further details indoors|
Here we have a spacious 1 bedroom apartment plus extension bedroom consisting of bunk beds. The Lounge contains 2 x 3 seater brown leather settees and 1 single brown leather easy chair. The bedroom is spacious, light and airy, the double bed is very comfortable as it was bought for comfort not holiday let use. There is a small passageway and a compact separate kitchen with a servery bar which can also be used as a breakfast bar. The bathroom has both a bath and a shower. There are two balconies, one small one which is mainly used for drying washing and the lounge balcony which has a very nice view of the sea and villas surrounding the condominium.
We have a strict rule regarding bookings. This is a family apartment great for families and couples. We do not encourage parties of young people, "Larry on the Lash" and "Birds on the pull", the condo is family orientated and we like to keep it that way. I will not respond to enquiries from clients who do not give a Surname.
|Further details outdoors|
There is a large shared private swimming pool and a small one for children, surrounded by gardens. Parking is in the square of the condominium, but as the amenities are all within walking distance a car is not really needed.
We have a wonderful lady called Rosa who will book you in and check you out, she does not speak English but our next door neighbour does. Rosa will introduce herself to you on your arrival she takes care of the apartment for us. We feel that the bunk bed room is not suitable for children under the age of 8. Please feel free to ask any questions. This apartment will only accommodate up to five people and the rental is for up to 5, however there will be a small extra charge for a fifth person. If it is proven that there is more than the booked persons staying in the apartment I am afraid the whole party will be asked to leave without reimbursement, we are very strict on this rule.
The Algarve region
This area is the ideal location to start your holiday. There are various beautiful beaches that stretch along this coastline. One of our favourite ones is Santa Eulalia, a small cove like beach with beautiful views with a snack bar and a couple of very good restaurants. The beautiful cobbled streets of the old town of Albufeira is a short distance away roughly a 15 minute walk. There are plenty of tour operators offering daily excursions at very reasonable prices they also offer trips to the Algarve shopping centre and various theme parks throughout the Algarve. There is a little train that runs from "The Strip" to the old town and visa versa. There is a tour bus outside the Paraiso Hotel but to be perfectly honest I find it very pricey and a waste of money, not unless you want to see unfinished buildings in Salgados. We are literally 5 minutes from The Strip which is where the Albufeira night life is and you can actually see it from the balconies.
Forte Sao Joao
There are two parts of Albufeira, the old town and the"strip". The Old town has the charm of the old cobbled streets with lots of bars and restaurants, it recently had a facelift and gives the town a mediterranean dining al fresco feel about it. However the "Strip" is where the true night life is. With its sporty bars and Karaoke and lots of cosmopolitan restaurants there is something for every body. The area of Sao Joao has the best of all worlds, any of the above or the quaint secluded local bars and restaurants dotted round the area, you really cannot ask for more.

"Best relaxed break I have had in a long time."
Three of us decided to have a weeks break after we folded up our small business. A friend of ours had stayed here about 4 years ago and told us it was very much a home away from home, he was right. … More

"Lovely apartment and complex"
We have just returned from a weeks holiday with our two children aged 7 and 11. We literally booked this apartment a couple of weeks before as we were not supposed to be going on holiday this year. Af… More
