Car hire is not necessary as two large supermarkets are within 5 to 10 minutes walk and a smaller supermarket is within a 2-minutes stroll.

The location of this apartment with it's terrific views ensure you won't be disappointed.

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 Algarve

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.

“Good location with stunning views of the Old Town”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2016

We stayed in the apartment for 2 weeks in July/Aug. We found the apartment to be well equipped, spacious and clean. The large L shaped balcony is definitely a great feature and the views of the Old Town and beach are absolutely stunning. The apartment is looking a little dated but this didn't detract from our stay and is accurately represented in the photos. The pool area is lovely and a great place to relax. Our children spent a lot of time playing with new friends in the pool. We did have issues getting a sunbed on occasions but our stay was during peak season. This was our first visit to Albufeira and we absolutely loved the Old Town. There are lots of shops, bars and restaurants to appeal to all tastes and budgets. The nearby beaches are lovely (but quite crowded at this time of year). There were open air concerts on the beach during the first week of our stay which we enjoyed. The apartment is ideally situated within a 10 min walk of the centre of the Old Town. There are also plenty of shops, bars, restaurants, banks and a supermarket within walking distance. We would particularly recommend the Havana bar directly across the road from the apartment. Philippa provided an excellent service throughout. She was friendly, informative, responded to communications promptly and made us feel reassured. Philippa arranged airport transfers for us which were also excellent. To summarise, well equipped apartment in an excellent location with stunning views. We would highly recommend the apartment and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Dear Joanne - so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the apartment and enjoyed the entertainment that the Old Town of Albufeira has to offer during the peak season. We certainly hope you will stay again and will look forward to welcoming you back. Regards Philippa

“Great Apartment, Fantastic Location”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2013

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”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2013

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”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2012

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.
