Location description from owner
The Algarve region
Beaches vary along the region's long coastline. For long beaches consider Falésia, Armação de Pêra, Quarteira or Monte Gordo. Praia da Rocha is a wide beach and popular with the younger crowd, but for watersports head to Meia Praia, Praia do Martinhal, Praia da Luz or Baleeira.Eating and drinking - there's something for every taste and budget, from picnics at the'end of the world' in Cape St Vincent and beachfront terraces in Alvor to sophisticated fish restaurants in Vilamoura marina and Michelin-starred dining.Escape - if you fancy getting away from the crowds, head to the eastern Algarve resort of Tavira or the deserted beaches around Ria Formosa Natural Park. In the countryside, Monchique is a perfect choice with mountain walks and a spa at the end of the day.Excursions - if you have a hire car or fancy taking a trip out for the day, explore the old towns of Faro, Tavira Castro Marim and Monchique. You might even consider a longer trip (maybe with an overnight stay) to the country's capital of Lisbon.Golf - the Algarve is renowned for its golf, with around 30 golf courses, some with plenty of water features, others with long greens among pine trees, plus coaching and putting greens,
Forte Sao Joao
The apartment complex has direct access to the beach by a private road..You can take a walk to the famous Fishermans' Beach in the heart of the old town of Albufeira and takes 15 minutes to walk.The apartment complex is only 5 minutes away from the night-life of Albufeira area called the strip,where there is entertainment for all ages and plenty of excellent restaurants bars and cafes.'There is a tourist train' that runs between the 'strip' and Albufeira 'old town' and the excellent local "Giro" minibus network. If you want to visit one of the water parks such as Aqualand or the Algarve's most popular theme park Zoomarine, there are several agencies in Albufeira offering very reasonable prices for transportation and tickets and with pick-up points near the main hotels it's both convenient and cheaper than hiring a car.

“1st Class Apartment”
This apartment has everything you need for a great relaxing holiday, with lovely sea and pool views. I would recommend this apartment to family and friends.
I booked this appartment after many hours of searching various sites,and I so made the right choice. From the first enquiry I sent John was most helpful and always great at corrospondance. The property is in a lovely quite area and one of the most secure properties that I have stayed in. We were met by Kevin,manager in resort with keys on arrival,lovely helpful guy. The appartment is exactly as advertised,spotless clean,all mod cons,excellant hairdryer!!!!! Very quite,peaceful surroundings. Only 4-5 mins to beach,and maybe 10 min walk on beach to oldtown. 15-20 mins walk to oldtown by road.Strip is less than 10 mins although it is pretty hectic.. chilli pepper bar next to property is very nice and reasonable prices. Calipto at the top of road is great for breakfast/lunch. Pingo Doce supermarket at worms roundabout is apr 20 mis walk and best for variety. Cockerek kitchen off strip is great food at v good prices but booking is essential. Uzjond restauran not far from strip is excellant value and good fresh food. In old town O Manjar is lovely for a v good steak. O paulos bar is nice and relaxed around the corner, I would highly reccomend anyone t stay in this property and hope to return soon
Super appartement van alle gemakken voorzien,heerlijk groot balkon met confortabel zitje en ligstoelen. Beddengoed en handdoeken in overvloed aanwezig. Mooi zicht op de zee en je hoort de zee,fantastisch. Wij zijn de hele maand februari geweest en het voelde als een tweede thuis. Korte afstand lopen( wel hellend) naar heerlijk strand, mooie rotswandelingen gemaakt. Vele mogelijkheden voor omgeving te verkennen, wij hadden huurauto maar met openbaar vervoer ook vele mogelijkheden. In deze periode super zacht en zonnig weer, zwembad en zee te koud (in februari) Het appartementencomplex is rustig met afgesloten toegangen, geeft een veilig gevoel. Wij hebben een fantastische vakantie gehad en gaan zeker terug.
“Fantastic family holiday great value for money”
The resort and accommodation suited all our needs; home from home. The apartment was well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. It was in an excellent location with a short walk to the beach, 5 minute walk to the strip and 20 minute walk to the old town. We would definitely recommend this apartment to our friends and family. Hope to return one day soon.
“Beautiful Apartment With Great Views”
The apartment is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean with a kitchen stocked with everthing that you would need The complex is very secure and close to the beach with only a 15 min walk along the beach to the old town and only a 10 min walk from the apartment to the strip. Have recomended your apartment to other family members Hope to return next year Clifford / Patricia
“Good value for money”
I really was impressed by service provided. We have been transfered from Faro airport and shown the area. The apartment met our criteria i.e. very clean, bright, comfy etc. Kitchen was fully equiped even toilet paper and wasking powder were provided. We really felt like at home. Thank you John.
We had a lovely one week stay - excellent location, beautiful apartment, and very good communication with the owner for booking. Nice quiet location, good place for couples wanting a nice relaxing break. We booked airport transport via the owner as well and this was worked really well and was good value for money.
“Superb Apartment Great stay”
Hi stayed in this apartment in August we had a brilliant time, the apartment was great all modern appliances and the view was something special. It was convenient for supermarkets, shops and entertainment. Would definately recommend it to anyone.
The appartment is a really great one. You can reach both - the old town and the Strip easily (within walking distance), the access to the beach is excellent and the view from the terrace is stunning - something that you want to take home with you! All in all, we really recommend staying this appartment!
“Clean spacious accomadtion”
A lovely property, that was clean and spacious. The pool area was quite and relaxing. The property is just as advertised. It was very easy to book and greeting on arrival and re-fund of deposit before departure was lovely.
