Location description from owner

The Algarve region

The Algarve is the Southern most area of Portugal and is famous for its excellent climate, great beaches and friendly people. It has more hours of sun than almost anywhere else in Europe often with a gentle sea breeze to keep temperatures comfortable. The beaches are glorious, from craggy and intimate little coves to stretches of golden sand that go on for miles.

Sao Rafael

Albufeira is the main tourist resort in the Algarve. As well as a marina and delightful, recently restored old town it has many shops, restaurants and things to do including some, but not too rowdy, night life.

“Great location, only 5min walk to the beautiful beach of Sao Rafael”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2015

We stayed at Sao Rafael apartment in mid July. The apartment was perfect for our family of four. The location was perfect with only a 5 minute walk to Sao Rafael beach. Located at the end of the beach is a rental hut where you can hire paddle boards etc. We used the paddle bout a number of times. Also located on the beach is a restaurant. We had a great meal at the tapas located on the road to Gale beach, only 20mins walk. The pool in the estate was fantastic with a shallow and deep end reaching down to a depth of 2.7metres. By the pool they also provided sun beds and inside a pool table, toilets, coffee machine, vending machine and sitting area. The apartment was modern, and had a spacious balcony that had a slight view of the sea. You will need beach towels. Geoff and Lynne provided excellent information about the area and the directions from Faro airport to the apartment and information about the apartment was spot on. We recommend going to Slide and Splash Water Park. Our family enjoyed the whole day there. Queues can be long though so arrive early. We got a lot of use out of our hire car but an option may be to split the hire (e.g hire in 2nd week) if you intend exploring beyond the local area. Always try and bring sun umbrellas with you in the car because you never know when they will come in handy. Thankfully the apartment provided a couple of them. They also provided a couple of boogie boards, buckets and spades and lilos which we used often. We defiantly would consider staying again next year. Murray and family

“Fantastic stay !”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2013

Hello Lynne and Geoff, This is our first trip by driving from Gibraltar to Portugal. Due to the Gibraltar political issue w Spain, we left earlier and arrive on Sunday midnight time. Geoff very kindly allow us to check into apartment without extra charge. Really thank you and appreciate your kindness. The apartment is very spacious with beautiful kitchen. Love the balcony and we had a good time doing the barbecue too . Sao Rafael Beach is just 5 mins walk from the apartment. The 2 double bed rooms all have their own balcony too. Most days are the apartment are very airy but you can find a fan in the room in case there is no air on one of nights. Also, remember to bring mosquito repellent when you are in Portugal for summer time. We were swamped by mosquitoes when went to the Sand Sculpture exhibition. Thank you for making our trip so wonderful and we will definitely be back again if we do go to Portugal again.

“Perfect location and a perfect blend of modern amenities in a traditional portugese coastal setting”

Reviewed 15 May 2013

A beautiful apartment situated in a great location with only short walks to a number of ideal portugese beaches and restaurants, surrounding area is quiet and connections to Albufueria and Faro and the main motorways are a short distance away. We enjoyed a truly memorable stay and will be back for sure!

“Great apartment in quiet friendly complex close to the beach”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2011

This apartment is perfectly located close to the beach and within a quiet complex with its own facilities and is perfect for a peaceful getaway. The complex is within a few minutes of Albufeira too so it can be a quiet holiday or a more lively one depending on what people are looking for. The apartment itself is excellent and both clean and tidy whenever we visit. We have been three times now and would have no hesitation in recommended it to anyone.
