Location description from owner

The Algarve region

Internationally recognized as 1of the best locations for the family with long golden sandy beaches washed by the Atlantic Ocean. Famous for the local's hospitality together with traditions of its fishing industry & country rustic life. Excellent value for food, particularly seafood and traditional Portuguese dishes eg Cataplana, Seafood Rice etc, and local wine.

WEATHER: Traditionally over 3,000 hours of sun each year which equals that of the Costa Brava, California and the French Riviera. In winter it is one of the sunniest spots in Europe but you have to beware of the sea breezes which are very deceptive (masking fierce sun), and skin protection is very important, especially in the summer, when temps can reach 90+ degrees F.

GENERAL INFORMATION:

BANKS: Hrs: 8.30am/3.0pm Mon/Fri, Weekends: Closed all day. Cash can be obtained from the ATM machines (MultiBanco).

CURRENCY: The Euro. Travellers' cheques are a safe way to carry money. If lost or stolen (can be replaced). The exchange rate for traveller's cheques are more favourable than they are for cash. Eurocheques, with card are widely accepted in hotels & good restaurants. Cash dispensers are generally available. Major credit cards are accepted by larger hotels, restaurants & shops, & most petrol stations.

DRIVING: EU licences/international driving licences are valid. Have your documents with you. Drive on the right and seat belts must be worn (very strict). Alcohol limit: 0.5 gm/l, which is lower than in UK.

Vilamoura

AL-SAKIA VILLAGE was constructed on a green field site between Vilamoura, Almancil and Quarteira and was completed in 2004/5.

QUARTEIRA is amongst Algarve's top resorts with safe bathing & long, sandy beaches running uninterrupted to Faro. The long promenade (Algarve's longest) is wonderfully maintained and is bordered by palms and , beautiful flowering hibiscus & white & pink of the oleander. Numerous Bars and Restaurants is a feature of the promenade many serving freshly-caught fish direct from the local market (one of the best in the Algarve) at extremely reasonable prices. It boasts a 13th-century parish church, and the Gypsy market on Wednesdays is a major attraction, as is the Joker Bar, which has featured as the no 1 English Bar, for some 20 years. A tourist land train that runs along the front to Vilamoura which is a big favourite with the children.

VILAMOURA is 1of the largest single tourist complexes in Europe and covers some 2,000 hectares. It has been developed since the 60's and most forms of sport/entertainment can be found there. It is fronted by a long sandy beach and features a range of quality Hotels and a superb Marina (Puerto Banus style). Amongst the many attractions/facilities there are 5 quality Golf Courses, a large Marina, a Lawn Bowling Club, a Tennis Centre, a Sports Club, a Shooting Club, Night Clubs, an International Casino, a Cinema, a private Airstrip & an excellent Riding School. There is a Roman Site & Museum giving a glimpse of the past and many different activities e.g.ballooning, bird watching, day boat trips, coach trips, or excursions in a Safari Jeep to explore the local countryside.

“Exceptional Apartment A+++”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2016

I stayed at this beautiful, spacious apartment with my husband and family and it definitely excelled our expectations. The apartment is extremely clean and well maintained, and equipped with everything you need for a perfect holiday. Although the apartment doesn't have air conditioning, we didn't find this a problem, even in the high temperatures that we experienced this summer at 30+ degrees as, although the balconies receive the sun, the temperatures within the apartment stayed cool and we used the cooling fans at night when necessary. A very relaxing apartment indeed. We hired a car from the airport under the advice of Tony, the property owner, and it only took approximately 20 minutes to the apartment. Tony was always extremely helpful and responded promptly to all my emails, when I had questions. Maria, Tony's Property Manager, lives on the complex and was also very helpful and near to hand, whenever we needed assistance. Nothing was ever too much to ask. Tiramisu, the restaurant by the pool, was a lovely way to relax at both during the day and evening. This offers breakfast, lunch and evening meals or even just a drink. This was great and the staff were always friendly, helpful and gave us a wonderful service throughout our stay. We made full use of the huge pool, which was a perfect way to cool down when the temperatures became just too unbearable. The grounds are beautiful and extremely well maintained. There are plenty of restaurants nearby to walk to, that offered traditional portugise dishes that definitely are not a rip-off and the stroll back to the complex was a pleasant way to complete the evening, before having a night-cap at the Tiramisu. Alaska is a perfect location and just a short car journey to the near-by resorts of Vilamoura, Quarteira and Vale do Lobo. Thank you Tony, once again.

“Great Property & Location”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2013

The previous reviews have covered everything and I cannot add more except to say I agree with them all !! Well presented property in a peaceful "central" Algarve location with plenty to see and do locally including several excellent and well priced restaurants !! The property manager is Maria and she is always available to give help and advice - well done !!

“A great location with excellent facilities”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2013

We are just back from our fourth visit to this apartment. It was good to start with, and it just keeps getting better. Inside the apartment it feels like being at home. There is no skimping, with comfortable furniture and high quality tv/DVD etc. You can get many UK tv channels. Outside, the two balconies get sun all day. The surrounding development is well kept. The Tiramisu is a great restaurant and is beside the pool and the gym. Nearby you can walk to several restaurants and a well stocked Aldi supermarket. This is better than UK Aldi, with fresh baked bread and good value stock. A larger Pingo Doce is not far away. If you drive, Quarteira is a few minutes away. There are many good restaurants there, and a good beach. You can walk from there to Vilamoura where the marina is stunning. The thing is, you can walk back and get good value food in Quarteira without paying Vilamoura prices! It is a very relaxing place to stay. Maria is around to provide local help if you do get stuck over anything. We loved it and we hope to be back again soon. Jim & Sue

“Great Apartment in a Central Location”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2011

This apartment has everything you need and some things you don't! The apartment is very clean, well maintained and secure. We stayed for just over a week and the location is great for exploring the Algarve. Close to a new supermarket and some very good restaurants in walking distance this is a great place to stay. The balconies get the sun all day, so if you don't want to go out you can still get the sunshine. You will have everything you need from sewing kits to sun hats and there are plenty of things to amuse kids if you take them. The pool in the complex is huge and is clean and well maintained and Tiramusi restaurant has great food and service. Will be booking this apartment again without doubt.

“Great apartment and location”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2011

Lovely apartment in complex, perfectly clean, lots of towels, great facilities, SKY TV, video and dvd to keep the kids happy after the beach/pool. Heard nothing from neighbouring apartments. Fantastic pool, with restaurant which has super friendly staff. Cheap but really good quality food - the best in the immediate area. 10 minute walk to supermarket. Less than 10 euro in taxi to Villamoura (which is lively with loads of shops/restaurants), 10 euro to Vale de lobo (but 20 back !) which is posher and has stunning beach and restaurants. Really recommend this apartment. Only perceived downside for some maybe location as it is detached, but for us we liked that as you can leave the hustle and bustle behind for peace and tranquility. Great comms by Tony who owns the property really good service thank you.
