This really is a special apartment. It is exceptionally large (1200 sq. ft.), all on one level and ideal for children. It occupies the premier position in this small, up-market, family orientated development with fantastic views over Albufeira old town. It was originally decorated, with no expense spared, by one of the premier interior designers in the Algarve and has now been refurbished and redecorated throughout, including a brand new modern kitchen with a granite worktop. The modern feel, including the stunning artwork, is complemented by the spectacular designer tiles throughout.The most important amenity is the ful air-conditioning/heating and also has a log burning stove. Amenities include TV, DVD, WI-Fi in the apartment and public areas in the complex. There is a safe in the master bedroom and beach towels are provided. The new kitchen includes all modern appliances. Maid service is three times a week and Jan, the manager is always on hand to solve any problem.Situated at the highest point in Albufeira, above the Cerro Grande, the views of the town and the sea, particularly as the evening lights come on, are breathtaking.There is a staffed reception, large communal swimming pool and lawns, and a poolside bar/restaurant/takeaway (open during the summer months). There are also two tennis courts and a five-a-side football pitch.Supermarket is five minutes, main beach ten minutes and the old town with its famous square, cobbled alleys, stalls, shops, bars and restaurants are ten minutes.

“Amazing apartment with views over the sea and Albufeira”

Reviewed 5 Jun 2019

Stayed for 5 days with my husband and two children and we loved this apartment. Having stayed on Windmill Hill before this apartment was far superior to the previous one we stayed in. Huge, light and airy living room with the best views, and breakfast on the balcony was perfect. The bedrooms were really big and the apartment had all the equipment plus more that we needed for our stay. The owner was very helpful and booking/communication easy. We would definitely stay here again.

Just returned from another two weeks at this amazing apartment. A large roomy apartment, great size bedrooms two bathrooms (bonus) his and hers. The views from the terrace are breathtaking...fantastic to watch the sun come up in the morning and evening views of the old town at night. The pool area is clean..plenty of sun beds...the cafe/restaurant/shop is so handy. The supermarket is 10-15 mins walk down...a little longer coming back...there are some great short cuts 10-15 minutes walk to old town with some great bars and restaurants. This holiday was so relaxing and it was our second visit and we’ve already booked for next year Couldn’t think of anywhere we,d rather go....rosemary and billy the owners are a dream to deal with and answer all our questions promptly. Transfers to and from the airport to were great lovely drivers. We’re so glad we found this great apartment and can’t wait to return next year....

“Lovely spacious apartment.”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2018

Rosemary was really helpful from booking the stay to checking we were having a great stay. The apartment is very large and has everything you need from washing machines to spare batteries for the air con. The pool is a nice size and although busy on some days we had no problem getting beds. Albufeira town is very lively but has something for everyone and the eating out is very good. The apartment is high above the town and the views from the front window are amazing,especially at night.But the walk from the town is very steep with lots of steps,so most people use a taxi to avoid the climb back. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return some time in the future.

“Superb apartment”

Reviewed 28 May 2017

The apartment is so spacious with fantastic views over the old town and sea. We spent quite a lot of time sitting on the balcony with a glass or 3 of wine relaxing. The only minor negative comment would be the uphill trek from town, but we are in our late 60's and managed it every evening. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone.

“Fantastic Apartment with amazing views”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2016

Brilliant spacious apartment. Everything we needed for a great Holiday. Best views i have ever seen. Complex lovely. Very hilly but plenty of taxis. Owners responded to any queries immediately and the Manager, Jan, was on hand if necessary. Will definitely be back .
