“Absolutely Loved It!” Returned from Windmill Hill last Thursday & we ABSOLUTELY loved it! Thank you! The weather was amazing - we had a May heatwave for the exact week that we were there so the air conditioning was a bonus!
Our 3 1/2 year old little boy loved the place, the lawn area & of course the pool! The airport transfers were perfect as was the welcome pack - thanks again.
The spacious lounge & the bedroom upstairs makes this apartment feel like a house as do the 3 outdoor balconies/terraces.
The hill is nothing at a leisurely pace & we did it regularly in 38 degree sunshine!
We will be back - of that I have no doubt....

Holiday Apartment on Windmill Hill, Albufeira with Sea View and Free WiFi
N07, Windmill Hill, Albufeira
My partner and I visited this apartment between 14 and 21 September, having booked in June. It's a popular place, justifiably so, if you want peak times you'll need to get in early.
All our questions prior to arrival had been answered swiftly and efficiently by the owners, Cath and Chris, so we felt fully prepared before we departed.
We had been to Windmill Hill before but not this apartment. We found this one bedroom apartment (but capable of sleeping 4 more on sofa beds) over 2 floors ideally suited to our needs, and particularly well equipped. There was never an occasion when we looked for something and it wasn't there (particularly in the kitchen).
Spotless on arrival, the property is managed by Cerro Novo whose office is a short stroll away. They are on call 24/7 and on the rare occasion we needed them, found them friendly and helpful.
The apartment has 2 sun terraces which enables you to continue sunning yourself after coming back from the pool/beach, and we certainly made full use of.
Because it is one bedroom and spread over 2 floors, the property is particularly spacious, with an impressive dressing area, ample storage space and plenty of hangers in the bedroom.
The bathroom is also well equipped with his/hers sinks, bath/shower, WC and bidet.
There is a TV and DVD (stocked with ample films) for those who have no idea what a holiday is!!
The complex itself is also first class. Pristine whitewashed walls and green lawns complementing well stocked flower beds, give a luxurious feel. Sitting by the magnificent pool and bar(with no mad scramble for sunbeds at this time of year),looking out over the Old Town, you know you are in a classy establishment.
The Old Town is 10/15 mins walk away and was bustling even this late in the year. The walk back is a little longer as there are some steep hills to climb, the price you pay for the views from the pool.
For those who like the quieter life away from the hustle and bustle, we like the Arte bar in Cerro Centro Commerciale, a 5 minute stroll downhill. There is always entertainment, prices are cheap and staff friendly. The supermarket next door is well stocked and reasonably priced.
Over all, we had the perfect week away. The weather was superb, mid to late 20's during the day, although it did get cool enough for a jumper in the breeze a couple of times at night.
Thank you Cath and Chris, we had a fantastic holiday and hope to return soon.

As the title says this holiday let has all the home comforts and conveniences one could ask for .
We enjoyed having our breakfast / lunches on the roof terrace ,as Windmill Hill has fantastic views down to fishermans beach and the marina .
The complex is only a 15 minute walk down to the old town square and a similar distance to the restaurants and activities based at the marina
It is was perfect location for us as a family of six Our kids being young adults .I would caution those with mobility issues or pushing prams.The incline from the square back to the apartment is challenging. I am a keen runner and my running app recorded a 70m climb over the 1km from the town to the apartment .
The pool area is lovely , well kept and only yards from the front door..You don't need to scramble for a sunbed as the flat has its own on the roof .
If offering suggestions I would have liked a garden dining table on the roof terrace for barbeques ,the current table is a little small
.All the arrangements were hassle free regarding, payment, transport to and from the airport and collection of keys .
I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and dealing with the owners .We would definitely return to Windmill HIll. …
I 11 Windmill Hill Albufeira
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 lovely...so 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.... …
Windmill Hill 2 bed with air con/ free wi-fi
I stayed here with my family of 5 and can honestly say none of us were disappointed. Apartment had everything, more than I expected. It was spotless, very big with plenty of space for the kids to roam about. Then there was the garden off from the living room, brilliant. The complex was lovely and quiet considering it was August. A pleasant short walk and you are at both the old town and marina with a mini mart less than 5mins walk. The agent Allan Edwards couldn't have done anymore for us both before and after our holiday, a gentleman. Thanks for giving us a perfect holiday. The only bad point was we only stayed for a week. …

We absolutely love this condo!
This was our second stay at Windmill Hill but the first time in this unit. It was well equipped, clean and in the location couldn't be better. The complex is walking distance to many restaurants and attractions and if you don't plan to travel around the Algarve, a car isn't really necessary. We had great weather and enjoyed most mornings going for a long walk around the town, then returning to the apt to have couvert and drinks on the spacious terrace that has a partial ocean view and lots of sun. The condo is close to an Intermarche, a great little grocery, as well as some restaurants that are just a bit away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown area. Don't miss Senor Iguana's for a fantastic view and very economical snacks, as well as Rossio's which is on the same corner. The staff at both places are so helpful and friendly. We will definitely request this condo again from Algarve Holiday Villas, the staff of which are also most helpful :) …
