Albufeira bungalow description

My home is a 'home away from home' to many all over the world! The substantial space, ideal location and beautiful décor provides comfortable vacation living for individuals, couples or families.

This home is fully stocked to meet your every need- all furnishings, appliances, decorations, linens, kitchenware are new or updated and match all photos and comfortably await your arrival. You will not want to leave!

Includes separate, large master suite with walk-in closet and large bathroom, spare bedroom with 2 twin beds which are movable, large spare bathroom with washer/dryer, lofted ceilings throughout, gigantic kitchen/dining area, spacious living room with fireplace and new TV and a big upstairs loft/den with futon.

Outside, enjoy the fresh air and fruit trees in the yard or grill/dine out on the patio on a Portuguese style grill. The large community pool is only meters away also.

This house features the best of all worlds because it is in a quite residential area with great views (a view of the marina from the front yard/patio) but the local Cerro Grande Commercial Centre is only a few blocks away which features my property management team, restaurants, a full grocery, laundry and shops.

Located on the bluff of Cerro Grande, the view of the marina, the harbor, the beach and Historic Old Town of Albufeira are only steps away. It is also only a few minutes walk in any direction to reach any one of these destinations.

Enjoy the relaxed hilltop atmosphere of Cerro Grande or head down the hill into Historic Old Town and experience the local beaches, restaurants, shops and exciting night-life that includes live-entertainment and a variety of local artists and daily shows.

At the marina, find many excursion options as well as restaurants and shopping- all a short walk away! There are also many Day Tours available, which you can book through my property management group just around the corner- so convenient. They are also able to provide airport transfers from Faro for your arrival and departure. Some of the Tours include the Algarve Coast, Lisbon, Seville, and many other exciting places.

In addition, there are a variety of amusement parks where you can go for another day of fun. Finally, there are excellent Golf Courses and Tennis within a five to fifteen minute drive.

More than a bungalow, this is truly a home away from home. I hope you decide to stay!

                              Praia do Preneco

                              I listed much above in the general description but the main attraction is that is 'away' and out of the congestion but 'close' to all the amazing things Albufeira has to offer. The beach is around the corner, the marina is in view, the ocean and harbor are visible from the sidewalk out front, Old Towne is just down the hill for extensive shopping and dining but within a few blocks is a conveniently located laundry, grocery, small restaurant and bar, hair salon and a few other shops.

                              A list of recommended restaurants is in the house book, as well as many other 'must sees', with maps and brochures also. At the marina, there are deep sea fishing, scuba diving, dolphin siting, sea cave viewing, parasailing and many more activities available, as well as restaurants, play gym area for kids, go carting, and putt putt golfing.

                              Day tours out of town can be booked right around the corner at my property management office.

                              Then there is beautiful Old Towne right down the hill, with its genuine Portuguese feel with many shops and restaurants- non commercialized like New Towne!

                              Note, an elevator is available even to get quickly to the beach!

                               

                              Owner info

                              About the owner: I was a single woman who went to write a book in Portugal a few years ago and fell in love with Albufeira. So much so, I decided that I would do whatever it took to live there at least part of the year. Currently, I am working on making that dream come true. In the meantime, I am able to share my home with others- what a joy! This home is the result of hard work, dedication and one person's dream- it has great energy and you will enjoy your stay!

                              Why the Owner Chose Albufeira:
                              The people of Albufeira are so sociable and friendly. Plus, the location is ideal- I am so close to everything I love (beach, marina). The climate is warm, almost mediterranean, and the water is clear with a turquoise tint. I appreciate the quiet of the house location since I go there to write, but then town is right around the corner when I want to be around others. It is ideal and I love it there. I am an avid traveler so being close to Faro airport was a goal as well.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                              The full bathrooms are perfect for when my parents or friends join me for a visit. We also have a great time making meals together in the large kitchen and enjoy relaxing outside on the patio. Plus, sitting by the fire at night watching a movie or reading is such a nice experience. We walk to the marina or to town to catch a bite to eat or head to the beach or the pool for a swim.
