About Jose Ferrao

After many years working in a real estate, one day I received a phone call from a client that wanted to sell his propriety. In the first moment a step my foot inside this flat I fall in love with the stunning views.

I had seen nothing like that...

It had to be mine.

Now I'm living in London and I'm giving you this opportunity...

To live the time of your life!!!

Jose Ferrao purchased this apartment in 1983

The apartment is amazing! The view is beautiful and within close proximity of the beach. The location is also great, old town is perfect for a more relaxed vibe holiday as to the new town which is just 10minutes away. Recommended

Nice apartment with great view! We had a lovely holiday here.

  • 4 of 5

"The apartment is located very close to Peneco beach, and also very close to some restaurants and Albufeira's main plaza. The fact that it is on the 3rd floor makes its view wonderful, with nothing in front or on the sides to disturb it.

The kitchen was well equipped, the apartment is well ventilated and cleaned, and no problems about security in the building or in the area.

The main bedrroom has a small balcony where the couple can sit and enjoy a coffee in the morning or a wine in the evening.

Mr. Ferrão helped us to get transported from the airport to the city - as it takes around 35 minutes to go from Faro to the area - and was always kind enough to ask how were things. It was a good surprise to arrive at the apartment and find a bottle of wine and of water waiting for us as a gift from Mr. Ferrão.

Nearby the apartment is one supermarket (Intermarché) and some mini markets where is possible to buy the basics paying more less the same price.

Parking lots are available in front, but not easy to get A free spot.

The negative sides are:

- there are birds on the rooftops of the buildings nearby and they spend the whole night screaming a lot, which can be an issue to sleep;

- the windows are quite low and without any net, if you have small kids;

- the kids bedroom doesn't have its own door and faces the living room, so after putting the kids to sleep is tricky to watch tv or be talkative in the living room;

- to go from the main bedroom to the apartment you need to go through the kids bedroom, which can be tricky if you want your kids to sleep;

- the side street is a way for tourists who are staying at hotels up above to go to the city, to the beach and some go back home very late and very drunk, screaming, singing, breaking bottles on the floor of the street, which caused some disturbance. Nothing related with the apartment itself, but with the fact that Albufeira is a not expensive spot for British, French, Dutch and Germans to go on holidays."

A lovely if slightly querky apartment in a quiet part of town.

  • 4 of 5

The transport arrangements by Jose were excellent and the apartment really does have those great views. Jose's hospitality (though we never met) could not be faulted. Thankfully the air conditioning works well as the first of or two weeks was really hot. There are some lovely restaurants nearby and the town is only a 8 minute walk away to give even more choice. We were a little unlucky as the apartment next door was being renovated while we were there, but they only worked during the day and were clean, tidy and friendly so can't complain. The WiFi worked well and had a reasonably fast connection.

Lovely location and wonderful views

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the apartment but balcony sliding doors wouldn't lock once opened which wasn't good. We weren't warned about the three flights of steps up to apartment as should be advised as not suitable for people with mobility problems. Also not really suitable for 4 adults as no wardrobe in second bedroom.

Albufeira Beach

Albufeira in the central Algarve region of Portugal, attracts thousands of visitors every year and it's easy to understand why! There is Albufeira old town with it's pretty cobbled streets lined with restaurants, bars, cafes and shops and a lively nightlife, Albufeira marina with it's sugar candy coloured apartments and last but not least the lovely, sandy beaches. Albufeira is perfect for families, couples and singles of all ages and is central for all the tourist attractions, with the added bonus of a short transfer from Faro airport!

The list of things to do in the Algarve is endless. For a great day out take a boat trip along the coast, enjoy dolphin watching, go on jeep safari, quat bike tours, kayak tour, skydive, karting or learn to surf. Visit one of the theme parks, Zoomarine, Aquashow, family Golf Parks or enjoy some top pampering at a luxurious spa.

Take a trip on a traditional fishing boat from Albufeira Marina. along the coastline of the Algarve.

The cruise will take you west along the high rocky cliffs of this spectacular coast, with views of lovely sandy coves, some of which can only be reached from the sea. The skillful fishermen will take the boat inside the some of the caves, providing a safe and fun adventure for 'children' of all ages.

Zoomarine is only about 10 kilometers from our apartment in the direction of Guia.

Shows include the wonderful Dolphin displays; among others there are amusing shows featuring sea lions, seal's and parrots, a walk-through Aquarium with petting pool and bird-of-prey displays.

With restaurants, cafes, swimming pool and so much more, Zoomarine is an excellent family day-out. To save on the entrance cost shop at local tour shops for family deals including pick up.

Horse riding is an activity enjoyed all over the Algarve, since it is considered both educational and therapeutic. In Albufeira you will find several riding centers, suitable for every ages and skill. Here, you can ride and enjoy beautiful sights and landscapes.

Salgados is already one of the symbols of the Portuguese golf. In fact, the proximity of the sea and the variety of lakes make this a very interesting test of golfing skills, different to other courses in the Algarve.

The eighteen holes are well balanced, as each half of the course has two Par 5 holes of around 500 meters and three Par 3 holes of more than 170 meters. Par for the course is 72.
