This sunny, contemporary apartment is located in the center of the exciting, historic town of Albufeira, yet it is quiet to give you the most enjoyable holiday. The location is perfect - only about a 5-minute walk from beaches and steps away from many great restaurants, art galleries, grocery stores and fun shops! During the clear, sunny days, you can enjoy a walk through the scenic cobbled stone streets, relax at the beach or try out one of the many water sports and boat trips to the local caves. At night, you can enjoy the exciting night-life, live-entertainment shows with a variety of artists, live music, puppet shows, and much more.

Albufeira also offers many daily tours to Lisbon, the Algarve coast and Seville, Spain.

Both children and adults alike can enjoy the many surrounding area activities, such as swimming with the dolphins at Zoo Marine or visit the many water parks, such as Krazy World (petting zoo) and Slide and Splash where you can go for another day of fun. If playing golf is your passion, there are excellent golf courses, including the famous Sheraton Pine Cliffs Golf Course and Balaia Golf, within a short drive!

This is a very spacious apartment with room for four and is accessible from parking garage, front and back door. It includes fully equipped kitchen, all linens, air conditioning/heating and washing machine. It includes free broadband Internet access, cable TV with CNN, BBC and more international and Portuguese channels! Please note that TV in the picture is no longer there and it's been replaced with a flat screen TV. There is no need to rent a car, but if you need to rent one, there is a rental car agency in the building next door. Parking garage included! There is no balcony, but there is a large balcony door with rail in the living room, providing a lot of sunlight on sunny afternoons. The apartment is located bout a 30-minute drive from Faro International Airport and about a 2-hour drive from Lisbon International Airport. Pick up from Faro Airport can be arranged at a reasonable rate.

Highly recommended for all ages, romantic and relaxing getaways, family vacations, and beach fun!

About Margarida and Peter

Hi, I am originally from Portugal and live in the United States along with my American husband and two lovely daughters. Although I left the country over thirty years ago, I love going back to Portugal and so does my family.

Margarida and Peter purchased this Condo in 2002

Why Margarida and Peter chose Municipality of Albufeira

We fell in love with Albufeira the first time we visited and when we went back the second time, my husband convinced me to have our second home there. We wanted something in the city within walking distance to the beach, restaurants and city life, but in a quiet area. This is why we chose our Albufeira Apartment! The location is ideal for a romantic stay or family vacation!

What makes this Condo unique

Sunny, cozy, easy to maintain, and spacious for the whole family. Convenient location - minutes away from restaurants, beaches, entertainment, daily tours, and water sports!

We were relieved when we got there to find a well appointed home from home! We hired a car and put it into the locked garage overnight. The air conditioning is new so that was great, brand new fridge freezer and two coffee makers, one espresso and the other filter, try the Delta coffee we found that to our taste. Two single beds and one huge double! Lovely bathroom with hot water supplied by the gas water heater in the kitchen. Plenty of cooking utensils and pots. Very secure building with entry systems front and rear and a very good twin lift system. We went down to the patisserie for a breakfast if you don't want to cook English, cappuccino was only €1and the pastries looked great! As Gluten free couple we found plenty of products we could eat locally and restaurants were very helpfull. Lidl and Aldi supermarkets were in walking distance and the Continente and Pingo Doce were just off the "wristwatch roundabouts" both of which did the gluten free range. Each supermarket seams to stock its own choice of GF products. We wanted a central location and got it. Lovely evening walks onto the beach and escalators to the cliff tops or walk through the "hole" and have a cocktail by the sea or even on the beach. Our local favourite beach was Gales beach just outside Albufeira past the multi coloured Marina. This apartment is sited in the centre of the Algarve, hire a car and drive ,as we did, from the Spanish boarder to Lagos in the west. We took a trip to Lisbon and the train is very cheap. Best holiday in the best apartment, we will not be using hotels again!

                                                                  The condo is true to the pictures posted. It had everything we needed to be comfortable for 3 months. The location is great, close to the buses, tour companies, car rental and is walking distance to the Old Albufeira square as well as the beach. There are multiple restaurants close by, a bakery, a butcher, a pharmacy and a smaller supermarket.

                                                                  The area was extremely safe. The store owners and staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

                                                                  The owner and the property manager were easy to contact if we needed them. The rental, arrival and departure was smooth and hassle free.

                                                                  We will be coming back to both Albufeira and this condo in the future.
