Fabulous Apartment - Albufeira Center Within Short Walk to Beach and Restaurants

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Kitchen, Balcony, garage, lots of storage

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. If you are renting a car, we may want to explore the historic neighboring towns of Faro, Tavira, Lagos, Olhão, Silves and Sagres to name a few. 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 1-bedroom apartment with a spacious balcony, where you can enjoy the sunny afternoons and evenings. It includes fully equipped kitchen, all linens, air conditioning/heating and wash/dryer machine. It includes free broadband Internet access, cable TV with CNN, BBC and more international and Portuguese channels! There is no need to rent a car, but if you need to rent one, there is a rental car agency in the building nearby. Parking garage included! 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!

FREE WiFi!!!

No smoking please!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are packing up to leave this beautiful town tomorrow morning. We had a fantastic stay at your condo and loved the city here! Everything was great with the condo and Tina was a big help to get us set up.

Thanks again for renting the apartment to us!

Fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

The condo location is fabulous, in the heart of the old town of Albufeira. The condo is in excellent condition. It's a fair size and stocked with all the amenities for a great stay. Grocery, Wine and liquor stores, no more than 5 minute walk. Plenty of caffe and restaurants very close by. I most certainly recommend this condo to anyone wishing for a pleasant vacation in Albufeira.

Great holiday apartment!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was in a wonderful location. We were five minutes from everything, it seemed. We did not have a car, but were able to walk to everything within 5-10 minutes, including the beach, which was the highlight of Albufeira for us. We also had no steps between us and the beach, which is surprisingly rare in Albufeira! The apartment was bright and sunny, very comfortable and very private. We found that many of the restaurants were so reasonable, especially with their lunch specials, that it was hardly worth it to eat in. People were warm and friendly, and we were very grateful for Tina, who met us at the train station and showed us through the apartment, and Judite, who was wonderful to us throughout the process of booking the apartment - so glad we got to meet you and your sister, Judite! We were in this apartment for a month and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would definitely recommend it!

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful month at Judite's place. Plenty of room, air conditioning and good access to the beach. We were in the Old Town area which made it easy to get around. Check in was easy as Tina met us at the airport and explained everything to us.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is perfectly located for touring the old town and beaching by foot. It is equipped with everything we needed. Although we had a car, it was not needed unless we wanted to travel around the Algarve. Everything is close enough to walk to. I have read this in a previous review but I feel it's worth mentioning again.....your GPS will not get you right to the door of this unit. It will probably take you the wrong way down a one way street as ours did. A very exciting introduction to driving in Portugal! When you get close contact Tina. She is fantastic and will guide you there.

All in all this was a perfect fit for us and made our 2 weeks in Albufeira the perfect vacation.

Great condo in old town.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a month and really enjoyed our stay. The condo was close to all the action and beaches in old town, but was also quiet at night. It was well equipped with everything that anyone would need for a short stay or a long stay. Tina was great and picked us up at the airport in Faro and took us directly to the condo when we arrived. The internet was super fast and better than anything in the US. All in all we had a wonderful stay.
