We have many returning guests who like us appreciate a "home from home" approach and excellent management by our agent, Portugal Haven.
Jamie Boswell purchased this Apartment in 2008

Our holiday in Albufeira
Beautiful apartment, absolutely everything you need is supplied. Great views,a few steep hills, but you can get a taxi from old town for €5 or €6..we would definitely stay here again. Thanks 😎
Fantastic apartment, everything you need for self catering stay is there. Karen who we were in contact with for the booking was excellent, great service provided from start to finish. Very good location in the old town, many small bars and cafes very close by. We had read alot about the hills leading up to the apartments but my 75 year old mother managed it fine for the two weeks we were there, it was not as bad as we had expected. Could not fault apartment at all, felt safe, very spacious with outstanding views. Highly recommend.
Thank you Lorraine and so glad you all enjoyed it, and the hills weren't too bad for your mother.
GREAT APARTMENT WITH STUNNING VIEW
The BOAVISTA Apartment 3b is really excellent with outstanding views.
An excellent location away from the crowds and 10 minutes from the old town of Albufeira. A well stocked Intermarche Supermarket is nearby and the apartment management company ladies are most helpful in organising airport transfers advice and ordering taxis's for us.
We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks in the apartment and highly recommend it to future guests.
Lovely apartment with a view
Lovely apartment very spacious everything you need for a week away.
Steep hills up and down to the old town and marina but walkable in 5-10 mins.
Stayed at this wonderful apartment for 5 nights. It has everything you need and more. We were welcomed by the ownerss who showed us around the apartment and gave us the quickest routes to the harbour and old town area. It is in a quiet area of old town - approximately 10 minutes walk. There are a couple of bars nearby close enough for that last drink but far enough not to hear the noise. Perfect.
Ein wunderbarer Urlaub
Das Penthouse war schön eingerichtet, gut ausgestattet, geräumig und sehr sauber.
Eine grandiose Aussicht auf das Meer und die Altstadt gab es obendrauf. Sehr ruhig gelegen, trotzdem nur 10 min zum Strand,Hafen oder in die Stadt.Supermarkt 5 min. Eine willkommene Bewegung, bevor man dann den ganzen Tag faulenzt.
Ein großes Danke an unsere Vermieterin (Karen), die sich schon vor unserer Anreise perfekt und sehr herzlich um uns gekümmert hat.
Jede Anfrage wurde sofort beantwortet, alle Wünsche erfüllt.
Auch den Transport vom Flughafen und retour hat sie für uns gebucht.
So hatten wir einen zuvorkommenden, äußerst pünktlichen und sehr günstigen Fahrer.
Die Ansprechpartner vor Ort , Büro, in 5 min erreichbar,
stehen ebenfalls von 9 Uhr-18 Uhr zur Verfügung.
Danke auch an homeaway! Bei euch hat alles super geklappt.
Wir werden den nächsten Urlaub wieder bei euch buchen.
