About Elsa Sousa
My name is Elsa and we are a couple with 2 kids. We live near Lisbon and we love the Algarve. When we need to relax, fantastic weather with sun and beaches ... we go to the Algarve.
Elsa Sousa purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Elsa Sousa chose Old Town
We love the Algarve because almost all year we have a long summer. The area and location of the apartment are fantastic. For people coming by plane, it is easily accessible with Faro airport less than an hour's drive away.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment itself is so well situated on Montramar building, on 3rd floor with lift. Has a great balcony where you can view the sea and rest in sun loungers or even eat outside the apartment with an amazing view. We can walk to the sea or old town in less than 2 minutes.

Great week in The Algarve
The apartment offered a fine view of the Old Town, refreshing cool mornings on the balcony for coffee, sunny afternoons with wine and an ever-changing array of sunsets over the hills for dinner. We walked 15 minutes to the nearest shopping center to get all we needed in order to cook (almost all) our own daily meals - at a great price. Anything we ran short of was less than half that distance away, in a small mercado at the foot of the escalator. If privacy, sun, and location appeal to you, this is a find. PS: we parked all week at the lot across from Galeria Municipal; there was always space at the end of our day trips.
Stunning views - nice apartment
Easy booking and great communication with Elsa. The apartment is in an excellent location right above the old town escalators. The balcony was just the best with stunning sea views. Property inside was traditional Portuguese styled, clean and everything you need . WiFi and air con was great. Please have the canopy fixed for the next time as there was no shade from the sun. Please also provide sun lounger cushions as couldn’t use them as they were just hard plastic loungers. Had to use the upright cushioned seat on the balcony.
Would definitely return to this lovely apartment.
Great location brilliant views lovely hosts 😍😍
Old Town Portugal
Lovely apartment and location
Would highly recommend.
Stunning views and a wee sun trap.
Owners are lovely and can’t do enough in making you welcome
Music until 4am and sunbeds broken
Apartment was well equipped and we thought the balcony was a good space for us but as the sunbeds were broken it spoiled our stay also did not get to sleep until 4am. I don’t understand how the government allows such load music until this time. It so ruins your holiday. Glad to get home to be able to sleep.
The apartment it is very well located, 3 minutes walking to the beach and the sunbeds are already replaced. Thank you for you feedback.
Lovely apartment in great location. Was great to be met by the owner, Elsa and her son. Everything you could possibly need is there for you, and a lovely welcome pack
It was a pleasure receive you and your wife. Until next time!

The Algarve is obviously noted for its beaches, golf courses and the good weather almost all year. There are many attractions to enjoy with all family. Has Fantastic water parks and Zoomarine park with the amazing dolphin show.
The apartment is 2 minutes stroll from the famous Fishermans Beach, the heart of Albufeira. Water activities are one of the main draws to Albufeira. The beaches in Albufeira were recently classified as "Accessible Beaches" meaning that beach-goers have easy access to the beach front. Many beaches have bars or restaurants on them ranging from informal open bars to sophisticated air-conditioned top quality restaurants.
Faro airport is a 30 minute drive away. There is also an open top bus which make circuits the town regularly. Taxis are plentiful and reasonable value. A car is not necessary as the beach and Old Town are near the apartment (2 minutes walking).
