Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights in June 2018. We had an excellent stay and couldn't recommend this apartment enough! It was very clean, spacious and tidy and had all the facilities we needed. Tony the owner and Jan the manager were also excellent accommodating us before & during our stay and we were even able to have early check in and late check out which was amazing. The apartment is excellently situated only a short walk into the Old Town and the Windmill Hill complex also has great facilities. The private roof/sun terrace is also an excellent addition and we will definitely be returning!

Charming place

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd visit to the apartment and once again it didn’t disappoint.

It is close enough to the old town to walk, the view from the upstairs patio is amazing. There is a supermarket s short walk away where you can buy everything you need.

The pool area did get very busy and I would imagine in school holidays it’s even worse.

A welcome pack is left for you,... these little touches are very much appreciated.

We will be returning without a doubt!

Apartment was immaculately clean and spacious and a beautiful roof top terrace with wonderful views. Just a shot 10mins walk to the old town, and beach. Location perfect and very peaceful. Highly recommend this property.

Lovely apartment. Everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 3 nights Sept 2017. Arrived early for bag drop and maids were just finishing up and were able to get in the apartment early. Food pack was helpful to get us through the first day. I assume that this is left in the apartment as standard as it was free. The apartment has everything you need and is very comfortable. Upstairs veranda has fantastic views of the old town and beach. Can't recommend this enough. Complex itself is quiet and very well maintained. Uphill location might not suit everyone, but is useful for burning the extra calories!

Nearest Airport
40 Kilometres
Nearest Beach
2 Kilometres
Car: not necessary


Windmill Hill is only a 10 minute walk to the nearest beach and within easy reach of many other magnificent beaches, including Sao Rafael and Gale.


Fly to Faro Airport which is accessible through a number of budget airlines from the UK. The apartment is situated to the west of Albufeira just above the old town. Taxis from the airport will cost approx 45 Euro. Car hire, though not essential, is readily available.


Windmill Hill is an 8 to 10 mins walk to the old town of Albufeira and a short distance to the new marina. A short taxi ride takes you to the vibrant strip area and the Algarve shopping complex. Albufeira is one of the Algarve's most popular resorts but retains its distinctive Portuguese character. The historic town is particularly pretty with its narrow cobbled streets lined with whitewashed houses, restaurants and shops. The central square is a good place to sit and watch the world go by.

Further Details:

The Algarve is famous for its excellent year round climate, sandy beaches and outstanding golf courses. In addition, there are aqua parks, Zoomarine and other play parks. There is a supermarket within a short walk of the complex. There is an abundance of restaurants serving both local and international cuisine.
