About the property

The apartment was refurbished to provide a high standard of living. It includes 2 Bedrooms (1 with ensuite bathroom), Living Room, fully equipped Kitchen and Deck to offer a pleasant alfresco dining. The balconies both have uniterrupted views over the communal pool/garden and there are sun loungers available to use.

It may host up to 6 guests, and is designed to offer space, privacy and a safe environment for children.

The apartment is in a well maintained gated complex with large family pool and within easy walking distance to beautiful beaches.

Pedra Vaila is the ideal location for a peaceful and relaxed holiday. It is only 40 minutes from Faro airport. It suits families looking for a beach holiday without the hustle and bustle of busier, more comercialised resorts.

It is not essential to hire a car. There is a bus stop outside the apartments and the taxi rank is just a 5 minute walk, so unless you are planning to do lot's of sightseeing, a car is not strictly necessary. Albufeira, with it's more lively nightlife, is only a 15 minute taxi or bus ride away.

Guia, well known as the birthplace of the famous chicken Piri-Piri and the location of Sir Cliff Richard's vineyard, is just 20 minutes away by car. Also here is the Algarve shopping complex where you can find factory outlet shops and large supermarkets.

For families, various attractions such as Zoomarine and Aqualand are all approximately 15 to 20 minutes by car. Pine Cliffs golf course is very close, less than 10 minutes walking. Numerous golf courses can be found close to Albufeira and Vilamoura, golfers are spoilt for choice. Birdwatchers will find plenty of interest at the nearby Vilamoura lagoons, including flamingos. This is easily accessible by car or by walking.

Why Rui Noronha chose Albufeira

The peaceful setting of this apartment will make you want to return year after year.

With its natural pine forest stretching for miles along the coastline Falesia beach is the only beach in Portugal to be awarded the gold flag of Europe for its clean water and sand.

It is located in a quiet and peaceful setting yet minutes from Falésia village which has plenty of café’s, restaurants and bars; restaurants such as Chinese, Italian and numerous Portuguese fare, all within walking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Johnny said:

We stayed here one week during July 2013 and were very happy with the apartment, the location and the host! The apartment is big. modern and airy with close proximity to the beach (around 10 mins walk). The swimmingpool is just outside the apartment, making it all very easy to enjoy. There are a couple of restaurants and grocery stores nearby as well. Parking is easy and is just in front of the building complex.

Custódia and Rui are great hosts and always prepared to help with any queries you might have - our flight got delayed and they still stayed at the apartment until 2.30 AM when we arrived...

For us this was a great home away from home and we give our warmest recommendations.

Awesome Apartment / Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our first week in Portugal was to be a beach vacation in the Algarve area, followed by a week in Lisbon. This apartment certainly exceeded our expectations. We were four seniors but the apartment would be suitable for any ages and certainly a family. Seating for eight at the dining room table.

The huge patio with four loungers, a patio table and four chairs, plus a charcoal bbq was right beside the pool.

The apartment was exactly as described, lots of room and fully equipped for a crowd. The laundry washing machine was in the kitchen. Clothes were dried on a hanging rack located on the smaller back patio. The back patio also had a table and chairs.

The beach was a 10 minute walk and was simply awesome. Clean, safe and long. Be prepared for a steep hill climb when leaving the beach.

Halfway between the beach and the apartment was a commercial centre. It included a full grocery store, bars, restaurants, ice cream parlour and specialty shops. We enjoyed the Frango Real restaurant. One of us required a gluten-free diet and the staff were very accommodating with this request. If you headed past the RV park and off the property you could find other restaurants that we didn't try, but also another grocery store that was a little closer and a little cheaper.

Rui recommended SafetyTransfers2U as a means of getting from the airport on arrival. Excellent choice. We used them for all our taxi needs. The drivers are very friendly and helpful. They took us on one little 15 minute trip the old section of Albufeira which is a must visit and it is also right on an awesome beach.

We would and will recommend this apartment to family and friends.

Urlaub mit super Komfort 2 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder

  • 5 of 5

Als wir unsere Ferienwohnung betraten, wussten wir sofort, das wird eine tolle Zeit.

Die saubere, gepflegte, moderne und farblich abgestimmte Einrichtung ließ keine Wünsche offen. Besonders positiv zu erwähnen ist die Ausstattung der Küche. Handtücher, Bettwäsche und Tischdecken neuer Zustand und sauber.

Leider empfanden wir die Matratze im Elternschlafzimmer extrem hart.

Fazit: Die Wohnung ist unbedingt weiterzuempfehlen.

BONITO APARTAMENTO CERCA DE LA PLAYA

  • 4 of 5

El apartamento esta en muy buenas condiciones y limpio. La urbanización es muy tranquila y la piscina está bien cuidada. La ubicación es muy buena ya que está cerca de la playa y además en un lugar céntrico del Algarve que te permite visitar varias ciudades en tu viaje. Los propietarios son muy formales y amables.

Appartement très agréable dans une région magnifique.

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est spacieux (surtout pour 3), bien agencé et bien équipé, y compris avec un enfant en bas âge. Seul regret: l'absence de wifi. La terrasse qui donne sur le jardin est agréable, bien que peu ensoleillée à cette période de l'année (septembre). Un petit chemin à travers les pins maritimes mène en un petit quart d'heure à pied à la superbe plage de Falesia. Enfin l'accueil (à distance) des propriétaires, Rui et Custódia, a été très aimable. Ils se sont même montrés très arrangeants sur notre heure de départ (checking out) pour nous faciliter la vie avec notre bébé. Merci encore à eux pour cela.
