Super, well equipped apartment in good location

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 days in this lovely apartment which is in a great location - not too close to noisy bars and right beside a supermarket so no car required! The bedrooms have lovely fresh, clean white bed linen and the beds are very comfortable. Plenty of wardrobe and drawer space too. Bathrooms are lovely with bath and shower in the en suite. The kitchen is very well equipped. This was important to us as I like to cook when on holiday (not every night of course!). There is a large terrace with a charcoal BBQ where you can cook steaks from the lovely butcher in the municipal market three minutes away (beside the supermarket). Fresh bread and croissants are available every day from 0800 in the supermarket, including Sundays. The terrace is large as the apt is on the second floor which is the top of the building. The only thing I would have liked is an umbrella to give some shade as it's nice to be able to enjoy lunch outside but the sun was so hot it was heating the plates!! Jackie was brilliant - very helpful both before and during our stay. We had a fantastic welcome pack which allowed us to enjoy a lovely lunch on arrival. The complex is very secure with coded gates and there is a parking space too. Views from the sea from the patio too. We highly recommend this place. There is a main road beside it but it's not overly noisy. Pool and gardens lovely and well kept.

A first class apartment and holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many apartments across Europe and this was up with the best. The photos don't do it justice, it is spacious, well furnished and very well equipped and presented. The only single suggestion we can make is the table on the terrace needs a sunshade and if you want UK TV, forget it! the WiFi connection is there but not strong.

Jackie and Tony are fantastic hosts. Nothing is too much troubler, a welcome pack awaits you with all the essentials including much needed beer and wine! Before our arrival Jackie was kind enough to arrange a very competitively priced hire car, the price was way better than I achieved on the net.

Location brilliant, nearest decent restaurant 10 minutes walk, beach 15 mins, supermarket next door - 100 metres! Weather was fabulous, 28 and sunshine all week. A really great holiday.

Fantastic Apartment, Pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 10 day stay at this apartment and I must say the pictures on the site do not do it justice. Its clean, airy and just a joy to stay in.

Jackie has been a pleasure to deal with from the very offset of arranging this trip. She made all the necessary arrangements for me and my family even when I added 2 extra people for extra beds to arranging the airport transfers.

She was waiting for us at the apartment and we were pleasantly surprised to find a stocked fridge with all the necessary requirements for 6 hungry travelers. There was fresh bread rolls, meats, cheeses, milk, eggs, drinks, beers and most importantly wine. That's a winner in my book!!

She showed us around the apartment which we found to be in excellent condition and spotless. Bedding was pristine and there was extra in the cupboards if needed.

The apartment was equipped with all the necessary essentials like iron, hairdryer, microwave and a washing machine. Sorry but i was impressed!

The larger balcony area has a built in BBQ, which my boyfriend was SO impressed with, he made me take pictures so we may try and replicate it at home! The balcony area has a lovely shaded area which was a must when the heat just got too intense for us, which it did every day. It was very relaxing to sit and watch the world go by or watching fellow guests play tennis.

The pool area was perfect just the right depth so my kids were never in any danger and we were quite happy in the water for most part of the day . The 4 sun loungers were also great as there was no early morning frenzy to bag them before they got snapped up. The apartment was well stocked with bits and pieces for the kids to take down to the pool or the beach which is a short 10 minute walk, which saved us from buying unnecessary bits.

I loved the fact that everything was literally a walk away, the supermarket next door (literally) was stocked up with all the essentials we needed for our trip, the restaurants were a short walk away so this was extremely convenient.

The only thing i will say and this is from the youngsters within our group and that is the wifi was a bit poor, especially as the TV ran off the wifi so weren't able to watch TV, this bothered the kids more than me.

All in all it was a great, well maintained apartment and I will have no hesitation in booking again if I go back to lovely Portugal and will be recommending it to family and friends.

Thanks Jackie and Tony, you guys were fantastic.

Great location, clean, spacious & quiet fab pool!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment exceeded our expectations in terms of size compared to photos also very smart and clean (inc communual areas) Spacious bedrooms with extras like makeup mirror in bathroom, hairdryer and very well fitted kitchen.

Surprised to find a very good welcome pack with everything for breakfast/lunch (fresh bread/ eggs/ cheese/ ham/ beer/ wine/ juice etc) made even better as we had late night arrival. Bedding was lovely nice white crisp covers/sheets that fitted and two pillows each - often a sticking point in rented accommodation. Beds bit harder than at home but for Portugal we all thought they were pretty good.

Pool was brilliant especially for children as shallow area joined to main pool by a paddle zone of 2/3 inches deep lovely to lie in to cool down and sun bathe too. Very good direct access to pool from lift and most importantly 4 dedicated sun loungers, no arguing or putting towels on at 6am! Fairly busy road on other side of hedge which you hear less round pool and not at all indoors. Whole area secure with key access gates on every entrance so totally private and safe.

Didn't use TV/DVD etc as having too much fun in the pool and on the lovely beach which is only 10 min downhill walk away (uphill on way back of course!)

Only thing that could be suggested for the apartment itself would be a larger umbrella for a bit more shade on balcony for eating lunch probably only a problem in July and August.

Tony and Jackie were very helpful and clearly take pride in keeping the apartment clean and organised. They greeted us to show us apartment even at 11pm and were on hand whenever we needed anything.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Faro at 35 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : at 300 Metres Nearest Golf : Balaia Golf at 1 Kilometres Nearest Train : Ferreiras at 10 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : EN125 at 5 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : at 300 Metres Nearest Beach : Olhos de Agua at 1.3 Kilometres Car: not necessary

Olhos De Água is just to the east of Albufeira. Once a small fishing village it has expanded over recent years and has a good choice of restaurants and bars both in the village and its surrounding area. The village itself is set on a hill leading down to the beautiful sandy beach and pedestrianised walk way.

On the walk to the beach you will come across some excellent restaurants and bars, the nearest being only a short stroll away. All other amenities are close by including a large supermarket (a 2 minute walk), shops, excursion offices, a taxi rank, cash points and banks.

“The Strip” (the newer part of Albufeira), where there are numerous restaurants, bars, music bars, etc. is a short taxi ride away, or indeed walkable if you like walking (about 25 minutes). The Old Town is less than 10 minutes by taxi. In the opposite direction Vilamoura is about a 15 minute car/taxi ride as is the long beautiful beach at Falésia backed by distinctive high red sandstone cliffs.

As with the whole of the Algarve, you are spoilt for choice for beautiful beaches within easy reach. As well as Olhos de Água others nearby include Maria Luisa, Sta Eulalia, Praia D´Oura, Falesia and many more smaller coves. There are a variety of water sports on offer at many of the beaches.

The Algarve is a great place for outdoor activities and many of these are within easy reach including golf at Balaia, only a 15 minute walk away, water borne sports such as dolphin watching, sailing trips and deep sea fishing which can be picked up either on Albufeira Marina or Vilamoura Marina, horse riding at Vale Navio (Albufeira), tennis at Quinta da Balaia or Balaia Golf, diving, cycling (if you want to hire bikes we can organise for these to be delivered to the apartment), bird watching, walking along the beautiful coastline or organised walking groups, quad biking, safaris and more. The list is endless.

Water parks are very popular and the main ones are within a 15-30 minute drive including Zoomarine (where you can swim with the dolphins), Aqualand (the largest park), Slide and Splash and Aquashow. Krazyworld, which is a small zoo / theme park is also not too far. If you do not have a car then most of the parks run their own transport with collection points nearby.

For those of you who like to be pampered, there are some excellent spas in the area with top class facilities.

A car is not necessary for this location as all amenities and the beach are within walking distance. If you do want to go a little further then buses run along the main road to the front of the apartments taking you to other parts of Albufeira and Vilamoura.
