A Joy from start to finish

  • 5 of 5

Well from the warm welcome from Kevin who showed us around the apartment, we knew we had made the correct decision to book this beautiful apartment.

Spread over two floors it was simply immaculate , The ground floor had 3 twin sized bedrooms with private balcony's in each. This combined with very large Bathrooms with Baths, toilets and showers was perfect.

No issue with waiting for a shower here..

The apartment comes with a travel cot for the baby and we requested an extra one for the second baby which we got a a small charge both came with full bedding with was great.

The Upstairs had the main living area, this comprised a large fully equipped kitchen that most homes would be jealous of and a sitting area with two large sofa's and a large TV, Ipod docking station, dvd, android TV and a soundbar speaker. There is also a large dining table that seats 6, all with full air-con in each room it was a great place to relax after spending a afternoon swimming in the large pool or in the toddlers pool with our under 2's

Through the large sliding doors which leads out onto your own private the roof top terrace with stunning views of the Old Town and beach where you can enjoy sitting on a couch having a drink watching the sun go down. it was simply a delight.

Also on the terrace was a gas b.b.q and access to a washing machine and separate tumble dryer idea for when traveling with children

There is even a underground parking space if you have a Car , but to be honest Kevin even arrange collection to and from the airport for a fee .

The location is ideal very close to shops,restaurants and of course bars. but with a large kitchen we did a lot of cooking in the apartment.

The walk to the beach is only 3 mins which is great it you want to go for a jog or a walk on the beach in the morning.

I would highly recommend this apartment to all my friends.

Spectacular apartment with paranamic views

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a nine night stay in this fabulous penthouse apartment. It's our third visit to Albuferia and by far the best. The views from the roof top terrace were spectacular. We could watch the sun rise and then again in the evening we had the luxury of watching the sun set over The old tow. The apartment was immaculate and the location was ideal. Only a five minute walk to the 'strip' although we preferred the old town. Sir Harrys in the square was our favourite as they had live music every night. Just outside of the apartments was a lovely restaurant called Chilli Pepper. The beer garden at the rear also had a pool whiich you could use at your leisure. The food and service were outstanding. There is also a very large swimming pool and surrounding area which are very well maintained. Two minitues walk to the beach and you could even walk along to the old town. Our whole trip was effortless with the support of Maria who even arranged airport transport. I would defiantly recommend this property for anyone looking for luxury, spectacular views and a fab location. Can't wait to return

Beach was 5 min. walk. Old albufeira 15 min by beach or € 4 taxi. Communication with pr. manager Maria was a pleasure!

Apartment was spotlessly clean. Ideal position. We stayed in apartment 5 plenty off room for 4 people. Lovely view off front entrance, view off town and slight view off sea. Outside dining area was lovely and modern. Ideal for sitting out and relaxing. All modern facilities, dishwasher and washing machine, drying rail outside which was perfect. Can't fault the apartment or owners Maria and Colin Douglas. Excellent service, very attentive and also arranged airport transport which was stress free! Very enjoyable stay.

If this apartment does not have the dates that you need please ask about more of these amazing apartments listed here in Quinta de Barracuda. Several units are available great for extended family holidays

What’s so special?................With location being one of the keys to a great holiday, it is worth noting that the location here is truly remarkable, it boasts spectacular sea-views of Albufeira bay and the Old Town.

It's only a 2 minute stroll through the private gated access to the beach. A leisurely 15 minutes stroll along the beach takes you into the Old Town of Albufeira with it’s quaint cobbled streets and amazing cuisine.

The famous buzzing ‘Strip’ is only a 5 minute walk!

Golf: The Algarve was awarded 'Established Golf Destination Of The Year 2006' by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators.

There are 3 local golf courses a short drive away, the closest being a 5 minute drive away.

These are Salgados (18 holes), Pine Cliffs (9 holes) Balaia Golf (9 holes).

Some of the other world class golf courses in Vilamoura include Victoria, Millenium, Pinhal, and Old Course which are approximately 15-20 minutes drive away

In addition to the many courses in the central and western Algarve, there are also numerous high-class courses in the eastern Algarve and nearby Costa de la Luz in Spain. Amongst these are signature courses from two of the world's greatest names in golf; Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus, and Quinta Do Vale designed by Seve Ballesteros. Both of these courses can be reached from the apartment in around an hour.
