About Julie Swinburne

I Julie have worked with children and families for many years, my husband Clive was in the Royal Navy for 24 years and now has a business within the British caravan industry. We have four wonderful grandchildren who absolutely love staying at the apartment and visiting the nearby attractions such as Zoo Marine and Aqualand and playing in the pools. We have owned a caravan for many years and travelled extensively. We live in a village in North East Linconshire where I have lived all my life.

Julie Swinburne purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Julie Swinburne chose Alpouvar

After visiting The Agarve and numerous properties in the area this property and Clube Albufeira ticked all the boxes. We fell in love with this one due firstly to it being on the ground floor (no awkward steps) with it's sunny south facing terrace where you can spill out onto the grass and your children can play safely, or relax in the sun with a glass of wine. We absolutely loved the stunning views to the distant hills and glimpse of the sea and the tropical planting which offers you privacy from the pool. We also liked the safe family environment such as surveillance camera's and security which Clube Albufeira offers with its numerous facilities and easy access to wider amenities, water and marine parks, theme parks, and beaches which The Algarve offers. We also loved the style of the property and the fact that there are no high rise properties there.

I'm sure we will have many happy years and memories to enjoy in the future

What makes this apartment unique

We loved the fact that this apartment is just a stones throw to the nearest three in one pool, one being a paddling pool, all set within lovely gardens, where you are free to spill out onto and the children can play safely. It is also the only pool on the complex which is heated in the colder months. There is also a small children's play area within easy watching distance. But is still wonderful for couples and the grown ups as It is in what is known as 'the village or quiet area'. We absolutely love to sit on the wonderful south facing terrace and drink in the wonderful views, preferably with a glass of the excellent local wine or port.

Lovely apartment, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for 2 weeks in August with our 13 year old son. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. Excellent location as It's only 10 second walk from the pool. The apartment has all the kitchen equipment you need to cook meals or prepare snacks. There are lots of DVDs of recent films which was great. The supermarket on site although small is very well stocked with fresh bread every day. We had a great relaxing family holiday here.

Lovely apartment, super location

  • 5 of 5

.Had a super holiday with husband and 2 kids aged 13,9 few minutes walk to the nearest pool/poolbar. 3 other pools available but due to location tended to stay at the nearest one. Good supermarket on site which sold a large variety of goods. Went into Old Town each night which was easy to get to and from using taxi's from reception.

Owner's Response: Thankyou very much for you positive feedback. We are so glad you and your family had a great time. We aim to provide the little extras which help make holidays that bit special Yes we too think the location of our apartment is ideal, with being south facing, extra garden space and having a lovely view with just a few strides to the pool. We think we are very fortunate in owning a holiday home on Clube Albufeira Many thanks Julie and Clive

Great location and also inside a nice and clean apartment. Even wifi because close to the pool!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in the apartment. We've had a great holiday.

Inside the apartment was perfect. Airco really convenient with temp over 30 degrees! Two nice bathrooms. We watched our own DVDs almost every night.

Location also convenient. We've got a three year old and because there bushes in front of the apartment, she couldn't just walk to the swimming pool.

Clube Albufeira is a great parc for kids. Nice swimming pools, the one closest was 20 second walk. Poolbar with take away Sangria! Bring the carafe from the apartment and they fill it. Nice for evening dinners at apartment!

The biggest pool is 5 min walk.

Restaurant o pavilhão is really nice!! Better then casa azul.

We rented a car! It's really a must, soooo worth the extra money. The lidl is 5 min drive, but over 25 min walk....hill up....

We went to several beaches. Falesia beach was our favorite. Wide, sandy and water slowly deeper. Perfect for little ones. If you've got older kids or none, go to rafaelo beach or Praia de marinha, really pretty.

Praia de coelha is perfect if you want to find shells to bring home as souvenir. Huge ones!!

Almost every beach has its own beach restaurant. They all serve fresh seafood, nice and not expensive and awesome views!

Zoomarine expensive but nice for kids.

Boot trip with dreamwave dreamer was great, went with morning ride and we saw lots of wild dolphins!

We've had a great time! Thanks July for all the answers to my questions!

I would definitely recommend this apartment!

Owner's Response: Thank you Saskia for your wonderful review and all of your helpful tips and information for our future guests. It confirms there are numerous lovely places to visit on The Algarve for both families and couples alike. It was our pleasure to have this lovely family to stay in our apartment and hope they will come to stay again. We have had some wonderful guests this year may it continue.

Nice Apartment great holiday

  • 5 of 5

A very well equipped apartment in a nice location on the site. We were very grateful for the welcome pack of drinks and breakfast supplies (since we had a late arrival). Booking with owners was very efficient and accommodating and Christine on site kept in touch to make sure all ok.

Perfect

  • 4 of 5

Myself and my Husband , 21 year old daughter, her boyfriend and our 15 year old son stayed here for 10 fantastic days. a lovely welcome pack was waiting for us with the essentials, perfect.The bungalow was perfect with all we needed, very spacious, and the pool and snack bar was only 20 steps away from the patio. Julie and Clive were so helpful with organizing our stay, cant thank them enough. As there was 5 of us we got the 7 seater bus from the reception every night into Old Town,1.50 euro per head, better than two taxis, beautiful place , plenty of restaurants to choose from , and lovely little shops.The kids sorted out the wifi in no time, reception was always helpful with all our needs.The walk into Oldtown is very easy 20 mins , but as we were on holidays we took the bus. I can highly recommend this lovely bungalow in Clube Albufeira , and we will definitely be back in the very near future, Julie and Clive Thank you so much, x

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived home from spending 12 nights in this apartment in Clube Albufeira Resort. The complex is really beautiful. Grounds are very well attended too with lovely greenery and palm trees everywhere. There are 4 pools in the complex, all a very good size and within 5mins walk of this apartment. One of the pools is actually just 30 seconds from the terrace door which was perfect for our kids who played in there morning until night on some days. There is a mini market on site which was great for topping up on essentials. We did our main big shop from Lidl which was about a 20 minute walk away (good idea to ask someone in Lidl to call you a taxi home as the taxi rank outside very rarely has taxis come through and some people were standing for over an hour in the baking heat). The Old Town was also a 20 minute walk away with lots of restaurants and market stalls. There are 2 snack bars and 2 restaurants in the complex which served all the food you would expect to keep hungry kids happy. We also played mini golf in the complex on a cloud covered morning which was good fun.

The apartment itself was really lovely and very well equipped. It was spotlessly clean and had a washing machine, tumble dryer and dish washer to use. It is in a great location within the complex being right beside the 2nd biggest pool, 2 minutes walk from a smaller pool and 5 minutes walk from the biggest pool which is huge and our kids absolutely loved.

The only thing we would do differently about this holiday would be to hire a car. We would like to travel around the coast a bit more and see more of the Algarve beaches but also we found it very difficult to get a taxi that would take 5 of us. We ended up on a few occasions getting 2 taxis home from the Old Town which was double the cost. Clube Albufeira run a free shuttle bus to the Old Town during the day leaving at 10am and picking back up at 5pm and would also offer the same service at night for 1.50euro PP after 5.30pm which for us worked out just about the same cost as a taxi but for less people it would be cheaper.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was a very relaxing holiday and a perfect apartment for our family. Beds/sofa bed extremely comfortable, boards games for kids, DVDs selection, brand new TV/Blueray player, XBox, 2 leather recliners along with comfortable sofa and dining chairs/table. We would definitely return to Clube Albufeira. Thanks to Julie and Clive for being so helpful and accommodating.
