Enjoy the music, TV, DVDs, books and board games. The roof terraces are ideal for 'alfresco' dining or for simply enjoying a glass of wine while taking in the magnificent views, or watching the sun go down.

The complex is set in beautiful landscaped gardens with mature palm trees, fruit trees and shrubs. The complex is awash with colour for most of the year. The Windmill has been lovingly restored and sits alongside the swimming pool and snack bar, where a little jazz music in the background offers the perfect accompaniment to a light meal or drink. There is a tennis court and a football court and plenty of parking.

"It really was a home from home and I'm sure all your guests comment on this." Helen and Chris.

First class accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed in both Brenda's apartments and the standard of both are first class. They are extremely spacious, set over various levels and have have very large roof terraces with views over the town of albuferia and down the coast. The kitchens are well stocked and the DVDs, CDs books and games make it feel like a home from home. During my recent winter stay Brenda had provided portable heaters in case we needed a quick boost of heat while the static heaters warmed up (yet another welcome touch from the owner) Janet her manager in Portugal, called as usual to check we were happy with everything and offer advice about the area. There is also a well stocked folder of tourist leaflets and information in apartment. A pleasant walk downhill brings you into the old town and a slower uphill walk brings you back ( or a €5 taxi ) A perfect place to stay no matter what the weather is like. We will defiantly be returning again.

Car: not necessary


Windmill Hill is only an 8 to 10 minute walk to the nearest beach and is within easy reach of many other magnificent beaches and coves. It is within easy reach of the Marina, where several varieties of boat trips can be booked........dolphin watching, cave visits, coastline trips, fishing trips etc.


Windmill Hill is 40km from Faro airport. The airport is well serviced by several airlines. Taxis vary in price, but typically cost around €40 to €50. Car hire, although not essential, is readily available. Transfers cost from €30 - €35 from the airport.


Windmill Hill is just an 8 to 10 mins walk to the old town of Albufeira and a short distance to the Marina. A short taxi ride takes you to the vibrant 'Strip' 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 area around Albufeira provides opportunities to indulge in all varieties of water sports. Praia d'Oura, the beach closest to the 'Strip', offers Parasailing, Jet-skiing, Banana Boat, Rings, UFO etc. There are superb golf courses close to Albufeira. Salgados is the closest. Zoomarine, Aqua Parks, attractive villages, beaches, coves are within a short distance of Albufeira. There is a supermarket within a short walk of the complex. There are several bars and restaurants on the short route to the old town.
