A little piece of Albufeira heaven

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment that felt just like home, nicely furnished. Well equipped kitchen for those who cook on holiday, lots of books,DVD's. The different levels made it very interesting, the roof terrace is fabulous, lovely outdoor furniture, with views over the beach & old town, could have stayed looking at the view all day. The complex is quiet with a lovely pool area that was never too busy. More an adult retreat than a kids playground. About 15 minute walk from beach & old town but it is a steep walk back. Couple of minor things, I found the twin beds to be quite hard & low & we felt quite rushed on our last morning with the cleaners banging on the door at 9.45. All in all a wonderful place to stay & would highly recommend. Thanks Brenda.

A Little Piece Of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Albuferia and must say we were very impressed. Finding Brenda on the website was a godsend as she sent us a lot of information regarding the local amenities before we even left Ireland. This made our holiday so much more enjoyable as we didn't have to spend time trying to find the local supermarket, beach and variety of very pleasing restaurants.

On arrival at the apartment there was a welcome pack which was very much appreciated until we got our bearings. The apartment was fabulous, a home from home with the added bonus of sunshine every day. It was so well furnished inside and out, we couldn't off asked for better. A few nights were spent bar-b-quing on the balcony and just chilling with a glass of the local wine, lovely.

The surrounding grounds and pool area are all very well kept and the snack bar is very handy for light refreshments and a spot of lunch.

10 minutes will walk you downhill to the old town and local beach which is bustling with activity. All hills on the way back up but this wasn't a problem for us as we enjoying walking. Local taxis will take you back for around €5.

Janet and her son Tom popped in to make sure everything was going ok with our stay and even gave us some friendly advice about the local area.

All in all this apartment was absolutely brilliant and hopefully we will be able to return again soon.

Perfection - quite and safe

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at this apartment I had no worries that everything I could wish for was there. Well furnished with every modern device you would need. Carefully decorated by Brenda and Gerry, very modern, in leather, chrome, glass, mirrors, and marble/granite so care a must. Welcome Pack delivered as we arrived by Manager Tom who oversees the Apartment. Property very clean, and good beds and bedding, state of the art hob and oven, dishwasher and washing machine.Sun terrace well furnished with seats for 10 people with store with additional toys, Lilo, footballs, tennis racquets parasols, cushions, bar -b q, and more.

This property is wonderful, situated close to pool, cafe and within 10mins walk to sea front, steep hill back taxi only 4/5 euro.

I totally enjoyed my holiday and would fully recommend it to those who want that little bit of luxury, peace and quite with the ultimate in decor and design. A definite choice for couples wanting that bit of luxury.

Walked to town everyday, ate at Shalom 1 &2 excellent value and quality. Also little bakery on corner of square beside ATM serves team and coffee with cakes hard to see only door visible.

Bar Street and Square good craic at night from the balloon artists, to the clowns, the dancers and the musical groups performing all free in the Square from 7.30pm, then Bar Street has an array of performers keeping the area entertained with singalongs. Nothing loud but songs for all ages.

Walked quite a bit, ate quite a bit, enjoyed every minute of my holiday. Definitely would recommend a Piece of Heaven in Alburferia. I am not easy to please, this was brillant.

Thank you so much for all your help Brenda & Gerry. See you next year pencil me in.

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.
