About the property

Apartment in Sao Rafael near Albufeira, Central Algarve - Peaceful Setting, 5 mins Walk to Beach

Privately owned spacious 2 bedroom apartment situated in the tranquil resort of Sao Rafael. Set within beautiful gardens, Sao Rafael has been described as the ‘gem of the Algarve’. However, what makes this area so special are the numerous blue flag beaches and beach coves within several minutes walk from our apartment. The typical Algarve sands of Sao Rafael and adjoining Coelha and Castella areas are amongst the best in Europe. The main beaches are complimented with excellent sea front restaurants. For a change of pace a 5 euro taxi ride takes you into the centre of charming Albufeira town and the famous Fisherman's Beach. For golf enthusiasts Salgados Golf Course is only 2km away.
