Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our 3rd fantastic holiday in one of Andy's apartments. Beautiful spotless apartment, comfortable with everything you will need for your stay. Andy's pick up airport to door and return is a real plus. 5 minutes walk from the Old Square and Fishermans beach - perfect. See you again soon Andy. Deb & Kevin

Our family of 4 stayed in andy's newest appartment from August 5 - 15th. What a wonderful experience we had. From the moment of our arrival, with andy arranging our pick up from airport to appartment, throughout our whole holiday, andy made sure all our needs were catered for. The appartment was spotless, large enough four the 4 of us and very comfortable. Andy was only ever a phonecall away, with great advice and local knowledge.Nothing was ever a problem to him. we will definately be going back to portugal, and andy's will be our first choice. not only did we have a lovely holiday, we gained a friend.

2nd visit, third next year

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at the apartment, it was exactly what we wanted first time round but had some extras on our 2nd visit with the new flat screen tv and wifi. Everything and more for your stay is within the apartment which is spacious, clean and modern. The security system gives you peace of mind and is easy to use. The local area and Portuguese locals are friendly and it is a short walk to the shops, old town, beach and pool. All of which are of a very good standard.

Everything for a relaxing holiday.

On our first holiday Nikki picked us up and dropped us back off at the airport, on our 2nd Andy, both very friendly and offering great service and attention to detail and always only a phone call away if ever needed.

We will be returning next year for more of the same !

Highly recommended by us

Relaxation without stress

  • 5 of 5

Excellently situated and well appointed apartment for a stress free relaxing holiday. Not recommended for people with walking problems being located up a very steep hill. However, taxis are plentiful & cheap. There is also a bus stop directly outside the apartment. Andy,your host, is most helpful and easily available for help and advise. Would have no hesitation in booking this apartment again.

Car: not necessary


The nearest beach is 5 minutes walk (old town beach), approx 300m away.


Faro airport is aprox 30 minutes drive by car. Car hire/taxi is not essential for this property but would be recommended if wanting to travel around the area. Personal airport transfers can be arranged prior to arrival.


The 'strip' area of Albufeira is only a 5 minute short taxi journey from the Old Town or an approximate 30 minute walk along the coastal footpath/road from the top of the escalator in the old town to near the bottom of the strip.

There are also many attractions in the area including Water Parks, Zoo Marine, Algarve Shopping and because of the central position of this apartment these are all within a twenty minute drive.

Further Details:

The new Marina in Albufeira is easily accessible via a new walkway connecting the Old Town coast to the Marina. This is becoming a lively attraction with shops, restaurants and bars.
