About the property

Apartment in Albufeira (Old Town), Algarve, Portugal - Residential Location, Few Mins Walk To Beach (Approx 250m) And Approx 500m From Old Town Square

Large one bedroom apartment ( Special long winter let rates also available on request ), completed in July 06, situated in residential part of the Old Town of Albufeira. Its top floor situation makes this a rather special location, with its breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. Although very close to all the amenities (countless restaurants, cafes and bars), it is far enough away not to be disturbed by any negative noise factors. This apartment is in block of 3 only, again making this accommodation very attractive.

A 4 minute walk to the beach lift, a few more minutes walk to the Old Town Square.

A Communal pool with refreshment options is available, just a short 7 min approx walk, a season ticket is purchased for this Properties Clients for summer use.

Willing to spread payments into 3 installments if reserved long time ahead.

Lovley Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment description was very accurate and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and very clean. It was lovley to sit on the balcony and we had a good view of the sea and beach.The location was quite central but very quiet-a 4-5 minute walk to the centre of old Albufeira. We went to the pool that can be used a few times and this is only a short walk away and very good. Andy the owner was very helpful and answered all our enquiries very quickly before and during our stay. I would highly recommend these apartments and hopefully we will be returning soon for a longer stay.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Bright clean apartment, with modern decor. 10 mins walk to main square in Albufeira. Large balcony which caught the sun until about 2pm. Also has an impressive view over the beach in one direction and the sea in another! On a practical note, great power shower and hot water, also has a washing machine. We had a car and parking was available sometimes outside on the street, however there is a large car park a couple of minutes walk away behind the apartment. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here despite the weather not being the best. Would recommend this apartment without hesitation.

Great Apartment and location - What more can I say

  • 5 of 5

Well there is quite a bit more I can say but I won't go on! This is our 4th visit to one of Andy's apartments and they have all been absolutely spotless and comfortable with everything you will need for your stay. Andy's pick up and drop off at the airport just takes away the hassle when you land, and of course there is always Andys `banter' to look forward to as well. Fishermans beach and the Old Town Square are 5 minutes walk from the apartment, and the swimming pool is only a short distance too. We love the Algarve and have been visiting for years but we always come back to Albufeira and Andy apartment. Too many lovely restaurants to mention but a favourite of ours is the Bailote, the lamb is fantastic. Again, too many good pubs to visit but our favourite is Harrys on the square. See you again soon Andy. Deb & Kevin

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

Our first time to Portugal and we were not disappointed. Andy really is "on the ball" the booking process was simple, quick and very efficient. The appartment is very spacious, well equipped and spotless. It has everything you need for a fantastic holiday and Andy was at the other end of the phone if you needed anything, one time he provided directions to the closest taxi rank. Andy also picked us up from the airport and as promised, due to our late flight, provided a much appreciated welcome pack.

We nearly missed out on this fab appartment because I had my reservations about the pool. So glad we booked, the pool is only a short walk away, professionally managed and at times it was like having your own private pool.

We will highly recommend this appartment to family and friends.

Second visit and we'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely apartment and what a great owner! We loved it last year and couldn't wait to get back. Nice walking distance into the old town, so many places to eat and Andy picked us up at the airport so no hassle with hire car etc!

The best equipped apartment we have ever been in with everything you could want - including excellent wifi for keeping in touch with family.

Thanks Andy!
