About Barbara

We have been travelling to Portugal all our married life and developed close and long lasting friendships with locals within the Algarve area. Our properties our managed by one of these friends, a British couple Billy and Lorraine Hamilton who have been living and working in the Algarve for some years now and proved themselves invaluable when organising apartment maintenance plus airport transfers for our guests. We have also forged great relationships with local restaurateurs and can recommend lots of lovely places to eat, just ask when booking, we will be happy to provide you with literature on all local interests such as water parks, day trips and beaches.

Why Barbara chose Montechoro

We have been travelling to the Algarve for over 30 years and although we have visited other countries we always look forward to returning to Portugal.

We bought our apartment new and of plan in 2016, the reason we chose Parque da Corcovada and Albufeira was for its central location within the Algarve plus the apartment is perfectly positioned in Albufeira and within easy walking distance to all amenities. The apartment is ground floor and was chosen for their ease of access, large south facing terrace, no small balconies. The terrace is fully equipped with sun beds, loungers, parasols and patio table and chairs. It also has the added advantage of small well maintained garden.

What makes this apartment unique

When staying at our property you will benefit from a private complex with no club reps or distractions just luxurious accommodation in a quiet and well managed condominium. The complex has its own security, cool underground parking for those of you who hire cars and like somewhere safe and secure to keep it.

The apartment is fully equipped with everything you will need for a safe and relaxing holiday. Sun beds plus loungers, parasols, beach/pool toys for small children, DVD player with a large collection of DVDs, there is also an on site DVD and games store available to guests (small deposit required when renting payable in store).

By far the most visited area in Alufeira is 'the strip' this street has lots of bars and restaurants, is only a 5 mins walk from our properties.

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

We have used both of Stephen and Barbara's apartments extensively over the past 6 years and they are both a credit to the fabulous owners. From booking, through arrival and during your stay Stephen 'goes the extra mile' to ensure the process is stress free and I honestly can not praise the owners enough.

The apartments are ideally situated, only 5 minutes from the strip but with plenty of quieter bars and restaurants nearby to offer great variety.

The apartments themselves are spacious, well equipped, beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. It is like walking into someone's home rather than a rental property.

Both owners and accommodation are simply 5 star and We hope to be enjoying Stephen and Barbara's unique hospitality for many years to come.

Luxuries 5 star apartments

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to this particular apartment for 6 years in a row, that says it all!! The apartment is of 5 star quality, decorated modern and tasteful and well equipped with everything you need, a real home from home. They are well maintained, spotlessly clean and every year we return we notice something new that has been updated. The pool area and surrounding gardens are beautiful. The location is fantastic and there is so much to see and do for couples and families. We have many restraunts we return to each year such as Ricardos and Shalom in the old town. Customer service is excellent, from enquiring, booking and arriving to the apartments is stress free. The owners respond very quickly and arrange everything for you. I would highly recommend these apartments as we have stayed in many places but nothing has came close to being as perfect as this one.

5 star a real home from home.

  • 5 of 5

Friends of our have stayed at this apartment before and rated it highly so we thought we would give it a go. The owners were very helpful during the booking process and delivered on all their promises. This apartment has everything we needed for our short stay, large terrace close to the fridge and all mod cons inside. There was a very useful guest booked with advise on where to eat and how to get there. We enjoyed our stay so much we have re-booked for next summer 2017.

1st class

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this apartment for last six years, always in August. The apartment is always well presented and has all mod cons, a real home from home. The owners Stephen & Barbara take and great pride in their apartments, they're like old friends to us now although we have never met, face to face. We can't stay this year 2016 we were too late inquiring and found its already booked but we have reserved August dates for 2017, can't wait.

Further Details:

Albufeira has been, since 1960, the first town in the Algarve to be developed for international tourism due to its 23 stunning white sandy beaches, to the miles of beautiful red stoned cliffs and the rugged coves. The region was elected "Established golf destination of the year 2006" by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators.

Albufeira offers far more than just sun and sea as it still retains much of a small-town charm. Each night fishing boats set off from the beach, returning with fresh fish to be sold in the local markets. Bars and restaurants still sell authentic food and Portuguese wine at reasonable prices. The colours, flavours and aromas create unique moments of gastronomic tradition, supplying the necessary energy to all sporting opportunities, mainly in the golf courses designed by international masters, and the water sports supported by a state-of-art marina. This is the portrait of an Algarve that awaits you all year round.

Further notes for golfers: Being centrally located, Parque da Corcovada is a convenient base for golfers. The five Vilamoura courses are only 15 minutes drive away. Balaia, Salgados and Pine Cliffs a mere 5 minutes drive. Other great golf courses like Quinta do Lago, S. Lorenzo and Vale do Lobo or Vila Sol are just an easy half-hour drive away. See www.algarvegolf.net/courses/index.htm for details of discounted green fees and package bookings.

Algarve shopping Centre is a must see, it has a large selection of shops, bowling alleys, food hall with many restaurants and 9 screen cinema, many films are in English.
