Fabulous & spacious property.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this property last week, the whole apartment is really spacious, two large bedrooms and bathrooms. A large terrace to sit out & chill. Everything you need is provided.

We found the walks down to the centre a really easy walk no more than 10 minutes and no problem getting back up. I would say if you had difficulty walking then you would possibly struggle. The pool area is really good fairly large pool and plenty of sun beds, lovely bar with friendly staff.

The whole experience from booking with Chris the owner & our transfer from the airport to Albufeira was first class. We would have no hesitation in recommending this place and will be going again next year.

Great apartment, very spacious and well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment, larger than the pictures lead you to imagine!

Fully equipped with everything you could possibly want including a fridge freezer, dish washer, full oven and hob, washing machine and all the standard kitchen appliances.

15 minute walk to the old town and main square which is bustling with entertainment and eating places.

We walked down every night but got a taxi back on a few occasions as it was quite a steep slog up part of the way back to the apartment.

The complex has a lovely pool with plenty of loungers and parasols and glorious panaramic view across Albufiera

The whole experience from the ease of booking and the communication from Chris the owner was first class!

The complex was so relaxing and peaceful and after the hustle and bustle of the square it was lovely to retire to the haven of the apartment! And the beds were lovely and comfortable too, which always helps!

There is a shop area in the bar by the pool for essentials which is open until midnight for those little emergencies! There is also a fully stocked supermarket just 5 minutes walk away.

Would definitely reccomend this apartment and complex to anyone looking for a break in Albufeira close to the old town and square area

A credit to the owners, thank you for a lovely holiday

A very nice complex but needs more sun beds/ table & chairs

  • 3 of 5

A very nice place lots off room clean and tidy.

I found that I had to sit more on the grass because there was not enough sun beds

The walk down to the beach is nice but would not recommend if you are small children in buggys. You need a good set of lungs

Over all it's a grate place to visit

Fantastic accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in July with our one year old daughter. It was a fantastic location for getting to the old town (if you don't mind pushing the buggy back up the steep hills - but we were prepared for that!)

The accommodation was a real home-from-home and had everything we needed. The large outside patio area was great for us to enjoy the sun while our daughter was inside having a nap.

One tiny issue were the 5 or 6 marble steps. We did know that the apartment was split level but they were quite wide and open - just had to keep an eye on our explorer little girl at all times when inside!

Overall a great apartment which I would highly recommend!
