About the property

Apartment in Montechoro, Albufeira, Central Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location on Small Complex, 5 Min Walk to the Strip and 15 Mins to Beaches

New and luxurious very large 3 bedroom apartment to sleep 6 people. Fully air-conditioned and very well equipped and tastefully furnished with excellent quality furniture throughout. The apartment is in a quiet area, but is only a 5 min walk to the shops, restaurants, bars etc. It is a 25 min ride from Faro airport by transfer which can be arranged. It has a very large lounge and kitchen with fridge/freezer, washing machine and 3 bathrooms. It has 4 balconies; 3 facing the sea, the other overlooking the swimming pools/snack bar. There is air-conditioning in all bedrooms and the lounge. It has a TV, DVD and a built-in music system to each bedroom and the lounge. There is a built-in barbeque on the large balcony with table and chairs. Good quality bedding/towels throughout. Tiled floors throughout, thus keeping it cool. This apartment has been described by estate agents over there as, 'truly unique' and it certainly is!

It has fibre optic wifi which has speeds up to 100 Mbps and English tv channels.

No need to 'reserve' sun beds as I have my own on the poolside.

I am a secondary school teacher who has been travelling to Portugal for thirty years so am pretty clued up on most things to do with Portugal!

I spend most of my school holidays each year in Portugal and never tire of it!

GILL DOWNING purchased this apartment in 2006

Why GILL DOWNING chose Montechoro

I bought my penthouse after years of looking for the right property for me. It was built by one of the best builders in the Algarve and as such the finish is superb. I bought in this area for various reasons including the spectacular views from the three balconies, the privacy this apartment commands, the quietness and friendliness of the locals and neighbours and also because it is a five minute walk to the top of the strip and the supermarket.

What makes this apartment unique

Luxury and spectacular views. Fantastic, quiet location that is 5 minutes from everything you need.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Truly wonderful apartment which is of the highest quality. Thank you for a most relaxing holiday and letting us use your beautiful home.'

'The best apartment we have ever stayed in-luxury'-will definitely be in touch again...thanks for all your help too.

A lovely property.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very well equipped & furnished to a good standard. The pool area is well maintained & ideal for families, buses to town are frequent & the bus stop is a two minute walk away. the strip is approx a ten minute walk. Overall we were highly satisfied with the accommodation & its location.The area is quiet & away from the hustle & bustle of the strip, but close enough to walk to. Gill is a lovely lady & very helpful.
