About Mark Frampton

Working in animal nutrition I travel the world sourcing the very best ingredients for our products. I have visited many beautiful counties but it is still Portugal which is my favourite as it remains one of the most beautiful and relaxing countries in the world and the perfect place to have a holiday. My wife Jackie works for a firm of solicitors and is a keen golfer. Our boys are both at University.

Mark Frampton purchased this apartment in 2008

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is the only apartment on our complex to have an open main balcony and two additional balconies so you can enjoy the sun from sunrise to sunset. There are two sunloungers on the balcony with additional reclining chairs for you to enjoy. There is also a full size table on the balcony should you wish to enjoy a meal alfresco.

From the balcony you have a full 180 degree view over the sea. You can also enjoy views over the marina and the swimming pool. The best of all worlds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We love the three baconys. We can follow the sun from sunrise to sunset every day. Fantasic views over to the sea and the marina or overlooking the two swimming pools. We stayed at a different apartment here before but were in the shade for much of the day whereas this aprtment is in a unique position in the complex and has sun all day. Our third visit to this apartment and we will be back again" Janet and John - Macclesfield

“We had a marvellous holiday and having such an excellent base makes a real difference. Having visited this area many times before, we would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending your accommodation to friends and family. Should we ourselves revisit in the future we would be delighted to stay there again. Many thanks for your help”. John & Rosemary - Glasgow

Lovely apartment with great views

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious and cosy with fabulous views of the sea and the Albufeira marina. The beds are comfortable and there is plenty of storage/hanging space. The smallish kitchen has everything you could need. The 3 balconies give views on 3 sides and there are chairs on one of them and a table for eating with chairs and 2 loungers, overlooking the sea on another one.

Access is easy from the car park underneath and by lift or by the front door and stairs, so being on the first floor is easy, even for people who are less able bodied. The swimming pool is clean and lovely, though it is not heated.

The apartment is situated on a hill so a car is recommended, but you can easily walk down to the town where there are many restaurants and bars. The beach is super. There are so many golf courses to choose from in the area. I would recommend Salgados, where you can see lots of birdlife as well as play an interesting round of golf. There is plenty of room to store clubs in the apartment when you are having a golf free day.

The owners were very helpful. Well worth the money.

Notes on accommodation: Featured development in Ch 4 Place in the Sun Home or Away. March 2012 as recommended by lead presenter Jasmime Harman who use to live in Portugal and an expert on dream holiday locations. Just some of the quotes from the show: "Well placed, good use of space, everything you want" "For a holiday home this could be perfect" "That really has the big wow factor - big wow factor' "Dream holiday hideaway" The apartment is in a unique position on site and with three balconies you can follow the sun from sunrise to sunset. The accommodation is ideal for families, young professionals, couples lucky enough to be retired, golfers and those looking for a relaxing break in comfort. Sorry single sex groups under 25 years old are not allowed. Our apartment is on the next level up to the one shown in the TV episode and is bigger and brighter plus it has and additional balcony that is twice as large as the balcony seen in the show. Outside: The apartment balcony is equipped with luxury patio furniture. There is also a selection of beach equipment, tennis rackets etc available. Free private tennis court. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All bedlinen and bathroom towels are provided. Please bring your own beach towels. The apartment is thoroughly cleaned at the start of each rental. Other: Beware some other two bedroom apartments on site are not what they seem!! They are one bedroom apartments where the rear balcony has been covered in and converted into a small additional second bedroom.
