About the property

Apartment in Albufeira, Central Algarve, Portugal - Great Central Location For Beaches And Restaurants

Located by the water fountain roundabout in the new part of Albufeira, this modern, air-conditioned, spacious, two bedroom, two bathroom apartment is ideally situated for the beaches, shops, restaurants and golf course. A 35 minutes drive from Faro airport. Parque da Corcovada complex was built in 2006 to a very high specification. On the complex there are two restaurants, a children's play area and mini golf. This apartment has advantage of overlooking the main pool which is surrounded by gardens. There is also a children's pool. The pools are restricted access by specific apartment key holders only. Praia D'Oura beach is the nearest beach( maximum of a 20 minute walk), which has snack bars and water sports. There is also Santa Eulalia beach which is a quieter beach but a little further away (approx 22 minutes walk). Fisherman's beach and the marina in the old town are also only 30 minutes walk or 5 minutes in a taxi. Balaia Golf course is 5 minutes by car.

I've always loved Portugal since wife and I went there on our honeymoon.When we were looking to buy and the agents showed us this new development at Parque da Corcovada we instantly decided to buy as the location was perfect and the apartment such a high standard .I would have no hesitation in telling people to come to Portugal. We like that the apartments are quite and secure , with their own security watchmen! yet it has the benefit of being so close to a lovely beach down the strip. We love going back to Albufeira as you don't need to drive and we love the variety of restaurants you can go to and the long beach walks you can go on, we often walk the beach route to the old town.

Over the years we have had so many guest returning so we are sure you will also love Albufeira and you will really enjoy yourself!
