About the property

Apartment in Parque da Corcovada, Rua Jornal A Avezinha, Albufeira, Algarve, Portugal - Overlooking Gardens And Shared Pools, 10 Minutes Walk To Beach, Close to Restaurants & the Strip!

This pleasant, well-situated apartment in Block 40 at the front of Parque da Corcovada, is a new concept in luxury and comfort. From the moment you enter the resort, you have the security of a private complex, with cool underground car parking from where you can take a lift directly to your apartment door. The apartment, which has Brazilian hardwood floors throughout, is a spacious, luxuriously-furnished lounge/dining room with patio doors leading out to the private balcony overlooking the landscaped gardens and swimming pools. There is a children's playground and crazy golf course at the nearby clubhouse.

The resort is very easy to find, as it is located close to the Globe Roundabout in Albufeira, near to many restaurants and within walking distance of the beach, the Strip and the Old Town. There are many golf courses within a short distance, and the Waterparks are 20-30 minutes away! Bus stop close to complex, taxis easily available & it's easy to arrange coach outings to water parks or to tour the interesting villages, markets and places of interest in the surrounding area. Lots of water sports, quad biking, jeep safaris & diving also readily available. If you like an active holiday there is plenty of choice, yet if you want to laze around this quiet location is perfect too!

About Tracy Gargan

We are a husband and wife with adult children, who first visited Portugal on honeymoon. Since then we have often visited Portugal and decided a few years ago to purchase a holiday home there, as it has so much to offer all age groups and interests, with glorious weather practically all year round. Since then we have made friends in the area, and really enjoy both family holidays and quieter holidays as a couple.

Tracy Gargan purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Tracy Gargan chose Montechoro

We bought this apartment because of its location- quite private, yet only a short walk to the Strip, varied restaurants and many activities in the surrounding area. The apartment is very secure, well equipped and so spacious it suits our family get-togethers. We love this area because it suits all age groups, it's a year round location & only a short flight away!

What makes this apartment unique

Only a short transfer from Faro airport the area around Albufeira has so much to offer-diving at many off shore sites, several water parks nearby, many marvellous golf courses, local markets, historic buildings, not to mention so many beautiful beaches, in fact something for everyone! If you want to relax you can laze by the pool, in pleasant gardens, dine on the balcony or just watch your favourite TV programme - why not?

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a marvellous holiday at this wonderful apartment. Great location, so central, with lots to see and do in the area. Andrew.

Terrific apartment for a family holiday, so well-equipped and so safe.The children especially enjoyed the swimming pool. Block 40 is so convenient too. Really enjoyed this area and will definitely be back. Minnie.

This was a great place to relax, as it's so private, yet close to the Strip with its restaurants & activities.We can't wait to return to this apartment. No wonder this complex is No.1 on Trip Advisor. Enjoyed the diving too. Mark.

Three weeks without a working T V. Dimly lit bathroom due to faulty fittings. Position of apartment good but quite basic. Vastly overpriced compared with what others had paid.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that your holiday did not meet expectations, though we have never had issues before. Regarding the tv we were dependent on the availability of the engineer & he came as soon as possible. This is a new system installed in April this year. No-one else reported having issues with it. In the second bathroom the lightbulb was changed promptly but one needed a new transformer which was not immediately available.
