About the Owner

We are both English in our early 50s and we came to live in the Algarve from the North East of England at the end of 2007. We have owned the apartment since 2004 and it was initially our holiday getaway before we bought our permanent home in Silves. As we live a short drive away from Albufeira we enjoy providing a personal service to our guests and over the last few years have been lucky enough to make new friends who now come back to the Algarve on a regular basis to see us.

Lynn & Martin are a pretty very hospitable couple. They waited for us in the hall until we arrived later because of our flight. The apartment is nice and clean and they provide to everything you need. It is a perfect location to visit places near there, very near to the most beautiful Algarve's attractions, peaceful and well served of shops, markets and restaurants. If we will come back in Algarve we will chose you again, for sure!

From the Owner

We bought the apartment to get away from the UK weather and of course because we enjoyed coming to the Algarve so much. It is in a quiet area but it is only minutes away from the busier parts of Albufeira and was an ideal location for us.

Activity and Interests


Nearest beach is Praia da Oura which is 10 mins walk or 5 mins on the bus/taxi and there is a regular bus service (Giro) to the Old Town for the more popular Fishermens Beach from outside the apartment complex every 30 minutes.


Nearest airport is Faro Airport which is 40km from Albufeira. Car hire is not essential as public transport is readily available within Albufeira and most amenities are within walking distance.

Further Details:

Available throughout the Algarve is golf, water sports, boat trips, horse riding, cycling, fishing, water parks, zoos and many historical places of interest. Information available on all activities and places of interest from reception.
