About the property

Apartment in Albufeira, Algarve, Portugal - On a Secure Complex with Communal Pool

This excellently finished and well equipped ground floor apartment is situated on a secure complex with tended grounds and ample gated parking areas. Free WiFi connection & English Channel TV. There are two communal pools, one for adults and one for children, which catch the sun all day and also have changing and showering facilities all within a few steps from the apartment door. Nearest supermarket 2 min walk. Enjoy breakfast on the large sun-trap patio that leads onto a safe tended lawn, perfect for the young ones to play on while you get down to the important business of doing nothing in particular! This apartment is handily placed to explore the glorious Algarve. It is within easy walking distance from Albufiera's 'old town' with its many family friendly and more intimate bars and restaurants. The town square is an ideal place to while away your time with a cool drink and a spot of 'people watching'. At night the old town comes alive. It is also nearby to many major golf courses and 5mins walk to the main bus station.

Fantastic place, fantastic people.

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, every thing you need in a holiday apartment.

We did not book this through owner s d irect because of the extra charge they put on top of the price.

That meant we had a faultless and smooth experience from start to finish.

Just returned from the apartment. What a fabulous home from home it is. We loved our stay, everything you could possible need was provided for and at no point did we say if only we had that.. Its a great place to stay, comfortable, well equipped, the outside area is great, plenty of room to eat, relax, sunbathe and excellent furniture to do all these things..

The beds are great and comfy, great bathroom facilities, excellent shower and plenty of hot water, never ran out. . The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook a full meal. Lots of crockery and equipment, plastic stuff for outside or take to the beach. Excellent air conditioning and so quiet but totally efficient.Security well covered, shutters, good locks and an alarm.

Excellent UK TV all the main channels which we loved as we are love to keep upto date with the news.

For those essential supplies our recommendation would be Lidl. Easy to get to with a car just 5 minutes, but easily walkable there and then taxi back.. We loved the walk to the old town and we are 62 and 59 but would always taxi back or bus which is a little cheaper from top of the escalators 1.40 euro's each. The bus stops are 5-10 minutes walk from the apartment.

We enjoyed the peace away from the town but found getting there no problem. The taxis are 5 euros door to old town and readily available .

A brilliant place to stay and would easily rate as five star and more with no negatives whatsoever.

Thank you Paul and Sandra for use of your lovely home. Without a doubt if we return to Albufiera in the future we will be definately returning to your place.

Kind regards

Deborah and Brian

A well equiped and wonderfully located apartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for 2 weeks at the end of June 2016. It is located at "the top end of town" in a lovely complex which gives you a very quiet and peaceful holiday. The site has an excellent swimming pool and large sunbathing area just a very short stroll from the apartment.

The apartment itself is at the end of a small row of apartments and there is ample parking right outside. The rooms are very spacious and the furnishings are of a high standard. The bed offers a good nights sleep and there is ample space for all your clothes. The bathroom is of a good size with an efficient shower over the bath.

The kitchen is big enough and well equipped with a very good fridge/freezer. You could easily cook a big meal for 8 in the kitchen (but why would you want to!!)

The lounge is of a very good size with a good dining table and seating. We were provided with excellent UKTV and Radio and also a very good Wi-Fi system.

The terracing is of a good size and leads onto a lovely grassed area for you to expand upon. The outside furnishings are very good and plentiful.

The apartment is a fair stroll down hill to the Centre and if you wish to follow the trend you can get a taxi back. They are plentiful and popular. We hired a car so we drove down to the main parking area in the centre and then a 10 minute stroll down to the Old Town via the escalator.

After the first week the apartment was serviced by a very charming Portuguese gentleman which made us feel a little special.

We have no hesitation in fully recommending this excellent apartment for a holiday. The owners are very friendly and amenable and were very good to us to make sure that we had a lovely holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind words, you were the perfect guests. We do try to make our apartment a home from home and your review shows us we are on the right tracks. There is also a Girobus which stops just outside the apartment every 30 minutes and will get you to the Old Town and beach in 10 minutes.
