About the property

Apartment in Albufeira, Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location, 300 Metres To The Beach

This is a very spacious luxury apartment in a quite area but yet is 5 minutes walk from the famous 'Strip' with bars, restaurants, local shops (for excursions bookings) and entertainment. Public transport and Taxi rank is a 5 minutes walk. The old town nearby with its cobbled streets provides lots of traditional restaurants and bars with a relaxed atmosphere. The apartment overlooks the pool and has a seaview.

About Emer

We are a family that bought in the Algarve for a number of reasons. Firstly; the flights are only a few hours from home. Secondly; the weather is perfect and the food is delicious. And thirdly; and most importantly the people are very friendly. We have been going to Portugal for the last 12 years and never tire of it. Albufeira is the perfect holiday destination for anyone who likes the sun or to relax on the many beautiful beaches (just 3 minutes away). Enjoys the food as the restaurants are second to none. It's also a great place for golfers as the choice of courses are endless. Those with children will find it an easy holiday with so much to do that they won't be bored. We have young children and find that 2 weeks is never long enough! The quality time is priceless.

Why Emer chose Algarve

It's all about Location! Everything needed for the perfect holiday is within walking distance; the beautiful golden beaches, the wide choice of fabulous friendly restaurants, the buzzing bars and clubs, the relaxed cafe's and the local shops.

You can stroll down to the beach just (3 minutes), sit in one of the cafe/restaurants and enjoy the sound and views of the sea. You can walk the beach (20 minute stroll) to the old town with family, friends or by yourself.

This apartment and its location is perfect for couples, friends or a family holiday.

What makes this apartment unique

No car is needed!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just back in the door, we just felt we had to email you to thank you ever so much for the use of your wonderful apartment. It was perfect for every aspect of our holiday. The apartment itself was ideally located in the complex for us to supervise our children. Our boys really had a ball for the week. My wife commented that it had been the best accommodation we have had since we started coming to Portugal. The walk to the beach was perfect distance, the complex was quiet at night which suited us with the two boys. Many thanks once again Brian and Emma.

Hi Emer, Just wanted to send a mail to say we really enjoyed the holiday! Apartment is perfect, it had everything we needed and is in an ideal location.

We made a few visits to the Sizzling Stone restaurant, past Wild and CO, great food every time. Old town was great, even the Strip was nice if you were there early. Horrible being back to normal, even though we had two week, it flew! But there's always next year. I'll be in touch ND.

Perfect placement apartment for everything.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the apartment as it was in a pefect location for the old and new Town.

The beautiful beach was a 5 minutes walk away.

Inside the apartment it had everything that you would need for a lovely stress free holiday.

The pool area was lovely with multi national occupants.

We would stay again.
