Smart apartment in a nice complex

  • 5 of 5

Had a 3 night stay in this apartment, as a gap filler for a more extended holiday in the Algarve. Wasn't expecting too much given the very reasonable rate compared to hotels, but was pleasantly surprised. Smart, modern, comfortable and very secure, with the added benefit of being on the ground floor a few steps away from the pool. Allowed us to sunbathe in privacy on our own personal sunbeds, but let our son loose at the pool area. The complex is very new and idealy situated within walking distance of the strip (if thats your kind of thing). Couldn't have asked for more, and would consider renting again. A hassle free and perfect beginning to our holiday. Big thanks to the owners, and also to Terry who manages the apartment.

Lovely apartment, home from home.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived early evening to be met by Terry who showed us around. The apartments is lovely and clean and had everything you would need. We particularly enjoyed breakfast out on the patio enjoying the peaceful sunny mornings. The bedroom had lots of wardrobe and drawer space. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and would definitely stop their again when visiting Albufeira.

Very good location

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were so glad that we booked this fantastic apartment and at first we were unsure about being on the ground floor but thankfully it was SO secure and having a spacious patio was great to spend time on our own sun loungers but still close to the pool for a quick dip! The apartment is in a great location to hit the beaches, walk to the old town (25 mins walk) and about 5/6 mins walk to 'the strip'' where all the bars and restaurants are. The apartment has everything you need to give you that home away from home feel and there is also a TV with English channels but remember to take your sky card if you want to access more channels! You will not be disappointed if you stay here and Terry who manages the property is helpful and available if you need anything. We also used Yellow Fish Transfers to take us to and from the airport they were great, very helpful, spoke english and it was great to book and pay prior to our holiday.

There is a guest book in the apartment which gives you lots of advice of places to go and where to eat. Will definitely recommend this apartment to our friends and family.

The Algarve is a truly beautiful area with a climate as warm as the welcome you'll receive from its hospitable people. For fabulous beaches you need go no further than Albufeira. The closest beach to Parque da Corcovada is Praia d' Oura, approx 20 mins walk, Praia Sta Eulalia also approx 20 mins or 5 mins by car, however there is no shortage of stunning golden beaches and coves to be discovered all along the coastline.


Faro Airport is 37 km from Parque da Corcovada, for those not hiring a car, we can advise on airport transfers.


From Albufeira, Faro 40km, Lagos 45km, Portimao 35km, Tavira 60km, Vilamoura 22km and Lisbon 256km.

The complex is a short walk from many good local restaurants and bars. The 'Old Town' is well worth a visit, day or evening, for its vibrant atmosphere, choice of dining and beautiful location on Fisherman's Beach, it is approx 5 Euro by taxi or 30 mins walk from Corcovada.

Balaia Golf Resort & Village is the nearest golf course, approx 3km from Corcovada, many other courses within easy reach.
