About Nick and Lisa Lake

We live in Cardiff and have 3 children and a pet Springer Ollie. We like to holiday as a family where there is plenty for everyone to do. We have been holidaying in Portugal since we fell in love with the Algarve 10 years ago. We particularly like the friendly nature of the Portuguese people. We have extensive knowledge of the area so will be able to answer any questions you have.

Nick and Lisa Lake purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Nick and Lisa Lake chose Albufeira

There is so much to do. Our apartment is in a traditional quiet beautiful Portuguese village called Ferreiras near Albufeira. It is minutes away from the fantastic Beaches, the local activity parks, and from Albufeira old town.

We chose this particular village, because of the high quality of the apartment and also because you have the piece and tranquility of Village life, with it's very local Cafe's and restaurants. We are only minutes away from everything else you could want from a holiday.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is very modern and spacious, the complex small, private and kept to a high standard. The quiet of the village but the closeness to the beaches and the hub of Albufeira. It really feels like you are in Portugal.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful week. The property was spacious and very modern and clean. The grounds and pool area were well maintained. There was so much to do we had a really fun packed break but were relay able to relax as well. Nick and Lisa were extremely helpful and made sure we were well looked after. We can't wait until next year.

Amazing apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my party had a great time in Portugal. The apartment was amazing, even better than we expected as the pictures don't do it justice.

The location was ideal and the residents were very friendly. If you want a nice chilled relaxing holiday this is definitely the place. We will be back next year.
