We have just returned from our second visit to this apartment and it was every bit as good as last year. The owner couldn't have been more helpful and every part of the stay went smoothly from getting picked up on our arrival to being dropped back off at the airport. Booking the apartment and arranging the transfers was really simple and any questions we had were dealt with straight away. The apartment is modern,spacious and spotlessly clean and is equipped to a very high standard with everything you will need for your stay. The balcony at the front is ideal for chilling out at the end of the day with great views of the sunset. The complex is situated about a ten minute stroll from the many nice restaurants and bars in old town with the beach a couple of minutes further on. The marina is also about fifteen minutes away on foot. We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone and we are already looking to book up for next year.
Encosta Da Orada
This apartment is modern and clean and located up the hill from the Old Town in a secure complex. The owner was very helpful during the booking process and can also arrange airport transfers if required. The couple that manage the apartment for the owner are also very helpful and when required responded quickly to anything that was required during our stay. Towels and bedding are changed if staying longer than a week.
Large selection of restaurants available within 10 mins walk to the Old Town - nice curry house 5 mins walk down the hill which is ideal for take aways. All in all a very good choice and location.
Arrived at the property and found it to be as described - in fact it was much better. Very spacious and everything you would need. The view from both balconies was wonderful - the pool was great. A bit of a walk to the beach but well worth it. All in all would definitely book again.
From the Owner
“While on holiday in Portugal in 2006 we spontaneously visited a couple of building sites and absolutely loved the Encosta Da Orda complex. We bought off plan and haven't looked back since. Not only do we love the complex but we love the area as it is walking distance to a wide variety of bars, restaurants, and beautiful beeches. The location of the apartment is ideal as you can go into Albufeira Old Town for a more lively night out or down to Albufeira Marina for a quite meal and drink. The apartment is only 30 minutes from Faro airport and there are a number of golf courses and water parks a short journey away.”
