About the Owner

Anne and I are from County Tyrone in N. Ireland. We first came to Portugal over 25 years ago and fell in love with this beautiful sunny part of the world. We like to spend as much time as possible here enjoying the lifestyle and trying to play golf.

A few years ago we acquired 2 X 2 bed apartments in this outstanding complex in Corcovada very central to everything.

We have put a lot of thought and effort into making these apartments very comfortable for the enjoyment of our guests - a 'home from home in the sunshine' (whatever the season). We hope you agree!

The most beautiful location and apartment we stayed in so close to every thing and so so peaceful and private yet in five minutes walk we were on the "Strip" we will be back.


“Absolutely stunning apartment!!!!”

What a fantastic apartment you've got there. We have had a brilliant time at Corcovada. Everything ran perfectly, from being picked up at the airport , to being greeted at Corcovada by Joy & Dave

Beautiful Apartment”

5 out of 5

We stayed in in October 2011 with 2 children ages 10 & 12, & from the time of booking until our departure it has to rate as one of the most stress free holidays we've ever had as a family. The apartment is beautiful, tastefully decorated and spotless, with all the mod cons & high standards you'd expect at home, but rarely get as part of a package holiday. The complex very secure and the location is excellent - near enough to walk to local restaurants, etc, The kids loved the pool area, & would have been happy to spend the entire holi

great apartment / great location

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a 2-wk stay & couldn't have wished for better accommodation. From start to finish all the arrangements were handled really well, from being picked up at the airport, all the info we needed for our stay to being dropped off again. The apartment was 1st class, very clean & spacious - home from home. We had a front patio that was literally 'a few feet' from the pool - never had any trouble getting a sun lounger. In the late afternoon when the pool was in the shade we had the sun out on the back patio until well into the evening & it was very private. Supermarkets were a short walk away & a 10-minute walk took you to the Strip. We had a fab holiday - I would definitely recommend this apartment, it was excellent. We will definitely be back!

Superbly located apartment

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our family holiday in this apartment. The apartment was beautiful, modern, clean, bright and fully equipped throughout. Fantastic big patio off from kitchen and another from the living room out onto the lawns. We have young children so the position on the ground floor was perfect for them to play out on the green area in front and for easy access down to the pools. There was a nice children's pool and main pool. The apartment is walking distance to the beach and there were plenty of restaurants/bars/shops nearby and the famous "Strip" was a 5 minute walk away. We will definitely return to this apartment and would highly recommend it.

Activity and Interests


With over 3000 hours of sunshine you can enjoy the many glorious long sandy beaches in Albufeira. These golden shores with dramatic cliffs and rock formations make this area a wonderful destination both in summer and winter.

Many of the beaches have been awarded prestigious Blue Flags for their cleanliness. The nearest beach to the apartments is Santa Eulalia (approx

1km). It is approx a 15 minute walk away from the complex.


Faro is the nearest airport approx 35km away, 35 minutes drive. Car hire is available at the airport.

Airport pick ups can be arranged, if requested. Taxis are also available at the airport.

As the apartments are centrally located to many of the local attractions, car hire is not essential. If, however, you want to explore the Algarve further car hire is available at very reasonable rates.

The local bus service is very efficient and reliable if you do not wish to drive.


The complex is an excellent location close to the Globe roundabout with easy access to beaches, water attractions, golf courses, nearby towns & villages.
