About the property

Luxury one bedroom apartment located in secluded gated location on the beach front

This gated condominium is perfectly located on the headland of Albuferia within 5 minutes walk to the bustling night-life of "The Strip", and for those looking for a quieter location, the cobbled streets of the "Old Town" is just 15 minutes down the sandy shores. Located in the heart of the Algarve perfect for golfers looking to play some of the worlds best courses, or those who simply want to find a home from home to relax and unwind.

Perfect apartment, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Perfect apartment with a beautiful view. Very nice decorated with quality furniture and devices. The chairs on the balcony are perfect relax / loungechairs to have a drink in the sun. There is also a Miele laundrymachine and dryer. And if you want to go to the beach, there are beachtowels and even sunhats. Everything is more than perfect. Safe and quiet area. Highly reccomended.

Spacious and luxury

  • 5 of 5

Spacious and luxurious apartment in a quiet part of albufeira but easily in reach of the old town or the lively strip.

we booked for 9 Nights and really should of stayed 14

we arrived at at around 8pm after driving up from faro and was met by Teresa who showed us around Apartment , we were amazed by the views over looking th sea towards Villamoura and that was at night ,it was even more spectacular in the morning watching the sun rise over villamoura .

Every thing is provided (even sun hats )

the short walk to old town on the beach is all flat and mostly with board walk 10 mins strolling is easy .

The pool was beautiful and well clean , and sun beds in abundance ,lovely and quiet , a short walk to the beach through the back gate brings you to a beach restaurant for afternoon snack and beer when it got too hot .

We will be returning in June with My Daughter and Grandson who will love the Quinta da Barracuda

A very quick and easy booking Process also made the holiday

Thanks Stephen and Teresa see you June

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 10 nights. The apartment is excellent. It has all you need for a very comfortable holiday.

Its very well equipped and extremely clean and tidy. It does benefit from a dishwasher and a tumble dryer which is not mentioned, It also has a hairdryer in the bathroom. The Balcony has great views and the joy of morning sun till early afternoon, This sitting on very comfortable outside furniture.

The bed is 5 star - never slept in a bed on holiday as comfortable. Linen was exceptional and the bed was a massive king size, Pool area was very clean and tidy with good sun beds. Little bar which is called Chili Pepper is next door which served great meals. Few other bars close by and the strip is far enough you don't hear it. Takes 6-7 minutes to walk to. There is a lovely little beach in walking distance and a great little bar to soak in the surroundings

We would recommend this apartment with no hesitation

Hime away from home

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted at the airport by private transfer. This was organised by the owner for us and was a good price for a return. Quick transfer. The aprtment approach was excelent and was secure. Far enoigh from the strip but close enough if you wanted to go. The location is great for everything. We visited zoo marine,algarve shopping and vilamora by transport with small cost. Love the old town near by and the beaches were lovely. My 2 year old felt at home here and all facilities were high standard. Would visit again without hesitation.

Fantastic Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a week in this apartment - Fabulous in every sense of the word! Airport pick up was very pleasant and was waiting on us, meet and greet also extremely helpful and friendly. The apartment itself was faultless, spotlessly clean and freshly decorated to a very high standard. The kingsize bed was an added bonus and very comfortable. Added extras such as toiletries in the bathroom and detergent etc in kitchen were a nice touch. However probably the best part of it for us was the balcony views which could be enjoyed on the luxurious furniture, views over to Vilamoura in one direction and the strip and old town in the other. The location was perfect with the strip and old town both being within walking distance yet far enough away so as not to be disturbed by any noise. The pool area was above ground level and therefore views of the ocean and oldtown were beautiful with no shortage of sun loungers. The beach is a few minutes walk from the back gate of the resort and the old town is only a 10 minute walk from there or in the other direction there are lovely cliff top walks. Plenty of lovely restaurants to suit all budgets but Omanjar is definitely worth a visit even if there is a wait on the table. Definitely plan to return!!
