Perfectly located, modern holiday apartment with lovely quiet pool area.

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased with our choice of holiday flat.

The flat has every thing you need to have relaxing holiday, fully equipped kitchen, bright living area, modern bathroom and large bedroom with ample storage and very big bed. Air con in lounge and bedroom.

The balcony gets the morning to mid day sun, with two sets of seating, one set cosy for relaxing & reading, 2nd for having breakfast or light lunch with your wine !

There is a lovely quiet pool area with plenty of sun loungers.

A 5minute walk out of the back gate, you come out on to fantastic beach, which has seated bar for drinks & snacks.

10 minute stroll up the road you have the strip with plentiful bars & restaurants, worth checking just off main road.

Finally a well organised pick up & drop off airport taxi.

Thank you for a enjoyable holiday.

fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

A lovely apartment with high quality fixtures and fittings, the shower was great, east facing to avoid late pm sun kept the rooms cool, lovely pool with comfortable loungers.

Negative points!!!! Crockery poor, dinner plates did not fit into dishwasher which may explain why they were mouldy. they did not fit into microwave either. Back gate key lets you out but not in. Extra key would have been useful as the only way in was via the electric gates, so we had to be together on every excursion. Owner asked to organise transfer was not done on arrival, 50.00 euro taxi fare.

Over all a good break in a nice complex close enough to activities but not noisy.

Spring break

  • 5 of 5

An excellent apartment. Very clean with all the 'mod cons' and asuperb pool area. Less than 5 mins. to the strip it is definitely a good 15 min walk to the olde town. Everything you need is close to hand- supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and bars. From the intial booking, our pickup at the airport, the introduction to the complex by the excellent Theresa and our return to the airport everything was grand.The complex is very safe and easy to relax in. Thanks again Steve.

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
