Privately owned spacious first floor apartment situated at the sought after front line location of the entire Sao Rafael complex in the Algarve with stunning sea view. The apartment offers the shortest walk to the two lovely beaches (both within 10 minutes). Sao Rafael beach was voted as Portugal’s best beach and the 4th best in Europe in 2009. The large swimming pool facility with a children pool is just a short walk from the accommodation through excellently kept matured gardens. The apartment is just 3km from the centre of old Albufeira town and the fisherman's beach. The wonderful sandy cove of Sao Rafael is just a five minute walk away. The new Marina is a short walk away and many boat trips dolphin watch or other trips can be made here. Then you can walk a little further into Albufeira old town or get a taxi for just 5 Euros! Local amenities including supermarket, bars and restaurants can be found within a 10 minute walk from the accommodation.
My name is Carolina and my family and I have been going to Sao Rafael resort for our summer holidays for the past 20 years. Sao Rafael has become a home away from home for us and when the opportunity arose, my parents could not resist and purchased an apartment within the Sao Rafael Resort. I manage the bookings for our apartment and I always will try to respond any enquiries as soon as I can.

We have been spending a portion of our summer holidays at Sao Rafael almost every year for the last 20 years.
We have enjoyed snorkelling from the beaches, the landscapes are dramatic and the sea view is stunning. The resort offers a peaceful environment for us to escape from our hectic city lives and yet only a short drive into the old town of Albufeira which is buzzing with activities in the summer months. There are many activities suitable for all ages and now I am able to share these experiences with my daughter and husband. One of the main attractions for us is that Sao Rafael had maintained a tranquil and peaceful family environment over the years and their careful architectural considerations to the landscape.
The apartment is only a short walk to local amenities, the deck chair and table offers a lovely setting for lunch and with the two sun loungers, the great lazy afternoon readings.
The apartment is spacious and has a relaxing feel and only a short walk to the beaches and the swimming pool which is perfect for us.
