About the property

Poolside Apartment in Parque da Corcovada, Albufeira, Portugal - Peaceful 5* Complex Within 5 Mins Walk Of Shops And Restaurants And 15 Mins From The Beech

Imagine dining al-fresco on a south-facing terrace, amidst tropical palms, pretty flowers and lush green grass, with the scent of herbs and murmur of the swimming pool drifting through the air. Then bathe in the heat of the Algarve sun or step off the terrace and plunge into the pool for a refreshing dip. Preparing food in the kitchen is a delight to the eye as you gaze directly onto the pool or look out from the little terrace adjoining it. Watch the world go by from the large terrace off both bedrooms and, when you have had enough of the sun, relax in the beautifully furnished and spacious comfort of this wonderful holiday apartment in Parque da Corcovada.

About Andrew and Rachel

We love travelling to the Algarve and bought this property as our own second home in the sunshine, with family who already have property on the complex. We are proud to boast a luxury home from home experience, only better weather! We work closely with a professional yet friendly management team, with many year's experience living in the Algarve and who are invaluable in looking after the property and ensure that we, and our guests, enjoy their stay and feel looked after. We have also forged great relationships with local shops and restaurateurs and can recommend lots of lovely places to eat, just ask when booking, we will be happy to provide you with literature on all local interests such as water parks, day trips and beaches.

Andrew and Rachel purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Andrew and Rachel chose Albufeira

We have been travelling to the Algarve for over 15 years and although we still enjoy visited other countries we always look forward to returning to Portugal. We bought this apartment in 2006 from new and have been letting since 2008. The reason we chose Parque da Corcovada and Albufeira was for its central location within the Algarve plus the apartments are perfectly positioned in Albufeira and within easy walking distance to all amenities. The ground floor location was chosen for their ease of access and especially suited to small families. A large south facing terrace with no small balconies. Terraces are fully equipped with their own sun beds, loungers, parasols and patio table and chairs. They also have the added advantage of small well maintained gardens.

What makes this apartment unique

When staying at our property you will benefit from a private complex with no club reps or distractions just luxurious accommodation in a quiet and well managed condominium. The complex has its own security, cleaning and gardening team and secure access. The apartment is fully equipped with everything you will need for a safe and relaxing holiday. Sun beds plus loungers, parasols, beach/pool toys for small children, DVD player with a collection of DVDs, a Nintendo Gamecube and a selection of books. By far the most visited area in Albufeira is 'the strip' this street has lots of bars and restaurants, is only a 5 mins walk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartments are amazing, absolute luxury and contain everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. O'Sullivan July 2012

Having stayed in this apartment before, we knew it would be excellent - P Wheelhouse Aug 2011

Thank you for a wonderful holiday. The whole family had a great time & we really appreciate the care given to us. We will definitely be back again. O Fahy - July 2011

Exceeded expectations. It was much bigger than we expected and far better equipped. We were talking about going again next year on the flight home, it was that good!!! G Holland June 2011

"We had stayed at the complex previously so knew the excellent standard of the apartments.

The complex itself is very safe with lovely pools, plenty of sun loungers and within easy walking distance to The Strip

Some great restaurants around - we revisited some from our last visit and also found some new ones. Would definitely return again." - S Baxter - July 2011

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was stunning. Photos didn't do it justice, the place was so much bigger and finished to a very high standard.

It was great to walk out and straight into the pool. The kids loved it, no going up and down lifts carrying towels and inflatables etc.

Andrew was very helpful and was always at the end of the phone. All in all we had a great holiday. I would highly recommend this apartment.

Also the taxi company Andrew recommended (yellow fish) were very good. My wife left her cardigan in the cab and the driver drove back with it.

Fab family hols - home from home!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic apartment. Has everything you need for a home from home experience. The apartment was really spacious and well maintained. Everything was in good working condition. Andy couldn't have been more helpful in the run up to our break.

The location is spot on. Nice terrace to sit if you don't want to group around the pool. Pool area never had an issue securing a sunbed. So close, nice to pop back in to grab a drink! Close to restaurants and bars.

Would recommend and may even stay there again!
