About Elsa Sousa

My name is Elsa and we are a couple with 2 kids. We live near Lisbon and we love the Algarve.

When we need to relax, fantastic weather with sun and beaches ... we go to the Algarve.

Why Elsa Sousa chose Old Town

We love the Algarve because almost all year we have a long summer. The area and location of the apartment are fantastic.

For people coming by plane, it is easily accessible with Faro airport less than an hour's drive away.

The apartment itself is so well situated on Montramar building, on 3rd floor with lift.

Has a great balcony where you can view the sea and rest in sun loungers or even eat outside the apartment with an amazing view.

A LOVELY PLACE IN THE SUN

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week break at this lovely property. From the first time we contacted Elsa to the moment that she and Jose gave us such a warm welcome, the process was straightforward. The airport shuttle service organised by Elsa was smooth and hassle free. The apartment was spotless and had everything that we needed including the fabulous views along with the opportunity in the evening to hear the singers/music from the old town without it being intrusive. I really would recommend this property for your break in the sun.

Excellent apartment , superb location.

  • 4 of 5

Booking and airport transfers were excellent by owners of this property. Apartment had everything as described in listing and more, including Wi Fi.and air con. It was very clean and well maintained. We were met personally by the owner and given a lovely welcome gift, chocolates, fruit and water. King size bed with immaculate linen was much appreciated.

It was only 2 minutes to the beautiful Fishermans Beach but the fantastic balcony had sun all day.

A superb choice of restaurants and activities were right on our doorstep, including bars with live music.

'A little gem'.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was everything we were told it would be..and more.!! From first contact with Elsa,everything went smoothly. Jose met us at apartment and showed us around. It was beautifully furnished,and had every amenity to make it a home from home. From the fully equipped kitchen,right through the living room,bathroom and spacious bedroom,everything was superb.!! Then to go out on to the terrace,was amazing. The views,both day and night were superb.!! Overall it was a perfect holiday,looking forward to returning next year,and I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a lovely location in Albufeira. Thanks, Elsa and Jose.x
