Anne and I are from County Tyrone in N. Ireland. We first came to Portugal over 25 years ago and fell in love with this beautiful sunny part of the world. We like to spend as much time as possible here enjoying the lifestyle and trying to play golf.

A few years ago we acquired 2 X 2 bed apartments in this outstanding complex in Corcovada very central to everything.

We have put a lot of thought and effort into making these apartments very comfortable for the enjoyment of our guests - a 'home from home in the sunshine' (whatever the season). We hope you agree!

Guestbook comments from the manager

“Fabulous apartment with great views and all home comforts”

5 out of 5

We chose this apartment because it looked nice on the internet and the reviews were good, and everything was as it should be. Fabulous furniture, very very clean, The beds were SO COMFY, just like ours at home, nice and new and spotlessly clean. Because we lowered the electric shutters at night, the room was lovely and dark and quiet. The lounge furniture was smart, very modern, very comfy and clean. Everything in the kitchen was great. A huge fridge freezer that was ultra efficient, a dishwasher, washing machine (with lots of programmes including fast wash), the tv with freeview was good. We were met by Dave & Joyce who were the keyholders. They live within 10 minutes of this apartment and were extremely friendly and helpful. The property can only be accessed through the electric gates, for security.


your apart. was perfect and definitely the best we have stayed in since holidaying in Portugal Kate 6/13

With over 3000 hours of sunshine you can enjoy the many glorious long sandy beaches in Albufeira. These golden shores with dramatic cliffs and rock formations make this area a wonderful destination both in summer and winter.

Many of the beaches have been awarded prestigious Blue Flags for their cleanliness. The nearest beach to the apartments is Santa Eulalia (approx 1km). It is a short walk away from apartment complex.


Faro is the nearest airport approx 35km away, 30-35 minutes drive. Car hire is available at the airport.

Airport pick ups can be arranged, if requested. Taxis are also available at the airport.

As the apartments are centrally located to many of the local attractions, car hire is not essential. If, however, you want to explore the Algarve further car hire is available at very reasonable rates. The local bus service is very efficient and reliable if you do not wish to drive.


Excellent location close to the Globe roundabout with easy access to the local beaches, attractions and world class golf courses.

The famous "Strip" with restaurants, bars, shops, 5 minute walk.

Bull ring 5 minute walk.

Beach 15 minute walk.

Nearest local golf course 10 minute drive.

Old Town/Marina 20 minute walk.

Algarve Shopping Centre with shops, restaurants cinemas, bowling 15 minute drive.

Vilamoura/Marina 15 minute drive.

Lisbon 2 hr drive by new motorway.

Further Details:

The town itself offers an interesting contrast with its two distinct areas known as The Old Town with Marina, cobbled streets and newly refurbished square, and the well known 'Strip' with its many shops, restaurants, bars, bull ring and vibrant night-life.

All types of holiday activities can be enjoyed including golf, water sports, horse riding, fishing, go karting and hill walking. For those who enjoy sightseeing there are many places of interest including museums in Faro, children will love the science museum.

Excellant Accomdation

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from this apartment with our young child (aged 2). The accommodation was excellent; very spacious with home from home amenities. Great location as restaurants and shops were all within walking distance, though taxis are so cheap we would sometimes take one at night if our child was tired. Would definitely recommend this apartment as it ticks all the boxes. Great pool very clean. Owner was lovely to deal with, couldn't be more helpful. Thanks for an extremely enjoyable and hassle free holiday! Will definitely return here for future holidays!

happy holidays

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time the apartment was great very clean good air con system to help keep us cool. The apartment had great facilities within to make everything very comfortable. The complex itself was lovely. good pool for the kids too. Once we got our bearings we had a great time as the transfer driver (very good on time and helpful) took us to the apartment a different way than the directions on the emails so were a bit lost on the first day.

We were met by Judy? on the first day as joyce was unavailable due to a family illness. She was waiting at the complex for us and gave us a run down of the apartment and lots of pointers which was great. Although 4 of us shared the one bedroom apartment because it is a good size it didn't feel cramped.

The area itself is quite quiet but you are only 5-10 mins from the top of the strip so ideal for everyone.

I would recommend the apartment to anyone with or without kids, but if your kid has a buggy make sure its up to the demands of the pavements which are hard work.

Exceptional property with everything you could ask for. Washing machine a godsend. Air conditioning in lounge and bedroom. A large fridge freezer that is actually ice cold which is unusual for a holiday home in Portugal. Bed mattresses of a very high quality. Settee bed in lounge with memory foam mattress topper available to use. Well equipped high quality kitchen. Spotlessly clean and received nothing but good service from Anne, the owner. Deposit returned within days of returning home. Balcony over looks swimming pool which although busy when we were there, there was never a problem in getting sun beds which were of a very high sturdy quality. There is also a very good quality parasol in the apartment which you can take down with you. Set in a quiet location at the edge of Albufeira with no through road so no passing traffic. Only 5 minutes or so walk to top of Strip and a decent size Intermarche supermarket near to Montechoro hotel. Other small local shops even closer including a newsagent and a few cafe bars. Giro bus stops at end of road, runs every 30 minutes dead on time. Takes you into old town and bus terminal. About £1 a trip. Car is not needed. Would highly recommend this property and location and would like to thank Anne and local contact Joyce for a fantastic holiday.
