About A.H. Bannink

We are Bertus and Ingrid Bannink.

We have visit Portugal many times, especially the Algarve with his beautiful coast. We have found a house in an upmarket area of Albufeira, quiet but lovely and 10 minutes walking from the centre of Albufeira Old Town with his bars, restaurants, artists and sea and beach. We hope that you will enjoy your holiday as we do.

Kind regards Bertus en Ingrid.

A.H. Bannink purchased this apartment in 2012

We had a lovely time staying in this great accommodation. Hardly any noise at night, great views overlooking the coastline, pool and snack bar spot on. Loads of places to explore within short walking distances. The owners were very helpful with the booking. A great holiday overall.

Wonderful Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a fantastic 9 nights in this great apartment and we are delighted after our stay. The property is immaculate and beautifully set out. The small resort complex is quiet and ideally located with a short walk to old town Albufeira. Our three children (13, 10 and 6 years) enjoyed the pool immensely, we walked to the local beach (10 mins away) and there are some tremendous beaches (San Rafael, Coelha, Castelo and Espirito) that you can access with only a short drive from here if you have a car. We'd highly recommend a stay here and would be happy to return. The owners provide brilliant communication and customer service.

Super apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week with my wife and 3 small girls aged 9 to 3 in June 2015. Wonderfully kept and comfortable apartment. Everything you need for a self catering holiday. Maid service as promised. Didn't find hill from old town too bad. Only €6 for taxi or 15 min leisurely walk. Lovely pool with plenty of sun beds and kids section to pool. Very quite resort with few cars which is good when you have kids around. Thanks again Berthus and Ingrid. Tom, Ireland.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Faro airport at 40 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : at 300 Metres Nearest Golf : at 10 Kilometres Nearest Train : Ferreiras at 5 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A22 at 10 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Old city of Albufeira at 600 Metres


Albufeira has 2 beaches: the golden sands of the Town Beach with bars, restaurants and water sports, reached via a tunnel through the cliff side, and Fisher men's Beach with its wide sandy shore often lined with brightly painted fishing boats. Within a short drive there are numerous other beaches varying from the sandy coves at Sao Rafael to the long stretches of golden sand at Gale, Praia Grande (nr Pera) and Falesia. For nature lovers, Salgados is the perfect beach to unwind only 20 mins away.


Fly to Faro Airport which is served by a number of budget airlines from the UK. The apartment is situated to the west of Albufeira just above the old town. It is approx 46km from the airport. Taxi fare is about 35 Euro and the travel time around 40 minutes. Car hire, although not essential, is readily available at Faro airport.


Windmill Hill is just an 8 to 10 mins walk to the old town of Albufeira and a short distance to the new marina. A short taxi ride takes you to the vibrant strip area and the Algarve shopping complex. Albufeira is one of the Algarve’s most popular resorts but retains its distinctive Portuguese character. The historic town is particularly pretty with its narrow cobbled streets lined with whitewashed houses, restaurants and shops. The central square is a good place to sit and watch the world go by.

Further Details:

The Algarve is famous for its excellent year round climate, sandy beaches and wonderful golf courses. As one of Europe's top holiday destinations it does provide something for everyone from the busy water parks and main beaches to more secluded coves and inland gems such as the Sierra De Monchique hills and the historic town of Silves, the ancient capital. Albufeira is one of the Algarve's most popular resorts. The old town, with its narrow cobbled streets and whitewashed houses, retains a distinctive Portuguese character. It has an abundance of restaurants serving both local and international cuisine.
