About Julie Clapham

My sister and I love the Algarve. Our Mum has lived here for nearly 30 years and we have visited many, many times. My Mum has a number of stray animals (9 dogs and 9 cats) so we decided it would be easier to buy apartments of our own nearby. We like our holidays near a beach, interesting things to see, lovely walks to see the local landscape, good markets and local shopping. We like to have places where we can eat local food and drink within a few minutes walking distance so that there is no need to drive - then there is no need to draw the short straw and miss out on the local wines.

Julie Clapham purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Julie Clapham chose Algarve

We love the area because it is just away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist area of Albufeira but close enough to walk to all the activity if you want. It is right in the old town so we can walk to the beach (got masses of lovely shells in Jan), to the marina, masses of restaurants and cafes and shops in a couple of minutes and the local beaches are so wide and stretch far into the distance. It is easy to get to, centrally located on the Algarve and has something going on most of the time in an every day normal Portuguese town. There is a lot to see at most times of the year from almond blossom in the spring to seeing the oranges picked during the picking seasons and there are always Festas and the carnivals in Feb\March.

Perfect location, stress free

  • 4 of 5

We had never been to Portugal so weren't sure what to expect, organised airport pickup through Julie which was so easy and hassle free. Perfect location to walk to a couple of beaches (so helpful to have the beach towels and parasol available for this- thanks Julie). Also walking distance from marina and right in Old town. Very quiet at night, beds comfortable for 4 adults, apartment spotless and good shower. Literally the only thing that could be any better is more pillows! We were able to leave bags in reception and use the pool/sunbathing area for a while before flight. Brilliant apartment, thanks.

Very well equipped apartment in wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Just enjoyed a lovely week in this apartment, which was very well equipped, clean, everything you need for an great holiday.

Transfers were arranged by the owner, which worked perfectly and we were greeted by Sara on arrival at the apartment, who showed us around. The complex reception staff were all very friendly and informative. We made good use of the swimming pool on site, which never got busy.

Fantastic location, 5 minute walk to the beach and numerous restaurants, would highly recommend Shalom II for a lovely meal.

Zoomarine make a good day out.

Great base for Albufiera

  • 4 of 5

the appartments provided a great base for us as a 5 min walk to the beach and town, very well equipped kitchen and spacious rooms. Good size bathroom and really appreciated the selection of towels provided. Tthe property was immaculate and modern. The day of arrival was very smooth as taxis organised by the owner and we were greeted with a friendly welcome at the apartment. Albufiera was great for the whole family, the kids loved the water sports and facilities on the beach. we loved the fantastic range of restaurants! We completed 4 trips including 2 water parks , caves and dolphin searching which were all great fun and easy to arrange. I would most definitely recommend this apartment and Albufiera old town. My only criticism would be that the balcony was too small, however plenty of outdoor seating area on the terrace.

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Having stayed in one of Julie's one bedroom apartments in September 2014 (Casa Azul) with my husband, we returned this July with our 16 year old son to Casa Laranja. The location of the Apartment is perfect for the beach, which offers various watersports (a great hit with my son!) and the bars and restaurants, both just a few minutes walk down the winding cobbled streets. Our stay was for 10 days and again we didn't hire a car as there really is no need, unless perhaps you wanted to explore further along the coast or mountains, which we have done in the past. The apartment is clean, bright and well equipped although (you know I am going to mention this Julie!) it would be fantastic if there was a washing machine! We like the location as it is quiet, but everything is within easy reach. There is a handy shop just down the hill for bread and other provisions. Also two restaurants at the bottom of the hill both with terraces overlooking the beach. 'The Beach Basket' is our favourite! We were met at the airport by taxi arranged by the owner and greeted at the property by Terry who showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment. Home from home! We will definitely be returning next year - if not before! Thank you once again Julie.

Location, location, location

  • 4 of 5

This apartment turned out to be very well located for all our needs. Just a few minutes from both the beach and the square. It is at the top of a hill but nothing too daunting. The pool area was quiet and restful and we had Merlins bar just across the road. There were loads of towels and essentials when we arrived. The balcony is small and there is not a great view but otherwise the apartment has everything you would need for a relaxing holiday. Would like to go back in the morning!!

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Spent 7 nights here in September 2014. Great apartment with everything you could possibly need. Lovely quiet pool area and close enough to some lovely restaurants and bars . No noise on an evening ensures a good nights sleep.

This is the second time we have stayed at Bay View and will definitely return.
