About the property

Apartment in Albufeira, Central Algarve, Portugal: Quiet Location Just 5 Mins Walk To Shop, Bar And Café, And 20 Mins To Beach, Marina And Old Town

Spacious 1-bedroom duplex apartment with sea views, sleeps 4. Cot and high chair hire available. Private parking. AC in bedroom, heaters in all rooms. Free wifi. Modern, fully-equipped kitchen leads onto open-plan living area with DVD and CD players, and new 27" flat-screen TV receiving a wide range of English and other language channels. Terrace overlooks the gardens. Upstairs is a large balcony with panoramic sea views, family bathroom, and twin bedroom with safe, Juliet balcony and sea view. The lovely low-rise complex of 91 apartments has a reception (open 24 hours in season) with currency exchange and details of excursions. Lovely gardens, pool with children's area, tennis courts and café (open 10:00-18:30 from Easter to end of September) make it great for children of all ages. Ideal for relaxing away from it all, yet just 12 mins walk downhill to the lively old town with its many shops, bars, cafés and restaurants, the Fishermen's Beach or the Marina. Other nearby attractions include Salgados golf course, waterparks and Zoomarine, and the famous 'Strip' of Albufeira new town with its buzzing night life and range of eating places. Local circular bus stops at the foot of the hill, but a taxi will only cost around €5 to the old town and €6 to the Strip.

About Mrs Anne Francis

I live in England and am a semi-retired, self-employed consultant with two adult sons and three grandsons. Now settled in Yorkshire after moving around the country for several years. I have 3 years' experience of sharing my home with paying guests, and 8 of letting a holiday cottage in the UK. I'm now excited to be letting an apartment in Albufeira. My aim has always been for guests to feel welcome and at home, and to enjoy their stays as much as I do.

Mrs Anne Francis purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Mrs Anne Francis chose Algarve

I fell in love with the Algarve on my first visit in 2006 and was drawn back 5 times before having the opportunity to put in an offer for my very own holiday apartment in December 2014. For me this is primarily a winter sun getaway, but I hope you will also find it a comfortable, relaxing and scenic base at any time of year. Enjoy the laid-back pace of life and local cuisine. The people are friendly and English is widely spoken. Do explore not only the coastal resorts with their sandy beaches and amazing caves and rock formations, but also inland and mountain towns and villages with their olive groves, citrus orchards, and cork and pine plantations. The beauties of creation and the history of civilisations combine to make the Algarve an exceptional and unforgettable destination.

What makes this apartment unique

I chose Windmill Hill because it is a pretty, low-rise development in a quiet location yet still only a short walk to shops, eating places and beaches. Local buses and cheap taxis make getting further afield easy, too, and the site has free parking. I love the white buildings with their blue shutters, the white cobbled walkways, the beautifully maintained gardens, the large pool, the landmark windmill and the panoramic sea, town and country views. The reception and café are useful facilities. Whether you're returning from a family day on the beach; retail therapy at the markets, shops and malls; excursions as far away as Lisbon to the north or across the Spanish border to Seville; or making the most of the vibrant night life, the apartment provides a tranquil, restoring haven.
