“We have been a week at home of Seamus and Frances. The experience has been very positive. The house is near the beach and close to the shops and bars, yet is in a quiet place. You can take a walk to get to the village. Albufeira can be a good base for exploring the Algarve. Dealing with Frances and Seamus was very nice.”
Frances's reviewsAs a host (2)
“We had some wonderful days at this very nice apartment near the centre but quiet enought to enjoy a marvellous balcony over the village. A very successful swap with such a nice couple that was a real pleasure to know. Hightly recommended.”
Where is it?
The location is first class. It is only 600 metres to Praia d'Oura, one of the many beautiful sandy beaches in this area of the Algarve, with watersports and beach bars. There are also spectacular cliff walks. A buzzing night life is only 4 minutes walk away. Old Albufeira with its cobbled white streets and historical culture is 20 minutes walk along the coast. Explore the Old Town with its array of shops and restaurants and famous wide sandy beaches, including the famous Fisherman's Cove. At night the Old Square comes alive as a venue for artists and entertainers. You will be spoilt for choice with great restaurants offering everything from traditional Portugese fare to carveries. Golfers find the Algarve a Paradise with its many courses, and the world famous Villamoura is only 30 minutes drive away. Public transport and a taxi rank are just outside the gates so a car is not necessary. This is a perfect place to either have a relaxing holiday in the sun and eat well, or use it as a base for exploring along the Algarve coast with its dozens of beautiful coastal towns and beaches. Our nearest airport is Faro, just over 30 mins drive away. Lisbon is a morning's drive, or why not take a tour to Fatima or accross the border - Seville?
