This luxurious and well equipped apartment is 1.5 miles (2KM) from the outskirts of Albufeira. It is a five minute walk away from regular buses and an also from an excellent local Intermarche Supermarket. There are excellent eateries & snack bars five minutes away. We stayed for the best part of three months. We didn't have a car. The bus fare to Albufeira Centre was about 3 Euros each but a taxi was only about 5 Euros. There was a lift in the apartment which is situated on the first floor. It has a large balcony and overlooks the swimming pool and gets the sun early in the morning. The managers, Paul and Maggie were very helpful. Although the weather was very cold they made sure we were warm and comfortable.
