The complex is located on a hill and has spectacular views across Albufeira, the sea and surrounding hills. It is only 10 minutes walk from vibrant Albufeira Old Town and beaches and a similar distance from the new Albufeira Marina; ideally located for those who like to be within easy walking distance of excellent facilities, while still enjoying a relaxing holiday away from it all. The apartment has 3 terraces: There is a South facing terrace between the ground floor and first floor to the front of the house with magnificent sea views and views over Albufeira. This is an amazing sun trap as it gets the sun all day. It has 2 sun recliners and side tables. The second terrace is on the top floor off the master bedroom and provides views over the landscaped gardens, pool and windmill and views over Albufeira beyond. Additionally, there is a good sized private patio on the ground floor off the lounge giving access to the beautiful gardens, shared pool with separate shower and toilet facilities and the poolside bar/restaurant. This has table and seating for 4 and has a built in barbeque. You will be spoilt for choice of terraces on which to sunbathe, enjoy al fresco dining, take in the stunning views all round or simply watch the sun go down while enjoying a glass of local wine. The apartment offers everything you need for a self-catering base to explore the Algarve; a real home from home. It is on two floors, with no apartments above or below, and therefore has the feel of a townhouse. Living areas are open plan and spacious. The kitchen/ dining area was refurbished in April 2015 with new fitted units and new appliances and is fully equipped with electric oven, hob, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, kettle, toaster, iron and has a dining table seating four. The large lounge has patio doors leading out to the patio. It has two double leather sofabeds, a small put u up single bed and an armchair and coffee table, together with 40” Flat screen SMART TV, some UK Channels, Free WIFI, iphone speaker , DVD and CD player. In the recently refurbished separate bathroom, there is a separate shower cubicle, as well as a shower over the bath, and WC and wash basin (with large mirror over vanity unit), and there is also a downstairs cloakroom. There are ample built-in wardrobes (with safe inside) in the Master bedroom, together with a dressing table, chair and mirror, as well as the double bed and bedside tables. Lounge and bedroom are fully air conditioned/ heated. The well-established, landscaped gardens are beautifully maintained, with plenty of mature palm trees, fruit trees and shrubs; the complex is awash with colour for most of the year. The Windmill has been lovingly restored and sits alongside the swimming pool and bar/restaurant where a little music in the background is the perfect accompaniment to a light meal or refreshing cool drink.

Interaction with guests
All our guests are met at the apartment by our (British) Keyholder - she has a wealth of local knowledge and is very helpful. Guests are provided with her contact details (in case of emergency). There is also a Guest Information bookle to help familiarise you with the apartment. The Keyholder can arrange transfers from Faro airport for a total of €70 return (for up to 4 people) - this service can be requested on the Apartment Reservation Form that we send to guests. Similarly an ‘Arrival Pack’ can be arranged for €20.00 – again, this can be requested on our Apartment Reservation Form (there are supermarkets and shops nearby though, as well as a small store at the Windmill Hill Café, and also a variety of pubs, bars and restaurants).

About the neighbourhood
Being in quite a central position in the Algarve, Albufeira is an excellent base to explore the whole region. It is only about an hour and half's drive from both the nature reserves on the furthest Eastern point on the boundary with Spain and the furthest Western point of the Algarve with its rugged Atlantic coastline. Beautiful lakes and hills are within a one hour drive to the North, while to the East and West are numerous stretches of stunning white-sandy award winning beaches surrounded by beautiful cliffs and rugged coves. Albufeira itself has two beaches: the golden sands of the Town Beach with bars, restaurants and water sports, reached via a tunnel through the cliff side, and Fishermen's Beach with its wide sandy shore often lined with brightly painted fishing boats. It is a vibra...
