About the neighbourhood
The apartment complex is perfectly situated overlooking the Old Town area, while it benefits from being away from the over-populated tourist areas, its still just a few minutes walk from the Old Town, which has escalator access down to the fisherman’s beach and square, where regular free concerts are staged throughout the summer months. Concerts such and orchestral recitals can also be enjoyed sipping a cool evening drink from the balcony of your apartment.

The Albufeira marina is a 30-minute gentle stroll from the apartment where boat trips can be booked for visits to the coastal caves, deep-sea fishing, diving and snorkelling or a relaxing day long coastal boat trip with a BBQ lunch on a secluded beach. Concerts are also held at the marina during the high season.
