Apartment overview - owner's description
This lovely sea-view 1 bed apartment is set amongst lush tropical gardens just a 5 minute stroll to the picture-perfect Arrifes beach! Due to strict building regulations along this unspoilt coastline, this apartment is about as close as you can legally be to Arrifes beach whilst still retaining the sea-view!
Now taking bookings for the first time for 2017, this apartment has been privately owned since new and has never before been rented. Improvements before renting will include new flat screen TV's with integral DVD/CD players in both the lounge and bedroom, new twin beds with good quality mattresses that can be integrated to form a Super King Size cw memory foam topper (so you dont' feel the join!), and a sofa bed in the lounge for single or double occupancy. There will be new curtains & bedding throughout for a more modern feel! A new children's cot-bed and highchair will also be available. WIFI will be installed.
A further walk of 5 minutes will take you to the beautiful Blue Flag Sao Rafael beach which is Tripadvisor's number 3 of 98 things to do in Albufeira! It's famous for its fine golden sand, clear waters and limestone rock formations.
A photographers paradise, there are also other stunning beaches closeby - Da Vigia, Praia Do Ninho de Andorinha (Swallows Nest Beach), Praia da Ponta Pequena (Small Point Beach), & Praia Da Ponta Grande to name a few of the small secluded beaches on your doorstep! Praia Da Coelha (Rabbit Beach) is accessed via. a short walk along a footpath from the car park which passes through Olive trees, ancient Carob trees and Bamboo groves, all simply stunning!
The Sao Rafael area is often referred to as the "Beverley Hills of Albufeira" due to it's extremely beautiful surroundings and select accommodation. There are many excellent restaurants within walking distance including "A Sardinho" which specialises in fresh fish dishes on the beach, the Restaurant Praia de Sao Rafael which is on Sao Rafael beach and serves food all day. The well reviewed Praia Grande Restaurant is on your doorstep. Also a short 7 minute drive away in Gale you will find the increasingly famous 2 Michelin starred Restaurant, Vila Joya!
If you prefer something more exotic there is a local Chinese restaurant also!
Or if you prefer a livelier scene just jump on the local bus or take a taxi and you're in Albufeira Marina in 5 minutes or Albufeira old town with its multitude of shops, bars & restaurants, in 15 minutes!
You can find Watersports, Dolphin spotting, boat & fishing trips, plenty of cycling and walking & lots of other activities to keep you entertained. Or alternatively you could just enjoy the scenery, the food, the plentiful sunshine, the lovely pools (both adults and children's) & just chill!
