Villas in Albufeira

 

CENTRAL ALBUFEIRA

Once a fishing village, now Albufeira is arguably best known for its livelier side.  Whilst the nightlife is vibrant in certain areas, there are also parts that retain its original character and ambience.  The charming old town has winding, cobbled streets and white painted archways with artisan shops and stalls.  The main square has a great atmosphere and, in the height of summer, there is often live music and entertainment.  This part of the coast also has some of the best beaches in the Algarve.  We highly recommend experiencing this sensational coastline by boat and exploring the amazing caves and beaches which cannot be reached on foot. Boat trips can be arranged at Albufeira marina.

 

EASTERN ALBUFEIRA

Praia d’Oura is to the east of Albufeira and is perhaps the liveliest part of this region.  It is great for young people, or the young at heart, with The Strip offering night clubs and bars and catering very much to holidaymakers and the party crowd.  The beach here is quite beautiful with a long stretch of golden sand and plenty of facilities.

A little further east are the areas of Santa Eulália and Olhos D’Água which were originally small fishing communities and have since become bustling resorts. These resorts have beautiful sandy beaches with infamous rock formations. Many of the villas we offer here are in prime positions with sea views and within walking distance of a beach, restaurants and all the attractions. Some are set in extensive grounds, allowing privacy even at the height of the season.

 

WESTERN ALBUFEIRA

Vale de Parra is to the west of Albufeira and here you will find some of the Algarve’s finest beaches.  Perhaps most well known is Galé beach; a vast expanse of golden sand and calm waters with restaurants, water sports, jet skiing, parasailing and much more.  It can be busy in the summer but turn down any of the tracks long the coast road and you are likely to find a quieter beach or bay.  Slightly inland you will find Guia; famous for its reasonably priced restaurants serving chicken piri-piri (dry cooked, with a spicy chilli marinade).

 

Things we love: Albufeira is great for families and young groups with lots of activities and nightlife in the livelier resorts and some of the prettiest beaches in the Algarve. There are plenty of quieter areas for those who want a more relaxing vibe such as Vale de Parra area.  Some of our most loved villas are in this area and we have clients that return year after year.

Things to be aware of: Some of the resorts in this area can become crowded in the peak season.   With so many beaches and coves along the coast road, it is well worth exploring to find your new favourite bay.  It is also a good idea to book ahead if you want to eat out as the restaurants can get busy.
