ABOUT THE HOUSE OF ARCH The apartment is located in the very center of the Albufeira old town. It was built in the 1970s and has been well maintained and updated since that time. The apartment is situated on the 2nd floor of a small block. It is not suitable for those who cannot manage the steps up and down the spiral stone staircase. There is no lift/elevator. There are two double bedrooms plus a sofa bed. Maximum occupancy SIX. There is a fully equipped kitchen. There is heating and cooling (air-con) equipment in all rooms. There is a safe available for your use. Cars and parking You do not need a car in Albufeira unless perhaps planning to make a lot of trips to other towns etc. Almost everything you need for your holiday is within 10 minutes walk. Parking in the old town of Albufeira is very limited. Most are available only for residents with permits. The nearest available free parking on the street is 20 meters away, but this not guaranteed to be available.
Looking for holiday rentals in Albufeira, Portugal at the most affordable rates? I understand what visitors expect from a holiday rental and know what sets great accommodation, location, and service apart from the mediocre. As a local resident for over 18 years, my in-depth knowledge of Albufeira, the Algarve, and holiday rentals helps countless visitors create memorable, worry-free, enjoyable vacations. Why settle for less when you can have the best?
Airport drop-offs and pickups These are possible almost to the door in cars and small vans. Large vehicles (e.g. shuttle coaches or buses) cannot stop closer than 250 meters away. We can arrange airport pickup and return if you wish. Restaurants, bars, and shops The apartment is adjacent to two small restaurants and just 30 seconds walk to many more restaurants, cafés, and small bars. The noisy bars and clubs are further away, but more than five minutes' walk. Although some noise at night is inevitable, you won't be too disturbed by loud music. There are a small supermarket 50 meters from the front door. A SPAR supermarket is about five minutes walk. Larger stores, including ALDI and LIDL, are 1 to 1.5km away. All supermarkets here are open all day, every day, Sundays and Holidays included EXCEPT December 25th and January 1st (all closed) and on December 24th almost all restaurants, bars and shops close early in the evening. Beach Albufeira's wide and sandy beach is two minutes' walk from the front door. Banks/Cash Machines There is a cash machine (ATM) 30 meters from the front door and several others in the main town square, 100 meters away. Advice - do NOT
