Description

The space

Spectacular marina and sea view perfect for a romantic dinner on the beautiful terrace overlooking sail boats in the sunset.

Guest access

Easy access to old town and beach through a short and very scenic walk; fishermen's wharf at 2 minutes, several good restaurants at a 5 minute walking distance; cafes below apartments at Marina boardwalk. Albufeira is the contact point between the Lisbon highway and the Algarve. It is also the first stop on the Algarve of the Lisbon trains.

Interaction with guests

I am free-lance photographer and I have been living in Dubai for almost 10 years. My husband and I have lived in many countries. I was born in Germany and my husband in Finland. We both grew up in Brazil and did our university studies in the USA. After our studies we lived in the USA, France, Germany, Hong Kong, etc... We chose Portugal to live in since we speak the language fluently and also because the Portuguese people are really fantastic. During our frequent absences, our property manager will welcome our guests: The very friendly and hospitality-experienced Veronika Seres.

The neighbourhood

Albufeira is spotlessly clean, the people are extraordinary friendly, calm, helpful and tourism-savvy. The town is the most beautiful of the region, due to the hilly site, organically developed vernacular architecture and great beaches. You also got an elevator to get down to the wind protected beach.

Getting around

15 minute walk to town center and beach along boat house and fishermen's wharf. 7 minute walks each to 2 great restaurants. Pool.

Other things to note

In town there are great venues for shows and sports, entertainment strips, public olympic level pools. All conveniences, malls, shops of all kinds are either in-town or within a 20 minute drive.

We spent several days at Corinne's place in Albufeira. We were very well received and warmly welcomed by Veronika. Veronika explained the area to us and gave us great suggestions that made our stay fabulous. The condo is just simply great. Spectacular view. Excellent location. Super super clean. Airy and bright. Very spacious. It is much better in person than what the pictures show. You can try hard to find a fault but at the end you'll really have nothing bad at all to say about this condo or have any suggestion to improve it. Add to that Veronika's engaging personality, total dedication to make guests feel at home, and her desire to help in any way possible, and you'll have the best place ever to stay at while in Albufeira. We'll be back for sure! THANK YOU.

From start to finish my experience with Corinne was perfect. I contacted her to ask whether she minded me booking her apartment with my profile for my mother and father in-law as they have only ever used package holidays and were very skeptical (and not very IT savvy). They were worried about airport transfers but Corinne sorted everything and I managed to convince them to let me book it. They have both come back from "the best holiday ever". I was nervous as they can be very particular and have a concern with cleanliness, however the apartment was everything they could want and more. My mother in-law loved the fact it even had a washing machine! They ate at some lovely restaurants in and around the area, the old town around a 15 minute pleasant walk away (although they did mention it can be a bit hilly if you have problems getting around). Veronika met them at the apartment after a late flight and was on hand at any time during their weeks stay which made them feel reassured and helped them relax. They honestly couldn't fault it whatsoever and would highly recommend this apartment to anyone - I'm thinking of going myself! Thanks again for everything Corinne and I look forward to booking again with you soon.

Response from Corinne:
Thank you so much Rhiannon! It was a pleasure for Veronika and me to host your in-laws. They are always welcome back and so are you! We would be very happy to be able to welcome you soon. All the best!

Ok, so this is a great modern flat with a communal pool in Algarve Marina, so far you can find some other places like this. What makes this place genuinely unique is Corrine : very thoughtful (thanks for the welcome gift) prompt and precise responses, very clear descriptions and very nice answers (even if everything is aready in the description). And then you meet Veronika for the check-in and you realize how great this woman is, how welcome she makes you feel (like a friend leaving a flat for you), how fantastic are her recommendations (our day out in Gale beach was perfect thanks to her indications) and how awesome her view on the world is ... A great place to stay and a fantastic human experience. Many thanks for that

"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page"
This is my life motto. I travel a lot because of my job and love to talk to people from all over the world. I have lived in 9 countries spread around several continents.
I now live in Dubai where people from 147 countries live together in one city.
There is always a lot to absorb from all of these different cultures.
Being a host is then a natural extension of this multi-cultural interaction.
