Breathe in the tang of salty brine off the sea as it intermingles with the scent of iridescent white sand, warmed beneath the bright sun. Located at the southernmost point of Portugal, you'll find yourself in the Algarve, a region that absorbs 3,000 hours of sunlight per year, and boasts the enticing flavours of Portuguese delicacies that range from Piri Piri to freshly caught seafood.
Sights & Attractions
At the apex between the old and the new, Albufeira is a fascinating city that will strike up your curiosity and pander to both beach bums and seekers of new experiences. Meander through the alleys of the old town, lined with dusted white architecture reminiscent of the Arab influences that pepper its culture. Red speckled roofs peek out over the jagged golden cliffs that loom above the city's resplendent beaches, keeping watch over sunbathers and beach-walkers. The other side of town is abuzz with a strip of enticing culinary experiences and hopping venues for dancing the night into dusk.
Accommodations & Amenities
Nestled in proximity to all the exuberant hustle and bustle of Albufeira's environs, the Solaqua Apartments offer welcome respite after long days of beach dozing or road tripping through coastal Portugal. Catch the slow dip of the sunset from your studio's balcony as it projects its warm glow over the city, or whip up a concoction of your favourite delicacies the way only you know how with the fully equipped kitchenette. Pristine and simple furnishings provide a sense of tranquility throughout your three week stay, and should you decide to stay in for a night of more relaxing entertainment, your LCD television will keep you enthralled with full satellite TV access.
For the days when you're less inclined for adventure, you'll find a battalion of sun loungers to stretch out on with the latest best seller. Drift lazily along in the heated indoor pool or luxuriate with a soothing soak in the frothing Jacuzzi. After stocking up with delectable treats to fill your fridge at the nearby supermarket, you'll stable your sleek, horseless chariot rental in the onsite car park.
Zip along the countryside or hug the twisting coastline in your rental car, where you'll have prime access to even more of Portugal's landscape. Stunning golf courses line the ocean's edge where you can work your handicap alongside exquisite panoramas. Zoom through the different parishes in Albufeira and discover culinary traditions like the lip-smackingly scrumptious Guia chicken from Guia parish, or tour inside Paderne parish's ruins of the Castle of Paderne, rumoured as one of the first castles to fly the vibrant red, green and yellow colours of Portugal's flag.
