Casa da Ursula is a spacious, traditional villa just 250m from the wonderful Praia dos Alemaes Beach, Albufeira. With three bedrooms, the villa is ideal for six guests, though if you use the double sofa bed in the twin bedroom, you can squeeze another two guests in.
Almaes Beach is wonderful and ideal for the whole family. There is a wide range of water activities including a floating playground, banana boats, pedal boats and kayaks. It is around the corner from the fabulous party beach Praia da Oura and the ‘Strip’, famous for its neon clubs and bars and buzzy nightlife which continues until sunrise. Albufeira is widely known as a party resort, but it is also fantastic for families and boasts a charming, cobbled Old Town, brimming with atmospheric restaurants and fantastic boutique shops. The ultramodern marina is also a delight with fabulous restaurants and excellent boat trips.
It is just perfect being able to walk to the sunny beach though you may be tempted to spend some time just chilling at the villa. The outside space is lovely with a fenced 8m x 4m swimming pool, terrace with sun loungers, a barbecue and alfresco dining and a garden with a lawn and lovely, colourful planting. There is also a roof terrace if you want to escape with a good book.
The living and dining space is open-plan with comfortable furnishings, an open fireplace and access to the terrace. Immediately at the exit, there is an outdoor covered lounge area with a hammock and some shady seating. The indoor living area is open to the dining space, which is raised by a couple of steps. It is an elegant, serene space for indoor dining. The kitchen is modern with wooden cupboards.
Casa da Ursula boasts three delightful bedrooms. One is a twin with the beds next to each other. It also has a sofa bed that guests may use. There are two comfortable double bedrooms. The bedrooms share two fully-tiled bathrooms, one with a shower and the other with a bath.
Casa da Ursula is in an excellent, central location, just metres from the beautiful Alemaes Beach in Albufeira. The villa is walking distance to shops, restaurants, cafes and much entertainment.
There are excellent beaches in Albufeira, and the surrounding coastline including Praia do Peneco, Praia da Oura, Praia da Coelha, Praia de Sao Rafael, Praia da Falesia, Praia dos Arrifes, Praia do Castelo and Praia de Santa, but those are just a few to mention. Albufeira’s town beach of Praia do Peneco is reached through a tunnel through the cliffs or by taking an elevator from the pristine promenade with superb sunset views. Tourists love the journey to the beach. At low tide you can take some seriously long beach walks along the golden sandy coastline, admiring the red cliffs that back most of the beaches along the way. The fabulous Praia da Falesia is almost 6km long and takes roughly 2 hours to walk!
The cobbled warren of narrow streets in the Old Town is lined with charming restaurants, whitewashed houses and excellent, unique shops. There are over 100 restaurants in all, many serving super fresh fish straight from the marina. The marina is a tourist destination in its own right. It is very modern and is brimming with luxury yachts, colourful fishing boats and excellent, chic restaurants as well as entertainment such as bouncy castles and bowling for the young ones.
Outside of Albufeira, visitors enjoy visiting Loule, Silves and Faro Old Town. All are charming with historic churches and castles, markets, fabulous restaurants and friendly locals. There are numerous thrilling adventures to be had in the theme parks, zoos, water parks and high ropes adventure courses. Golf fans are not forgotten as there are many world-class courses within easy reach.
