What’s so special?..........................
Being one of the newest beachfront developments in Albufeira, with its rare stunning sea views, it’s a quiet condo, but still extremely close to the hustle and bustle of Albufeira, literally only a two minute (250 metres) stroll through the private gated access to the beach of Forte São Jõao. The beaches in the Algarve are generally all quite amazing but in this part of Albufeira you'll enjoy the best of the best. Additional beaches in the immediate vicinity include ‘Praia dos Aveiros’ (small and secluded) and ‘Praia da Oura’ which offers an array of water sports
A leisurely 15 minute stroll along the beach (tide permitting) takes you into the Old Town of Albufeira with it’s quaint cobbled streets and amazing cuisine. Albufeira is regarded as the tourist capital of the Algarve offering excellent restaurants, shopping, local markets, night-life and relaxation. The town itself offers an interesting contrast with its two distinct areas known as The Old Town with Marina and famous ‘Strip’
The ‘Strip’ is only a 5 minutes (500 metres) walk from the Barracuda, in the ‘Praia da Oura’ area, also with it’s many shops, restaurants, bars, discos, bull ring and vibrant night-life. For Golf lovers, Pine Cliffs, Salgados and Balaia golf couses are close by, and of course the six world-class championship courses at Villamoura are only just a 20 minute drive away. You’ll find nearby the water parks and Marine Park - ‘ZooMarine’ making Barracuda the perfect location for couples, families and golfers who are looking for something special to enjoy a fun relaxing holiday. The Apartment (privately owned) is on the third level, overlooking the pool and sea, capturing the amazing view across Albufeira's Old Town. Because it’s the centre building, it’s very private and is not overlooked at all by any other apartments, all you can see from inside the lounge and bedroom is that fabulous sea - both doors leading to the balcony open fully, enabling you to enjoy the outside from within, and the amazing views from beyond!!!. The spacious south west facing balcony is perfect for summer al fresco dining or just relaxing the hot afternoons away in the sun. In the evenings you will experience the most spectacular evening sun sets.
