Albufeira, Portugal - A Place in the Sun

2020 / Albufeira Portugal Jasmine Harman on 10 September 2020

Albufeira Portugal Jasmine Harman

Rita and Stephen from Watford love the lively Portuguese town of Albufeira so much they’ve visited it over 40 times. Now they’re finally buying their very own holiday home there and have called on Jasmine Harman to help them find a property that’s close to the beach and all the action. With £150,000 to spend, Jasmine has hunted out 5 great options for them to see, but will any live up to their idea of perfection?

Albufeira

What's the appeal?

Albuferia lies within the region of the Central Algarve. Translated, its name means “castle of the sea”, and it is arguably Portugal’s most popular holiday town – and you’re certainly never going to be short of things to do here, even though it was still a small fishing village just over 50 years ago. It’s made up of two main areas – the old town and the Strip, which is very popular with party people. And if you’re a fan of the beautiful game, look out for Portuguese football legends Luis Figo and Cristiano Ronaldo, both of whom have holiday homes here.
