Portugal, Algarve, Faro, Albufeira
Alan Rogers Review
The spacious entrance to this site will accommodate the largest of units. A very pleasant, well-run site, it has space for 1400 touring units on generally flat ground with some terracing on the upper area: trees and shrubs giving reasonable shade in most parts. Pitches are not marked or numbered and you can take as much space as you wish. Electrical connections (10A) are available throughout. Winter stays are encouraged with the main facilities remaining open, including a pool.
An attractively designed complex of traditional Portuguese-style buildings on the hill houses the impressive range of restaurants and bars with the pool complex adjacent. It has large sunbathing terraces with pleasant views and is surrounded by a variety of flowers, shrubs and well-watered lawns, complete with a fountain.
The à la carte restaurant, impressive with its international cuisine, the very pleasant self-service one and several bars all have views across the three pools. A pizzeria and a soundproofed disco are great for younger campers. The resort of Albufeira has shops, bars and restaurants with a bus service from the gate. Along the coast in both directions is a variety of beaches and villages, and the bustling resort of Faro is within easy reach.
