My wife and I our 2 year old twin boys and their grandparents stayed in block 34 apartment 1A in Parque de Corcovada in May. We've hired this apartment several times now and always had a lovely holiday.
Faro airport is 35 Kilometres away or about 22 miles , which takes about 40 mins traveling time to the apartment depending on the time of day. The apparent is on the second floor and can easily be accessed by the stairs or lift. It has 2 bedrooms with bedroom 1 having access onto a balcony and en-suite. There is a large living/ dinning area with TV and DVD player with satellite connection, there is also access via patio doors to a large balcony. The kitchen is a well equipped kitchen with microwave and oven, fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. Also available for use is a travel cot and microwave sterilizer. The apartment is also air conditioned. The apartment also has shutters on all the windows great if you have small children as it totally blacks out the room.
There is secure underground parking should you wish to hire a car. There is a communal pool area consisting of one large pool and one small child's pool there is also sunbeds and umbrellas for shade. The water isn't heated and can be a touch chilly if it's a cloudy day.
If golf is your thing there are several local golf courses within 15-30 mins car journey from apartment including Millenium,Oceanio and Victoria golf courses.
The nearest beach is about 1.5 km or just under a mile which should take you about 25/30 mins to walk. Though you pass lots of bars en-route if you wish stop for a beer to quench your thirst.
A 10min walk there is the local supermarket and cash machine. We used to go here every morning to pick up fresh croissants and bread. You also have a wide selection of bars and restaurants on this main strip. If you wanted coffee or breakfast in the morning there is a Dutch restaurant just 5 mins walk (you will pass this on your way to the supermarket) An excellent restaurant for the evening is Eduardo's which is the opposite side of the road from the supermarket. A 2 min walk from the apparent is a Pizza place and the Parque de Corcovada restaurant.
From the apartment a 10 min taxi or bus or a 30 min walk takes you to the Albufeira Old Town where again there are many fine restaurants (we really enjoy Shalom II at the top of town), bars and shops to enjoy yourself in, there is also a lovey beach. We used walk in and catch the taxi home costing about 5 euros.
A fantastic clean, modern apartment in great location we will definitely visit again soon.
