Cerro Branco

Cerro Branco, Albufeira Portugal

★    ★   ★

A pleasant and well-landscaped self-catering operation which enjoys attractive views over Albufeira’s old town area and towards the sea.

The relatively close proximity of a variety of snack outlets, restaurants and shops compensates for the lack of amenities within the complex.

The mature and well-established grounds involve many steps which may well prove difficult for less agile travellers. Guests should check their arrangements for key collection if arriving out of hours.

Exterior

A series of 3 conventional and modern looking white fronted blocks, located either side of the road. Some cascading vegetation adds a little style to the rather mundane appearance and numerous sets of steep stairways connect the accommodation and pool areas. Each apartment has a wide airy balcony with a metal railing.
