Flor da Laranja, Albufeira Portugal
★ ★ ★
A small, family run, self-catering establishment that attracts those who prefer to be away from the hubbub of the main resort areas and in a fairly rural location.
There is no staff on duty for most of the day and so key collection arrangements should be made in advance.
The small areas of grounds at the rear of the property are compact and unsophisticated but provide some quiet corners for relaxation.
A long and narrow accommodation building stretches along the side of a small car park at the rear with a gated entrance from a narrow lane. The flat fronted street facing section has little appeal and has a narrow entrance displaying contact information. Each unit has a small terrace leading out to the grounds.
Property type: Apartments
Storeys: 1 & 2
There are no interior communal areas.
A tiny pool area at the rear of the property has a very narrow surround and a limited supply of furnishings. The car park has a number of flowing plants on either side and neat lawns with its surrounding flowerbed is well maintained.
Area Type: On the main road, in the tiny hamlet of Pata, some 5km to the E of the main resort area and with very little around in the way of tourist amenities. Although there are wide expanses of farmland behind the property, there may be some noise from the road, which runs immediately outside the front. Car hire is recommended although there is a bus service from 100m away and a small shop and snack bar 200m along the main road.
