Apartments Balaia Sol

This typically Portuguese holiday home is situated in a gorgeous spot near the touristy town of Albufeira. The peace and quiet is amazing just like the views of the area and the sea. I strolled around the gorgeous garden, under the pergolas with colourful bougainvilleas, admiring all of the characteristic Azulejos. These unique Portuguese tiles tell the story of the former fishermen’s town of Albufeira and they look magnificent!

From the comfort of the pool, I enjoyed the atmosphere of this delightful holiday location. After a refreshing dip, I passed the garden on my way to the apartment. The interior of the apartment is just as atmospheric as the exterior: just as I had expected! As the night fell, I walked from Balaia Sol to the centre to try one of their typically Portuguese fish restaurants. Such a unique place!

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.

Tip: If you are travelling with 4 or more people, it is advisable to book an upgrade or an extra car. You can select the car upgrade in the booking steps. Do you want to book an extra car? Please contact us.
