The modern main bathroom is situated off the hallway with a bath, shower, wash hand basin, toilet and bidet. The en-suite off the master bedroom contains a similar bath, shower, wash hand basin, toilet and bidet.
The kitchen is modern and well fitted with marble worktops and all essential mod cons including dishwasher etc. and the separate utility room houses the washing machine, ironing board etc.

The patio/terrace has padded sun loungers, table, chairs and parasol and is surrounded by beautiful mature landscaped gardens and is not overlooked. Within the grounds there are superbly maintained grassed areas to sunbathe, picnic or for children to play with 4 snack bar/restaurants situated around the pool areas serving hot + cold snacks and drinks during the day and local, European and ‘A la Carte’ dishes during the evening. Into town and especially around the main square there is a wide choice of cafes, bars and restaurants to cater for most tastes and budgets.
The apartment was newly built in 2006 within an already highly successful, safe and secure complex which has a spacious village feel maintaining traditional Portuguese flavour. The Algarve is beautiful, friendly and the weather remains good nearly all the year through, still around the 15 degree mark in the winter. The complex is ideal being close enough to town and all its amenities but being just on the outskirts is far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet.
Situated on the ground floor to the quiet rear of the complex the apartment is a few minutes walk from the 24 hour main reception which has further internet and office facilities and it’s own ATM cash machine. (There are plenty of further ATM’s and banks in town). The complex has some walkways and paths that do have fair inclines and may not be fully suitable for those with walking difficulties.
Set amongst beautiful, clean and well maintained grounds the apartment is a lovely place to stay or use as a base to then discover the rest of The Algarve or whatever is your preference.
Things to do
If you want to do more than just relax there is plenty to do locally and you may wish to visit the acclaimed Zoo Marine or the Water Parks, Modern Marina, etc, or try your hand at Local Big Game Fishing, Sailing, Water Sports, Paragliding, Scuba Diving, Boat Excursions, Horse Riding, Caving, Jeep Safaris, Quad Bike Treks, Bicycle Touring, Hiking, Cycling, Museums, Churches, etc and most can be organised at reception.
If shopping is of interest then the Old Town has daily market stalls or you may wish to visit the large Algarve Shopping Complex which is an approximate 5 min drive with a cinema, bowling alley and a host of designer shops and retail outlets.
The Old Town is charming with its cobbled side streets, bustling centre square, daily market stalls, evening entertainers, cafes, bars and fine restaurants right alongside the beautiful sandy Fishermans Beach. In addition the adjacent beach area of Priara d’Oura and the lively Montechoro strip offer thriving nightlife, cafes, bars, shops and restaurants to cater for all.
The resort is central to nearly 30 golf courses, many championship quality and reputed to be some of the finest in Europe all within an approximate 5-30 minute drive including the well known courses at Vilamoura, Vila sol, Vale Do Lobo, Quinta Do Lago, Salgados, Penina, Boa Vista, Pinhal Do Concelho, Vale Do Milho, Vale Do Pinta, Pinhal, Palmares, Pinheiros Altos, Ria Formosa, Gramacho, Lagos, Balaia, Sao Lourenco etc.

Some of our properties have age restrictions, such as where we feel it would not be suitable for younger all adult groups, such as within quiet residential areas where noise may be an issue.
All bookings are subject to Owners’ Discretion

We had a great time at Casa Branco and everything at the apartment was excellent. We hope to return in the future.By: Sean
Enjoyable from start to finish
Beautiful complex, pools and restaurants. Grounds well maintained and staff always to be seen busy and friendly. Plenty of hills throughout the grounds but taxis are cheap and plentiful for getting about and will drop you as close to your door as possible. Booking of this apartment was very easy and quick and we had no problems from our first contact to our last. All queries were dealt with quickly and satisfactory. Apartment was finished to a very high standard, bedrooms were spacious with lots of storage and having two bathrooms was great. Kitchen was well fitted and there was no shortage of crockery, glasses etc. Kids loved having the tv and dvd player [they brought their own dvds from home]. Having separate freezer was fab as is meant we were able to stock up the shopping[Lidl was close by] and there was a taxi rank outside it so no heavy loads to carry. Zoomarina is well worth a visit, kids loved it [4 year old and 3 year old]. We booked it at reception and the pick up point was just outside the complex on the opposite side of the road so that was very handy. Staff were great to deal with, very helpful and friendly and responded to any queries very quickly and satisfactory. All in all we had a fantastic family holiday and the kids are already asking when are we going back.By: K. Palin
Why look for better when you have the best
We would like to thank you for making our stay in Clube Albufeira, Casa Branco a very comfortable and relaxing time, we feel this was greatly helped by the size of the apartment and the facilities that were on offer, the location of the apartment was ideal as it was located right by the pool and park for which my children spent most of their time, the recommended restaurant for which was within a 1 minute walk was excellent and staff all round the complex were very friendly and always helpful, having stayed in Albufeira before i felt the location of the resort was better than our previous visits to other resorts as very close to old and new towns, I would recommend this apartment/complex to any other family with young children looking for a Great family holidayBy: M. Long
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Branco
It was fantastic and loved everything about it. The apartment was immaculate and in a great location close to a really lovely pool with aqua aerobics in the afternoon. The whole process from booking to arriving was amazing with great customer service, thank you for a wonderful holiday.By: Joe
A great place to relax and unwind with my family
The apartment was lovely, very well kept and clean, reflecting the website's images perfectly! We loved the resort - it was very clean and well kept and quiet. Lots for our infant to enjoy and a nice distance to the town and beach. The resort might be a bit quiet especially in the evening for those without young children, but we enjoyed the peace and quiet and it suited our holiday perfectly. The staff at Complete were very helpful! They helped with our questions on arrival and we felt happy everything was in hand. We had a very enjoyable week and thoroughly enjoyed Albufeira and the resort/apartment. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.By: The Tonks Family
The apartment was fantastic, spacious and well fitted with the grounds and pools superb and clean. The location was great, a pleasant amble into town or a few mins in a taxi if you were lazy. There was also a free shuttle bus which was handy and the reception staff were friendly and helpful. We loved the beaches and Albufeira old town and will be back.By: Martin M
Fab time in Portugal!
From the point of booking to our time spent at the apartment the staff at Complete and those at the complex were all very helpful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The complex was very well maintained, especially the swimming pools and restaurants which were reasonably priced as were the bars and restaurants in town which is lovely. The apartment had everything we required and as it was situated on the ground floor it was just great to sit out on the patio in the evening and enjoy the last of the days sunshine with a glass of wine. We tried and can recommend the beach BBQ, which was organised by the locals and the all day fishing was a success with 18 in total tuna caught plus Zoo Marine is a must for the family ! We can definitely recommend the apartment and the area and will be back !By: Kev and Annette
We stayed here in August as we were getting married out in Portugal. The apartment was very clean and spacious and set back out the way of the pool so no noise, but it is only 2 minute walk. It was fab, we would certainly recommend to everyone! There is a really great restaurant on site if you didn't want to go into town. There is hardly any noise on site as you are far enough away from it. Definitely be returning!!By: Kay J.
CASA BRANCO - Fantastic, Clean, Spacious Apartment
Casa Branco exceeded all our requirements and Club Albufeira was a lovely complex with lots of green areas and play areas for small children and activities for bigger children. The restaurants and snack bars were very good and Albufeira is a lovely town with cobbled streets and a picturesque beach. I would recommend the apartment and complex as an ideal summer holiday destination and I cannot fault the service I received from Complete Holiday Homes who were very competent and helpful.By: Cleary
Our stay at Casa Branco was great thank you. Firstly it wasn't too far from airport, no one likes long transfers after a flight. The apartment was lovely, clean, airy, & well decorated with the added bonus of a washing machine, very handy and I liked the fact that the apartment had a closed in garden which was private but without feeling cut off. The grounds were very well kept with lots of vibrant flowers and the whole complex was so clean and tidy! The pools were all slightly different to suit different types and were never over crowded, never any struggle to get a sun lounger, and had plenty of sun loungers near the pools, (important for parents with kids so you can keep an eye on them). The complex was quiet & peaceful and I had a very relaxing time. I loved the cats, cheese toasties & gorgeous smoothies, ha ha! We did a boat trip along the coastline which was nice but I wouldn't recommend it to those with children as they will be ridiculously bored! Overall the apartment and Albufeira were absolutely lovely and I would go again!By: G. Wilding
Family holiday in Albufeira
We have been to Portugal many times and think the apartment was one of the best one we have stayed in! The rooms were clean and all the equipment worked. We were amazed even the water pressure was excellent in the showers as this can be a problem when you are on a big site. We all enjoyed Zoomarine, an excellent day out for all ages including mum and dad ! The old town had plenty of choices of restaurants and places for the odd cocktail. The girls always enjoy looking at the numerous shops for something different and Albufeira never disappoints. Your staff and administration have been fantastic, clear and precise with your emails and when I rang the office regarding a suspicious email you quickly put my mind at ease that my booking was safe. I have to also say that Housekeeping was very efficient and helpful too once we arrived at the villa. We had a few 'minor hiccups' however I text straight away and nothing was too much trouble and they sorted all problems out within hours.By: Mather Family
My son (aged 6) and I stayed here and we loved it ! From the point of booking up until we arrived back home I cannot praise Complete Holiday Homes enough for providing such a polite and efficient service ! When we landed at Faro airport our transfer to take us to the apartment was ready and waiting. It took us about half an hour to get there and when we did ....WOW !... A bright, modern and exceptionally clean apartment was waiting for us to enjoy our holidays. A great start !! The first thing my son noticed when we walked around the complex which was well tended and lush green were the 4 swimming pools and yes we tried out every single one, all of which had a different feel and were lovely and clean with friendly staff around at all times. The complex is a short walk down to the 'Old Town' and beach which we visited everyday to enjoy the atmosphere in the market as well as the food and souvenirs. We strolled along the beautiful sandy beach and enjoyed dipping our feet into the water with an ice-cream in hand and watching the water-sport activities that passed us. In the evenings back in the apartment the DVD player was an added bonus so my son could relax with his favourite Superhero movies that we packed whilst I took in the view from the back garden. Our best experience in which I highly recommend was the ZooMarina which was our 'special day out' ... jam packed with Dolphin Shows/Pirate Shows/Water Slides/Play Areas/A Dinosaur museum and other aquatic animals ! A must for the family. All in all a wonderful experience and I am thinking of booking flights to return !!By: Sophie and Oliver
Superb April getaway to a gorgeous apartment in Portugal
What can I say, it's Easter in the middle of April and I'm sat on the patio in Portugal having breakfast 1st thing in the morning! The apartment is gorgeous, spacious and clean and Clube Albufeira is very well appointed with lovely tended gardens, spotlessly clean pools, areas for the kids to play and a few welcome adult hideaways. The restaurants on site that I've already been to presented us with some gorgeous food at reasonable prices and I'm looking forward to trying more. The old town is great with lots of different bars and restaurants to chose from including a fab authentic Portugeuse restaurant called The Atrium housed in the old theatre with little balconies overlooking the cobbled street below. The beach is lovely too and there's not a sign of seaweed in sight.... yippee :-) I didn't realise Portugal had such lovely all round weather and would certainly look to come again out of season for longer next time. Fantastic break with fantastic company, thank you.By: Nicola
Spring in the Algarve - excellent.
We had the most glorious weather last week, for the beginning of March, so maybe we saw things through rose tinted sun glasses. Everything about our stay was excellent. The apartment was clean and comfortable and the only possible negative was the parasol outside which seems to have been in the wars a bit over the winter season but still works, just. That’s about the only negative thing we can think of to comment on, everything else was just about perfect. Thanks for all your help,By: Laurie and Dawn
Lovely Spacious Apartment
Casa Branco was very nice, clean and in a lovely quiet setting. The area/complex was lovely and I really enjoyed the old town ' Albufeira' and the complex ' Clube Albufeira''. All the Complete staff were very helpful and reliable and I would definitely go back again in the futureBy: Melissa
Casa Branco - Apartment on Club Albufeira
Casa Branco -Apartment was attractively designed and furnished, and was well situated with a good outlook. Nice apartment. Restaurants, on and off site provided good food, and those off site gave particularly good value. Complete's staff and administration were always excellent.By: David L
Fabulous apartment, great location.
Casa Branco, wow - loved it! - such a great position within Clube Albufeira, liked being at the top of the complex so not overlooked.... patio got the sun from early till late. A really comfy home from home, could quite happily have moved in permanently! We love Albufeira (& Clube Albufeira - have stayed before). We just want to relax during the day and stroll down to the Old Town at night for a meal and a few drinks so it suited us perfectly, though I know there is plenty to do around for people who don't just want to relax all day. Restaurants on site are great for lunch each day. We did venture to Algarve Shopping Centre on a cloudy day and that was enjoyable. The old town is a 20 minute stroll along the fitness trail (or a 5 euro taxi, which reception can call for you). Endless choice of restaurants and bars. The staff at Complete Holiday Homes were super - really helpful, friendly, efficient, great to deal with. Everything happened at the time I was told it would happen so no need to 'chase' anything up ever. Thanks for everything - will definitely be booking again for next year - didn't want to come home!By: H. Stephens
Excellent Family Holiday Location
The apartment was excellent and in a great location within the complex. Very clean and great air conditioning. Clube Albufeira had everything we needed for our family holiday in a low key spacious environment. Great pools, good shop and the bottom restaurant is excellent. All staff very friendly. The Complete Holiday home team were very helpful, in particular very prompt in responding to all enquiries including while on the holiday.By: The Robb Family
We have stayed in the apartment before and it is great. The complex is ideal as it is a short taxi or bus ride into the old town. Complete staff have been very helpful as usual.By: Sumner
Casa Branco Albufeira
A great sized apartment, very well presented with good air conditioning and comfortable beds. Great location, few steps from pool and bar/restaurant area. Short taxi ride to both old and new town, which was great! All round great chilled out area, peaceful and clean. Will be back again for sure !By: Paul R.
Great Family Holiday
Great sized apartment in a great location. It has everything a family needs and the box of outdoor toys in the utility room and the sideboard filled with books to read are really nice touches (although with 2 kids there was no chance of getting to read one!) :-) Apartment was in a great location.....lovely view from the garden and we LOVED the heated pool just round from us. Was great for the kids to be right next to the park. In the surrounding area of the apartment we enjoyed all the local attractions such as Zoo Marine (FANTASTIC couple of days out!!!!), Crazy World, Slide & Splash, Albufeira Riding School, Felicia Beach and the Zoo at Lagos. The kids loved all of these.....as did the big kids. Complete's staff have been FANTASTIC!!! Very prompt responses to all my emails and when I spoke to Sophie on the phone she was very helpful. Also the cleaners who arrived at the apartment when we were leaving on the last day were very nice and friendly.By: The Mackays
Beautiful apartment !
Upon arrival we found a beautiful apartment, very well decorated and with all the amenities we needed for our week. Very good beds. We did not use the dishwasher and the washer, but this would be very useful for longer stays. We enjoyed the Albufeira Club, the pool was very nice, the kids playground and the small supermarket! Very good rapport with the employees of Complete. All my questions were answered quickly. We will recommend Complete to all our friends who want to go to Albufeira!By: Fabien S
Peaceful place and easy access to Albufeira Old Town
We had a great stay at Casa Branco over the New Year period. The apartment was lovely, well situated on the complex and (very important to us) quiet. The only on site restaurant open during our stay was the Pavilion which was fine and the food and service were great. The walk down to Albufeira will be easier shortly once the path from the footbridge is open, but we walked in every day and back most nights. It is very well lit and the road was not too busy. In terms of supermarkets – the campsite was very low on supplies due to the low season, but after the first day we shopped at Pingo Doce, just by the trail into town, and they also have a fresh fish counter and butcher as well as a hot bread shop and lovely Pastel de Nata :-) The apartment was lovely and we really enjoyed our stay. It is a well equipped place and very comfortable. I loved the artwork as well.By: The Wise Party
Perfect apartment in Albufeira
With regard to the the apartment, everything was bright and fresh. We didn't use the dishwasher or washing machine so I can't comment on them but everything else was in full working order. The apartment, of course, is comfortable and spacious with a pleasant outlook from the south facing patio. The staff at Complete Holiday Homes and Club Albufeira were helpful and efficient. We found that both of the on site restaurants 'O Pavilhao' and 'A Pergula' were very good and reasonably priced. Probably 20% cheaper than a similar UK restaurant, Portugal, and in particular Albufeira, is, for me, the perfect place to go on holiday.By: D. Lawn
Lovely Spacious Apartment
Everything was great thanks, the apartment was lovely, had everything we needed and was nice and cool in that heat!By: S. Drew
The booking and information received from Complete Holiday Homes was great. Emails and queries were responded to promptly and we felt well informed at all times. The property is excellently located within Clube Albufeira, in a quieter part which was great for us with two young children. The apartment was well set up and kitchen was fully equipped. We had plenty of towels and bedding, and the AC was excellent. There was a cupboard with lots of toys for the kids to borrow and there was even a parasol which was essential for our trip to slide and splash. The site with the pools and bars were brilliant and there was a good play area and volleyball/basketball court. It was clean and staff were very friendly. The beach is about 2.5km away and is excellent, lovely soft sand and lots of water sports. We tended to go into the old town in the evening which has a huge variety of restaurants. There are lots of market stalls selling locally made crafts. The town square has entertainment in the evenings ranging from local singing and dancing to a puppet show. We had an amazing holiday and will definitely return.By: Justine K
Excellent property in a lovely resort
We very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Branco in Clube Albufeira. We found the apartment to be very well maintained, clean, bright and spacious. We had all the facilities we required for our stay, fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, iron and ironing board etc. We found the location of the apartment in Clube Albufeira excellent, we were just a very short stroll from two of the four pools on the resort. We also had the choice to use the outdoor area at the apartment, so plenty of choice to relax and enjoy the sunshine. We ate at two of the restaurants on site and found the food and service very good. All in all, myself and my family very much enjoyed our stay. In relation to your company, I found Complete Holiday Homes excellent to deal with throughout the booking process. Any queries I had were dealt with promptly and efficiently. I would have no hesitation in recommending Complete Holiday Homes and Casa Branco to family and friends. Again, many thanks to you and your colleagues for your assistance throughout the booking processBy: Anna G
Another wonderful stay at this lovely property
We had another wonderful stay at Casa Branco, the property was immaculately clean on arrival and equipped with everything we needed for our stay (& more) it's a real home from home. We spent our days relaxing on the patio which kept the sun all day, really comfy with the sunbed cushions provided. The apartment is located in a peaceful area of the complex, so no disruption to our peace and quiet. The beds are so comfy (unlike a lot of 'holiday' beds) so we slept really well each night. Didn't really use the kitchen (apart from a cup of tea and toast), but everything was there even if you wanted to stay in and cook. Plenty of hot water for showering each night (again unlike some other holiday properties) We walked to the old town each night - an even nicer walk now the path goes all the way to the Clube Albufeira foot bridge, plenty of restaurants and bars open even though it was early on in the season. Will definitely be back, missed Casa Branco each day since returning home.By: Helen
Lovely Apartment, home from home - highly recommended
This was our third stay at this wonderful apartment in Clube Albufeira. The apartment is spacious, homely and has every comfort you could wish for, its a real home from home and as usual was immaculately presented on arrival. We are incredibly lazy whilst on holiday so spent every day relaxing on the sun trap patio. The apartment is in a great location within the complex, near to two pools and the blue restaurant, but is very peaceful if you just want to sit and read and relax. The old town is an easy 25 minute stroll, the path into town (over the footbridge) has been a work in progress over the years (the start of it was a dirt track when we first stayed), it is now all finished, so the stroll to town is easier than ever. Endless choice of restaurants / bars in the old town to suit all budgets / tastes. As usual on leaving Casa Branco, did not want to go home - cannot wait to return (already looking at dates for next year).By: Stephens
Casa Branco Portugal
We had a wonderful time, with four swimming pools and pool bars available to use its amazing. Free transport to the town and beach 10.00 & 17.00 daily. Taxi service very good and quick. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable with WIFI.By: Steve Y
Casa Branco was lovely
The five days we spent at Casa Branco was lovely and we wish we could have stayed for longer. The apartment was really nice and clean and close to the pools and restaurants. We never hired a car but the Ubers were amazing and very cheap. We would definitely recommend yourselves to our friends and family. Once again many thanksBy: Roy & Margaret
