Albu – Where – A ?
Something that might appeal to many of our supporters: “20-20 Voice” have teamed up with our friend Becci who runs the entertainmant side in a “damned fine bar” over there. Just to keep tourists in touch with dear old Blighty it is rather quaintly named “The Old House” – which is run by Tony & Linda (plenty of credits on Trip Advisor too) and if you want some proof of people’s enjoyment simply join in the chat on their facebook page where all updates go
Great bar, great atmosphere, just a great night!
Abroad, in this case, means the beautiful resort of Albufeira which sits on the southern coast of Portugal in the Algarve region, ensuring that it is a major holiday destination for people worldwide. Albufeira has two main beaches, Praia dos Pescadores (or the Fishermen’s Beach) and Praia do Túnel (or the tunnel beach), which is accessed through a tunnel through the cliffs. The beaches are accessible from the esplanade from via open-air escalators (in the east) and an open-air elevator (in the west) and a sea breeze usually freshens the annual average temperature of the Algarve which is 17.7 °C (63.9 °F) (12 °C (54 °F) in January to about 30 °C (86 °F) in August). All in all it is a superb location for a nice relaxing holiday whether you be young or not quite so young!
Superb beaches in Albufeira
Becci [& husband Trev] (both English based originally) have combined to let you know about a whole gamut of possible entertainments whilst holidaying
… and here is a simple solution to all your holiday living arrangements! Our friend over there is Michelle McCaig who, with hubby Ian, runs a rather impressive holiday apartments business-and very successfully too I might add. Having taken over ‘a bit of a business’ three years ago Michelle & Ian have invested heavily, overhauled completely and turned what wasn’t very desirable into the best ‘holiday let’ on the Algarve. Not only that but they will always go the ‘extra mile’ to ensure your stay is simply the best.
Trip Advisor has this to say:-
“Second visit to McCaigs holiday apartments and once again it didn’t disappoint. Had a great time, stayed in number 3 beside the pool, great location for all amenities, easy access to Albufiera and Villamoura

Pretty Impressive eh?
As more & more people book their own flights (massive £saving options out there trust me) we are finding more & more Brits setting up businesses and one of those Brits is Andy Taylor who runs “Between the Lines”, a superb restaurant set not too far away from “The Old House”
We can only pass on what others have said about the restaurant….. and I haven’t seen or heard a poor report about the place yet. Somehow I doubt that I will as Andy & Anne take great pride in ensuring their customers return time after time. Here’s one accolade from the comments section:
“we have eaten twice at this wonderful place – off the beaten track but the most amazing welcome and so very friendly – Andy and Anne so very accommodating – exceptionally clean place – beautifully cooked food – our favourite – the sticky ribs – kept going back for more and the hospitality out of this world – we will be back – thank you so much *****”
So folks, there you go! we have holiday lets, great pub music nights & top class restaurant lined up for you – all you need to do is to get yourselves over there on a plane! Simples
Could you fancy getting away from it all and utlising a ‘winter long let’? (our team have the contacts) “You name it……we can book it for you.” – and that is no idle boast either folks!
Busy nightlife in Albufeira
You see folks, having holidayed over there themselves in the past and now resident there, our “20-20”supporters saw the opportunties of settling there and making sure that ‘us Brits’ got the maximum out of time spent there-and there are plenty of Brits who have settled over there in their retirement styles! With the main airport, FARO, being only 40 minutes away it is only a few euro’s to get to you holiday destination.The same when you return home. In short, our three ‘muskateers’ can make your holiday everything you want it to be as they know the place back to front & inside out!
It doesn’t get much better than that folks and all we ask is that when you do contact them, whether by email or phone, please mention “20-20 Voice” Cancer so that they know who recommended you!
IMPORTANT: Becci has now agreed to become our official representative in Albufeira (she has the letter of approval from this charity) therefore should any of you over there want to try out/set up a fundraiser yourselves for “20-20 Voice” Cancer then please contact Becci and put your ideas forward – Simples!
