New developments near albufeira

In Uncategorized on May 16, 2008 by cubsur51

This will be the last update from Albufeira for a few weeks.
A few days ago I took a walk around two of the mega developments taking shape just outside town. For those of you who may not know the area too well, the map shows the approximate locations of the Eden Resort and opposite the development of Quinta da Bolota. The distinctive eye-shaped building of the AHETA is across the road; the road to Ferreiras and the Health Centre are at the bottom of the hill.
Dozens of acres of countryside are soon to be lost at the Eden resort (the first pictures) as building is proceeding apace. Local taxi drivers will be rubbing their hands in glee, as this development is at the top of a very steep hill about a mile from the centre of town.
But opposite is the Quinta da Bolota. The site is gradually returning to nature! Not a brick has been laid since the site was set out nearly a year ago. The shoddily built roads and drains are collapsing. Wildflowers grow in abundance – why not talk a walk up there if that’s your thing. Opposite, on the northern side, is Clube Albufeira. only a narrow valley separates the two.
But they have missed a bit .But, given the greed that pervades the local authorities, developers etc there will soon not be much green left hereabouts. Make the most of it while you can!
