Space 2,314 sq. ft.
Property type villa

About the property

6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms in the heart of Alvor with sea and mountain view.

We came to a crossroads. It led us to Alvor.

We fell instantly in love with this beautiful, charming, picturesque fishing village, with its perfect location close to sea and countryside and the Monchique mountains 30 minutes away - right on the Algarve coast, offering the best all year climate in Europe.

In Alvor life is pleasant. 115 restaurants offer everything you could wish for. The stunningly beautiful Alvor Beach is just one golf shot away. Shops, golf courses, tennis, fitness, horseback riding, walk ways, water sports, etc. are close. In Portimao, 5 km away, you can still your big shopping desire.

But Alvor is also the optimal destination for those seeking the quiet, refreshing holiday. You can go out to the market hall or bakery in the morning and buy your fresh fruit, fish and bread. You enjoy your breakfast to the sound of birds chirping and the waves rolling onto the beach.

Here, we wanted to create a home that met our highest standards of comfort and quality. The result is "The Birds Nest", a modern town house in the very center and with everything Alvor offers on the doorstep.

"The Birds Nest" offers 12 people a 5-star accomodation with its 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, patio with barbecue, large terraces. Hot tub, pergola, outdoor kitchen with gasol barbecue on the roof top terrace, with stunning views in all directions against sea, countryside and mountains.

"The Birds Nest" is best suited for responsible adults due to its three floors, marble stairs and high terraces.

Fully equipped kitchen (american freezer, induction hob, dish washer, microwawe, espresso machine, coffee maker, toaster, mixer, kettle and more). Kitchen/dinner table seating 8.

Separate laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer.

Living room with leather sofas, 55" Samsung Smart TV, sound system, Apple TV. Bio Ethanol fire place. Wifi.

4 en suite bedrooms, 3 with twin beds and one with Queen size bed. 2 bed rooms sharing one bath room.

Under floor heating with separate thermostats in all rooms including bath rooms. A/C units in all rooms. Central vacuuming.

Patio with barbecue and marble cafe tables. Large sliding doors from kitchen and living room connect the patio to one large common living area.

Fantastic Townhouse - Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an amazing week at the Birds Nest in Alvor with my family of 8 ranging from age 14 to 73. The location is perfect as it is on a quiet street but only a few hundred yards from all of the bars, cafes and restaurants and also very close to the waterfront and beaches. The accommodation is spotless, brand new and no expense has been spared in kitting it out from top to bottom. The kitchen is large and has everything (and more) that you could possibly need. They have thought of everything. Laundry room a blessing! (They even provide beach towels). Bedrooms and bathrooms are gorgeous. The 4 upstairs bedrooms are larger than the two downstairs and have mini fridges with complimentary wine and water. The Swan suite with private terrace is gorgeous which was an afternoon sun trap but there is also a balcony for the morning sun. The rooftop views are lovely watching the sunset and 360 degree views from the comfort of the hot tub. We had a few BBQs up there and some great nights up there. I would definitely recommend this place for a large extended family or groups of couples (but not young children due to marble stairs). There is so much space that you can find solitude if you wish but congregate in one of the terraces if you wish. Loved it.

The Bird's Nest is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 families stayed at The Bird's Nest for 7 days. It accommodated 9 of us beautifully. It is modern and so well laid out - we had so much space for the nine of us. It has everything you require to cook, clean, relax, etc. It has 4 great outside spaces as well. It is so well-situated within Alvor - you can easily walk to a restaurants, pubs, the beach or the markets. The owners are helpful and very responsive and if you have any questions during your stay Sonia is readily available to help. I can highly recommend The Bird's Nest. We are already discussing returning next summer.

Lyxigt, hemtrevligt och avkopplande

  • 5 of 5

Ett lyxigt, modernt och hemtrevligt inrett boende med alla faciliteter och rum i tre våningar. Här finns flera terrasser. Takterrassen med jacuzzi bjuder på vacker utsikt över Alvor och havet. Läget är lugnt och utan störande ljud nattetid.

Vi uppskattade att kunna gå och köpa färska varor till bageri och saluhall inför frukosten. Staden bjuder på ett stort utbud av restauranger och underhållning, allt på gångavstånd.

Vi gillade promenaderna till den vidsträckta och fantastiska sandstranden.

Rekommenderas varmt!

It´s a magnificent villa in the midst of Alvor!

  • 5 of 5

A very clean house with very generous space and excellent standards. The bubble pool on the roof with the wonderful view over the sea gives a spa-luxury added!

Nice seawalks, beach swims and golf was all great. Fresh bread from bakery, and fruit from the market was a perfect start ogf the day. Good restaurants and more locals than tourists added to the flavour. I can gladly recommend it.
