About the property

This lovely apartment is a short 5 MINUTE WALK FROM THE BEACH, across the village's pleasant lawns - and there's actually an elevator in the cliff, if you don't feel like using the stairs to get to the beach! You will be able to choose one of the small sheltered beaches at the bottom of the cliff, with their caves and rock pools at low tide, or the big open beach of Lagos bay - 8 kms long, with the Ria de Alvor in the middle.

The apartment is spacious and comfortable: a vast living-room, full of light, opening onto a nice balcony (where you can peacefully enjoy the view and the sun, or dine al fresco), 2 bedrooms with good and confortable beds ( 1 kingsize bed and 2 single beds) and 3 generous wardrobes (all the bedrooms are very spacious and bright), 1 full bathroom and 1 WC, all with traditional Portuguese Azulejos on the walls. The decoration is in a modern, colorful, yet simple style. This 2 bedroom private flat, is located on a luxuary resort called "Aldeamento da Prainha", with 5 people capacity and tottaly furnished. It has air conditioning and private parking as well.

On the resort there are several shared pools (inside and outside), tennis courts, restaurants, bars, kid`s club, spa and beautiful gardens and surroundings.

Nearby out of the complex there are plenty of local bars, restaurants and shops. The resort is 1,5 kms from Alvor village, 2 kms from Praia da Rocha and Portimão and about 50 kms from Faro airport.

Lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely big apartment. Exceptionally clean with everything a family needs. Comfy beds, amazing Atlantic pool with great local facilities for families. Right on one of the best beaches (in our opinion). A particularly helpful owner. All in all a great stay and somewhere I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Thank you.

great value for money, suitable for families

  • 3 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Prainha. The owner was extremely helpful from the moment of booking until the end of the stay. The apartment was spotlessly clean, very well equipped and well furnished. The local supermarket was well stocked. We spent lazy days at the pool, which is in an idyllic location, set in a tree filled valley with outstanding views from the cliff. The cafe by the pool served great food and the staff were charming. We will certainly return and recommend this place to others, as good value for money.

Beautiful location near the beach

  • 5 of 5

The appartment is spacious and very well equiped. From the balcony you can see the sea. A 5 minute walk will bring you to the beach. There are various swimmingpools and everything is well looked after and clean.

The beach can be reached by stairs or an elevator and the restaurant on the beach has very good food. The location of the appartment is magnificent. We had a lovely time with our family of 5 (3 teenagers).

Duarte the owner had also been very helpfull whenever we had a question.

Great Location on the Beach and Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our adult children for two nights in April. Everyone loved the apartment. It was spacious and clean and nicely decorated, and our son was excited about doing some laundry (since this property had a washing machine inside the apartment). The property is right on the beach, and the beach is BEAUTIFUL! I highly recommend this property because of its location on the beach (which is why I selected it originally) and its spaciousness and cleanliness. When we were there, it was off season. I'd love to go back in the summer.

good location, good facilities

  • 4 of 5

a clean well-maintained property with very helpful staff. It was a shame that the wifi was so unreliable.

For Birding it is an ideal location and over 100 different species were seen.

The restaurant on the beach was very good but most other facilities closed on Nov.1st.
