Amazing honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

We're just back from our honeymoon and had a fantastic time. Derek made all the arrangements really easy for us and even provided a few special treats for our arrival which were greatly appreciated! The apartment is really clean, lots bigger than it looks in the photos and really private.

We had everything we needed in the apartment - fresh towels, bed linen, sun loungers, patio furniture, BBQ, huge fridge freezer...plus plenty of supermarkets nearby for food etc.

Maggie met us in Alvor (we didn't get too lost!) and led us the correct way to the apartment, and couldn't have been more helpful...giving taxi numbers etc...really lovely woman.

We were first-timers to Portugal and took great delight in exploring the seafood restaurants in Alvor (and a few pubs too of course!). We rented scooters from Praia de Rocha and headed out to the mountains and also went to Sagres which was really nice (very windy!). A great location to see lots of Portugal from and plenty to do if you just want to chill out. I really recommend the sunset champagne cruise that leaves from Alvor harbour.

Definitely recommend hiring a car if you're going at the height of summer heat. There's underground parking provided...it was too hot to walk any great distance so the car really got used even for short trips to the shops.

All in all a great place, we can't wait to come back for a second honeymoon soon!

Lovely apartment (that seems more like a house!)

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful holidays in a lovely apartment, simply decorated but with a very good taste.

A quiet place to spend holidays, far from noise and confusion and with a pleasant garden with a bbq!

Looking forward to coming back again!

We have had an amazing holiday, we had never been to Portugal and will definitely be coming back.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfectly placed we were 5 minutes away from a fabulous beach and restaurants in alvor by car. There was a small beach which you could walk to but we preferred the big beach, you are only 5 minutes away from praia de Rocha by car also brilliant. Magia was really lovely and helpful she let us in a bit earlier too as we had an early flight, she was very friendly. The apartment is large clean modern and really spacious great garden, cool too there are fans too. The facilities in the kitchen are 1st class. We have had a fab time thanks Magia and Derek xxxxx

Beautiful Apartment & Garden

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment in late May and had a great weeks stay. The apartment was bright, clean and spacious. We are a family of 4 and it was the perfect size for us. The kitchen is well equipped with all the utensils you would need.

We particular enjoyed the garden which has a patio with table and chairs, you could dine outside in the lovely peaceful setting. The bedrooms are a good size with good storage and the views from the small balcony are great.

From the apartment you can walk to the beach but we hired a car with local amenities all close by.

We will definitely be coming back and we highly recommend this apartment.

Amazing Apartment, Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Walking through the door, first impressions are that the property is better described as a house than an apartment. Situated in a lovely quiet community only 5-10 mins walk to the nearest beach. When the tide is right you csn walk from Praia du Vau all the way to Praia de Rocha, and back again...Beautiful beaches and scenery!

The apartment itself was very clean, with spacious living & dining area, fully equipped kitchen with all the appliances. The bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs also impressed. all with modern and tasteful decor. The main bedroom balcony was perfect for breakfast al-fresco while enjoying the ocean view.

The private garden is well kept and ensured we had our own space to relax in the sun, on the loungers provided, and the built in garden BBQ was a great feature for some beautiful sunset dining.

Free Wi-Fi and smart Samsung TV meant we could log into our Netflix account which I'm sure would be an added bonus for any families with young kids. There's also satellite TV with a selection of English speaking channels. The property somehow manages to keep comfortably cool without the help of air con. The temperature reached up to 32°C on our visit and the apartment was always a cool retreat from the sun.

The neighbouring town of Alvor is a must visit, fantastic restaurants and bars along the narrow cobblestone streets.

I would recommend hiring a car, as day trips to nearby Sagres & Lagos are well worth it. The underground parking ensures the car isn't baking in the days heat!

Can't recommend enough, this was our 3rd occasion staying here and we are eagerly looking forward to our 4th.

The overall impression was very good and the garden was lovely. I

  • 4 of 5

The only negatives were it could have been abit cleaner in certain places. There was dirty pans, knives and forks and cupboards could have done with a wipe over. It's the sort of thing that in your own home you know it's your dirt but in someone else's home you find offensive. Also the tv didn't have any info. Otherwise it's such a great place.

Alvor is a small fishing village 5 kms west of Portimão and only 40 minutes from Faro airport. If you are looking for a traditional unspoilt location, for a peaceful holiday, with fantastic beaches, then this is the place to come. The traditional cottages, cobbled streets & picturesque harbour area give Alvor its unique charm & quaintness. Today Alvor is renowned for its superb beaches; the best sandy beaches in the Algarve. The area is a golfer’s paradise with the Championship course at Penina, Alto & Gramacho all within a 5-10 minute drive & over 25 top class courses within one hours drive. You could try the jeep safari into the Monchique mountain range or the international marinas at Lagos & Portimao. There are a number of historic places worth a visit including Lagos, Silves & Loule. Also there are water parks & the marine zoo nearby. For those seeking late night action Praia de Rocha is a 5 minute taxi drive (approx€5) & has casinos and lots of late night bars & discos.
