Guestbook comments from the owner

We liked your apartment so much we would like to go back next year. The apartment was stunning, the cleanliness and service was excellent and the peace and tranquillity surrounding the place was out of this world. To cap it all we found the Algarve; and Alvor in particular, absolutely brilliant. I look forward to hearing from you. Best regards Nigel Robinson

We have just returned (husband and 3 boys)from a very enjoyable stay at your lovely apartment. It was both spacious and very well equipped and lived up to your description if not in some cases surpassed it as was the case of you large west facing terrace over the 10th fairway , a fab place to dine or to hang out and read a book. The pool was great and your neighbours especially Pablo were really nice, especially to my boys. The location was great and in 5 minute drive from Alvor and some truly spectacular beaches (advised from the locals!) .Georgina & Brian Goff

Even better than expected

We were very impressed with the specifications and photos of the property and it certainly lived up to them - and beyond!

Very well kept and in a beautiful location too.

The whole planning was helped by excellent communication with the owner.

Great trip, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a trip to Alto Golf and had a really great trip. The apartment is perfect and really spacious, with a huge balcony off the main bedroom and living area, which overlooks the golf course. The resort itself is in a great location, about 5 minutes drive to a number of large supermarkets and Alvor beach. Praia do Vau is a slightly closer beach, but we preferred Alvor.

Would highly recommend Huw's apartment to friends and family and would like to thank Huw for all his help prior to our trip. Definitely will go back!

Alto Golf , in Alvor Portugal

Alto Golf

  • 5 of 5

It is a lovely and very comfortable apartment in a very relaxing setting. The appartment is impecibly maintained and very clean. The owners have thought of everything in the information that they give to you on the apartment. I would recommend it highly.

A car is needed. We know the area very well as it is our 10th visit to alvor and it is by far the nicest apartment. Restaurants I would recommend are Tasc Mauris , casa De mar both in alvor.

Lovely Alvor with a great place to stay:)

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Alvor many many times before so were looking for a place to use for our next trip and found this one. Great apartment, well furnished with pool just 1 min walk (if that) from the back door. If you want a busy clubhouse, on site entertainment and hundreds of people to play with then you will need to look elsewhere. If you like it quiet and peaceful then this is the place for you. Liked the two terraces, front has great views over the golf course and rear onto the lawns and garden. It doesn't natter if you don't play golf this place is a great base as Alvor is only a 5 min drive and so is the beach. We had a great holiday and will definitely be returning. I would say that you need a car to stay here or rely on taxis but as the Algarve has so much to offer and Alvor puts you not far away from most things so worth getting out and about.

Dolphin Safari - Sagres 1 hour saw Dolphins and Orcas

Splash and Slide - Portimao 15 mins great water park lots if fun

Zoological Park - Lagos -30 mins - great little zoo

Monchique 25 mins - great mountains/town to cool down in

And so much more.

Owners were great, very helpful looking forward to going back :)

E2D Silvestre, Alto Golf

  • 5 of 5

The location of E2D is idyllic and exactly as described in all the references, parallel to the tenth fairway and 300yards from the clubhouse. We have stayed here at varying times throughout the year on ten occasions over the past decade. There is so much to do, the most breath-taking coastal walks accompanied with wonderful restaurants and bars that are all very reasonably priced for a family.

The Portuguese welcome is first rate and the private pool is a tranquil luxury with the grounds and apartment maintained to an impeccable standard. We would recommend any of the Alvor restaurants as this is certainly not a kiss-me-quick destination and for the ultimate dining experience you must try the Canicao restaurant in the Praihina Resort. We will be back many more times!

alvor( alto golf}

  • 5 of 5

Went with my grown up children and partners for a week in June 2014, Organising the stay was straight forward and Hew was very helpful and accmodating The apartment is spacious and spotless (which is always top of my list ) The kitchen is well fitted and the apartment has outside furniture front and back so you can dine out in either sun or shade. It has a safe for valubles and the apartment itself is very secure. The pool was welcome for a dip when warmest but is smallish. We had it to ourselves in June which was lovely.

A neighbour who lives there permanently was there to check everything was OK and sorted a minor issue out speedily. It was reassuring if you are thinking of booking here to know that this care is provided.

I cannot fault this apartment and would recommend it.

It is on the golfing site so ideal if your a golfer. You do need a car

if you stay here as a bit away from ALVOR itself but taxis are cheap.

we had a lovely time and felt at home in this place. Would definetely go again.

From the Owner

We both fell in love with the Algarve during holidays in the late ninetees and after several years of research we decided on the less spoilt Western Algarve and Alvor for purchasing our holiday home. Because of the keen interest in golf we wanted to be on a golf course, as well as close to the sea and access to a village with restaurants, bars etc. There are so many different beaches and great cliff top walks on our doorstop. We bought off plan in 2002. On every visit we are amazed how Alvor has transformed itself from a working fishing harbour into a classy fishing village resort. Just like in the UK Cycling is also becoming more popular on the Algarve and as a bonus the area between Alvor and the Monchique mountains boasts the best cycling on the Algarve.

From the Owner

You rarely see apartments as large or as well spaced out like this one. Having both a front balcony as well as a rear garden terrace means that you can have sun or shade at any time of the day. We are between the fishing village of Alvor and the busy resort of Praia Da Rocha, as well as close to the facilities of Portimao so everything is close at hand. We have continually refurbished the apartment since 2002 and we are really please to have so many regular guests who return regularly to enjoy the apartment and the area just as we do.
