Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 2 Baths w/ Superb Sea/Estuary Views, 5 Mins Walk to the Beach

Clube Alvor Ria is a superior complex by the harbor in the fishing village of Alvor.

The location of the complex is prime, I would add, unbeatable in Alvor, offering amazing views and in the village. You will be in 2 minutes walking distance from a mini-market opened until midnight and also 5 minutes to the sea. The apartment is 203 (1st floor) in Bloc A, the best, because you have an open view to the sea and Ria estuary.

The apartment is in a very good state of preservation, with new and recent furniture to a high standard. Still, it has a personal touch, making it more familiar to our Guests, with all the expected amenities. There are also 2 bathrooms (social and suite), to give more privacy and comfort.

Bedroom: spacious, with 2 twin beds than can join into a double bed, with 2 nightstands, a dresser with a mirror, and a built-in wardrobe with drawers. It is also equipped with an iron, a board and a clothes drying rack.

Living room: 3 seat sofa that can turn into a 2 pax sofa-bed. There is also 1 single seat sofa. The dining area has a table with 4 chairs.

Kitchen: fully equipped with all the appropriate machines, including hob, oven, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, kettle, dishwasher and washing machine. All these machines are very well kept. It also has a first aid box, a fire extinguisher, and a fire blanket.

Balcony: with a rest chair and a wooden table + 4 wooden chairs, where you can have your meals or relax in the sun. The views are breathtaking.

It has dedicated WiFi access (data limit up to 6.5 GB) and alternative provided by a public network.

It has also individual air-conditioning in both the bedroom and living room, allowing you to customize at each time your own definition of “comfort”.

The apartment is licensed for rental purpose as "Alojamento Local", having been inspected by the local authorities and complying with all the security requirements.

About João Portela

I am 50 years and live in Parede (Cascais) with my wife, 2 children (14 & 10 years) and 1 dog. We love to travel, mostly outside Portugal, but because my wife is an Azores native, we usually spend our summer there, in Pico Island, where nature is still so close to heaven. But we always keep our time in our long-term hidden-gem secret in Algarve, Clube Alvor Ria!

João Portela purchased this apartment in 2008

Why João Portela chose Alvor

While in continental Portugal, we simply love Alvor because it is such an unique and hidden gem among the almost crowded Algarve. Apart for the great conditions provided by the apartment and the complex itself, we are always vanished by the views and the location. Forget the car, park it in the garage and just walk: to the beach, to the pedestrian sidewalk along the ria, with its wooden bars, to the restaurants and mini-markets (hot bread until 10pm). We love our apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is just five minutes walk from the wide and fabulous Alvor beach. If you prefer to stay in the complex, enjoy the pool while resting in our 4 long-chairs. If you love tennis, there is 2 public courts just opposite to the complex and you can access 5 golf courses on a 5/10 minutes car ride.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 months at this property and it was as if my comfortable home in Canada was transported to Alvor. The apartment was so comfortable and nice that I could'nt help but feel like I was at home. The apartment is within walking distance to everything. There is even a Bus 5 min walk away that will take you into the larger city Portimao. I sincerely thank Joao fo allowing us the use of this lovely apartment.

Location,quality, and wide choice of restaurants, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Alvor many times, but were unable to go to our usual place, so we booked into a one bedroomed apartment. The location was stunning, everything on your doorstep yet secluded from the crowds or noise. The place was roomy well kitted out with comfortable beds and furniture. Balcony faced the sun most of the day and the views of lovely sunsets was the highlight of the day. Will definitely be going back here. We had great service form the owner, with good information sent to our email.
