About Maria Helena

Hello. My name is Maria Helena. I am a bank retired woman 70 years old, married with a bank retired man too. We worked in Lisbon all the time. Had our children there. They have grown up and both are married now. We have 4 grandchildren. We like Lisbon but now we prefer the Algarve to live. No stress of the cities. Good sea to visit and to dive. People that think about holidays not about work. So we live now in Alvor - Algarve - Portugal. In the meanwhile we rent our properties. We are very careful with its quality and we love to hear that our clients, had a great holiday. In our accommodation. We are waiting for you too. Lena and Gil.

Maria Helena purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Maria Helena chose Portimao region

We bought this accommodation seven years ago.

In that time we thought only about investment.

I think everybody loves Alvor. Our clients never complained about noise what means that is a very quiet place.

What makes this apartment unique

This property has a fine style decoration. Everybody feels comfortable there. Do not forget that the distance to the center is 2 minutes walking.

Notes on accommodation: The fishing village of Alvor is situated on the estuary of the river, Rio Alvor. It is well known in Algarve history because King João II died in there in 1495. Although the earthquake wiped out most of the traditional Moorish village in 1755, you can still see remains of Alvor’s history in places such as the 16th century Igreja Matriz with its beautiful Manueline arches and pillars. Despite steady developments since the dawn of tourism in the 1960s (especially on the eastern side) the buildings are mainly low-rise and the charm of the old town with the narrow cobbled streets leading down to the harbour on the lagoon of the river estuary still remains. The riverfront in Alvor has been done up over recent years and is now fully paved and lined with palm trees and several beach bars, which all have plenty of outside seating for those endless summer days. The riverfront has to be one of Alvor’s most idyllic settings, as you sit and watch the fishing boats come and go. At the end, near Outside: Lovely balcony and a shared pool. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Clean service and towels and linen changed every week are included.

alluring alvor

  • 3 of 5

Arriving early morning to alvor turned out to be a good idea. We found our apartment easily enough with the help of a very friendly taximan. We contacted the owner/manager, who was with us in minutes and showed us to our accomadation. The apartment was basic but comfortable and as we soon found out, central to everything. Weloved the whole area , found the people and the food lovely and will definitly be returning.
