About Jenny

Owners that love Alvor

Jenny purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Jenny chose Portimao region

We had been to Alvor a few time and loved the beach and the village but we could not find accommodation we were happy with, until we stayed in Villa Da Praia. We just loved it...... We had never thought buying an apartment abroad before but, we fell in love with Alvor and then the complex.

Buying the apartment was one of the best decision we ever made. The old fishing village charm, yet busy and bustling atmosphere and the super restaurants. The beach must be one of the best in Europe. to sit in one of the beach Bars and watch the sun set, is heaven to us. Over the years we have made so many friends, so every visit for us is a gathering of friends, from Scotland, England, Ireland and Portugal.

What makes this apartment unique

Location, Location Location, we are just 3 minute walk to the center of Alvor village and a 5 minute walk to the beach. All apartments in the complex are privately owned and the owners are very particular, so the complex grounds and the swimming pool with the shady palm trees are very well maintained.

Our apartment is very comfortably furnished, we visit regularly and keep the apartment up to a good standard. We have a balcony that get evening sun and this is where we sit and watch the world go by on a evening. We have a full bathroom, sitting room/dining area with WIFI, double bedroom and our kitchen that over looks the courtyard. We just love it and we get a lot of repeat business so we must be doing something right.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a note as it's our last evening in Alvor. The sun is still blazing down, no breeze and it's very hot. We've really enjoyed our first visit to Portugal. Your info pack was great. Buganvilia was such good value and great food. We did it twice along with the chicken place and Vagabondo.

We have very much enjoyed staying in your apartment. It's so clean and comfortable with everything you could need. The washer has saved us from having to bring 2 suitcases. The location is terrific. The pool is really great. Joana was lovely when she met us. Thank you so much for all your help. We would have no hesitation in staying here again.

Excellent Holiday Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Hi Jenny

Thanks for a lovely holiday in your comfortable apartment, we found it very convenient for the great boardwalk , restuarants and shops.

Special thanks to your residential manager Joanna, daughters Claudia and the wonderful Suzie for helping us out with our predicament. To explain this further - driving from Faro Airport in our hired car we were hit by a reckless motorist who did not stop. Resulting in this we were very shaken and in a state of shock on the first day of our holiday. We were given so much help from Suzie and her husband ( on his day off from work ! ) in finding the appropriate Police Office and reporting the occurence . If Suzie had not helped us with this it could have proved to be very difficult. Again many thanks for the personal attention we received.

Luckily the rest of the time spent in Alvor was great and we much enjoyed our time in Lisbon afterwards.

Hope to return another time.

Excellent apartment in great location.

  • 4 of 5

It is a very comfortable and well-equipped apartment in great location, just a short stroll into the centre of Alvor and the beach. Alvor itself is the perfect location: a traditional fishing village which maintains an authentic atmosphere whilst offering superb facilities for visitors.

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely apartment, so close to the beach and loved the large swimming pool. Spoilt for choice with the nearby restaurants.

The apartment has everything you need for a self catering break... Would recommend 100% and thank you Jenny for all your helpful advice and the information pack... Weather perfect too ☀️
