About the Owner
We are a married couple with three grown up children. A few years ago we decided we wanted to buy a property abroad and Portugal was our preferred choice. At the same time my brother and his wife were also interested in purchasing abroad so we agreed to pool our resources and buy an apartment together.
From the Owner
“We had all spent a lot of time in Portugal, around Alvor and Lagos mainly and these were the two areas we considered. A work colleague of my husband had purchased an apartment in the Alto Club and we decided to rent this for a week in 2006. We were very impressed by the apartment and the complex. At this time there were no apartments for sale in the Alto Club, but one became available at the end of the year and we decided to buy it. We chose the Alto Club for many reasons, the apartments are all very spacious, the complex is very well maintained and also for it's location at the edge of the village of Alvor. It is not necessary to hire a car. It is also only 45 minutes from the airport.”

From the Owner
“We try and visit the Alto Club as much as possible as it is a lovely location. The grounds are very well maintained at all times. The complex has lots of amenities, e.g. indoor and outdoor pool, tennis courts, gym, beauty salon, games room, poolside bar, restaurant and much more. A huge advantage is the closeness of the apartment to the village, it is great to be able to walk into the village in the evening for a drink or a meal. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. There is a beautiful beach within a 15 minute walk, where the Alto Club have an area with beds and umbrellas for the use of their guests. We provide all bath and pool towels which a lot of our guests say is a great help when packing!”
