Lovely house with a beautiful garden

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Casa Monchique. We were a party of 7 adults. Very near to the town centre and the beach. Enough towels and beachtowels. House very clean at arrival. Lamps that were not working were repaired the same day.

We loved restaurant Restinga Praia where we had lunch/dinner a couple of times. When staying at Alto Club you get discount on the beds at the beach.

Thank you very much for an unforgettable stay.

Good family accommodation

  • 3 of 5

We have stayed in villa 1 many times and enjoyed each stay. It was a great shame that the hot tub was not working for both this stay and our previous stay. All reported issues were dealt with very quickly by Steve and Elizabeth, but unfortunately the BBQ gas ran out as we turned it on and a new one was not delivered until the next day! We were very comfortable in the villa, but maybe could have done with another linen change (1 in 12 days). These things would certainly not stop us coming back to villa 1. There were a lot of ants but plenty of ant powder available to treat this.

ideally situated villa in perfect surroundings

  • 4 of 5

This was the second year we have stayed at villa 1 .I stayed here with my daughter her husband and my granddaughter as well as my son. The accommodation in the villa was perfect with each having our own rooms and bathrooms. It is generally well equipped as well as being within walking distance of the beach and the town. Elizabeth and Steve were very responsive to emails and the property was clean. I would definitely recommend this property and will hopefully be returning again next year. Alvor is perfect for families with young children and the bars and restaurants welcoming. I can recommend Shenanigans bar and Lusitania restaurant

Great place

  • 4 of 5

2 families with young children, stayed here for 2 weeks. Lovely, clean, spacious accommodation, great onsite facilities. Agent in Alvor was very helpful. Within 15min walking distance from the amazing beach and centre of Alvor with its fabulous restaurants and bars. Also used airport transfer arranged via accommodation, reasonably priced and good service. Overall a brilliant holiday and would definitely come back to this villa.
