We have stayed in quite a few apartments in Alvor and this is def the best. It is our second stay here and was just as great as we remembered. Very modern and spotlessly clean, in the perfect location. The roof terrace and pool area is so peaceful with amazing views. Francisca is lovely and very helpful. Hopefully be available for next visit! Thank you Stephen and Sam.

Such a beautiful apartment, great location in the centre of the village. Perfect for a couple, clean and modern. Francisco was brilliant and met us as soon as we arrived to let us in and show us around. Payment was also quick and easy, thank you Sam and Stephen for a wonderful stay.

Love this apartment it's clean airy and light. Perfect location so you don't need a car. Would be useful to have a couple of things such as washing up liquid and salt and pepper but overall great! Will be booking again if available when visiting Alvor

Bright, modern apartment in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed twice now in this lovely apartment and we plan to stay again. It is always spotlessly clean, comfortable and in a perfect location in the heart of Alvor. The spacious terrace has a sea view and the roof terrace (with pool) has panoramic views of the town and beyond. Our only hesitation recommending this apartment is that it may become so busy it limits availability for us!! Joking aside, in our view it is perfect and we look forward to staying here again.

The closest is Alvor beach which is a mere 10 minute walk away - a 3km long sandy beach with rock formations on the eastern side. There are great beaches up and down the coast from a short drive, including Praia da Rocha, Praia da Vau and Lagos.


Fly to Faro-Alvor is 65km from the airport. Bmibaby, BA, Easyjet, first choice, jet 2, Monarch and Ryanair all fly from England. Many car hire companies operate from Faro airport. Auto Jardin also have an office in Praia da Rocha (4 mile from Alvor) where you can drop off car and get taxi to Alvor. Buses from Alvor to Faro can be found. They also run from Faro airport. Or book a shuttle bus or taxi from Faro airport. Polotur (on web) provide an excellent private bus transfer service


The apartment is only a stones throw from Alvor village. The Western Algarve stretches from Lagoa to Sagres along the south coast. The region covers the beautiful west coast and the Costa Vicentina National Park. The coastline is characterized by dramatic rock formations with stacks and stumps, grotto's and caves and the beautiful, clean sandy beaches and coves. There are many interesting towns along the way.

Further Details:

Alvor is a very popular holiday location, the enclosed narrow streets have kept development to a minimum. There are gift shops, banks, internet cafes and all amenities close by. Nearby 'Continente' at Portiamo Retail Park is recommended for grocery shopping. At night, the cobbled streets boast bars with live music and many different types of restaurants, but leading off from these there are still memories of the older fishing village. The village is well located facing a natural lagoon opening onto the sea. There is a choice of a long open sandy beach or a number of small coves tucked under the cliffs.

For nightlife lovers, the lively atmospheres of Alvor and Praia da Rocha will be ideal for you.

The west coast is a protected area with miles of unspoilt beaches meeting the Atlantic breakers which make it such a popular area for surfers.

Alvor is a haven for golfers with many nearby top class golf courses.
