About the property

Apartment in Alvor, Western Algarve, Portugal 15 to 20 mins Walk to the Beach

Alvor is a small fishing village in the Algarve with plenty to offer, from a long sandy beach to a variety of shops, restaurants and golf courses. A holiday in Alvor is ideal for those seeking a relaxing holiday, be it sitting outdoors in one of the many cafés or going for long walks on the beach and estuary, with its variety of wildlife. Portimao is the nearest town (5km) and there are buses running from the main square every half an hour. This property is positioned in the heart of Alvor, right on the main square, where most of the banks are located, the taxi rank, the buses, pharmacy, newsagents and cafes. The apartment is modern, cosy and with plenty of natural light. It's ideal for couples or couples with one child.

A great little gem of an apartment!

  • 5 of 5

A very clean and comfortable apartment that ticked all the boxes in the overview. Fantastic location for everything that Alvor has to offer. Would definitely recommend and hope to stay there again. Susana very helpful before we left as was the lady who met us at the other end... The free WIFI was also a bonus.

Fantastic apartment & superb location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment! It was very comfortable & well equipped - spotlessly clean and well maintained.

Having access to wifi was a major plus.

The owners (Susana & Stefan) are extremely accommodating, friendly and efficient.

Unrivalled location in the heart of beautiful Alvor - the beach is a short stroll away and the restaurants/pubs are right on your doorstep. We would have no hesitation recommending it to friends.

Everything right

  • 4 of 5

Everything was right. Good apartment. Maybe it would be nice to indicate the number of the street to avoid get lost but it was easy to find it finally.
