About The Owner

We discovered Alvor sixteen years ago and have dreamt about owning a property there ever since. Having finally taken the plunge, we are thrilled to own such a beautiful property in a superb location and recommend our second home to you. As one of us is an avid golfer, we can thoroughly endorse Alto Golf as a golf course and the surrounding area for fabulous food and superb sandy beaches

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009

Why The Owner chose Alvor

Alto Golf & Country Club has something for everyone - golf, swimming, leisure nearby beaches and restaurants to die for. The new motorway has made the Western Algarve more accessible and is recommended for families and couples alike.

What makes this apartment unique

Discounted golf at Alto and also currently at the other Pestana owned courses on the Algarve. This apartment is in the closest block to Alto Golf Clubhouse and benefits from being less isolated.

Unlike several others in this resort, this apartment is fully licenced and consequently is compliant with Health and Safety regulations.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We would just like to thank you very much for your hospitality. The apartment was great and had everything we needed and more. We would definitely like to return at some point. Thanks again for making the whole trip's organisation very simple. Paul McCaughey & party

Back to reality with a bang!! We had a wonderful week at your apt, it's in a wonderful location overlooking the golf course. We will be in touch for sure in the future. The Daltons (June 2011)

Thanks for asking if all OK, and to reiterate all was FANTASTIC! I would have no hesitation in recommending your apartment to friends and family. (Rutherford party October 2012)

We really enjoyed staying at the Alto golf apartment.It was very clean and nicely furnished,and with superb views over the golf course.. We hired a car ,although it was only a ten minute walk to our favourite beach where there were several good restaurants.

It was lovely to relax with a glass of wine on the balcony and watch the golfersand the beautiful sunsets.

We would certainly recommend this apartment.😀

At Alto you are near some of the best beaches in the Algarve. Praia do Vau, Prainha and Praia do Alvor offer superb sand and bathing and nearly every village along the Algarve coast has its own piece of beach heaven. For a real treat, venture up the west coast towards Aljezur and you will find more secluded but mind-blowingly beautiful beaches such as Monte Clerigo where you will be amazed at the clarity of the Atlantic water washing up at your feet.


The A22 toll motorway runs along virtually the full length of the Algarve from Faro Airport. On leaving the airport, follow the signs for Portimao and once you have picked up the A22 continue until you see the Alvor sign. Once you have placed a booking, we will give you full directions. The journey is around 45 minutes in a hire car or you can usually pick up a taxi (around £50) at the airport. If you require a transfer, please let us know and we can make arrangements for you.


We recommend hiring a car for your stay to give you access to the best beaches, restaurants and supermarkets. Alvor village can be walked in 30 minutes (downhill there, taxi back!) and Portimao is 3km in the other direction. Other places of interest nearby are the old town of Lagos and its beautiful marina (20 mins drive), Monchique (40 mins) and Sagres also 40 minutes away. There is a good local bus service and taxis are readily available.

Further Details:

It's hard to recommend the fishing village of Alvor highly enough. There is a restaurant for every taste and you could eat in a different fish restaurant for every day in your stay. The delightful street Rua Federico Mendez leads down to the fishing harbour and has eateries from top to bottom where you will find the locals barbecuing your freshly caught meal. In the apartment, you will find details of some of our favourites together with a location map.

Closer to 'home', breakfast and lunch is available at the Clubhouse in the bar area and there a smaller selection of cafes at Praia do Vau. There are several supermarkets in Portimao (Continente nearest) and a number of smaller shops offering the essentials in Alvor. It is worth using the bigger supermarkets at least once in your stay as things like water, beer and wine are substantially cheaper.

Cash machines are readily available in Alvor and accept a wide variety of credit and debit cards. The locals do speak English widely but really appreciate it if you try to speak a little bit of Portuguese in return!!
