About Sandra Saville

We are a sixty something couple who fell in love with Alvor several years ago. We now have our own apartment there and would love for you to stay there and see the many delights of Alvor and hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Sandra Saville purchased this apartment in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved :-

The good supply of towels-particularly the big bath sheets

The big balcony- great for sitting out for sun bathing and eating, and the views-especially the sun sets, the pool and the sea.

Instant and plentiful supply of hot water

The space

The air con

The two sets of keys really useful for us

Everything was spotlessly clean and we really felt at home there. If you would like us to give you a quote to use in your marketing we would be more than happy, as long as it doesn't become so popular that we can't get in.

Allison Oct 2010

Your apartment is well situated within the complex and is well equipped. We have already recommended it to 3 other couples that we met whilst on holiday.

Steve & Chris Sept 2010

we loved your apartment.

I think Alvor is the best resort on the Algarve.

I think Vila da Praia is probably the best complex in Alvor.

I think your apartment is one of the best in the whole complex.

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

Great apartment with views of the sunset each evening. Every thing on hand to make it a home from home. I would have given 5 stars but purely as a personal preference I like mattresses to be a little less firm. Perhaps a mattress protector with a slight padding would have been better for me. It was quite chilly at night and a blanket for single bed size would have been appreciated. However we managed!!

Alvor’s wonderful sandy beach is 4km long, unspoilt and amongst the best in the world and only 300m from our apartment. It has about half a dozen well placed beach bar/restaurants. Water sports are available at the quite end of the beach and kite surfing is very popular.


Faro Airport is a 45 mins drive to Alvor. We can advise on transport to and from the airport on request.


300 metres to beach, 3 minutes walk to Alvor centre with bars and restaurants, 15 mins drive to the water park Slide and Splash, 25 mins drive to the fabulous Oceanic Park Zoo Marine, a short taxi ride from nearby Praia de Rocha (we have walked this), 10 mins drive to Portimao and 15 mins drive to Lagos which both have great shopping areas with designer shops and for golf lovers is in close proximity to 12 different golf courses all within 30 mins drive.

Further Details:

Sports: tennis in town, water sports, water park, golf less than 15 mins walk, fishing.

Great for walking holidays, beach relaxation, a winter sun break, good night life (fabulous restaurants and a couple of Alvor centre bars have great live bands). Cycling holidays.
