What an apartment

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned home from a fantastic 1 week stay in this wonderful apartment. The apartment had everything we needed including a small private pool on the roof terrace. The location of the apartment is absolutely perfect being in the centre of the beautiful village of Alvor. We found the owners agent Heike to be so helpful explaining the workings of the apartment to us fully even taking her time to explain how the electrical appliances in the kitchen worked. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean with wonderful views of the ocean. We would most definitely be back to this apartment and would certainly recommend it to family and friends.

Great winter let

  • 5 of 5

We spent two months in this lovely apartment and it was just as advertised on the website. The apt. is very conveniently located in the pleasant village of Alvor and offered us all the amenities we needed for our stay. The sea view from the balcony was amazing and even more impressive from the roof top terrace. The apt. has very efficient inverter heaters and we were very cozy and comfortable during the few cooler days of February and early March. We would highly recommend this apt; as well, the owner is very approachable and helpful in every way.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment in April. It's a lovely apartment with every amenity you could ask for making it a real home from home. It is in one of the best areas in Alvor if you want to be close to the town. There is also a nice, private pool area on the roof although it's only a short 10 minute stroll to the wonderful beach Both the owner and agent were really helpful and friendly. We will definitely book again!

Property spotless and in a central location with short walk to beach or local bars and restaurants. Would recommend this apartment to others and found information provided by owner on owners direct site accurate and informative. The owners agent Heike was extremely helpful and pleasant and was only a phone call away if required. Would definitely book this apartment again and Alvor is one of our favourite places to holiday in due to its family friendly amenities.
