About Pedro Correia

The owners are Pedro and Isabel. For over 20 years they lived and worked abroad and are now back in Portugal. Travelling has always been a passion, as you will discover when you enter the house...

Pedro Correia purchased this villa in 2004

Why Pedro Correia chose Alvor

This property was constructed directly by us and decorated as a summer villa to be used by the family.

We love this village because it still retains the charm of an old fishing port but has enough modern amenities. The place is extremely beautiful with a very large sandy beach and close to the best spots in Algarve.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is fully equipped. It has a weekly cleaning service, air-conditioning and a garden with a barbecue. Fantastic roof terrace with good sea views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful decoration and location. Good value for money. Charming place.

Nice villa with a good sea view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in good weather. The house offers everything you need for a successful holiday and is ideally located between the city and the beach. You can almost do everything on foot. Especially beautiful is the view of the sea from all the sea facing rooms. Booking and arrangements were very straightforward and professional.

Amazing Villa!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful holiday staying here last October, they enjoyed it so much they are returning in August.

The villa is in the perfect location, only a short walk to the beach and the town, so there's no need to hire a car, or pay for taxis. Alvor has a fantastic selection of top quality restaurants, some of our favourites were Sereia, The Yacht Club and Windsurf.

Inside the villa exceeded all expectations, the rooms were bright and spacious and the master bedroom had a spectacular sea view from the balcony. The roof terrace was great for sunbathing, especially on a few days when it was a little windy on the beach!

I would definitely recommend this villa, it has everything you need for a great holiday. Thank you Isabel and Pedro.

Fantastic Holiday Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in Alvor. Villa Isabel was beautifully presented throughout, spacious comfortable bedrooms and the outside area was also very well presented. The roof top terrace is amazing !! The location of the villa is excellent so close to the beach and Alvor town centre, where there are some beautiful restaurants. We had previously stayed in villa Isabel in May 2016 for 1 week, loved it so much we had 2 weeks In 2017. The owners Pedro & Isabel are both very professional,helpful and informative. I would highly recommend this villa .It is a real gem.

Perfect holidays in a perfect house

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults and 4 Kids: 17, 15 and 14 years) enjoyed these holidays very, very much. This house is the perfect place to stay: very clean,so much space, and this fabulous roof terrace. Modern and large bathing rooms, perfect bed rooms, very nice area outside with an outdoor kitchen/barbecue place. Kitchen is complete with all stuff you need. On saturdays the cleaning women and the gardener come. We can defently recommend this Villa. It left nothing to be desired. Also the distance to the beach, supermarket and restaurants is perfect. To get in contact with Pedro was no problem and the description of how to get there was very good described. Thank you very much.

Fabulous property, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 weeks in this beautiful property. First time in Alvor....... Certainly won't be our last as we loved it!! The villa is much bigger than we thought and the photos don't really do it justice. Everything has been provided that you could possibly need for a very comfortable stay. Situated a 5 minute walk from the beach with a sea view from the roof top terrace. All arrangements and queries were handled promptly and politely by Isabel & Pedro. The housekeeper and her husband keep the property in immaculate condition indoors and outdoors. 5 minute walk to the marina or the town centre so no need for taxis apart from the day we went to Portimao. The only improvements we would suggest is another couple of sun loungers and a small table and chairs for the roof terrace as we enjoyed a few drinks and snacks in the evening while enjoying the last of the sunshine. Will definitely return to Alvor and to no. 14.
