About the Owner

This property has been in the family for a few years and we have decided to rent it out. We have not done this before and the property is in excellent condition and has everything you would want for a stay in Spain set in beautiful surroundings and the golf course is well worth playing.

A Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from spending a short break in Portugal, and chose this apartment. I must say this property is without doubt one of the nicest you could wish for. Every amenity you need, spotless in every way, VERY convenient for local shops and beach, and Reception Staff first class. Had a most enjoyable stay here and I would recommend this Apartment without hesitation. A lot of thought has been put into furnishing this property to a very high standard, with Tv sets in lounge and 1 Bedroom, DVD player and stereo, outside area includes a BBQ and sitting area with table and chairs. Thank You Mike & Mitzi for all your help.

Alto Country Club apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed a week in this apartment in August 2013, two seniors and three grandchildren 17 - 11 age group. We had a fabulous time, walk to beach, village. Good facilities on site, an oasis of green, established trees etc. The apartment was clean and well fitted, very comfortable in fact. Quiet too. We are considering repeating the experience 2015 which says it all.

Perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my partner on the 19th may to the 24th.

This has honestly been one of the best holidays I have been on.

Weather was beautiful and the town only a short walk away.

Apartment was perfect. Very spacious and clean and 2 bathrooms which is a massive bonus when there are 6 of you there. The supermarket is just around the corner and offers a wide range of food. The BBQ is a brilliant amenity if you don't want to dine out every evening. The resort itself is gorgeous with an indoor and outdoor pool and the activities there are great. I loved it here so much that I have already booked up again to go in October. The people are very friendly and it is such a safe complex I would have no issue at all taking children. Highly recommend if you want a relaxing holiday!

From the Owner

This property is set in a beautiful complex close to town and the beach it offers everything you could ask for in a holiday location. On site it has enough to keep you happy in winter and summer. It is just brilliant.

Activity and Interests


The Western Algarve is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with golden sandy beaches and beautiful protected nature reserves and mountains. The summers always hot and sunny, and perfect for lazing around doing very little! The spring and autumn are often described as being the best time to visit the Algarve when the the flora and fuana are at their most vivid. Whenever you visit you must take a stroll down to Alvors beach it is absolutely stunning. With beach bars and loungers available


Fly to Faro, 40 minutes away, or Lisbon, 2 hours by motorway. Cheap flights are available from most airports. Be aware that the Motorways now have Tolls on them so the N125 (from Faro) is the cheaper route but will take 15 mins longer. You get to see more than the A22. There are good transfers available but a hire car would give you more flexibility but no way essential.


Alvor town 5 mins walk, you can book trips to the water parks (slide and splash) about 20 mins away, as is the zoo/marine. Fishing trips from Alvor sea front.

All specialist trips can be booked within a 5 minute walk of the apartment.

Further Details:

The area caters for all kinds of holidays whether it is a golfing break a spring time walking holiday or a summertime relaxation poolside holiday, the area and the complex of Alto offers you everything you could wish for.

There is a small supermarket within walking distance; the major supermarkets Continente, Lidl and Aldi are only a five minute drive from the apartment. There is no shortage of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes in the area. Alvor has a bowls club and boasts a skydiving centre at the small aerodrome. Also worth considering is the boat trip from Portimao riverside upriver to the ancient town of Silves. Recently introduce is a half hourly bus service from the Golf club to Alvor village via Alto Country Club reception, in one direction and to the centre of Portimao in the other. A regular bus service runs from the beach to Portimao via Praia da Rocha and the marina at Portimao. Other tourist information and details of local taxis can be found in the apartment.
