About Tracy Edwards

Married to David, with 2 children, we live in North Devon. The family is mad about sport in general and we try to incorporate the exercise program with Scooby the family Jack Russell (running on the beach is a firm favorite - for Scooby that is!!) We also have a 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Croyde North Devon (if you fancy a surfing break in a cooler climate!)

Tracy Edwards purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Tracy Edwards chose Alvor

We holiday here ourselves and love it here, the complex is relaxed, well maintained and very convenient and you can holiday without a car. Alto Club is unbelievably special - there is a certain atmosphere to the place and definitely has something for everyone. The proximity to the village makes it an ideal location - fabulous restaurants and bars await you, the food is always consistently good, the welcome warm, the ambiance mellow yet very jovial.

What makes this apartment unique

I think you will struggle to find such a perfect holiday option - whether you are booking for a family or as a couple. The facilities at Alto Club are superb, there is golf on the doorstep, the beach is a short walk and the village and short hop. You can make your holiday as busy or as relaxing as you like - I like a combination of the two - Alto and Alvor are the perfect combo :)

A walk along the beach brings you to the beaches of Tres Irmaoes, Vau and Praia da Rocha.

Alvor is situated in a sheltered estuary on the curving coastline in the Bay of Lagos.

Alvor is a 40/45 minutes drive from Faro airport. Car hire is available from the airport; alternatively car hire can be arranged at discount prices from Alto Club reception. A regular bus service is also available from the airport. Cheap flights may be obtained on the Internet from Easyjet and Air Lingus, Flybe and other airlines.

Distances:

The busy fishing port of Alvor is a five minute stroll from the apartment, with modern shops and top class restaurants offering international cuisine at affordable prices. The colorful and busy daily market, situated in the centre of town offers freshly caught fish daily, together with meat, poultry, fruit and vegetables. You need to be there early! Relax at the waterfront cafes and enjoy the view of the harbor where you can book boat and fishing trips or visit the town sports centre.

Further Details:

The resort, with landscaped subtropical gardens, pools and waterfalls, overlooks the bay of Lagos. The resort is located in West-Central Algarve within easy access of Portimao and night life in Praia da Rocha.

Alvor has much to offer, tours and boat trips can be organized as well as many activities to include surfing, kite surfing, cycling, sailing, horse riding... and many more. The wonderful boardwalk around the estuary and running parallel to the beach is a a great way to see Alvor at its best.

The mountains of Monchique are worth a visit to either walk amongst the cork trees or simply stopping for Chicken Piri Piri at one of the many restaurants with spectacular views.

Lovely apartment , fantastic location for beach and town

  • 5 of 5

This is a really lovely, comfortable and spacious apartment with just about everything you need , on a beautifully maintained complex with great facilities.

What stood out about this apartment to us was it's great location on the complex, close to the security gate at the bottom of the complex closest to the beach and town, so just a short stroll to both. Other family members stayed on other complexes and weren't so well situated. We had also initially looked at other apartments overlooking the beach which turned out to be in high rise blocks, not so lovely we thought - so felt blessed to have chosen this apartment. Also the balcony is wonderful, it runs across both the lounge and main bedroom, has a sea view and get the sun all day.

On the complex, we used the snack bar and kids enjoyed the pool ; there's inflatable time a few times a day. There's a safely deposit facility in reception for for just €2 a day.

There's a really good supermarket just around the corner from the beach gate. Alvor town has a small selection of shops and a really lovely choice of restaurants and bars , without feeling cheap and tacky. We all really loved this town. The boys loved the beach too and the big waves - they actually weren't bothered about going to the water park as they enjoyed the sea so much!

The owner Tracey is easily contactable and really friendly and helpful, which was a relief as this was my first booking through Owners Direct .

Lovely Appartment - Great View

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday at the Alto Club (2 adults, 2 teenage kids). This apartment had great views to the sea and was very handy for the pool and the lower gate into the town.
