Excellent apartment ideally situated to enjoy Alvor

  • 4 of 5

We were met by the wonderfully helpful Maria. The apartment is excellent it is beautifully furnished with very tasteful decor which takes it above your usual holiday let. It is very spacious and the split level ideal when you have teenagers. The location is nice and quiet but just a short walk into the centre of Alvor. The pool is great well maintained and never seemed busy. The view from both sets of balconies is nice and would be good to have a couple of chairs on the upstairs balcony level to fully enjoy it. All in all we had an excellent time and would highly recommend this apartment.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Alvor now for thirteen years and this was our first stay at this apartment. Believe me, we were not disappointed. The location is ideal being quiet but only a short walk into the town with all its wonderful shops, bars and restaurants and the fantastic beach. Furthermore its only a very short walk to the local Pingo Doce supermarket for all your food, drink and holiday essentials. The apartment itself is spacious, stylish and very well equipped and sits within a small secure gated complex having neatly kept gardens and a beautiful swimming pool with shower and sunbeds.

We were met by the owners representative who showed us around the spotlessly clean apartment and subsequently dealt efficiently with a minor issue. Will be returning in October 2014. Julie and Dario....Thank You.

Location

From the Owner

When we chose to purchase this property above all others in the area in 2012 we had stayed in many apartments in Alvor over the past 30 years, this was the only complex that ticked all the boxes, Central but peaceful (5 minutes walk from the centre of the village), 2 Minutes walk to supermarket, Complex is small and quiet with only 22 apartments and a larger than average pool meaning no overcrowding, Beautiful gardens overlooked from all front balconies, Countryside over looked from all rear balconies,perfect location for Beach, Bars, Restaurants ECT. We are proud to say that our apartment is true home from home with everything you need and more for a perfect holiday, please let us know if you need any advis eon anything regarding the area whether you are planing to stay in our apartment or elsewhere, always happy to help !
