About Seonaid Campbell

Scottish owner based in Edinburgh. Been coming to Alvor for over 10 years and decided it was the ideal place to buy an apartment in. Know the area fully, and can help with any queries you may have to make your holiday go perfectly.

Alvor really is the best place to stay in the Algarve.

Seonaid Campbell purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Seonaid Campbell chose Portimao region

Alvor has something for everyone. If you want to sample the Portuguese lifestyle you can. But there are also English / Irish bars and restaurants, and the strip leading to the harbour and the harbour area itself have cocktail bars where you can relax over a Pina Colada while watching the sun set.

Restaurants of all kinds, with excellent menus and reasonable prices.

What makes this apartment unique

Quite simply the best apartment complex in Alvor - I only regret not being able to buy more of the apartments! Google the reviews of Solrio, if you are coming to Alvor you simply MUST stay at the Solrio, it is second to none (and we've stayed at a few apartment complexes here).



The Estuary and it's quaint harbour is within 5 minutes walking distance from the apartment complex. The seafront / beach is also accessible and will take you approximately a 15 minute walk from the complex.


Faro airport: 75km

Portimao rail station: 10km

Car: not necessary


River/Alvor Harbour: 800m

Alvor Beach: 1000m

Further Details:

Alvor is a quaint traditional Portuguese village which retains much of its charm and remains unspoilt by over development while still providing many facilities expected by holidaymakers.

The complex itself is ideally situated for local bars and restaurants. A number of bars have Sky Sports and local Irish Bars also show GAA games in season.

Wide variety of restaurants within 2 minutes walk of the complex.

5 minute walk to modern harbour development with river front bars and cafés.

New supermarket, Pingo Doce, 2 minute walk from complex.

Solrio Delight

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to Alvor for 5 years, we have always enjoyed our time there, it finishes our holiday year off in a very relaxing way. We've always stayed in the village and enjoyed the apartments we've stayed in. Having read the description of this new apartment in the Solrio block, we thought it showed real promise and, it did seem a little too good to be true.

Our first reaction when we walked into the apartment was WOW. Everything about this apartment is amazing. The photographs on the website do a good job, but the feeling of space when you're in here is wonderful. It is very clean and vey well looked after. The owners - Robert & Seonaid have tried to put everything you could possible need on holiday here, and the private rooftop terrace was delightful (and bigger than many properties we've stayed in) with outstanding views. The lounge balcony is a great spot for breakfast whilst watching the the locals at the rivers edge digging for the shellfish. The caretakers Stuart & Sue cannot do enough for the guests. They send all sorts of information before you get there, they are happy to get you there from the airport if needed, and they welcome you to the apartment, and show you how everything works. If you need any advice or tips about the area, they have plenty to offer. We would easily recommend this apartment to anyone (family and friends) as long as it doesn't interfere with our holiday time!! We have always come to Alvor for the place itself, but this apartment will give us extra incentive to return here again & again. It is without doubt one of the best properties we have stayed in (and there have been many).
