About the Owner

I decided to move to Alvor in 2012, my niece has lived here for many years and I had visited many times and was always sad to leave. Alvor is a charming place, the beaches are second to none, there are many great restaurants & bars to choose from. We purchased this property early in 2013 and we're sure that you will have an enjoyable stay here.

Fab apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 2 weeks in September 2015 - abs fab apartment - it is so spacious, spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped, lovely balconies - I cannot think of one negative. I loved the location - not far from beach if you turn left out of the apartment and only 5/10 minute walk to town in the evening - does have hill to climb on the way home but nothing too difficult - Chris the owner friendly helpful and good fun - had drink with him one evening in Sues bar - this bar also had lovely friendly atmosphere. Lovely pool area - only used it once as I love the beach. The resort itself is abs fab. I would definitely recommend this apartment it was fantastic and will definitely look to book again in the future.

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time my wife an i have stayed in this apartment and as usual it was perfect, The apartment was very clean and with everything you need even down to egg cups, The complex has a very clean pool with good sun all day also a bar for snacks and of cause the odd beer, Alvor center is only ten minutes stroll which has all the restaurants, pubs and where The Lounge Bar that Sue owns and runs, The harbour with all the fish bars are just two minuets from the center, We both spent nine day and nights and had a great time, It is well worth a visit/stay.

Thanks to Chris,Sue,Dave

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our toddler stayed here for a week in May. We had a great time. The apartment is really well located being within an easy stroll of the beach and the town. There was also ample parking for our rental car. The apartment is very specious, spotless and well kitted out.There is a balcony that gets the sun until 1 and is very comfortable for eating later in the day. There is a nice clean pool at the complex although we favoured the stunning beach as it was way more fun for our toddler! The couple themselves, that own the place, Sue and Chris couldn't do enough for you from the moment we booked, to meeting us with keys at the apartment despite it being a late arrival, to being available if we needed anything. There is a bar at the complex but it wasn't open while we were there. Alvor is a lovely town, with a lovely harbour area, lovely cobbled streets and huge choice of great restaurants and bars to choose from. All in all a great holiday. Thank you Sue and Chris,
