About Colin wearn

We are a family of four with two children. This is the best purchase we have ever made. We never tire of the area and are always finding new things to see and do.

Colin wearn purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Colin wearn chose Portimão

Having built up a detailed knowledge of the area from numerous visits we were able to make a very informed choice of location when buying.

We wanted peace, quiet and tranquility, combined with close proximity to the wonderful selection of beaches, restaurants, bars and shops in the area.

G2H matched our criteria perfectly.

What makes this apartment unique

We have tried to make this property a real 'home from home'. This means we have furnished to a high standard and all electrical equipment is over and above what you would normally expect to find in a holiday rental.

The pool is never busy and the only sounds come from the occasional ping of a golf ball and the chirping of the local birdlife.

Great apartment in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday in this apartment. Very relaxing with the pool and the beaches so close by, with easy access by car to various sight-seeing spots / activities in the Algarve. The apartment itself was spacious and well kitted out. It looks out onto the Golf Course so it felt nice and private as it isn't overlooked by other apartments. The golf course with the trees / greenery and birds was a lovely peaceful setting. The neighbours were mostly families and couples who were all very friendly.

The nearest beach is an easy walk with some nice little snack bars and quiet coves. We also visited Zoomarine and Lagos and did a dolphin boat trip which was amazing - the boat was surrounded by dolphins swimming alongside. Our kids (6 and 8) loved it along with the small beach, Praia da Vau, with its crashing waves. We meant to do a few other sightseeing activities but enjoyed relaxing at the pool, eating in restaurants and swimming at the beach too much. Would love to go back and would choose to stay here again.

Just great!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week in this lovely apartment, which is set in peaceful surroundings, but Vau beach and amenities are only a short walk away.

It was quite hot, but there is usually a lovely breeze & the pool is great to cool down in.

Alvor itself has lots of charm with its little shops & great restaurants to choose from.

On its long sandy beach, with loungers & umbrellas, you can really relax in the sun & then return to the cool of the apartment.

Would highly recommend & will be back!!

Perfection in Portugal

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week. Apartment just as described. Property was immaculate and obviously well maintained by the owners. Very comfortable with everything you could need. Lovely setting overlooking golf course. Owner excellent to deal with. His directions from airport to apartment were spot on. First impressions were that it was a bit far out of Alvor town but soon realised the peace and quiet was a big bonus. Had a very traditional Portugese meal in restaurant on Vau beach while watching fabulous sunset. Came home very relaxed. Would certainly go back and recommend to others.

Car: recommended


The nearest beach is under a 10 minute walk away. It is beautiful. There are many other stunning beaches all within a ten minute car journey.

There is also a great coastal walk along the cliff tops and a beachside boardwalk to Portimao harbour. the harbour area offers surf and sailing schools and any restaurants and bars.


Faro Airport is a 45 minute transfer.

There are many taxi companies offering this service and can be arranged for you by request.

Car hire, although not essential, is recommended. Please speak with owners for a preferential company to use.


The apartment is ideally situated to explore the beautiful beaches, coastline and countryside of the Western Algarve.

The towns of Silves and Monchique are a 40min drive and for the more ambitious Lisbon is approx. 3hrs away.

The national park of the very western Algarve with its stunning coastline is just 40 minutes away

The excellent Slide and Splash waterpark is a 30 min drive at most and Zoomarine, a water fun park with various animal shows and dolphins, can be reached in under 45 mins

Further Details:

The town of Alvor is nearby (5-7min drive) with a great range of restaurants and bars to suit all tastes. Owners recommendations are available within apartment.

Vau beach and Praia da Rocha are also close by, again with a good selection of bars, restaurants and shops.

The harbour area at Portimao is also a very close drive away with an extensive range of places to eat.

Portimao itself is also very easily reached and here you will find a good range of large supermarkets and retail parks
