About Antoine DUARTE

I live in Paris with my wife and my two daughters. We used to spend our family vacation in Algarve for many years because the area is beautiful.

Antoine DUARTE purchased this villa in 2013

Why Antoine DUARTE chose Alvor

The property is located in an idyllic setting in the heart of one of the most prestigious Algrave's golf. The beautiful beaches, small fishing villages, typical restaurants and also many shops and bars are making this area very comfortable, quiet, convenient and welcoming.

What makes this villa unique

The property is just 15 minutes walk from the fabulous beaches. We provide beach towels, umbrellas and bicycles so you can travel light. For those who enjoy a more active holiday, you can take advantage of discounted rates at the nearby golf course.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa was something that holiday dreams are made of. The help and support from start to finish is excellent. Bernadette was at the villa to meet us upon arrival and nothing was too much trouble a wonderful woman indeed. The outside area and pool are kept immaculate and inside is the same. This villa has everything you would ever need for your stay. The location is very private and a short stroll down to Alovr town. Overall we would highly recommend this villa to anyone wanting a relaxing break.

Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about this Villa. Great communication with the owner who organised everything including transfers from the airport for us. Location is fabulous and only a couple of minutes from Alvor town centre by taxi. Villa itself is lacking in nothing that you would need and the air conditioning and pool were life savers given that we experienced some very hot weather during our stay. Bernadette (The Manager) is a lovely lady and was very helpful in settling us in. Will certainly look to stay again in the future. One of the best breaks we have experienced in years. Thanks again Antoine.

relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

The villa is fabulous , the photos really do not do it justice. It was spotlessly clean and as described.

Its in a really quiet area , but within easy reach of Alvor and the beach.

The garden area is beautiful , we so enjoyed eating outside and made full use of the gas bbq. The pool heating was a huge plus and added so much to our enjoyment of the villa

Their is a market in the old part of the town and a lovely esplanade area with bars and restaurants, Though we were very reluctant to leave the villa

We had a late arrival and our flight was also delayed , Bernadette ( the manager ) was waiting for us at the villa . A list of provisions we`d requested were also there , very helpful considering our late arrival. She was so friendly and came back the following morning to explain about the villa and Alvor and answer any questions we had. She was very easily contactable during our stay and responded very quickly , she couldn`t have been more helpful

There are also bicycles which you can use at the villa

Prior to our stay Antoine always responded quickly to any enquiries and importantly was flexible to our travel dates .We had bottles of wine as a welcome gift , which helped us relax into holiday mode.

Antoine suggested a company to use for our airport transfer . They were reliable and friendly , It takes an hour from Faro airport and for the return journey we paid 130 euros in total .

We had a truly memorable time at the villa and we will be back

Thank you Antoine and Bernadette

My Holiday

  • 4 of 5

The villa was beautiful and the pool was at a fantastic temperature. The communication with owner and house keeper were brilliant and helpful.

The only reason it doesn't get five stars is no English satellite TV and no Wi-Fi (3G dongle). Which means it does not work on phones or tablets.

There were plenty of household linen and everything else in the house was perfect.

Very well situated the local golf course was in walking distance.

Villa is 15 minutes walk from beaches, 5 minutes by car.

Praia do Vau enjoys what is possibly one of the best beaches in all the Algarve - a big boast indeed in a country where superb sandy beaches are the norm. The beach is long and sandy. Very family oriented, the waters are shallow, clean and clear and shelve gently for safe and pleasant bathing.


Faro airport located at 75km from the villa. It is around 45 minutes by car.


The centre of Alvor is at 1km from the villa, and the centre of Portimão is at 2km by car.

Further Details:

The villa is located in the heart of a dynamic city where there are a large number of shops, restaurants, shops, banks, gas stations and shopping centres.

Jetski rentals and pedalos are available on the beach.

Aquatic fun parks and wildlife parks are just at 30 minutes from the villa.
