Amazing Location, Peaceful and Sparkling Clean!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed in this apartment for a long weekend and we had such a wonderful time. The apartment is spacious and nicely decorated, with a private patio and a completely equipped kitchen - it was such a nice touch to have really high quality kitchen utensils and a new dishwasher.

We were thrilled to find that the beach was only a 5 minute walk away. We talked to Richard, the owner, and he told us how to get to a quiet natural beach. We went there and there were no tourists, just Portuguese enjoying their weekend.

The shared pool was big and really nice. We also managed to get a game of tennis in and had a go on the driving range.

Portimao and Alvor are a short drive away where we enjoyed barbecued sardines and a bit of shopping.

Richard was a pleasure to deal with and answered all our questions, I would fully recommend this apartment to everyone, whether you're a couple, friends or with children.

Y para los españoles, muy recomendable y buen de precio. La playa es una playa natural, sin edificios y turistas. Precioso!

The beautiful Vau beach is a 10 minute walk from the apartment.


Alvor is a 40/45 minutes drive from Faro airport. Car hire is available from the airport; alternatively car hire can be arranged at discount prices from Alto Club reception. A regular bus service is also available from the airport. Cheap flights may be obtained on the Internet from Easyjet and Air Lingus, Flybe and other airlines.


The busy fishing port of Alvor is a five minute drive from the apartment, with modern shops and top class restaurants offering international cuisine at affordable prices. The colourful and busy daily market, situated in the centre of town offers freshly caught fish daily, together with meat, poultry, fruit and vegetables. You need to be there early! Relax at the waterfront cafes and enjoy the view of the harbour where you can book boat and fishing trips or visit the town sports centre.

Further Details:

The resort, with landscaped subtropical gardens, pools and waterfalls, overlooks the bay of Lagos. The resort is located in West-Central Algarve within easy access of Portimao and night life in Praia da Rocha.

Alvor has much to offer, tours and boat trips can be organized as well as many activities to include surfing, kite surfing, cycling, sailing, horse riding... and many more. The wonderful boardwalk around the estuary and running parallel to the beach is a a great way to see Alvor at its best.

The mountains of Monchique are worth a visit to either walk amongst the cork trees or simply stopping for Chicken Piri Piri at one of the many restaurants with spectacular views.
