About Connie

We are semi-retired couple from London who enjoy travel, walking, reading, wildlife, historic sites, old towns, museums, exploring, gardening, cooking & entertaining. For us nothing beats the fresh air, year round sunshine & stunning scenery of Alvor & the surrounding countryside. We love an ocean side walk on the pristine beaches, cliff top rambles & exploring the Monchique mountains. We are leisure and wellness professionals & still consult and travel extensively in this capacity. It is in Alvor where we really unwind, our walks usually end up at the harbour or a beach side bar where we savour the views and feel of this lovely friendly place as we sip a coffee or watch the best sunset in the Algarve. This year we hope to sail and canoe in the estuary although we are past kite surfing!

Why Connie chose Portimao region

With unrivalled beaches and harbour views, we love Alvor & wanted to get more out of life by buying into it’s all year round lifestyle that we find special & uplifting. It is friendly social village with lots going on, good local services & shops, from hairdressers to Pilates, while Portimao huge supermarkets & malls are a short drive. Alvor has great bars & our favourite restaurants, we like the local choice of fresh fish, meat & produce Inc Alvor’s famous clams, everything is dotted around narrow streets and harbour side, complete with views, & it captivated us. Quick A22 & N125 access for the Monchique, Waterparks, Lagos Zoo, Go Carting F1 Circuit, historical Silves & Lagos, Shows, Exhibitions and Country activities & a good private hospital made Alvor the perfect place to buy

What makes this villa unique

Our family loves Alvor, we had been visiting for 15 years, then had the luck of a buying a dream home on a gated complex of 23 villas. It’s a perfect family location with parking, gardens & fenced deck level communal pool and children’s pool, surrounded by sun terraces, lawn & palm trees. The Villa has a small suntrap back terrace, front garden, terrace & balcony. Alvor’s beautiful sandy beaches, harbour, boardwalk, restaurants, bars, supermarkets and shopping are just 5 mins drive. Built in 2000 we refurbished the Villa as our home adding a luxury kitchen, rear “wash and dry” balcony with machine, sink, worktop & sun blind, deluxe Daikin A/C on the ground floor & in the 3 bedrooms, a large log burning stove as well as stylish new furniture, beds & lovely things for staying year round.
