Why Caroline chose Alvor

We love Portugal and specifically the Algarve. We even got married on a beautiful vineyard in Estombar in 2010 (Quinta dos Vales - worth a visit). We have visited most major places and attractions and chose the apartment in Alvor as it is perfectly situated for exploring the Algarve and Alentejo (if you fancy a run out in the car!). Everyone likes their own thing but we are happy to share our experiences and knowledge so feel free to ask if you want to know more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a lovely week in the apartment. Its always worrying when you try a place for the first time but we were hugely impressed by it. Its in the ideal location for a family holiday, the centre of Alvor is just a couple of minutes walk. The supermarket is less than a minutes walk behind the apartment making it really easy to grab the things you need.

The apartment complex has its own pool which you look out over from the balcony. The pool is clean safe and, when we were there, quiet. Having a morning dip and a cooling evening dip just became part of the routine.

It was really the perfect base for our family holiday and I wouldnt hesitate to book again.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Superb apartment located on the 1st floor in a quiet residential area.

Spacious balcony overlooking the very clean pool.

Kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, sink, oven and hob.

Two bathrooms, master bedroom has on-suite.

TV with hundreds of channels and comfy settee.

Parking available below the apartment adjacent the owners garage.

Ten minute walk to the centre of Alvor. Lots of restaurants with a friendly local atmosphere.

Five minutes walk to the local supermarket (Pingo Doce)

Would recommend the confeitaria d'alvor bakery for morning coffee and cakes.

Good communications between myself and the owner.

Intend booking again in the not too distant future. :-)

I would recommend this apartment to a friend or family.

Great plac e to unwind

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at this Alvor apartment and would highly recommend to anybody looking for a relaxing family holiday. Conveniently located in a quiet residential area but within easy reach of local amenities. 2 minute walk to the supermarket, 10 minutes to the centre of Alvor and 15 minutes to the beach. There are plenty of things to do whether you want a fun day at the water park or a relaxing boat trip to Lagos or you just want to go to the beach which is stunning, well maintained and a great place to spend a whole day with children. The centre of Alvor has numerous places to eat and drink which are generally child friendly and reasonably priced without compromising the quality of their food and service. There are also plenty of shops to browse for gifts, clothes and local crafts and artwork.

The apartment is very spacious and well equipped compared to other places we have stayed at. The main living area is a large open plan kitchen, dining and living room with large balcony overlooking the lovely pool. The bedrooms are both spacious with plenty of storage space and spare / extra bedding for those who need it. The pool area is a nice, quiet place to relax without ever seeming busy even during school half term. The wifi is reliable and good enough to stream tv on whichever of the many sources the owners have supplied you choose to use.

This is a great place to spend a week or two.

Fabulous Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was fabulous, well maintained, fully equiped with satellite TV, wifi and air conditioning included and also proper beds. It is about a short walk from a well stocked supermarket and the same to the village which has lots of fabulous restaurants and bars. We were there for Portugal winning the Euros final which was an added bonus. We hired a car while in the resort and this enable us to visit some of the other towns and water parks, very reasonable

rates. We had two 14 year olds and an 11 year old with us and the pool at the apartment and the beach were both a big hit with them. The owners were a fantastic help prior to is getting there with lots of recommendations while the property manager was also a super help while we were there. I would definitely recommend this apartment and we are hoping to make it back next year. Overall a super holiday
