We liked the area so much that we have bought a villa nearby and that is why the apartments are now available to rent.

We bought the first apartment in 2013 as we loved the area so much and wanted to spend as much of our leisure time as possible in Alvor. It is walking distance from our favourite beach the beautiful " Tres Irmaos Beach".

Our modern 1 bed apartments are in a low rise complex, sleep 2/4 (plus infants) have air conditioning and balconies facing the swimming pool.

The ground floor has a double bed and a sofa bed and the second floor 2 twin beds and a sofa bed.

They are part of a secure gated condominium complex made up of 3 blocks containing 60 apartments and set in large communal gardens. There are plenty of parking bays alongside the complex.

The beautiful communal gardens have many flowers and fruit trees and a path for walking or running. There are barbecue facilities and a children's play area

A quiet location but within walking distance to beaches, shops, restaurants and bars, providing easy access to both daytime activities and night-life.

There are beautiful sandy beaches, plenty of charming shops and a variety of restaurants (serving both national and international cuisine), cafes and bars.

There is a Spar convenience store (sells food, toiletries, alcohol, beach goods and English newspapers ) 10/15 minutes walk away and in the centre of Alvor two small supermarkets Intermarche and Pingo Doce.

There are bigger supermarkets in Portimao around 10/15 mins drive away Jumbo, Intermarche, Continente, Lidl and Aldi.

There is a fairly new modern shopping centre in Portimao called the Aqua centre which houses the Jumbo supermarket together with various fashion retailers and a selection of other retailers with free parking.

We can provide a welcome grocery pack - cost depending on goods required.

High-chairs and travel cots can also be hired.

We also hire beach towels, deck chairs, and beach parasols.

About the Owner

We have been visiting The Algarve for the past 20 years and loved it so much we bought an apartment as Alvor is our favourite spot and has in my opinion one of the most beautiful beaches "Tres Irmaos"

We started renting Quinta da Amoreira last May and have had very happy guests as our reviews show !

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Linda

Just to let you know we really enjoyed our stay in your apt. The apt. was perfect for the 3 of us and everything we needed was there for our comfort. We will definitely return to Alvor but not in July or August as I personally found the heat too much even though my wife & daughter found it okay ,apparently June or Sept. are more comfortable for people like me who are not used to heat.

Again thanks for organising transport to & from airport also a word for Jane who gave us a good run down of the apt. and local shops & restaurants and was always available if we had any queries.

All the best

First Visit to Portugal and won't be our last

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Portugal and found Alvor harbour area really attractive with some excellent restaurants.We particularly liked Navagators. It was about 20 minutes walk from the apartment to the interesting town and the sea front/beaches. We walk regularly but some people might prefer to use a car. Less than 5 minutes walk is Por do Sol restaurant. We took our daughter who works in Lagos on our penultimate night. It was so special we went on our own on our last night.

On arrival we got lost and Linda and her husband drove out and rescued us and handed us over to Jayne, her lovely caretaker/cleaner, who showed us round in great detail and advised us on the appliances in the apartment and showed us around the grounds. She also brought us a change of towels in the middle of our 9 day holiday. Her advice on local wine was good too. Cheers Jayne. We also went on the Silves boat trip that she recommended which was very enjoyable. They picked us up at the apartment which meant we didn't have to drive which was just as well as the sangria was strong.

We found the apartment comfortable, clean and quite well equipped. ( I would have liked proper wine glasses....just one of my things) The provision of a washing machine meant we didn't have to bring too many clothes. The shower over a full size bath was excellent. The air con was very efficient.

Top up wi fi was available and 10 euros lasted 7 days which was very good value. Linda arranged the top up for us.The pool was well maintained as were the gardens.

If I were to change one thing in the apartment it would be the clocks. I took out the batteries in all but one. Time doesn't matter on holiday.

All in all the apartment was a good base for our holiday and the assistance we received was very good.

Apartment - Quinta Da Amoreira

  • 5 of 5

The location of the apartment as was described, not far from Alvor

The owner and the care taker were friendly and helpful.

The apartment is in a block of flats which had a swimming pool and a BBQ area

The apartment was clean, comfortable, tastefully furnished and was well equipped with what we needed.

There was a free wifi available which was handy.

I will have no hesitation to recommend the property to friends

Great place . Great complex

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we met Jayne the caretaker .

She is very helpful . Told us where to go to eat etc. Having wifi In the apartment is a bonus .

Loads of English TV channels available for the mornings u might be on the couch hungover 😁

A taxi spin is recommended after a night out . Cost me between 3.50 and 4.50 .

Walk into town is about 15 min as it's all down hill and easy.

I had a car ( not necessary) so we went shopping for the week to pingo doce ( like tescos) to get the basics for the week. It's at the opposite side of the town.

There is a smaller supermarket on the same road of the complex close to town which u will also get what u need.

Having a washing machine is very handy also.

Means u don't need to pack a wardrobe full of clothes .. hand em on the line in the eve . They be dry the following afternoon 😉

Stayed here from 27th July till 3rd August

Temperatures went from 28 .c to 36.c

Loads if want to get a tan .. but be careful 😂

Basically in a nutshell I would have no problem staying here in the future

A Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This place is excellent to stay and I would certainly recommend it.

We particularly liked the easy access to the lovely pool area.

The house was very clean and airy. We didn't need to use the air-conditioning.

As a keen cook I really enjoyed the kitchen facilities and the BBQ.

I would have no hesitation in telling my friends and relatives that this is the place to stay for a safe, secluded and memorable holiday.

Thanks Linda and hopefully we will be back in near future.

Ross's Alvor trip

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was great and had everything you could ask for - easy to arrange and were made very welcome by both the owners and the caretaker - only downside was it was a little far from the town of Alvor mosty uphill. - also a lot of noisy barking dogs in the area - day and night

Well located and very good apartment

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week in this apartment. The apartment has everything we needed. The sofa bed is confortable and the apartment has lots of space to keep our things. The balcony face to the pool is excellent where we had our meals.

The pool is always clean and the surroundings very well cared.

It is only 2 minutes driving from the beach of "3 Irmãos" and from the pitoresque Alvor.

A special word to Jayne, who welcome us and was always very nice and helpful.

Even a baby cot was provided for our son.

Our sincere thanks to Linda and hope to get back soon.

Facilities

From the Owner

Quiet location but within walking distance to beaches, shops, restaurants and bars for both daytime activities and night-life. As well as the usual holiday pursuits there are many flea markets held on Sundays which are akin to the car boot sales we frequent in the UK. Another advantage is that UK/US films are not dubbed but subtitled in Portuguese so you can go to the cinema and watch and listen to the dialogue in English.
