The best sea view in Alvor...the perfect short stay apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Met on arrival by the owner for a full tour of the apartment - great little kitchen and open plan dining and sitting room...all the usual home comforts and well equipped kitchen. Free wifi, flat screen tv with over 100 channels...Bedroom comfortable and plenty wardrobe space...Bathroom clean and a washing machine too!

Great balcony, the length of the apartment, mountain views one end and the best harbour views the other end.

Well located in the town, minutes from all the best bits of old Alvor town.

The owners were great, Miguel and Mia kept us well informed at all times and even dropped off an oil radiator as there was a drop in temperature (it was February)...

Anyway, the apartment is well recommended and for us, the overall experience was great and highly likely we will make a return soon.

Fabulous apartment, in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

I arrived later than expected and it was no problem for the owner who was there to greet me and show me around the apartment. It had everything one might need, washing machine. full size cooker and hob, large fridge freezer, pantry with ironing board, bath with shower over and outside table, chairs and sunbeds on the balcony which has the best views in Alvor. The "strip" which has lots of restaurants, bars and souvenir shops is literally around the corner and the nearest shop stocking all you might need is within a few minutes' walk. The harbour is a couple of streets away. Despite the closeness of all the hustle and bustle, there was very little noise at night.

The only things I feel I should mention is that there are 46 stairs up to the apartment (but it is really worth it for the views) and the bath is a sit in bath, not for stretching out. However, ideal for bathing children and the shower is powerful.

The weather was perfect for me (third week of October), with sunny days around 25 degrees and cooler nights. The bedroom has aircon, which was great for siesta time, but there is also a remote controlled fan in the lounge/kitchen which was powerful enough to cool the whole space when needed.

In short, I loved it! A real home from home and I have every intention of returning next year.

Great apartment with views down the coast

  • 5 of 5

Great stay. Apartment has everything you need. Views from the balcony over the town and down the cost. You can see Lagos from the balcony. Miguel and Mia are great hosts. Apartment is in the top floor and very private. Separate bedroom and bathroom has a bath. Secure apartment. You can only enter with your key or by intercom locked door. Would recommend a stay here. Bars and restaurants within 3 minutes walk. Harbour and waterfront bars within 3 minutes just down the hill. Facilities include dishwasher and washing machine and plenty of clean towels.
