Hello, I'm Chris. I want to make your holiday experience the very best. I am always available by 'phone or email, and happy to attend your every holiday need. I can arrange taxi transfers, & cot-hire, recommend car-hire & restaurants. I have been renting out this property for 13 years, and have many returning guests, who of course, have become friends. My guests get free use of sports equipment including 3 sets of golf clubs & a couple of bicycles, etc, if required.

Christine Owens purchased this apartment in 1999

There are many tourist apartments in this charming fishing village, most of them, cheaper than the Alto Club, but most of them are in concrete blocks, many on residential roads, and overlooking similar properties, you get what you pay for !! This property has a wonderful location on the Alto Club, it is not overlooked and very peaceful & private. The Alto is the ONLY 5-star establishment in the area, Set in acres of sub-tropical gardens, yet close to the beach & the village, there is no place quite like it in Alvor. Imagine waking up to the lovely views across the bay of Lagos every morning, and dining under the stars on the balcony in the evenings. All within an easy stroll to the wonderful beach & lively village

In a nutshell, this location & this apartment have it all. Established long enough to have mellowed, and immaculately maintained & equipped. The staff are friendly & helpful. The local people are warm & wonderful, and they remember you, when you visit a restaurant for a second time. Once you have visited The Alto Club, nowhere else in the region is quite good enough.

The Tidings - fantastic holiday hideaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2012
We have been coming to Alvor for many years now, as we really enjoy the whole ambiance of the Town.
We have also stayed on Alto Country Club an numerous occasions, but never at The Tidings, until November 2012.
My wife Linda, and I, had the opportunity to spend some time together so off we went for a short break.
I've got to say the standard of accommodation and the service pre and post visit was second to none.
Chris and Tony who own the Apartment are lovely people, who do everything they can to make the trip as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
I would definately recommend everything about our visit from the Apartment, the Alto Complex and Alvor itself.
Looking forward to our next visit.
Mark and Linda
Owner's Response: Hello Linda & Mark,

Thank you so much for your lovely review.
I am so glad that you enjoyed yourselves at my apartment, and hope that you will continue to come - forever.
It was lovely to see you, Mark, at my home, and I hope that next time, you will bring Linda, and we can make a night of it.
YOU are the lovely people, and it is a great pleasure for me, to deal with you.
Have a very happy New Year, & I hope to hear from you soon.

Love,
Chris.

A superb holiday

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 3, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
We had a superb holiday last month staying in this spotlessly clean apartment which was only a short walk to the swimming pool and the onsite facilities such as tennis, table tennis etc which were all free.

Although we ate out every night the kitchen is very well equipped for those guests who choose to cook their own meals. There are plenty of places to eat within a 10 or 15 minute walk and one of our favourites was Al Dente, an Italian restaurant close to the security gate at the bottom of the complex and one that Chris recommended.

Although we hired a car the apartment was within easy walking distance to the beach, the harbour and the centre of the village, so anyone choosing not to hire one would have no problems.

From initial contact with Chris, through to the holiday itself, everything went smoothly and I must say that was down to Chris being so helpful and easy to deal with. If anyone has reservations about booking online for the first time then we can highly recommend apartment 40C.

Owner's Response: Dear Alison, Martin & William,

It's having guests like yourselves, that make apartment ownership such a joy to me. Thank you so much for your super review.

I'm so glad that you found everything to your satisfaction, and by what you say, I imagine that the weather was good too.

I hope that you choose to come to my place again, it was a great pleasure dealing with you, and you would be most welcome to return.

I wish you all, a very happy end-of-the summer, and look forward to hearing from you again.

Very best wishes,
Chris.

Wonderful family holiday

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 17, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
This was our first trip abroad with our 18 month old, and after advice from friends and lots of internet searching we decided on Alvor, and the Alto Club. From the moment we spotted this apartment and made initial contact with Christine we knew we had made the right choice. Christine could not have been more helpful with our queries, always replying quickly to our emails and providing fantastic information and hints and tips on the local area, car rentals, cot and high-chair hire etc etc...

The apartment was just as described, spotlessly clean and excellently equipped for a self-catering stay - having a young child with us meant we did cook most of our evening meals so this was important. The balcony is a great spot for enjoying dinner and a glass or two of wine. We also got a couple of take-outs from Cotton's the Alto restaurant, which were excellent.

Alvor is a lovely, quiet resort, we spent most days on the beach which is just a short walk from the apartments, and there are also a small number of sun beds and shades there exclusively for use of Alto guests which were great. The small town (again a short walk) has a lovely selection of shops and restaurants, so there is not a shortage of places to go.

All-in-all we had a great week and will definitely look to return to Alvor and to this apartment.
Owner's Response: Hi Louise & Richard,

Wow !! What a great review, thank you so much.

Sorry it's taken me a while to respond, I have been laid up with the 'flu, (probably need a holiday in tthe sun!).

I am delighted to learn that you had such a good time, and I hope that the weather was kind to you, it was dreadful here.

I too, like to cook when I'm in residence, somehow it doesn't seem so much of a chore when you're on holiday, and I have planted my favourite herbs on the balcony & in the front garden.

I do hope that you choose to return, I would be very happy to hear from you again, and wish you both & William a very happy summer.

Thanks again for taking the trouble to write, it made my day.

Very best wishes,
Christine x

Wonderful apartment and location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 20, 2012
  • Stayed: Feb 2012
The apartment had everything we needed and more, close to the centre and the beautiful sprawling beach (10 minute walk). Immaculate and extremely comfortable, with the sun in the balcony from mid-morning until it set in the evening and the incredible views across to Lagos Bay were just beautiful. The time of the year meant it was quite cool at night so the log burning fire in the apartment was just perfect and there was a great supply of wood to keep it going. The apartment has plentiful supplies of everything you would need for a self catering holiday, and the owner Chris is extremely helpful with tips and recommendations.

We would highly recommend this little gem and we will definitely be returning.

Owner's Response: Hello Ladies,

What can I say? A big thank you for your lovely comments. It was a great pleasure to deal with you, and you are welcome back at any time. I am so glad that the weather & everything worked out for you, and that you made use of the fire. It is said that "One should never go back", but I know that Lynn used to work in Alvor, and went back, so I hope that you both will continue to do so. I look forward to hearing from you again.

Very best wishes, & thanks again,

Holiday to remember!!!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 27, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
Summer 2011 was our first trip to Alvor, not knowing much about this Portuguese resort, we thoroughly searched website after website looking for a self-catering apartment close to all amenities. Time and time again there were excellent reviews about The Alto Golf and Country Club. We decided to investigate this complex further and came across apartment 40C and decided to go ahead and book… WE WERE NOT DISSAPPOINTED! The resort and Complex was beautiful and the apartment offered everything we needed for a family of four with two teenagers, it was quite literally home from home (only with the sunshine).
We are a family who would normally venture out every evening, however found ourselves having several nights in as the apartment’s balcony accommodated our needs with a spectacular view and well equipped kitchen.
Additionally, Chris the owner makes your stay even more enjoyable. She provides details of airport transfers, best car rentals, restaurants, bars etc. She goes the extra mile to make your holiday one to remember.
Roll on July 2012 when the Price family are returning to 40C.
