Super apartment in great location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in SolRio apartment in August 2017 - 2 adults and 2 teenagers. We were delighted with the entire place. The sofa beds are very comfortable single beds and plenty room to leave opened up all the time. The pool is accessed via the gate on the very large patio area and the town and beach is just a very short walk away. The bikes were an added bonus. Fully equipped kitchen which we didn't really use as there are an abundance of quality restaurants in Alvor. Would recommend O Arco Velha at the end of the hill by the harbour for authentic Portuguese food. Will be back!

Beautiful Apartment with a great central location

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, modern, comfortable apartment in a great central location. We had an amazing holiday here with our 7 year old son. The apartment is spacious with a huge terrace overlooking the lovely gardens, pool and estuary beyond and there was more than enough room for the three of us. We have stayed in Alvor several times and this is the best location yet - within 2 minutes walk of the town square and about 10 minutes from the stunning beach. Joao made the booking process hassle free and even arranged for a third bike for our son which was great. We were met on arrival by Francisca who was very helpful. The welcome pack was unexpected but very gratefully received and there were even beautiful fresh flowers which was a lovely touch. Our towels were changed 3 times and sheets once during our stay which was perfect. I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment as a wonderful base to explore the beautiful delights of Alvor and the Algarve.

Lovely apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this modern and clean apartment. It is a generous size for two people and well equipped.

We have been coming to Alvor for many years and this apartment is in the best location - only a couple of minutes walk from the village, but also very quiet. Francisca met us on arrival and was very helpful and spoke fluent English. A few essential provisions were provided for us and the flowers were also a lovely thought. We stayed for 10 days and had 2 changes of towels and a change of bed linen during this time which we hadn't expected.

We also took advantage of the bikes that were provided and enjoyed cycling along the Alvor boardwalk.

Joao was very helpful and pleasant throughout the enquiry and booking process and was a delight to do business with. We would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a relaxing and comfortable stay in Alvor.

a true gem - diamond class

  • 5 of 5

This relatively new and modern ground floor apartment is set in the perfect location. The supermarket (Pingo Doce) is 200m in one direction and the village square is 200m in another direction. The apartment is exceptionally well furnished and spacious. The front terrace is ideal for breakfast in the sun and it shines on the rear large terrace from late morning until sunset.There is access from the terrace to the gardens and pools making this apartment ideal for families with children.

The owner, Joao, was very helpful and amenable during the booking process and responded to questions quickly and efficiently.

We were met on arrival by Mrs Francisca who provided an unasked for 'welcome pack' which we greatly appreciated. She was on hand throughout our stay to provide help and information.

Joao and Te kept in touch by email to make sure we had everything we needed. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have already rebooked to return. Would highly recommend this apartment.

Thanks to all for a memorable holiday. Alison and David

large well equipped apartment in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Large, clean, comfy and well maintained apartment, in a quiet location but only minutes from the bustling charismatic village of Alvor, which has good eating out places, for many tastes and bugets.

You can meander along the boardwalk which goes through the nature reserve, then back track to the picturesque harbour for a fresh sardine lunch.

Also from the harbour you can book boat trips, our favourite is the day trip to Lagos on one of the sister sailing boats, which allows you four hours in Lagos then a fabulous sailing experience on the journey back (wind permitting).

If amazing sunsets are your thing, chill a bottle of wine and get comfy on the large veranda back at the apartment, which overlooks the estuary area,and enjoy! The veranda has direct access to the well kept garden and pool area.

Talking of wine the Pingo-Doce supermarket has a good selection of food and provisions and is only a couple of minutes walk from the apartment.

My e-mail correspondence with Jaoa prior to and after booking was friendly and efficient, as was our greeting from Mrs Francisca who gave us relevant information and a telephone contact number should we need it,also a thoughtful welcome pack.

My final comment "Alvor and Solrio a perfect holiday combination".
