Lovely relaxing week

  • 4 of 5

The apartment came up to expectations but a shame only the two electric hot plates worked and not the gas ones. The grounds and pool were very nice. We managed to find shade to sit in but if it had been a lot busier it might have been nice for the apartment to provide its own sunshade to take to the pool. Although a little way out of the main town it was a ok to walk in and out for a meal every night. Very impressed with the restaurants in Alvor and liked the boardwalk. Would certainly consider staying again.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is excellent, with very good location, modern and very well maintained.

All services provided as agreed.

The pool and gardens are also excellent and pleasant.

You can visit the Alvor village and the nearest town of Portimão, Praia da Rocha has plenty offer of restaurants, discos, shopping... anything you may need.

I strongly recommend this apartment, especially if you have children.

My family and I enjoyed very much our vacation, probably we will return.

Looking for a Traditional unspoilt Land & Beach scape, for a peaceful holiday, with fantastic beaches and promenades for Family or for Romantics

This is the place to come!

Alvor is a small fishing village located 5 kms west of Portimão & only 50 minutes drive from Faro airport. This picturesque village with streets of white houses, has a rich history dating back to pre-Roman times. Cottages, cobbled streets, & colourful boats in a quaint harbour area gives Alvor it's unique charm and charisma.

Close enough to the old town of Portimão & Praia da Rocha for further action, discos, shopping and street selling.

Alvor remains a working fishing community with a fish market and thriving streets based around a 16th century Church at its centre.

All this, while boasting a large selection of bars, some with live music entertainment, street selling & entertainment, open air sea-food restaurants and excellent steak houses.

The Traditional Portuguese Food is highly recommend and offered in Alvor and in the neighbourhoods.

Also we recommend a night of Fado (traditional Portuguese music).

It boasts a beautiful 4.5 mile stretch of sandy beach, Praia do Alvor was awarded an EU Blue flag for safety, cleanliness and the quality of it's facilities.

The new walkway platform over the dunes, ending on the beach or in the waterfront Ria has a splendid view, good for walkers and bicycle.

Moreover, nearby there are other superb beaches like Prainha and Praia do Alemão.

You can stroll along some of the best sandy beaches in the Algarve, or lie back in the enchanting surroundings of a secluded cove with the picturesque cliffs climbing high above you.

There are facilities for tennis, windsurfing, and golfers are well catered for with the local Alto Golf Club, and luxury Penina Championship Golf Course.

The children will also be kept entertained with the numerous theme and water parks such as Slide & Splash, Zoo Marine etc., as well as boat tours for all family.
