We came to a crossroads. It led us to Alvor.

We fell instantly in love with this beautiful, charming, picturesque fishing village, with its perfect location close to sea and countryside and the Monchique mountains 30 minutes away - right on the Algarve coast, offering the best all year climate in Europe.

In Alvor life is pleasant. 125 restaurants offer everything you could wish for. The stunningly beautiful Alvor Beach is just one golf shot away. Shops, golf courses, tennis, fitness, horseback riding, walk ways, water sports, etc. are close. In Portimao, 5 km away, you can still your big shopping desire.

But Alvor is also the optimal destination for those seeking the quiet, refreshing holiday. You can go out to the market hall or bakery in the morning and buy your fresh fruit, fish and bread. You enjoy your breakfast to the sound of birds chirping and the waves rolling onto the beach.

Here, we wanted to create a home that met our highest standards of comfort and quality. The result is "The Birds Nest", a modern town house in the very center and with everything Alvor offers on the doorstep.

                                                              What a fantastic property - thank you so much to Rey and Rosario for such a great week..

                                                              Paul H.Kent, England

                                                              Complete and utter amazement at the thought and effort that has gone into creating The Birds Nest. The rooms are amazing - the 3 roof areas perfect and the kitchen really does have everything. The bedrooms really did make it a home from home for all of us and everybody couldn't help but comment what a wonderful property this was. The location was brilliant as you are 10 minutes from the beach or 2 minutes from the restaurants and bars in the evening. If you needed escape from the heat - the courtyard or air conned rooms were your friend - and for a wonderful sundowner - with amazing views - you cannot beat the roof terrace with jacuzzi and music and if you are up for it a BBQ.

                                                              Not sure what TV they have but the picture quality when watching a film on Apple TV / WiFi was surreal.. like watching a computer game it was that good.

                                                              I really would recommend this place to any groups/extended families as there is more than enough space to congregate / socialise and/or get away from it all.

                                                              Thank you guys and we do hope to be back again sometime soon...

                                                              Thank you Paul! You're making me and my staff very happy.

                                                              Perfect Luxury Nest

                                                              This is the second time we rent this apartment, and again it's perfection. Most likely the best apartment in Alvor!

                                                              Great property and owners in perfect Alvor

                                                              We stayed here for the second year in a row. Our 2 families had so much fun. The property accommodates our 9 people very comfortably. Rey is very good to deal with. Alvor has great restaurants, a fantastic beach, a good night life, lots of other attractions, and then you return to a fantastic house. Wish we could do this every year. Highly, highly recommend!

                                                              Fantastic Townhouse - Loved it!


                                                              Just returned from an amazing week at the Birds Nest in Alvor with my family of 8 ranging from age 14 to 73. The location is perfect as it is on a quiet street but only a few hundred yards from all of the bars, cafes and restaurants and also very close to the waterfront and beaches. The accommodation is spotless, brand new and no expense has been spared in kitting it out from top to bottom. The kitchen is large and has everything (and more) that you could possibly need. They have thought of everything. Laundry room a blessing! (They even provide beach towels). Bedrooms and bathrooms are gorgeous. The 4 upstairs bedrooms are larger than the two downstairs and have mini fridges with complimentary wine and water. The Swan suite with private terrace is gorgeous which was an afternoon sun trap but there is also a balcony for the morning sun. The rooftop views are lovely watching the sunset and 360 degree views from the comfort of the hot tub. We had a few BBQs up there and some great nights up there. I would definitely recommend this place for a large extended family or groups of couples (but not young children due to marble stairs). There is so much space that you can find solitude if you wish but congregate in one of the terraces if you wish. Loved it.

                                                              The Bird's Nest is perfect!

                                                              Our 2 families stayed at The Bird's Nest for 7 days. It accommodated 9 of us beautifully. It is modern and so well laid out - we had so much space for the nine of us. It has everything you require to cook, clean, relax, etc. It has 4 great outside spaces as well. It is so well-situated within Alvor - you can easily walk to a restaurants, pubs, the beach or the markets. The owners are helpful and very responsive and if you have any questions during your stay Sonia is readily available to help. I can highly recommend The Bird's Nest. We are already discussing returning next summer.

                                                              The best you can get.

                                                              Alvor and " the birds nest" has everything for a perfect holyday. Close to many golf courses, good resturants and the never ending beach Praia de Alvor on walking distance. (5-10 min).

                                                              We can recommend resturants Ruccola and A´Ribeira. very good food and perfect service. Saved the best for last "the birds nest" is excellent.

                                                              luxury and charming right in the middle of every thing. We can highly recommend it.
