About Martin

Living just near Beaconsfield we are a family that have always enjoyed spending time on the Algarve and, indeed, the picturesque harbour town of Alvor. Our kids are all grown up so our apartment is now being made available for other families to share in this lovely experience.

Martin purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Martin chose Portimao region

This property is in a very central location which gives a unique attraction. It's a modern, spacious and comfortable 2 bedroom apartment. Here you are at the very heart of what the Alvor village offers its visitors. Only a 2 minute walk to the top of the strip with all the many bars and restaurants close at hand. However, you are only a 5 minute walk from the harbour and only a 10 minute walk from the beautiful beach. It's a superb central location.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a very secure first floor apartment with underground and gated garage parking. (Parking is a nightmare in Alvor in the summer but you can relax with your allocated spot).

On the roof there is a lovely private pool and sun deck. Here you can relax without being overlooked whilst enjoying the views across the rooftops and out to sea.

There is full lift access to the 1st floor where the apartment is located which provides an easy way to make full use of a kids buggy or grand parents wheelchair. The rooftop pool is accessed via 3 short flights of steps from the top of the lift. (25 steps total).

Alvor in February

  • 5 of 5

An excellent apartment in a perfect location, right in the old part of the town. We had lots of room and all facilities. The electricity cut out one day but all was fixed by Clare, our local contact, within 30 minutes. An information pack for the apartment would be useful, but it was a small matter for us as we knew the town well. Lighting in the lounge was not really bright enough to read by in the evening, so we used the brighter lamps that we found with the spares.

Great apartment, great central location

  • 4 of 5

Everything made easy for you prior to and on arrival. Local phone numbers sent day before arrival and having made contact with the key holder we were greeted on time and escorted around the apartment. The apartment itself is very under-stated from the outside but very roomy inside with the benefit of a pool and roof terrace, which is highly unusual for this type of property. Underground parking with a electric gate was another winner for us, again not the norm for this type of property.

I would definitely recommend this apartment and would want to stay here again.

Exceptional Apartment in the Heart of Alvor

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this apartment justice, what a fantastically well appointed place to stay. Spotlessly clean, with the cleaners visiting twice during our week's stay, new appliances throughout, mega secure, with off road private parking (this is a massive bonus as the streets of Alvor are pretty narrow) & a lovely rooftop pool to boot.

Customer service is top notch, (massive thanks to Gus for his invaluable help!)

We have visited the algarve on numerous occasions over the years, but wish I had spotted this little gem sooner, Very highly recommended, would go back right now if I could.

If you are staying here, make sure you pop in to the Leinster Bar on the way back from the stunning beach for a few cold ones.

Whilst here, we frequented a number of restaurants, all of which were superb & can cater for all budgets.

What a superb base for your hols.

Will definately book again.
