Lovely house - great location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house, well equipped kitchen, great location - close to restaurants/bars, lovely views from terrace, big comfy bed, nice shower/bathroom, TV/Wi-Fi good.

Shame about the barking dogs, but I guess there's not much that can be done about that.

Stairs a little daunting, maybe not suitable for the elderly

However, definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for recommending casa do burro. We are glad to hear you found the big bed comfy and the shower/bathroom and the TV/ WIFI good and that you enjoyed the lovely views. I am sorry that you could hear the barking dogs in the village. It is true that there is not much we can do about that. However the whole house has double glass insulated windows and electric shutters in front of these windows. Closing the electric shutters at night should reduce hearing much from what goes on outside. We hope to welcome you again!

Warm, Friendly and Welcoming Alvor!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was one of our best over 4 weeks in Portugal and Spain. The townhouse provided a spectacular setting in a fishing village that has not yet succumbed to the pressures of over development. It was small, accessible, quant, very scenic with everything you need within easy walking distance. The spiral staircase has to be maneuvered cautiously, but the view from the bedroom and deck is well worth it. Our only nitpicks were having to deep clean the Nespresso milk unit and the neighbourhood dog's barking. We will definitely be back though!! Helen was a wonderful hostess!

Perfect house in great location for holiday in Alvor

  • 5 of 5

The one bedroom house is perfect, keeps you fit going up and down the stairs as we spent most of our time on the 3rd floor which is where the terrace is with amazing views and a lovely breeze in the hot weather. The kitchen is on the ground floor, it would be useful to have a fridge on the top floor to keep the wine and beers chilled! Bring a wine cooler with you!

We were met by Helen on arrival who was lovely. We have been to Alvor before so know the area well and loved being in the centre of the village. The only downside for us was the noise of local dogs barking during the night, not much the owners can do about this!

We would certainly recommend and would stay here again if we return.

Owner's Response: Dear guests, many thanks for your kind words. Helen and Neil do a great job as property managers, we think so too. What a good idea to put a small fridge on the top floor. We will do this! We hope to be able to welcome you again. Kind regards Caro (owner)

"It does exactly what it says on the tin"

  • 4 of 5

No need to go into detail on this lovely, recently renovated little house. The description is "spot-on". So, if you're a couple who like to holiday in a traditional setting alongside the locals this must be be on your short list.

It's reassuring to know that you have very professional and competent property managers living nearby if any issue or emergency should arise. (Thankfully we did not have any reason to contact to contact Helen/Neil after they met us at the apt.)

Well done to all.

We would definitely recommend this house to our friends.
