A perfect location with a stunning view

  • 5 of 5

This house is just a dream away from home. Its location is perfect, shops, restaurants outside your door. The view of the marina and Atlantic ocean is stunning. The house itself has every modern appliances, the wifi system is available all over the house. We used to look forward every night sitting on the balcony having our bottle of wine watching the local fishing boats returning at night with their catch. We look forward to returning next year.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

The property was just perfect with the best views of Alvor. Couldn't fault the way the property was kitted out and felt so homely even with a very clean and modern interior.

It was great to be in the heart of the town but set in a quiet road away from the action for a peaceful nights sleep with the distant sound of the sea.

Sonne im März

  • 4 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung war, wie schon von vielen Urlaubern vor uns bewertet, sehr gut.

Die Buchung und die Begrüßung vor Ort waren super.

Der Blick auf Hafen und Meer ist großartig. Auch die Umgebung ist sehr angenehm.

Ein kleiner Park direkt vor der Tür und immer (zumindest in der Vorsaison) einen Parkplatz vor der Tür.

Ein wenig mehr Sauberkeit seitens des Reinigungspersonals wäre allerdings wünschenswert gewesen.

Es waren nur Kleinigkeiten wie z.B. eine völlig ranzige verfettete Pfanne im Schrank. Leider hinterlassen einige Mieter die Küche nicht wie es sich gehört. Aber das müßte vom Reinigungsdienst besser überprüft weden.

Allerdings wurde der defekte Kühlscharank am Anreisetag sofort ausgetauscht.

Unter mehr als 300 Fernsehkanälen war, trotz mehrmaligem Suchlauf, nur ein deutsches Programm. Fanden wir sehr Schade, vor allem wenn das Wetter weniger schön gewesen wäre.

Aber vielleicht ist ja bei unserer nächsten Buchung alles super.

Die Wohnung ist sehr empfehlenswert und wir würden, trotz der kleinen Mängel immer wiederkommen.

Belle maison de village face à la mer

  • 5 of 5

La maison se trouve dans le vieil Alvor avec une vue sur le port de pêche et de plaisance et la mer, c'est magnifique ! la maison est refaite à neuf, tout est propre et est très jolie avec un sol en marbre très agréable lorsqu'il fait chaud. C'est idéal pour un couple et rien ne manque, wifi , télévision (inutile en vacances), .... Tous les commerces et restaurants sont à côté et inutile de se servir de la voiture. L'accès à la plage se fait par des sentiers recouvert de bois pour ne pas abîmer les dunes. L’accueil d' Helen est très sympathique et nous avons eu tous les renseignements concernant la maison et la ville d'Alvor. Merci. Je recommande vivement cette maison si vous cherchez un endroit typique de l'Algarve et non un lotissement pour touriste !
