Beautiful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a 10 night stay in this beautiful apartment. We were met by Helen and shown around. This apartment is beautiful, modern, bright and spacious, with everything you could need. There was also a welcome pack which was greatly appreciated. 2 balconies which capture both morning sun and the evening sun set is amazing. An extra bonus is the english channels and sky sport. The location of the apartment is so convienent. A few minutes stroll into the village. If you have a car which e did( you don't need a car) the under ground garage is so convienent and easilly accessible. Would love to return again but these apartments are in high demand.

Thanks again.

Mike and Eileen.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have just had the privilege of spending 10 days in this beautiful apartment. This wasn't our first visit to Alvor, but was our first visit to the Solrio and we just didn't want to come home! Having stayed in Neil & Helen's accommodation before we had no doubt that this apartment would be just as good, well it topped the scales - everything you needed was provided and as soon as you walk in the door you feel like you are at home. We don't actually think the photo's on this site do it justice, the views are to die for and we loved the peace & quiet also. As others have already said, you can follow the sun (if you wish) on the balconies. We enjoyed a morning cuppa on the front balcony and the afternoon sun and the most amazing sunsets from the larger balcony at the rear of the property. Neil very kindly collected & returned us to the airport, and showed us how everything worked in the apartment (including instructions via text when we messed the tv up!) The essential provisions provided for us on arrival were really appreciated (as was Neil's recommendation to the little bakery just down the road, perfect for your morning pastries!) Thank you again Neil & Helen, we kind of wish you didn't have such a great apartment as it may be easier to find availability to return in the very near future! We do hope though, to see you again in 2019, if not before! Clyde & Caroline Moon (& Mum!)

Beautiful apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Booking was straight forward and any questions were answered quickly. We were very lucky to be able to get into the apartment on arrival as we were very early. We have met Neil and Helen before and they were as friendly and professional as before. The small welcome pack was appreciated. The kitchen was well equipped. The whole apartment was spotlessly clean and very modern. It is great that the apartment has a balcony at the front and the back so both the morning and evening sun can be enjoyed. Great selection of TV channels for the children, catch-up TV also available. Wifi also available. There is a main pool, but also a separate children's pool. 4 sun beds for our private use were available by the pool.

The apartment is in a fantastic location close to the town and harbour (5 min walk). It takes about 15 minutes to get to the long sandy beach.
