About Pedro Correia
The owners are Pedro and Isabel. For over 20 years they lived and worked abroad and are now back in Portugal. Travelling has always been a passion, as you will discover when you enter the house...
Pedro Correia purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Pedro Correia chose Alvor
This property was constructed directly by us and decorated as a summer villa to be used by the family. We love this village because it still retains the charm of an old fishing port but has enough modern amenities. The place is extremely beautiful with a very large sandy beach and close to the best spots in Algarve.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is fully equipped. It has a weekly cleaning service, air-conditioning and a garden with a barbecue. Fantastic roof terrace with good sea views.

We had a lovely week in the beautiful house in Alvor, enjoyed it a lot, the house is great.
Nice house with a brilliant location
We spent 3 weeks in this very nice property in Alvor. The house is situated close to the beach, a five minutes walk, and the same distance from the city centre with good restaurants, shopping and supermarket. Especially the fish restaurant “O arco da velha” is recommended, we went twice and we were not dissapointed, but remember reservations.
The kitchen in the house is well-equipped with all you need. There is a nice outside area with outdoor kitchen and a barbecue. All rooms has aircondition and are spacious. The clue of the house is the roof top terrace with a sea view.
Alvor is very well situated both for the beach but also for tours in the surroundings. We visited both the west coast and also nearby larger cities, Lagos and Portimao. Portimao is best for Shopping, but do the cave boat trip from Lagos by small boat, the actially sail into the caves. We also visited Aqualand water park, also a good experience, buy tickets online the day before, we got a 50% discount.
All comminication with the owners went smooth and everyting worked out as agrees.
All in all this property and area is highly recommended.
Many thanks for your kind review and also for the useful tips for other travellers.
We are very pleased to see that your family has enjoyed Alvor.
We look forward to welcoming you again.
This was our 3rd stay with a 4th booked for next year. The house is absolutely perfect with a wonderful roof terrace for all day sun. Separate garden section at the back offers a bit of a break to chill out. Close to the numerous restaurants which is always a highlight of Alvor and minutes from the beach and Boardwalk
Many thanks for your kind review. We are very happy that your family has consistently enjoyed their holidays in Alvor.
You are always welcome and we look forward for your welcoming you again.
Villa exactly as described and superbly presented, arrival insructionsclear and easy to follow, Perfectly located within a 5 min walk to beaches and village. Views from the terraces uninterrupted to the sea and dunes,beautiful.
A cold water shower on the roof terrace would be ideal as it gets very hot up there.
Especially enjoyed the lovely restaurants and good standard live music in the village.

Nice villa with a good sea view
We had a great stay in good weather. The house offers everything you need for a successful holiday and is ideally located between the city and the beach. You can almost do everything on foot. Especially beautiful is the view of the sea from all the sea facing rooms. Booking and arrangements were very straightforward and professional.
Many thanks for the kind words. We are very happy that you had good holidays in Alvor. We look forward to welcoming you again.
My family had a wonderful holiday staying here last October, they enjoyed it so much they are returning in August.
The villa is in the perfect location, only a short walk to the beach and the town, so there's no need to hire a car, or pay for taxis. Alvor has a fantastic selection of top quality restaurants, some of our favourites were Sereia, The Yacht Club and Windsurf.
Inside the villa exceeded all expectations, the rooms were bright and spacious and the master bedroom had a spectacular sea view from the balcony. The roof terrace was great for sunbathing, especially on a few days when it was a little windy on the beach!
I would definitely recommend this villa, it has everything you need for a great holiday. Thank you Isabel and Pedro.
Many thanks for the feedback. We are really glad your family had a good and relaxing time. We look forward to welcoming you again.
