About Pedro Correia

The owners are Pedro and Isabel that live currently in Doha the Football World Cup .

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. All the materials and details were picked directly by us.

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 alrge sandy beach.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is fully equipped. It has a weekly cleaning service, air-conditioning and a garden with a barbecue. Fantasic terrace with good sea views.

Fabulous property, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 weeks in this beautiful property. First time in Alvor....... Certainly won't be our last as we loved it!! The villa is much bigger than we thought and the photos don't really do it justice. Everything has been provided that you could possibly need for a very comfortable stay. Situated a 5 minute walk from the beach with a sea view from the roof top terrace. All arrangements and queries were handled promptly and politely by Isabel & Pedro. The housekeeper and her husband keep the property in immaculate condition indoors and outdoors. 5 minute walk to the marina or the town centre so no need for taxis apart from the day we went to Portimao. The only improvements we would suggest is another couple of sun loungers and a small table and chairs for the roof terrace as we enjoyed a few drinks and snacks in the evening while enjoying the last of the sunshine. Will definitely return to Alvor and to no. 14.

Fantastic accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here early this summer with our 2 small children. The villa was fantastic, really comfortable, clean and spacious (good night's sleep in comfy beds). Kitchen was well-equipped for eating-in (which we had to do a lot of!), but if you want to get out it's within easy walking distance of all the amenities of Alvor. The outside space was wonderful, with the garden and different balconies/terrace there was always somewhere with sun or shade depending on your preference; and well-enclosed for the kids. The location was perfect, just between the town and the beach (5 mins walk, 10 with slow children) easy to reach everything but nice, quiet neighbourhood, and you have great views from the roof terrace.

Good communication from Pedro and Isabel, very accommodating.

Would absolutely recommend this property; the best holiday accommodation we have had, would definitely stay here again.
