Apartment in Alvor, Western Algarve, Portugal - 5 Minutes Walk Into Alvor Centre
About Peter Maxfield
Sharon my wife and myself have managed our own family travel company for over 35 years. Over the last 35 years we have holidayed all around the Algarve region. With Sharons love of shopping, my love of golf, and our combined interest in nice food/restaurants, we find this to be a perfect destination.
Peter Maxfield purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Peter Maxfield chose Alvor
As you can imagine over the last 35 years we have stayed in various styles of accommodation from hotels to villas. On our last visit we stayed in an apartment at Albur village condominium in Alvor. After many years of discussing a second home in this part of the world, we suddenly felt that we had found it!!! The apartment is situated minutes from Alvor town centre, with a traditional local restaurant/bar and convenience store only metres away.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is new. Sharon has taken personal care along with an interior designer to furnish it to a high standard which we hope all our guests will appreciate as much as we do. It houses all the facilities you would expect of a modern high end apartment with the finishing touches of a homely feel. For those who do not want to venture too far, the pool and comfortable sun lounge area is the perfect place to relax. The apartment is very close to a number of great golf courses, all of which I have played a round or two on, and I am happy to give any advice you may need. We are quite sure you will enjoy our apartment as much as we do thanks for looking.

September 2019 stay
A Brilliant apartment in a fantastic location close to all amenities. The apartment has everything and is like a home from home. Alvor is a great resort with exceptional restaurants and beach
I will try not to be biased as this is my parents second home. We have stayed here for many years and not reviewed the property mostly due to not wanting to colour the already wonderful reviews left previous guests at my parents home from home.
I usually go for two weeks with my partner in May every year, which I did this year and as always we find something new to do, a new restaurant or bar to appreciate or some new 'touch' that my parents have added to make our stay just as good as their other guests.
On our return a close friend of mine asked if she minded us going with her family for their first holiday abroad with their five month old baby boy Dexter.
As you can imagine, the pressure was on to ensure they had a good time.
My friend was astonished at how accessible the apartment was for children, not only for the pool and inside the property but also the local amenities such as the local supermarket and restaurants.
What is testament to the apartment is on our return, all we have talked about it is how wonderful our evening meals in the apartment were. Of course we couldn't wait to take them to our favourite restaurants in Alvor, which they loved. But the nights in with wine and food from the local supermarket were truly memorable.
My friend has stayed in many hotels and villas, but was truly bowled over at how homely and inviting the apartment was.
The true result of if my friend and her family liked it? On the last night she asked me, When are we going again?
What more could anyone want.
This property is fantastic. You could not wish or get anything better. The property is very well placed for a very short walk into town and restaurants, but yet is in a quiet allocation. Very high standard apartment with everything you could possible need. Excellent communication from the owner. Five star plus.
Always a pleasure to welcome back great friends, now getting sorted for next year

Can not fault this apartment, modern, clean & very homely.
Third stay in this lovely apartment & already booked again for next year! Excellent welcome pack on arrival & everything you need to make you feel at home, right down to the robes!
Pool right outside your door with your own sun beds & towels too.
On the doorstep to the town, 10 minute walk if that. A little further to the beach but worth the walk.
Thanks Kim Loved having you and all the family, not too long to your next stay
