"quiet, sunny and peaceful"
We didn't meet Paulo the propert owner in person but we didn't need to query anything as the apartment had nearly everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen is very small but had ample cutlery, dishes and glasses. The bathrooms were fine and they and the kitchen had an ample supply of hotwater. The beds were comfortable with a fresh supply of linen and towels each week. The sitting room is old fashioned , the chairs being a bit uncomfortable. The TV was described as satellite , but without a user manual, we were unable to see any English programs . Overall with the weather being good, we enjoyed our holiday
Thank you for your review. Your opinion is very important for us.
We are sorry that you could not use the TV I believe Marta could have helped you during the stay.
We also want to inform that we already taking care of a renovation to this apartment during the winter.
This is a great apartment in a great location. A few minutes work to Alvor centre and to the beach, you couldn't ask for better. Ideal for family fun in the sun. I would really recommend!
Dear Clair, thank you for your review. We are really glad that you have enjoyed.
Really good stay at this apartment. Restaurants and beach within a 5 minute walk and supermarket round the corner. Only negative is that the beds are really hard to sleep on and the amenities are a bit dated but I guess that’s why this apartment is cheaper than others on the complex. It’s an ideal place to stay location wise though and Paulo was very easy to deal with.
Everything about the apartment is good. Possibly becoming a little dated for some but I found it great
Good apartment in good location
The 2 bedroom apartment was fairly big with a good patio area
It is a great location easy walking to beach close to Intermarche supermarket and easy walking to all restaurants and bars in Alvor.
The inside of the apartment although very clean is very basically furnished and the pots and pans crockery etc in kitchen could do with renewed .
The few little issues we had were resolved very quickly by Marta who also changed bedding and cleaned the apartment each week,
We would certainly consider using again for long winter rent if the price was within our budget
Beautiful ground floor apartment
We arrived on the 7th of March in Alvor and the weather was beautiful. We used to stay oin hotels in Alvor the years before, but as we were trabvelling with Anton, our small dog, for the first time, we had to stay in an apartment, as dogs are not accepted in Portugese hotels.
We found a very comfortable, big apartment with all the comfort you need for a relaxing holiday: sunbeds and umbrellas on the terrace, two large bedrooms and bathrooms, a huge livingroom and a kitchen with all the necessary apüpliances: washing machine and dishwasher, vacuum cleaner, coffee machine, nice cups and plates, enough towels etc. The apartment was very tidy and clean; once a week a young lady came to tidy up, which was included in the price.
It is a very quiet resort, the pool is large and beautifukl and although it was still rather cold (16 degrees?) I had a nice long swim every morning. We loved breakfast on the sunny terrace and enjoyed the short footwalk to the beaches.
In Alvor you find many restaurants, where they serve delicious meals, but I prefered shopping in the nearby markethall and cooking things noot available at home.
For nice evenings out we recomment Noras Restaurant (on the right side on a hill in direction of the motorway,, watch the sign), and the Windsurf Beachbar.
All in all, we will definitely come back to Paulos apartment next year. Thanks again to Paulo's father for helping us with the toll :-)

Alvor is a fishing village located 5 km west of Portimão, it became an important port during the time of the Moorish occupation. It once had its own castle, which was destroyed by the earthquake on 1 November, 1755. Originally built by the Carthaginians in 436 AD, it was attacked and plundered by the Christian Crusaders in 1189, at the same time as the larger settlements of Silves and Portimão were taken. What to see. The village itself is a maze of cobbled streets and a 16th-century parish church with a fine Manueline portal featuring a round arch and abstract floral motifs. As well as Alvor beach itself, there are some lovely golden stretches of sand towards Portimão, most notably the small cove of Praia dos Três Irmãos with its magnificent red cliffs. Further east are the deserted caves and grottoes at João de Areus and the quiet, secluded beach of Praia do Vau nearby. Further east, the bustling fishing port of Portimão has many good restaurants and plenty of night-life
Golf: The surrounding area is a golfers paradise with the Championship course at Penina, Alto and Gramacho all within a 5-10 minute drive and over 25 top class courses within one hours drive. The first golf course to be built in the Algarve, the Championship Course of Penina is considered to be the masterpiece of Sir Henry Cotton. It hosted several of the Portuguese Open Championships. Penina also features two nine hole loops: The Resort Course and The Academy Course.
