Apartment in Alvor, Western Algarve, Portugal - Shared Pool, 5 mins Walk to Beach and Village Centre
About Peter Holdsworth
I have been going to Alvor with my family for 12 years. We all love the experience and have always stayed on the Dunas Do Alvor complex. We would never want to stay anywhere else, it is so close to everything we enjoy. We love the apartments and the complex and all the facilities it has to offer. My son used to love the pool, but now at 21 he is keen to get me on the golf courses as much as possible. Based on the fact I always pay and he always wins, I am not surprised.
Peter Holdsworth purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Peter Holdsworth chose Alvor
We had rented the same apartment for over 10 years. Now, following retirement, we were able to purchase one ourselves.

Fabulous (Aug 2019 stay)
Myself husband and 2 small children stayed in the apartment for 9nights in August, I can honestly say it was wonderful! Firstly Peter the owner was great we had a late check in and he still ensured we was well looked after and knowing we had small children he put some basic in the apartment ready for our arrival (bread,milk, water eg) the apartment had everything you could wish for from a self catering apartment and is extremely spacious. The apartment is situated on a small square with a few bars, restaurants and shop which great. The local town is just 10mins walk where they are loads of restaurants just like the discrimination says. The beach is also just a 10min walk and the harbour is beautiful. The pool area is private so never once did we fight for a bed even if we got there mid day. This place would not disappointed if your looking for a relaxing laid back time away....... thanks again peter we WILL be returning

Fantastic holiday in a beautiful setting
Apartment was clean, spacious and had everything you needed for a great holiday. It's on a lovely complex and is close to beach, shops & restaurants, would definitely love to go back!
I really enjoyed staying in this clean, spacious and comfortable apartment. I walked in and
felt at home as everything is tastefully arranged. The bathroom is amazing. The kitchen area
is totally sufficient for a holiday. Radio, Television all works well and books to read are also
available. You can walk up to town which has a lot of character and also the walk to the
beach is very nice and not long. If you want a home away from home...this is the right choice
Apartment. ENJOY! Barbara Pennock
