Explore the beauty of Alvor from holiday lettings

Love the whitewashed fishing homes of Albufeira, but not sure about the buzzing crowds after dark? Sold on the Algarve's shimmering yellow beaches, but don't want the hustle of Lagos? Enter Alvor. Small, sleepy and surrounded by coastline so wonderful it'll have you snapping photographs at every turn, it's a more cerebral alternative to the hotspots of the south coast. With Alvor holiday rentals perched upon the pine-studded cliffs and dotted along the edge of the Odiaxere River, it isn't hard to find a taste of the old Algarve here.

Things to do

Sightseeing near Alvor holiday lettings

Choose an Alvor holiday rental close to Praia Tres Irmaos or Praia Alvor and wake up to the sound of crashing waves and the smell of salty breezes straight from the Atlantic. Explore some of the most-handsome beaches in the Algarve or hit the boardwalk trails of the Ria de Alvor Nature Reserve, a corner of the region that not many people see. Coalescing around the end of the Odiaxere River, the reserve forms a beautiful estuary of grasses and wetlands, where rare birds and animals can be seen in an abundance.

Activities

Fun things to do near Alvor holiday homes

Leaving the high-adrenaline pursuits and hedonism for its neighbouring resort towns, Alvor seems content with the more laid-back side of life. Whether enjoying 18 holes in the shade of royal palm trees on one of the nearby golf courses or browning yourself on the sands of Praia da Rocha, you can rest assured there's plenty here to help you unwind. Dolphin watching, boat trips and bouts of traditional seafood can also be thrown in for good measure.

Day trips

Best excursions near Alvor holiday homes

Alvor is the ideal base camp to explore the Algarve region. Holiday homes are available near places like Ria Formosa, a set of barrier islands with hiking and biking trails near beautiful beaches, and Ponta da Piedade, a scenic coastal rock formation with caves and grottoes to explore by boat. You could also visit Tavira Island, a small island with white-sand beaches, and Praia Dona Ana, a serene cove beach with colourful cliffs and clear waters.

Weather

Local weather for your stay in Alvor holiday homes

Alvor follows the same pattern as the rest of the beach towns along the south coast of the Algarve. Most travellers book the high summer months of June, July and August, when the mercury regularly hits peaks of 30 degrees in the daytime. However, Alvor holiday rentals aren't always as in-demand as those in neighbouring resorts and you can usually find the perfect pad with a pool or sea views even during the warmest and most-popular period of the year.

Natural features

Enjoy the great outdoors in Alvor

One side of Alvor faces the Atlantic Ocean and is lined with a duo of beaches, Praia Tres Irmaos and Praia Alvor. These rank among the most handsome in Portugal, with boulder-spotted shores, frothing waves and dolphin pods out at sea. The other side of the city faces the Odiaxere River, offering something unique with its wetlands and brackish lagoons. You can see the best of these at the Ria de Alvor Nature Reserve, a haven for birders and hikers that sprawls between the coast and the dunes.
