About Laurie and Jean
We are a married couple who have been taking holidays in the Algarve for many years. On seeing Alvor we knew we had found the perfect holiday centre for ourselves, couples and families. In the past Laurie worked in telecoms, TV repairs and minor property rentals while Jean has run a Guest House, done various accounting jobs and worked for the Rural Payments Agency. Our interests now include our married children, grandchildren, good food & wine, photography, patchwork, building websites, and cross-stitch.
Laurie and Jean purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Laurie and Jean chose Alvor
After discovering Alvor the next job was to find the perfect place to buy. We wanted and got, with lots of local help from ex-patriots, a holiday apartment rather than a residential flat, at a location equi-distant from the village, beach and harbour. In addition we were very impressed with the on-site swimming pool and delightful local restaurants and shops. Travelling to the apartment takes less than 1 hour by car from Faro, the international airport serving the Algarve. Being away from flight paths was a consideration yet we are just a few Kilometers from local towns and other holiday resorts. Added to this a trip by car or tour bus will quickly take you into the nearby mountains to enjoy fabulous views of the coastline.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is very bright, south facing, and welcoming. As you enter you will probably immediately feel relaxed, yet safe. You will find you are on first floor, reached by lifts or stairs from street level or the cool underground car-park. The sun hits both balconies most of the day so there will be plenty of opportunity to relax and enjoy the warmth. Our friendly, sociable and helpful on-site agents will meet you to hand over the keys and pool pass (summer months), show you the apartment and provide you with a starter pack so you can begin what we hope will be a wonderful holiday experience. On our visit(s) each year we replace items that need renewal plus often get busy freshening up some paintwork for our guests to enjoy. Most locals you may meet speak good English.
