    How to get there
    Airport: Faro: 65.0 km
    Railway: Portimao: 10.0 km
    Avoiding July & August car hire is relatively cheap & the main road (A22) is generally very good & quiet due to the 5 - 6 euro toll. The N125 is not as quick, the old main road, but is toll free.

    If outside of these 2 weeks we tend to hire a car for the convenience of accessing the larger out of village supermarkets + it affords trips to Lagos, the beautifully unspoilt & very quiet western coast (waves like you wouldn't believe) & up into Monchique where Donkeys are still used on a daily basis & the pace of life is an echo to yesteryear.

    Taxi / Mini Bus Hire is easy to organise with ex pat companies living & operating from Alvor, plus a host of Mercedes Government Taxis available 24/7 within a 3 minute walk adjacent the roundabout as you enter the village...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago for a stay in April 2015 NEW

We booked this apartment for a week in April, and can quite honestly say it is one of the best privately owned apartments we have stayed in. It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday, décor is lovely, very spacious rooms, very very clean. A very good supply of towels, beach towels and bed linen. Everything you would need... more

Many thanks Jane, not much else to add really as you've said it all. We're so pleased you had a great holiday & appreciate the time taken in submitting this review. All the best, Chris & Jackie more

We had 3 weeks in this apartment and found it to be very well supplied with just about everything you might need. A walk across the nature reserve of a few hundred yards brought us straight on to the beautiful beach. Typical Algarvian rocks at one end and wide open sands at the other. Lots of great bars and restaurants... more

Management response:

Apologies Tony for not appearing to have responded earlier, I did but from my phone & it obviously failed. We're so pleased you had a great holiday & that Alvor / Vila da Praia / our apartment helped to make that possible. Thanks for choosing to stay with us & we'll hopefully see you next year, Chris & Jackie more

We had nine wonderful days in this apartment. The complex of Vila Praia is safe and secure with attractive gardens and a lovely pool. We were happy that there are no restaurants/ bars on site and as there are many within easy walking distance this proved no problem. The apt itself is super - really well appointed. I can't think... more
