Just got back from Alvor, had the best time and can't speak too highly of the people and the place.. Just one small tip for parents of babies. The range of jars of baby food on offer at the supermarket was extremely limited and not brilliant to be honest. The Portugese people in the cafes & restaurants were fantastic and more than happy to whip up some baby friendly mushed up food using fresh ingredients. In particular Flo de Sal was a great restaurant for this.If for any reason you were not comfortable with this then take a good supply of food pouches. It was the first time we had taken our one year old on holiday and despite many years of varied travel I was really stressed out at the very thought of how to deal with a baby but Alvor was perfect. If I can help any other stressed parents due to travel soon please let me know!
