“Perfect Apartment - has everything you might need!”
Reviewed 31 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Went here with my husband, mom and 11 month old daughter! Travelling with a baby meant I had packed everything I could possible think I needed. Was thrilled to find that the kitchen even had a blender so I need not have packed mine for making baby food. Apartment is so spacious and airy. It is lovely and clean and there is so much storage. The outdoor space is great and the furniture is of good quality and in good condition. Being ground floor meant it was perfect for us with a baby and buggy. We had a car so found the trip in and out of town easy with that, although it is quite walkable taking about 25 min. The pool, gardens and bbq areas were well maintained.

“Alvor in Autum!”
Reviewed 22 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We stayed for 2 weeks with 2 young boys. This was our first trip to Alvor and the Algarve. The apartment is exactly as described and very well appointed and spacious. The location was perfect for us, nice quiet area and being next to the pool is a massive bonus with young children. They were in the pool every day! Amazing weather in October, we were very lucky. Alvor is a lovely little town and having explored the surrounding towns and cities we would definately choose Alvor again. The beaches are beautiful and we spent many hours there soaking up the rays. We would recommend hiring a car as there is so much to do and see in the surrounding areas. We hope to be back one day.

“Wonderful Apartment”
Reviewed 29 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We have stayed here 3 times now and we are never disappointed. It's clean, spacious and modern. We are already thinking of returning next year as it is perfect for us. It is quiet and friendly and the pool is beautiful by day and night. Of all the places we have stayed in the Algarve we like Alvor the best as its still retains its old fashioned charm. The apartment is ideally situated for the off the beaten track beaches and the town. Its close enough to the town to walk into easily and we're in our 60's and far enough away to be peaceful. We found a great restaurant round the corner (5 mins) that we would recommend called Por da sol and Big Reds next door was good too. We will deffinately be back here and highly recommend it for couples and may even bring our grandchildren next year.
