Everything positive that was written about this apartment already is true and the reviews made the decision to pick this apartment easy for us (2 adults and our 16 yr old twins) - we were not disappointed. I had a slight reservation about being on the ground floor (security wise) but this turned out to be a huge advantage - going to and from the pool etc... The apartment is huge in a very secure, quiet complex in a nice area with restuarants / a shop nearby (walking distance) and Alvor is only 2km away - I'd recommend a car / taxi (only €5 to Alvor).
It was pleasure dealing with Liz and I cannot fault this rental experience in any way whatsoever.
We spent a week in Alvor in early July. The apartment was fantastic and really suited our needs. Spacious, clean, all mod cos, great wifi and in a good location. The patio and its proximity to the pool was the real winner for us - no need to worry about the kids being too far away - no hiking up and down stairs or up and down corridors. Although its a bit out from Alvor it was perfectly manageable, some nights we drove, some nights we walked. There are some lovely restaurants nearby. All in all a great place to stay and I would highly recommend it. The owner - Liz - was a pleasure to deal.
We've just returned from a fantastic holiday at this apartment. We were delighted to find it was even bigger than it looked on the photos.
It was a little further out of Alvor than we'd imagined but having a lovely bakery, a mini-market and a few great restaurants nearby made up for this.
We loved the enormous terrace and the fact that we were virtually next to the pool.
We also loved Alvor town centre-it had a friendly safe atmosphere. We were spoilt for choice when it came to eating out, there is an abundance of fantastic restaurants.
We tended to use the pool in the morning then visit a beach in the afternoon. We lived the dramatic coastline.
All in all the apartment was the perfect base for a fabulous holiday.
Last year's holiday at this apartment was so good that we had to return. This time we were all adults and we had yet another brilliant time. Everything in the apartment was as good as last year and had everything we needed. Kitchen fully equipped, great patio with table, chairs, parasol and sun beds. There is a barbecue which we used and a terrific pool.
The boardwalk, beach and harbour area with all the restaurants are all a half hours stroll away and we got a taxi back up at around 5 euros each time.
We cycled, golfed, learned to surfboard, took a day trip to nearby Lagos and caught fish for a barbecue.
There are two coffee shops nearby which we liked for coffees/ breakfast. Invicta just up the road and Mel and Canela round the corner. The Chicken Tavern and Por de Sol are both lovely local restaurants. A Lota and Casa de Rio are worth visiting in the town.
