This was our third visit to the Algarve (second to Alvor) and the best one yet. This apartment is so relaxing, with lovely views over the pool and out to sea. Nothing better than waking up in the morning, opening the patio doors and taking in the view before moving onto the other balcony to have breakfast. Before we arrived I insisted that I was not going to cook at all and we would eat out every night, but the apartment was so nice I relented as it was such a pleasure to spend time in it. All the rooms are spacious and nicely furnished, beds are very comfortable (always important) and the kitchen has everything you need.

The position of this apartment is perfect in a quiet gated complex with immaculate gardens only a short walk from the beach and the town, The pool is very well kept and peaceful, never had a problem getting a sun bed at this time of year and there were 4 of us.

The only thing that was missing in the apartment was a full length mirror, but maybe after all the food I consumed it was best that there wasn't one !

We especially enjoyed a sundowner by the river watching the sunset before moving on to one of the lovely fish restaurants that Alvor is so famous for or a walk to the municipal market in the morning to get fruit and veg supplies and look at the catch of the day.

Michael was a pleasure to deal with, always responded quickly to emails and very helpful, we very much hope to visit again next year.

Thanks for a lovely stay.

We stayed in this wonderful roomy apartment for two weeks in June. It was clean when we arrived and a mid week clean with fresh bedding/towels. Bars within a 1 min walk and 5 mins walk into main pebbled street area. Pool was large with plenty of sunbeds. The owner's communication throughout booking was first class Would definitely re visit and recommend

Michael's apartment in the gated complex of Vila da Praia is excellent as is the relatively untouched fishing village of Alvor. The apartment is on the second floor with lovely views of the pool area and out to sea. It is very well equipped, having all the usual appliances and also the luxury of a dishwasher, which is great for those who like to eat in. The apartment is very clean and the decor is modern with good quality furniture and very comfortable beds.

It would be difficult to find a better apartment or location - Alvor town being 2 minutes walk and the large golden sandy beach 5 minutes walk. For those who prefer to eat out there are lots of great restaurants to choose from at reasonable prices.

We had a wonderful stay and will definitely be booking this apartment again.

This apartment exceeded our wildest expectations. Michael had thought of everything to make our stay perfect. This luxury apartment is in an ideal position in this private, perfectly manicured complex overlooking the sea and swimming pools. The beach and town centre are only a few minutes stroll away. Booking couldn't have been easier and Michael made the whole experience a pleasant one. I can't recommend this apartment highly enough and I can't wait to return next year!!!

This is a wonderful apartment where the master (en-suite) bedroom has fantastic views over the pool, across the beach and out to sea, with the most comfortable bed! It has a fully equipped kitchen, bigger than the majority of apartments on the complex (we've stayed in a few!) and ample living space for a family. The apartment was immaculately clean and simply but nicely decorated to a high standard and located on the top floor of 3, accessed by stairs or a lift.
The complex is security gated with parking inside the gates and is an easy 5 minute walk to the harbour, beach or town, all with excellent restaurants and shops. There is very good large supermarket (Pingo Doce) 5 minutes drive from the apartment or if you are on foot a smaller supermarket (Alisuper) is just a 5 minute walk away and has all the basics.
Michael made the whole process of booking a friendly, easy and pleasant affair - overall we enjoyed it so much so that we will be returning in the next couple of weeks and can't wait!

Come to Portugal ever year for the last six years and this is the best apartment me and my family have ever stayed in without a shadow of a doubt, apartment is much bigger than expected! Very spacious, comfortable and very very clean. Having two balconies was great , especially as they overlook the pool (handy if you have children) and you can see the ocean from the balcony which is lovely at night.The complex is well run, clean, and safe with a family atmosphere. A great central location with the Main Street and beach both a two minute walk from the complex. Great atmosphere in the town with lots of great restaurants to choose from. Micheal was great! Really nice and very helpful! Apartment is well stocked with kitchen equipment, toys, books there is nothing you could wish for. Cant wait to come back next year!

Paradise.

This was my first time staying in this apartment and I have already booked in for next summer! The balcony overlooks the swimming pool and the sea is just beyond that. It is by far largest and most spacious accommodation in the whole complex with it being the only apartment with two balconies. It is less than a 5 minute walk from Alvor town centre where there is an abundance of small restaurants and cafes and little shops. The whole place is paradise and the apartment itself is in an ideal location.

The rooms were well kept and immaculately clean. There are modern kitchen and bathroom fittings and absolutely anything you could need, or even want. Already looking forward to going back with the family. There are 3 single beds in the place and a large double bed in the master bedroom. The pull-out bed in the living easily slept 2 of us so all in all it was extremely comfortable for us all. A fantastic place to visit and would recommend it to anyone.

Aidan.
