“Prainha has a great pool and good access to a great beach.”
Reviewed 21 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The apartment is very clean and well equipped, the owner was extremely helpful.
It's location in Prainha could be better and the fact that it was on the ground floor without a view was a disappointment at first but after a few days we began to appreciate and enjoy its location. Underground parking was available which was great for keeping the car cool for the evening trips to Alvor or Portimao.
Prainha is well placed for both but just too far to walk so I'd say a car is advisable unless you are happy to limit your eating out to the beach front restaurants of which there are several.
The very good on site pool bar and restuarant shuts at 6pm.
All in all a great place to stay, we would like to buy one of the Prainha properties, one day eh!

“Exceeded our Expectations!”

My husband and 3 teenage children stayed at this Prainha property and it exceeded our expectations! The unit was very spacious, clean, nicely decorated and had everything we could possibly need and more!

Our host, Duarte was most gracious and was always willing to answer any questions that we had. The apartment is just a short walk to the most stunning beach, Praia dos tres Irmaos. There are restaurants that you can eat at right on the beach property and the Atlantic Pool is beautiful as well. There is a very convenient grocery store that has everything you need.

The town of Alvor is so pleasant and has great restaurants to dine in and adorable little shops to browse through. It was our favorite town in Algarve because it wasn't over crowded and is only a short drive from Prainha.

I would highly recommend staying here and would definitely come back!

Thank you Duarte!

“A little bit of heaven”

I Stayed in Duarte's property this month, Prainha-In.
The apartment is really spacious, and provides everything you need on a holiday. When you arrive for a few days, you really don't want to buy washing up liquid, laundry detergents etc - everything was there! The apartment itself was situated in a wonderful setting - a quick walk through beautiful gardens and you are looking out to the sea, heading towards the most beautiful cove - almost a private beach set away from the main stretch of beach in Alvor.
We could not believe it when we discovered the Atlantic pool - set on top of a cliff. I have travelled the world, and I was never so blown away when I arrived here. Duarte was a real gentleman as well, and checked in with us that everything was ok during our holiday. Book this holiday now!

“Price Performance Bad”
Reviewed 30 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

because of the pre, pre season (algarve winter) the daily price is definitely to much with more than 100 €UR per day.
Also it was very cold in all rooms 15° degrees. I must heating the sleeping room with the air condition which is actually for summer season. Other rooms could not be heating by anything.
please note this location is most far away from the cliff coast in this aerea Prainha, pics suggest close to coast but is not reality.
