Vila da Praia

Overview
Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Alvor, Portimao, Faro District, Algarve
This holiday apartment is set in a recently completed private complex, with a pleasant garden and 2 swimming pools; one for adults and one for children. This bright, daylight filled, ground floor apartment is located near the beach and the centre of the village of Alvor, one of the most beautiful and quiet areas in the Algarve.
Alvor is a fishing village located 5 km west of Portimão. The village itself is a maze of cobbled streets and a 16th-century parish church with a fine Manueline portal featuring a round arch and abstract floral motifs. As well as Alvor beach itself, there are some lovely golden stretches of sand towards Portimão, most notably the small cove of Praia dos Três Irmãos with its magnificent red cliffs. Further east are the deserted caves and grottoes at João de Areus and the quiet, secluded beach of Praia do Vau nearby...

About the neighbourhood
Alvor is a fishing village located 5 km west of Portimão, it became an important port during the time of the Moorish occupation. It once had its own castle, which was destroyed by the earthquake on 1 November, 1755. Originally built by the Carthaginians in 436 AD, it was attacked and plundered by the Christian Crusaders in 1189, at the same time as the larger settlements of Silves and Portimão were taken.
