It is a tiny village, blessed with a handful of fine restaurants, a small supermarket and a fantastically atmospheric café meaning visitors to Alcalar holiday rental properties can relax in the knowledge that everything they will need for a well earned break is right on your doorstep.

Fantastic family villa

5 of 5
Stunning villa with all amenities you could need. We went as 2 families with children aged 4 and 1. There was ample space for all of us. Car is required but not far from Alvor and beaches. Simon was excellent to communicate with and ensured we had 2 travel cost/highchairs. Overall I would recommend staying here. The only issue (which can’t be helped) is dogs barking at night from nearby villas but it wasn’t all night. A fantastic base to explore the algarve.

Very warm welcome in a nice stay!

4 of 5
Very private, comfortable and fully equiped apartment with a nice view. A relaxing stay at the luxury pool! But most of all we liked the hospitality of Sandra! She was our fifth star *****! She surprised us with her kindness, welcome foods and drinks,... Thanks Sandra! We had a great time! Best regards, Hendrik and Mieke
