The ornate carvings around the doors are testament to the magnificent craft work of the Alvor region.

The caves of Joao de Areus and the red cliff backed beaches of Praia dos Tres Immaos are well worth investigation if you have time when staying in an apartment in Alvor.

Excellent apartment

5 of 5
Excellent,clean and well furnished property. It was on the 10th floor but was well serviced by two lifts. A good supermarket directly adjacent to the block was a boon. Hand over on arrival was prompt and efficiently carried by the friendly Rebecca and departure arrangements were equally smoothe. Air con would have been nice on the hottest week of the year ( or a bigger fan!) but did not overly bother me. Would have no hesitation in recommending the apartment.

HomeAway is terrible but villa was lovely

4 of 5
Beware, the HomeAway website lets you book stays mid-week, sends you a confirmation so you go book your flights, then the local agent for the villa contacts you to say you can only book full weeks starting on the weekends. They don't care that you have to now change your flights at a huge cost and offer no help. This is not a good website/service. Otherwise, the villa itself is lovely.
