This was like home from home, had absolutely everything we needed and was spotlessly clean and so modern. There was plenty of space for for our family 2 adults and 3 kids and there was a brilliant supermarket just round the corner which was really inexpensive. The pool was also excellent and so clean. Alvor itself is a beautiful village just a short stroll from the apartment with so many wonderful restaurants we were spoilt for choice! Will be recommending this accommodation to family/ friends and cannot wait to return to Albur village in the near future! Thank you so much for a truly memorable holiday! ☺️

Apartment had everything we needed for a very enjoyable stay, very clean, well maintained and finished to a high standard. The same is true of the complex including main pool and smaller kids pool. Added bonus is the supermarket downstairs. Large balcony with the morning sun. Short walk to heart of the town. Slightly further to the beach but we managed fine with a 3 & 5 year old in tow and it is worth the effort.

The apartment is stunning and we felt instantly 'at home' there. The facilities at Vila Da Praia are perfect and we sincerely hope to be able to return there again next year after falling in love with the place.
