The best equipped kitchen with everything any cook would need. Flawless booking, meet and greet and service from the owners and will certainly return. Solrio still the best accommodation in Alvor and thus apartment does not disappoint.

The property was beautiful,comfortable bed with good quality bedding etc,the 2 bathrooms was a added bonus,the kitchen had everything you needed and the pots, utensils and pans were spotless and a pleasure to use. The living room was comfortable and very tastefully furnished. We were not able to use the big patio area as in winter it was chilly but the front patio was a little sun trap. Everyone on site despite all the nationalities were so friendly and would stop for a chat. It was very easy to walk to bars and restaurants . It was a pleasure to meet Deleen & Shamus the owners who are lovely. We had a brilliant xmas and new year and to top it all the firework display on new years eve was wonderful. We would recommend this apartment to friends or relatives and we liked it so much we have booked for a 3 week stay.

The apartment was very lovely, comfortable and clean. The apartment is fully equipped , beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen was also very good and had all the equipments you need. Really close to Alvor, a fisherman village where the food is extremely good (amazing seafood) and the beach is incredible. All you need to have a wonderfull time. I really recommend this apartment.
