There were sufficient kitchen utensils etc for us to be able to cook most of our meals in the apartment which we appreciate. The apartment was within walking distance of most things in the town of Alvor. Information about the area was provided and much appreciated. We visited many places on the àp Algarve and Vincentian Coast. Helen was an excellent communicator as we planned this stay in Alvor so we felt welcomed and comfortable The beds were very comfortable which is important for us. Since the pool is unheated, I used the good quality municipal pool for my needs.The grocery store on site was a great convenience . We had a great first stay in the Algarve. Alvor is a great town for its size, convenience and the beauty of the boardwalks and beaches.
