The apartment was well equipped with everything to create evening meals to eat on the rear terrace, you can hear the sea crashing also which is nice. Worth mentioning that both terraces were perfect for our "walking" 2 yr old and we even spotted a family of Portuguese hedgehogs under the pine trees at the rear terrace. We will be coming here again and thank both Liz and Bob the owners for such a lovely place!

The apartment was spotlessly clean and comfortable with everything you would need for a self catering holiday. I don't think I have ever slept so well. The beds were really comfortable and the black out on the curtains kept the light out so we could have a good nights sleep and during the day they kept the heat of the sun out of the bedroom so it was cool at night. Neither of us are fans of air conditioning so when we stayed in May it was a bonus to be able to keep the bedroom cool. The balcony did not get a lot of sun but with a beautiful pool area this wasn't an issue for us. A great base for Alvor and beyond. We will definitely be looking to book this apartment again.
