Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Alvor, Portugal your home away from home

Alvor is an ancient village on the Algarve in Portugal which has managed to stave off the lure of over development so the narrow one-ended streets have retained their charm and the treasure which they hold.

Excellent

5 of 5
We had a very lovely stay at this apartment, the facilities are of a high standard and it was very comfortable. We had a lovely patio/balcony that overlooked the estuary, so every morning sitting looking out with the sun was fantastic. Neil & Helen who greeted us and showed around were very helpful also during the holiday I needed to get a doctor & they informed the best way forward. Alvor is a stunning place to stay. Lots to see, lots of walks and beautiful beaches.

Excellent Apartment in perfect location

5 of 5
First visit to Alvor but very impressed with the whole area. Apartment is in perfect location for access to both the village, with many restaurants and bars, and the beach with its long boardwalks, both only a short walk away. Marion and Louis have equipped the apartment well, there is even English TV which is welcome in the winter months. The apartment was perfect for us but the star of the show has to be the amazing terrace a wonderful area to dine or sunbathe. Marion also kindly arranged an airport transfer for us which we would highly recommend if not hiring a car. Hope very much to return later in the year. Many Thanks Marion and Louis.
