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.

Having been largely flattened by the 1755 earthquake, the only point of special interest is the stunning little church of Igreja Matriz, which survived from the 16th Century. The ornate carvings around the doors are testament to the magnificent craft work of the Alvor region.

Lovely apartment, tastefully furnished

5 of 5
Brilliant location in Alvor. We have stayed many times in Albur Village and this is the best apartment due to the garden area, additional private sun beds and it being a spacious well decorated apartment. Thank you to Mr Mace and Alises. Jane, Dale, Sam and Megan
