If you interested in staying in Alvor the location is impossible to beat. The property is steps away from the main street with a variety of bars and restaurants. There is nearby free on street parking too, if you have rented a car like we did. We used the patio area for breakfast each morning and the sun deck is wonderful for either soaking up the sun in the afternoon or having a relaxing drink and watching the sunset in the evening. The entertainment setup was great when we wanted a break from the sun, with a large smart TV, and fast WiFi connection throughout the house. We also would have been lost without the parasols and other beach equipment the owners have provided for guest use. We would normally stay in hotels on our holidays and were slightly apprehensive about booking our accommodation through sites like homeaway, but we needn't have worried. Communication with Zoe before we made the trip was first class and the experience when arriving and departing couldn't have been easier. Overall, we couldn't have been happier with our booking decision and we will definitely be back!

We were met by Helen and shown around. This apartment is beautiful, modern, bright and spacious, with everything you could need. There was also a welcome pack which was greatly appreciated. 2 balconies which capture both morning sun and the evening sun set is amazing. An extra bonus is the english channels and sky sport. The location of the apartment is so convienent. A few minutes stroll into the village. If you have a car which e did( you don't need a car) the under ground garage is so convienent and easilly accessible. Would love to return again but these apartments are in high demand. Thanks again. Mike and Eileen.
