Expectations surpassed

5 of 5
We were in this beautiful villa for a month with our 2 poodles. We have looked at this villa for the past few years but were lucky to book it in time for part of our Algarve winter holiday. As soon as you drive into the property you are encased in a beautiful house and garden. As the whole side of the house is floor to ceiling glass, the light, even in winter, is wonderful. Furnishings are top class, beds excellent and well stocked kitchen and appliances. Owners go out of their way to make you feel at home. We will be back.

Fantastic Family Villa

5 of 5
A wonderful villa that is large enough for several families to holiday together. There is a private swimming pool (with a shallow end for children) and plenty of space for lounging and dining both inside and out. there is also a BBQ on a covered patio which is ideal for lunches and suppers and with the sea only minutes away by car and some good local restaurants you have everything you need for a lovely holiday! Can't wait to go back!

Superb

5 of 5
Beautiful apartment with a lovely homely feel with all mod cons. The best equipped kitchen with everything any cook would need. Flawless booking, meet and greet and service from the owners and will certainly return. Solrio still the best accommodation in Alvor and thus apartment does not disappoint.
