First of all I must thank Laura and Tarak for letting us rent their property for our holiday with our daughter, son-in-law and twin grandchildren. From the start of our booking everything went very smoothly and responses to emails were always very quick and very informative. We found the apartment to be outstanding. Everything that you would need and use in your own home was there for our use. The property was very tastefully decorated and well cared for. The pool and grounds in the area were well kept and maintained. Helia the property manager was there to meet us when we arrived and was very helpful and also came to say goodbye. Our only disappointment was that we had to come home. We enjoyed it so much. It was our third time at VDR and we hope to return God Willing. Kind Regards Bill & Lorraine

This was like home from home, had absolutely everything we needed and was spotlessly clean and so modern. There was plenty of space for for our family 2 adults and 3 kids and there was a brilliant supermarket just round the corner which was really inexpensive. The pool was also excellent and so clean. Alvor itself is a beautiful village just a short stroll from the apartment with so many wonderful restaurants we were spoilt for choice! Will be recommending this accommodation to family/ friends and cannot wait to return to Albur village in the near future! Thank you so much for a truly memorable holiday! ☺️

Apartment had everything we needed for a very enjoyable stay, very clean, well maintained and finished to a high standard. The same is true of the complex including main pool and smaller kids pool. Added bonus is the supermarket downstairs. Large balcony with the morning sun. Short walk to heart of the town. Slightly further to the beach but we managed fine with a 3 & 5 year old in tow and it is worth the effort.
