It was comfortable, clean and well equipped. There is plenty of space. Jose responded quickly and was very helpful when the washing machine broke part way through the week. The accommodation was conveniently placed for the town of Alvor, which was a 25 minute walk away, and 6 Euro taxi fare back (uphill). The only problem which we couldn't resolve was a neighbouring dog barking in the early hours of the morning. We had a car so were able to travel around the lovely area. We were thrilled to see the storks with their young in their nests. We will definitely consider returning in the future

Due to the weather,it was a godsend to have the additions of pool ,table tennis and bar football!!!a real life saver! Can't wait to return to relax in the sun in future months!! The local restaurants recommended were fabulous and very friendly.
