Only 5 mins walk from Alvor centre and 10 mins to the boardwalk where you can access the beach. Both bedrooms are lovely and each has its own full ensuite bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped for those who want to cook. The lounge balcony is great for relaxing with the sun all day if you don't fancy chilling by the pool. Pingo Doce supermarket is only 5 mins walk. You do not need a car to enjoy Alvor when staying here.
