Lovely apartment, tastefully furnished

5 of 5
Brilliant location in Alvor. We have stayed many times in Albur Village and this is the best apartment due to the garden area, additional private sun beds and it being a spacious well decorated apartment. Thank you to Mr Mace and Alises. Jane, Dale, Sam and Megan

Excellent!

5 of 5
This is a beautiful,spacious,clean and well equipped apartment on the ground floor. The terrace is a great size with a gate through to the pool area. It's in the best location for both the town and the beach. This was our first time in Alvor but won't be our last.It was such a good find with lovely restaurants,cocktail bars and a fantastic boardwalk that goes on for miles. We went on a boat trip along the river to Silves which was a lovely day out.The booking process was made so easy by Yasmin and she also arranged our taxis for the airport.This apartment would be our first choice to return too and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.
