The apartment was beautiful and it was a real treat to have it as our holiday home. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed . The terrace is lovely for soaking up the sun and eating al fresco. I cannot fault the apartment in any way and will definitely return again. The short walk into the centre of Alvor is lovely and there are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. The boardwalk and beach are great too and only a ten minute walk away. All in all its perfect.
