Good family villa in Alvor

4 of 5
Just wanted to let you know that we all had a great holiday at your villa. The garden space and the pool were perfect, especially for the children, plenty of room for them to play. It is ideally placed for a stroll into town for a meal and we also made use of the BBQ. The car rental which you organised for us was excellent, thank you. All in all we had a lovely time (thank you for including the good weather in the price 😎) we have already told friends and family how nice it was.

First time in Portugal and definitely will not be the last. Alvor is an unspoilt village with restaurants at every corner.Cute and friendly, with 6km of boardwalks to the beaches and lagoon, where you can watch birds. The apartment is within 100meters of the port/lagoon, and beach is an easy walk away. The apartment is spacious, very comfortable and very clean.The heating off season is good, and the air-conditioning in summer seems really effective, even though in April temperatures were in the early 20 to mid 20s. There is a balcony for every time of day, facing east or west and a superb roof top terrace with harbour/lagoon views Very nice indeed, and would not hesitate to recommend to friends. The only kitchen equipment we would recommend to the friendly owners would be a simple cafitiere as the Bosch coffee maker did not make the coffee hot enough for our taste-but that is a minor issue and very easily resolved. Well done-the owners and the neighbour who greeted us made us feel very welcome indeed.
