It even had an eighth bedroom with en suite that I didn't know about. The swimming pool, jacussi , tennis court, table tennis, pool table etc were used by our party constantly. The bedrooms and en suites were lovely and had lots of wardrobe space. The towels were changed half way through the week. For a large Villa it had everything we needed. I have found in the past, great difficulty in getting 7 bedrooms that were all on the ground floor or above. So many of the larger villas have 2 or 3 bedrooms in the basement which is not ideal especially in March, so this Villa was just superb. Two suites on the first floor and the other bedrooms on the ground floor. I have never before been in a Villa that has such a well equipped kitchen. It was incredible. Everything I needed for cooking was there and more besides. The Villa has a back gate that leads out onto the first tee of Penina golf course. That's just about the icing on the cake. Finally I have to say that Spring Villas were a great company to rent from. Right from the beginning of my booking, I could phone them any time if I had a query which is so important so well done, you certainly got it right.

The apartment is situated very close to the harbour and its many fine restaurants. The board walks around the estuary and along the beach were stunningly beautiful and we certainly plan to return to Alvor. Unfortunately there was heavy rain and high winds for the first couple of days, do Maria had to come to our rescue with a couple of convector heaters because it was so cold. We would certainly recommend the apartment to anyone who wants to stay in high quality accommodation, but not to anyone who has issues with climbing stairs. (There are two flights to the apartment and one within the apartment.)

Already booked for the same period next year. The apartment is so conveniently placed, just a short stroll into the beautiful village of Alvor which has to be one of the best kept secrets in the world! Something for everyone 's taste. Weather in January and February a very pleasant average of around 17 degrees. Most comfortable for us. A few days of rain in the six weeks that we were there, but having sampled the summer temperatures in Alvor last year, the winter rains are much needed. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves , many thanks to Yasmin and Mo for allowing us to stay. Looking forward to next year already.
