                                      Lovely apartment, lovely setting

                                      5 of 5
                                      We have stayed in Alvor before a few times in larger hotels. However, we decided to try renting a private apartment, this apartment did not disappoint. We found the apartment through the HomeAway website, Chris was quick to respond and luckily for us our week was available for rental. This was a first time rental for the owners so we were the first people in the apartment. When we arrived in Alvor we were met and given keys and a tour of the apartment. Straight away we could see how Very clean, tidy and modern the apartment was...i am very particular with cleanliness!! It was light, airy and very spacious for the 5 of us, myself, husband 2 yr old daughter and grandparents. We had a lovely view of the pool from the spacious balcony. The complex is situated perfectly for both the beach and the town. Not too far to walk and this is with a pram! The complex was clean and well maintained (apart from however be aware of the lifts breaking down! we got some exercise i suppose walking up and down the stairs). We would not hesitate to come back to this apartment. We really enjoyed our stay both in Alvor and the Apartment.

                                      Have visited Alvor many times but this property by far is streets ahead of any other.It is absolutely gorgeous.It is spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly require.The Pingo Doce supermarket 5 mins over the road is wonderful and so convenient.Booking with Yasmin and Mo was a pleasure and their agents Neil and Helen so professional and helpful.We will definitely return only problem is too many people now know our secret! Thank You so much again for a wonderful holiday.

                                      Amazing villa

                                      5 of 5
                                      We have just returned home from this villa and we are already booking to return there again next year. The pictures of this villa do not do it justice!!! We stayed here for a week with our 2 young children, the service was brilliant with someone waiting for us at the villa to show us around and gave us her number for anything we might need during our stay. The villa was absolutely beautiful with everything we could have needed. The pool was ideal for children and adults with a shallow part along each side which was perfect for the kids, and the front of the pool gradually getting deeper should you want to have a good swim. Inside the villa, the facilities were great - the kitchen was top of the range with a built in ice machine and coffee machine(and beer tap although I think you would need to buy your own keg!) The views from the villa were gorgeous with beautiful beaches just a 5 minute drive away. I really could not fault this villa and would recommend to anyone looking at it to book immediately!!!!!
