It is a very spacious 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment with a large well equipped kitchen. The living and dining area is very large and comfortable and includes a large sofa bed. The balcony is very large and over looks the golf course its perfect for alfresco dining or just have a drink while relaxing. I would not hesitate in recommending this apartment to any of my friends or family. You have use of a swimming pool at the rear of the Apartment which is perfect for relaxing. if you want a larger pool with more activity you can also use the pool at the country club (a three minute drive) where there is a nice bar and restaurant. Within 5 minutes is a beautiful beach with restaurants and bars on the beach. If you are a family looking for a relaxing holiday there could not be a better place to go. it is in a very peaceful setting but close enough to the town not to feel you are missing out in anything. In Alvor you have a huge choice of restaurants and bars for the evening offering every cuisine you could wish for. With the added bonus of being on the golf course its also perfect of those who wish to play. You also have the full use of the country club which includes and indoor swimming pool and tennis courts. We only spent a week there but could have stayed a lot longer it was that nice. We will defiantly return in the near future, it was the perfect holiday from check in to check out.

The villa really is as large and secluded as the photos suggest. It serves as the owners home for much of the year and is furnished and equipped to a very high standard. The paintings on the wall are all Margaret's own (this is a good thing as she is a former art teacher!) and everything has the feel of quality. When the villa is rented the owners live in an apartment underneath the main house, so they were around and about if you needed them but were certainly never intrusive and the house, pool and garden were very much ours. The setting is perfect for an away from it all break. The road past the house is very quiet with only occasional traffic and you will probably hear more birds than cars. I never quite figured out where the land of this property ended and the next began, but we would walk for an hour without meeting a fence or another soul. There's a very nice restaurant 5 minutes away and a 15 minute drive gets you to Alvor, Portimao or Monchique.
