Simply perfect!

5 of 5
Just returned from Alvor, spent a great 2 weeks here. The Apartment is in an excellent location, on an immaculate golf course, just outside Alvor but close to the beach and a short taxi ride into town. Everything as described, really spacious, clean and comfortable, with a terrific view from the balcony - can't recommend this highly enough and all questions answered quickly by Joanne the owner; the use of the pool and facilities at Alto Golf is a real bonus! Looking forward to our return !
