A wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot to base our holiday vacation. Once we got oriented it was easy to get around town; everything we needed was within walking distance. The restaurants, shops, and markets are plentiful and varied - there's no shortage of great food and drink. Walking on the beach and boardwalk with a stop for tea or soup was a daily activity. It was nice to stroll barefoot on the beach in December! It was also nice to drive to other spots for day trips.

The condo was just as advertised: clean, comfortable, and secure. Whether sharing sunsets with wine and snacks on the balcony, morning coffee on the roof deck, or cooking a full meal in the well appointed kitchen - we enjoyed it all.

Very modern and close to Alvor centre and beach

  • 4 of 5

We loved this apartment in fact it's one of the best we have stayed in, in Alvor.

It is very well equipped and modern but also is homely. It is handy for Pingo Doce supermarket yet within easy reach of the wonderful restaurants that are a feature of this resort. An added bonus is the view over the river and estuary which changes constantly.

The beach is within easy reach and a car is not needed.

Just to say that the only slight minus was some barking dogs during the day and occasionally at night time. However this seems to happen all over Alvor, and in this case it wasn't as bad as some others we have experienced, and I have to say it certainly would not put us off returning as the plus points far outweighed this slight irritant.

Fabulous apartment, Fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay at this apartment- it is spotlessly clean and has the perfect balance of being centrally located yet far enough away for that all important peaceful nights sleep. It has all the facilities you require and the roof terrace is private and ideal for sunbathing during the day and then for that drink of an evening if you decide to have a couple of nights in. Gaby and Geoff are a pleasure to deal with and answer all queries quickly and efficiently. I will have no hesitation returning to this apartment and hope to do do next year

Beautiful, well appointed modern property

  • 5 of 5

Very modern, beautifully appointed property, perfectly situated. Very well equipped with everything you may need. The apartment is a 3 minute walk to the square in the centre of Alvor. Within walking distance of the beaches and the Boardwalk (spectacular walking over the river estury). The main supermarket in Alvor less than 5 minutes walk. The apartment faces with west overlooking the river and Monchique Mountains. The views from Balcony and Roof Terrace are stunning with beautiful sunsets. We would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting relaxing holiday.

Fantastic Apartment in Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic apartment in a fantastic location in Alvor. We have been to Alvor several times and this is the best apartment you could stay in for quality and location. Apartment is well equipped, clean and spacious. Great views over Alvor, perfect for watching the changing tides and the beautiful sunsets. Close to the centre of Alvor and yet quiet and relaxing. Communication from Gaby and Geoff was easy and made it simple to find and access the apartment.

Thank you, we really enjoyed our stay.
