We had a wonderful time in this lovely apartment in Alvor! The Solrio is in an excellent location, close to all the bars and restaurants but quiet and relaxing. Superb views from the roof terrace and the large balconies. Well equipped inside, lots of space, a home from home!

Gaby & Geoff were a delight to deal with, from initial enquiries to booking and completion. Highly recommended.

Well situated modern apartment with stunning view

  • 5 of 5

Spent a comfortable week in this apartment enjoying glorious weather, views and sunsets from the balconies and roof terrace. The apartment is clean and tidy, light and airy and had everything we needed for our holiday. We enjoyed the sunny, swimming pool with its personal sun loungers. The secure apartment has an underground carpark and is well placed to stroll into the old town, visit the church, harbour and beaches. We used the nearby supermarket after doing our main shop at a large supermarket in Portamao. We liked Alvor, especially its harbour and old town which has many restaurants, bars and beach bars. We enjoyed the boardwalk facility and used this to reach the contrasting beaches at both ends of the long bay, on foot and using the apartment bicycles. We hired a canoe from the harbour/old lifeboat station(?) and explored the estuary at high tide, getting a lovely view of Solrio apartments.

Stylish luxury perfectly provided

  • 5 of 5

Exceeded our expectations in all respects.

Entry instructions for our December booking were detailed and well written. The apartment is very secure, so care is important to ensure instructions are followed. Easy, secure parking in the garage with direct access to lift.

Spotlessly clean, luxurious, comfortably furnished and well equipped.

Easy walk to the town centre, and beyond to the boardwalks.

Scenic sunsets from the living room balcony.

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.

The property is in one of the best locations in Alvor, quiet with superb views, less than a 2 minute walk from the main restaurant & bar area, 2 minutes from the nearest supermarket, 5 minutes from the harbour & about 10 minutes from one of the best beaches on the Algarve. With 2 pools on site & less than 10 minutes from the heated municipal, pool open all year round. A truly unique & convenient location. There are several Golf courses within a few minutes drive including Alto Golf, Penina, Gramacho & Palmares. The area also offers a wealth of other facilities including a Marine Zoo & Aquapark, Zoo, Karting at Portimao Racetrack & of course beautiful scenery including the Monchique mountains & other magnificent beaches. Boat trips for fishing or exploration from Portimao or the historic town of Lagos, which is about a 15 minute drive away. For any “twitchers” the apartment looks out onto the bird sanctuary at Vale da Lama.
