About Yasmin and Mo Din
We live in Cheshire with our two young daughters and have been regular visitors to Alvor since 2008. We love the beach in Alvor and the relaxed and friendly feel in the village.
Yasmin and Mo Din purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Yasmin and Mo Din chose Alvor
We first visited Sol Rio in 2011 just after it was finished and were not disappointed. In fact we hadn't even left to come home before we had booked for the following year! The development is small (just 30 units) so the gardens and pool are never crowded. Often (even in August) we have the entire pool to ourselves! We bought our first apartment at SolRio in 2013 and it quickly came apparent that demand was so great that if we wanted to enjoy the apartment ourselves and share with guests we would buy another as soon as one came available - and now we have three! Before buying we looked at other apartments in Alvor, but somehow none had the 'special something' that is Sol Rio - the fabulous location, the contemporary style, the 'at home' feeling.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartments are very much our home away from home and we aim to make our guests feel welcome and at home. We hope, like us you will enjoy your stay in Alvor and return many times. We want your holiday to be pleasurable and memorable, so if there is anything we or our management team in Portugal can do to make your visit perfect please don't hesitate to ask. We were excited to be able to purchase two more apartments at Solrio in 2017. This will give us greater flexibility when visiting with friends and family and also mean we can provide even more guests with their ideal holiday accommodation.

Beautiful apartment with all day sun first on front then after 12 on back terrace until sun down. Everything you need in the apartment and only a stroll into the village and restaurants and bars. Pingo Doce supermarket 3 minute stroll across the road.

a wonderful stay
We loved this apartment, it is so comfortable and has a welcoming atmosphere that makes you feel immediately at home, it is very spacious for a one bedroom apartment with a very large patio, it is extremely well equipped and only five minutes from the main street with bars, restaurants and shops. Booking was very simple and Yasmin was extremely helpful and pleasant to contact. We really hope to stay here again next year.
Hi Jan & Paul, thank you so much for your review and we are delighted to have been able to confirm your booking for 2018. We look forward to welcoming you back.
A five star apartment in Alvor
We have stayed in and around Alvor for many years and this apartment in Sollrio is the best yet.
It is very well equipped and in an ideal location.
Alvor is a picturesque village, popular with both the Portuguese and those from further afield. The narrow cobbled streets wind down to the fishing harbour where there are many restaurants, cafés, bars and shops.
Fresh local fish is in abundance, together with many traditional Portuguese restaurants as well as BBQ, Italian, Indian and Mexican. Among our personal favourites are D'Angelo, which serves fabulous Italian food at very reasonable prices. Just head for the church and look for the queue out the door and a warm welcome from Rocco.
The fabulous 3 mile beach is rated one of the best on the Algarve and just a 10 minute walk from the property. A leisurely walk along the boardwalk, through the nature reserve, can take you from the beach side restaurants and sun loungers to a deserted area of golden sand.
Alvor is popular with kitesurfers and windsurfers, offering ideal, safe conditions, and a kitesurf school. You can simply watch this exhilarating sport from the sand dunes or if you're feeling more adventurous take a few lessons from Nelson at Alvor Kitesurf School.
For golf enthusiasts the Penina Championship Golf Course is approximately 10 minutes away by car, the Palmares about 20 minutes by car and Boa Vista about 40 minutes. Other golf courses (Alto, Gramacho and Quinta de Morgado) are all about a 15 minute drive away.
Boat trips are available from Alvor harbour or from Lagos or Portimao marinas. Family entertainment includes two water parks, a marine park with dolphin and seal shows (all with bus service) and a zoo at Lagos.
Historic places to visit by car or coach tour include Lagos, Silves and Loule and there are tours to the Monchique Mountains and jeep safaris to the surrounding area.
