About Martin

Living just near Beaconsfield we are a family that have always enjoyed spending time on the Algarve and, indeed, the picturesque harbour town of Alvor. Our kids are all grown up so our apartment is now being made available for other families to share in this lovely experience.

Martin purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Martin chose Alvor

This property is in a very central location which gives a unique attraction. It's a modern, spacious and comfortable 2 bedroom apartment. Here you are at the very heart of what the Alvor village offers its visitors. Only a 2 minute walk to the top of the strip with all the many bars and restaurants close at hand. However, you are only a 5 minute walk from the harbour and only a 10 minute walk from the beautiful beach. It's a superb central location.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a very secure first floor apartment with underground and gated garage parking. (Parking is a nightmare in Alvor in the summer but you can relax with your allocated spot).

On the roof there is a lovely private pool and sun deck. Here you can relax without being overlooked whilst enjoying the views across the rooftops and out to sea.

There is full lift access to the 1st floor where the apartment is located which provides an easy way to make full use of a kids buggy or grand parents wheelchair. The rooftop pool is accessed via 3 short flights of steps from the top of the lift. (25 steps total).

One of the best holidays we have ever had. Alvor is so beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Martin,we had a wonderful stay in your superb apartment. You were very helpful and accommodating to all our needs. We would highly recommend your apartment. It is very spacious,well equipped and very clean. It is in a prime location to all shops,restaurants,beautiful harbour and beach's. I (mum ) have never felt so relaxed as I did on this holiday and in your home and therefore made my hubby and boys very happy😂?The pool is lovely and no setting alarms to get Sun beds,just go up and your Sun beds are there. Great idea labelling them😀? Felt like our own private pool. We will definitely be reccommening to all our friends and family. Our boys are 12 and 17 and had a great time. Beds were a good size,fab having two shower units plus bath. WiFi was excellent and best of all I had no holiday clothes washing to do when we got home as machine was great,along with great drying on balconey😀?.Wish we were still there,untill next time as there will please God be a next time.

Alvor in February

  • 5 of 5

An excellent apartment in a perfect location, right in the old part of the town. We had lots of room and all facilities. The electricity cut out one day but all was fixed by Clare, our local contact, within 30 minutes. An information pack for the apartment would be useful, but it was a small matter for us as we knew the town well. Lighting in the lounge was not really bright enough to read by in the evening, so we used the brighter lamps that we found with the spares.

Great apartment, great central location

  • 4 of 5

Everything made easy for you prior to and on arrival. Local phone numbers sent day before arrival and having made contact with the key holder we were greeted on time and escorted around the apartment. The apartment itself is very under-stated from the outside but very roomy inside with the benefit of a pool and roof terrace, which is highly unusual for this type of property. Underground parking with a electric gate was another winner for us, again not the norm for this type of property.

I would definitely recommend this apartment and would want to stay here again.

Alvor at its finest

  • 5 of 5

Was so impressed with this apartment fantastic location if you love Alvor and all it has to offer , just beside buddy's bar for a wee cheeky after hours nightcap or two and if hungry can get fed also .As for the apartment it was immaculate and very welcoming with the basics already in and wine to boot let the holidays begin ,Claire and Marion was alway on hand if you needed anything and Gus also lol.The roof pool is brilliant for that wee chill time in the sun if your feeling lazy and can't be bother moving to far (more like hungover) can't recommend this apartment enough and can't wait to be back .Thanks so much Martin for sharing you beautiful apartment with us
