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).

Fantastic Apartment in the Heart of Town

  • 5 of 5

This modern, well equipped apartment is the ideal base for a relaxing break in Alvor. Local bars and restaurants are a matter of minutes away from the front door yet the and rooftop pool allows you to feel like you have the whole town to yourself. For nights where we didn’t fancy venturing out, the TV system has all UK channels as well as a selection of movies/box sets (proved ideal for the world cup). Both bedrooms are big enough so four adults feel they can sleep comfortably with all of us enjoying a good nights sleep. The welcome was also a really nice touch, fresh bread and milk provided as well as instructions on how to use the underground carpark and all the other features the apartment boasts. In short, I would highly recommend this apartment if you want a relaxing break in Alvor with the luxury of a rooftop pool whilst still being in the centre of the action.

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

Once again had a brilliant time in Alvor . Claire was waiting when we arrived.The apartment was clean with plenty of clean bath and beach towels and some milk,bread,cheese in the fridge. There's every thing you need in the kitchen for a bit of self catering not that we did much there's loads of good restaurants on your door step

The rooftop pool is a added bonus Spent a good few hours up there .

We will be back next year .

I would definitely recommend martins apartment to friends

Bright, spacious, clean and a great location

  • 5 of 5

Martin's apartment was ideal for our stay in Alvor, we spent 6 nights here and enjoyed every minute of it. The apartment is very spacious, exceptionally clean, bright and comfortable. Loved the little touches like the bottle of wine in the fridge on our arrival. Weather wasn't brilliant so we didn't get an opportunity to use the pool but couldn't fault any aspect of our stay.

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.
