A perfect location with a stunning view

  • 5 of 5

This house is just a dream away from home. Its location is perfect, shops, restaurants outside your door. The view of the marina and Atlantic ocean is stunning. The house itself has every modern appliances, the wifi system is available all over the house. We used to look forward every night sitting on the balcony having our bottle of wine watching the local fishing boats returning at night with their catch. We look forward to returning next year.

The property was just perfect with the best views of Alvor. Couldn't fault the way the property was kitted out and felt so homely even with a very clean and modern interior.

It was great to be in the heart of the town but set in a quiet road away from the action for a peaceful nights sleep with the distant sound of the sea.

Belle maison de village face à la mer

  • 5 of 5

La maison se trouve dans le vieil Alvor avec une vue sur le port de pêche et de plaisance et la mer, c'est magnifique ! la maison est refaite à neuf, tout est propre et est très jolie avec un sol en marbre très agréable lorsqu'il fait chaud. C'est idéal pour un couple et rien ne manque, wifi , télévision (inutile en vacances), .... Tous les commerces et restaurants sont à côté et inutile de se servir de la voiture. L'accès à la plage se fait par des sentiers recouvert de bois pour ne pas abîmer les dunes. L’accueil d' Helen est très sympathique et nous avons eu tous les renseignements concernant la maison et la ville d'Alvor. Merci. Je recommande vivement cette maison si vous cherchez un endroit typique de l'Algarve et non un lotissement pour touriste !

Traumhafter Ausblick/Terrasse, moderne Ausstattung

  • 5 of 5

Sehr ansprechend renoviertes Häuschen, zentral und trotzdem aber sehr ruhig gelegen. Parkplatz haben wir immer direkt vor der Tür bekommen. Sonnenterrasse im 2. Stock den ganzen Tag über, bis zum traumhaften Sonnenuntergang über Lagos. Diese liegt sogar windgeschuetzt durch die beiden kleinen Mauern. Sie hat einen freien Blick und ist nicht einsehbar.

Das Häuschen ist modern und hochwertig renoviert. Es ist alles top ausgestattet und extrem sauber und gepflegt. Die Geschirrspülmaschine und Waschmaschine sind super und der riesige Fernseher auch! Es gibt im ganzen Haus sogar elektrische Jalousien und im 1. und 2. Stock elektrische Markisen. Der breite und sehr saubere Strand ist in 5-10Min. zu Fuss über toll angelegten Holzstege bis hin zu den Dünen zu erreichen. Ein Sonnenschirm für den Strand ist auch vorhanden. Direkt um die Ecke ist ein kleiner Supermarkt und wenn man 5 Min. läuft ein grosser Supermarkt. Lokale liegen auch direkt 2 Strassen weiter. Im Haus gibt es ein 2.WC im Erdgeschoss, das ist angenehm, da das Bad nur durch folierte Glaswände zum Schlafzimmer abgetrennt ist.

Die Kommunikation war unkompliziert und sehr freundlich und angenehm. Es gibt ein sehr schnelle Internetverbindung nur für das Haus.

Preis/ Leistungsverhältnis ist top. Ein perfektes Domizil für Paare, um zu entspannen. Wir sind sehr erfahren was Ferienwohnungen angeht und würden sagen, dass ist das beste was wir je bewohnt haben !! Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und unseren Urlaub deswegen sogar etwas verlängert.

Viele Grüße und Danke noch einmal, Sabine und Marc

Location! Location! Location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this beautifully furnished house. The beautiful white marble floors were used throughout the home and it had clearly been recently renovated with great attention to detail. The kitchen was well furnished with all new appliances and the master bedroom and bath was large and comfortable. On the top floor was a balcony with a fantastic view of the ocean and we enjoyed sitting in the evenings with a bottle of wine relaxing from the day. But I wouldn't be doing this place justice if I didn't talk about the location. We could walk from our front door directly down to the beach (which was stunning). There was a small supermarket only 3 minutes walking from the house and numerous cafes and restaurants within a couple of minutes walking. I would recommend this place to anyone and we will undoubtedly be staying here again.
