Perfect house in great location for holiday in Alvor

  • 5 of 5

The one bedroom house is perfect, keeps you fit going up and down the stairs as we spent most of our time on the 3rd floor which is where the terrace is with amazing views and a lovely breeze in the hot weather. The kitchen is on the ground floor, it would be useful to have a fridge on the top floor to keep the wine and beers chilled! Bring a wine cooler with you!

We were met by Helen on arrival who was lovely. We have been to Alvor before so know the area well and loved being in the centre of the village. The only downside for us was the noise of local dogs barking during the night, not much the owners can do about this!

We would certainly recommend and would stay here again if we return.

Owner's Response: Dear guests, many thanks for your kind words. Helen and Neil do a great job as property managers, we think so too. What a good idea to put a small fridge on the top floor. We will do this! We hope to be able to welcome you again. Kind regards Caro (owner)

"It does exactly what it says on the tin"

  • 4 of 5

No need to go into detail on this lovely, recently renovated little house. The description is "spot-on". So, if you're a couple who like to holiday in a traditional setting alongside the locals this must be be on your short list.

It's reassuring to know that you have very professional and competent property managers living nearby if any issue or emergency should arise. (Thankfully we did not have any reason to contact to contact Helen/Neil after they met us at the apt.)

Well done to all.

We would definitely recommend this house to our friends.

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.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

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.
