Overview

About the property

Picturesque Alvor, large landscaped swimming pool, sandy beaches and creeks

Villa Marachique is a beautiful development with apartment buildings surrounding a lovely landscaped swimming pool. The whole area is enclosed and grassed slopes lead down to the central lagoon style and separate toddlers’ pool with a playground. There is a snack bar by the pool (high season only), an outdoor cloakroom, a great shallow end with beach effect, and the whole area is lovely for families with children.

The magnificent Algarve sunlight illuminate beautiful views from the apartment towards the sea at Alvor and Lagos bay, especially on mornings. The nearby shore offers a large choice of beautiful long sandy beaches and creeks surrounded by golden cliffs, the nearest being within 1.5 km walk.

With more than 3000 sunshine hours yearly, the Algarve generally invite vacationers to laziness on the beach or around the pool, but the area is also excellent with leisure for all: the area is rich of its many activity resources as can be found on the ‘turismo’ site visitalgarve.pt

The excellent Portuguese food is available from about 6 local restaurants and a few groceries within a 5 minute stroll, but the hire of a car open the choice to many more and is recommended when staying at this property. Vila Marachique is 2 km far from the centre of the picturesque but livened up old village of Alvor and of the night-life vibrating centre of Praia-da-Rocha.

ACCOMODATION FOR 5

This is a modern 2 bedroom recently built apartment, with reversible air conditioning, nicely furnished and decorated in a vacation-to-the-sea spirit.

The apartment has a spacious entrance hall (a locked cupboard houses the owners’ personal effects). Directly ahead is the bedroom area with a large double bedroom, fitted wardrobe and en-suite full bathroom. The second bedroom is a triple with 3 full sized single beds (cot available), and there is another full bathroom. To the right of the hall, an archway leads to the spacious sitting/dining room with comfortable seating, dining table and a connected HD television with DVD player.

Patio doors from the sitting room lead out to an external dining terrace with table and chairs and a great view. The very smart fitted kitchen is separated from the main living area by a breakfast bar, and is equipped to a high standard; fridge with freezer compartment, gas and electric oven, dishwasher, microwave oven, plus all the usual equipment. From there, sliding doors lead to an external utility area with a washing machine, additional fridge and drying terrace.

SERVICES

The apartment is connected to mains water, gas, electricity, NOS cable TV with many channels in various languages (including English) and true broadband Internet access with WIFI. There is a cleaning service each week or on changeover day. There is a local bus service into Alvor or Portimao, but a taxi might be cheaper especially if there are 4 of you. For car renters, there is parking space available outside the block.

The place you want to keep going back to!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in apt 304 block 6. It was spacious with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a fab balcony with pool and sea views. The apartment had everything and more. Well furnished and had all the white goods. Lovely spot and about 20 mins walk into Alvor Centre. A taxi back was 4 Euros. Would recommend to anyone.

Apartment and complex excelent

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is lovely, as is the pool and grounds. The downside, it's a long hot walk to the beach and also into the main town. Taxis to town approx €5

Owner's Response: Thank you Mark for your review. I am happy that you liked the apartment and complex. It is true that the walking path to the magnificent Tres Irmaos beach and to the centre of Alvor is 1,8 km long, according to google maps. This is generally not a problem for most of our guests that have a rental car. I often walk to it myself with a good cap and sunglasses, as a small exercise: it takes 15 minutes down to the beach and a little more back up to the apartment. If the sun is an issue, there is a very efficient bus network with a bus stop just at the foot of the apartment (www.vaivem.pt 1,5~0,8 €/person). I shall make sure that there will be a time table included in the booklet of the apartment. It will be there for your next stay, if we have the pleasure of receiving you again. Gerard

Excellent Apartment! Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

Just home from this amazing resort. VM-304 was like a home away from home, there were 6 of us who stayed here at this apartment and there was loads of room to have your own space. The views from the balcony where amazing especially in the evening. This apartment was very clean and had everything you need and more! The AC was top class which kept all the rooms in the apartment cool. The pool was one of the best outdoor pools I've ever seen and the kids pool was ideal for my 4 year old daughter as it wasn't over crowded and it was just the right depth for her.! It is a 15-20 minute walk into Alvor village but we didn't mind as the walk was lovely in the evening. I would highly recommend this apartment to all families with kids young and old.... as the WiFi is great bonus!!

Thank you Gerard for everything! and we will defiantly be back next year!! :)

Easter holiday in Marachique

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Marachique and had a great stay during Easter! We got a fantastic weather beginning of April (27 degrees during the day) and really loved to walk to the postcard Alvor beach, just a click away from the lovely apartment and its huge swimming pool. With loads of restaurants and bars at walking distance from the flat, we also enjoyed having Portuguese food every evening.

The apartment itself is big, clean and elegantly furnished.

Grandparents, parents and kids really loved the site and will definitely go back to have more very affordable fresh orange juice at the swimming pool bar!

Fabulous resort and apartment was top notch.

  • 4 of 5

Family of 4, loved our stay here. Have stayed at the complex on a number of occasions but this was the first time at VM-304. Everything about the apartment was perfect. Pool and sea views a bonus and ofcource with 2 teenage kids the far internet was a big plus. Will hope to return in 2016 again.

Actual date stayed was 1 Aug 14 to 14 Aug 14
