This is the first year the apartment has been available to rent.

Why Chris Bishop chose Alvor

The Property location because first its so central with the beach, round from the harbour a few minutes walk takes you anywhere in the village. it is perfect walking distance to anywhere in minutes. The apartment with its large living area two bedrooms, and the large balcony is lovely. The fabulous 2 pools, the grounds that are very well kept, There are no down points with property that we could find as a family.

What makes this apartment unique

location, The Pool the security of the complex the grounds, The freedom the kids have. I love the fact that the kids can run around the complex all day and the fact that you feel secure that its a safe happy environment for them. The fact that the apartment is so spacious that it so handy to cook a family dinner and eat inside or out.

Very nice apartment in an good location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very nice and spacious. Had every thing we needed. Overlooking the big pool. The location was quiet but only a short walk to the town center and beach. We had an excellent stay and would definitely come back.

We have always stayed in VDP but required a larger apartment as our two boys were getting older. We cannot recommend this apartment highly enough - brilliant location (overlooking the pool), brilliant facilities in the apartment and spotlessly clean. The 2 bathrooms (1 with bath and shower and one with an en suite shower) is an added bonus for families. We are already booked in for July this year and are looking into booking again for 2018. This will hopefully end up being a yearly booking for us as we love Alvor and the apartment so much.

Fabulous Spacious Apartment in Perfect Position

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to both Portugal and Alvor and we weren't disappointed.

We had been looking to book an apartment for a few weeks when we saw this apartment become available - Chris was very quick to come back to us and help throughout the booking process.

We arrived at 11pm and were met at the complex gates and given the keys and a tour of the apartment.

The apartment is lovely - very spacious, very clean and modern and is equipped with everything you need. It is in a prime position overlooking the pool and has a large balcony.

Although we visited in early August, there were always sun beds available any time of the day round the pool and the complex never felt busy. It is well maintained, very clean and safe, especially if you have small children as you need keys to gain access.

The apartment is in the perfect position - just 5 minutes walk to either the beach or the town, with some bars/restaurants just a minute away, with the nearest supermarket a 2 minute walk.

We have a fabulous holiday in Alvor and would recommend this apartment to anyone - we will definitely be booking again for next year.
