Brilliant apartment in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Ursulas apartment. We have stayed in Alvor several times before but this was the first time at Vila da Praia and we thoroughly enjoyed. The apartment was lovely and spacious and contained everything that we needed for our 10 day stay. Our communications with Ursula before booking our trip were great and we were met with her agent in the resort at the agreed time etc. We will definitely be back in the future.

Fantastic Apartment in a Brilliant Location !

  • 5 of 5

Lovely well equipped apartment. This was our sixth stay at Vila da Pria and this was easily the best one we have stayed at. Towels are changed twice a week unlike other places and the kitchen utensils are good quality so it is possible to self cater.

We will be returning next year ...

Super Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely modern apartment in a quiet but convenient location..5 minutes to town centre 5 minutes to the beach. Nice view of the pool from the balcony which catches the sun from am to pm. The cleaning service was first class, the linen and towels were excellent and also the bonus of beach towels. This was our first visit to Alvor..what a suprise the beaches are fantastic the restaurants have food to die for and the prices are so reasonable. Looking forward to a return visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this very positive comment. Indeed, the location of the apartment is second to none. This was one reason why we decided to buy it. After buying the apartment we undertook efforts to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We are very pleased to hear that these efforts have been recognised. And the view from the balcony - yes this is something of which even we dream, especially on grey and cold November days.... It will be a pleasure for us to welcome you again.

The nearest airport is Faro. From there you can either take a taxi, a separately booked transfer or rent a car directly further from the airport. The transfer time Faro Alvor is approximately one hour. Meanwhile, there are some professional transfer providers that can be booked directly through the Internet. Transfer prices are dependent on the size of the vehicle, number of people, complete or partial transfer. Basically, it can be said that expected for 1-2 people group transfers, since they must be paid per person. More than 2 people go cheaper with a private transfer, since a package price for the vehicle is required. The price for a single trip Faro-Alvor, depending on the provider between EUR 56 - 85th

Alvor is located on the so-called rock Algarve, where cliffs alternate with bizarre rock formations and sandy beaches, which makes the landscape attractive and varied. The place was originally a small fishing village, whose character and charm is still well preserved. Its location on a natural harbor and along a mile-long, sandy and gently sloping beach Alvor make an ideal holiday destination not only for families with children, but also for holidaymakers who like to take long beach or cliff walks. The beach is farmed during the season and also in the high season, plenty of space.

The original location of Alvor is predominantly rural character, ie low and small houses (former fishermen's houses), but these were mostly converted into shops and cottages. In order not to destroy the charm of the place, the building height in Alvor is limited between beach and town center to a maximum of three floors, which was strictly enforced in buildings from the 80s. However, there are a few eyesores from previous years who enjoy grandfathering.

Vacations in Alvor are characterized by peace, relaxation and space. From spring to autumn, life is predominantly from the day on the beach. Lively nightlife you could not find, but does not mean that there is no nightlife. The recreational opportunities in Alvor are composed mostly maritime. In the vicinity there are several attractions such. B. ZooMarine in Albufeira, a water park or the zoo in Lagos etc.

Golfers will find in the Algarve beautiful golf courses, some of which are near Alvor. Since the Algarve is overall not very big and Alvor something left from its center, also more distant places are still easily accessible.

On the beach of Alvor there during the season, boat hire and kite surfing. Further highly suitable for the Algarve activities include hiking, diving, sailing, cycling and at some beaches and surfing.
