About Margaret White

We have been visiting the Algarve nearly every year since the mid eighties. In the late 90's we visited twice a year. Then decided to buy. For the last 10 years we have spent 6 months of each year on and off in the Algarve and that is why our property is of a very high standard, because we live in it a lot of the time.

Margaret White purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Margaret White chose Alporchinhos

Areias de Porches is such a beautiful complex. It overlooks the sea. A 5 minute stroll down to the two beautiful beaches. There is a lovely restaurant on the beach where the fishermen repair their boats and spend the day in their huts as they always have. This is a cove area with activities in the summer. The other beach is quiet and rugged.

What makes this apartment unique

Space to move in the apartments. Separate bedrooms. Separate fully fitted kitchen. Eat in or out as you please. No meal deadlines to meet. So just relax and enjoy yourselves. FREE UNLIMITED INTERNET NOW AVAILABLE IN BOTH PROPERTIES

Had a wonderful time and is perfect for kids and couples , apartment was exceptionally clean and was in a great location near beach, shops and restaurants nearby. Margaret was always helpful with a wealth of knowledge on the local area with nothing being too much trouble.

The apartment was extremely well furnished with everything you could need and more.Will be back next summer.

Better than advertised! Beautifully clean ,modern and so well kitted out. We wanted for nothing. Didn't even have to wash up as a dishwasher is even there! Lovely pool with children's pool alongside.

Short walk to supermarket selling everything imaginable. Opposite direction leads to a beautiful quiet sandy beach with small café .

The apartment has two adjacent balconies which ensures sunshine throughout the day!

Would recommend this to anyone that wants a "get away from it all sunshine paradise."

excellent! What else is there to say? Everything you could possibly expect from a superior apartment in a spectacular setting ! A small peaceful beach a few hundred yards away, a superb swimming pool with children's pool on site and two beautiful balconies (sun traps)!

The apartment has everything you could possibly need for a truly great holiday.

Shame we had to come home!

Owner's Response: We strive to ensure all our guests have a great time. Margaret meets our guests and as well as showing them around the apartment she is often able to give you a short tour of the area and give you lots of tips to make the best of your holiday depending on your requirements. She is also only a phone call away to give you assistance. We are proud of the beauty of the small complex our apartments are situated in, and how well the gardens and swimming pools are kept. The sea and countryside views are so relaxing. There are plenty of varied restaurants and cafes (pastelarias) in walking distance and as our guest says the main supermarket provides all your needs. We also recommend the small supermarket called Glorias, which is a bit closer and Tina who owns it will deliver your shopping for you if you do not have a car. Margaret can provide direct transfers from the airport and a hire car if you decide you need it. She can also arrange trips for you. The Vila Vita 5 star spar is worth a visit and very reasonable for a relaxing few hours in luxury. We also have a two bed, two bath apartment just by the main pool. We make sure you have everything you need in the apartments. We have many guests who come back time and time again to our apartments. If you prefer a longer term winter holiday we offer a very good deal for stays of at least a month. Currently priced at 22.50 euros per night for the 1 bed and 27 euros per night for the 2 bed. We class November to March inclusive as winter. Our apartments are in such a good position for just strolling to the local beaches, restaurants and supermarkets. But, also in central Algarve so you are close to all the main attractions of the area. Whether it is a trip up to the Monchique mountains or all along the coast in either direction. If our apartments are booked for the times you want we work very closely with other owners via Margaret and it is very rare that we could not accommodate you on this superb complex. There are only 84 apartments with open upper walkways which make this complex so attractive. We look forward to welcoming previous guests back and to seeing lots of new ones.

I stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment

  • 5 of 5

The site is so well looked after, clean and tidy with adult and child pools.The apartment is absolutely brilliant. It has everything you would wish to have around you on holiday. The kitchen is so well "kitted" out. The bedroom is spacious and there is plenty wardrobe space with an extra fitted wardrobe in the hallway also housing a safe to keep your personal items secure. There is a terrace leading off from the bedroon and another one from the Lounge both of which get the sunshine early in the day until late evening. The area is lovely, plenty resturants close by and 2 supermarkets within walking distance. Algarve shopping cntr is a small drive away. The 2 beaches can be reached with a 5min walk and they are lovely. Portimao is about a 15-20 minute drive with a large retail centre. There is another lovely beach approx. 10 minutes away with shops resturants and bars. I had a brilliant holiday and will be going back. (Doreen from Scotland)

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

First i have to say thanks to Margaret! I wanted to rent this apartment, but it was booked, so she arranged other apartment for that week...

The apartment is great. The living room is big, the kitchen has everything needed, the bedroom is big too...

At our arrival she gave us plenty of directions and flyers with information about restaurants, beaches, etc...

Everything went well for the whole week.

Again, thanks for everything!

PS: Margaret, from now on, don't forget to mention the GPS coordinates: 37.101977,-8.389749

This beautifully designed resort is located within a five minute walk to Senhora de Rocha where there are two wonderful beaches with water sports and boat cruises into the spectacular caves along the coast. Beaches such as Benigil and Marhinha, listed as one of the top beaches in the world, are only a short drive as is the historic village of Porches. Ideally situated between Albufeira & Portimao with Algarve Shopping, a big shopping mall, with cinemas, bowling alley,restaurants, and lots of shops only a 10 minute drive. Waterparks within easy reach and Zoomarine, a wonderful place for all ages, with their fantastic dolphins amongst many other things, an 8 minute drive. The Algarve is well known for its golf courses, the resort is in a great position for them, 10 minute drive in any direction and you will find a golf course. We have a discount on 5 courses in the area. There are some very nice restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets and two supermarkets within walking distance.

Golf: The Algarve was voted number one golf destination in the world 2006. So for golfers there is plenty of courses to play, there is a number of excellent golf courses situated within a 5 minute drive, these include; Salgados, The magnificent championship courses of Pestana Vale da Pinta, Gramacho and Silves Golf, and many more 30 minutes away. Group bookings are welcome, if required transfers to and from the courses can be arranged. We have an arrangement to offer a reduction on green fees for selected courses.
