Great house, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house and exactly as described. Lots of space for everyone...we were a party of nine. Lovely outdoor space with barbecue which we used most evenings. Location could not be better for beach, restaurants and bars. Mario and Dora are excellent hosts and always around if you need them.

We would love to visit Alvor again and stay in this lovely house!!!

Fantastic location for everything

  • 5 of 5

House was much bigger than we thought ideal for our grown up family....everybody had their own space. All amenities within the house were as described and just what we needed. Fantastically located within the village 2 minutes walk to shops, restaurants and daily market. The beach about 5 minutes walk was a daily trip for us.

Mario and Dora couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming.

We need to keep this house a secret!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 10 days in this lovely house and it really is a hidden gem. It is right in the centre of Alvor village within walking distance from the bars and restaurants. We were a group of six adults and the house was perfect for us. The property description is spot on and the plunge pool was great for cooling off whilst singing and drinking G & T's! Mario was really helpful and friendly from the first email enquiry that I submitted and both Dora and Mario are friendly and helpful.

We would definately recommend staying in the house and we will be returning.

On arrival after 9pm in the eve ,mario & dora met us at the front door and were very welcoming with there time to show us all the parts of this massive house it really is a lot bigger than his site suggests , was very clean and all the mod cons of your own home . mario was very helpful with advise in the area and also showed us the best way to get around . the location of the house is perfect as it is only 50 mtrs from the main st of bars , restaurants & shops . but with the added bonus of once you close your front door you could be a million miles from the hustle and bustle of it all , as you cannot here a sound . We would definitely recommend this house to anyone who is lucky enough to get it and Mario and Dora were always available to answer any question , but also never invasive of our space during our entire holiday , the two big bonuses were the pool that has the sun shine on it from about 2 pm and also the outside courtyard with table and chairs to enjoy a quite cup of coffee in the afternoon was so peaceful .

Were meet by a very nice owner and his wife Mario & Dora , even thought it was after 9 at night . gave us a very warm welcome and showed us all around this amazing home ,it was clean and bright and our linen & towels were changed after week 1 . after spending plenty of time showing us every part of this house also brought us around the corner to give us a good sense of were everything was . after giving us our keys left us to absorb just how big this house really is , We cannot speak more highly of them both , the house is only meter,s from all the bar,s & restaurants of alvor village and the beach and estuary are only a couple of minutes walk away ..The house has everything you need and more , even though the house is only meters from all the bars , once you close your front door you could honestly be miles away from all the buzz of the main street as you cannot here a thing , all n all this house is amazing and also are the owner,s and we really want to return to this house the next time we visit Alvor

Uma casa para regressar

  • 5 of 5

A casa que serviu para passar umas inestimáveis férias têm uma belíssima relação preço-qualidade. O proprietário é também ele inestimável.

É tipicamente uma casa para famílias em férias. Suficientemente informal e agradavelmente estruturada com as diversas áreas revelando uma confortável autonomia. A reabilitação desse ponto de vista é absolutamente sensata. A pequena piscina introduz uma amenidade à casa que ganha mais importância que o próprio fim a que estaria destinada. O pátio interior introduz um conforto adicional à cozinha.

A vila é razoavelmente cuidada pecando somente pela incapacidade do turismo (quase) de massas ter o mínimo de respeito pelo ambiente envolvente. A praia que frequentamos, situada numa paisagem protegida do habitual volume sonoro e visual, para um fim de Agosto, é agradavelmente calma e quase exclusiva.

Nota final para a população local (nativos e não nativos) que foi inexcedível na simpatia.

Alvor is a popular destination that combines a perfect beach holiday with local Portuguese life. There are numerous boat trips from the village - go to see the sunset and drink champagne, go to watch the dolphins watching or take a trip along the river. There is a bird sanctuary nearby, great walks, numerous golf courses, including the famous Penina Golf course as well as several beaches - both open white sand beaches and those hidden behind cliffs. There are dozens of restaurants catering for all tastes a short walk. There are sports bars, pubs and a reggae bar that serves the best 'Caipirinha' in the Algarve! There is everything you could possibly want and if you want to get away from it you can. On the other side of the river is the Meia Praia beach which goes to Lagos and passes through wetlands. The Monchique mountains are 30 mins away, the town of Portimão is a 10 minute drive away where there are theatres, cinema and festivals, the new Algarve Race Track is about 15 mins away.
