Peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visit portugal 3 times a year and this was our first visit to this apartment. We had a great time as the apartment is fully equipped and in a great location. We both have hetic lifestyles at home so it was lovely to have the peace and quiet at this apartment. We hire a car and travel around the Algarve so again great base. The apartment was clean and tidy with everything you may need, beautiful gardens and pool, car park and peaceful surroundings but 5 minutes from alvor and it's shops,restaurants and bars. I would highly recommend this apartment for couples and families as it's equipped for everyone.

Really lovely apartment very well equipped with everything you need. Location was great. Only downside was no AC in bedroom which was a bit disappointing as weather was very hot at night otherwise would definitely recommend staying here.

Avery pleasant apartment

  • 4 of 5

On our arrival the apartment was very clean. It is well equipped and comfortable. It's location within the complex makes access to the fantastic pool area very easy. There is no shortage of sun loungers around the pool. Likewise there is also plenty of shaded areas around the well kept lawn.

All in all a very pleasant apartment in a nice complex.

Great apartment, complex and town

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Vila Marachique.

The apartment was newly redecorated and had all extras you would need in an apartment.

Well kitted out for families with young children with a great selection of toys and DVD's.

Large clean, safe swimming pools, great atmosphere and service at the pool bar and a short stroll into town. Was sorry to leave and can't wait to go back again

Looking forward to returning.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with our 2 children visited Vila Marachique in July 2010. We had been to Vila Marachique before with friends but this was our first family holiday there. We were not disappointed. The appartment has all the mod cons required and enough space for 4 of us. It is well appointed and maintained and very convenient to the pool area. We arrived very late (midnight) but settled in immediatley feeling at home right away. There were some videos and books which added a welcome feel and ensured our boys were entertained. A file, put together by the owner, gives information about everything you will need in the area and proved to be very useful - another nice personal touch.

The pool is superb with lots of palm trees which can serve as shade if required and beautiful gardens with sweeping lawns. There is a restaurant serving snacks and drinks and a kiddies play area. It was difficult to tear the children away to go to the beach which is fabulous, one of the best I have ever seen.

Our balcony was great for relaxing and having a pre-dinner drink before heading out to the village. Taxis into the village are about 5 Euro and are always available with pleasant friendly drivers

Alvor is a beautiful old fishing town with so many restaurants you will be spoilt for choice and each one better than the next. We have still not sampled all of them and look forward to returning to do so.
