About Kevin Brennan

We are Lynn and Kevin Brennan. We live outside of Boston in the USA. We saw this property when it was being built while on a trip to Portugal visiting friends from Ireland. We liked the area right away. It is a small town with most everything you need within walking distance. There are so many sights to see within 30 minutes of our condo - medieval castles, Roman ruins and even prehistoric sights. A short drive to Tavira (20 minutes) which has its origins back in Roman times, and you can go to the movies, shop in the new Mall, walk in the old part of the city and dine in casual and up-scale restaurants.

Drive West and explore the Algarve. Go all the way to Sagres and stand in the furthest east location in continental Europe with breathtaking views of the rocky shore. Stop in Lagos on the way back to walk in the old walled city, take a boat tour to see the limestone formations on the coast and dine in one of the many great little restaurants. Or, from our condo, head East to Sevilla - only 90 minutes away - see the Cathedral and the Alcazar. Dine on tapas and take in a Flamenco show.

Why Kevin Brennan chose Altura

Many parts of the Algarve are built up with high rise buildings covering the horizon. Altura is still a small village with a quaint feel and it is right on the coast. The people are welcoming and friendly. The location is great to access all of the Algarve, over to Sevilla and down to Jerez (the birthplace of sherry).

What makes this condo unique

Sitting on the deck looking at the ocean with your morning coffee/tea and enjoying conversation and you truly appreciate your vacation. Enjoy drinks and dinner on the deck (many restaurants have take out if you do not want to cook) and relax.

We have carefully selected the items in this condo. Many we carried over from the USA in multiple trips. We stay in this unit ourselves a couple times per year. We wish for our guests to treat our home with care so it remains nice for their return visits, our visits and the visits of other guests. Many thanks and we truly hope you enjoy this wonderful place.
