Guestbook comments from the manager

really lovely, spacious, light apartment, spotlessly clean, comfy beds and very well furnished altogether. Lots of thought went into this place, kitchen gadgets and equipment etc , pool towels, toys and parasols, extra bedding, books, films, games, c.d's....honestly, the only thing missing was a hairdryer ! Good pool and well maintained gardens in a quiet location 5 mins from Pingoes supermarket and a 15 minute walk into the village and harbour. Would stay again, excellent value altogether.

Beautiful apartment in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious and well equipped apartment overlooking the pool. The apartment has everything you need to enjoy a comfortable stay. Helen was very accomodating and kindly helped us to arrange airport transfers. This was our first family holiday without a hire car and we felt a bit apprehensive about not having any transport. However, the picturesque town and harbour and beautiful beaches were all within a 15 to 20 minute walk. The beaches of Alvor are stunning and the sandy coves and caves are well worth exploring. We took a catamaran boat trip one afternoon which included kayaking and snorkeling in the bays around the caves. There are lots of restaurants and bars to choose from in the town and also a couple within minutes of the apartment. All in all, a very pleasant holiday . Thank you Helen for such an enjoyable introduction to the Algarve.

Lovely apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean, very spacious and has everything you need. The pool was fab and not very busy, our children loved it. The apartment was a 10 minute walk into Alvor which is a lovely town lots of cobbled streets with bars, restaurants and shops. The beach was a bit further but gorgeous sand dunes and great waves. We've really enjoyed our stay in Alvor and will definitely be returning for a longer stay. Thank you

Great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from ten days in this apartment with our two kids (9&8 years old) and would highly recommend. The apartment is a great size with two proper bedrooms. Apartment stayed pretty cool despite temperatures that were quite high even for Portugal in August. We rarely used the air conditioning. Apartment is well equipped with lots of travel adaptors provided. Wifi, TV etc excellent if you want to stay connected to the world. Kitchen well equipped and again a very good size with plenty of space to eat. Neil and Helen also had a few basics in for us on arrival. Couldn't be closer to the pool which is a great size with good staggered depths - roughly 70cm - 1.80cm, I think. Fairly busy in what must be peak season (August) but never too busy (quiet compared to hotel pools). Having dedicated loungers for each apartment is a good touch.

Neil and Helen there to meet us on arrival and apartment was spotless. A shutter broke on our first day and they had it fixed within 24 hours.

We didn't have a car so convenience important. Big supermarket within 5 minute walk and Alvor 10-15 minutes. Alvor is very nice with lots of places to eat and drink. Relatively small and seemed to be mainly appealing to families. Pretty much everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. Everything from Irish pubs and all day breakfasts to local restaurants specialising in seafood, so should satisfy most tastes! Beaches lovely. Busy but you could always find plenty of space as they go for miles. 15 to 20 minutes walk to plain sandy beach, 45 minutes to beach with cliffs, rocks and coves (but still plenty of golden sand).

A few minor things to look out for. Hot water to bathroom was a little temperamental and oven only has one baking tray (no wire shelves) so not ideal for grilling or things like pizza. Didn't take away from a great holiday though.

All in all a great holiday and the apartment is excellent. We would definitely look to return.
