About Paul Miller

I am a retired Film and TV Editor. I have invested in holiday properties in both France and Portugal to provide me with a retirement income.

Paul Miller purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Paul Miller chose Alvor

My family has been coming to Portugal since the 1960s. Having travelled in many parts of the world I still consider the beaches in the Algarve second to none. The food is excellent and the Portuguese are amongst the friendliest people to be found anywhere. The Alto Club is a special place in a unique setting. After a failed previous management, the Club has been purchased by the freehold owners of its villas and apartments is currently being restored to its previous glory.

What makes this apartment unique

The Alto Club is within walking distance of the Praia de Tres Irmâos and the centre of Alvor.

cheeky week

  • 4 of 5

Overall it is probably the best equipped self catering property we have stayed in. 3 different ways to make coffee, and that does not include instant!

The property is very clean. Everything is close by, bars and restaurants within an easy walk. The beach another easy walk, immaculately clean, and not busy.

The only downside is that we needed more to do, there are only so many times you can walk around a small shopping area before boredom sets in. We booked the catamaran, half day, excellent. The walking on the boardwalk and beach is very good. That is about it. Great place to go if you want to wind down and relax.

Owner's Response: Hi Les, thank you for your review. I have to say that I have been coming to Alvor and the Algarve for over 30 years and personally I am never bored with the beautiful beaches, air and sunsets. However for guests of a more restless spirit, do not hesitate to email me in advance and I will be more than happy to provide a list of suggestions of wonderful places to visit along this beautiful coast. Actually I would say that a week is definitely not enough. Best wishes, Paul

A GREAT HOLIDAY IN A LUXURY APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5

This apartment 34F is in the Alto Golf and Country Club in Alvor Portugal.

This superb apartment in an ideal location is close to shops and beaches in Alvor.

The apartment is very clean and tastefully decorated and furnished to a very high standard by the owners and is in the same condition as it was when we stayed here two years ago.

The Alto Golf and Country Club has many facilities including an outdoor and indoor pool, restaurant, snack bar and tennis courts.

When you stay in this luxury apartment you are entitled to use one umbrella and two sun beds on the beach at Alvor near to the Restinga Restaurant. These sunbeds are free of charge but you have to go early as there are only a limited number.

The apartment itself has very efficient air-conditioning in the lounge/dining room and both bedrooms. We did not use the air-conditioning much as the apartment stays quite cool during the day when the electric blinds are lowered. It is recommended to keep the blinds down during the day not only because it keeps the apartment cool but also gives it that bit of extra security.

The kitchen is fully fitted with fridge/freezer, induction hob, electric oven, washing machine, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, electronic safe etc. There is also satellite TV, Wi Fi and a very nice patio area with six chairs and a table along with sun loungers as well. It is very pleasant to sit on the patio in the morning to have breakfast. In the afternoon the sun shines directly on the patio so it is ideal for sun bathing although somewhat too hot to sit outside to have a meal until the sun has set. Adjoining the patio is a very pleasant garden which is well looked after by the staff of the Alto club.

The apartment has its own dedicated parking area in the garage beneath the apartment. I think it essential to rent a car at the airport when staying in the Alto club as it is around 67 kms from Faro Airport.

The receptionist in the Alto Club was very helpful on our arrival and gave us a lot of useful information regarding the club and facilities.

There is also a very comprehensive instruction manual with photos in the apartment on how to use all the appliances.

We enjoyed a superb holiday in this luxury apartment and would fully recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday in Alvor. Many thanks to Paul Miller

This is a ground floor apartment in a golf and country club

Excellent Apartment, tastefully furnished and very well equipped, thoroughly deserving 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in such a lovely apartment and would be very happy to come back again. We have stayed at the Alto Club several times and this apartment is among the best we have rented. It's not just the finishing touches but also the attention to practical needs. We would highly recommend both the apartment and the village of Alvor which is a big holiday favourite of ours.

Superb well equiped apartment on a quiet complex in Alvor.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from an eleven night stay in this superb well equipped apartment.

The recent refurbishment has been done to a very high standard and has everything that you are likely to need during your stay.

The apartment has a large terrace with ample seating and sun loungers overlooking the well cared for gardens.

The electric shutters give extra security as well as keeping the apartment cool during the day.

Alvor is one of our favourite places to visit, a very traditional fishing village with a variety of restaurants and a fantastic beach.

This apartment is one of the best we have stayed at in Alvor and we look forward to returning again next year.

Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely apartment.

Coast/Beach:

Walking distance to village of Alvor and nearby superb sandy beaches.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Faro which is served by many low cost Airlines including Ryanair and Easy Jet. Alvor is about 60 kms from Faro and the journey can be completed on a high quality motorway in 45/50 minutes. Airport transfers can be arranged for about €60 for up to 4 persons. Car hire is not necessary at Alto.

Distances:

Local amenities and shops are within walking distance of the Apartment.

Further Details:

Attractions: slide and splash, near lagoa, is about a 20 minute drive from the apartment, and zoomarine with dolphins and amusements, near guia, about a 35 minute drive are wonderful family entertainment. Out and about: lagos is a beautiful town, and is about twenty minutes drive away. There is a good selection of shops, as well as lots of bars and restaurants. The yacht marina is an attractive recent addition to the town. Portimao is more of a commercial centre than a tourist town, but has recently smartened up its waterside areas and is well worth a visit. If anything the shops here are better and more varied than in lagos. Look out for the pedestrianised streets as this is where most of the good shops are. Praia da Rocha has one of the best beaches on the algarve, but has been a little bit over developed some years ago. However, if you are looking for some lively night life, this is the place to come. It is a cheap taxi ride from the apartment at alto. Between Praia da Rocha and Portimao is a marina, which is surrounded by recently built bars and restaurants. Monchique is a pretty market town about 1,500 above sea level and is well known for its traditional handicrafts. Monichique’s backdrop is the slope of the sierra de monichique which in spring and summer has an abundance of colour. Cape st vincent is the most westerly point in europe, and reputedly has the most powerful lighthouse in europe. This bit of coastline is on a par with the cliffs of moher for magnificent, rugged coastal scenery. Take a coat, when the wind blows, there is nothing but ocean between you and america! Sagres is the last town on the road west towards cape st vincent. There are some nice beaches here, but the main attraction is the fortress of henry the navigator, parts of which date back to the 15th century.
