About Maria Helena
Hello. My name is Maria Helena. I am a bank retired woman 70 years old, married with a bank retired man too. We worked in Lisbon all the time. Had our children there. They have grown up and both are married now. We have 4 grandchildren. We like Lisbon but now we prefer the Algarve to live. No stress of the cities. Good sea to visit and to dive. People that think about holidays not about work. So we live now in Alvor - Algarve - Portugal. In the meanwhile we rent our properties. We are very careful with its quality and we love to hear that our clients, had a great holiday. In our accommodation. We are waiting for you too. Lena and Gil.

Great location close to town and beach
We stayed as a family of five in the top apartment. Firstly Lena who lives below was a lovely hostess very helpful and thoughtful, for example the coffee machine stopped working and within an hour Lena sent up a new one! . The apartment was spacious and comfortable with all we needed for a relaxing 10 days.
Good location but apartment dated
The location was excellent - very close to grocery stores, restaurants, and most everything but the apartment needs to be updated. The apartment seemed dark overall and the amenities seemed to be a mishmash. When we booked, the listing advertised the bathrooms as having tubs whereas there were only showers - no tub. I could not honestly recommend it as I would not stay there again. There are many other apartments to rent in the area with some much newer and more modern.
We announce CASA SÃO PEDRO/apparts. in Home Away and in Owners Direct
Recently we rebuilt all of the bathrooms (they had tubs and now they have generous chowers)
We changed the information in HomeAway and we forgot of changing this information in Owners Direct.
This is the reason why the client is complaining in the review...but all the other clients have been VERY HAPPY
with our new GREAT SHOWERS.
Great 3 bed apartment in an excellent location
The apartment is well equipped and in a great location for Alvor centre, a car is not required. The sun is on the pool from around 10 until 7 during July which allows you to burn the candle at both ends! The lounge balcony has the sun early in the day and the kitchen balcony late afternoon so you can find shade if required. The pool was cleaned several times and our linen changed twice during our 2 week stay.
Our only negative comments would be that the third bedroom doesn't have air conditioning and the gas oven doesn't heat to the temperature that the gas mark should provide,
Lena lives on site and is always willing to help or offer assistance if required.
We hope to return on our next visit to Alvor.
1st Floor apartment
We have stayed in Alvor many times and in this residential area several times.The apartments are ideally situated for shops, bars and restaurants and a pleasant stroll to the beach.
The apartment rooms are spacious and have two balconies with different aspects, one with views out to sea,
I am glad to say that during our visit the neighbours' noisy large dog was absent, perhaps they have moved! Would happily stay here again.
1ST time at this villa.Have been to one of lenas other apartments before so knew what to expect.It is as described located in a very nice area just behind the old hotel/apartments on the way towards pingo leaving alvor.It has 3 very spacious bedrooms[none ensuite] but 2 separate bathrooms/kitchen come dining room and also lounge/large balconey\s.One thing i would say is that both bathrooms look like they are in the process of refurb so should be nice when finished.It would suit large family or alright for sharing.Be careful of large dog nextdoor although in behind fence can be quite fearsome at night time when entering villa[dont let that put you off].So less than 5 mins to town/same to pingo supermarket and abt 15/20 mins to beach.
Boa localização, perto do centro.
Regressámos das férias na Casa de S. Pedro esta semana, somos 6 adultos e 1 criança, e o feedback é relativamente positivo. A D. Helena é de uma atenção e cuidado extremo e incansável para que tudo esteja bem, obrigada por isso!
Em relação a casa (1º andar Casa S.Pedro), a localização é excelente, perto do centro mas uma zona calma ao mesmo tempo, Ar condicionado nos quartos e sala, perfeito! As casa de banho estão renovadas.
Os aspectos a melhorar é a questão da limpeza (cozinha, principalmente). Em relação a TV, tínhamos 4 canais disponíveis e nenhum em português. Resolvemos com um portatil. Seria agradável ter esta comodidade disponível pois quando investimos numa casa de férias, o objectivo é sentirmo-nos em casa.
Agradeço ainda a disponibilidade da D. Helena por nos ter enviado por correio os souvenir que ficaram esquecidos.

3 minutes by car or 10 minutes walking is enough for you to arrive in some of the best beaches in the Algarve ( Alvôr beach ; 3 Irmãos Beach ).
Casa São Pedro is located just 2 minutes walking to the center of the village of Alvôr , where you find everything you need ( shops, restaurants, banks, supermakets ; bars ; etc).
Casa São Pedro stands on a peaceful residential avenue within an easy 300 metre stroll of the bustling centre of Alvor village. Popular restaurants and lively family bars line the narrow streets mingling with small shops and pavement cafés amidst traces of Alvor’s historic past in the form of the 16th century church. Beside the quaint little harbour, open air restaurants look onto the river estuary, and the magnificent Alvor beach is a little over 1km from these superb Algarve holiday apartments. The lively resort of Praia da Rocha is 5 km away and the port town of Portimão and its colourful marina 7 km.
