Hi Joan,

Thank you for a wonderful relaxing stay at your beautiful property. I brought my parents there for a week recently and I have to say that it was fabulous. The apartment was so spacious and comfortable. You provided us with the all the amenities one would need and I would recommend it highly. The complex is beautiful, so clean and the pool is lovely and spacious. It was lovely and peaceful there, so central with only a few minutes walk to beach or town which was perfect for my parents. Thank you again Joan for a wonderful holiday and I hope to return again soon.

Excellent Family Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay in the apartment. The owner was great with any query we had (Thank you Joan) and we didn't want to come home.

Alvor is perfect for families & the complex was secure as its gated giving peace of mind when the children were playing.

Many people we spoke to have returned many times to the complex & I can see why.

The Gem in Alvor

  • 5 of 5

Having been in Alvor many times over the years, this was undoubtedly the most relaxing and enjoyable from many points.The description of the property is accurate but it does not do it justice.

From the minute we booked our family holiday we had such communication, assistance, reminders re-travel arrangements, beach towels, local travel eg taxis ,who was going to meet us, keys etc that no question was left unanswered.

The apartment is a gem 5 min walk from Alvor village. Spacious spotless with all mod con, on the ground floor this makes it access easy for children and shopping.A gated complex which gives peace of mind and reduce through traffic .It has AC which we only needed on 2 nights but a god send.

I would highly recommend this property to all ages.KC

Most enjoyable holiday, beautiful apartment and resort

  • 5 of 5

Dear Joan

Many thanks for the use of your beautiful and well equipped apartment in Alvor, we found nothing wanting and had a wonderful week. So peaceful and everything in walking distance. The boardwalk all along the sea front is fantastic for those with mobility issues. During the week we covered every inch of this walkway going in all different directions.

We are hoping to return to the Algarve again next year.

Best regards to you and your family for the future and again many thanks for all your help.

A wonderful home from home apartment in the sun!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a fantastic week in your apartment. It had everything we needed even down to the much needed parasol to take to the beach. Enjoyed being on the ground floor, being able to just step out into the garden. This was especially useful for the children when we were using the pool. The complex is lovely. Beautiful gardens and a great pool with sun loungers always available.

The beach just a short distance away is excellent and we loved the short stroll into town in the evenings to enjoy the many restaurants, bars and shops. We would definitely consider returning to Alvor in the future and your beautiful apartment.

Thank you Joan for answering all my questions before we went including your recommendation for airport transfers which was so simple to book and efficient when we arrived at Faro. We all had a brilliant and relaxing holiday with wonderful memories.
