The pool is set in well kept extensive lawns with beautiful trees and shrubs.Alvor is an easy taxi ride for under €5 and if you feel like walking down the hill its a lovely walk. Alvor is full of life in the summer season and has got a great array of restaurants and bars. There are 2 very good restaurants across the road from the Villa Marachique complex.
Just a note to say thank you, we had a wonderful holiday. The apartment was perfect along with the pool area, wonderful food wine etc.

The Algarve region
The Algarve enjoys a mild climate most of the year. The gentle sea breeze stops it getting too hot in summer. A short journey inland from Alvor brings you to a more traditional Algarve with historic Silves, and the delightful Monchique an excellent retreat from the heat in the summer. Alvor is an all year round destination especially for golfing.
Alvor offers a choice of wonderful beaches and a harbour estuary with protected wild life area,boat trips, canoe hire, and dolphin spotting.For the younger members of the family there are many attractions including Zoo Marine, Aqualand and Slide and Splash etc.
There is also some great shopping in nearby Portimao and the Algarve Shopping Centre in Guia. The landscape is amazingly diverse from wild West Coast (towering cliffs and huge ocean breakers, Surfers Paradise!)through the western central algarve with gentler beaches and estuaries with marinas Lagos and Portimao, and the traditional holiday destinations of Praia de Rocha, Villa Moura etc.
Alvor is a classic old fishing village. Narrow cobbled streets lead down to a fabulous harbour and amazing beaches. The streets are full of shops restaurants cafes and bars and with very child friendly service, there is something for all ages in Alvor and the easy pace of life makes it a perfect place for a relaxing holiday.
There are 2 excellent restaurants across the road from Villa Marachique.
The bus service is excellent and a bus stop just outside the complex makes it easy to get to Portimao or down to village if you dont feel like the walk. There is an excellent taxi service and will arrive within minutes of booking and €5 will take you almost anywhere within the Alvor Portimao Area.

"Villa Marachique great apartment."
Had a great holiday at Villa Marachique. The apartment was spotless and had ever thing you may need on holiday also great pool area.
The apartment is about 20 mins walk from Alvor and if you don't feel like walkng you can ring a taxi which cost around € 3.90. Alvor is a nice town with lots of great places to eat.
Myself and family would holiday again in Alvor and stay at these apartments. Overall a great holiday great weather, great apartment, great pool, great town.

Had a wonderful stay here in August 2011. The apartment is spotless, well furnished and equipped for a holiday stay. Has everything and more than you need, additional towels and bed linen were a blessing as was the dishwasher!! It was really hot in August 35+ most days so Air Con was a great plus in the evenings before going to bed!! TV and DVD are a nice distraction but as we spent most of the time by the pool or the beach these were not used much. The balcony area is a good size perfect for lazing in the evening sunshine with a bottle of vino verde. The apartment complex itself is very secure, with a nice mix of holiday makers from different regions and possibly locals too. The pool area is fantastic and the size of the pool has to be seen to be believed. The pool bar offers a variety of drinks and snacks that are very reasonably priced. I have been to Alvor on many an occassion and would not hesitate to come back to this apartment again.
Thank you Michael for your lovely review, we are so delighted that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Vila Marachique and that you will have many more happy holidays.
