The Algarve has a temperate climate almost all year round, and has about 300 days of beautiful sunshine a year. The tourist season extends from March to October and it only really starts to slow down in wintertime.
The Algarve boasts some of the best beaches which are unspoilt. Spread along the shores of the Bay of Lagos, Alvor encompasses an old fishing village, the Praia do Alvor beach and the Ria do Alvor river estuary.
When it comes to beach holidays, Alvor is hard to beat. Praia do Alvor boasts kilometres of golden sand, where you will find a private spot to place your towel even at the height of the summer.

Alvor is a small fishing village located 5 kms west of Portimao & only 45 mins from Faro airport. The beautiful 4 1/2 mile stretch of sandy beach is clean and has good facilities for sunbathing and relaxation. There are several excellent beach-side restaurants most offering superb fish, meat and salad dishes, along with ice creams and drinks.
The village of Alvor just 5 minutes stroll from the apartment has traditional buildings, narrow cobbled streets and a picturesque harbour for evening strolls or stopping for a cool drink. There are numerous fantastic restaurants and bars, some with live music entertainment and most child friendly. There are open air sea - food restaurants, steak houses, Chinese, Mexican and many more.
