The Algarve / West Algarve region
The Algarve has a temperate climate almost all year round and boasts over 300 days of sunshine a year. Alvor is situated between the towns of Portimao and Lagos and has one of the best beaches in the Algarve. The town itself is a lovely fishing village with an array of wonderful restaurants and bars but is more suited to a family holiday. Those looking for a more lively setting, then the night life of Praia da Rocha is a short Taxi ride away. Other areas of interest include the Monchique mountains, Sagres, Cape St Vincent and a host of Golf Clubs all within a short driving distance. The town is well serviced with supermarkets, banks, ATM machines and an internet cafe.
The Alvor / Alto Golf and Country Club area
Alvor is an old costal fishing village, which is now a popular holiday destination. It is well located facing a natural lagoon opening onto the sea. The Alto Country Club is situated just a 5 minute walk away.. Other attractions close by include Slide & Splash (Waterpark), Golf, Zoomarine, Shopping (Portimo). For golf enthuasists there are a fabulous selection of golf courses in the area which I would be happy to advise on.
The beautiful sandy beach with small coves tucked under the cliffe is only a 10 minute walk away.
Watersports enthusiasts will enjoy the fantastic facilities on offer, whilst sun worshippers can avail of the sunloungers & umbrellas (there are a limited supply available free of charge). The beach bars serve breakfast lunch & dinner on the beach, an ideal setting for watching the sunset & lights twinkling over Lagos.

05 Oct 2012
We travelled to Alvor Golf & Country Club in August 2012 with 2 children aged 4 and 6. We stayed for 2 weeks and had a wonderful holiday. The apartment exceeded our expectations. It was spacious, clean & linen was changed regularly. The pool area was great. We took a number of diving toys & inflatables for the children to play with and they (and us) had a great time. The chlorine levels were checked daily and the pool was always clean. In the evenings it is an easy walk into the main town where there are numerous really nice restaurants. We had some great days out at slide & splash & Zoomarine. All in all we felt safe, had a great time and would recommend this apartment & location as a holiday destination.
