The Algarve region
The Algarve enjoys a mild climate most of the year. The gentle sea breeze stops it getting too humid in summer and in winter it is mild and sunny most of the time. There are many days in winter when it is warm enough to play golf or partake in other sports with just t-shirt and shorts on. A short journey inland from Alvor brings you to a more traditional Algarve with historic Silves and the Sierra beyond with the delightful Monchique- an excellent retreat in the heat of high summer! Alvor is an all year round destination for Golf enthusiasts. Alvor offers a choice of beaches and a harbour and estuary with a protected wildlife area, boat trips, canoe hire and dolphin spotting. Livelier night life is available at Praia da Rocha for the more energetic and young at heart . For the younger members of the family there are many attractions including Zoo Marine, Aqualand,Slide and Splash ect. There is also some great shopping in nearby Portaimo and the Algarve shopping centre in guia. The landscape is amazingly diverse from the wild west coast (towering cliffs and huge ocean breakers-surfer's paradise!) through the western central Algarve with gentler beaches and estuaries with marinas (lagos, Portimao) and the traditional holiday destinations of Praia da Rocha, Vilamoura,ect.
Alvor is a classic old fishing village. Narrow cobbled streets lead down to a huge beautiful beach and harbour.
The streets are full of shops restaurants, cafes and bars with very child friendly service and stay open late you will have plenty of everything for the family to enjoy. Alvor beach caters for all water sports and has numerous beach side restaurants. There is a daily market for food, and a bustling gypsy street market every 2nd Tuesday, There is also a skydiving centre nearby complete with cafe to watch. There are boat trips also from Alvor harbour, a wide range of different trips from fishing to dolphin watching,
Vila Marachique is NEXT TO ALTO GOLF, CLOSE TO PENINA GOLF and within easy drive of many other golf courses. Good deals for golf packages are easily found on the Internet. There are 2 very good restaurants a few mins. walk from Vila Marachique. Alvor has its own small wildlife reserve with protected unspoilt beaches and dunes that form a safe harbour at the entrance to the estuary.
Boat trips, canoe hire and dolphin watching trip are available at the harbour area.

"Great apartment and lovely area. Kids can't wait to go back!"
We brought our 3 kids last year (8,6 4) on their first sun holiday so we were careful on where we were going to stay. After talking to friends and searching on line we found Alvor and then Vila Marach… More

"Best place visited."
The apartment and complex are wonderful. The lounge and balconies are very spacious with top class fruniture and fittings. The kitchen has a comprehensive range of appliances, microwave, full cooker, dishwasher and large fridge freezer. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and having 2 bathrooms is an added bonus.
The grounds are nicely laid out with plenty of space around the large pool area with childrens pool and play area. The pool bar has an excellent choice of reasonably priced food and drink.
Alvor town is a typical portugese fishing village with a myriad of small cobbled streets housing plenty of bars and restaurants.
Alvor is a beach lovers paradise the long, wide soft sandy beach is a great place to soak up some rays.
