Alvor was one a quaint fishing village and you can still see the fishermen bringing in their catch at dusk. Local attractions such as Zoo marine, Slide and Splash, water parks, Monchique Mountains and fishing trips / cruises are also available.
Stroll through cobbled streets in the historic town of Silves, the former Moorish capital of the Algarve, which is dominated by a formidable sandstone castle.
Cobbled streets, whitewashed houses and quaint fishing villages decorate the Algarve’s dramatic coastline. With its golden sandy beaches, it’s a melting pot of different cultures, combining Vilamoura’s casinos and luxury hotels, Praia da Rocha’s pavement cafes and Albufeira’s buzzing nightlife.
Think of the Algarve and you think of sunshine breaks and relaxing holidays. You imagine golden beaches on the coast of calm sea waters, sun-kissed tourists relaxing and sampling the delights that this wonderful region of Portugal has to offer.
Algarve holidays have long been thought of as great family holidays and beach holidays and the region has deservedly earned a reputation for golfing holidays too.
However the Algarve should also be known for it's truly unique contrast between the golden coastline and the beautiful rural countryside, it's many historic attractions making it the perfect holiday destination for interests such as photography, painting, nature watching, walking and other outdoor pursuits.
The beautiful sandy beaches are, of course, one of the major attractions for the Algarve.
The Algarve is perfect for walking, sightseeing and cycling and for all the sports you can imagine – surfing, golf, tennis, horse riding, kayaking and even extreme sports such as kitesurfing, rock climbing and wakeboarding.
Families can enjoy water parks, theme parks and zoos, boat trips along the breath-taking coastline (with dinghy rides into the caves and 'grottos' and the opportunity to see dolphins too), crazy golf, karting and many other things to do in the Algarve!

"A thoroughly enjoyable holiday"
The whole booking process with the owner was a pleasure from the start. Great communication and very accommodating. We were a group of two adults a child of 7 and one Senior citizen of 80 years. The complex is easy enough to find from the airport and is very close to the main roads if you want to explore the region. As the profile says you are indeed so very close to the best the Algarve has to offer.
The apartment was all we could have hoped for. It was clean, spacious, well equipped and to have a private parking place in the underground garage was a real bonus. It was a real home from home. The best part was the views. The balcony overlooked the pool and tennis courts so I could watch my son play tennis with my mum every morning.
The complex itself is great. Every morning we played tennis and had a swim in the indoor heated pool and what a pool. Not your tiny gym club pool where four strokes and you hit your head. Oh no this was approx. 20 metres and with a Jacuzzi just beside it. What a way to start the day.
We cant wait till we come here again. Next time we will book for longer than ten days!!
Thank you Lincoln
