The Algarve region
Algarve is the most southern region of Portugal.
It is the most important tourist region in Portugal and one of the most visited in Europe.
Its temperate Mediterranean climate, characterized by mild short winters, long hot summers, warm and calm waters that bathe its southern coast,
Its natural landscapes, historic, ethnographic attributes and the delicious healthy cuisine attract millions of domestic and foreign tourists every year and that make the Algarve the most visited region in the country.
All this make the region an ideal place for a vacation, alone or with your famillie.
Alvor is one of the Algarve's most popular destinations. This typical fishermen village has succeeded in retaining it's essence along with offering all that you could want for a superb holiday. The warren of narrow winding streets, offers unique landscapes and a huge selection of restaurants, cafés, bars and shops along the pedestrian center of Alvor. Most streets lead down to the riverfront, recently renovated, the ideal place to relax, taking a refreshing drink in the hot summer days, with the company of a gorgeous sunset over the Alvor estuary. There is a small marina that offers boat trips, and from the river walkway there are pathways which make the estuary a nature lover's paradise, particularly bird watchers.
The beaches at Alvor are heaven on earth with crystal clear waters, and the access couldn't be easier. To the East, you can choose from small cove beaches that are nestled at the base of red cliffs, or to the West, a marvelous broad expanse of fine golden sand that extends to the river estuary and over to Meia Praia. The beach is lined by restaurants, and there are various water sports to offer. There is a new wooden boardwalk that runs behind the beach, among the dunes, and is perfect for a lovely walk along the river estuary.
You can choose from the beach restaurants which offer the most amazing views or the ones at the centre of Alvor and try to decide between Portuguese, Indian, Italian or Chinese cuisine. An absolute must is the fresh fish brought in each day by the local fishing boats, grilled to perfection on the open barbeque, served with a salad and some of Portugal's excellent wines.
At Alvor surroundings you can also find other points of interest, such as golf, tennis courses and the Portimão Aerodrome, at 4 km, which offers a wide range of services, including sightseeing flights, parachuting and skydiving.
Alvor is 4 km away from the city of Portimão where besides brand stores and traditional shops, you can find a diverse cultural offer, for example, the Museum and TEMPO – Municipal Theatre of Portimão.

"Location, location, location!"
On arrival we were met by Miguel and Sara who showed us round this large apartment, which had everything you need including a washing machine. There's a huge wardrobe in the bedroom and one of the balconies looks out onto the square, where you'll find the brill Marco's Bistro and also the Chill Out Bar. The beautiful beach is 5 minutes away as is the village with its many wonderful restaurants. Everything really is on your doorstep! Loved everything!

The apartment was spotlessly clean and tidy. It was also very spacious and could easily accommodate four people. Plenty of room to put all your clothes away. It is only a couple of minutes away from the centre of Alvor with all it's great restaurants and bars . There is also bars , restaurants and a supermarket at the complex. The pool area is spotless and large.

"Could not fault this apartment"
We were apprehensive about booking this property, as other reviews were not very kind. However we are so glad that we overlooked our initial thoughts. The apartment was very well equipped, clean and roomy. Miguel, Sara and the team were so friendly and helpful from the first to the last day. The location was good and not to far from the beach or the town with its excellent restaurants about 10 minute walk either way. We would not hesitate on returning or recommending this property.
