Vila da Praia
from £33 /night help
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This holiday apartment is set in a recently completed private complex, with a pleasant garden and 2 swimming pools; one for adults and one for children. This bright, daylight filled, ground floor apartment is located near the beach and the centre of the village of Alvor, one of the most beautiful and quiet areas in the Algarve.
Alvor is a fishing village located 5 km west of Portimão. The village itself is a maze of cobbled streets and a 16th-century parish church with a fine Manueline portal featuring a round arch and abstract floral motifs. As well as Alvor beach itself, there are some lovely golden stretches of sand towards Portimão, most notably the small cove of Praia dos Três Irmãos with its magnificent red cliffs. Further east are the deserted caves and grottoes at João de Areus and the quiet, secluded beach of Praia do Vau nearby. Further east, the bustling fishing port of Portimão has many good restaurants and plenty of night-life.

The Algarve region
The Algarve has a temperate climate almost all year round and boasts over 300 days of sunshine a year. The tourist season extends from March to October and it only really quiets down in the dead of winter. The wonderful sandy beaches of the Algarve are unspoilt and amongst the finest in the world.
Away from the tourist hub, explore the quaint unspoilt villages with their narrow cobbled streets, the Ria de Alvor, the majestic Serra de Monchique or the rugged beauty of the South Westerly tip of Europe, Sagres and Cape St Vincent. Water sports such as swimming, snorkelling and big-game fishing are popular along the Algarve coast, as are boat trips exploring the caves and grottos. Several water parks and theme parks will ensure that the children never get bored.
Alvor is a fishing village located 5 km west of Portimão, it became an important port during the time of the Moorish occupation. It once had its own castle, which was destroyed by the earthquake on 1 November, 1755. Originally built by the Carthaginians in 436 AD, it was attacked and plundered by the Christian Crusaders in 1189, at the same time as the larger settlements of Silves and Portimão were taken. What to see. The village itself is a maze of cobbled streets and a 16th-century parish church with a fine Manueline portal featuring a round arch and abstract floral motifs.
As well as Alvor beach itself, there are some lovely golden stretches of sand towards Portimão, most notably the small cove of Praia dos Três Irmãos with its magnificent red cliffs. Further east are the deserted caves and grottoes at João de Areus and the quiet, secluded beach of Praia do Vau nearby.

An excellent apartment and greeting on our arrival to Alvor. The welcoming bowl of fruit was a lovely suprise and much appreciated. The apartment was full of all home comforts from the rooms to the washing machine, Being on the ground floor was an extra bonus although a lift to the first and second floors is available.
The apartment was clean, well furnished and very comfortable, any minor problems were soon sorted out
We would recommend this rental as it is to a very high standard. We would love to stay again in the future
