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. Further east, the bustling fishing port of Portimão has many good restaurants and plenty of night-life.

"Perfect one bedroom apartment for our little family and only five minutes walk to beach and town"
Large ground floor apartment equipped with baby cot and high chair - perfect for our 10month old... it really made our stay so much easier. Kitchen equipped with everything we needed to cook our own meals. Less than two min walk to Alisuper... a decent size supermarket... we would definitely consider heading back here.

This apartment was very clean and we were very well looked after by Marta, when we had a problem with the television she came immediately to sort it out, will stay there again.

"Alvor - our second home"
Our third year staying at this apartment for 8 week winter holiday. (Jan to March) It had just been totally redecorated and was very bright and airy. It has a sunny spacious terrace which we used for sunbathing during the 56 days of sunshine! It is very conveniently situated the beach (and newboardwalks suitable for prams and the disabled), literally 5 mins away and is a on a lovely secure gated site. Bedding/towels changed and bathroom cleaned every week so housework is minimal even for such a long stay. Because it is spacious it is suited to summer use and can be a little cold in the winter evenings. We have advised Paulo (the owner) of one or two items that we think would make winter lets more comfortable and as always he is obliging by looking into them.
We are golfers and were able to rent the TV Golfe channel in apartment for a small charge. We played golf at the Morgado/Alamos course in the Monchique (15 mins away) as they had good winter deals. Alvor itself is a beautiful old fashioned fishing village, but has all amenities you could ask for, bars; restaurants; shops of all kinds and the people are really friendly. In winter walking the beach early morning is like having your own private island. We very much hope to return next year.

"great location and spacious one bed apartment"
I travelled with my partner and our five month old baby in September and we very much enjoyed our stay. The apartment was very spacious which was ideal for all our baby things, also we had everything we needed provided for us including baby cot and high chair. Apartment was very close to beach and centre, well within walking distance. The resort is ideal for families with young children as there is no late loud entertainment on the resort to keep anyone awake. Pool was nice and big with a nice size toodlers pool too. great value for money

"Apartment has potential - in a great location"
The apartment was potentially lovely but there was very little furniture and what was there needed replacing. It was all very basic but was a lovely sized apartment that needed a bit of TLC. The swi… More
