"lovely appartment in a fantastic setting"
My wife and I are just back from a 10 day stay.The appartment is spacious,clean,light and airy and very well equipped.Set in lovely quiet gardens just 40yards away from a really warm and safe pool.It was always quiet and the pool was never busy and there are plenty of beds and shades.You will need a car to get into Alvor,5 mins drive,where there is an excellent selection of eateries.
If you are looking for a quiet,relaxing and restful holiday you wouldn't be able to better this.Ann,the owner,was a great help to us when we needed to alter our dates and we would certainly go back again.No hesitation in recommending this.

"A feel good, peaceful getaway"
We have stayed in Apartment B3E on the Alto Golf resort, Alvor in Portugal two years running. We really liked the apartment and it met all our needs. There was enough room for 2 adults and our 3 children. The apartment is very clean and tastefully decorated. On the days we wanted to eat in there was ample kitchen equipment to cook with. We particularly appreciated the books left for holiday reading and the cupboard in the kitchen with essential supplies in. The gardens surrounding the apartment are lovely and peaceful, the pool is just 20ms from the apartment. We visited in August and were surprised that on each visit the apartments where we stayed were so peaceful and very often we had the pool to ourselves. Both Vau beach and Alvor beach were within easy walking distance and both are lovely beaches. We really liked Alvor town and you could walk there although our children refused and we drove down most evenings, it does say it is a 20 minute walk to Alvor but it took us a good 40 minutes at a fast pace. We were also able to walk to Praia de Roche and my husband went on an early morning jaunt to Portimao. The owners of the apartment are really helpful and friendly and booking was easy. The management company are also helpful and sorted the one problem we had ( an extra set of linen required) straight away. Both holidays we have had in this apartment have been fantastic and I know everybody in our family would like to return again.

"An ideal getaway for pure relaxation!"
My husband and I stayed in apt B3e in September, it was his first visit but my third. We absolutley loved it. The apartment is extremely comfortable and finished to a high standard with everything you could need on a holiday. The pool is a 2 second walk from the patio which is ideal for a lazy break. Vau Beach is just down the hill if you feel more energetic and you can walk for miles at the waters edge, have a swim or a coffee on the beach and be back in the apartment in 10 minutes.
Alvor village is quite near, although you would need to get a taxi. We found this great as you could opt to visit the pretty town with its great variety of competitively priced restaurants or stay at home and eat on the patio watching the sun set.
Its an ideal place for a relaxing break and we came back rested and rejuvenated and really looking forward to our next trip! Our only complaint was that the break was too short!
