Description from owner


Superb top floor (2nd floor) 1 bed apartment (with additional sleeping in the lounge) within the finest complex of the beautiful & traditional fishing village of Alvor.The accommodation briefly comprises of the following - A fully equipped kitchen, inc.a full sized s/s oven/grill, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster & a whole host of utensils etc. A fully tiled bathroom with full sized bath & shower, WC, bidet, basin (within a vanity unit), 110v hair dryer & plenty of storage for towels & toiletries.A large & spacious lounge / dining area, incl. A/C unit, set top box LED TV c/w Sky Sports 1, 2, 3, Golf, F1, BT Sports 1 & 2 plus all UK terrestrial channels, 7 day catch up TV & a load of European TV channels from all major countries, fully paid & unlimited hi-speed WIFI internet, an L shaped sofa that easily converts to a double bed with bedding storage under, a 2 seater pull out sofa bed, dining table & chairs plus side tables & a storage unit.A double bedroom, bedside cabinets & sliding wardrobes which houses a digital safe & coat hangers (I know it sounds daft to state that, but better to be safe & save you packing them).Our balcony gets the sun in the afternoon/evening, c/w a swing chair (on application), yukka plant, table & chairs (fixed & reclining), all with great views of the estuary & village.We also have a wardrobe in the entrance stocked with sun lounger cushions, a yellow V da P approved sun brolley and other pool/beach related items all of which are provided for your use.Towels /fresh linen provided. Vila da Praia, Alvor is still a traditional, yet beautiful fishing village, which has a lovely harbour, cobbled promenade leading to a myriad of great laid back bars & restaurants. It is a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing location with lovely sandy beaches & an old world charm all of its own. Vila da Praia itself has a fabulous swimming pool and a children's pool situated in private gardens, secured by electric gates (both pedestrian & vehicular) & with decorative metal railing fencing to the perimeter.The complex is centrally located to all amenities, it is a very child friendly environment, the grounds are beautiful, with easy access to the beach, restaurants, bars, leisure centre & the heart of the old town. A big bonus is that it is not on or up one of the large hills like most complexes in & around the village, so the walk in to & out of the village is a pleasure not a chore.The apartment is on the top floor & serviced by 2 lifts within 50m of the front door, so access is not a problem. This also extends to the underground car park where our allocated space is directly adjacent to the lift shaft, making the transferring of luggage & shopping as easy as possible.Travel to/from the airport can be arranged through us or with local taxi firms in Alvor or Faro, the approximate costs at the time of placing this is somewhere in the region of 60 Euro per party of 4, 65 Euro for a minibus of 5+.Car hire in Portugal is reasonably cheap, especially outside the months of July & August, but the beauty of Alvor & Vila da Praia is that a car is not required unless you want easy access to the larger out of town supermarkets or you want to explore the rest of The Algarve & all it has to offer.

This excellent apartment provided us with a very enjoyable holiday experience. It is fully equipped with all the appliances you would need. Of particular attraction was the availability of free WiFi and a wide range of UK and international TV channels. We enjoyed the location of the apartment which was private and peaceful within the complex. A particular word of thanks to the owner, Lourdes Saoite, who helped us in every way possible to ensure we enjoyed our stay. This is an apartment we will return to. It's location within minutes walk from town and beach is ideal.
