Location description from owner

The Algarve region

The Algarve has an excellent climate all year round and a diverse landscape from the west coast Cape Sao Vincente to central Algarve with gentler beaches and pretty coves. Visit historic Silves and the the Spa of Caldas Monchique . Alvor offers a choice of beaches and a harbour and estuary with a protected wildlife area, boat trips, canoe hire and dolphin cruises. Visit Aqualand, ZooMarine, Portimao (3km), Lagos (18 km) and Albufeira with marinas and shopping facilities.

Alvor

Vila Marachique is NEXT TO ALTO GOLF, CLOSE TO PENINA GOLF and within easy drive of the Central Algarves famous golf courses. Alvor is an attractive fishing village in the midst of holiday apartments and large private villas with a wide choice of restaurants, bars, small shops and holiday activities. These focus on 2 areas: the harbour- lagoon area of the Rio Alvor estuary; and the extensive, clean, sandy beach and dunes that eventually lead to typical Algarve coves and rock formations as you move east towards Praia da Rocha and Portimao. A series of boardwalks provide wheelchair and buggy access to the dunes, lagoon and beach.Boat trips, canoe hire and dolphin watching trips are available at the harbour area.There are public tennis courts and a modern, indoor swimming pool by the harbour and new fisherman's huts- this is still a fishing village with fish market. Aqualand, ZooMarine and similar attractions are within 25 mins drive. Or visit the historic towns of Lagos and Silves.The local beaches are clean, sandy and protected from over development. They have all modern facilities-sunloungers, parasols for hire and cafes, bars and restaurants. Or walk a short distance and find long stretches away from it all. There are classic Algarve coves with cliffs and rock formations to explore. Restaurants include traditional Portuguese and seafood, Italian, Indian ,and Chinese. India Hut 1 is an authentic treat.There are restaurants 2 mins walk from Vila Marachique (Por do Sol and Big Reds)or go into Alvor and stroll around the small old town until you find your favourite. Visit ;Casa da Rio with a wonderful view across the harbour to the dunes beyond. Or try the beach restaurant- Dunas with great tapas (inc. vegetarian selection). Tango and Ruccula in a side street. Bars include Irish and sports bars but most are Portuguese style -often with a cafe and snacks available. Try those at the small square at the top of the hill or by the new market, for a light lunch or coffee, cakes and cold drinks during the day. Outdoor dining and roof terraces with sunset views are the norm. Cosy restaurants are open on cooler winters evenings.Alvor has its own small wildlife reserve with protected , unspoilt beaches and dunes that form a safe harbour at the entrance to the Rio Alvor estuary. So if you have binoculars -remember to bring them. Dolphin -watching trips(small scale company ) leave from the cobbled promenade area.Its a short drive to the beaches between Armacao de Pera and Salgados and the Pera lagoons with birds. Algarve towns have storks nesting (see Silves, Lagos ) watch them soaring on thermals in the sky. They gather in fields outside Silves by the River Arade before migrating.Drive up towards Monchique and Foia and you may see buzzards, vultures, eagles and lots of little brown birds mainly of interest to serious birders! You can see bee eaters and occasionally kingfishers and woodpeckers. E-mail us for info.

“Excellent Apartment in Lovely Complex”

Reviewed 13 Feb 2015

We have stayed at Villa Marachique many times in different apartments and this has been our favourite. All 1-beds in this block are similar in size but this apartment benefits from a large elevated double balcony which catches the sun all afternoon and evening. The apartment was spotlessly clean and there was a mid-week maid service. We spent most of the week at the large pool in the centre of the development which has a small cafe. The pool is surrounded by extensive well maintained grounds and so never feels claustrophobic or overcrowded. There were plenty of sunloungers available during our visit (June). We had a lovely holiday and will hopefully be back again.

“Everything and more”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2011

Thank you Pam and Rob for the use of your lovely apartment. It was so well equipped that everything that could possibly be needed was available and there were little extra touches that made it home from home. The balcony and furniture were put to good use as we had fabulous weather the whole week. The information that you provided was invaluable, we visited most of the places you suggested including the excellent local restaurant. Pat & Dennis Staffordshire Oct 2011

“Another enjoyable holiday at Vila Marachique”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2011

Have just spent 12 days here - our 5th visit to the apartment. It is an exremely comfortable apartment with all the eqipment you could need for your stay. The pool area is just amazing and this year the pool bar is run by the residents' associaion who have 2 wonderful people in charge - Tony and Jane. Nothing is too much trouble and they serve excellent food including breakfasts in the morning! They will also organise starter packs of food on request and this is a great asset on arrival. However the little supermarket along the road is also excellent and they stock a good range of food and drinks. It is a pleasant 15-20 min walk into Alvor where there is a vast choice of restaurants for eating with others closer by especially Por Do Sol opposite the complex. Maid service is first class as well.
