Location description from owner
The Algarve region
The western Algarve has something for everyone. From the bustling town centre of Lagos, to its quite stunning cave's and breathtaking sea views.North of Silves, a town which today is dominated by the ochre ramparts of its huge castle dating back to the crusades we find Monchique. Monchique is a welcome break from beaches and villas as it's all about cobbled streets, rural living and a slower, more traditional pace of life. It's not uncommon to see an old Portuguese gentleman and his trusty donkey and cart plodding up the winding roads to get to the top.Carvoeiro and Ferragudo are two fishing villages that have welcomed tourism and modern living while retaining their cultural roots. In Ferragudo a maze of cottages tumble down towards the river and Praia Grande beaches. These beaches are popular with sunbathers and windsurfers alike, but if you just want to relax and sample some of the finest seafood the region has to offer you can always try one of the restaurants that line the tiny quayside while looking out to the marina of Portimao and Praia da Rocha.Carvoeiro is ideal for families. Centred round the main beach, Carvoeiro offers a myriad of restaurants and entertainment as well as great snorkelling, prestigious Pestana golf courses and a thriving expat community that welcomes holiday makers, travellers and residents to its heart.Moving along from Carvoeiro we find Alvor. A maze of cobbled streets, beautiful bays and wooden walkways through tranquil nature reserves Alvor is a popular tourist destination and a must for seafood lovers. Lagos, many people's favourite part of Western Algarve combines the luxury and class of Vilamoura, the entertaining nature of Albufeira with an easy going atmosphere and some of the trendiest nightlife spots on the south coast. Lagos exudes a lively and inviting welcome, getting the mix between modern amenities and historical sights just right.
Alvor is a small fishing village 5 kms west of Portimão and only 40 minutes from Faro airport. If you are looking for a Traditional unspoilt location, for a peaceful holiday, with fantastic beaches, then this is the place to come. Close enough to the town of Portimão for further action, discos and shopping. This picturesque village: with streets of white houses, and colourful boats in the harbour, has a rich history dating back to pre-Roman times. Alvor remains a working fishing community with a fish market and thriving streets based around a 16th century Church at its centre. Traditional restaurants and modern bars are available in this natural setting, providing you with all your needs without spoiling the raw beauty of the village. Today Alvor is renowned for it's superb beaches: an opportunity for you to stroll along one of the best sandy beaches in the Algarve, or lie back in the enchanting surroundings of a secluded cove with the picturesque cliffs climbing high above you.

“We absolutely loved our stay at Vila da Praia!”
The apartment is nicely decorated and really spacious. Because the apartment is so well equipped with everything you could need, we stayed home some evenings, cooked and enjoyed dinner on the balcony. The complex itself is really private and can only be accessed with a security key. The pool is gorgeous and is surrounded by lovely garden landscaping. The apartment is really central and only a 5 minute walk to the centre of town and the nearest shopping market. Their bread is to die for and they make several fresh batches daily. If you are travelling with a family or large group, this is the place to stay. It is central, safe and you enjoy the feeling of being at home in the idyllic setting of Alvor! Alvor itself is a pretty fishing village and is nicely busy with some lovely restaurants. We highly recommend staying here. Patricia and Eugene, Galway (Ireland)
Hi Patricia and Eugene Thanks for your kind review. I am so glad you enjoyed the apartment and indeed Alvor. Look forward to seeing you again Michael
“Loved this place...”
We have been to Alvor before but I think this is actually the nicest apartment we ever stayed in… anywhere. Immaculately clean and very spacious and comfortable. All mod cons – air con, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave etc. and kitchen well stocked with plenty of pots and utensils so you could easily cook every night if you wanted. Location was really quiet with a lovely pool area but still an easy walk to the beautiful beach, about 5 minutes into centre of Alvor and 2 minutes from a nice grocery store. There is a small mini market even closer. Alvor itself is a lovely little fishing village that has managed to maintain a lot of its character. It has plenty of nice restaurants to choose from, bars with music and a nice mix of young families and couples 40+. Michael was really helpful with general recommendations in and around Alvor and he gave us a contact for a transport company from the airport who were really good – all English speaking drivers.
“Enjoyed by 3 generations.”
We have just returned from our 3rd stay in this lovely apartment. It is situated on a gated complex and feels very secure. It is in an ideal location, approx 5 minutes from both the town and the beautiful beach. The apartment is very clean and has all that is required for a good holiday. The balcony has lovely views over the pool area, and is an excellent place to start the day. There are many restaurants and bars in the area within easy walking distance, and shops on the complex opposite. The new boardwalk in Alvor has been an excellent addition to the town and we walked along it most days. It was an easy booking process as Michael responds quickly and is very helpful. We have stayed many times in Alvor, and hope to return again in the near future.
“A little piece of Heaven”
This luxurious apartment offered everything we could possibly need. The location was absolutely perfect just a short walk from the village where there is an abundance of excellent restaurants and pubs offering craic and entertainment. The accommodation provides excellent views from both the living room and main bedroom. Alvor also offers an excellent bus service and we went to Vilamora, Monchique and pria da Lux. 5* hotels provide spa facilities should you wish to indulge yourself all within walking distance. The service from our arrival at Faro airport where our driver was waiting for us to our departure was perfect. Michael's advice on where to eat and drink was very helpful. We would certainly recommend this apartment to our friends and we hope to be back to this apartment later this year.
