“Fantastic apartment”
Reviewed September 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed here for a week. Wow, what a lovely apatrment with absolutly everything you need to make your holiday comfortable.
We were met by the owners who had very kindly brought us fresh drinking water from their well along with a bottle of local wine-very nice.
The kitchen cupboards were well stocked with herbs, spices, and other basic dry store essentials making it home from home regarding cooking lovely local produce.
The roof top garden was fantastic affording wonderful views acroos Alvor itself. It had a bbq facilitie should you wish to cook to cook up on the roof.
The location of the apartment was ideal for us. A 20 minute walk in to the town centre and the same to the beech. However, walking back is a bit of a treck if you are carrying shopping and wate,r has it is up hill so we had a taxi back costing around 4 euros. I would definately stay at this apartment again .

“What a great find!”
Reviewed October 26, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This apartment was perfect for our stay in the Algarve. The owner met us with keys and showed us around. It is spacious and clean and seems more `homely` than most holiday lets. All mod cons are provided as well as stock cupboard items like tea, coffee, sugar etc.
The roof terrace is lovely and we were sorry not to have used it more during our short stay; however we made good use of the balconies to catch some last minute sun when we were in!
The apartment is well located in a quiet residential are-far enough away from the busy town but near enough to shops, restaurants and to Alvor when needed. Good transport links made it a good base for travelling around too.
We look forward to returning for a longer stay next time!

“Our Holiday in Alvor”
Reviewed September 28, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The owners were very helpful and flexible when booking. We were met and shown around the apartment. It is spacious and well equipped although the fixtures and fitting are a little old and tired. The apartment is just a short distance from the main road leading into Alvor but we were not affected by traffic noise. A bus service to the town and other local town runs along road so easy to get about About 20 mins walk to the town and 30 mins to the beach - both lovely. Lots of fish restaurants and a good selection of other restaurants. Local fresh food market and a small supermarket (but had most items). Taxi service is good form the town and about 3-4 euros. Also found our way to the west end of Vue beach which was worth the walk.
