We stayed here as a group of four in early November. This was a returning visit for me and I would not hesitate to rent this property again in the near future.
The apartment is beautifully laid out with all the necessities for a comfortable stay. The bedrooms are spacious and extremely well ventilated. The balcony overlooking the pool-area provided us with a perfect location for enjoying breakfast and late evening drinks.
With the taxi rank just around the corner and the main street a mere 5minute stroll, this property is worth a booking.

“Beautiful Apartment in perfect location”
Reviewed 17 December 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed in this apartment in May. It was our first time in Alvor and we were absolutely delighted with our experience.
The apartment is a quality one, with air- conditioning and all modern appliances. It is beautifully maintained, spotlessly clean, with a comfortable, spacious balcony just overlooking the lovely swimming-pool area. It is situated in a very pleasant, security-gated complex which has lovely, well-kept gardens. It's in a quiet area but still only a five-minute walk from the lovely old fishing village of Alvor with its gorgeous beach and many delightful restaurants, bars and shops. There is also a fine supermarket only some minutes from the apartment complex.
Our taxi transport was laid on for us from and back to Faro airport. Triona met us at the apartment and was so very helpful.
We loved our time in this apartment in Alvor. It was such a pleasant, relaxing, no-problem holiday. Many thanks.

“Excellent”

Superb location easy walking access to a beautiful beach. Well maintained and equipped apartment, comfortable, clean and spacious. Pool immaculate and no problem getting a sun lounger. Fabulous restaurants a short walk from the appartment into town. Wonderful will certainly be back. Would now always book a private let in preference to holiday company. Many thanks to the owners.

“Excellent Apartment in a great location”
Reviewed 28 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Second time visitors to Alvor, first time at Vila de Praia, and it was excellent. Always felt with previous apartments we've stayed in that the quality lacked something, but this apartment had everything - modern appliances (including efficient, working air-con, always a bonus) very clean, a balcony you can all fit on comfortably, and comfortable beds.

The complex itself is just the right size - enough people about for the kids to make friends round the pool, but not so many as it was crowded. Whole complex has an air of quality about it, from the clean pool to the well maintained gardens - and whilst it has no shops or bars, they are close by, but out of earshot at night!

Alvor town is a 5 minute walk away, and the beach even closer. Plenty of quality restaurants in town, plus the Cinco Quinas on the beach.

Will return to Alvor again at some point, and will definitely be booking here again.
