We stay in Alvor nearly every year and knew where this apartment was. 5 minutes easy flat walk to the beach and a stroll to the village.
It is on the top floor of a small, low rise apartment block. It has a lift. The main entrance is gated making it feel very secure. Not that I have ever felt anything but secure in Alvor.
The apartment has two bedrooms with twin beds, 2 bathrooms one with a full bath and shower over. The other just a shower. Plenty of storage all round. Apartment is reasonably equipped, some places are a wee bit tired. There are two large balconies, with only one set of furniture on one. Something on the other would have been nice. It also has a washing machine. Large sofa bed in the livingroom so could easily sleep 6.
There is a pool and loungers in the grounds. Accessed by keys, very private and nicely maintained.
Carla met us on arrival after a phone call and gave us a bottle of wine, which was a nice touch.
The only down side I felt was the fact we had only one set of keys. We had to organise our separate outings so someone could get keys. We were travelling with two teenagers.
