A comfortable and spacious apartment, although a little dated. Good location, nice restaurants nearby but really a car is the best way of getting to and from the beach, and for shopping! Electric fans in each room, and with sliding doors back and front balconies,...More

About the neighbourhood
The picturesque fishing village of Alvor is ideal for families of all ages. It has beautiful clean beaches with good restaurants and cafes and the sea is well patrolled by lifeguards. From the harbour there are boat trips along the coast either towards Lagos or Pria de Rocha; these can be fishing, sightseeing or romantic moonlight trips, you choose! The village of Alvor is made up of quaint cobblestoned pedestrianised streets which are fun to explore. There are souvenir stores selling cork items, gemstones and pottery and a wide variety of places to eat and drink. If you want to travel further afield for example to the mountains at Monchique, the weekly market at Quarteira, the golden chapel at Lagos or even Lisbon there are tourist shops here to arrange trips for you.
