“Home from home!”
Excellent apartment on lovely, family complex. Close to the wonderful Alvor Harbour. A spacious, clean and well equipped apartment with views over the pool and sea beyond. Michael, the owner, was very helpful and did everything he could to ensure that we got the most from the holiday. Would definitely book again.
Response from the owner Hi Jen Glad you enjoyed it. Hope to see you soon again. Michael
“Apartment location ideal for "oldies" and the balconies suited our needs perfectly.”
We felt very much at home in this lovely spacious apartment ( 3 was )with the perfect aspect for spending time on the balconies- breakfast on one - afternoon reading on the other after our daily walks - such a choice .Proximity to wonderful restaurants a bonus so not too much cooking ! Michael the perfect host - very patient and helpful - even recommending the most helpful transfer company --ALGARVE 365 We have already booked for next year . Hilda. and. Peter
Response from the owner Hi Hilda Thank you for your kind review. We look forward to seeing you again next year. Thanks again Michael
This was our third stay in Alvor & our first time in this apartment. We couldn't have asked for anything more. The location is perfect. The grounds & pool are lovely & clean & safe. The apartment has everything you need & more. It is very well equipped, clean & very spacious. I would highly recommend & will definitely be booking again!
Response from the owner Thank you Leslie for your lovely review. So glad you had a good holiday and enjoyed your stay in our apartment . See you next year. Michael
Had stayed at a different apartment at Vila da Praia last year, we found this one at a very reasonable price and decided to book. Michael was very helpful with any questions we had and everything was explained fully. It's a second floor central apartment and so is absolutely huge. A great open plan living dining area with a good sized kitchen and breakfast bar. Two large bedrooms, one en-suite. Balconies with great views of the pool area and beyond that, the beach and ocean. Beautiful. Would absolutely recommend this apartment without a doubt.
Response from the owner Hi James Thank you for your kind review . I'm so glad you enjoyed your holiday and liked our apartment .Look forward to seeing you next year. Michael
“Another fantastic stay in Vila daPraia”
We're just back from another week in Micheal's lovely apartment. It's got everything you need and is comfortable, spacious and clean. Alvor is perfect for a family holiday and the apartment is convenient for both the beach and the wonderful restaurants in the town.
Response from the owner Great to hear you enjoyed your time and look forward to seeing you again next year All the best Michael
This apartment was fantastic, everything we needed. It was spacious and most importantly it was clean, the beds were comfy too. Tv has Netflix so was great for the kids, the pool was fab with a smaller kids pool. Alvor itself we can never fault we love the place so much. Hope to return soon
Response from the owner Hi Katie Thanks for your kind review. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Michael
“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)
Response from the owner 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.
