We love staying In this apartment! It is really well situated. Within 10 minutes you can be on the large sandy beach, walking along the river front or strolling round the village shops and restaurants. It is on an apartment complex with several bars, restaurants, a well stocked mini-market and a large well kept swimming pool.
This beautiful apartment has everything you need for a short break or an extended stay. It is very comfortable and even has its own book and dvd library! We lived in it for 4 weeks and it was a home from home.
Alvor is a lovely, small picturesque town with a variety of shops, restaurants and nightlife but the apartment is far enough away if you want peace and quiet.
On site are Portuguese and English run bars and restaurants where we were welcomed as friends. Marcos in particular is excellent and a must to book for Sunday lunch; they also manage the apartment and are really friendly and helpful.
All in all it was a great holiday, so much so we...

About the neighbourhood
Along the Coastline there are plenty of Caves to explore, perhaps as part of a guided tour.
There are regular Boat trips from the Harbour/Promenade area of Alvor for Dolphin watching, Sea-fishing and exploring the local Estuary and Coastline. Some people travel to Vilamoura to join a Sailing Boat Trip that goes along another part of the coastline to see the Algarve from a very different point of view - usually in strong sunlight.

On the outskirts of Alvor is a busy local private Airport where you can book Sightseeing Flights along the Coast or perhaps sky-diving. They appear to give safety training first.

Do take your camera with on any trip outside the apartment - there is so much to catch, remember and share.
