"Had a lovely week here in May. Def a home from home. Every home comfort you could ask for. Rainfall showers,lovely new kitchen with induction hob, dishwasher, washing machine, tv with all the channels. Lots of instructions from the owner re places to go and see in the area. It was lovely to sit on the balcony with the sea view having breakfast. We got taxis into town at night for € 5. Called from apt and they were at the gate in a few mins. Lots of lovely restaurants in Alvor. Havinng a car at our disposal was a good idea but we walked to the beach most days. Will def be back. (June 2016)
