Location & area

The location is the fishing village of Alvor, located in the Western Algarve, between Portimao to the east and Lagos to the west. It is approximately 50 inutes from the airport at Faro, with a good connecting motorway for most of the journey. We can always arrange for you a Two Way private "Airport Transfer" Service, which is well worth doing, and means you will Not have to worry about a thing!

It is a fishing village adjacent to a natural lagoon at the River Alvor estuary, which runs in to the Atlantic Ocean only a few hundred meters away. Generally it is not as busy as many other more touristy coastal resorts in the Algarve, and much of the land near the village is protected from being built on as it is ecologically rich. Presumably this is one reason why the land and property value in Alvor tends to be higher than other surrounding areas. The unspoilt nature of the area is no doubt another reason.

The huge size of the beach and the relatively small size of the village and few adjacent hotels mean that it is not as busy as many other areas on the Algarve coast. At quieter times of the year, even though the weather is likely to be pleasantly warm, the 4km beach (shown above) is as good as your own.

The main shopping and eating areas are within easy reach on foot. There are lively bars if you wish to go a little crazy, which are generally open all year round. However, apart from the peak months, overall this is a peaceful location. There is a small marina and harbour within 400m of the apartment, from which the local fishermen are based, with a wide promenade where most of the boat trips start. It is very easy to find any number of quiet spots only a few minutes from the village, in beautiful surroundings, especially overlooking
