“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed May 8, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

A friend and I wanted to celebrate turning the big '50' in style, so decided we would book a holiday. A few people had recommended Alvor, so we settled on this and found Lara's apartment on Holiday Lettings. Having never been away with just a girl friend before, I was constantly emailing Lara questions which she was always happy to answer, usually with 24 hours. We were not disappointed at all. For just the 2 of us, the apartment was huge, so clean and airy and the air con was a god send. We had everything we needed and more besides. Going earlier in the year, the complex was very quiet, probably only ever 10 people around the pool at any time. The balcony is huge, and we enjoyed the morning sunshine on there everyday. The whole complex was being given a face lift during our stay, but this didn't interfere, it really is a lovely well kept place to stay. We both loved Alvor, spent lots of time walking along the boardwalk, on the beach and of course eating at various different restaurants, with The Yacht Club being our favourite, that said, we didn't have a bad meal wherever we ate. Thank you to Lara and of course Joana for showing us around on arrival. Beautiful apartment, don't hesitate to book, we are certainly hoping to repeat our trip next yea.

Amazing apartment in a brilliant location.Brilliant communication from the owner and excellent local contact.
The apartment is spacious and beautifully kept.It is really central to the shops and restaurants of Alvor and we were never short of new places to try.
The pool in the complex is lovely and we were always able to get sun beds.
I can't think of any downsides to staying in this apartment.Thoroughly recommend it.

Laras apartment is first rate from its location right done to its decor. Its well maintained by both joana and suzana and kept to a high standard. Everything you need is there from wifi to a proper washing machine. Lara was a pleasure to deal with and nothing was a problem for her. We hope sometime to visit this apartment again as the pools are great for kids and the complex is lovely and peaceful even with portugal winning Euro16. Thanks again to Lara for allowing us the opportunity to share her home.

“Fantastic apartment and great location”

We've just returned from a week stay at this fantastic apartment in Alvor. The complex is really well looked after and in a great location - about a 10 minute leisurely walk from the shops, bars, restaurants and harbour. The beach is about a 10 minute walk away too, with some really nice beach bars. On our first day we walked to the end of the beach at Alvor and through gaps in the cliffs/caves and it lead to another few smaller, more private beaches which were well worth finding. Restaurant 'Alota' served our best meal. It's near the bottom of the hill near the harbour and the chef cooks your fish or meat on a barbecue out the front of the restaurant. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and was obvious that the owners had recently painted and updated it with new sunloungers, sofa, crockery etc. The swimming pool was undergoing renovation ready for the summer season but the children were pleased to splash about in the childrens pool when they weren't in the sea. If you have a car, nearby Lagos is worth a visit - nice marina, Meia Praia beach and restaurants in the town.

Vila da Praia was one of the best apartments we've stayed in and we are already trying to find another time to go back!
