It features 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, air conditioning, a large open plan kitchen with breakfast bar, open onto a dining area and seating area, which has a double sofabed. Facilities include a fully equipped kitchen, flat screen TVs in the lounge and main bedroom, cable TV, high speed internet with wifi, washing machine, electric heaters for the winter and fans for the summer. We also now have a travel bed for a baby/infant. This is a no smoking apartment (guests may smoke on the terrace only) and no pets are allowed. For your comfort and safety all appliances including heaters and the water heater are electric. Further all bedding and linens are anti allergenic. For your enjoyment there is a DVD and some DVD films, some books and board games. The balcony is South West facing and benefits from sunshine all afternoon and evening. It looks across to the pool area and Lagos to the West and the sea to the South. Great for sitting or lying outside to eat, drink or just relax. An English and French speaking representative will meet you on arrival. For stays longer than 11 days, a weekly clean and change of towels and linens is included. For monthly stays and longer the clean, change of towels and linens is included every 2 weeks. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx The pool area has both and adult and children's pools and is generally quiet. It is accessed using a magnetic control. Note that there is no lifeguard so any pool use is strictly at your own risk and any children should be supervised at all times. Please bring your own beach towels. There are plenty of sun loungers around the pool (we provide a couple of lounger cushions you may take to the pool if needed). Local charge payable for replacement of pool control or apartment keys. Parking is available in the development on a first come first served basis. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Alvor has supermarkets, many small shops, a traditional market and even a kids play area in the old castle. However the highlight is the fantastic beach, several kilometres of unbroken golden sand, with an accompanying boardwalk practically the whole length, which loops in a figure 8 when it meets the nature reserve estuary area, giving a total length of around 9 km. There is also a fantastic clifftop walk toward Portimao. Alvor has over 100 cafes, bars and restaurants, the fishing harbour is favoured for river front restaurants which BBQ the days catch and serve it to you overlooking the estuary, harbour etc. Boat trips, fishing and so forth are readily available. Many venues do live music in the evenings but perhaps the most unexpected thing we have come across is SITA- Soul in the Algarve- next one 14 May 2017. Portimao is a short drive or bus ride away (walkable but better part of an hour) and has many small shops, hypermarkets, multiplex cinemas and even a football stadium. The riverfront area is really pleasant. Praia da Rocha is great for nightlife, especially in Summer. Most unusual thing we have found so far- Festival of Saint Martinho, in November each year, a fun fair, food and so forth- this festival has been going since 1662! The location is ideal for families, golfers (Penina and Alto Golf are very close, many more within half hour drive) and couples and is just minutes drive from the N125 and A22 to make exploring the Algarve accessible (all driving times approximate)- Slide and Splash 15 mins, Aqualand 25 mins, 20 mins to new Autodome and Go-Kart track, 30 mins to Zoo Marine where you can swim with Dolphins, 20 mins to Lagos Zoo. A trip into the Monchique Mountains is just 20 minutes drive and allows you to explore the traditional Portugal. The old Moorish capital of Silves is also around 25 minutes drive and the castle and cathedral are highlights of historical Algarve- and look out for the historic festival in Summer. Further afield about 45 minutes drive brings you, eastwards, to the capital of Faro or, westwards, the historic town of Sagres, from which ships left for the discoveries and the Cape of Saint Vincent, the South Western most point in Portugal.

Thank you for your kind comments. Glad you enjoyed the pool, yes the tall trees to one side tend to shade at least part of it all day, great especially when hot. You would all be most welcome back.
