About the neighborhood
Quinta da Amoreira is located in the quiet Amoreira area, a mere 12 minute walk to the beach (approx. 900mtr), whereas Alvor village requires a 17 minute walk (approx. 1.5km). There is a small convenience store across the road from the apartment complex, a mere 2 minutes walk, to provide you with all your day to day shopping needs. Larger supermarkets are about 15 minute walk or 5 minutes drive away. There are a few restaurants and bars within a convenient 5 minute walk from the apartment, including a pizzeria, steakhouse, traditional portugese cuisine and a take away, a cocktail bar and regular bar. There are fantastic restaurants in Alvor. Fish is barbecued outside many & the atmosphere is great!
How to get there
Distance from Faro Airport to Alvor: 74 km (45min drive). We will provide detailed driving directions to the apartment in the event you should hire a car during your stay. Depending on the time of the year this may may be hardly more expensive than getting a taxi and give you added convenience. Simply collect your car from Faro Airport and enjoy a straightforward drive through central and western Algarve to Alvor, either down the A22 motorway (a toll road) or down the secondary N125 road. Travel from Faro to Alvor by Taxi: 74€ for a 4 seater Mon-Fri 6am-9pm (88€ outside this time and bank holidays); €96 or €113 for a 6 seater depending on time.
