Fabulously warm welcome from Maria when we arrived in Alvor. Accommodation had everything we needed and was spotlessly clean. On arrival Maria drove us to the supermarket to get some basics, while her husband picked us some oranges and apricots from their fruit trees!!
10-15 mins walk to centre of Alvor. Accommodation is beside Alvor village - good for coffee, drinks and has a small supermarket. Worth a wee look around.
We had a really lovely holiday. Alvor beach is stunning with the surreal rock formations at one end and lovely board walk around nature reserve at the other end. We met a lot of people who return every year and several who had chosen to make it their home. I can understand why.
It was all enhanced by the friendliness of Maria who went out of her way to make our stay one that we'll always remember.
