The location of the apartment is amazing, walk distance from sandy beaches but the pool is the biggest asset we enjoyed the most. Ideal holiday apartment for family and kids, lovely house owner ready to help and solve any enquiries that one may have.

About the neighbourhood
Prainha was one of the first resort villages in the western algarve. The trees are mature, the apartments are low rise and the whole resort is beautifully maintained. There is a hotel with a large family pool where you can hire bikes or taxis. There is a Thalgo (Spa) that you can visit for beauty treatments, gym or to use the heated pool. The Spa use is at additional cost. There are tennis courts that can be hired. There is a small supermarket on site. The beach is a few minutes walk away, in one direction a wide sweeping golden sand beach with watersports hire available and several beachside restaurants. In the other direction there are several small coves with amazing rock formations (see photos)
Getting around
Car parking is free on the complex and in Alvor town. You can walk into Alvor along the beach or the newly build boardwalk. Taxis from the hotel take 3-4 minutes to get you into Alvor. The hotel can hire you bicycles. There are buses that can take you to other nearby towns such as Portimao and Lagos. In Alvor there are various companies offering excursion tours and boat trips to the nearby coves and caves or for dolphin watching.
