Vila da Praia, Alvor is still a traditional, yet beautiful fishing village, which has a lovely harbour, cobbled promenade leading to a myriad of great laid back bars & restaurants. It is a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing location with lovely sandy beaches & an old world charm all of its own. Vila da Praia itself has a fabulous swimming pool and a children's pool situated in private gardens, secured by electric gates (both pedestrian & vehicular) & with decorative metal railing fencing to the perimeter.The complex is centrally located to all amenities, it is a very child friendly environment, the grounds are beautiful, with easy access to the beach, restaurants, bars, leisure centre & the heart of the old town. A big bonus is that it is not on or up one of the large hills like most complexes in & around the village, so the walk in to & out of the village is a pleasure not a chore.The apartment is on the top floor & serviced by 2 lifts within 50m of the front door, so access is not a problem. This also extends to the underground car park where our allocated space is directly adjacent to the lift shaft, making the transferring of luggage & shopping as easy as possible.Travel to/from the airport can be arranged through us or with local taxi firms in Alvor or Faro, the approximate costs at the time of placing this is somewhere in the region of 60 Euro per party of 4, 65 Euro for a minibus of 5+.Car hire in Portugal is reasonably cheap, especially outside the months of July & August, but the beauty of Alvor & Vila da Praia is that a car is not required unless you want easy access to the larger out of town supermarkets or you want to explore the rest of The Algarve & all it has to offer.

About the neighbourhood
The Algarve is a rich & diverse area, becoming more so the further west you head away from Faro & the larger more established resorts. We have been quad biking & horse riding in the hills just behind Alvor & the change in scenary & pace of life is immediately obvious, but well worth checking out. Quad biking around Silves Castle & the surrounding countryside is always a must do for the kids (& us too if I'm being honest) For the polar opposite, you need to experience the new F1 testing track & World Superbike Race Track c/w Go Karts which is something to behold, it's tucked away in the mountains between Alvor & Lagos, so if you're not looking for it you'll never find it, but worth an afternoon of anyone's time, a real A1 facility.
