Our home

Our home in the Algarve is spacious, sunny, stylish, modern and clean, but very comfortable. Our two boys 4, and 7, have their toys and DVD's there. We love the pool and our sun loungers and sun umbreallas and pool toys are in the 2 car underground garage. The kitchen is brand new and easy to use. The bedroom are all very sunny and very large. We have chosen to furnish the apt. to a high standard, and we do NOT rent our apt. out when we are not using it. All linens and towels are new. We have a baby cot and small baby buggy. We also have 3 balconies - 2 overlooking the pool, and one overlooking the front. Balconies have seating, the larger balcony has a table, umbrealla, sun lounger etc. We have 8 other apts. in our block and we know all our neighbours very well. Our apt. has two bathrooms, one with a bath. There is a TV and DVD in the apt. and about 20 - 30 DVS's of varying choice. There is also a radio/CD player. But most nights, if not out in one of the 50+ local restaurants, a bottle of wine, and a seat on the balcony is all anyone would want to chill out and relax.

Property features

Who we are

  1. My husband and I are in our early 40's, we are two professionals who now live and work in Dublin, Ireland. But we also lived in Boston, MA, USA for ten years. We have two little boys and we love to holiday together. We love the sun, beeches, and locations with lots of things to do and see, that are near a village/city/town. This is our first time ever trying a holiday exchange, and if truth be told we are probably a bit nervous, but we are certainly up for a new holiday destination.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We chose our apt. because it is very central to 3 local towns. We are 1km from Alvor which is a popular fishing village with lots of shops and many many fine restaurants (steak, fish, Indian, Chinese etc.) and taverns. Alvor has 2 fabulous beeches with great parking. Alvor also has 2 large supermarkets which are lovely, and the indoor food market. We are also 1km from Portimao, the Marina area. Portimao has a very large indoor food market which all visitors should experience. It has boating trips, concerts in the summer, and lots of lovely shops, wine boutiques, and restaurants all down the pier. We are also 1km from Pria Da Rocha, which is more for folks who like clubbing, and pubbing, but again beautiful beeches. Also has new Marina, and this is where the surfing, diving, water sports can be taken. Other local amenities are wine tasting, Slide and Splash and Aquamarine all 15 mins by car. Aldi, Lidle are 2 mins. drive from the Apt. Plus the Algarve's newest and most modern Shopping complex, just opened last year. This has all brands, shops, restaurants, coffee shops you'd recognize. Again this also has a large food market, plus a McDonalds, and a Kids Zone beside it, where kids can play on all sorts of things. We have a two car space underground garage, and we'd recommend car hire.
