Casa do Manel is an elegant Sea retreat. It has a unique panoramic view over the Alvor beach, the natural park and the local fishermen's harbour. It sits on the quiet side of the lively village, offering beautiful sunsets, 5min walk to the beach.

The space
The house has been redesigned by Inês Almeida architect, producing a genuine and light atmosphere for a perfect getaway.
This delightful retreat has been conceived for our family vacation. It was fully restored with an elegant mix of traditional materials and low-key but confortable design, with all the essential commodities for a full relaxation and well-being.

Laying on the South side of the village, facing the sea you.are at a 5min walk to the beach, to the food market hall (fresh local products), grilled fish restaurants, the walkingboard on the nature reserve, and even closer to Sunday's open-air traditional food market.

In this charming retreat you can wake up, cook, dine and lounge constantly overlooking the bay. The apartment has two bedrooms ( one with a double bed and the other one with two singular beds), a bathroom and back open air laundry with washing machine and drying space.
The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, microwave, fridge and dishwasher and opens to dinning room, extending itself to the balcony.

Where you’ll be

Alvor, Faro, Portugal

Alvor is an active traditional fishing village, that gives it an authentic caracter, besides the history it emcompasses. You can manage all your vacation on foot, wandering through the weaving streets of this charming village where you can find all the necessary for residents daily lives but also the free time entertainment of small bars, waterfront eateries and summer events.
Alvor is set in a landscape of rolling hills with panoramic views into the ocean.
But that is not all! By the edge of the village you can discover the flora and fauna of Alvor’s protected natural wetlands area, and explore the bay, stretching from sand dunes beach to golden cliffs and small beach coves.

There is plenty of sports to do in the surrounding proximity from world-class golf courses to world-renowned beaches and lagoons for surfing and kitesurf, but also public tennis courts in the village as well as following the locals playing petanque.

You're also close to a private hospital, used to serve foreigners. English is a common spoken language in most local services.
