I moved to the Algarve in August 2015 and I teach English and Keepfit. I play tennis at the tennis club (only 10 minutes walk from the property) and swim in the sea as often as possible!
Rebecca purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Rebecca chose Torralta
This property really caught my eye for its amazing seaside location and its functionality: it is so easy to get to and it is cool in summer, and the views from the balcony (1.50m x 4.60m) are absolutely beautiful. Best location for the beach and getting to Alvor. I also rent out the studio apartment directly above this, on the top floor (10th): property n.8195505.
What makes this Apartment unique
The flat is perfectly placed for the beach but is also only a 10 minute walk from Alvor, a charming fishing village with cobbled streets and plenty of eateries and bars to choose from, especially down near the harbour at sunset. It has a great atmosphere.
100% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Really enjoyed our stay, the apartment was just right for us in size and amenities, it was great having the supermarket so close. Access to the beach, board walk and choice of restaurants was great. The bus stop was handy and easy to use transport to the towns. Loved the fact that taxi transfer to and from the airport was arranged for us
Thank you so much for your great review! I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay in the flat and all the local amenities. I’d always recommend using the transfer company and it was a pleasure to arrange it for you: it just makes your holiday go so much smoother! I’d be delighted if you’d like to come back and stay again - just let me know! Best wishes, Rebecca
Great location for beach lovers
Rebecca was very easy to deal with and answered all emails and texts very promptly. Apartment is situated really close to the beach and the balcony looks onto the beach sideways, which was very pretty. The studio apartment was spotlessly clean and kitted out with everything we needed for our stay. It is in an older building and is a bit dated. Some new bed covers and blinds would really improve first impression of the apartment but I would have no hesitation staying again or recommending to others. The supermarket right next door is very handy although it is more expensive than the Intermarche in town. Getting into the town was a 10 minute walk and proximity to the beach was a big selling point for us. Rebecca is a great host.
Thanks very much for a great review Anne Marie! It was great to meet you and Peta, and I’m glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks also for your comments for improvements: first impressions do matter! I hope to see you again, Rebecca
Great Apartment in a Lovely location.
A wonderful Apartment in a great location.
The lovely and helpful Rebbecca who owned the apartment was there to greet us and show us around . A supermarket was just a stones throw away as was a bus stop to Portimao and Praia da Rocha.
The Beautiful beach is a few minutes away and if you walk along the board walk running parallel to the beach you come to Alvor it's self. A picturesque little fishing village with plenty of nice restaurants. You can book boat trips from Alvor and a ferry to Lagos.
Both had a really great time.
Ian and Maureen.
Thank you so much Ian and Maureen! It was very nice to meet you and I'm so glad you had such a nice stay! I look forward to a return visit when you have time and thank you so much for booking with me! Rebecca
Highly recommended accommodation. Wonderful apartment and location - even better than the pictures. Rebecca was a great host - extremely friendly and helpful. Check in was very smooth and simple and Rebecca was very nice to communicate with. When we arrived she took time to show us everything in the flat and gave us advice on places to visit around. The flat was spacious and very clean (everything is new), with full-equipped kitchen and terrace with great views. And just minute walk from the ocean. Importantly, if you are driving, it has big private parking. We had a fantastic time in this apartment - wish we'd stayed longer. Would stay here again.
Thank you so much Serge and Yulia! It was great to meet you both and I'm glad you had such a wonderful stay in my flat and in Alvor. I would be delighted if you'd like to come back and stay again: next time come for longer!! Spasibo! Rebecca

Thank you so much Iveta! It was a real pleasure to meet you and I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in my flat! Hope to see you again soon!
Lovely apartment for a winter break
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Alvor in Rebecca's apartment. We spent some time sitting on the balcony with its view of the beach almost every day, and on the days when it was a bit too cold we kept warm inside with the efficient halogen heater. The apartment now has a television and wifi, which were greatly appreciated. Rebecca is very helpful and friendly and lives only a short distance away so she's easy to contact if help is needed.
Thank you so much Sheila! It was great to meet you and have you stay in my flat and I'm glad you got some really sunny days and were able to make the most of the balcony! I hope you'll return very soon!
Situated on the 9th floor of this beachside block, just 50 metres from the golden sands of Alvor beach, the flat has beautiful views of the sea and rocks at the beach of Praia dos Tres Irmãos . Swimming, windsurfing and kitesurfing are some of the watersports available. A regular bus service goes to Alvor (3 mins) or to the nearest big town Portimao (20 mins) It is only a 10 minute walk to Alvor, a beautiful fishing village with cobbled streets filled with bars and restaurants, European, Asian and authentic Portuguese, and with a marina and harbour that has stunning views and plenty of places to sit and have a drink while watching the glorious sunsets. There is an open-air market every Sunday morning down at the marina and there are 2 large supermarkets in the village. A small supermarket selling most staples is situated underneath the block as is a hairdresser and a wellness centre, a bar, a bakery and a newsagents. There are plenty of opportunities for golf, both in Alvor and in the surrounding area. Daytrips can easily be arranged to Cabo Sao Vincente (Cape San Vincent), the most south-westernly point in Europe, Sagres, home of the famous lager, or to the medieval walled town of Silves, or further afield to the mountains of Monchique. The choices are vast!
