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.

Guest access

We will meet you anywhere in Alvor and walk you to our place. If you're coming by car, there is a park 2min. from the house by the fishermen's workshops. You just have to follow the directions to the beach, but we will give further detailed information at your arrival.

Nice apartment close to all bars, restaurants, shops and the lovely Alvor beach. A bit noisy at times but that's to be expected in a holiday town. Dulce was nice and attentive. Cleaning half way through our stay of 7 nights was a nice touch . Thanks Dulce

Nice clean and light flat, well equipped kitchen! Great contact and support from Dulce! Fantastic beach within walking distance and good restaurants! Very touristic area. A temporary tivolli outside the flat made it loud and not so cosy when trying to use the balcony in the evenings.

Pretty house overlooking a small harbour, within walking distance of the beach. Everything as advertised. Quite functional and comfortable. Dulce kindly waited for our arrival on a late train and made us feel at home. She was also very prompt and helpful in her responses. We enjoyed exploring nearby beaches and rented a car for one day only. A nice stay!

We had a very nice stay at Dulce's place in Alvor. The apartment was perfect for our group of 3 and we especially appreciated the kitchen which had everything we needed. The location was lively and just steps from shops, restaurants, bars etc. For our group, it was a great location for us to explore the beaches both in Alvor (walking distance) and Lagos (short drive) during our stay. Would definitely stay again and recommend to other guests!

The apartment is cosy and clean. The supermarket, restaurant and bars are nearby and you can go there by foot. You have a nice view on the small harbor of Alvor from the apartment. The wonderful beach is a 10minute walk away. It was always easy to communicate with Dulce. We enjoyed our stay in the apartment very much.
