Best Self-Catering Accommodation in Alvor (2024)

accommodation in alvor

My first holiday in the Algarve was spent in Alvor so I have very fond memories of the place. Alvor is ideal for a relaxing beach holiday, less hectic than many of the other resort towns in the Algarve, but plenty of good restaurants, cafés and bars, a pleasant riverside promenade and a vast sandy beach. It is a favourite with families during the summer season and this is why self-catering accommodation in Alvor is such  a popular option.

If you are considering a holiday to Alvor during the summer season our advice is to book accommodation as soon as possible as the best places to stay in Alvor will sell out quickly. I’ve put together our picks of  the best Alvor apartments to help you plan your ideal Alvor holiday.
