    Description

    Luxury apartment with two bedrooms and two bathrooms overlooking the 10th fairway of the Alto golf course. Completed in 2002 to a very high specification by Mowlem. It has a large (31sq metre) lounge/diner, two bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en-suite), kitchen and large balconies to the front and rear.

    Accessed by a private road, it is in a very quiet and peaceful location yet near to the attractions of the Algarve. The golf club house is 200 metres from the apartment, the beach is a 15 minute walk and Alvor and Portimao are only a 5 minute drive. Further afield the Monchique mountains, Lagos and 10 more golf courses are within a 30 minute drive.

    Guests enjoy free use of all the Country Club facilities which include a large outdoor and heated indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, sauna and gym together with bars and restaurants (both indoor and outdoor). Activity classes and children's events are also available

    The apartment

    The apartment is located close to what are universally regarded as the most beautiful beaches and coastline of the Algarve. The nearest stunning sandy beach is only 15 minutes walk away and this links via a coastal or shoreline walk (at low tide) into the extensive Vau and Praia da Rocha beaches which eventually end at the Marina and breakwater which forms the entrance to the river Arade.
    In Alvor the beach extends for 8 kilometres.

    Golf
    Alto Golf is a moderately priced British owned course designed by Sir Henry Cotton. The club house is 200 metres away. The driving range is within a 8 minute walk from the apartment and a golf school also operates from this location.

    Many alternative and excellent quality courses are within a 30 minute drive away and these include Penina, Quinta de Morgado (new), Palmares and Gramacho, Parque da Floresta, Boavista, Salgados. Within 45 minutes are the courses at Villamoura and Albufeira.

    Distances
    Both Alvor village and Portimao town are 5 minutes drive away. These locations provide access to a wide range of shops and hypermarkets. The picturesque sea front town of Lagos, the Monchique mountains, and the ancient town of Silves involve a 30 minute drive.

    The A22 motorway in the western Algarve links to the Portuguese and Spanish motorways. These extend up to Lisbon and into Spain. It is recommended that a car is hired (either at the airport or locally after arrival) especially if the area is to be properly explored and advice on this can be provided.
