Club Alvorferias

It’s fun for all the family at the Club Alvorferias Apartments. The style is modern, the location is convenient, and there’s plenty going on to keep everyone happy. There’s a nice big pool surrounded by lush gardens, and tennis courts too. For the kids, there’s a pool, outdoor play area, kids’ club and games room with arcades and pool tables. A handy supermarket can be found on-site, and come the evening, there’s karaoke, quizzes and live entertainment. The beach is less than a kilometre away, but they lay on a shuttle bus if you just can’t get there quick enough. It’s only a 15-minute walk to Alvor too.

Overview of Alvor

With a dramatic, rocky landscape, cobbled streets and golden-sand beaches, the old-world charm of Alvor is engaging, picturesque, and full of energy. As a working fishing village, the seafood is fresh and tasty, and there are plenty of restaurants to discover. If you’re staying at the Club Alvorferias Apartments, you’re but a leisurely boardwalk stroll from many of the best. The other delights of the Algarve are easy to reach from here too, so you’ve got all the big draws of any holiday to Portugal – the culture, nightlife, glorious stretches of sand – just up the road if you want them.

Things to do in Alvor

Fishing is a way of life in Alvor, and in these parts that means sardines. There’s even a 10-day Sardine Festival in Portimaoá, held in August, which includes a parade along the riverfront, live fado, pop, and rock music, along with cooking demos and lots and lots of lovely eating. If you find yourself here in June, there’s the Saints Parade, which is a lot of fun. There’s wine, dancing, and of course, sardines. Day-to-day there’s a lot going on down at Torralta Beach, and Slide and Splash Waterpark is only a 25-minute drive away. Whether you’re here to bask on the beach, fill your boots at the seafood buffet, or go off and explore the rest of the Algarve, Alvor is a beautiful place to be. And the family-centric Club Alvorferias hotel puts you in a handy spot to enjoy it all.

Resort Summary

A well-known historical area among the Portuguese people, Alvor is where one of the country’s most illustrious leaders King Joao II died in 1495. That period in time is depicted in some of the remains of the area such as the 16th century Matriz de Alvor church, with its beautiful Manueline Gothic arches and lavishly detailed altar, though much of it was rebuilt in the 18th century in a Rococo style.

While the charming properties and gorgeous cobbled streets of the old village are the main feature of this quaint area, on the main street you’ll find modern bars and restaurants where you can look down right onto the harbour, which sits on the Alvor River’s lagoon.
