Why Bernadine Grogan chose Alporchinhos
We fell in love with our apartment when we went down to the beach bar and had a cold beer, fresh sardines and homemade bread. We looked out at the sea and thought "yes this is heaven"!
What makes this Apartment unique
We have taken out the baths in both bathrooms and installed brand new wet-rooms. Our apartment, to the rear has a long patch of grass for the kids to play on, while you sit on the veranda.

A great apartment in a lovely location.
This was our fourth stay in Areias de Porches, but first time in this apartment overlooking the tennis court. We had all we needed and the wet rooms were a great added bonus. Only a short walk down to the beach and the always friendly 'Lord's Bar'. We always hire a car, but if you're happy to stay local then everything you need is in walking distance.
Bernadine was in touch as soon as we booked and was only an email or what's app message away if needed.
All this made for another lovely holiday in this relaxed resort.
we stayed in this lovely apartment in June firstly its spotless and has a fantastic wet room and separate bathroom, and has everything you need. The location is fantastic for the beach which is very close about 10 min walk there are 2 beaches near first beach on the left has all the sun loungers and activities and the second beach which you can go through a tunnel to get to is much quitter but larger.
If you didn't want to go down the pool is just around the corner and is very quiet as well. There are also sun loungers at the back of the patio which we used on the grass when we came back up from the beach as it gets sun from early morning till about 8 I think.
We did have an issue with the safe and the manager was around within half an hour of us asking questions and had it sorted pretty quickly. The walk down to the town is about 40 mins and about 20 to the local supermarket which has everything - but its a lovely walk in the evening and we got a taxi back for 5 euro. There are loads of restaurant's down there we tried a good few and had no complaints. Now if you wanted to stay local there is an English bar near but across the road from it are 2 lovely restaurants there ( also a small supermarket) which has everything and is good value ) - have the Cataplana its fab. I would def go back - also they arrange for a pick up and drop back to the airport which was great.
we really liked this place.
O apartamento é fantástico, fica num local muito calmo e tranquilo e tem todas as comodidades necessárias para se passarem umas óptimas férias. Gostei muito e recomendo-o sem dúvida alguma. Agradeço também à D. Bernadine por ter sido bastante prestável.
Thank you Susana. Delighted you enjoyed our apartment. Keep in touch. Bernadine.
