The idyllic village of Alvor

Published by Yolanda Franco — 6 years ago

Hi, I'm a former Erasmus student that after studying abroad in a cold, snowy country decided that she wanted to live in a place in which there (almost every time :P) is always sun. The chosen place was Alvor, in Algarve (Portugal). Alvor is located in Portimão, a county town with a panoramic view over the bay.

Very close to one of the best beaches in the Algarve (2 minutes walking), whose white sand and calm and clear waters leave no one indifferent.

I work at the only hostel here. In my free time I surf, go to the gym (5 min by foot), take pics of the incredible views... but essentially I spend all of my free time at the beach enjoying the promotional packages to which I'm entitled, which include surf and kite surfing lessons, diving, doing car races, among many others.... :)

Alvor is a little piece of heaven on Earth. It has the most amazing views, the nicest and down to earth people u can meet, tons of bars and dinners and it's close to other beautiful regions in the Algarve.
