Mike and I found a brill deal to the Algarve, we had a self-catering apartment in the sleepy fishing village of Alvor. I have been interested in Portuguese tiling and was looking forward to taking lots of's a look at my finds of the week!

A view from our back balcony, looking out on to the complex

The resort we walked through on the way to the beach...I love the colours of the flowers, especially against the white washed buildings. That turquoise is just delicious too!!

A very pretty pairing

need to take the exposure down on this a bit but that's a lot of pretty patterns!!!

close up of the tiling on the bench...'s just gorgeous!

Tiling, tiling...


A beautiful roadside palm tree

The light in our apartment - clever design!

Beautiful facade
and interesting composition...

More gorgeous tiling
And the Mourish styling of the complex
