Golf Information: This 3 bedroom apartment is ideal for golfers. Within a ten minute drive there are six championship golf courses.

The Old course being one of the first built in the Algarve in 1976.The closest course to the apartment is the Pinhal course two minutes to the first tee, a beautiful course lined by pine trees(the course can be seen from the roof terrace) and costs about 55 Euro per round. The Laguna course is fairly new and is full of water hazards just waiting for your tee shots. The Millennium course is varied with some tight holes and some more open allowing you to be more aggressive with your shots. The Victoria is expensive(110 Euro) but is truly a championship course. Within 40 minutes there are more than ten other courses to play.

The Old Village : The Old Village with its pedestrianized cobbled streets and beautifully maintained gardens, walkways and pools is truly enchanting, and we believe our apartment provides the perfect base for a wonderful holiday experience. The surrounding area is quiet and peaceful, yet is within easy reach of the marina, beach and all amenities.

There are three beautiful swimming pools within the complex for the exclusive use of owners and guests, and a children's play area.

Why Sheelagh Rigby chose Loule region

We came across the Old Village by accident whilst staying in Vilamoura and instantly fell in love with the place! We decided it was the perfect location for family holidays, and came home 3 days later having bought our apartment. We viewed several on the complex but this one stood out, because of it's cool, spacious interior, convenient location and the stunning views from the roof terrace.

What makes this apartment unique

Amazing roof terrace! And everything you need on your doorstep, including great restaurants and bars, pools and supermarket.

Lovely apartment in a great place with fantastic views on roof terrace

  • 5 of 5

We really liked this property and the olde village is great too. Maybe having the essentials there would improve things like salt, pepper, tea towels, beach towels and the front door really needs fixing but we'd still definitely stay there again as it's ideal for us in a great central location and only a walk away from the marina during day and taxi at night. Third time in vilamoura we love it!! The roof terrace has great views and the olde village a fab complex with three pools and bars and restaurants. Would recommend to anyone.

Beautiful apartment : stunning roof top views

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment, spacious: over 3 floors. Fantastic views from the roof terrace. Plenty of space there for sunbathing and dinning with a charcoal BBQ.

Accommodation is clean, homely and comfortable, everything one would need: including a dishwasher and washing machine.

The village is beautiful too:, amazing buildings, stunning flowers and lots of places to eat and drink and has a bakery and supermarket.

The Marina and beach a short walk away.

Favourite place!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location right in the centre of the beautiful Old Village, close to supermarket and several restaurants. Within a 10-15 minute walk to marina (it's a lovely walk!). Stayed in Old Village seven times; this apartment 5 times and returning again this year- everything you need provided in the apartment and it is very clean and reasonably up to date. The owner, Sheelagh, is lovely and very helpful. I would definitely recommend it to anyone! It's starting to becoming an annual trip for me..! :)

Lovely apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is close to the minimarket, restaurants, bars and pools yet is also quiet. Roof terrace is very good with lovely views towards the marina. Everything you need is provided in the apartment.

We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this apartment and the Old Village.

Spacious apartment at the heart of the Old Village

  • 4 of 5

We arrived after office hours and were impressed with the simple arrangements to access the property, with a printout of our name and the telephone number of security clearly displayed in the window of the OV office which was 50m from the drop off point and only 100m from the property. Security took us right to the property and made sure everything was ok and we had instructions to pop along to the OV office in the morning, where we then arranged for a swipe card to access the pools, etc.

The resort is beautifully maintained with lovely plants and flowers and is very clean. It is about 20 minutes walk from the marina and about 30 minutes to Falesia beach, although you can catch a land train which even runs out of season and costs 4 euros for one journey and 6 euros to use it all day.

The property is spacious and reasonably up to date, with comfortable furniture and a brilliant roof terrace, it is worth noting that nothing is provided in the kitchen so you will need washing powder, liquid, etc and all condiments and basic cooking ingredients. There is a small supermarket on site open until 8 pm, if you arrive later, beware, the only open shop we could find was a local garage.

We had a few problems with the property, the boiler which provides hot water downstairs stopped working but after reporting this to the OV office, someone came and fixed it in a couple of hours and replaced a number of light bulbs that were not working.

For the first half of the week we did not have any neighbours but for the last couple of days someone was staying in the property downstairs and we noticed how readily sound travels from one property to the next.

Would i come again? Yes, Villamoura is surprisingly green and open and you can access open and undeveloped beaches, the Old Village resort is lovely although in season we were warned it is very busy and noisy with children, but you do have to be prepared to walk to shops, marina, etc.
