The spacious apartment has cool terracotta floors throughout, the lounge with it's high pitched ceiling and open fire has a TV and DVD while the large kitchen is fully equipped with cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, w/machine and tumble dryer. Master bedroom is a double with en-suite plus 2 bedrooms with twin single beds with a double sofa bed in the lounge.

At the village entrance is the brand new shopping area with supermarket, Oscars bar, and restaurants. The 5 * Vila Sol Hotel, Spa, Golf course, tennis centre are also on the resort. Lovely Vilamoura marina is 5 min. by car and Quinto do Lago/Vale do Lobo, with their beautiful beaches and golf courses are only a few minutes away.

Vila Sol Resort: The apartment is situated within the beautifully landscaped village area, with it's rolling manicured lawns, flowering borders, palms and umbrella pines.

You can relax around the 3 main pools, 2 children's pools and jacuzzi and enjoy drinks and a meal from the cafe/bar area. The brand new spa and fitness centre with all the latest equipment is situated at entrance to the village.

Minutes away is the excellent golf course and clubhouse adjacent to the brand new 5 star Vila Sol hotel with all it's amenities including pools, tennis centre, bars and lakeside restaurants with views across the golf course.

Vilamoura: Vilamoura is a couple of minutes drive from the apartment and is totally geared to your holiday enjoyment. Here you can participate in or watch almost any sport you wish or simply relax at one of Europe's largest and most exciting marina's. There are year round activities such as amateur and professional golf tournaments, international sailing regattas, shark and marlin fishing, tennis and international bowls competitions. There is even an equestrian centre which hosts an annual international show jumping festival !! But unquestionably the hub of Vilamoura is the beautiful marina, which is surrounded by superb shops, affordable local and international restaurants and quayside cafes, banks, supermarkets, a cinema, day and night bars and a jazz club. You can also charter a boat and cruise along the coast, or sunbathe on the beautiful sandy beaches situated either side of the marina entrance. These blue flag beaches are recognised as amongst the cleanest in the world.

Local weather: The Algarve boasts over 300 days of sun per annum and even on the hottest day a gentle sea breeze can make the temperatures bearable. The temperate climate means that the warm sun can be enjoyed year round, ideal for an early or late break. With miles of sandy beaches, a myriad of water sports, numerous excellent golf courses, water parks, a new shopping mall, traditional street markets, casinos, a marina surrounded by fashionable shops and restaurants, superb fish restaurants serving everything from freshly caught sea bass to sardines and washed down with some chilled local wine, all in the sunniest climate in Europe this could be the perfect location.

Great Apartment/Resort

  • 5 of 5

We thought we'd just say we had a truly fab time in your apartment. It lived up to our expectations and had all the usual equipement you need including Cable TV (bonus for John)! It was spacious and well appointed and was only a 5 minute walk from the supermarket which i have to say is a real plus. The pool area deserves special mention as it was secured and had loads of area for the kids to play in safety as well as three pools to choose from.

Thanks Amanda for making our arangements seems effortless, we certainly will recomend your apartment and hope to come back ourselves soon.

Best wishes

Pauline and John

We had a fantastic weeks holiday in your beautiful apartment. The apartment is spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The balcony, overlooking the pools and gardens was very impressive, lovely to have sun in the morning and shade later on. We loved the resort and the location, everything was easy to get to.

We would not hesitate to recommend to friends and am sure we'll visit again. Thanks also for being so helpful and flexible with all our arrangements.

Nearest Airport : Faro at 60 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : at 100 Metres Nearest Restaurant : at 100 Kilometres Nearest Beach : at 6 Kilometres Car: recommended

The Village is part of the 5 star Vila Sol Golf Resort & Spa situated within the 'Golden Triangle' of Quinta Do Lago, Vale Do Lobo and Vilamoura and is just 20 mins from Faro Int'l airport. The town of Quartieira with it's beach side restaurants, bars and famous fish market is only a couple of minutes drive as is Vilamoura Marina. The beautiful Marina has more than it's fair share of superb restaurants and bars to suit every taste. About 15 min. further west is the lively Albufeira resort which is definitely worth a visit for a fun day/night out. All along the coast are superb sandy beaches and quiet coves to explore. You are spoilt for choice. Apart from the marvellous golf and tennis facilities, there are water sports, cruises, sailing, fishing, horse riding, etc., all available locally and the kids will love the water parks, one of which is within walking distance! For further details or information please contact us.

Other Activities: Fabulous selection of restaurants in nearby Vilamoura Marina

Golf: The Algarve is home to some fabulous golf courses and the apartment is adjacent to the Vila Sol course, a few minutes walk from the clubhouse. This superb course has twice hosted the Portuguese Open as well as the Lancome Trophy and Johnnie Walker Classic. It has challenging undulating holes which meander through an old pine forest, with water and fast greens to negotiate. A lovely clubhouse overlooks the 18th green, where you can enjoy a well earned drink and meal ! Within a few minutes drive are the Vilamoura courses, featuring The Old Course, Pinhal, Laguna, Millenium and the latest addition The Victoria, designed by Arnold Palmer. Again, these are all excellent courses with great facilities. Probably some of the most famous courses in the area lie about 10 -15 min. east of the apartment. These are The Royal and Ocean at Vale do Lobo, Quinta North and South at Quinta do Lago and also Pinheiros Altos and the famous San Lorenzo course. There are even more courses further East and West including Henry Cotton's favourite 'Penina' near Alvor. This really is a golfer's paradise.
