About Simon Chapman

Hello, My name is Simon Chapman and together with my wife Caroline, have owned the apartment for over 10 years. We run a successful Electrical and Security firm in the UK employing 30 people. I live with Caroline, in a village called Anslow, just outside Burton on Trent. Caroline and I try to visit Vila Sol at least six times a year to ensure that the apartment meets our exacting standards. We really enjoy our time there, finding it very relaxing. (I do get told off occasionally for still working with my laptop!). We are sure that you will enjoy your stay. We have guests returning for their 10th year with us, which we believe to be our best advert.

Simon Chapman purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Simon Chapman chose Vilamoura

We looked at various properties in the Vilamoura area. The calmness of Vila Sol and the finish of all the apartments was head and shoulder above the other properties we looked at.

The apartment had been furnished by a couple looking to spend considerable there. Unfortunately their circumstances changed which is why the apartment came onto the market.

We were extremely fortunate to come across this wonderful apartment and really enjoy our time here.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the fact that we can reach Portugal within such a short time from the UK. We find the locals extremely friendly and feel very safe.

Our apartment benefits from being south facing, at the quiet end of the complex, yet less than one minutes walk from the pools. We are close to the supermarket and the pub! There are many restaurants within easy walking distance from the apartment. There is also a shop and delicatessen.

Being a duplex (with the bedrooms on the second floor)

it is at a big advantage over apartments on higher floors.

We are able to shut the patio doors and walk to the pools. If you stay in a 1st or 2nd floor apartment, you have to walk all the way round the whole block to access the pools.

Excellent apartment in fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this apartment several times and are already looking in to going back. This time we took elderly parents along and they too found it ideal. It is located with easy access to the central garden and pools area, but far enough away not to make noise and passers by an issue. Many local restaurants nearby, some of whom will collect/return you from Vila Sol resort. The specification is as good as ever and the owners have recently updated the kitchen units. The place is very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Have no hesitation in recommending for any age group! Thanks for a great stay.

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Excellent fully equipped apartment, everything you could wish for when planning an holiday. Even two bottles of wine left by the owners as a welcome present. Only one minor complaint was that the plastic patio chairs where uncomfortable to sit on even with the padded covers on. Overall would not hesitate to use again. Cheers

Owner's Response: Thank you Roy, for taking the trouble to write a review. We always value feedback and take on board any suggestions. Primarily, the chairs are provided for sitting whilst at the table. We do recognise that these style of garden furniture are not always the most comfortable but they make an excellent compromise when considering they are outdoor all summer. We will investigate new cushions to see if this could help. We look forward to welcoming you back to Vila Sol in the near future. Kind regards Simon & Caroline

Fantastic apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this apartment twice and will definitely book again!

Not far from Faro airport the property is located in an exclusive development with 3 adult pools, 2 children's pools and a jacuzzi! You can even buy a beer, soft drink, ice cream or hot food from the on site facilities.

There are many good restaurants very close by coupled with a convenience store.

The beach, Vilamoura, Vilamoura Marina, Loule, Zoo marine, Aqua show and many great golf courses are all within in easy reach.

Faro has a designer village which is worth a visit, Loule has a similar development under construction beside the new IKEA store.

You won't be disappointed!

Great location, lovely property with lots of entertaining space.

  • 5 of 5

As you arrive you will wonder how much room there really is - once you're through the front door you will see there's plenty on two floors.

Both ensuite bedrooms are comfortable with plenty of space and wardrobe hanging as well as drawers.

Living room and kitchen layout works well with all of the equipment you're likely to need. You can open up the doors onto the patio which means you end up with lots of space to relax, eat and enjoy your holiday.

Plenty of bars and places to eat within easy walking distance - and all those we ate at offered varied menus and felt like good value. There's a marina a short drive away (it is walkable, 40 mins?) which is worth a visit - again lots of food and drink choices in that area.

Would be happy to stay in this apartment again - especially as it is so convenient for the airport.
