About the Owner

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 9th year with us, which we believe to be our best advert.

Another Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is my third stay in this apartment and I've already booked for next year. The apartment is in a great location and very well equipped. The apartment is very well maintained and clean. The apartment is air conditioned and came in handy with soaring temperatures in the heat wave in Portugal this year. I would highly recommend this apartment for a stay in Vila Sol. Simon is very helpful and deals with any queries immediately. Looking forward to our next trip already.

We stayed in Simon's apartment for 2 weeks in August and were extremely pleased on our arrival. The apartment looked lovely and was amazingly clean. There is wifi and the ensuite and tv's in both bedrooms were definetly an advantage. The children loved the jacuzzi bath! The kitchen has everything you could need. The 3 pools are a few seconds walk away and are fabulous, always loungers available and the pool bar has a happy hour 4-7pm. The restaurant 'Wildfire' across the road is lovely and certainly child friendly with an area for children to watch films while you eat. Oscars is a sports bar/restaurant and is 2 minutes walk away and has food for adults and children and also has children's entertainment 3 nights a week. Beaches and many lovely restaurants all within a short driving distance. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at this apartment again. Thanks Simon!

Fantastic holiday again

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Vila Sol many times in different apartments and was not disappointed by this one. It was spotlessly clean on arrival and everything you would need is there. Simon and his wife even left 2 bottles of wine which was a lovely touch. I loved the jacuzzi and so did my two children! The children also loved having their own ein-suite and television in their room, it certainly was home from home. We were given lots of information of different Restaurants and places to go before our arrival, and the information pack In the apartment was excellent. Air conditioning again superb and most definitely needed after a long day In the sun. Oscars bar has also improved from last year, food was good and so was the service. I will certainly be recommending this apartment to friends and family. Thanks again for letting us stay, I'm sure we will be back in the future.

Fantastic Holiday second visit

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this apartment on the site and yet again it didn't disappoint. Previous years we have stayed in other apartments on site but chose this one again for many reasons. The apartment is very clean and the air conditioning is fantastic. The apartment is well maintained and very comfortable it has the added bonus of wifi (fast speed) which very few have on site. Please do not be put off by the location of this apartment as you are very close to the shops/deli france/pubs and restaurants on site and although you are next to an entrance gate we didn't see one person in our entire stay come through the gate. The site itself is very child friendly and safe with 3 pools to lounge around. Plenty of space for the kids to run around and play and we always got a sun bed around the main pool. This is the first year we have been in July and it was busier (fab for our daughter more children to play with) previous years we have stayed in June quieter and more sedate. The apartment has TV's in the living room and 2 bedrooms and all have a high selection, Sky Sport/Sky Movies. I would highly recommend a stay in this apartment the owner advised us of some fab restaurants to try locally and the information pack is very informative. Thank you Simon and Caroline

Tremendous, yet again!

  • 5 of 5

Can't remember how many times we have stayed now, but yet again it was 1st class. The apartment is brilliant and has everything you could possibly need while on holiday.

Vila Sol was a little quiet in the 1st week, but then got busier in the 2nd week. Loads of kids of varying ages for our kids to play with football, manhunt & alsorts of stuff going in. All the parents looking out for each others kids makes for a great holiday. Still loads of sunbeds available round all the pools too!

Highly recommend Simon & Caroline's place.

From the Owner

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.

From the Owner

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.
