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

Simon Chapman purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Simon Chapman chose Loule region

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.

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.

Another amazing stay and our first as a family!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I have stayed in this apartment on a few occasions now and have always been delighted. This year we decided to return with our 9 month old daughter and had a fantastic holiday. The apartment is very modern and is always clean & tidy and extremely well equipped. It really does feel like a home from home! If you are traveling with young children there is a comfy high chair and travel cot which were both set up for us on arrival. The air conditioning, high speed broadband and flat screen TV's really do set this apart from other apartments we have stayed in. The large outside area is great for BBQ's, dining or just relaxing in the sun. The swimming pools are easily accessible from this ground floor apartment but just far enough away to ensure this end location is a little more quiet and peaceful.The complex has a variety of excellent restaurants which are all in walking distance, the closest being Wildfire Smokehouse & Grill which is within meters of the apartment and server fantastic steaks! I would highly recommend the boneless beef ribs to start!

Simon and Caroline have a detailed welcome pack and information booklet to help you get the most out of your stay and ensure you have a great time. Its clear that they love to share the joys of Vila Sol with all of their guests which is backed up by all of the five star reviews.

Thank you for making this such a nice stay and we look forward to coming back in the near future.

Very comfortable spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

Spent a few days at this great apartment (our third visit). The rooms are large and the layout superb. Lovely views of the landscaped gardens from the lounge and bedrooms. It is set in a quiet but convenient location - handy for the swimming pools and several excellent restaurants close by - particularly Wildfire steak restaurant - literally a few yards from the door and well worth a visit. The amenable owners really want you to have a good time. We will be back!

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.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

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.
