About Mrs J Lidsey

We are a married couple with two teenage boys.

We have been going to the Old Village since our youngest was 18 months old, he is now 22.

We bought our first property about 10 years ago, then all of our friends wanted to come with us, I soon got fed up with having a apartment full of people, so we bought another property, this is where our friends stay when they come with us. We rent out both properties they have proven very popular.

The Old Village is a prime location for families of people who play golf, or not as the case maybe, I have yet to meet someone who doesn't like there.

You have to go a long way to find people who are more friendly and helpful.

Mrs J Lidsey purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Mrs J Lidsey chose Vilamoura

We bought our first apartment at the Old Village as it was a very pretty place, the local beaches are lovely, and if wanted, there are also water parks nearby.

The Marina is a place where you see how the other half live.

There are many very good restaurants around the Marina, behind the Tivoli Hotel is a Puro Beach and Puro Beach Restaurant which is very good.

The beaches are all of golden sand they all have restaurants.

What makes this apartment unique

There are three pools on the Old Village, each pool has a bar where you can buy refreshments and sandwiches, apart from the pool areas there are plenty of eating places from a la carte to the more cafe like restaurants.

The Old Village is based on an Italian Piazza, the buildings are pastel coloured and the whole area is very pretty.

The Portuguese are very friendly people and they love children.
