About Lesley Barnes

Julian and I are in our 40's now, we have spent a lifetime carefully renovating property both in the UK and abroad. We believe that you work hard all year and when you travel, it should be made as relaxing as possible. We bought 2 properties in our most favourite places in the world, Portugal and the Lake District National Park.

They have both been lovingly cared for over the years and all our guests have been more than happy with their choice of holiday, we hope you will be too. Location is important to everyone, we feel we have managed to capture the beauty of the local area and yet you are not tucked away without all the creature comforts of local shops, restaurants, bars, beaches & local attractions. Any questions, just call us, we are more than happy to help anytime.

Lesley Barnes purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Lesley Barnes chose Loule region

Great place, superb location, short flight, good flight options, 20 minute transfer from the airport, friendly people, close to everything, just a lovely place to take a break. Recently undergone a facelift May 2013 making it feel very modern and light.

Very popular beach is situated behind the Trivoli hotel in Vilamoura, superb facilities. Puro beach offers a great setting for everyone .

What makes this apartment unique

We chose this destination to buy because of its Portuguese charm, it is a great place to explore and is so close to all facilities, you can walk to the beach or stay round the pool. There are lots of very traditional places to eat within walking distance of the apartment or you can stroll to the harbour and take in the restaurants there. There is a supermarket practically 5 minutes walk away from the apartment, this makes life very easy if you have children and your on a budget. The pool area is second to none and the owners take pride with the surrounding gardens. The bar is brilliant, very friendly people, superb facilities for adults and children. We have internet in the apartment, but it is also available in the on site bar area and pool, just ask at the bar.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for allowing us to use your apartment. It truly was a tremendous week and I think accommodation is very important whilst on holiday. We treated it like our own while there, with the greatest respect for it also. It was a pleasure to deal with you and you will hear from us again for next year. Kindest regards, Moira Mahoney 29/09/2014

The apartment was very clean and tidy, well furnished with all of the day to day things you need. The balcony was a real bonus - a sun trap. The location was great and the use of the pool meant you could relax. It was also a pleasure dealing with the owners from initial enquiry to return of the deposit.


Just wanted to say thanks again for letting us rent your lovely apartment - we had such a wonderful holiday I'm already looking for flights for our next trip - possibly October ;) Wonderful place, so relaxed, such friendly people and the weather was glorious! It hit 90 on one day!

Many thanks


‘We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the accommodation to be of the highest order. I would have no hesitation in using it again in the future or in recommending it to friends and family’

'Nice resort with friendly people, definitely would go again’

'Just got back from our brilliant holiday in Portugal. Your apartment is fantastic we didnt want to come home, the weather was scorching hot, spent a lot of the the time on the beach totaly loved it. Hopefully we will book with you again later in the year'. Babs & Moss

'Just a note to say what a brilliant apartment you have , it was a true home for home especially the sky tv. We had a great holiday and will definately book again

We are currently staying at this apartment, myself, husband and 2 teenage boys.

We have been here a week of 2 wks holiday and are having a great time.

The apartment is lovely. All the equipment you need for a great holiday are here. Hairdryer, iron and board, washing machine, all crockery and cutlery, the list goes on. My husband and boys are over the moon that there is even sky sports as there football mad!!

Lovely pool area across the road at the honorio apartments which is exclusive with an entry card. Not loads of sunbeds but we are happy laying on the grass.

The supermarket and a few restaurants are a few minutes walk. Quartaria is a further 10 minutes where there are lots of shops and restaurants. Vilamoura is about 25 minutes from the apartment with its beautiful marina and lots more restaurants and shops. We walked there and back, but taxis are always available.

Excellent communication with Lesley and Julian the owners and lovely lady Chris who does the cleaning and management of the apartment is on hand if any problems.

All in all I cannot recommend enough and will definitely be back.

Great location, great place, everything it said

  • 5 of 5

we found the apartment to be bright and airy and as per description and the owners details, in fact i would go as far to say the pictures don't do it justice, the pool area was one of the nicest Ive ever used when visiting Portugal , very clean and well maintained area, on site bar snacks are available around the pool area which we found very pleasant,locals shops are a 5 minute walk, larger shops are easily accessed with bigger supermarkets such as pingo dosh a 5 minute drive, restaurants are available on the back streets which we advise you to explore, such as La Cabana, or the local Piri Piri house, the harbour is less than a 5 minute taxi ride away, Villamoura is a luxury resort which is the main centre of activity with a huge range of shops, restaurants and designer shops including FIGO`s bar,we enjoyed strolling round, we visited a small village called Loule which is famous for its market day on Saturdays, although there is a daily market in the market hall, had a great time, weather outstanding and everything we expected and more, we would definatley return, we found Lesley and Julian ( the owners) to be extremely helpful from start to finish

A superb place to stay - definitely returning

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled to Portugal every year now for the past 10 years and have stayed in this property every year . It never fails to deliver on quality, cleanliness, value for money and most of all location. The apartment is bright and has a very lovely feel to it that makes you feel settled the minute you arrive. We have seen the owners make it look and feel like a home a way form home for years now.

Lesley & Julian are a delight to deal with, always eager to help if required. They are extremely happy to see people spending their holiday in the Golferias apartment. The balcony has the sun all day long, late into the evening, the owners have provided sun loungers and a great seating area for dining outside or reading your favorite book. There is also a BBQ on the balcony, this we have used many times and enjoyed it immensely.

The beaches are fabulous in this area , we use the one behind the tivoli hotel, but they're all beautiful. The restaurants and bars down at the harbour are amazing, easy to access by taxi for a small fee or you could walk. There are many local restaurants set within a 5 minute walk from the apartment, please explore the back streets, you will be amazed at what you will find - and cheap to dine in

The pool area is equally as fabulous and is very well maintained by the complex staff.They also have snacks available during the day and a restaurant at night - They have a very lovely bar area that is great for relaxing around . Free wifi and games to amuse the children if you have them.

We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who is traveling to this area and wants a hassle free holiday - thanks to the owners we'll be back soon

Great apartment

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a week in Lesley's apartment. It was very comfortable and well equipped and I would recommend it highly. The balcony was a real winner with us as it was spacious and private - like having an outdoor sitting room! Everything was very clean and the complex very well maintained, It was certainly great value and Lesley made everything very easy for us and was very helpful when we had queries.

The pool is located in a neighbouring complex but only a few mins walk away. It was virtually empty every time we went. The smart marina area of the town a good 40 min walk away (which I had misunderstood) but it didn't matter at all as the walk was pleasant and the beach area of Quateira only 15 -20 min walk. We will certainly return I am sure.

Beautiful Gem

  • 5 of 5

We returned from our stay last week and want to go back! It was lovely and exactly the kind of peaceful retreat we needed.

The apartment is lovely, very clean and spacious, and has a quality that we've rarely found before - little things like they they've not just got the cheapest kettle they could find - makes it obvious that the owners holiday here too.

The pool and the grounds are beautiful and very well maintained.

We hired a car as we love exploring but there's a lot of facilities locally. We did walk down to the Marina most evenings as it's a nice 15 minutes stroll but there's always the local friendly taxis.

Overall a lovely stay and we'd happily recommend it.
