About Pauline McGovern

My wife and I are two professionals. We are both in full time employment in Ireland. We have three children, one is a doctor and the other two are university students.

We visited Vilamoura, at first, on a holiday and really fell for the wonderful range of leisure facilities, restaurants and bars in this resort. We were also impressed by the cleanliness and care and attention which is evident throughout Vilamoura. The apartment itself is so convenient to everything that transport is unnecessary.

Pauline McGovern purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Pauline McGovern chose Loule region

The Vilamoura resort attracts a very nice clientele, there is none of the lager-loutish element which is so evident in many other resorts. It has a vast range of facilities and activities to offer all age groups ranging from golf to watersports.

The weather is beautiful--not extremely hot and still sunshine everyday. English is very widely spoken which is a bonus as we are not fluent Portuguese speakers although we do try to use Portuguese, as a mark of respect to our hosts.

What makes this apartment unique

We particularly enjoy strolling along the large marina every evening. Our property is adjacent to the Marina. The marina is continuously full of yachts and cruisers of all descriptions. It has shops, restaurants, bars, everything! We also love the beach, the golf, the weather and the people who are so obliging, helpful and welcoming.

Great apartment, fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was truely amazing. It was exceptionally equipped with everything you need, a real home from home. Had a hairdryer which i don,t think was mentioned, this was a real bonus. Even thought the balcony looks over the car park this was not an issue as most of time was spent at the lovely pool which was a nice size, had plenty of beds and shaded areas. With small supermarket attached to the apartment block and only a few minutes walk to the marina this was truely amazing.

Pauline was easy to deal with and all queries were dealt with promply.

Perfect Apartment for Vilamoura

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Vilamoura for the last 6 years and I always try to stay close to the marina. This apartment is by far my favorite. Standard of finish and fittings in the apartment was very high. Rooms are very spacious and there is a huge balcony. The pictures don't do it justice.. Its about 50 yards from the marina but there is no noise at all from the marina even on the balcony as its at the opposite side. I would recommend it for either adults or a family. Pool was lovely too. I would very much recommend the apartment. Thank you very much Pauline.

Fantastic apartment in a brilliant location!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a short break at this fantastic apartment. The photos don't do it justice. The whole experience from initial enquiry to obtaining our damage deposit back was hassle free and Pauline was quick to respond to all our queries and questions.

The apartment is in a great location, a stones throw from the marina and its many bars and restaurants.

The pool area was great for relaxing and sunbathing. Sun beds were always available.

All in all the apartment and complex offers a great value getaway, with luxurious surroundings and quality fixtures and fittings.

We hope to return again soon.

Thank you once again Pauline!

Car: not necessary


The wonderful Falesia beach is 5 mins walk from the complex and contains activities for all the family, including jet-skiing, surfing, para-gliding, or simply lounging in the sun. There are numerous cruises from the Marina to encompass the most diverse interests, such as fishing, sightseeing, diving etc.


Faro airport is an easy 25 minute drive along the N125 or via the IP1 motorway. The local town of Loule (a beautiful market town) is about 10 Km north of Vilamoura. The popular tourist town of Albufeira is approximately 30 minutes west along the N125.

Car hire is not necessary as the apartment is convenient to all amenities without any long, energy sapping walks in the Mediterranean sun. Taxi's are easily and cheaply acquired for trips to the golf courses which are only a few minutes away.


If you do happen to have a car(or even hire one for a day), there are endless places of interest within easy reach of Vilamoura. You could travel east to the historic town of Tavira (47kms) and further on to the Spanish border (70Kms) and Seville. Even Lisbon (240Kms), the capital is accessible for a day's outing, as the roads are fantastic.

Further Details:

Vilamoura is a purpose built resort dominated by an impressive marina that has scores of quality restaurants, hotels and shops. Supermarkets and banks are also easily accessed in Vilamoura.

Golf academies are in abundance within easy reach by taxi and hypermarkets (giant shopping markets) are within a half hours drive.
