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 Vilamoura

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"This apartment is totally convenient for those who will not have access to a car whilst still providing cool underground parking for those who do have one."

Great apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a repeat visit to 1.20 Aguamar as we enjoyed it so much last year. We very pleased to find it every bit as well presented and maintained as before. It is incredibly spacious and well equipped and, with a location just a few steps from the marina, can be highly recommended.

Great location and lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family and I returned to this apartment again this year for a second time as the location and facilities are hard to beat in Vilamoura.

There is no need for a car as the proximity to the marina means there is plenty of choice for restaurants that are just minutes away.

Pauline is always a pleasure to deal with and we certainly hope to return again next year.

Nearest Airport
20 Kilometres
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.
