About Ian and Beverley

Beverley and Ian live in England with their two boys aged 12 and 16. We enjoy holidaying abroad and have really taken to Portugal and the Algarve. The Portuguese are extremely friendly and the flight time from the UK isn't too long, with reasonably priced flights available from many UK airports and other European airports. We've been enjoying our apartment since our boys were 3 and 8 and they enjoy catching up with their friends from other apartments - Vila Sol is very family friendly and safe.

Ian and Beverley purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Ian and Beverley chose Loule region

We have several friends who have apartments in Vila Sol. After renting there ourselves we decided to 'take the plunge' and purchased our own property in 2007.

The Vila Sol complex is very family friendly with secured gated garden areas with large expanses of grassed areas for the children to play in, plus the three well maintained pool areas. There are shaded areas too under the numerous trees in the garden area. The airport at Faro is only 20-25 minutes away and it is served by several airlines with competitive fares. The local beaches are fantastic and close by whilst Vilamoura Marina is less than 10 minutes by car or taxi.

Wifi is available in the restaurants nearby, in the central pool area and also via a dongle that can be rented from Customer Services on a daily or weekly basis.

What makes this apartment unique

Our property benefits from secure underground car parking, which is really great as it keeps your car cool in the heat of the summer months.

The property is extremely well maintained and furnished to a very high standard.

We keep a travel cot and high chair in the apartment; these are available at no extra cost.

Ian and Beverley's Vila Sol Resort apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful apartment for a week in Sept 2016. Its on a golf resort, just outside Vilamoura, near the Quarteira beaches.

The apartment is lovely, with great facilities; peaceful, with a great view over the parkland that it surrounds. The 3 pools are located within this parkland area, along with a bar/snack area. Plenty of room to luxuriate in the sun.

It also has a very good pub on site, serving a local IPA (!) and good food.

We spent some time on the local Quarteira beaches. And whilst not as scenic as some on the Algarve, they were sandy, clean, quiet, with shower areas. Also with bars and restaurants that were very good, and significantly cheaper than those around Vilamoura.

Recommended location, well connected to the rest of the Algarve.

Ian was a great host, and a pleasure to deal with.

A lovely place to stay on the Algarve. Highly recommended.
