About John Braxton

My Name is John Braxton, I part own two properties at Praia Village with Tony Windsor and Richard Bacon.

I presently run my own Waste Management Company in Essex.

I have been Married to Melanie for 22 years, with two Girls, Both in Senior School.

John Braxton purchased this apartment in 2008

Why John Braxton chose Loule region

I have always been interested in buying somewhere abroad, and in 2007, with two close friends, we went out to Portugal to look at some properties to potentially buy.

After our first day of looking, we fell in love with Praia Village, and by 7pm that night we had purchased two properties.

Praia Village is in an excellent area, just far enough from the excitement of the Marina, but also close enough to enjoy the 15min walk to all the lovely Restaurants and Shops that the Marina provides.

We are a 10min walk away from the nearest store, or a 3 min cab ride away to the main store, or the Marina.

We are also a 15min walk away from the excellent sandy Feleshia Beach.

What makes this apartment unique

As a Family, we try and go out at least once a year during the Summer Holidays, it now feels like a second home to us, and the girls enjoy themselves so much, making them feel safe in the environment of Praia Village.

I also try to get out to Praia Village once a year with the lads and have a long weekend, maybe playing golf, or just sitting on the Marina all day in the sun, watching the world go by with a nice cold drink in my hand.

Fabulous Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been going to Portugal for many years and this apartment was one of the best we have stayed in by far. It was located within a first class complex with a great swimming pool and only a short distance to the many amenities Vilamoura has to offer. Great beaches, fantastic restaurants and friendly local people. The apartment itself was modern, clean and well maintained and decorated. The owner John provided an excellent service, hassle free. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and hope to stay there again soon. Thanks again John.
