About the Owner

I live in Southport UK. I have done a lot of travelling over the years and I eventually bought this apartment in Alagarve, Portugal. I use the apartment for myself, family and friends and guests for holidays throughout the year and to have a relaxing time.

Review Submitted: July 12, 2009 Date of Stay: May 2009

I can not recommend this apartment highly enough. It is situated with easy access to Praia da Luz and many other small villages along the coastline. The apartment itself is beautiful.



When we arrived and opened the door we were more than delighted with what we saw. The apartment is exceptionally clean and tidy and all the fixtures and fittings are of excellent quality. It is the nicest apartment that we have ever been lucky enough to book. There was everything that we could possibly require in the apartment and excellent kitchen and bathroom facilities. It was spotlessly clean and very well maintained.

The description of 10 Vilamar is a very true and accurate representation of this apartment. It was modern, clean and well maintained. The owner, Jeff, was very helpful and provided very good customer service and advice throughout.

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed a lovely 2 week stay in July 2016. The duplex Apartment was clean and has a well equipped modern kitchen and open plan lounge/diner on one level with 2 bedrooms and modern bathroom on the lower level. On a nice quiet complex with hotel rooms below with small snack bar circular pool ideal for cooling off and a smaller Kids pool. 20 minuets walk from the beach and all the restaurants/bars which we quiet enjoyed. If your looking for a nice apartment in a quiet location ideal holiday base.

Another visit for more sun

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I fancied another break to this lovely apartment and it was as good as last time. We spent more time around the pool and the gardens which were well maintained. The apartment was spotless and as last time everything was to hand. We tried all the restaurants that the owner suggested and did the Burgau hilltop walk - very spectacular. Hoping to come back soon. Thanks for looking after us.

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely two weeks over the new year in this apartment. It was very clean and had all the mod cons. The view from the balcony was spectacular. The owner was very helpful and told us of some great places to visit.

The weather was very good and sunny, the apartment had heaters which we used in the evenings when it got a bit chilly.

The walk from Luz back to the apartment was uphill but not as bad as we expected.

I would recommend the apartment and the complex for a relaxing holiday; we will certainly return.

Owner's Response: We pride ourselves on keeping the apartment spotless and keep the heaters in the bedroom cupboards for the guests if it gets a bit cool. Looking forward to having you back.

Location

From the Owner

Although I rent it, I think of it as my holiday home and when I retire maybe one day, I will spend all of my time out there. The apartment has a spectacular view over the ocean and eating outside is an absolute pleasure. It's so relaxing and peaceful. Praia da Luz is a wonderful small Portuguese town and only 10 minutes drive to the busy town of Lagos - the best of both worlds.

Facilities

From the Owner

The apartment is within walking distance (15 mins) to the beach and town of Luz. I have renovated the kitchen and bathroom so all mod cons are available for my guests. I have been very lucky as all my guests have really enjoyed their stay and looked after the place for me.
