About Carlos Augusto Sampaio Eraclides

I am Portuguese and live in Lisbon/Vilamoura. The properties were purchased by my family some years back. I have since renovated and redecorated them, to make it a confortable place for myself and of course suitable for you as my guests. You cannot please everyone, but generally speaking, the properties have a touch of my personal clean modern taste.

I went to University in the U.K. at Keele University, then. Therefore, I speak good english and Portuguese of course and I can communicate in French and Spanish if necessary. I understand both cultures and mentalities, and, can assure you that the Portuguese are extremely friendly and Portugal over all, is still one of safest places to travel and have a relaxing holiday.

Carlos Augusto Sampaio Eraclides purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Carlos Augusto Sampaio Eraclides chose Vilamoura

The Old Village is one of those places you fall in love with when you first arrive. Some people are known to stay in the compound the entire holiday! Its unique cobbled streets and stunning gardens are very pleasant, and it still has to offer bars pools restaurants and a supermarket. Many weddings take place here at one of the 5 restaurante available.

What makes this apartment unique

The architecture is ideal. It is based upon an Old European Village, with cobbled streets and low buildings with terraces to enjoy the Algarve sunshine. All my properties have sunbeds.

The property overall was high quality with air con and mod cons it's also really near the pool. It was also very clean and nicely furnished. It has a roof terrace which only used once as it was so hot while we were here.

The owner Carlos was here to greet us when we arrived & even carried our big case up the single flight of stairs to the apartment.

I'm thinking of booking again for next year it was so nice.

A brilliant find

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time booking through Owners Direct. I was a bit apprehensive but absolutely no need. From the minute I decided which apartment I wanted everything went smoothly. Carlos, the owner of the apartment, replied to my e mails straight away. It was so easy to book. When we arrived at Faro airport he answered his phone straight away and gave directions. He met us on arrival at the Old Village and actually helped my husband carry our bags. The apartment was spotless with a kitchen that has every piece of crockery and cutlery etc that you would need. Beds were really comfortable and, a big plus for me, the curtains were heavy enough to keep the light out in the morning. There was no hassle to get out of the apartment early on the morning we were leaving. It was lovely and hopefully we will be back again. Thank you Carlos.

Nice and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and tidy, and nicely decorated. It had everything we needed on holiday. The top terrace with sunbeds and bbq is great.

The Old Village is charming and ideally placed. 15 min. walk to the marina/beach or a 4 euro taxi/land train ride.

Any of the 3 swimming pools are well looked after, the owner provided us with the entering card but you have to pay a small charge to use the sunbeds around the pool.

The owner met us on arrival and is friendly and available.
