Apartment in Vilamoura, Central Algarve, Portugal - Residential Location, 25 Minutes Walk To Beach And Lively Marina
Our beautifully appointed apartment has been refurbished to a very high standard as it is where we holiday every year. It is located very close to 6 championship golf courses and two gorgeous blue flag beaches. The lively marina boasts excellent restaurants and night-life. The apartment can accommodate up to 4 guests and comprises of 1 double bedroom with a large en-suite bathroom, and 1 twin bedroom with an en-suite shower room. There is a modern kitchen (with dishwasher), separate dining area and comfortable lounge. Outside there is a large terrace with sunbeds and a dining table and chairs. The terrace is almost 25 square metres (over 250 square feet) and is surrounded by a wall making it very safe for families. The apartment is set in beautiful gardens that are maintained to a very high standard, together with a lovely large and peaceful swimming pool - there is also a small, shallow pool for young children. For safety reasons the swimming pool is accessed via a secure gate.

About the Owner
We are a young family with two boys under 10. I have been visiting Vilamoura for 30 years and I haven't missed a year here yet. It offers a fabulous family destination and there is also loads of night-life for the young and young at heart. We refurbished the apartment for ourselves and so the fittings and furniture are of a much higher standard than you would normally get in a rental apartment. We try to deliver the personal touch and there is lots of information on the local area in the apartment.

Perfect base for a golfing weekend
Great apartment for our stay in July. Newly refurbished, it has all the facilities needed and a large outside terrace for eating out in the sun. Nice pool area which was never overly busy. Ideally located for anyone playing any of the Oceanico golf courses and only a 20 minute walk (€6 taxi) to Vilamoura marina. Always ample parking spaces on the road. Hosts were always quick to respond prior to our visit. Would highly recommend.
Perfect holiday spot
We are just back from 2 weeks at the apartment where we had a great holiday. Apartment is perfect for 4 people with each bedroom having its own bathroom. The pool area is exceptionally well kept and we never had an issue getting sunbeds as most people seemed to stay for just a few hours at a time. We often walked into marina in the evening, takes about 25 minutes strolling through a really nice park area and similar
time to walk to the beach. The Vilamoura rental bikes have a station outside and would be perfect for getting to beach, one of our children just being a little too small this year. We would recommend Aquashow waterpark, we had been there a few years ago and found it to be just as good this year, for all ages! Would love to return here again if we get the chance.
A great family holiday
We have just returned from a fantastic week staying at this apartment. The apartment was perfectly formed, extremley clean and just what we needed for a family getaway. Suzy lookd after us brilliantly before hand with information which was helpful & very efficent. The apartment was very private with the patio area but opened out into a large grassed area where the kids loved running around and playing without any hassles - the pool was secure with a key access and we never needed to reserve a sunbed people came and went throughout the day always space and beds free (alot of people preferred to use the grass area arpund the pool as it was shaded by large trees - dappled shade! Only two minutes walk was the supermarket which provided pretty much everything you needed and open from 8am to 8pm. Vilamoura was buzzin and about a 20min walk away although we hired a car so less than 5min drive ; loads of free parking in and around the marina. Only small complaint was lack of taxis around but think this was explained by locals as Portugese holidays which meant very busy. Would return to apartment and location again without hesiatation.
From the Owner
“I am half Portuguese and I love Vilamoura because it is such an easy place to holiday. The beach is the nicest I have ever seen, and the Marina offers great night-life. Being in a town offers all amenities on your doorstep and our apartment is in a residential block where many people live all year round. This means it is friendly and maintained to a high standard.”
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
Vilamoura is a sporting holiday destination with loads of opportunities to exercise. Running through the town is a fitness route for runners and walkers lined with about 15 fitness stations. There are innumerable watersports courses on offer, including sailing, water skiing, parascending, sea fishing, kitesurfing and surfing.
There are two main beaches at Vilamoura, the beautiful Falesia that stretches for miles, always offering plenty of space and seclusion ,even in the height of the season, and the Marina Beach that is right in the centre of Vilamoura and is serviced by the 5 star Tivoli Marina hotel.
The main beach at Vilamoura (to the west of the marina), called the Falesia, is beautiful, very clean and has been awarded the blue flag. It is fantastic for families and watersport enthusiastic alike.
Vilamoura is about 15 miles, or a 30 minute drive, from Faro airport. A taxi from the airport costs around €30, although hiring a car may be useful, particularly if travelling with young children.
Vilamoura is about 25 minuted from Albufeira, which is a popular town to visit. It has a lovely old town full of indivudual shops and there is a market which is a great place to find gifts to take back home. Leather goods are particularly good value.
There is a handy supermarket about 5 minutes walk from the apartment which bakes wonderful bread and doughnuts which we always go and get for breakfast.
