Excellent apartments and location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at Flora apartment and again all the boxes were ticked.

The pool was never too busy and always clean - very peaceful in the morning

The location of the apartment is perfect for exploring the area and local beaches and in easy walking distance of marina and restaurants.

The communication with Flora is as smooth as it goes where she has one aim for you to enjoy your holiday.

One point for the management company - some of the buildings could do with a paint in the near future just to spruce the complex up

Spacious light and airy apartment

  • 5 of 5

LOCATION - very peaceful location an easy stroll from the marina. The front balcony overlooks the pool and several large trees which offer welcome shade. The side balcony offers more open views over the town. Overall we couldn't fault the location.

CAR HIRE - what really made our holiday was to hire a car through Zit Autos from Faro airport. Rather unothodox operation working out of a van parked in car park, but we got an almost brand new car for 10 days at a very competitive rate. Payment is by cash. This allowed us to visit a different beach every day and travel to other towns in the area.

PROPERTY - this exceeded our expectations - spacious and airy and everything immaculately clean. Would certainly book again if visiting Vilamoura. The pool is kept immaculately clean with the maintenance man there every day.

RESTAURANTS - huge choice at the marina - our favourite was Akvavit - a cut above the others but also more expensive. We also enjoyed La Cabane and A Cabana in Quarteria on separate evenings.

A big thank you to Flora for helping make this a very relaxed and enjoyable holiday.

Very Good Value for Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was lovely living up to expectations and description. Excellent terraces -2 with spacious accommodation both inside and out. Gorgeous view across Vilamoura and sunsets are perfect. Located within comfortable walking distance of a Spar shop and onto restaurants and marina. If legs don't feel like walking taxis are readily available for approximately 6euro at night. We explored the East Algarve by car and found our location to be excellent for this as Faro was close by with Tavira less than an hour's drive away and Albufeira to the west easy to navigate and visit for shopping. Vilamoura has some lovely restaurants, shops and bars with something for everyone. We visited Flora's apartment early May when weather was wet but still had a great time away from the norm and felt as if we were coming home each time we returned to the apartment. Flora was great throughout our booking and stay and made us feel very welcome - the welcome pack was much appreciated! Highly recommended for lovely relaxing stay...will be keeping on my list of places to return to!

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, spacious, well presented apartment. Loved the roof terrace for evening drinks. Well maintained gardens and pool area. Pool cleaned every day. 15 minute walk into marina. Could not find any fault with this apartment. The welcome pack was a lovely gesture. Flora the owner is very helpful and friendly. Would definitely return.

This lovely apartment ticked all the boxes

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for my wife and I who decided to have a last minute holiday in the sun.

Flora the owner was absolutely brilliant during our booking as we wanted to travel mid week and she was very accommodating toward this, we arrived early in the morning and Flora had organised for us to have the keys to the apartment on arrival which allowed to start enjoying our holiday without missing half the day waiting to get into an apartment.

On Entering this spacious one bedroom apartment we were welcomed by a starter pack which contained the essentials and also a chilled bottle of wine and cold beer, the apartment was light with patio doors on two elevations leading to one very large balcony with sunbeds and dining table and the other to the front balcony overlooking the well kept swimming pool which also have a large dining table.

The location of the apartment is ideal to visit all the lovely beaches on the south coast of Portugal and with the modern infrastructure we found this painless and tried a new beech and beech bar each day.

Night life and restaurants are in the plenty and will fulfill everyone's needs, my advise is walk around the harbor and enjoy the ambiance and the cocktails but then venture into the back street to eat, the food is half the price and better quality.

From the Owner

We like the area of Vilamoura and have been holidaying there for many years. Vilamoura is close to the airport (20 minutes drive) and has access to many beautiful beaches such as Falesia, Vilamoura and Praia de Ze. It is also close to Quarteira where there a lots of Portuguese restaurants, a fish and vegetable market and the endless beautiful promenade that now runs from the tip of Quarteira all the way to Vilamoura. We enjoy cycling and this is perfect for us. Our property location is in a quiet area but if you wanted to go to the lively area it is just a 15 minute walk.

From the Owner

Sitting on our terraces every day with an iced drink watching the sun set. Even in the winter months the Old Village has charm and character. It is surrounded by Pine Trees and the greenery and golf courses. It's got the tranquil feeling. This year every single couple who rented our apartment enjoyed their stay. Please read the reviews.
