Fab Vila Sol Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We all had a great time whilst staying at the apartment.To start with the location is excellent with it being only 25 minutes from Faro airport and very easy to find. Once there it's situated overlooking the gardens and pool area with a massive terrace. The apartment is high spec with individual air-con in all rooms and nicely furnished throughout. You are only 2 minutes from the golf clubhouse, with tennis courts nearby. There is a water park around the corner, many beaches only a short drive away, with Villamoura marina with all the resturants only 10 mins away. It all adds up to a Fab holiday!!!!!!!!

We had a great holiday, staying in this lovely apartment. It's by far the most spacious we have visited and certainly in the best condition. The communication with Sue was great. She was always quick to respond and very helpful.

The Vila Sol complex is fantastic with just the right amount of shops and restaurants within walking distance. The Tapas bar is a must!

The three pools are all very clean and well cared for, as are the grounds as a whole. We didn't hire a car and you can survive without, but if we return (which we will) we'll hire to venture further afield!

Excellent Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this apartment. Excellent facilities and a great location for a holiday. Well maintained and very comfortable. I have recommended this accommodation to others.

Five minutes from the local waterpark and 10 minutes from the Marina. Lots to do and see and ideal for kids with a choice of pools in the gardens.

Lovely spacious and comfortable apartment with good facilities.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday, ideally located although a car is a definite advantage to take advantage of exploring the area. There are local restaurants and a lovely café which served very good wine in easy walking distance. The pools and their surrounding area were clean and well served with facilities. We enjoyed our stay and sitting on the balcony in the evenings - very hot in the afternoon however.

Fab apartment at a great complex

  • 5 of 5

The apartment at Vila Sol was ideal for us with parents and our own child. Having three bedrooms the accommodation was more than enough for all of us and with the added bonus of three bathrooms (two bathrooms, one toilet). The complex the apartment is on is very safe, perfect when travelling with an adventurous 2 nearly 3 year old with key fobs needed to access pool area and to exit.

The variety of places to eat on site was brilliant, something for every taste and other recommendations were also great, a day at the beach and a visit to BJ's is a must.

The use of the local golf facilities helped to keep my partner and my father busy while the ladies enjoyed the sun. All local golf courses are of a very high standard and the shopping at Algarve Shoppong is fabulous.

All in all a great holiday, we will be back next year!

Thanks Sue and Paul

Nearest Airport
20 Kilometres
Car: recommended

The village is part of the 5 star Vila Sol Golf Resort & Spa situated within the 'Golden Triangle' of Quinta Do Lago, Vale Do Lobo and Vilamoura and is just 20 mn from Faro Int'l airport.

The town of Quartieira with it's beach side restaurants, bars and famous fish market is only a couple of minutes drive as is Vilamoura Marina.

The beautiful marina has more than it's fair share of superb restaurants and bars to suit every taste.

About 15 mn further west is the lively Albufeira resort which is definitely worth a visit for a fun day/night out.

All along the coast are superb sandy beaches and quiet coves to explore. You are spoilt for choice!

Apart from the marvellous golf and tennis facilities, there are water sports, cruises, sailing, fishing, horse riding, bowls, etc all available locally and the kids will love the water park which is less than 5 minutes away!

A really great location!!

For further details, information and photos of the complex, please contact us.

Other Activities: Casino in Vilamoura Marina

Golf: The Algarve is home to some fabulous golf courses and the apartment is adjacent to the Vila Sol course, a few minutes walk from the clubhouse. This superb course has twice hosted the Portuguese Open as well as the Lancome Trophy and Johnnie Walker Classic. It has challenging undulating holes which meander through an old pine forest, with water and fast greens to negotiate. A lovely clubhouse overlooks the 18th green, where you can enjoy a well earned drink and meal !

Within a few minutes drive are the Vilamoura courses, featuring The Old Course, Pinhal, Laguna, Millenium and the latest addition The Victoria, designed by Arnold Palmer. Again, these are all excellent courses with great facilities.

Probably some of the most famous courses in the area lie about 10 -15 mn east of the apartment.

These are The Royal and Ocean at Vale do Lobo, Quinta North and South at Quinta do Lago and also Pinheiros Altos and the famous San Lorenzo course.

There are even more courses further East and West including Henry Cotton's favourite 'Penina' near Alvor.

This really is a golfer's paradise !!
