Things to do

-Beaches: The Algarve region of southern Portugal is known for its sublime coastline covered in golden sands and bordering crystal clear waters. Tourists flock the beaches in the summer months seeking to take advantage of the abundant sunshine to get that longed-for tan. However, those who wish to avoid holiday crowds can still find relatively secluded beaches here. Among the more popular beaches in Vilamoura are the Praia da Marina and Praia da Falesia.

-Marina: The Vilamoura Marina is really a beauty to behold and most of those booking holiday rentals in Old Village dream of promenading the marina among hundreds of moored boats and yachts. As they enjoy this and other incredible sights, visitors can recline in any one of the many bars and restaurants there. Most people who have been to the marina will recommend an evening in any of its Irish pubs.

-Food and drink: At the marina is an mind-boggling selection of eateries and visitors will be left with the delicious dilemma of choosing where to eat from Indian, Chinese, Italian, Thai and, of course, authentic Portuguese restaurants. One of the famous establishments offering Portuguese specialities is the Oliveira Dourada. Here diners will dig into an assortment of seafood dishes in a cosy, warmly lit atmosphere all at a very fair price.

-Historic landmarks: Vilamoura has pleasant surprise in store for history buffs; the ancient Roman ruins of Cerro da Vila found in the civil parish of Quarteira. The low walls that are seen at the site were once two grand villas built in the 2nd century BC during the Roman occupation led by Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus.

-Nightlife: Those Old Village holiday home residents who are not for turning in early will have plenty to keep them entertained till the wee hours. Nightclubs abound where tourists can shake a leg as do quiet bars where they can sip their beer while listening to the evening tide.

It was our first time booking an Old Village apartment direct from the owner; we stayed there on three previous occasions and booked each one from online comparison sites. I strongly recommend booking direct from an owner. First of all, you get to see pictures of the apartment in which you will be staying. Secondly, because you are communicating directly with the owner, you will get specific information about the apartment, not the atypical appropriation you get from a travel agent. Dealing with Nick was fantastic. The whole process was seamless, to the stage where I had the keys to Nick's apartment in-hand before we caught our flight from Ireland! The apartment is beautiful. It is well apportioned, comfortable and spacious, and has a beautiful roof terrace. It is very modern throughout and has all the mod cons you need to be self sufficient. The salient question that arises with any holiday experience is whether you would stay in the same place again. I can say without hesitation that we will definitely stay in Nick's apartment again. If you are looking at this apartment, then stop looking and book it! Gerry and Alicia
