Quarteira Villas & Apartments (300+)

We found this apartment spacious, in a good location and excellent on site facilities

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Vila Sol. We are a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 teenagers) The apartment was a perfect size - having 2 bathrooms was a great benefit! The management company Clever Details were at the end of the phone & helped out when we needed help or had any queries. The complex itself was kept immaculately clean & tidy. Having 3 pools to choose from and a snack bar (that had happy hour!) was super! Location wise, there are 2 main towns where we went to shop, eat & swim in the amazing sea (Quarteira & Vilamoura) but you need transport. Thankfully we hired a car and we also took day trips further afield to Albufera etc There are lovely restaurants within walking distance and reasonably priced! We only watched TV once, but there seemed to be great choice if that was your fancy! We arrived on a late flight and didn't plan ahead - so I would recommend you organise with the management company to have some essential supplies in the fridge until you get to the shops yourself! I would highly recommend this / complex for a family holiday - or indeed any type of holiday!

Fantastic Family Holiday in Vilamoura

4 of 5
Thank you Carol for renting your beautiful 3 bedroom apartment to my family for 3 weeks in July '17. Our 3 kids loved the very private quiet pool, most of the time we were the only ones using it. The Apt. was exactly as described - homely, clean, fully functional kitchen, and the newly renovated showers were a prefect way to end a day of sunbathing before heading to the marina. Only downside was the location is a little too far to walk to the Marina so a car is definitely recommended, which i must add was highlighted by Carol from the outset. I would recommend this apartment in a heartbeat. Thank you for the memories. J.
