Lovely apartment great location

4 of 5
The apartment was in a nice quiet residential area but just a stones throw from the Marina with loads of restaurants and cafes and a short stroll to the beach. We had everything we needed for our stay and enjoyed drinks and a couple of meals on the large balcony. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment and Vilamoura to friends and family
