Make a holiday apartment in Vila Sol Golf & Resort your home away from home

At the mention of the word Algarve, most people’s minds abandon work and start daydreaming of the cloudless skies, clear waters and golden sands of southern Portugal. The Vilamoura resort in particular is renowned for its delightful beaches which are lined with an assortment of eateries and lively entertainment spots. There are plenty of outdoor activities here to keep thrill-seekers engaged and history buffs will have enough archaeological sites to keep them busy. To make their stay comfy and as tranquil as possible, HomeAway offers holidaymakers holiday homes in the exclusive Vilamoura Resort and Golf Area. These homes largely consist of holiday apartments and villas that are within a stone’s throw of the Atlantic Ocean. While there they will have swimming pools in which they can cool off from the summer heat or beside which they can soak up some rays.

Apart from the immaculately manicured lawns, visitors will be able to shelter in the shade offered by scattered pine, fig and almond trees. Whether you’re a pro or just learning the game, you’ll love it here.

-Ancient ruins: History buff or not, anyone who finds themselves in Vilamoura will want to visit the Cerro da Vila Roman ruins. These are essentially what is left of a rustic Roman villa, estimated to have been built between the first and third centuries. From what remains of the building’s walls one can map out the kitchen, the bedrooms, the reception room and the place where servants were put up. There is also evidence if bath areas.

-Marina: Being residents of holiday homes in Vila Sol Golf & Resort will put visitors within easy reach of the Vilamoura Marina. This marina has a capacity of over 1,000 vessels and there several boats and yachts floating around here at any given time. apart from admiring these vessels while strolling along the pier, holidaymakers can busy themselves in the enormous casino there or refresh themselves in the marina’s bars.

-Beaches: Not far from the marina is the marina beach where holidaymakers can take advantage of the summer sun to acquire an attractive tan. But apart from lounging on the soft sands or taking carefree promenades on them, holidaymakers will find many water sports they can engage in. They can grab a jet ski and zip around over the waters of the Atlantic or try their hand at parascending.

-Nightlife: Those who are not early sleepers need not retire to their Vila Sol Golf & Resort holiday homes with the setting of the sun. They can take the opportunity instead to discover what Vilamoura has to offer with a leisurely bar crawl. And they will be pleasantly surprised at the range of options available. From quiet pubs to raucous night clubs; it’s all there.

Weather in Vila Sol Golf & Resort

The weather here is no different from what you’ll observe in other parts of the Loulé region; bright and sunny for most of the year with the interruption of a relatively mild winter. From as early as April temperatures begin to average in the twenties. This warmth continues to increase as the year progresses, culminating in August when days with temperatures over 30°C are not uncommon. Little to no rainfall is experienced during this season. Only as winter takes over from autumn does some rain begin to fall and by December averages of over 100mm are recorded.

Travel to Vila Sol Golf & Resort

Like most other Algarve tourists, holidaymakers booked into Vila Sol Golf & Resort holiday apartments and homes will fly in through the Faro or Lisbon Airports. Coming in through the former puts them closer to their ultimate destination and after less than an hour in a taxi or bus, they will be in their holiday rentals. Coming in through Lisbon means an additional four hours by train or booking a connecting flight, which is not cheap.

                          Excellent family property in lovely area.

                          5 of 5
                          The villa and facilities are very good. We stayed during February half term and so the area was quiet and we had the pool to ourselves, this was ideal for us but it may be a problem for some people. Off season will mean few, if any, other people in surrounding properties. We had four children and two adults and the property was ample size for our party. We are Foster Carers, it was the first time abroad for three of the children and we do not think the holiday could have been any better. The children were very impressed with the villa and the word of the week was "fantastico". We would also recommend the taxi company "Manuel Inacio", 00351 919 222 230 the chauffeur service is excellent and very clean vehicles. A very small negative is that on arrival a deposit of 250 euros is paid, we would have preferred an option to have paid this in sterling. We would definitely recommend this property and we are seriously considering returning later in the year. Many thanks to the owners for sharing your lovely holiday home with us. It is a credit to you.

                          Had a fabulous time in Paul and Mandy's Penthouse apartment. The owners were really nice to get on with and nothing was too much of a problem for them. The apartment itself is furnished to a high standard with everything you could need. The bedrooms all with excellent en suite facilities, modern kitchen with all the appliances, lovely sitting and dining areas, balconies to all bedrooms and a fantastic roof terrace with just the best views over Vila Sol down to the sea. The Palmyra complex is gated and secure, has excellent facilities and is constantly being maintained. Mandy leaves an excellent handover booklet with lots of tips. You do need a car to get about, but the Vila Sol centre with restaurants and pub are walkable - about 30 minutes. (Take the first right after the Pestana Hotel and you will have a lovely stroll down to the pub past some seriously stunning villas overlooking the golf course) We tried numerous places to eat and would recommend these... Cheap and Cheerful - Marufo 1 - great tasting chicken! Mid range next to the marina - Romarino - great pizzas, really pleasant staff, excellent all round value! Something Special - Wildfire Smokehouse - we went twice, fantastic food, just the best service, great wines, lovely setting. Just be prepared to be seduced by the service and the ambience, our first meal for 4 cost almost 400 euros, but was so good we went back again and managed our second visit under 200! Overall a fantastic break, excellent apartment, great gated complex, and owners that were a pleasure to deal with. Many thanks Paul and Mandy. Al
