Things to do

Vilamoura marina:

The marina is Vilamoura’s main activity centre. An impressive range of restaurants, bars and designer shops line the promenade, and the multitude of yachts are fascinating to look at. Many boat and fishing trips take off from the marina and are an excellent way to spend a day.

Beaches:

Vilamoura has two beaches within the city limits. Praia da Marina to the east of the marina is a busy spot with plenty of water sport activities to choose from. To the west is the more relaxed Praia da Falesia. This long stretch of sand leads all the way to Olhos de Agua.

Vilamoura Casino:

Vilamoura Casino is an exciting destination: aside from a large number of gaming rooms, it hosts regular evening entertainment. Nights of traditional dance and song as well as revues and magic shows are held here. The current program is available online.

Loule:

The 13th century town of Loule is located ten miles northeast of Vilamoura. Remnants of a 13th century castle draw in visitors, as does the daily market where fresh fruits, vegetables, spices and fish are sold. An added highlight is the gypsy market held every Saturday. Locals sell earthen pots, wooden toys, handmade lace and more.

Ria Formosa:

Found east of Faro, this sprawling natural park has an intricate network of lagoons, marshlands and elongated islands. Boats depart from Faro to many of the narrow islands.

Albufeira:

The busy and exciting city of Albufeira is one of the most visited in Portugal. Its famous strip is home to countless bars, restaurants and clubs for those looking to party in style. The Old Town is a quaint affair with cobblestone streets and an old clock tower. Fishermen's Beach, located steps away from the Old Town, is clean and safe.

Villa Agostinho has everything that we wished for, from a fully fitted games room to four en suite bedrooms. Throughout the entire process from last year when we booked to the post holiday communication, we found George very receptive, friendly and very open. We would recommend this villa to any of our friends and family. In addition to the bakery that is mentioned and the Browns sports club, where you can get a great breakfast, there is "The Old Village" close by which is worth a visit for something to eat. It is in fact not an old village but a new development but there are a few good places to have a meal and drink, within walking distance of the Marina. I would suggest a taxi to there from the villa however. Taxi's are cheap and easily booked from the villa. We rented a car from Zest who used Master Kings, and the service was excellent as well. The dropped the car off at the Villa and picked it up on time. We hired a very small car simply for getting provisions from the nearby Lidl or other large supermarkets. Back to the villa and there are plenty of reasons not to go out during the day, as the gardens are great for sunbathing next to the pool. The pool was a little chilly and I wished we had taken the option to heat this although by now, i am certain it would not be required as it was warming up everyday. The four males played many games of pool, table tennis and badminton on the lawn next to the pool (we took own and left our rackets there) whilst our wives sunbathed. We had several BBQ's and it was very pleasant for us all, as we all then enjoyed a meal on the terrace in the evening before going to the marina. First class and great vacation.

All you need, every bedroom had ensuite facility which was great for us all. Very child friendly villa which included child gates on the stairs which gave us all peace of mind. Safety fence round the pool too. Would go back again any time. Plenty of taxi's available to take you to the marina, 20 minute walk to Old Village with small shop where you could buy all essentials. Villa owner very responsive to your needs and queries. Can't wait to go back again soon.
