A holiday rental in Vilamoura: a charming home away from home.

The impressive marina serves as a hub of activity where countless bars and restaurants entice visitors to Portugal. In fact the town is the biggest private tourism resort in all of Europe. Vilamoura’s prime coastal location grants access to pristine beaches, quaint fishing villages and exciting nightlife, ensuring that there is plenty to do and see. HomeAway has apartments and villas in Vilamoura in a wide range of styles, sizes and price ranges. Be it a cosy villa in Vilamoura for two overlooking the sea, near the chic marina, or a stylish Vilamoura villa with a pool and ample parking, HomeAway has got it.

Those looking to stay in a quieter, calmer town can opt for a HomeAway rental in Olhos de Agua, located about five miles away. HomeAway rentals in bustling Albufeira are an option, as are affordable villas and homes in nearby Almancil.

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.

Weather in Vilamoura

Vilamoura’s climate is one of its main assets. Summers are sunny and hot with up to 12 hours of sunshine per day and average temperatures of 30°C. A gentle Atlantic breeze keeps visitors cool and rainfall is practically non-existent. Fall is also a nice season to visit, with temperatures averaging 25°C. Winters are pleasant with average daily temperatures of about 16°C. Winter is considered the rainy season, though only about 50 days of rainfall are typically recorded.

Lovely area, fantastic, clean apartment with everything a young family needed

4 of 5
Thank you for a lovely stay. Everything was as described and it was great to have things like a travel cot included, maid service once a week and that lovely sunny garden. We would only suggest for future that the welcome folder should be left on a table for arrival with the pool entry key in as we didn't know about this so had to go to the management place. Also info on the restaurants and local area would be good. Minor thing as everything else was wonderful

Spacious and comfortable

4 of 5
We had a great week at this deceptively spacious, comfortable apartment. Only slight downside was that access to the pool area was at the end of the block - about a 2 minute walk from the apartment. Also there was only 1 key fob which gave you access in and out of the pool area. This proved quite difficult having to relay the keys back and forth to the apartment for five people. Other than that the apartment was comfortable and clean with all amenities you could wish for. Two spacious bathrooms and bedrooms, excellent air conditioning throughout, sky television on both tv's and lovely big balcony. Marianne, the owner and Lynda, the woman who looked after the apartment were lovely and couldn't do enough for you. Marianne made sure she helped me with any query I had from booking in March, to the stay in July, even when on holiday herself. Would definatley stay again. The location of the apartment itself was convenient for the restaraunts, golf club, pool and shops. I preffered this area to vilamora marina as it was much more peaceful with still things going on at the evening, without the noise and expense of the marina. Thanks very much Marianne.
