Great apt, spacious & clean in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment in a really quiet area.

Property was well maintained and had just about everything you needed.

Quite often we had the pool to ourselves. It was also well maintained. There is a gated car park if you had a hire car and this is an ideal place if you want a quiet chilled out holiday.

The owner David was very helpful & available at the end of the phone if there were any problems.

There is a Spar not far from apartment & there was a bus stop just outside the shop. If you are not able to walk far I would recommend a car as it was a far way to the beach & amenities.

We often went to a coffee shop 5 mins by car at Carminho do Lago called Maria's. It was a lovely friendly place.

We also used a restaurant called Pirata wher the food and service was brilliant. That was 10 mins away.

You could also head to the Old Village for a good selection of pubs & restaurants.From there youu can jump on the tourist train and ride down into Vilamoura where there are loads of restaurants.

All in all I would recommend this apartment.

We had a really relaxing time.

Owner's Response: Thank you Chris for your lovely review and we are glad you had a nice stay in our apartment. I would always recommend a car as we are only a five minute drive from the marina and beaches. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future. Regards David

Another fantastic holiday here.

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and it will not be the last. We love it. Fantastic apartment and the pool is magnificent and the grounds are really lovely and very well maintained. Plenty of room for 4 adults in this apartment and 2 bathrooms - brilliant. Bus stop, supermarket and a couple of bars very close by. Main Marina is about 40 minutes walk but we love to walk and easy and cheap to get a taxi back. Perfect location for anyone who wants to play golf - very close to The Old course, Pinhal, Victoria, Millenium and Laguna. Some new furniture from last trip, very nice. - Roberta and Stephen

Fantastic holiday apartment for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property, it is well kept, clean, spacious, with great pool facilities within well kept beautiful grounds. We have two children who had so much fun in the pool, deep end, shallow and baby pool all great with toilet facility in the pool area(important with kids) Quiet location close to the beautiful Vilamoura marina and beach, we had a car so supermarkets and amenities were easily accessible, day trips further up the coast are a must, Portimao and Albufeira to name a few. The owner David has been helpful and contactable, we had a wonderful holiday at his super property. Thankyou David.

5* Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in David's apartment recently with a friend and our 3 children. It was absolutely beautiful and could not believe how well kept and clean it was. The private garden is perfect for families with children. The marina and beach is very close by. If I visit vilamoura again I would only ever stay here. Very highly recommended. David is also extremely helpful and answered all of our questions we had before, during and after our stay. Thanks again David.

We found this apartment after being told about this website. Contacted owner ( David ), he was very helpful. Apartment, whole complex and pool were superb and suitable for couples + families. Everything very clean and tidy. Very relaxing break. Good bus service and taxis to Vilamoura for restaurants and beach. Supermarket/Bars/Restaurants all nearby.We will definitely be back.

Car: recommended

My apartment is situated in a lovely small complex within like a small village. There are a couple of local bars & a restaurant a short walk away and also a local Spar supermarket nearby with a lovely coffee shop next to it. Also my apartment is situated near to the Old golf course and golf range academy. It is a 5 minute drive to Vilamoura Marina and beaches and one of the biggest Water parks Aqua show is only 10 minutes away. I would recommend a car to get around and see the beautiful Algarve.

The town of Quarteira is a short drive away where you will find the biggest market on the Algarve situated every Wednesday. If you are looking for that quiet relaxing holiday by the pool with lovely spacious gardens in the day and not to far from all the exciting night life of Vilamoura then this apartment is for you.

Other Activities: The biggest mini golf attraction on the Algarve

Golf: The area of Vilamoura is famous for its championship Golf courses including the Old course, Victoria, Millennium & Laguna, Pinhal and Vila Sol courses which are some of the best in the world. If you are a golfer then look no further as all these courses are in close proximity. Also you will find many more courses across the Algarve.
