This luxury modern 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom and apartment sleeps 6 people

Augusta apartment is located in the popular family resort of Vilamoura and backs onto the world famous Millennium Golf Course and is within easy proximity to all the wonderful world class golf and splendid beaches that the Algarve offers. All 3 bedrooms are fully furnished to the highest standard and are fully air-conditioned during the summer months or heated during the cooler months. Whether at the splendid marina, the prestigious golf courses or the colourful and diverse shopping area, Vilamoura has everything you could ask for, including tranquility and good taste. As the largest apartment in the block the Apartment itself benefits from an all round terrace including front, side and rear meaning sunshine throughout the day . It also features a good sized outdoor pool at the rear which is shared by only 12 apartments. A maid service is included with fresh bed linen & towels provided for guests staying for 14 nights or more. If you are travelling with a baby we have 2 travel cots available for you to use free of charge if you require and a Little Tikes baby seat for feeding that can be strapped to a chair.

Amenities: Vilamoura is the heartbeat of the Algarve, with many activities to try, a must is wild Dophin watching, venture out by boat (speed boat for the adrenalin Junkies!) and watch in awe of one of the most beautiful mammals on the planet. These trips can be booked from Vilamoura Marina (a 5 minute car journey from our apartment). Also visit one of the biggest Aqua Parks in Europe for fun and relaxation, located just 10 mins drive away.

The Marina waterfront is huge, and great for wandering around day or night. From here a number of boats, including The Condor de Vilamoura, run excursions along the coast towards Lagos and beyond. Big game fishing is also available. A boat chartered from Vilamoura in 1993 caught the world's largest recorded black marlin - 737kg and 3.65m long! It's displayed on the dockside.

Either side of the marina are sandy beaches with several cafes and bars. Vilamoura is especially popular with sports enthusiasts due to its excellent facilities.

Great apartment.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week staying at Vilamoura and the apartment. A spacious apartment with everything you need. Clean and comfortable. Situated on the golf course with lovely green surroundings and swimming pool. Booking and communications with the owner were brilliant and I would highly recommend a stay here. A short drive from the marina and it's fantastic restaurants and only 15 minutes to Albufeura. I would recommend a car. I would definitely visit again.

Portugal August 2016

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely clean apartment. We were 5 adults and a baby girl of 1 yr and it was perfect for our needs. Shared pool but very quiet with some very nice neighbours, who loaned us inflatables for the baby. Felt very safe and homely with plenty of space for us all, air conditioning and wifi. Gill supplied us with all the info we needed to maximise our enjoyment of our stay in Vilamoura and the housekeeper supplied a welcome pack on request. Would definitely recommend a car although we managed for a week with taxis.

Nice apartment,shame about air conditioning

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is spacious and has all the basics you need. The pool area is lovely as is the balcony at the rear of the property. The beds were very comfortable. Disappointingly the air conditioning was not working in one of the twin rooms for 5nights of our stay which made our stay very uncomfortable,especially during the heat of the algarve summer. An engineer was called by the apartment manager and did arrive to sort the problem. The apartment is situated in a quiet area of houses and is very peaceful. A car is essential as there are no nearby shops or restaurants. Good communication from the owner before,during and after our stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Helen, thanks for your feedback, apologies again regarding the air con unit in the guest bedroom, we were only made aware of the fault on the Wednesday morning when the previous guests checked out before your afternoon arrival that same day, an engineer was booked to fix this at the earliest available appointment which was the Friday, however, frustratingly he called Friday morning to cancel and the Air con company was unable to send anybody else out that day or across the weekend, fans were left for you to use, until the engineer arrived Monday to fix it for the remaining 3 days of your week long holiday. Apologies again, and glad that you enjoyed your stay at the apartment and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Best Wishes Gill

Wonderful stay in Augusta apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 wonderful days in Vilamoura. We found the apartment as described by the owners. The space available even exceeded our expectations. We especially enjoyed the large terrace in the back which is shaded in the afternoon hours. The apartment is well appointed, having everything you may need. The children also enjoyed playing in the pool.

Gill, the owner, was very helpful answering timely to our emails and providing us useful information.

Thanks!

Nicoleta

Great Location Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 people (all Adult Males) staying at the property. The listing description was accurate regarding the Location and layout and facilities provide. 1st class. We did have a problem getting there that was totally our fault for no going with the recommended cab driver Gill had mentioned.

The property was clean and well maintained. I would recommend this property for any families and parties of six to go golfing.

The supermarket had all we needed regarding food especially food for the barbecue at the villa ,that was easy to use and clean.

Gill was great in helping us with any queries we had. It is very difficult to find good honest people you can trust. Gill was great anyone see this just do not hesitate just book it.

Lovely appartment

  • 5 of 5

Had a most enjoyable week . This was our first visit to the apartment. Although we saw the pictures on the web site it was far better than the pictures. The apartment is very big and beautifully furnished with everything you could wish for. It is a real he from home. The beds are very comfortable the outside area is very well maintained. The pool is lovely, at the time we went it was very quiet and we had the pool area to our selves. The view of the golf course is great you can watch the golfers on the 13 th tee from the patio. We would defiantly recommend this apartment and will certainly stay again
