My husband and I have just returned from a great week's stay in this lovely property. The apartment was immaculate and has everything you could need for a great holiday. We used the rooftop terrace daily for sunbathing, which was excellent and private, and also made use of the lovely communal pool. The Old Village has some good restaurants and we ate there twice during our stay, we also used the tourist train which stops at the Four Seasons across the road to travel to the beach and marina. You could walk to the marina if it's not too hot and also a taxi is less than €5, so it is ideally situated. Darina was a pleasure to deal with, nothing was a trouble to her and she responded to my emails very quickly. All in all an excellent place to stay and would certainly recommend it.

Perfect Winter Break

  • 5 of 5

We have had a perfect eight night winter break (January/Feb) in Darina & Jim’s apartment.

The apartment has everything you need for a relaxing warm and comfortable stay.

As stated in previous reviews Darina & Jim are on hand if you need them and Darina was excellent to book with, answered all my e-mails very quickly.

After a nice walk around the marina or a walk along the front to Quateira we enjoyed the private roof terrace for an extra dose of winter sun. We even booked a couple of trips through the ‘Tourist information’ office on site which was helpful.

As it was winter not all the facilities were open in the Old Village, but the supermarket and O’Café bar and Rendezvous restaurant were open and for us this was adequate. However after a nice day out we enjoyed eating in a couple of times and the television has all the cable channels you need.

We would not hesitate in recommending to family and friends and we hope to return ourselves in the future.

We wish you all the best and hope you have a great 2017 season.

Perfect apartment in a beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic week staying in this perfect apartment on Old Village. The apartment is on the top floor of a block of 3 with additional private access to a large roof terrace with sun loungers and table and chairs which is great for a laid back breakfast. There is also a bbq for alfresco dining.

The apartment has everything that you need and is immaculate. It is extremely secure with access to a private pool for residents of Prestige apartments only.

Darina who is the owner has to be the nicest person we have rented from. Despite my numerous questions she responded quickly and even offered to get some provisions from the supermarket as we had a late arrival. Darina lives across from the apartment and is always on hand if you need her. Darina organised our transfers and they were excellent.

Old Village is a community with several pools, a supermarket and a number of restaurants including a cafe bar. It is a short 15 minute stroll down to the Marina and is less than 30 minutes from Faro airport.

We would be very happy to recommend the apartment to friends and relatives and look forward to returning.

Thank you Darine you made our stay extremely comfortable.

Wonderful apartment in the old village

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived back from a wonderful holiday at The Old Village. The apartment is modern, very clean and spacious. Huge balcony over looking the pool with the sun on it in the afternoon. Also loved the roof terrace where you can have a BBQ. The owner is so helpful and really made our holiday easy. The old village complex itself is very beautiful, well kept gardens and pretty town houses to walk round with about 5 restaurants to choose from,catering for all tastes. Some restaurants offered take away food which was great for eating in. There was also a shop onsite. So easy with children. we have a 4 year old and she loved the pool. We will definitely be returning very soon.

It is approximately a 15 minute walk to the Marina with it's beautiful yachts, restaurants and shops. You will also find the nearby blue flag Falesia beach. There are various water parks and the renowned Zoomarine where you can swim with the dolphins. There are five 18hole championship courses in Vilamoura. In 'The Old Village' there is a wonderful Michelin star restaurant known as 'Willies' which we would HIGHLY recommend for that special occasion. Eating out- ALL tastes (& pockets) are catered for. Likewise, Nightlife accommodates all tastes and ages. Locally there is a top rate fitness centre which can be used on a daily rate! And for anybody into the 'MARKET' scene there is a really good one in the nearby town of Quarteira on Wednesday mornings. A visit to the nearby town of Loule is a must, even if only to ramble the narrow cobbled shopping streets. And for the shoppers, there is ALGARVE SHOPPING, 15KLMS, Portugal’s largest shopping centre, well worth a visit!
