This is a new development built and furnished to a very high standard. It is situated in a very nice area in Vilamoura known as 'The Old Village'. The property is located beside Pinhal golf course and The Four Seasons, which is very popular with golfers and families alike. Within 'The Old Village' there are some very nice restaurants, snack/bars, supermarket and a very cosy local pub/bar with evening entertainment, and internet access. It is very close to Europe’s largest Marina with an abundance of restaurants, bars and shops. There are five 18 hole golf courses nearby, two beautiful beaches, various other sports and water sports/parks enjoyed by all ages!! The property comprises of a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, Double bedroom, living room with dining area & double sofa bed. There is also a lovely balcony overlooking the private pool and a staircase leading to a private roof garden with lovely views, complete with sun lounger’s, table & chairs .
This is an excellent property. It is very well maintained, clean and decorated to a very high standard. It is much more beautiful in reality then in the photos on the website.
The most comfortable bed. Air conditioning in the living area and the bedroom but we rarely used it although the temperatures were in the thirties, the evenings were very pleasent. The roof terrace is fantastic for any person who loves sun bathing. Sunshine from sun up to sun down. The pool area is very quiet and private. A 15 min walk will bring you to the marina or the fantastic beach,( that will never be crowded.) Water sports are available here at reasonable prices. Pinhal golf club is approx 200 meters down the road. There are so many other courses in the Vilamoura area you will be spoiled for choice. The marina has a large choice of restaurants. We foiund "Akvavit" really good.
There is a tourist train (great for kids) from the Four Seasons Hotel (next to apartments) which will take you to the marina etc. The Old Village is really nice. Bar's and restaurants there aslo, which we were told were very good .In general the village is a very nice quet area.
The owner provided excellent customer service. Very helpful with any info required.
I feel the apartment would not suit disabled or elderly people as it is on the third floor, access by steps. Perhaps for very young children , there would be alot of watching of them because of the steps to the roof terrace and the terrace itself.
When we go on holidays we like to stay in a property of very high standard and this ticked all the boxes.
I would highly recommend this property and have already told friends and family about it. If I return to Vilamoura I would have no hesitation in booking it again
We had a wonderful holiday and the comfort of the apartment enhanced it.
This apartment is very comfortable and located in a lovely part of The Old Village. Brian was most helpful when we were making the booking. Lovely and clean with a great balcony. Everything was perfect for our stay. The apartment looks out over a pool and green area. Located about 15-20 minutes of a walk (well we do walk quick) from the Marina so it is really central to restaurants and shops.
There were quite a few Scottish people staying in The Old Village whilst we were there because Scotland were playing in the qualifier's for Euro 16 so there was a lot of craic.
Overall, we found this apartment to be really great and would have no reservation in recommending to anyone.
This is a wonderful,spacious,clean and well maintained apartment.Located in the Old Village Prestige complex,opposite the Four Seasons Hotel,beside one of the many golf courses,it is a third floor apartment with a lovely sunny balcony from midday until sunset and also boasts a rooftop terrace,equipped with sunbeds, for sunbathing.
The apartment has everything you would need for a most comfortable stay-furnishings are modern,kitchen well equipped, a multitude of tv channels. The balcony overlooks a small and shallow swimming pool-its usually very quiet as most children tend to go to the other two pools in the complex-a swim is certainly possible though.
The complex has 3 restaurants - the best one being Casa du Largo in my opinion- Jaffers supermarket and also the Buccaneer pub with its regular Happy Hours.
It is about a 12/15 minute walk to the Marina using the shortcut through the park.The holiday train runs from the Four Seasons but is now 5 euro per adult - a bit expensive I thought.
The owner of the apartment was at all times very helpful and informative about the whole area.He kept in regular contact via email.
I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this apartment for a very enjoyable holiday in Vilamoura - be it for the sun and beach, golf or whatever!
A fabulous apartment located in the Old Village Prestige. The apartment is exactly as shown in all the photos with all the accessories you could wish for plus, as others describe, this 2nd floor apartment has the added benefit of a large roof terrace with good views.
On arrival everything was spotless with a plentiful supply of towels
The location means no car necessary as the the Old Village has a good selection of bars and restaurants and the marina area is within a 10-15 mins easy walk (only the hill alongside Pinhal Golf Course from the bottom of the road to the Old Village) or if required a taxi to the marina only costs EUR 5..
We had never booked direct through an owner previously, but dealing with Brian was straightforward and was/is a very pleasant experience.
I am submitting this review in Jan 2014 as we have stayed again in this apartment over Xmas and have already booked again for 2014 what more can I say.
This apartment ticks all the boxes for an enjoyable and relaxing place to stay while on holiday in Vilamoura. It is located in The Old Village which is a lovelycomplex with great facilities including three swimming pools, supermarket, restaurants and bars.
The apartment is spacious, comfortable and well maintained. The furnishings are decor are modern and fresh. The air-con is an added bonus especially since we visitied mid July! Brian organsied a travel cot for our fifteen month old son which was great. The apartment is top floor (third floor)and benefits from a fantastic roof terrace and balcony area. The apartment is equipped with all mod cons inclduing cable TV with large selection of channels.
The tourist train stops across the road from this apartment at the Four Seasons hotel and it runs a regualr service to Vilamoura Marina, great for families with young kids. Vilamoura Marina is bustling with a large selection of fine restaurants and bars.
Brian was easy to deal with and our booking and rental went off without a hitch. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a rental in the Vilamoura area. We hope tovisit again soon.
We stayed at this apartment for 4 nights and have to say it exceeded all expectations. Location was tranquil and only a short walk or €4 taxi ride down to the Marina in Vilamoura. The accomodation itself was comfortable and clean and provided everything we needed for our break. The real gems of this apartment are the roof terrace and the sun trap of a balcony.............ideal for a relaxing break in the sun. Our dealings with Brian during the booking process went without a hitch. The only downside to our stay was the fact that we were only staying for 4 nights! We will without doubt be back.
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.
