About the property


The apartment is part of an amazing complex which is fully gated, secure and has plenty of amenities such as an excellent pool bar in the summer, selling refreshing cold drinks, snacks and coffees.

Within 300 metres, there is the amazing Wildfire Steak House restaurant (Steaks to die for), a Wine Bistro, 2 cafes, Moon Restaurant and the wonderful Oscars bar, with live music, quiz nights and great bar meals and cocktails every night of the week.

There is an onsite Convenience Store and slightly further up the road, you have the 5 star Vila Sol Hotel which houses a relaxing spa, beautiful pool area and various bars and restaurants. You can also try your hand at tennis, hit some golf balls on the driving range or jump in a buggy and play 9, 18 or 27 holes of Championship Golf.

Vilamoura Marina is approximately 5 minutes in a car (7 euros in a taxi) and here you will be bumping into the rich and famous. As a family, we have been visiting Vila Sol for 14 years and the kids keep wanting to go back year after year. We know you will enjoy it and we are confident you will rebook on your return.

NEW for 2017 is a second property very close by which allows us to accommodate larger families up to 9/10 people and both apartments come with FREE WIFI and plenty of UK TV channels.

About Ian Fraser

Married with twin boys and the whole family are Vila Sol fanatics.

Ian Fraser purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Ian Fraser chose Vilamoura

Our family have been visiting the Algarve for 20 years and Vila Sol has been our regular spot for the past 16 years, since the first phase opened. Over the years, the place has got better and better with the new supermarket and restaurants opening. Oscars bar is a fantastic place to relax and watch any sporting events then take in live music. The owners and staff are fantastic and nothing is too much trouble. All of these amenities are within a 2 minute walk of the apartment which was the main reason we chose to purchase here. We hope, make that believe, you will get the Vila Sol bug once you have been.

What makes this apartment unique

For us, the ground floor walk out access to the pools is absolutely vital as using the gates and keeping keys etc can be cumbersome.

Fantastic Holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve just returned from a wonderfully relaxing 2 week stay at this apartment. The apartment, gardens, pool and location are fabulous...we could not have wanted for more.

Unfortunately the fridge freezer broke on our second day but following a text to the owner a temporary replacement was delivered within 2 hours and a brand new appliance delivered and installed in 2 days!!

We loved this holiday and that was mainly due to the apartment and surroundings, everything was well maintained and beautifully clean. The public areas which can sometimes be neglected in such places were always immaculate and the lush green space was a haven for children to run around and play.

We will definitely be recommending to others and hopefully return ourselves in the future.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Fantastic three week stay

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish Ian made the booking process simple and painless, excellent communication and welcome back

We have just spent three weeks here in Portugal and Ian and Maureen’s apartment was a brilliant place to stay, it was like home from home, the apartment has everything you could ever need. It is located on a lovely golf course, the heated pool is just seconds from the patio area, which is kitted out with a dining table and comfy sun beds. The site is clean, safe and secure with plenty of amenities for those without a car.

Make sure you pay a visit or two to oscars bar, excellent food and cocktails, regular entertainment, the staff are friendly and welcoming

We can’t wait to return

Thanks to Ian and Maureen for letting us rent your apartment

February - Large, quiet, warm

  • 5 of 5

We enjoy our stay in Algarve. Can recommend it for hiking and sightseeing. Nice sunny weather (15C) if you are lucky, no crowds, silence, a lot of empty parking spaces..

App is OK - large, clean, enough heating equipments, no problem with parking. In February very quiet!

Thanks a lot.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few lovely days in February to meet up with friends. Great apartment close to a few bars and restaurants and a short taxi ride or an hour's walk from the marina in Vilamoura. Apartment is spacious with a great outside space too. Furniture is all in good condition and very comfortable. Really enjoyed our stay. Thanks.
