About Carlos Soares
I am a senior gentleman of Portuguese origin. I currently live in London - Clapham and first moved to London back in 1966 the year I went to see England win the world cup!
Why Carlos Soares chose Vilamoura
Although I love London I do miss the warm sunshine that we're not so blessed with here so back in 1986 I decided to buy my property in the Algarve and haven't looked back since. It immediately appealed to me for it's lovely tranquil location and really nice gardens.
What makes this Apartment unique
The property is one of only 37 apartments so it's a very small, well designed and maintained development. (Only two Floors high) It's really peaceful as only a handful of apartments are used as holiday lets. The proximity to the marina and all it has to offer is ideal for those without a car. It also serves as a great base for those who want to explore all the nearby villages/towns.

Great apartment in an ideal location - only 10 minutes from supermarkets, and a further 5 minutes to the Marina. Lovely pool area to use during the day or you can use the sun loungers on the balcony. Spacious enough for 4. Kitchen had all the equipment we needed.
Thank you very much for your review
It was a pleasure to have you in my apartment and I hope you will be back again in the near future
Lovely quiet location though close to the marina
Very clean fully equipped comfortable apartment. Air conditioning a plus. Lovely gardens and great pool for both adults and children. Pool cleaned every day and grounds kept tidy. A lovely tree lined safe walk to the marina. Reception and security staff very helpful and friendly. We booked our trips via the reception and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Carlos, I would recommend your apartment to anyone.
Great for families and very relaxing
A lovely clean and well equipped apartment exactly as described and surrounded by the most beautiful gardens.The swimming pool was well maintained and never too busy so we were totally relaxed on our return.The location was good,not so far from the centre and unless you want to do a lot of sight seeing a car is not necessary as taxi prices are very reasonable also there is a very good bus service.I would definitely recommend this apartment and we are hoping to return to this lovely part of Portugal in the future.Thank you Carlos.
RELAXING PEACEFUL HOLIDAY IN A TRANQUIL SETTING
A lovely tranditional Portugese property, nice open plan living area and two large bedrooms and bathroom, complete with everything you need. The balcony overlooks the private well kept garden and pool, all set in a residential area 10 minutes walk from the Marina, golf, beach, bars and shopping area. NIcely situated to explore other towns and villages within 30 minutes to 1 hour car ride.We had a wonderfull month of nice hot weather. The owner and the staff in the reception are so friendly, helpful and welcoming nothing is too much trouble, this just completed our stay and we look forward to going back again in the near future. Highly recommended.
Wonderful apartment in a beautiful surrounding
We (4 adults) stayed at this beautiful property for two weeks and had a great time. The communication with Carlos before was easy and very friendly. The apartment is well equipped and the pool never too busy, so you can relax there whenever you want to. If you are willing to walk a little bit, you don't need a car - it's a 15 minutes walk to the beach and the marina and a 7 minutes walk to the supermarket. Another advantage of this property is the reception - the receptionist is very, very friendly and helped us to get a rental car for our trip to sevilla and along the coast. The apartment is a great starting point for excursions, even if you don't have a car, you can take a train from faro to get to various destinations. We enjoyed our vacation very much and we would recommend this apartment! Thank you, Carlos!
