About Mrs Joanna Wain

We are a family – Grandparents, husband and wife and 2 children aged 11 and 8. We have been coming to the Old Village for the last 20 years and have met other regular visitors which has enabled us to make long term friends whom the children have grown up with. We bought the apartment as the Old Village is a beautiful condominium with exceptionally well kept gardens and facilities with easy access to Vilamoura, the Marina and its lovely beaches.


Your apartment is very nice and had everything that we needed. We also really liked the Old Village complex. It was quiet (even round the pools), the grounds were beautiful and very well cared for, and the on site agents were helpful. Vilamoura itself is lovely and very easy to get to. - J.B. Surrey

Mrs Joanna Wain purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Mrs Joanna Wain chose Vilamoura

Linda and I just wanted to say we had a wonderful time in the Old Village and your place is lovely. It was just what we wanted. The lady in the Old Village reception was helpful and informative. Once again thanks for all the help and info and I have already recommended your place to friends and family should they wish to go to Vilamoura.- N.C. Ireland

Hi Jo, just a short message to say thanks for renting us the apartment. It was fantastic, clean and just as we'd hoped. Would recommend to anyone. Will hopefully like to use in the future too. Jonathan

Beautiful place, would highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This villa is in Old Village. A really beautiful setting. The villa itself was spotless when we arrived, and was perfect for what we needed. The living room had a very comfy sofa and a TV with more than enough channels. Bedrooms and the kitchen were lovely. There was everything you needed in the kitchen for self catering (plates, pots, pans, chopping board, utensils etc). The bathroom was lovely with a very large luxurious shower. Having the garden to sit in on an evening was really nice. Surrounded by beautiful flowers in a stunning setting. We were less than a 5 minute walk from the many restaurants, bars and swimming pools.

It’s happy hour in at least one of the bars for every hour of the day. Drinks and food were really reasonable, staff were very friendly and accommodating. There’s free WiFi throughout the whole of the Old Village.

It was the most relaxing holiday I’ve ever had and I couldn’t recommend Old Village and this Villa enough.

Thank you and we will be back

One very happy customer

The agent and owner of the apartment were very efficient and helpful throughout.

The apartment was spotlessly clean and spacious for 2 adults.

The lounge had a modern suite and dining table with a wall mounted TV that had an excellent choice of channels.

The double bed was extremely comfortable, the additional bedroom had twin beds, the bathroom and kitchen facilities complimented the apartment.

There was an outdoor patio with sun loungers and dining set and the grounds were well maintained on a daily basis

The apartment is idealy situated with good local amenities and within walking distance of the Marina.

We would have no hesitation in recommending the apartment for 2 adults with a young family.
