About Pam Ryder

I am from South Africa and in 2007 I moved to London where I experienced my best career years and met my husband who shares my passion for sports. Between us we have 5 grown up boys and 6 grandchildren. From 2012 and October 2015 work took us to Miami where we had of course the best weather conditions for our love of the outdoors. We are now living in the British countryside near Cambridge which is very beautiful and Vilamoura remains our little piece of heaven for breakaways.

Why Pam Ryder chose Loule region

LOCATION=>Lovely tranquil location and at same time conveniently situated to all the amenities.

Bright and spacious with open plan modern kitchen, two big patios with BBQ and sun loungers.

There are only 12 units in complex so it is not crowed as some places, giving you a feel of being at 'home away from home' .

The only noise you hear are the birds singing in the morning.

What makes this house unique

Bright and spacious with two patios leading to the beautiful gardens and pool area giving you the feeling of being on a private villa but without paying the private villa prices :-)

Perfect if a big family and want to have some privacy as upstairs is very independent with a lock up door from the foyer.

Location - situated in a peaceful residential area where the only noise in the mornings is the birds singing and at the same time it is walking distance to Marina, beaches, restaurants.

Small complex - 'Atlantico Resort' is a gated complex only with 12 units so it does not get crowded.

FREE bikes

4 Bike cards to use in the Vilamoura Public Bikes Scheme, with over 200 bikes that can be rented and returned to any of its 35 stations. There is a bike post a 5 minute walk outside Casalinda.

Excellent holiday property!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (incl. two teenaged children) had the pleasure of staying at this property the last two weeks of July. The villa is very well laid out with tasteful (and expensive) furniture. The kitchen is very modern with all appliances (incl. washing machine and dishwasher), and the property is very clean. There is a good sized swimming pool. The garden is maintained daily by a very friendly and helpful caretaker. Although only 10-15 minutes from the town centre and the beaches, the area is quiet and suitable for all.

Vilamoura has a beautiful marina surrounded by various shops and many superb restaurants serving delicious gourmet food at reasonable prices. All restaurants we visited were superb (I can especially recommend the shellfish cataplana!).

There are also many other good restaurants around town priding themselves in always serving fresh food, and there are plenty of bars/cafes; some quiet and relaxing, others more lively.

The entire Vilamoura area is truly beautiful, and there is a small sightseeing train which is highly recommended giving you an overview and flavour of this wonderful part of the Algarve.

Although the nearest mini supermarket is only a few minutes away by foot, this is understocked and overpriced. It is worth walking a little longer to a proper supermarket - Jaffers - which stocks everything you need for the house. They also have a good deli with a good selection of meats and cheeses.

We found it very difficult to hire a car in Vilamoura at the time we were there, so I recommend this is done at the airport, or alternatively in nearby Albufeira (€20 by cab).

We all had a very enjoyable time, and will definitely return in the near future.

I can strongly recommend this property!

Excellent Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Had a beautiful relaxing 10 night stay at the villa 2-10th July, very nice, quiet location, but close to marina (10 min walk) would not hesitate to book again and the owner Pam was always available and very responsive if you required any info/help.

Wonderful villa in a super location!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely week at this villa. It had everything we wanted and more. The aircon in the bedrooms was most welcome as it was so hot. It was so quiet, most days we had the pool to ourselves! We had great communication with owner Pam and Armenio was on hand to help us with any issues we may have had. We shall definitely return again soon.

A great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 19 days at the Casa Linda and had a great experience. We used the city bikes using the bike cards that came with the place. We had a 15 walk to a fabulous beach and unlimited great restaurants. At the Casa Linda we had a beautiful pool pretty much to our selves. If you are looking to relax this is a great place close to all the amenities.

This property was spacious and well equipt.

  • 4 of 5

The property was within a comfortable 10-15 minute walk to the Marina with a large choice of restaurants and bars. It is necessary to hire a car to explore neighbouring towns & beaches. 5 min drive to local beaches with large car park. The accommodation was comfortable, spacious and bright and we made full use of the outdoor areas with the pool and bbq.

Brilliant Brilliant Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I read through all of the previous reviews and was still surprised how lovely the apartment was. It's location is great, less than 10 mins from the marina within a quiet complex of just 10 or so apartments. The apartment is very well equippped and very much like a home from home.

If you are considering, BOOK IT, you will not be disappointed!!

Vilamoura is one of the most prestigious leisure resorts in Portugal. As well as an award-winning Marina, Vilamoura is home to some of world’s best golf courses, outstanding leisure facilities, stunning beaches, nature trails and cycle paths.

 

What to see and do

Vilamoura Marina:  At the heart of Vilamoura, this stunning marina has twice been awarded the title International Marina of the Year. Day or night – there’s always a great atmosphere and plenty to see.

 

Golf until your heart’s content: If you’re a keen golfer, Vilamoura is the perfect destination for you. There’s a choice of six superb golf courses on your doorstep, including the championship Oceânico Victoria course – famous for hosting the Portugal Masters leg of the European Tour.  If you’re looking for a golf-themed family day out make sure Family Golf Park is on your list.

 

Celebrity spot: Vilamoura is popular with celebrities. Many familiar faces have been spotted around the Marina. Footballer Luis Figo owns Sete Café, and Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo owns property in the resort and you can visit this CR7 fashion shop on the Marina.

 

Try your luck:  If you’re feeling lucky, check out Vilamoura Casino, where you can play a wide range of table games such as Blackjack and Roulette, plus there are over 600 gambling machines. If you’re not a gambler, it’s still worth going along to experience the upbeat atmosphere, music and entertainment.

 

Enjoy the ocean: There are plenty of companies offering water sports and boat trips – from fishing charters and dolphin watching, to sunset cruises.

 

Eat, drink & be merry: From chic restaurants to chill out beach bars, laid back cafes and live music hot spots, there’s no shortage of places to simply eat, drink and enjoy the lifestyle.

 

Take advantage of the tennis facilities: Vilamoura has its own tennis academy offering tuition by experienced coaches. The academy boasts nine hard courts, four of which are floodlit, so you can play even when the sun has gone down.

Saddle up: Vilamoura Equestrian Centre hosts several equestrian events throughout the year - the Centre offers excellent facilities for both horse riders and spectators.

 

Get the ball rolling: Vilamoura Lawn Bowling Club is the European Leading Bowling Holiday Centre and welcomes visitors and beginners.

 

Enjoy live music: The Portuguese love live music and so do the Irish, perhaps that’s why you’ll find some of the best Irish music bars right here in Vilamoura. Every night is music night at O’Neill’s and there’s music most nights at The Irish Pub too.

  

Learn about the local history: A short walk from the Marina will take you to Cerro da Vila, where you can see an amazing archaeological site and museum.

Explore: Walking and cycling are great ways to explore the area. You’ll find companies offering bike rentals and Vilamoura operates a Public Bikes Scheme, with over 200 bikes that can be rented and returned to any of its 35 stations. I supply 4 cards to use these free bikes.

Where to eat

You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to dining in Vilamoura; from Thai to Tapas, authentic Algarvean to a traditional British breakfast.

 

Here are a few suggestions:

Quality and style

Willies – If you’re looking for an eatery that can serve up a gourmet meal, you’re looking for Willies. Experience Michelin star cuisine in an elegant and refined atmosphere. An excellent choice any time of year and superb on warm Algarvean summer nights!

Thai Beach Club - All day delicious snacks and excellent meals, with the best wines and cocktails.

 

Great for families

Capriccio - fabulous Italian restaurant and Gelataria, serving delicious homemade ice creams.

BJ’s Oceanside – offers a wide choice of dishes in the perfect setting for a long lunch or relaxed dinner, with live music Friday and Sunday afternoons.

O’Neill’s Irish Bar – a great place for lunch or a quick bite by day and a fantastic music venue by night.

Pão e Pão – Sample the best chocolate cake in the world and more!

NewsCafe – A superbly elegant restaurant, pizzeria and lounge bar - perfect any time of day.

 

Local services

Transport 

Taxis operate from official taxi ranks. There’s a rank outside the casino and one on Rua do Clube Náutico.. If you need transport to and from Faro Airport, I have a great contact that is very reliable and professional, Antonio.transfers@hotmail.com

 

The local council operates a loop bus route around Vilamoura and Quarteira called the Linha Verde (Green Line).  Buses run about every 30 minutes and you buy tickets from the driver.

Vilamoura has its own tourist train service, which operates from the beginning of March to the end of October. The tourist train starts at Praia da Marina (Hotel Vila Galé) and stops at several key locations. The service runs on the hour from 10am.

If you’d rather hire a vehicle, there are numerous hire companies offering good deals.
