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!

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!!

OK but could have been better!

  • 3 of 5

I will start with the Negatives shall I?, Constant barking of local dogs, under the flight path of every plane out of Faro airport, Freezing

cold swimming pool, same towels for nearly 2 weeks and not even basic cooking or cleaning items provided. e.g. dishwasher, washing m/c. etc.

Bathrooms in need of refurb, on the plus side it was mainly quiet overnight with all the windows shut! also within walking distance of beach, marina and shops. Lots of TV stations but not many in English. All in all just about adequate but did hope it would have been better.

Owner's Response: Hi Christopher, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review as they are always valuable and enables me to improve the property in any way possible. I am sorry that your experience was not as satisfactory as I would have liked and herewith follows my response to all your points: It is the first time that I hear about the dogs and plane noise and the area is renown for being peaceful and quite. Most of the surrounding villas are used as holiday homes and not permanent residents. As far as I know, there is no plane noise problem in Algarve at all unless you live by the airport. The planes to/from Faro approach and takeoff are as often as possible out to sea (safety and noise reasons) and the two runways are orientated east west, so it is normally from the Spanish (East side of Faro) side. Vilamoura is West of Faro. Most usual pattern is an approach from the North passing a beacon at Paderne (still at high level) losing height in a big loop out to sea and then turning in again for final approach over Faro Island, so does not fly over Vilamoura. Places in Algarve sometimes affected by plane noise during unusual wind conditions are in the Eastern edge of Quinta do Lago and some areas of Faro city itself. Faro is also a very small airport and there aren't jumbo jets flying in, just the smaller jets. Not sure if during your stay for some reason it was necessary for the planes to take a different route. Unfortunately the pool is not heated so in October it's already Autumn and the water is cold. There should have been basic cleaning products and I will take this up with the cleaning service. I am sorry about this inconvenience caused and as a small gesture will compensate you for 40£ for the cost of products. If a client stays 2 weeks there is a cleaning service provided after 7 days and your stay was for 9, hence this was not provided. The TV package is an International one and offers programs in all languages to cater for all my clients (German, Dutch, French), English channels are about 15, I will contact the provider to see if possible to increase this number. Thanks for your feedback regarding the bathrooms and I will look into this. As I strive to have happy clients I do hope to be able to host you again in my property so you can have a better experience. With kind regards Pam

Ideal!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a lovely short stay at this Townhouse - five of us went for a long weekend in Vilamoura and it was ideal with the three bedrooms and bathrooms (five women trying to get ready to go out!). Lovely and spacious, very clean and tidy, everything you need. We were also lucky enough to have the complex to ourselves for the weekend, so it felt like our own private pool too. Just a 10 minute stroll down to the Marina, so lovely and quiet and relaxing during the day, but close to all the bars and restaurants in the evening without the need for a taxi/driving. Thanks to Pam too for her help in answering our questions before we went. We also used Antonio for transfers, who was excellent and I would highly recommend. I would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation.

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.
