About Tim Collard

Tim Collard, I live in Suffolk, England with my partner Donna and son Danny. We grew up in North London predominantly, however, early life spent in and around Gidea Park as my parents owned a shop there. I work in Local Government services.

Tim Collard purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Tim Collard chose Portimao region

We bought the property as we love this part of the Algarve. We have holidayed elsewhere, doing the long haul etc. However kept returning to the Algarve. Love the restaurants and bars in Alvor and Lagos and as my Portuguese improves little discoveries further in land in the Alentejo region. Just 2.5 hours from most UK airports a fantastic little escape from the stresses and strains of British life.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the sense of space the apartment offers and with 2 bathrooms invited guests never feel on top of each other. The closeness of Portugal to the UK and increased reasonable fares from the budget airlines made this very atractive. As an example if we catch the early flight at 7:00 AM from Stanstead or Southend we will be in the apartment by 11:00AM a quick trip to the supermarket and the rest of the day spent lounging by the pool. Golf is close by and as a keen golfer we have the pick of the Algarve from this location. The beaches are some of the most beautiful I have seen.

Fabulous apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 10 day holiday in Tims apartment! Before we arrived Tim was very helpful via email & gave us all the information we would need including great directions to the villa!

The Villa itself had every home comfort you could possibly need, all kitchen utensils & appliances, including a large fridge freezer. BBQ and lovely garden furniture, was great to have a garden to sit in of an evening. Plenty of English tv channels (helpful for our daughters). Great aircon in both bedrooms & living area! The Villa is a short walk for the fabulous pool area, swimming pools were perfect. Large outdoor pool as well as a large indoor pool, which surprisingly we use quite a lot when the sun got too hot. Also a lovely jacuzzi for the adults! A great children's pool which was actually not too shallow, our 7 year old daughter could easily swim about while still being able to stand up. The pool bar was brilliant, it's English owners couldn't be anymore welcoming! The food was lovely and the evening meals & entertainment was a complete winner....we had a BBQ evening with music & a karaoke night with amazing home cooked Thai food, our daughters really enjoyed it & also playing pool & table football!

Portimao itself has lovely beaches, we went to 3 different 1s but would highly recommended Carvalho beach which is a small picturesque beach with calm clear waters about a 25 minute drive from the Villa.

We spent evenings out in Alvor, lovely traditional cobbled streets with small amount of shops & lovely restaurants!

Vilamoura, pretty marina with lots of restaurants.

Our favourite was Lagos, traditional cobbled streets with lots of shops, tasty restaurants, street entertainment & singers!

Overall we had a fab holiday & would definitely recommend going here!!!

Lovely holiday

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was in a quiet residential style development, with a small private garden to rear. Living/dining area and bedrooms were decent size. The leisure facilities were about 2 minutes walk from the apartment. Good pools and no shortage of poolside loungers, with secure access. On-site cafe serving drinks, snacks and (limited selection of) evening meals was great, particularly because the complex is not really within walking distance of other facilities such as shops and restaurants ...car is ESSENTIAL if staying here (although if you just want to relax by the pool and not go too far, then you could have an enjoyable time). Good tennis courts , easy to book, although it was mostly too hot to take advantage of this....Weather fantastic. Alvor really nice with super beach and lots of nice restaurants, a good 10 minutes drive. The Portimao shopping centre, about 5 minutes drive from apartment, was good, but Portimao town was a bit of a letdown (maybe we didn't find the good bits?!). Praia da rocha very high-rise and much more commercial than Alvor. Overall we had a lovely time and enjoyed the friendliness of the Algarve people, the wide selection of good restaurants, the blue skies, and the scenery/ beaches etc. The apartment with the nearby leisure facilities was a good base. Thanks!

A great apartment for relaxing or exploring Alvor and the surrounding areas

  • 5 of 5

A comfortable and well maintained apartment ideal for our family of 4. We enjoyed the facilities of the Oasis Parque (which are also well kept and maintained) and also driving further afield into Alvor and the surrounding areas. The apartment had everything we needed and as we already knew the area it was a great base. Thank you Tim & Donna.

Great apartment in lovely condition and a good location

  • 5 of 5

Arrived late and met at the apartment by a lovely lady. Apartment has everything you need with all mod cons including air con, cable TV etc. Location wise the apartment is great with only a short walk to the pool and tennis courts. The supermarket is a 10 min walk (for a bigger shop we walked to and taxi back for €6). We stayed in most evenings but portimao and alvor are a short 15 min taxi ride away (approx €10 - €12). Tim (owner) and Anita (local contact) were easily contactable and very helpful.

All in all lovely property, great location, good price and trustworthy owner. All you need really for a great holiday.
