Why Paul R Butler chose Vilamoura
We looked at many apartments when we decided to buy, this had local amenities very very close by, including 2 excellent portugeuse Restaurants and two bars. the walk to the beach is lovely, however the little train passes a few meters from the end of our road, so getting into town is easy, we usually stroll down to the Marina, and get a taxi back.. We love Vilamoura, and are constantly finding out new things about it, and new things to do.
What makes this Apartment unique
The balcony is a wonderful place to watch the world go slowly by, and is a great place to chill out. The pool is small, but there are only 5/6 apartments in Edificio Baltarik, so usually its like having a private pool, only overlooked by the apartments, so great for children. The area is very quiet, and well established, but just a few metres away is the lovely restauant Chez Carlos, and we have equipped the apartment comprehensively as both my wife and I are keen cooks.

Great location the apartment in so well equipped .
Had a really good stay in the apartment . Really enjoyed it . Bit problem with WiFi and tv but we got it sorted after a few days. I think there could be more towels and beach towels just a suggestion . Would stay again and recommend the apartment
Had a lovely time in Portugal, made even better by staying at this appartement. Carlos was very nice and helpful. Very spacious rooms, very clean. Very quiet, Shops and a couple of restaurants just across the road. 20 minute walk to marina. Would definitely go back and stay at this appartment. 👍🏻
Totally recommend this lovely apartment
Never having been to Portugal, I wasn't sure what to expect. But this is a true case of "it does what it says on the tin." The booking process was easy, the managing agent greeted us on arrival and we were provided with clean linen and towels mid-stay. The apartment is super....well equipped with attention to detail. Centrally located and within easy reach of the supermarket, restaurants, beach and Marina. We loved it. The fact that whilst we were there, we booked to go again, should tell you all you need to know.
Dear Rosie, thankyou so much for your lovely review, we do try to think of everything, and we are delighted that you rebooked and are staying with us again. See you in October, when you will see a different Algarve, still beautiful, but with shorter days you may get a chance to try some reading or DVD's.
A very well equipped home from home in a lovely location
The apartment is literally across the road from two lovely, very reasonably priced restaurants, Chez Carlos & A Carpo, a supermarket, a cocktail bar & an amazing breakfast bistro (fab sausages) which we visited every day!! It's a lovely walk down to the marina and/or beach (beach is stunning) but the best part was the owner subscribes to the Vilamoura bike system enabling visitors to the apartment the option of using a bike & cycling instead. We used the bikes almost every day at no additional cost. The owner Paul, and his representatives, could not have been more helpful during our stay. Will definitely return and recommend to friends & family.
We really enjoyed our time here. Nice apartment about a twenty minute walk through a nice park to the marina.
Carlos was very helpful and arrange transfers which were cheaper than a taxi, Paul the owner was very efficient with the booking etc.
We will be back and thanks again to Paul and Carlos, all the best
Steve and family
Steve was a late booking, but our agent sorted everything for him, so pleased that his family all had a great time, we are already taking enquiries for next year, so would love to have you back soon, maybe for a longer stay?
Paul & Carlos
Vilamoura is the name given to an area rather than to any actual town. It is one of the largest single tourist complexes in Europe and covers some 2.000 hectares of land. The apartment area is near to Falesia Beach, and Nature reserve, as well as the Marina, making it ideal for both sunbathing and bird spotting. Close to the towns of Faro, Albufeira, Loule, and Quarteria, Vilamoura is bursting with sporting and leisure facilities (Tennis, bowling, waterskiing, scuba diving, golf, horse riding) for the whole family. It is a place for rest and relaxation but also for pursuing active pastimes and sports; with its huge marina and watersports facilities, a friendly and safe residential haven, but also a vibrant and exciting night-life centre, with a host of attractive waterside restaurants around the Marina, and in the town. Apartment Agave is a serviced apartment, in an established location close to the homes of the resident population, It is Portuguese, but also truly cosmopolitan
Other Activities: Bird watching
Golf: Some of the best golf courses in the Algarve are in and around Vilamoura, its a Golfers paradise, with a range, and 5 golf courses within a few minutes drive of the apartment (or for the more sporting, a short walk to 3 of them) Pinhal, Millennium, Victoria, Old Course, and Laguna, with a bit further away Vila Sol. There are numerous golf agencies who can arrange low cost course fees, and there are various shuttle buses and taxis to take clients to the course if walking and driving are not an option
