About Marc and Linda McColgan
Marc and I live in Scotland with our 2 daughters. We both work, but spend our holidays in Portugal, where we have made many friends and have really fallen in love with the country.
Marc and Linda McColgan purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Marc and Linda McColgan chose Vilamoura
We love Vilamoura because it is such a fabulous resort with fantastic facilities and friendly people. There are some beautiful beaches and the marina boasts a great range of bars and restaurants. As for the golfers out there, you couldn’t ask for more! There really is something for everyone here and the climate is perfect all year round. The area is easily accessible with Faro airport less than half an hours drive away. It is also just five minutes drive, or a pleasant walk, to the fabulous marina and wonderful beaches.
What makes this Apartment unique
The property has two outdoor pools, tennis court and ample gardens for sunbathing. If you're looking for a home from home then you have found it in our delightful apartment. We particularly enjoy dining outside on the large balcony after a day in the sun. The marina is perfect day or night with a great selection of restaurants and bars. Why not do a spot of people watching whilst enjoying an ice cream along the way! If you like to get out and about and explore the local area then we have years of experience and knowledge of the tourist spots for all ages, tastes and abilities. Whether you want to golf, swim with dolphins, ride rapids, see historic sites or find the best supermarket or restaurant, then we’ll happily share our experiences and make recommendations to you. Just ask us.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Excellent apartment. Very clean and Isabela was great, showing us around the apartment and letting us know good places to eat and also providing us with taxi numbers. It is a very quiet area which is great and the pool area is fabulous especially for just relaxing. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and couldn’t recommended Marc and Linda enough as well as Isabella. Very friendly people who were great to book our stay with. Look forward to coming back in the future.
Many thanks for your comments and kind words Eohgan. We always do our very best to make sure that the holiday experience for our guests is the best that it can be. Thank you for highlighting how good the pool area is - having spent many days relaxing there myself, I quite agree. You have been excellent guests and we would love to welcome you back again soon.
É um apartamento com todas as comedida des, cozinha completa, ar condicionado, grande varanda e um excelente espaço verde com piscinas, campo tênis, e uma grande zona com relvado e espreguiçadeiras. A zona envolvente é muito sossegada. Existe um pequeno supermercado a 500 mts. No entanto para ir para o centro Vilamoura é necessário transporte pois fica a 4 KMS.
Obrigado Miguel. É um prazer tê-lo ficar conosco e seus comentários sobre o apartamento, o complexo e a área circundante, descreve com precisão a nossa casa de férias. Muito apreciado. Linda e Marc
Thank you Miguel. It is a pleasure to have you stay with us and your comments about the apartment, the complex and the surrounding area, accurately describes our holiday home. Much appreciated. Linda and Marc
The perfect relaxing holiday
Great apartment. Fabulous gardens and pool. Lovely weather. Totally relaxing. Vilamoura is the best place to dine and people watch! Just what a holiday should be.
Great apartment. Very clean and with everything you need. A lovely home from home vibe 😄
Very efficient booking via owners who were very helpful and answered all questions before visit. Meet and greet service with local lady on our arrival was great. Apartment was brilliant with amazing pool and gardens in a totally quiet and relaxing, modern and clean apartment block. Now for the negative stuff: No English T.V. channels. We don't go on holiday to watch tv but we do like to keep in touch with the news and sport. Just a bbc news Channel would be a welcome addition. We were aware in advance of the apartments location as we are fairly familiar with the area and we don't mind walking but even we were getting fed up with the 55 minute walk to marina and 25 minute walk to nearest shop by the end of the week. You really do need bikes or a car for this apartment. We would use again but look to organise bike/car rental in advance. Other than these points we would definitely reccomend 😄
Glad to know you enjoyed your holiday and found the booking and arrival processes ideal and the apartment and complex to your liking. Sorry you were disappointed about the lack of UK TV. It isn't something we generally get asked about as most people keep up to date with news and sport from home on line. As for getting about, on foot and by taxi works for many of our guests but we hire a car ourselves when there and recommend this in our advert. Sometimes, even if you don't use the car very often when in Vilamoura, it does help to have it for a quick trip to the supermarket or to get to the beach etc.
Your comments are appreciated and we would hope to welcome you back again soon.

Great apartment, had everything we needed.
Lovely homely apartment with everything you need. Came home with clean washing thanks to the washing machine. One thing I would say if you're thinking of staying is hire a car as it's a little bit too far to walk into the centre of Vilamoura or do what I did and download the uber taxi app on your phone, loads cheaper for taxis. Apart from that the complex is very clean and the pools and garden are so well looked after. Thanks to marc and Linda for letting us stay in your apartment and thanks to Isabel for showing us around when we got there. The Wilson's.
Many thanks Anthony for your comments. Glad you found the apartment and complex to your liking. The gardens are great, aren't they? It's always a pleasure to spend time there soaking up the sun!
Hope we will see you back again soon.

Just come home from this lovely appartment. It's definately home from home.
Very clean, well equipped apartment. Plenty of room for 4 of us staying.
Lovely pool area, didn't get round to using the tennis courts.
Would definately stay again. Maybe for longer next time. Isabel was lovely and met us quite late after our flight to let us in and show us round the appt.
Thank you Mark and Linda too for being so helpful.
Hi Paula. Thank you for your kind words. Isabel is a star isn't she? Glad that you all had such an good time at the apartment. We hope to see you back again soon.
