About Ian Fraser
Married with twin boys and the whole family are Vila Sol fanatics.
Ian Fraser purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Ian Fraser chose Quarteira
Our family have been visiting the Algarve for 20 years and Vila Sol has been our regular spot for the past 16 years, since the first phase opened. Over the years, the place has got better and better with the new supermarket and restaurants opening. Oscars bar is a fantastic place to relax and watch any sporting events then take in live music. The owners and staff are fantastic and nothing is too much trouble. All of these amenities are within a 2 minute walk of the apartment which was the main reason we chose to purchase here. We hope, make that believe, you will get the Vila Sol bug once you have been.
What makes this Apartment unique
For us, the ground floor walk out access to the pools is absolutely vital as using the gates and keeping keys etc can be cumbersome.

A beautiful apt with a bful view. Very clean and everything in it thst you would need. Beautiful resturants on site.There is a little town Quateria which has a beautiful beach and promenade, ust about 2.5 miles easily walked too or can go by taxi. We walked into Villamoura also such a beautiful Mariina along with beautiful resturants. You definitely need a car or go by Taxi if youre looking off the complex. Ownerrs Ian and Maureen really helpful and accommodating. Thankyou so much . We thorougjly enjoyed our stay xx
Absolutely loved it !! - Exactly what we needed.
Awesome !!! We arrived and met Hanna (a God Send). Beautiful property, tranquil, beautiful view, safe secure surroundings. Property was gorgeous, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, fridge freezer was fixed while we were there, I was even able to bake my sons 13th Birthday cake, and we were able to celebrated in style. Local amenities were perfect and a short drive down to the beach was awesome. Children loved it !! And so did I. - Thank you so much for the home comforts, we would definitely loved to book again. - 12 out of 10 !! Thank you Ian for you outstanding communications and updates. Once again all the help Hanna gave to us whilst we were there - an emotional thank you from my family and I. Perfect !! Just Perfect !! - The weather was outstanding . . for Dec / Jan I was told, it was 17 to 20 degrees during the day - we left with lovely tan's for this time of year. Thank you. x
The apartment was ideal for our short break. The amenities both in and outside the apartment are perfect. the owners Ian and Maureen are to be complemented for creating a lovely home from home environment. Ian's communication and hospitality were amasing, and I can only thank him for the timeous emails and information. Anyone staying here could not fail to enjoy the surroundings and the comfort of the apartment. Although some 3 miles from the marina resort we found little or no need to leave the complex, what with the Oscars sports bar and the few lovely restaurants such as Moon and Wildfire *the latter was a little pricey but a culinary delight, and a great breakfast in another named the Caffe' our 4 days could not have been better! oh and the golf was good too! Hopefully Ian one day we will return to your lovely apartment and once agian thanks for having us, it was perfect!
Thank you very much John. Your very kind words are very much appreciated and we look forward to welcoming you anytime in the future :-)
A beautiful apartment
Everything went very smoothly from communicating with Ian (the owner) who sent all the details that we needed to access the property and lots of info about what was about and around. The apartment lacked for nothing it had it all from your knives and forks to a washing machine, dryer and even a dishwasher not that we used that as the wife already has me as a dishwasher LOL. We did have an issue with the TV but a quick call to Ian got that sorted. You have two bedrooms one is ensuite and they are both a good size so if you are two couples or a family with a couple of kids then you will have ample room. Would I stay here again, you bet I would everyone we met was friendly and a lot of the Portuguese people we found spoke very good English so that was a bonus as I can get along a little bit in that language but I am in now way fluent. The area was lovely and quiet and places like Lagos were within an hour or so's drive, I would definitely recommend a visit to the nearby town of Loule which has actually retained for the most part the old world charm of a town that has not given in to too many modern apartment blocks and has a great little market on a Saturday and is not to be missed and neither is the Sunday Market in Vilamoura where if you haggle you can get a great deal. One guy was trying to sell me a jacket for 125 euros and he eventually came down to 40 euros so it is worth the haggle.
So if you want a peaceful rest or just a great family holiday the this is the apartment to go for in this area.
The property was exactly as described
Had a great time and would not hesitate to book this apartment again
Excellent apartment in a lovely Complex,
Stayed here at the beginning of October Would highly recommend,, the apartment is absolutely lovely, great for couples or families. It has everything you could want in a holiday home. All of the beds were really comfy giving a great nights sleep. The apartment overlooks 2 of the 3 pools, the main one is heated, all 3 are well maintained. If you have children the WiFi is great, even when outside. Great communication with Ian, and on site house manger excellent when we need her help. It’s a great base for getting out and about. Would definitely stay again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Thanks Ian for a lovely, enjoyable and relaxing stay. The Kelly’s
