About Patricia Roberts
My husband and I are retired and live in Norfolk, which is a lovely area of the UK. We have a large family who have all enjoyed the benefits of our holiday home in the Old Village and continue to do so.
Patricia Roberts purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Patricia Roberts chose Vilamoura
I was introduced to, and fell in love with, the beautiful surroundings of the Old Village by friends who have had a holiday home there since it was first built. In 2003 I was fortunate enough to be able to purchase the apartment. It has been well used by family and friends over the years and my husband and I have enjoyed our long visits at different times of the year. We have made a number of friends in the area, of various nationalities, either visitors like us or permanent residents. These friends have shown us parts of the Algarve and the Alentajo region, away from the tourist areas, that we would not have explored on our own.
What makes this Apartment unique
When we are staying in the apartment in the warmer months, we love to have our breakfast outside on the south facing terrace. Depending on the time of year there are Swallows swooping about the gardens, Blackbirds and Hoopoe's looking for worms or Storks gently circling in the sky. The 3 swimming pools on the complex provide relaxation or exercise, plus fun for the children. During the cooler months we make good use of the woodburning stove which heats the apartment very efficiently. We collect pine cones from around the local golf course to supplement the logs that we buy from the supermarket. The apartment has been completely refurbished and has air-conditioning. Now that we are becoming a little less mobile, we are thankful that we have a ground floor apartment!

Lovely property in a great location
Our second year staying in the old village,, this apartment was lovely, right by the supermarket. Apartment was clean and well maintained. The owners left some items eg soap, detergent which was really appreciated.
A wonderful few days in Old Village
The property is ground floor with a lovely private garden. It felt as if we were at home, so many excellent touches, little things such as a huge range of books, DVDs and CDs, an excellent TV with many stations available, very well equipped kitchen, comfortable double bed, plenty of storage. We enjoyed a couple of barbecues in the warm evenings. Many excellent bars and restaurants nearby. Altogether, a most enjoyable stay in superb surroundings.
Thank you for your excellent review. As the apartment is also our family holiday home, we have made it a comfortable & welcoming place to be enjoyed by our rental guests too.
Fab family villa
Our second stay and loved it again. Great location and villa for our family break in lovely Vilamoura. Everything we needed in the villa, great facilities in the Old Village and close to great beaches and restaurants.
Excellent apartment in beautiful and well located setting.
We enjoyed a fabulous holiday in this Old Village apartment. The complex offers excellent facilities on site, is well maintained and conveniently located. Apartment is ideal for a family of four; is well kept and includes all the required mod cons. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will hopefully return again soon.
We had a wonderful short stay in Patricia’s lovely apartment. It was spotless and had everything we could have needed. Patricia had thoughtfully arranged for the heaters to be put on for our arrival.
We would definitely stay again.
