Apartment in Vila Sol, Vilamoura, Central Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location Close to Golf Club and International Hotel
I live in Northern Ireland with my husband and 2 of our 4 children. My husband and I both work but love to holiday in Portugal. My husband is a keen golfer and the whole family enjoys the sun, the good food and reasonably priced wine as well as the relaxed way of life on the Algarve.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Owner chose Vilamoura
We love the Vilamoura and Vila Sol area because of the climate and the beaches as well as the many other facilities which are always improving. My husband has 27 holes of good quality golf within easy walking distance and many other courses are close at hand including Quinta do Lago and Vale de Lobo. The local marina is a lovely spot for eating and relaxing and other good quality restaurants are within walking distance of our apartment.
What makes this Apartment unique
The balcony and sun roof of the apartment over look the swimming pool. The local supermarket is within walking distance with a bank and a number of shops and restaurants as well as an English style pub called Oscars in the vicinity.

Relaxing break away
Great central location
Nearly at the end of the summer season and shouldn't have been noisy. Glad you had a relaxing break. Hope to see you again in the not too distant future.
Great Apartment in a Great Location
Just returned from a wonderful stay at this very clean, spacious, well equipped apartment with a Large Sun Terrace above. In a great location on Vila Sol Golf and Spa Resort, overlooking the beautifully manicured gardens and swimming pool area with toddler pool. Just a short stroll to the Club House and hotel with spa, restaurant and bar, which we enjoyed.
Only a short drive to Vilamoura Marina which has lovely shops, restaurants, bars and water sports. Some of our group went Parasailing and we all went on a boat ride to see the caves and Dolphins which we all enjoyed, including our 2 year old granddaughter. Staying at this apartment, we were able to visit many places including numerous beaches, Lagos Zoo, a Winery with wine tasting, the Old Town area of Faro and Loule market.
Many thanks to the owners, Richard was very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. He provided us with all of the information we needed to have a relaxing stay.
We Highly Recommend this apartment for a relaxing stay in the Algarve.

Great place, good location and a good example of the rentals available here!
With our family having stayed at the same complex a number of times previously, I can safely say this is a great example of the properties available. It was in good conditions with plenty of amenities that were in great condition. The owner was very helpful and accommodating and we can thoroughly recommend it to anyone considering this area.
Very pleasant stay
Had a lovely holiday in this property, it has every amenity you could ask for, the large terrace is a great place to spend the day. A larger parasol would be a good addition.
A larger parasol will be considered for the future. A previous large parasol was replaced after fair wear and tear by the current smaller one with a view to ease of movement.
Very nice condeminion and apartement and children friendly
Had a great time. Extremly nice surroundings and the apartment had everything we needed.
The owner was nice and friendly to comunicate with.
We will be coming back.
Fantastic spacious apartment in a peaceful and relaxing location
Aside from one small glitch around our arrival date (resolved within the hour) we simply could not fault this property. So much room, air con, well equipped kitchen...amazing balcony and roof terrace space...perfect! The pool area was clean and spacious - half the time we had it almost to ourselves - we especially loved being able to swim up til 11pm when it was dark and the area beautifully lit.
There is a small supermarket about 10 mins walk away - note that if it’s as hot as it was when we visited it’s a bit of an effort but you can easily get an Uber to Pingo Doce, a bigger one just a few mins drive away. Vilamoura marina is also a quick Uber away, and a lovely place to stroll along in the evening.
We had a fantastic time, there were some kids for our 11 year old to play with and if your idea of hell is a noisy, crammed, touristy resort then this is the place for you! We’d go back in a heaetbeat!
Vila Sol has its own private beach and is just a 15 min drive away. It offers beach restaurants, water sports, children’s activities and a crèche facility. Vilamoura beach is only a 5 min drive away. The gentle sloping beach of Quarteira is less than 5 mins drive away and is excellent for young families.
Faro airport is only a 15 min drive away. Car hire is recommended but taxi hire is readily available and inexpensive. Leaving Faro follow the signs for Portimao and Albufeira until you get to Almancil and then head for Quarteira and Vilamoura. Turn right at the Vila Sol roundabout after the Aquapark. Public transport is frequent and also inexpensive. Both Easyjet and Aer Lingus provide daily flights to Faro from Belfast International but many other UK airports also offer regular flights to Faro.
Vilamoura with it’s marina, shops, restaurants and bars is approx 5 mins by car, as is Quarteira. Almancil is less than 10 mins by car. The market town of Loule is just 10 mins drive. A large aquapark is 3 mins away by car and Albufeira and the Zoo Marine is approx 20 mins away. The Vila Sol Spa is a 2 min walk from the apartment.
At the entrance to Vila Sol resort there is a retail village including an ATM, an English pub serving food, restaurants, coffee shop and other shops. Quarteira is a 15 minute walk away with lots of shops and at least one chemist. Whilst no phone is available in the apartment, internet access is available through a Sunset Villas local wireless network which will cope with email and basic requirements.
