Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Our beautifully appointed apartment is ideally situated right in the very heart of Vilamoura. The property was completely renovated last year to a very high standard. Everything in the apartment is new. It is very quiet and peaceful, yet centrally located between all 6 championship golf courses, just a 20 minute walk to the lively marina (and a quick and cheap taxi ride back again if required at the end of the evening!).
The wonderfully sandy beach is less than a 30 minute walk or under 5 minutes by car (there is plenty of parking at the beach). There is a supermarket just a couple of minutes walk from the apartment, and additional shops, bars and restaurants just another minute or two further. A tourist road-train runs past the apartment to the beach and the marina.

Outside there is a large terrace with reclined lounging chairs and a dining table and chairs. The terrace is surrounded by a wall and is therefore very safe for families.
This apartment i underwent a full renovation during 2009 and therefore is in immaculate condition. There are brand new bath/shower rooms, new kitchen, new flooring (inside and outside on the large terrace) and all new furniture throughout. All crockery, kitchen utensils, bed linen, etc is also brand new. A large air conditioning unit was installed in 2012 which also doubles as a heater.
The apartment can sleep up to 4 people. One bedroom has a lovely king-size bed, whilst the other has two comfortable single beds. To maximise the use of space, all of the beds have space underneath to store luggage.
The apartment is equipped with an LCD flat panel TV. Reception is via satellite with English as well as Portuguese and other European channels. We have also provided an Xbox together with a selection of games in order to entertain the kids and adults alike (we have even provided Tiger Woods PGA Tour for the golfers amongst you!).

The apartment is set in beautiful gardens that are maintained to a very high standard, together with a lovely large and peaceful swimming pool. There is also a small, shallow pool for young children. For safety reasons the swimming pool is fenced in and accessed via a secure gate to prevent young children from straying into the pool.
The Algarve region
The Algarve is the southernmost region of mainland Portugal, enjoying 155km of south-facing coastline. The Algarve is a popular destination for tourism, primarily because of its beautiful beaches, lovely Mediterranean climate and excellent golf courses.
The weather is the Algarve is particularly good, with mild winters (ideal for all year round golf) and very warm in the summer (without it getting too uncomfortably hot as in some other southern Mediterranean destinations, therefore making it ideal for families).
Vilamoura is located just 20 minutes drive from Faro airport. Covering some 20 square km of land, it is one of Europes largest tourist beach and golf resorts. Almost every kind of sport and entertainment are on offer, including six magnificent golf courses, sports clubs, a shooting range, night clubs, a casino, several first class spas and numerous restaurants and vibrant bars.
Vilamoura mainly consists of private villas and apartments, and the few hotels typically cater for the higher end of the market, thus, whilst lively bars and night-clubs can be found, Vilamoura does not suffer from the same 'lager-lout' reputation that plagues many other resorts in the Algarve and southern Spain.
Amongst the many attractions and facilities there are six different golf courses, a large marina, a lawn bowling club with two grass rinks, a tennis centre, a sports club, a shooting club, 5 Star and 4 star hotels, tourist apartments, self-catering villas, night clubs, an international casino with glamorous shows, a cinema, several spas and an excellent riding school. Within the centre of Vilamoura there is a preserved Roman site and museum providing an interesting glimpse into the past of the area. In Roman times this location was important in producing a fish paste known as "garum". The ruins also include the baths in which the mariners used to bathe.
As a location specifically designed for tourism it has proved to be a very successful holiday destination for all ages due to the variety of facilities that it provides holidaymakers.
