About Vincent Mirner

Welcome! We are an Irish couple that hail from Cork. We first went to Old Village five years ago with our two year old son and haven't been able to keep away since! We couldn't resist the urge to buy our place when it came on the market and we now spend all our holidays there with our ever increasing family (now three children).

Vincent Mirner purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Vincent Mirner chose Loule region

We love our apartment and the complex because of the great times we have there. We enjoy all our meals al fresco and love trying out all the local fresh fish on our barbeque. We stroll around the complex in the evening just to admire the stunning landscaping and to hear the crickets and the birds that really let you know you're on holidays. It's really child friendly and our kids enjoy the playground and spend most of the day in the swimming pools. We find the Portuguese very friendly people and they love children. There are several long white sandy beaches close by and an amazing marina just fifteen minutes walk down the road where there's a wide variety of shops, restaurants and bars.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is on the ground floor and very accessible. It's a popular spot for golfers with five championship courses in the immediate vicinity. There are a number of local agencies where tee times and club hire at discounted rates can be booked and there's a European tour event played every October on the local Millennium Course. The complex is close to waterparks and Zoo Marine (which is a great days entertainment for all ages with dolphin shows, water rides, a funfair etc). Boat trips and fishing excursions can be booked from the marina.

Map

Coast/Beach:

The surrounding beaches are beautiful. A blue flag beach called the Falesia Beach is 15 minutes walk or a 5 minute drive away. You can also get there by a road train that stops at Old Village and services both the marina and the beaches.

Travel:

Faro airport is 25 minutes drive by car. Airport taxis cost approx €35 but we have found a number of on-line pre-booked airport transfer companies charge approx €9 per person (resorthoppa.com).

Good apartment in Villamoura

  • 3 of 5

Well located apartment in the Old Village complex. The apartment was reasonably well equipped but in need of some tlc, missing lampshade, only 1 (broken) sun lounger, stained cover on settee. Overall we enjoyed our stay and it was good value and comfortable. Very good location with bars, restaurants and shops nearby. 3 Pools onsite with controlled access. 20 minute walk to the Marina or shuttle train.

In desperate need of modernisation.

  • 1 of 5

Apartment dirty, sun lounger broken, a rusty floor height metal grid as a bbq, desperately tired apartment in need of modernisation. Missing lights, broken fan and broken bin, inadequate kitchen equipment. Bathroom in need of cleaning/replacing. Such a shame as it is in a perfect location with beautiful surroundings. We advised property management at the old village of our findings but nothing was done to rectify what we found.

Had a lovely stay. Will hopefully return in the future.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of three really enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. The two double bedrooms were plenty room enough for us.

The kitchen was also great with pretty much everything you could ask for.

Seating arrangements were also great in the lounge diner and on those rare moments when we just chilled the tv etc was just the job with lots of channels. Shower was good and there was a bath if needed.

Outside there was a table and chairs and one sunlounger.

A 15 -20 minute walk and you are at the marina but plenty to do at The Old Village if you don't want to venture far. Also a great private Drs close by too.

We love The Old Village. It is kept beautifully clean and the grounds are stunning. Hopefully we will return next year.
