This is our holiday apartment enjoyed by all our family when time allows! The property has been in the family since 2008 and we are all happy that we have been able to explore one of Portugal's best known areas.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Owner chose Vilamoura
We feel the property is well situated; close enough to be able to take an evening stroll to the marina area, the main hub, containing an extensive range of restaurants, bars and music to enjoy an evening meal or even a show at the casino, yet it's far enough out of the centre to be able to enjoy the tranquillity the condominium has to offer. It also offers some peace of mind knowing the condominium is gated, entry is only by the electric gates. From the raised balcony, which is far enough not to be on top of other people, you can view the communal pools and garden areas while keeping a watchful eye on the younger members of the family or just look over the proceedings of the day! The apartment is quite spacious and you have the ability to move to the rooftop terrace to get away from it all, peacefully take in the sun or relax in the hot tub. For those looking for a little more adventure there are many beach related activities where you can enjoy paragliding, sailing, surfing, swimming, jet-skiing, fishing or even SCUBA diving. It is also close for all your golfing needs with fantastic courses all around, water parks for all the family, not to mention the nightlife. This apartment is just perfect place for unforgetable family fun, a romantic getaway or a warm weather holiday with friends!
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment has a large private rooftop terrace where you can get away from it all day or night, were you can dine alfresco while barbequing on the outdoor grill, perfect for those evening sunset meals under the pergola, or while away the time relaxing in the hot tub.

Fabulous stay. Lovely spacious rooftop to enjoy the setting sun/BBQ/Spa Pool and relaxing drinks.
Clean and tidy. Lovely pool, in beautiful grounds. Secure parking. Good TV and Wifi. Short walk (or taxi) into town to marina for evening. Loads of restaurant choices. Just everything as we wanted.
We loved everything about our stay! The penthouse has everything you need! We had breakfast at home most mornings and used the rooftop bbq several times during our stay! We enjoyed the hot tub and hanging out on the balcony in the evening. My kids appreciated the boogie board that was there for use at the beach! While we had rented a car, we could easily get an Uber on evenings when we went to the marina and wanted to have a few cocktails. We can’t recommend this place enough!
Always a pleasant brake forth time of staying in this apartment and will be back again soon.
Clean tidy and always a great retreat and will be returning.
