Great holiday at Praia Village

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment based on the excellent reviews it had, & we were not disappointed. The apartment is just a short walk, or even shorter drive, from Vilamoura Marina & beaches, so is very conveniently situated. The apartment itself is modern & comfortable, & was spotless upon arrival. It has every facility you would need on a self catering holiday including washing machine & dishwasher. The complex has a really good sized pool, with adjacent children's pool, and plenty of sunloungers for everyone. The gardens & pool are very well maintained & it's a very nice environment to relax in. Vilamoura is the perfect holiday location - short flight, short transfer, fantastic beaches, impressive marina with bars & numerous restaurants, & the resort caters for all ages. It's also very convenient as a base to explore the rest of the Algarve. The UK based owner provides excellent customer service, supported by Karen who lives nearby & both were nothing but helpful before, during & after our visit. I have no hestitation in recommending this property for your stay in Vilamoura.

Our second visit and just as good as the first!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, very well equipped, modern furnishings, lovely grounds, great pool for kids. Perfect location being quiet, yet only 15 minute walk to the harbour, with shops and supermarket even closer. A great place for a relaxing holiday where the kids can still have fun and with lovely restaurants and bars a nice walk away. Our second visit, we will be returning again and would definitely recommend.

Excellent stay in a comfortable apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Hello Mark,

We are back in France after two lovely weeks in Vilamoura.

Your apartment and its environment correspond perfectly to the description that you gave in.

It was spotless and met our expectations.

No problems with the equipments, that were all in excellent condition.

So a very good impression.

Some suggestions:

1 In good weather, we used to take our meals on the terrace. The outdoor table is a little 'tired'. A supple and washable tablecloth would be good.

2 We only had a general map of the Algarve. It would be useful to find in your apartment, a Vilamoura / Quarteria plan that allows us the first day to orient ourselves more easily. For example we have not managed to find the tourist office.

Some informations for golfers:

We played 6 times the nearest golf courses (Oceanico Millennium and Laguna - 3km, Pine Cliffs between Vilamoura and Albuferia - 6km, and Salgados west of Albuferia -20km).

Prices are quite high but if you play in the afternoon (twilight optional) you pay ½ price, what becomes very interesting.

The Balahia be avoided except for beginners.

In conclusion excellent stay in a comfortable apartment.

Thank you Mark

Much enjoyed our Portugal holiday

  • 4 of 5

Although initially a little dubious about staying in a ground floor apartment, my wife and I found it to be a very convenient location for quick and easy access to the grounds, pool and gated exits. The apartment itself was very clean and presented to a high standard with all appliances in good working order and easy to use. Our overall impression was of a homely and friendly atmosphere pervading the complex making it a relaxing place to stay. Vilamoura harbour shops and restaurants are just a 15 minutes walk away. We will definitely be making a return visit.

Another great holiday at Praia Villege

  • 5 of 5

We visited this beautiful apartment in July 2014 and absolutely loved it. The cleanliness of the apartment was first class, it has all the amenities you could wish for and more.

The surrounding gardens, pool area and area outside the complex is picturesque and it is just a short walk (10 mins) to the Marina and beach. There is also a small complex (approx. 5 mins walk) with restaurants and shop which is great too.

The correspondence from Mark (the owner) in advance of our holiday and the details left in the apartment is really detailed and comprehensive, which was extremely useful. Mark also arranged transfers from the airport with a company that had excellent service, which was very much appreciated.

We would definitely recommend this property to others and will be visiting again in September 2015

The Algarve, situated in the south of Portugal, is an ideal location for a wonderful holiday for all ages. It offers practically year round sunshine and boasts some of Europe's best golf courses. Vilamoura is the tourist resort par excellence. The biggest private holiday development in Portugal has golf courses, a wide range of other sports facilities and an incredible marina with a variety of entertainment. Falesia beach: This is the closest beach to our apartment. When not enjoying the wonderful Algarve sunshine or wandering along the shore, more active visitors can stimulate their adrenaline with sports such as windsurfing, water-skiing, jet-skiing or just relax pedalling a pedalo, fishing or enjoying drinks and snacks in the bar along the beachfront. The colourful shop windows are an invitation difficult to resist. From well known international trade marks to the regional and rustic shops, you can always finds the right gift for that special someone.

Other Activities: Zoomarine, Slide and Splash Aqua Park

Golf: The Algarve is renowned for some of the world's finest championship golf courses. Each of the five, 18 hole courses are superbly designed with the par 72 Victoria Golf Course which opened in September 2004, having been designed by Arnold Palmer. It had €18 million invested in it making it one of the best and exclusive complexes in the world. These attract dedicated players and champions worldwide — and are host to numerous prestigious tournaments, several televised. If you're a keen golfer, Vilamoura is the place to be. Four of these courses were the first to be officially recognised for their dedication to preserving the environment, having received an ISO 14001 certificate in 1998. An award of which Vilamoura is very proud — the first environmental certification given to a golf course operator in Europe. Each has its own driving range and a prestigious clubhouse and Vilamoura itself offers a dedicated golfing academy with full teaching facilities, a driving range and a 3-hole practice course to help all levels of players. Vilamoura is a true golfer's paradise, with all five championship courses in the close vicinity of the apartment. Quinta do Lago Golf Club and Vale do Lobo Golf Club are also very close by and are within driving distance. We can put you in touch with agencies to accommodate your golfing needs and discounts.
