Villas in Vilamoura

Vilamoura is one of the longest established resorts on the coast. Situated about 25kms from Faro Airport, it has a smart, vibrant marina, filled with boats and ocean-going yachts as its centrepiece. Around the marina are parades of shops, restaurants, cafés and bars overlooking the waterfront which has cocktail bars, Chinese food, pizzas, pancakes, burgers – there is even a Polynesian restaurant! During the summer, the marina has an amazing atmosphere and this is very much the place to see and be seen. Talented artists will paint a good likeness for just a few Euros, or you may prefer to stroll past the many opulent yachts. Beside the marina, there is a long, sandy beach. If you feel adventurous, there are boats to take you big game fishing or you can hire one for a leisurely trip along the coast for sunbathing and a picnic.

Vilamoura is perhaps best known for its top quality golf courses and with another at the nearby Vila Sol resort there are six within a very small radius. There is also horse riding, clay pigeon shooting, tennis, fishing, scuba diving and water skiing. Browns Health Club has aerobics, tennis, squash, a sauna, swimming pool and snack bar – temporary membership can be arranged locally. Vilamoura also has a casino, with nightly shows, and a cinema.

Pros: Perfect for families, with many of the villas close to the exciting marina. Also great for sport lovers, especially golf!

Cons: Tends to be very busy in the height of the summer and it is sometimes difficult to get tee times.
