Indoors & Outdoors


All the rooms in this apartment lead off the spacious central hallway which has plenty of room to park a buggy and young guests are welcomed by the toy boxes waiting ready for them when they arrive. The apartment is on the ground floor and with no steps inside so ideal for toddlers. The kitchen, living area and main bedroom all lead off the hallway to the left and open up with patio doors onto the terrace with views of the garden.  

The kitchen is bright and airy and a galley shape with marble worktops and all the appliances needed - fridge/freezer, electric oven, gas hob, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. There's a small table and chairs plus room for the highchair here too. It has plenty of storage and is very well equipped for a party of 4/5 with a good range of cookware and crockery and everything you would need for your stay. 

The living area is comfortably furnished with seating for 4/5 and dining area for 6, and plenty of space to play here with the toys on the play mats provided. The flatscreen TV has satellite channels and there's a DVD selection for kids as well as the toy box, so plenty of indoor entertainment options if you need to escape the heat. There's also free wifi.

The double bedroom is at the front of the property overlooking the terrace and gardens and has a double bed and large built in wardrobes. There is a shower room next door. The second bedroom is a twin just across the hallway at the back of the property which has room for a cot, plenty of built in storage and an ensuite bathroom. 

The apartment has air conditioning in each room including both bedrooms plus each also has shutters, so the heat of the summer can be managed very well and there's no problem in getting tots to sleep. The air conditioning system can also provide heating for those winter breaks. 

The owner provides a free welcome pack, can supply a baby pack on request, has a pre-cooked food menu on offer and can arrange English speaking babysitting if required.


One of just 27 in this complex, this apartment is located in a quiet residential area of Vilamoura, amongst similar apartment buildings, about half a mile from the centre of town. There's plenty of parking outside and the apartment is reached via the communal entrance with just one step up into the building and is then all on the same level.  

The apartment terrace faces south so is ideal for sun worshippers or there's plenty of space on the lawns or around the shared pool for sunbathing. There are sun loungers on the terrace as well as a BBQ, and dining table and chairs seating 6 in a shaded area outside the main bedroom, also a great spot for the kids to play outdoors. Doors from the kitchen and living area open onto the terrace making it great for alfresco dining and living. The terrace is walled and gated so children cannot enter the garden area unsupervised which is also securely hedged all around. 

The pool is set about 30 metres away and can be seen from the terrace so older children can still be supervised. There is a shallow end with steps down. It's a very family oriented location with lots of opportunity to meet up with other children. The owner has provided pool inflatables as well as bucket and spades and beach toys, plus beach/pool towels for all. 

The owner is an English resident who lives locally and she will meet you at the property and be your point of contact during your stay.

Parent points:

  • The railings on the terrace are wider than the recommended 10cm in places so we advise parents to supervise children whan they are using this area.

What's Around?

Vilamoura is a great family holiday location as so much is easily accessible and within walking distance from the apartment and the town is laid out with pedestrian walkways as well as cycle routes which makes getting about very easy. 

5 minutes walk from the apartment is the restaurant and bar at the Tennis Centre (which also has a good children's playground) and just further on at Park Amendoieras there's a choice of restaurants, bars and shops.

A further 10 minutes walk takes you into own centre with all the choice of restaurants and shops and entertainment you would need. Vilamoura Marina is a social hub and here there are bars, clubs, hotels, restaurants and a casino as well as plenty of fishing and boat trips on offer. Watersports such as parasailing, water-skiing, scuba diving and jet skiing are also available. And for the little ones 'Senor Toucan' is a new children's play park on the Marina offering all kinds of rides and activities.  

Portugal has many blue flag beaches and Vilamoura is no exception. The beaches which are a 2 minute drive or a 5 minute walk are huge and very well looked after  - closest to the apartment is the lovely, sandy Praia da Falesia which runs for 8km all the way to Olhos de Agua and has lots of beach bars, sun beds and umbrellas available for hire, watersports and plenty of parking. 

On the other side of town is Praia da Marina another large sandy beach which stretches all the way to Quarteira and has all the same amenities. 

Vilamoura is also known as the centre for golf in the Algarve and it has no less than 6 world class courses, open to all and club hire is widely available. 

The local cuisine is one of Portugal's best kept secrets and you can sample a huge choice of style of restaurants and food with something for everyone in Vilamoura. And the Portuguese are so family oriented that children are always welcome at the dinner table, whatever time of day or night!

You can have great family days out at the various water parks or theme parks in the area such as Zoomarine which also has attractions and rides suitable for toddlers, Aqua Show which also has birds and reptiles and a year round ice rink, or Krazyworld a theme park about 20 mines drive away. 

For Mum, Dad and Grandparents you could try one of the many vineyards and wine tours available for some more ‘grown up' time, or visit the Cerra da Vila museum in Vilamoura marina, an archaeological site unearthed during the construction of the marina, mainly consisting of Roman remains including baths, a mosaic and the foundations of some villas. 

If you need to escape the heat head up to the hills in Monchique where the air is cooler or the West Coast to explore its rugged coastline and surfing beaches. Inland from Vilamoura the rolling countryside is scattered with orange groves where you can explore more of the traditional Algarve, on mapped walks or bike routes, or visit the historical towns of Loulé, Silves and Alte.
