Beautiful Home From Home!


By Donna M on 24-Aug-2017

Really enjoyed our stay here perfect for family of four - 2 adults and 2 kids ages 5 & 3. Apartment inc kitchen so well equipped. Fab array of dvds and kids books for when we needed to retreat back home from one of the many pools in the complex to escape the midday sun for lunch.

Car recommended for large supermarket nearby and visiting beautiful Vilamoura and local beaches.

The cleaner is such a lovely person even though we landed a little early for check in she sorted us out no bother.

Thank you for a fabulous stay!

A Beautiful Well Appointed Apartment, Located In A Lovely Resort


By Donal H on 27-Jul-2017

Thanks to Andrew, we had an excellent stay at his lovely apartment in the extensive Vila Sol resort - a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The location is within easy reach of multiple golf courses (check each for different deals - juniors pay €1 on some courses!! if accompanied by a paying adult), many restaurants and other activities. We benefited greatly from hiring a car (which was relatively cost effective too), and allowed us to explore the area with ease. Andrew's recommendations for restaurants in the area - were very good. The huge waterslide park, Aquashow, is located very close by (2 km) and is really excellent. The apartment is complete with everything one might need - including a juicer to use with the oranges you can buy on the side of the roads (what a morning treat!) - an esky box for taking to the seaside - flatscreen TV with every channel (including RTE!) and a huge selection of DVDs available for viewing. I would recommend this apartment without hesitation.

A Lovely Week Away In This Immaculate Apartment!


By Katherin K on 24-Sep-2015

The apartment felt like home from home but with better weather! It was exactly as described - or probably better in fact! It was very clean and well maintained. The owners, Andrew and Karen, couldn't do enough to help us and ensure we had a good time. We will definitely recommend it to friends and family and plan to return ourselves. Definitely need to hire a car but there are shops and restaurants in easy walking distance. Particular restaurant favourites were BJ's Oceanside on Amargen beach - exactly like the Winking Prawn in Salcombe but in a better climate!! In fact it is run by a young couple from Salcombe. We also enjoyed the Wine Bistro and the golf clubhouse for a leisurely lunch overlooking over the golf course!

Fantastic Family Apartment, Vilamoura, Portugal


By The 0 on 23-Jul-2015

We stayed for a week and our only regret was we did not stay for longer. This apartment is well situated and is very child friendly our 1 year old and 5 year old were well catered for by the attention to detail in providing everything necessary in this home from home. We particularly liked the safety modifications to the balcony. In addition the on-site swimming pools and public areas were well maintained and very safe for children and the policy of not being allowed to put towels out on sun beds etc ensured there were always beds available. When we did not go into Vilamoura we had several meals in Oscars and found both the food and standard of service to be excellent. We hired a car for the week and would recommend this to anyone booking the apartment, but others we met during our stay were able to get around using local taxi's which are inexpensive. Last but not least the owners of this property have left no stone unturned to ensure that our holiday was enjoyable,happy and stress free, we would certainly intend to go back, if they'll have us.

Beautiful Apartment In A Great Location


By Emma M on 08-Jul-2015

The apartment was beautifully decorated and very clean on arrival. We have a small child and everything we needed was available and easy to use. The complex is lovely with beautiful grounds to walk around and had everything we needed when relaxing by the pool. Thanks to Andy and Karen with all the help and directions we was able to easily find the beach, supermarket and Villamoura port. These were all only a short drive away. I would definitely return to this apartment and also recommend it to other families.

Simply Stunning Apartment And Location


By Anthony M on 11-Jun-2015

If you are looking for the wow factor then a stay here needs to be ticked off the to do list. The apartment itself is spacious, clean with all the homely touches making it second to none. The apartment is within easy access to great bars and restaurants. The swimming pools located in the grounds is a nice place to chill out and relax. The bars located within 5 minutes walking are a great place to unwind and meet fellow holidaymakers. With wonderful golf courses on your doorstep this makes it such a fantastic place to stay.

Beautiful Family Apartment


By Karte C on 30-Jul-2014

This apartment is truly stunning, perfect for families as every possible requirement has been carefully considered and catered for. The apartment itself is very spacious and immaculately clean. The kitchen is well stocked with all necessary equipment should you wish to cook in! Its also extremely comfortable and does not feel like a typical holiday rental. Villa Sol is a superbly well kept resort with beautiful grounds and again immaculately clean and very peaceful. We arrived with our boys aged 10 and 7 and they had simply the best holiday not only because the apartment had everything they needed but also with the lay out of the resort it enabled the children to have independence but safely as all the pool areas and grounds are gated with security tags. Would highly recommend for families or couples. Our first visit to Portugal fell in love with the country and would certainly come back to this apartment. The owners really care that all their guests have a fantastic holiday!

Beautiful Spacious Apartment, Stunning Location


By Tanya C on 01-May-2014

We have just returned from an absolutely wonderful week at Karen and Andrew's gorgeous apartment. It was spacious, well equipped, tastefully furnished...just perfect.

It was our first family holiday with kids (aged 3 and 4) and we were a little dubious as to whether we'd get a chance to relax at all, but because it was like a home from home, we all settled into the break instantly. The kids loved the Vila Sol resort with its various pools and beautifully manicured gardens, and the closest beaches were only a five minute drive away, so we visited a different one every morning and they were stunning. Golden sand stretching for miles, very quiet, extremely clean, we couldn't have wanted for more.

Vilamoura itself was a perfect holiday destination, clean, pretty, lots to do and see, a gorgeous marina, perfect beaches, we were really taken with the area.

There were lots of areas of outstanding natural beauty closeby too, we can't wait to return to find more hidden beaches!

The apartment itself suited us perfectly and happy children = very happy parents. Roll on 2014, we can't wait to return!

Excellent Apartment


By Claire & Andrew on 23-Apr-2014

It was our first visit to Portugal and the apartment was excellent. It has a very homely feel and was great for our 5 years old son. He loved the pools and the proximity to beaches and local attractions was great. There is a great file in the apartment giving details of local attractions which was great and very useful. There are also some great local restaurants serving excellent food.

Absolutely Fabulous!


By Stu & Nicky Field on 06-Dec-2013

We have stayed at Vila Sol many times and this has been the best visit to date. This was helped by the apartment being far superior than many others we have stayed in. It was truely immaculately clean and looked brand new. The owners have gone to great lengths to ensure we had a fabulous stay. The apartment was beautifully furnished and had lots to keep our children occupied. It is also the first apartment that provides a detailed directory on the owners favourite places to go/eat out & beaches to visit. This ensured we had an even better time visiting some fabulous places to eat and catch a few rays (even in December). The owners even provided their discount cards for the hotel bar/restaurant which saved us a fortunate. The private grounds are stunning and large with lots of greenery and well maintained. Surprisingly it was warm for the time of year so we even managed to go swimming in one of the heated pools which was beautifully clean. I loved nipping down to the local bakery first thing in the morning, when the sun was shining and buying the days freshly baked croissants and Portuguese pastries for breakfast. Gained me lots of brownie points!! We are a family with 2 young children and a teenager and we all had a fantastic holiday & Xmas away. The booking process was seamless and professional. We will definitely be booking again very soon.

Beautiful Apartment On A Stunning Resort


By The Castles on 11-Jun-2013

Our first visit to Portugal and first proper holiday in a long time and we are so pleased we booked Karen and Andrew's apartment as it did not disappoint!

A really well-equipped, comfortable, beautifully furnished and perfectly-maintained apartment on a fabulous resort in the heart of the Algarve. Plenty to do and see nearby and such an easy and quick transfer from Faro airport. Stunning sandy beaches within 5 or 10 minutes. Even during one of the busiest weeks of the summer holiday, the resort did not feel overcrowded and there was always space by one of the pools for all the family. Children aged 7, 9 and 12 had a ball - as did us parents! A brilliant information pack in the apartment full of everything you needed to know about the resort and surrounding area. Great restaurant and beach suggestions from the owners and the guest book - some within walking distance of the apartment.

A really happy, relaxing, fun holiday - we would highly recommend this apartment to all our family and friends. Our thanks to Karen and Andrew for all their efforts to make our stay so enjoyable in their home from home apartment - we would love to return one day!

Great Family Apartment, Vila Sol, Portugal


By Alison G on 24-Aug-2012

A great holiday in a lovely spacious apartment on the Vila Sol complex. The property was extremely clean and well equipped and contained everything you could need - microwave, dishwasher, juicer, inflatables for the pool, etc. Our children (9 and 6) had a great time playing with other children in the pools or playing on the spacious lawns. The nearby beaches were fabulous and uncrowded even in the height of the summer. We found some super restaurants nearby (most taken from the comprehensive guest directory in the apartment) and the children loved the waterpark just 5 minutes drive away. Andrew and Karen were brilliant at responding to our queries and nothing was too much trouble. My only worry is that too many people will get to hear about this apartment and it will become overbooked!

Highly Recommend


By India S on 11-Oct-2011

We spent a brilliant half term week at Andrew and Karen's apartment in October 2011. The weather was simply glorious and a real treat given autumn weather in England !

The apartment is very spacious, beautifully decorated, and had everything we could possibly want in self-catering accommodation. The resort itself is very well maintained and the kids loved the pools, jacuzzi and outside space. Vilamoura and Vale de Lobo are very close by and had everything we needed to entertain ourselves and the kids. We found some super restaurants, some were recommended (there is a very comprehensive directory in the apt), others we stumbled across ourselves. I can't think of a bad meal we had whilst there. We do love Portugal and this location particularly suited us. We will most definitely return.

Best Apartment & Perfect Location...


By Nicki & Dean on 15-Oct-2010

The apartment was truly splendid - extremely spacious with ample, comfortable and modern furnishings.

Set in a quiet location yet minutes from local amenities, restaurants and of course golf, there was simply nothing that could be faulted. In addition, the south facing balcony was a pleasure in early morning as the sun appeared.

Highly recommended, with very attentative owners ensuring the booking arrangements and associated paperwork was a doddle.

Lovely Apartment In Vila Sol Resort


By The Dunns on 08-Oct-2010

Lovely 2 bed 1st floor apartment set in the Vila Sol Resort in the Algarve. Had everything we needed (e.g. kitchen equipment, etc) plus some added bonuses (e.g. beach toys, kids books, board games, PS2 with games, DVD player, Sky Sports on TV).

The apartment overlooks the swimming pools and is therefore only a 2 minute walk. The clubhouse is 20 mins walk away so we always drove as a long hike with golf clubs and plenty of parking.

Beach was about 20 mins drive away and was great. Vilamoura Marina is 10 mins drive away which was handy for eating out.

Stunning Apartment In An Excellent Location!


By Louiseb21 on 02-Sep-2010

Just returned from a relaxing week stay at the beautiful Vila Sol, the only down side was only booking a week as we did not want to come home.

The apartment is beautifully decorated, is spacious and clean and in a fantastic location not far from the stunning Vilamoura marina with all its lovely bars and restaurants. The apartment has all the equipment and appliances you require and more!

Vila Sol is a great resort for families with young children as it is so safe. All of the three pools and garden areas are enclosed by gated fences. My partner and I always felt our 2 year was never far, but had enough freedom to roam safely.

All in all a great stay and will be recommending Vila Sol and Andrew and Karen’s apartment to all our friends and family!

BEAUTIFUL APT- They Have Thought Of Everything!


By Ideolexplorer on 02-May-2010

We have returned from the most wonderful relaxing break from this high spec apt. It really is a home from home! The owners certainly have high standards and an eye for detail. The apt was immaculate, this included the kitchen and all the equipment - how often have you arrived in self catering accomodation and had to clean everything before you use it - well that won't happen here! Our 5 year old daughter loved the books and puzzles which was a extra touch and very much appreciated.

The complex was very quiet and beautifully maintained. The balcony over looked one of the 3 swimming pools, which are set in gardens with pine tress for welcoming shade. The pools were open 8am-8pm and were never busy. They are accessed through a security gate so only those staying on the complex could use them and we felt very safe while staying at the apt and while out and about in Vilamoura. Vilamoura as a resort is very well maintained,

While not overly adventurous in our week we did visit the private beach which is only for customers staying within the Sol Complex. You will need a car, as it is a 15 minute drive, but well worth it. Sun loungers and umbrellas were free and we had the pleasure of a having the beach almost to ourselves, it was great for collecting shells, starfish etc, we felt like real beachcombers, which our daughter loved.

We also ventured to the local beach about a 6-7 minutes drive, which was very safe for swimming and miles of very clean sand. The marina which is only 5 minutes away, with plenty of places to eat and nice in the evening to wander around. Lastly we visited the water park only 3 minutes drive, which was not cheap, but made for a fun day out.

Would I recommend this apt? Yes very much so, it was home from home.

Who would I recommend it to? Couples and families who want a relaxing break, in a high quality apt, but also a high quality, well looked after resort, with restuarants and beaches within easy reach

Would we go back? You bet - can't wait!

Thank you letting us use your apt.

Vila Sol Apartment: Property 93288


By Dale H on 23-Oct-2009

An excellent, 1st floor apartment with lovely grounds and gated swimming pools.

The drive from Faro Airport took about 25 minutes. A little tip – Vila Sol was not recognised by our Sat. Nav. as a place, but was found in the Places of Interest section under Golf Courses.

The apartment itself was bright, airy and a pleasure to walk into following the journey. A lot of the furniture looked quite new. There were two good size bedrooms one with an en suite.

The railings on the balcony had been protected against small children climbing through so the apartment seemed very child friendly.

There is a Supermarket and several good restaurants within walking distance from the apartment. We tried several recommended in the Apartment Information and Visitors book, but in truth we didn’t have a bad meal anywhere during our stay. Vilamoura Marina was only a 5 minute drive away which has dozens of restaurant.

Look out for Marufos 1 and 2 (not sure that is the correct spelling) on the way to the Vila Sol beach. Marufos 2 is very good and the locals eat there. Also the restaurant on the roundabout as you leave the Vila Sol towards Quartera, La Paisegm

The Spa is excellent for a bit of self pampering and also has a ladies hairdressers.

I don’t play golf myself but it was great watching from the clubhouse bar (the food there is also very good).

The local area was great to explore. There are plenty interesting small villages to see and Faro Old Town is also well worth a visit. The Market at Loule was really good.

There is a Water Park near Vila Sol (although we did not get to it) and Zoo Marine (which we did). Zoo Marine is close to Shopping Algave. As we are a little passed our sell by date we also went to Cliff Richard’s Vineyard, which is beautiful and just behind The Shopping Algave complex.

The beach attached to the Vila Sol Complex is about a 10 minute drive away from the apartment, but well worth it. It is set in an area of natural beauty so you drive down an unmade road for about half a mile before you arrive. The sand seems to go on forever and, because you are allowed to use the apartment cards, the sun beds were free (presumably during season only). There is plenty of parking and three good restaurants (nothing else thank goodness). We did find other nice beaches, but of course you pay for the Sun Beds

All in all a great apartment in a great area. We will certainly be going back.

A Week In Paradise


By Porsche911 on 01-Apr-2008

Our family holiday to the Vila Sol was just what the doctor ordered. Amazing pool set in well kept grounds.

A round of golf is a must as is a long lunch on the sun deck at the wooden shack restaurant on the beach if you are looking to experience well priced Portuguese cuisine at its finest !

A week to remember!

Great Apartment, Especially If With Young Children


By Ruth And Richard on 21-Dec-2007

We had a fantastic week in December. The apartment couldn’t have been better. Especially as we have two young children (3yrs and 9 months). It was so nice to find a child friendly place, and owners! All the essentials were there from highchairs to children’s stories. It was so peacefully quite and we had the pools to ourselves most days. We would highly recommend the apartment and thank to Lomax’s for making everything so smooth and easy. Thank you Ruth and Richard

Superb Accomodation On High Quality Resort


By Kooky on 19-Oct-2007

We found this apartment to be spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The owners have made a huge effort to make this a 'home from home' with really pretty accessories and a modern tasteful decor. Apartment was really child friendly which made our stay much more relaxing. Vila Sol itself is a great resort with pools, spa, kids club and golf. We saw the beginnings of the supermarket being built at the entrance which seemingly will be ready for Summer 08. That will be handy as the small complex will include a few new restaurants etc.

There are tons of beaches a short drive away and Vilamoura Marina is a great place to have a walk and a meal. We tried a several local restaurants - our favourite was Marufos which was so cheap and the food was great. My husband loved the golf course and the driving range and we had super lunches at the Clubhouse. One thing to note that this particular apartment gave us their owner discount cards as part of our stay. This meant we got discounts on golf, spa and meals. We met other couples staying on the resort who hadn't heard of these cards, so it seems not everyone gives them out.

We would recommend to either families looking for spacious, stylish accomodation with all mod cons or golfers looking for a relaxing break in the heart of 'golf country' !

PS - Weather was fab too !
