In the heart of Vilamoura, this first floor 1 bedroom apartment with large south facing terrace is set in a popular well kept condominium in a quiet residential area in the heart of Vilamoura, with communal swimming pool and gardens.
The bright and air accommodation comprises, lounge with dining area and large feature fireplace, with direct access onto balcony, fitted kitchen, 1 bedroom, 1 recently refurbished bathroom and ample storage.
It has double glazing, built in wardrobes, log burner and the south facing terrace is large enough to house a dining area and sun chairs and overlooks the pool and communal gardens.
The three storey block is set in well kept low maintenance communal gardens, right next to the beautiful Vilamoura Zona Vida. It has a large communal swimming pool and underground parking space. It is close to all amenities, the beach and nearby golf courses.
Vilamoura has something for everyone to enjoy - there are boat trips (for those of us who don’t own a boat!), specially designed trails for walking and cycling and restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and budgets. Vilamoura marina is the main centre of activity with a huge range of restaurants, bars and shops (including many designer shops). Luis Figo's 'Bar Sete' (bar seven) is also on the marina front. During the day, although it can get quite busy, it's really a very peaceful area to stroll around. It gets more lively at night, with everyone coming to eat and try out some of the bars, but is still a very relaxed resort. Boasting a 1,000-berth marina, Vilamoura attracts the wealthy, yachtsmen, golfers, celebrities and in fact, anyone who just fancies enjoying a rather nice place in the sun!
Vilamoura golf has become world famous, and if you like golf, you will be pleased to know that there are several championship golf courses (all requiring handicap certificates by the way). For anyone who simply likes to go to the beach to relax, Vilamoura has two beautiful beaches, Praia da Marina ('Vilamoura Beach'), to the east of the marina and Praia da Falésia to the west. If you enjoy a walk, Praia da Falésia runs all the way to Olhos d' Àgua or stroll along Praia da Marina into Quarteira.
The resort is also home to Vilamoura Casino, which has regular evening entertainment, such as shows and dances, as well as the gaming rooms.
Broadband is widely available in Portugal and is known as 'banda larga'. It is considered to function better than broadband services in the UK due to the fact that Portugal was one of the last countries to embrace broadband technology and thus has a system with newer design and technology. There are several service providers offering ADSL, fibre and wireless services in Portugal to the residential and the professional markets.

An eclectic mix of world famous luxury resorts and traditional Portuguese towns, central Algarve remains the heart of the Algarve region with beautiful beaches and coastlines.
Central Algarve is home to the "Golden Triangle", a prestigious area between Faro and Albufeira, host to three world famous holiday and golf resorts: Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo and Vilamoura. These three resorts have cemented the Algarve's reputation as one of the best golf destinations in the world. Just as popular is the beach resort of Albufeira, which features vibrant wildlife and several gorgeous beaches.
Not just resorts and tourism, central Algarve is also home to traditional towns like Sao Bras de Alportel and Loule, which are popular with British ex pats. Just as beautiful is the Ria Formosa National Park, a natural reserve that extends from Faro to Tavira.
With a variety of well-developed resorts, central Algarve still retains its natural beauty and authentic splendour all across the region.
The beauty of the central Algarve region is in its accessibility from the Faro airport, with many of the main resorts and towns all within a 30-minute drive from Faro airport, one of the reasons the central Algarve is popular with families.
To reach Faro city from the airport it's a 10-15 minute drive or taxi ride, with the rest of the Algarve region opening up once you've arrived at Faro City's bus or train stations.
Receiving more sun each year than California, central Algarve is a hotbed for beach lovers, especially in the summertime. With fairly low wind speed compared to the western Algarve region, the summers in central Algarve are long and dry, with up to twelve hours of sunshine a day.
As for the winter months, temperatures sit at around 11°C to 18°C, making for a fairly warm winter season. The shorter days and increased rainfall will bring less sunlight, however, there are days in which temperatures reach as high as 20°C in the sunlight.
Ria Formosa National Park – It's no surprise that this national reserve was recently elected one of Portugal's seven natural wonders, with its spectacular coastal lagoons and wetlands making it a paradise for nature lovers and bird watchers. From guided walks to kayak trips through the lagoon, this national reserve has something for everyone.
Faro - The capital of the Algarve, Faro stands as a picturesque beach town which offers a brimming nightlife and historic Portuguese sights and architecture. From the well-preserved "Old City" and its cobblestone streets to the Faro Jewish Heritage Centre, you've got plenty of history to look at throughout the city. The multiple kilometre long Praia de Faro beach offers room for anyone to set a towel down and relax in the sun as well.
Central Algarve is the heart of the Southern Portuguese coast and is one of the most sought-after European tourist destinations. With a stunning national park and beautiful beaches just within a few kilometres of Faro, central Algarve is also home to a variety of small Portuguese towns if you're looking for an authentic Portuguese experience.
Since central Algarve is the hub of the Algarve you'll find a large range of available types of homes and property. From plots of land and luxury villas along the coastline to villas and apartments within the beach towns and fishing villages, Central Algarve is full of options. You'll also find a variety of fabulous villas and houses spacious enough for families and close to the many golf resorts, catering for families and golf lovers alike.
Some of the most popular places to live in Central Algarve include Vilamoura, Sao Bras de Alportel, Vale do Lobo and the prestigious Quinta do Lagos.
