Vila Sol

Set amidst 75 acres of attractive scenery, villa holidays in Vila Sol serve up the Algarve’s greatest assets on a  platter. From famed golf courses to luxury spas, delicious cuisine to sandy beaches, you’re guaranteed a knockout Portuguese holiday package at this recently-built resort. 

Our apartments and villas in Vila Sol have all the first-rate facilities you could wish for. With sparkling swimming pools and en-suite bedrooms to welcome you, you may never wish to leave the development! 

However, Vila Sol’s excellent location is yet another of its selling points. Close to the buzzing marina of Vilamoura and a stone’s throw from Quinta do Lago’s exclusive shops and restaurants, it’s also an ideal base from which to explore the Algarve coastline.

Portugal’s southern coastline is a short drive from Vila Sol’s holiday homes. Within 10 minutes you could be scrunching the soft sands of Quarteira beach between your toes. Cafes dot its western edge, but further east nature takes over with vibrant red cliffs forming a picture-perfect backdrop.

From here, the decision is yours. Follow the ribbon of coastline down towards the peaceful shores of Praia de Loulé Velho or Praia de Vale do Lobo. Alternatively, for a beach with added buzz, head back to Praia de Vilamoura. It’s slightly more lively and the sheltered waters are perfect for family paddles. 

One of the Algarve’s best-loved beaches, the vast Praia de Falésia, awaits just the other side of Vilamoura Marina. Come for the water sports, stay for the endless sea views.

If your idea of holiday heaven is a villa close to the golf course, you’re in luck. Vila Sol boasts its very own 18 and 9-hole courses, complete with superb facilities and tree-lined fairways. 

Close by, other famous greens like Victoria and Millennium golf courses are the gold standard of European golfing breaks. When you’re not getting your putt on, pamper yourself silly in the on-site spa or practise your serve on the full-size tennis courts. 

Beyond the resort, the well-heeled seaside town of Vilamoura is your go-to for white-knuckle water sports and the opportunity to ogle millionaires’ yachts in the marina. Or, step back in time with a day trip to Faro. The bird’s eye view of the city from the top of Faro Cathedral is unmissable.

Quirky markets, designer stores, epic malls – whatever your retail tastes, you’ll satisfy them in the shops close to Vila Sol. Quarteira’s Wednesday market is a must for bargain-hunters, where tourist-friendly stalls proffer azulejo tiles and cork souvenirs at knock-off prices. For a more authentic shopping experience, visit the splendid municipal market at Loulé. 

A range of boutique stores and restaurants (post-splurge snack, anyone?) encircle Vilamoura Marina. Mar Shopping, on the other hand, is one of the largest shopping centres in Portugal and its 82,000 square metres are chock-full of high street brands. And a cinema. And a mini golf course!

For a home-cooked meal, Pingo Doce supermarket is close by and well-stocked with grocery products.

When you’re not cooking up a feast in your rental villa, sample the restaurants close to Vila Sol. After a rip-roaring round of golf, refuel with a fillet steak or truffle pasta at Wine Bistro, overlooking the greens. Next door, Vila Sol Caffé is great for a quick brekkie or afternoon sangria in the sunshine. 

A wide range of restaurants, spanning friendly sports bars and traditional Portuguese restaurants, await on the road between Vila Sol and Vilamoura. Whether you’re hungry for a seafood spread or prefer a taste of home with a full-blown Sunday roast, there’s an eatery to suit.

Vilamoura’s dining scene is equally versatile. Classy eats abound next to the glitzy marina, while relaxed cafes like La Creperie are best for fresh, fuss-free lunchtime snacks.

Inviting beaches and balmy temperatures have sealed the Algarve’s status as a family holiday favourite. Our apartments and family-friendly villas in Vila Sol have everything you need to make the most of this idyllic region. 

Villas, ranging from four to seven bedrooms in size, feature private swimming pools and interiors with oodles of room to stretch out. Some properties also brandish bonus additions the kids will love. After all, who can resist a fun-fuelled games room or splash pool?

Holiday apartments in Vila Sol also suit outdoor-loving families. Not only can you dip into the communal pool, but your private terrace comes with its own set of sun loungers. After firing up the barbecue, savour your meal in the al fresco dining area with views over Vila Sol’s grounds.
