Walk through the garage and exit via a door beside main garage door into the pool area. The pool is serviced by communal toilets and showers and there are communal sunbeds (yellow and white) available to all apartment Users. The pool is one of the largest outdoor pools in Vilamoura and this is really appreciated as there are only 16 apartments in the complex. There is also a kids paddling pool.
Refuse points are accessible at the back of the complex and re-cycling is available at the bottom of the road from the apartment block, beside the main roundabout.
When you enter the apartment, you will be immediately impressed by the space in the apartment. The large hall area gives a wonderful airy feeling.

The casino offers great shows and great fun for those who like a flutter. The local water-park is ideal for kids and adults alike.
If you like golf you are in Heaven, the apartment is directly opposite the Laguna, Millenium and Victoria golf courses. The Old Course and Pinhal courses are less than a mile away.

Golf prices in Portugal can be expensive, so if you are interested in playing golf the best guy to chat to is Andy Willmott (+351913922707) he operates a discount golf service for Vilamoura and runs a golf society for 3 local bars (Atlantic, Pacifico & Oscars), he runs 2/3 outings a month across the best courses, his website is http://www.andygolf.co.uk/ Contact Andy directly, visit his website or call into the Bars and chat to Al (Pacifico) or Seamus (Atlantic). You can hire clubs from the Airport from €35 a week, I use Paul McGinleys service http://www.clubstohire.com/paul.php, alternatively you can hire the clubs on the course, normally between €20-40 a round.

The apartment is a 40 minute walk to the Marina, or a 5 minute drive. Taxis are readily available and cheap, circa €7 to/from Marina. All in all a truely wonderful place to have your holiday
We stayed in this Villa from 25th July - 6th August 2014 as a family of 5 (3 Children). The Villa was just perfect for us it had the space we needed, the facilities and was a great place to stay and base ourselves. The pool is large and great for all age ranges with a relaxed environment to play in, sunbeds provided and even toilet facilities near the pool too so you dont need to go back up to the Villa, great when you have little ones. Not only was the Villa extremely clean and well appointed / kept but also the communal areas and gardens. We hired a car for the holiday and parking was never a problem, the drive to the Port of Villamoura was 10 Min away, Beach about 8 Min, Water Park 15-20 Min Max we really were well located. With such short distances to key locations you could managed using local services and/or Taxis also. I really do recommend a stay here its a great place and we had a great holiday.

The is a great well kept apartment in an ideal location. We stayed with you children and thought the facilities were excellent.
