In and Around The Old Village, Vilamoura, Algarve
If you did not want to hire a car on your holiday you would not miss out on anything that you would expect from a great holiday. The Old Village complex offers three beautiful swimming pools to all who stay here. (Please note that there is a small charge for the use of the pool beds.) There is also a children’s playground and beautifully tended walkways and gardens to spend some quiet time.
You will be able to stock up on almost anything you need at the Old Village’s supermarket and there are various restaurants on site whether you want a quick snack or a more fulfilling meal. There is a bar with snooker/pool just minutes from the villa.
Just outside the complex and within walking distance, you will have your choice of visiting the local square where you will find more restaurants and bars and the local cinema where the latest films are shown in English. Walk a little further and you are at Europe’s largest Marina. Here you will find more nightlife with restaurants and bars and even a Casino. A visit to the Marina at night is a must where you can shop at Designer stores till late and just wander till your heart’s content all the while enjoying Europe’s finest climate.
It is at this Marina, you will be able to arrange a variety of water sports from sailing and windsurfing to paragliding. Or maybe go deep-sea fishing or dolphin spotting. You certainly won’t find yourself at a loss for things to do.
You will be set among the beautiful fairways of the Pinhal Golf Course with many other of the finest course in Europe a short distance from the Old Village.
A short car ride from the Old Village you will find the Aqua Show Water Park that is truly a fun filled day out. Buses from the waterpark do pick up and dro p off at at the Old Village.
There are local markets in Quarteira and beaches are all within walking distance.
You will need a car, or a taxi, to get to either The Forum Shopping Centre in Faro (near the Airport) or to Guia Shopping near Albufeira. Both are open-air centres with multi-screen cinemas and Bowling (in Guia).
Albufeira is also very close by car for some more extravagant nightlife on the main strip.
Rest assured, whatever you are looking for on your holiday, be it rest and relaxation, beach and nightlife, sports, shopping or sightseeing, you will not be disappointed. And staying at the Old Village will give you access to all this without spending your holiday in a stuffy car getting back and forth.
We were a party of 10 and rented the 5 bedroom property for 5 nights over the May half term. From the time of booking, up until departure, communication with Yvonne was fantastic. Any query I had was dealt with efficiently and she even arranged for us to have access to the property much earlier than normal as we had an early flight which was great. Yvonne and her husband had a welcome pack of goodies for us on our arrival (beers, biscuits, tea and coffee) which was a lovely touch.
The property was great in terms of size for our group and the location leading to the pool couldn't of been better. The Old Village complex had numerous cafes, restaurants and bars to cater for all your needs along with a supermarket which stocked everything that was needed. We went to the marina each evening which you could walk to within 15-20 mins or a taxi would cost about 5 euro.
Would definitely recommend and will be booking a return visit soon.

On arrival at the Old Village we were impressed with the presentation of the complex, very well tended gardens and spotlessly clean. Yvonne was out of the country so we were met by Emma, earlier than we were meant to check in, who was very helpful. Everything was as wed imagined it to be and the house was ideal for what we wanted. I dont think you could get a better location for families with small children, with the living room / dining room backing onto the main pool area. That coupled with the roof terrace were 2 of many highlights for us. Only one suggestion, some of the plastic patio furniture is getting a little tired and brittle as we discovered but other than that an excellent family base to explore Vilamoura. Will return in the future hopefully.

Just as described, lovely decor and spacious. Owner was more than helpful and on hand after missing our flight from Stansted. A much needed welcome pack in house when we arrived. Hope to return again.

We have just returned after a fantasic week at this villa. There were 8 people in our group ranging all ages.
The setting of the villa in the old village is perfect.. 10 steps from the garden and you are in the pool. there is a pool bar which proveds good value drinks na food. If you prefer you can sunbathe in the garden or on the roof terrace.
If you prefer 10 steps from the front door is the O Cafe providing breakfasts from 9am (english breakfast with tea, coffee or juice just 5 euros) lunches and evening meals. There are a few other places to eat and drink.
For 4 euros you can jump in a taxi and go the the marina which is always a delight to return to.
All of our group agree that we have had a fantastic holiday in a fantastic villa and will be returning.
Finally a big thank you to yvonne for arranging the transfers, welcome pack and always available for help and advice.

This property was booked as a surprise by my partner for my 40th Birthday for a girly get away.
10 of us arrived on 3 Sept 2010 and we certainly werent disappointed. The property was clean, modern and very spacious. All the bedrooms were light and airy and each bathroom was finished to a high standard.
The patio area was large enough to seat 10 people and there was a gate that led you from the patio to the pool area.
The pool and surrounding area is very clean and there are enough sun loungers (although there is a small charge for these).
Having stayed at the Old Village the previous year I knew my way around. The complex itself has everything to offer, there is a supermarket on your doorstep and enough bars and restaurants to choose from if you decide not to go into Villamoura.
Villamoura is a 10 minute stroll or you can catch the little train from the Old Village that takes you on a small tour and down to the Marina!
The Marina itself is busy with many restaurants, bars and shops. There is also a fabulous beach if you fancy a lazy day.
All in all the property, complex and resort was an excellent choice, and I know that I will return to this beautiful villa and complex for many years to come.

The property was in an Excellent location very close to all tha amenties of the Old village it was also very clean and tidy. And only short walk to the Marina and centre.
Although it could have done with having some mirrors in the bedrooms as when you are sharing there was only one mirror in the bathroom.
Overall an excellant holiday.
