The local airport is Faro, which is well served by budget and scheduled airlines from all over the UK. The airport is a 20 minute drive away, although there are the options of taxi, bus, or car hire at the airport. Car hire is not considered essential as the local services are so close, however one will be required to go on excursions, or alternatively by coach from the local tour company based in the adjacent complex. We have an arrangemet with a local car hire firm (Auto Jardim) who we have used for the last 11 years and have always found them to be extremely good.

Cabo Vincente, the most westerly point of Portugal is 90 kilometres away by road. 300 kilometers by toll motorway to Lisbon. Spain is only 75 Kilometres away. The nearest towns are Quateria, and Albufeira, which both offer beaches, bars, and nightime entertainment if required.

The Algarve is many things to different people from a bucket and spade beach holiday, to a fishing and watersports holiday based at Vilamoura Marina, with golf, walking, cycling, or visiting historical sites. There really is something to suit all tastes. The local nature reserve has a fantastic range of birdlife including several rare varieties.

Date of Stay: September 2010 I stayed at this apartment mid September 2010 with my friend. It was low season and not much going on in Portugal in the evenings. This was fine as it was a relaxing chilled holiday. The apartment was very clean, great size bedrooms (I had the double bedroom and it was extremely comfortable) and having two bathrooms was perfect. The kitchen was spacious and had everything you needed in there. Although we are tidy people, it was nice to have the maid come in to change the beds. Instructions left by the owner were very helpful (getting into the apartment and visiting the nearby area). We would sometimes eat out at nearby restaurants but it was also fun cooking and staying in. As the apartment had TV, DVD player, DVDs, iPod docking speaker and games, there was no real need to go out in the evening. Also being low season, we had the pool to ourselves and although I am not much of a swimmer, it was nice to be able to lounge by the pool side with music and a glass of something cool. The location is great as the beach is nearby, there are many places to eat, a supermarket and a great tourist shop where the owner (who is a very helpful lovely lady) will change your £s to €s. Portugal is a lovely place and I hope this apartment will be available when I visit again! Recommended for: Adventure Seekers, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway Owners Response: We are so pleased about Sapphires reaction to Agave, we love staying there ourselves for all the same reasons she did, and as we are constantly listening to our guests we added a washing machine, as the budget airline restrictions mean that being able to wash clothes has become almost an essential requirement. The apartment is a very private comples with only 5 apartments, so is ideal for couples or families who want the comforts and privacy of a villa without the price tag. Sapphire went to the Algarve in September which along with May and June is a really great time to go as the weather is still warm, but there are fewer people, and means that it is possible to have a really chilled holiday with all services a few feet away, and to visit the beachs and Marina is only a brisk walk away! We very much hope that Sapphire will return , like more and more of our guests are doing year after year

February 2011 Hi Paul Just wanted to say loved our stay at the Agave, it was comfortable, perfectly located and what more could you want with the sun shining on the balcony all day, peace and quiet and plenty of fresh air. We shall be back I am sure! Thank you! Recommended for: Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway Owners Response: I am so pleased the pair of you enjoyed yourselves, the horse riding on the beach and a suntan in February is brilliant, so pleased you managed to chill out, and enjoyed Agave, its such a great place for a relaxing break. Hope to have you visit again soon

Date of Stay: July 2010 We have used the apartment 3 times, varying from a week to 2 weeks in duration. All the holidays have ben very relaxing ,standard of cleanliness and comfort are excellent and it is very rare for anyone else to be in the small block of partments so on most occasions we have been the only people there which makes for a fabulous break. Even when there have been people downstairs there is no noise and rarely do they use the pool so you can use it yourself and be in private. the owner provides completely accessible contact detaisl for himself and the managing agent and, although we did not have to contact them, it is comforting to have the details to hand. Recommended for: Age 55+, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children, Romantic Getaway Owners Response: So pleased that you enjoyed all the things we looked for when we first bought the apartment, fortunately we dont often get contacted during clients holidays, only afterwards when they let us know what a wonderful holiday they had. Vilamoura is lovely in spring, and the weather is warm enough for a spot of sunbathing on the balcony, oh and a quick dip in the pool. We look forward to you staying with us again!

Date of Stay: July 2010 Just back from a 10 day break at Agave with my husband and 2 teenagers. The apartment was perfect for a nice relaxing holiday. Even though we were on holiday there July/ August the apartments were quiet and we had the pool to ourselves most of the time which was a nice bonus. The property is very well equipped although we tended just to have breakfast there. The beds are comfortable and the sofa in the lounge is great for a wee siesta!! There is lots of info about places to eat, excursions and trips you can take from the Marina. There are a couple of restaurants and a bar opposite the apartment but we usually walked to the Marina at night and found a greet square behind the Marina with lots of restaurants offering fantastic food at better value than on the Marina itself. It was a 20 minute stroll down to the centre along the fitness path which was all flat. We did use Parkys bar in the evenings on the way home for a night cap and they also have free wifi so the girls could get their fix of Facebook and twitter! Just be prepared if you go back to apartment at 11ish, you might get a soaking from the garden sprinklers! This is a superbly well equipped, clean bright apartment and would suit young or old and I hope I get the chance to go back soon. Thank you Paul.

Villamoura epsoundbox london Review Submitted: January 4, 2011 Date of Stay: September 2010 Stayed at this apartment in late September 2010 and it was brilliant. Was only 2 of us but could easily sleep six. The apartment is fully equipped with all kitchen appliance, esp various wine bottle openers which are handy as the local vino is worth tasting and excellently priced. TV, DVD and ipod docking station included. The flat was cleaned twice weekly with new bedding and towels provided. 2 bathroom/shower rooms so theres no arguments in the mornings. Living room is very ample but be warned...the sofa is so comfy, falling asleep by accident is a given! Theres also a outdoor pool for those hot days if you dont fancy the walk to the beach. There are a few restaurants and local stores within walking distance, as well as the main Villamoura Marina which is either a pleasant stroll or bike ride, as well as the little train which will take you there for a very small fee. There you will find two amazing beaches as well as night life, restaurants, shopping, bars and day trip excursions that are a must to explore the coastline. This is a excellent rental that I plan to visit agin this summer. great value and ideal location to all that Villamoura has to offer.
