The Vila Sol resort boasts an excellent location, so close to the buzzy cosmopolitan tourist town of Vilamoura and within easy reach of atmospheric villages and stunning beaches.
Of course, being on the Vila Sol Resort is a major plus for golf fans. It is very easy to see why this region is perfect for golf lovers. There is so much choice about courses and their settings. The Old Course at Vilamoura is set in a stunning pinewood and is the second oldest golf course in the Algarve. The Portugal Masters takes place every year at the Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura. Also popular are the Pinhal, Laguna and Millenium courses.
Vilamoura boasts two excellent, family-friendly beaches, Praia da Falesia and Praia de Quarteira. Praia da Falesia’s fine, golden sand stretches more than six kilometres to Olhos do Aqua. It is one of the longest beaches in Portugal and is backed by dramatic cliffs sprinkled with pine trees. Along the coast towards Faro are many other wonderful beaches and just the other side of Faro is the splendid Ria Formosa Nature Reserve with its beautiful little islands.
As well as golf, there are many other sports available to active guests. There are excellent horse riding, tennis, football, cycling and watersports facilities. Algarve Xcite Watersports at the Vilamoura Marina offers parasailing, dolphin tours, fishing trips and jet ski adventures. Quinta do Lago’s lagoon boasts an excellent centre for watersports, Artur’s Watersports Academy. Children, in particular, love the lagoon for its warmer, calmer water and its fantastic water assault course.
The Yacht Harbour Association awarded the buzzy Vilamoura Marina International Marina of the Year 2019/2020. The marina offers a fabulous dining scene with wonderful views of the bobbing super luxury yachts. There are over one hundred restaurants to choose from in Vilamoura. There are also outstanding bars and beach clubs with professional DJ’s. The town’s casino is also a place to be seen at!
The delightful village of Almancil and its neighbouring village of Sao Lourenco are worth a trip. The beautiful Sao Lourenco Church, decorated with characteristic blue tiles dating back to 1730, is one of the most attractive in the Algarve. Almancil is famous for its pretty pottery. Loule is also very atmospheric. Its Arabic inspired market is wonderful for souvenir and fresh produce shopping.

Vilamoura has been a glamorous town ever since Roman time. Its rich history is still palpable as you walk its streets, coming upon Roman Baths and ancient murals all around town. These days, Vilamoura is still a high-class destination although it has certainly kept up with the times. Yachts dock at the large marina and travellers galavant the seaside strip hopping between bars, restaurants and the dazzling casino.
The local championship courses naturally attract a crowd of golf enthusiasts as well, and there is a large selection of other sports to enjoy in the area (including those best played out in the water). There is certainly no need to ever be bored in Vilamoura, but if it’s ultimate relaxation you’re after you won’t be disappointed. The town is alluringly close to Praia da Marina and Praia de Falesia, where the golden sand and hot Mediterranean sun is just about never-ending.
ABOUT THE ALGARVE
Though most people tend to see the Algarve as all about the beaches and a holiday on the Med, there’s far much more to it than that.
