Holidays to Vilamoura

Vilamoura is designed to offer the holidaymaker a holiday that suits both their needs and their pocket. Holidays in Vilamoura bring travellers to the crown jewel of the Algarve.

Accommodation ranges from the luxurious to the simple, and from hotels to apartments and villas. The marina is the heart of the resort with space for over a thousand boats. It is surrounded by shops, cafés, bars, restaurants and apartments.

Although the resort itself is very modern it is still surrounded by places of interest. Igreja Matriz de São Lourenço is an 18th century church near the town of Almancil. The parish church of Loulé features the original bell tower adapted from a Moorish mosque.

The area is also blessed with a number of galleries and museums which those on Vilamoura holidays will want to visit. The Museum of Cerro Da Villa features remains and ceramics from a Roman villa, including the house itself and the salting tanks.

The Praça do Mar Art Gallery highlights various artists throughout the year. The Cultural Centre of São Lourenço has concerts and also hosts art exhibitions.

The marina is the starting point for a number of boat trips and fishing expeditions. An experienced skipper will take travellers on holidays in Vilamoura to where the fish are biting, hopefully.

The Algarve has built an excellent reputation for golf courses and the Vilamoura resort is no exception. Courses such as Laguna, Pinhal and Vila Sol are all within easy reach of the resort. If you aren’t up to a championship challenge the resort has its own 18-hole miniature course. If tennis is more your style, there are 12 courts available with coaches on hand to help you perfect that backhand.

Kids will love the Atlantic Park with its host of water slides, rides, pools and gardens, or Aqualand which is open during the summer months. Krazy World is a family fun park with a small zoo, Krazy Golf and lots of other attractions to keep kids of all ages happy.

The quality and variety of seafood in the Algarve is renowned throughout the world. The wonderful natural harvest of the sea is put to the best possible use in the region’s restaurants. Apart from traditional dishes there are plenty of international restaurants making good use of the local ingredients.

Nightlife is centred on the marina, where bars and clubs make it a lively place after the sun sets.

The resort plays host to a variety of events throughout the year. In February there is a carnival; the Fisherman’s Festival also takes place in February, and a number of saints’ days are celebrated across the year.

Vilamoura is a vibrant, modern resort. Ideal for couples or families, when they choose holidays to Vilamoura travellers know they will be enjoying the very best facilities in the Algarve.
