Vilamoura is 15 miles or half an hour drive from Faro airport, there is good reason why Vilamoura is such a popular destination, it has miles of golden beaches and dozens of excellent bars and restaurants located mainly around the marina. A great place to sit watch boats and yachts of all sizes sail in and out of the marina.
The immediate area around Vilamoura marina hosts many four and five star hotels and apartments – prices vary throughout the year in peak season June, July and August hotel room rates would be between 250.00 Euro and 500 Euro but outside of these months expect to pay about half this cost or less.
Vilamoura marina has been open for over fifty years, however in the last five years it has really transformed into a lifestyle experience, with over one hundred restaurants, swanky venues and beach bars it is certainly in the running to become one of Europe’s go to destinations. The Algarve has over three hundred days of sunshine a year, which really makes this a year round destination, during the summer months the Vilamoura is full of holiday makers, whilst out of peak season groups of golfers flock to the region to enjoy what is describe to be the perfect climate for golfing holidays.
