Portugal, Algarve Property - Vilamoura
Vilamoura with its marina and man made beaches is the name given to the area rather than to any actual town and falls under the region of Loulé. About twenty five kilometres from Faro, Vilamoura is one of the oldest established resorts on the coast and it has the smart Marina, filled with boats and ocean going yachts as its centrepiece. Around the marina are shops, restaurants, cafés and bars overlooking the waterfront where you will find cocktail bars and numerous restaurants serving international cuisine.
Vilamoura covers 2.000 hectares of land and is the largest tourist complex in Europe. On the outskirts the land is covered in pine forests whilst others open recovered marshland. The company that owns this complex is extremely environmentally conscious and every effort is being made to protect nature within its continued planned development.
Vilamoura offers nearly every form of sport and entertainment with a long sandy beach and the Atlantic Ocean.
Four different Golf Courses, a large Marina where many opulent yachts are moored, a Lawn Bowling Club, a Tennis Centre, a Sports Club, a Shooting Club, 5 Star and 4 Star Hotels, Tourist Apartments, self-catering Villas, Night Clubs, an International Casino, a Cinema, and an excellent Riding School.
In the centre of Vilamoura there is a preserved Roman Site and Museum of Cerro da Vila. In Roman times this location was important in producing a fish paste known as "garum". The ruins also include the baths in which the mariners used to bath.
Quarteira is close by to Vilamoura marina.
