Situated in the Algarve’s Golden Triangle, 20 minutes west from Faro airport, Vilamoura belongs to the city of Quarteira, to the municipality of Loulé and Albufeira and to the district of Faro. It is one of Portugal’s most popular holiday resorts and blends luxury hotels, villas and apartments all of which are supported by an extensive infrastructure and all the community services required in a residential area.

The story of this famed destination begins in 1966, when Artur Cupertino de Miranda launched the largest tourist complex the Algarve region had ever seen. Vilamoura was established on a 1700-hectare coastal site, at the very heart of the region. Over the decades and through a series of amendments to this Master Plan, brought about by changes to business structure and ownership, or by protocols signed with national and local institutions, Vilamoura has grown into the vibrant destination it is today.

Vilamoura offers a carefully considered urban-coastal experience, subtly integrated into the landscape. It’s defining ethos of quality and variety can be seen throughout. Meeting the aspirational needs of residential and tourism clienteles, the destination enables a host of lifestyle choices and leisure opportunities, in which facilities and amenities have been developed sympathetically into the surroundings. A feeling of quality pervades, revealed initially through excellent infrastructure and continuing into leisure and residential structures. Developed as a place to live, visit and holiday, Vilamoura has so much to offer. 10,000 permanent residents live in Vilamoura’s villas, townhouses and apartments. Vilamoura has 13 hotels and the destination attracts over 3 million visitors per year.

Residents and visitors can rely on an extensive service infrastructure, which includes a health centre, several chemists, an international school, crèches, post office, and a veterinary clinic. For leisure and sport, it’s hard to beat: five renowned championship golf courses, world-class equestrian facilities, water and land-based sports facilities, spas, and two of the finest beaches in Europe. Lifestyle choices are further enhanced by more than 100 restaurants (including a Michelin Star holder), an enviable line-up of bars, lounges and beach clubs, & even a casino.
