Vilamoura in central  Algarve, Vilamoura is the name given to the area, rather than the town with a lack of its own period coat of arms. Vilamoura comes under the district of Loule and is one of the riches districts in the Algarve, known for million euro villas and top golf courses. Vilamoura created in the 1960s, built as one of the largest single tourist complex in Europe. Covering 1600 hectares of land, not known as the pine resorts for nothing, with one of the largest pine tree covered areas in the Algarve. The high demand for luxury house has led to the development and reclaim of the marshlands. The Company that owns the complex is environmentally conscious and has made every effort to protect nature within its continued planned development.  

Whilst Vilamoura comes across as an expensive place due to the luxury boats and yachts moored in the marina that dominated the town.  Price tags for villas can reach into the millions, yet you would be wrong for thinking not an affordable place to visit. With plenty of restaurants to suit every pocket, try those bars and restaurants off the back road with dish of the day from as little as €10.

For those of you who are golfers it offers six different golf courses (but the Championship course requires you to have a handicap certificate to play).the complex also include large marina, Lawn Bowling Club, Tennis Club, a Sports Club, even a Shooting Club, 5 Star and 4 Star Hotels. Many apartments self-catering Villas, Night Clubs, an International Casino with glamorous shows.  Also boasts a Cinema, and an excellent horse riding school.
