Vilabranca

Vilabranca, Lagos Portugal

A pleasant and relatively upmarket self catering base with the advantage of a small on site restaurant and bar facility. The calm and tranquil surroundings make this a realistic option for those who prefer an off centre base with plenty of grounds, yet still easy access to the resort centre and beaches.

Exterior

A series of attractive villa-style linked white painted buildings with blue and yellow trim, tightly packed into 11 acres of flat grounds. A wide driveway provides plenty of space for parking and a main communal building occupies an area near the entrance.

Property type: Apartments

Balcony/Terrace: All rooms

Storeys: 1 & 3

Built Year: 1998

Exterior: Villa-style building

Interior

A simple and welcoming lobby has a small reception desk and limited seating. A library, card room and a lounge have simple wicker furnishings and calm, relaxing atmosphere. The restaurant is refreshing and attractive with well spaced tables and simple but amenable decor. That should satisfy most tastes.

Rooms: 92

Grounds

The 11 acres of well managed grounds feature many mature trees, flat narrow paths and a tennis area. A children’s playground is well quipped whilst the spacious pool surround has a good supply of sunloungers and parasols.

The lawns and shrubs are well maintained providing an attractive area for relaxation for those not wishing to visit the beach.

Location

Area Type: Situated on the western edge of the resort, in what is primarily a relatively smart residential area with many low rise apartment buildings and small houses. There is a large supermarket 400 to the E and the old town with its plethora of bars, nightclubs, restaurants and tourist shops is 1.5km away. Bus stop 150m.

Nearest beach: 1.2km (Dona Ana)
