The popular property features 2 swimming pools and a baby pool, sun terraces, poolside bar, restaurant, bar, minimarket, tennis courts (payable locally) and 24 hour reception. In high season (June to August), there is a kiddies club and occasional evening entertainment is on offer in the bar for adults . Outside of high season the kids club may operate depending on occupancy level of property.

Free WiFi is available in the lobby area.

Praia do Vau itself is a nice laid back resort, but the brighter lights of nearby Praia da Rocha (about 2 klms away) which has a better selection of bars and restaurants, are accessible by public bus which operates on a regular basis.

Studios are bedsitter type with twin beds, well equipped kitchenette (4 ring hob, microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge etc.), phone, satellite TV, safe, hairdryer, bathroom and balcony or terrace.

Two bedroom apartments have 2 bathrooms.

* Some facilities may incur an extra charge locally.

Peter says: " Estrela do Vau Apartments are well recommended for enjoyable holidays for both couples and families. The property is particularly suitable if you like a relaxed and friendly ambience and without being too far removed from a lot of commercial activity, yet not in the hub of a busy resort. Friendly staff and comfortable apartments are the order of the day."

Praia do Vau

Praia do Vau enjoys what is possibly one of the best beaches in all the Algarve - a big boast indeed in a country where superb sandy beaches are the norm. The beach is long and sandy and has become popular with many famous Portuguese personalities. Very family oriented, the waters are shallow, clean  and clear and shelve gently for safe and pleasant bathing. The resort also boasts a handful of golf courses and a good variety of water sports, so well suited to the active holidaymaker.

Praia do Vau also has an excellent selection of bars, restaurants and shops, so there is plenty of diversion both by day and by night.

Once just a tiny hamlet, this one time fishing village has become an increasingly popular place to visit. The resort is delightfully laid back during the day and although there are good pubs and local eateries when the sun goes down, Praia do Vau has a charm and attraction more suited to couples and families.

Situated midway between Alvor and Praia da Rocha you get the best of all words in this beautiful resort.
