Vilamoura - How did it all start?



Vilamoura was created in the former Quinta do Morgado in Quarteira, it was a farm with 1600ha acquired by the founder, Mr. Arthur Cupertino de Miranda.



The design of the Vilamoura resort we know today was created around the Vilamoura Marina. It all started in the late 60's and early 70's, having the first excavations starting in 1971.       

In 1974, the Vilamoura Marina received its first sailboat, “Giralda” from His Royal Highness, the Count of Barcelona.



Vilamoura Marina has since then grown and the resort of Vilamoura has grown around it too. Currently, Vilamoura is much more than a marina, due to the large positive acceptance Vilamoura received by visitors and residents, it has become over the years an important center for tourism and private accommodation.

Besides the Marina, Vilamoura offers a recreational infrastructure that currently receives international recognition, such as 5 golf courses, international school, tennis academy, jogging and fitness areas, sailing club, hotels and conference rooms with capacity for thousands of people and many more. Vilamoura’s residents and visitors recognize that this is a place that offers the possibility of enjoying a high quality lifestyle, where you can enjoy renowned hotels, restaurants, bars and great social life.
