About Dominic Young

My name is Dominic I purchased this wonderful homely property after falling in love with Portugal.

I live and work in London and visit Portugal several times a year.

Dominic Young purchased this villa in 2014

Why Dominic Young chose Olhao region

I fell in love with this property as soon as I set eyes on it. Set in a beautiful unspoilt part of Portugal. Still very close to the sea but away from the hustle and bustle local restaurantes are in abundance.

What makes this villa unique

Space private pool sit in the pool and have your own sea view.

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

West Oxfordshire


  • 5 of 5

I booked this holiday during a somewhat traumatic period in my life last year and I have to say it was a bit of a shot in the dark. I'd never used Owners Direct before, but the photo's and the reviews looked good so I thought, "Oh, just go for it!"

I'm so, so glad I did!

We took the ferry from Portsmouth to Bilbao and drove down to the villa which is a fantastic experience in itself. As other reviewers have correctly mentioned it is accessed down a dusty unmade track but having studied the maps and Google Earth, we were prepared for that and the coordinates provided by Dominic took us straight to the door and Elizabeth's instructions that, "The key's under the mat!" proved to be spot on too.

Casa Dominico is well appointed with everything that is listed on the web site. We found it spotlessly clean with fresh linen and scrumptious towels.

Elizabeth had arranged, as requested, a welcome pack of food in the fridge which I recommend asking Dominic to arrange for you. Just let him know what you think you may need and the cost is taken out of your breakages deposit.

The pool is the icing on the cake! When we arrived, the Algarve were experiencing the hottest September temperatures for 85 years. With the car thermometer reading 45 degrees it was bliss just to jump in. The pool lights were not working which was a bit disappointing, but Elizabeth was aware.

There is a book listing good places to eat though with nowhere within walking distance, we tended to cook in the villa so you will need to look to other reviewers for recommendations for that.

Moncarapacho has two good small supermarkets where you can get all your essentials. For a more comprehensive shop, Tavira, 20 minutes away has a large shopping mall which includes a Continente 'hypermarket' which is well signposted as you enter the town.

What we enjoyed most about the villa was its isolated location and with the exception of aircraft on their approach to Faro airport, the peace and quiet. Perfect for relaxing and winding down.

As with any location in a hot climate, insects can be an issue. Here at Casa Dominico it was ants in the kitchen. We finally got on top of the problem after four or five days with a good ant killing aerosol from the village hardware store, so be prepared.

Communication with Dominic before and with the run up to the holiday was excellent and the same with Elizabeth (the local agent) whilst there.

Would I recommend the villa? Well, we're going back!

Relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing holiday at the villa. It was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed We particularly enjoyed the pool from an early morning swim to swimming under the stars at night. There was plenty of space to sit on the terrace and enjoy the sun. We also appreciated the quiet location of the villa after having a stressful period leading up to our holiday. . To get to the villa there is a non-tarmacked road so the driving is slow .We were able to drive to Moncarapacho in about 10 minutes (approx. half of this is on the non-tarmacked road. From Moncarapacho there was easy access to the A22 making it a good base to travel around. Our contact with Dominic and Elizabeth was good making booking easy, especially as we booked so late.We also want to say a big thank you to Elizabeth for sending out the 'rescue party' when we got lost arriving at the villa in the dark. I am afraid we are 'dinosaurs' when it come to technology and had never found anywhere using SAT NAV co-ordinates before(we have always used post codes or good old fashioned maps back in the UK) . When it was day light we realised we had only been 3 minutes away at a villa called Casa Domingo rather than Casa Dominico. We are really sorry to have had to get someone out to help us and have now learnt how to use SAT NAV co-ordinates!

Pleasant stay at Casa Dominico

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the villa. The villa is situated situated at a gravel road within easy reach of Moncarapacho. This village has all the facilities you need (some lovely restaurants too). The house is well equiped and has a lovely pool. The A22 motorway and also local roads are easy to reach from Moncarapacho. We travelled daily by using local roads and the A22 to discover the south part of The Algarve.

Tavira, Praya Verde, Sao Bras, Loulé are beautifull places to visit.

If you are looking for a truly relaxing holiday, away from it all, but still close enough to experience 'real' Portugal, then Casa Dominica is for you. This was my first villa holiday with my family and it lived upto and far beyond our expectations. Dominic was tremendously helpful right from when I made our initial enquiry and remained on hand until the end of our stay. Elizabeth the agent, was very friendly and helpful and even turned up with a box of delicious Portugese custard tarts for us to enjoy with a coffee one morning. The villa was absolutely spotless when we arrived, thanks to the cleaner Ana Maria and her daughter. The pool was cleaned twice during our stay by an attendant. The pool itself was just perfect with a shallow end with steps, leading down to the deeper part of about 4 foot deep, my 2 boys found this wonderful to play in the whole week. We bbq'd most nights, although we did dine at Colibri's in Montcarapacho 2 evenings and would highly recommend the steak on the hot stone. You do need to book if you want to sit outside though. Moncarapacho was very cheap to eat, have a coffee (or a beer) in the square and all the locals are very friendly. Tavira is an absolutely beautiful place to visit and is only half an hour away, as well as the beach at Fuseta, with its street lined restaurants and calm waters, perfect for families.

We had a wonderful stay thanks to Dominic and Elizabeth, it just couldn't have gone better, I just wish we could have stayed longer.

Thank you for sharing Casa Dominica :)

Perfect rural getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for somewhere to completely escape this is the place to do it. However a good supermarket and great places to eat are 5 mins drive (half of which is on a bumpy track) in Moncarapacho. Antonios not to be missed for the imaginative menu and service and Ana's in the town square for the lovely setting. Casa Dominico inside is well equipped and comfortable.

Wonderful, Relaxing Holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time staying at Casa Dominico, The description of The Villa is perfect very spacious,clean & has everything you need, Booking & all arrangements with Dominic & Elizabeth went as smooth as can be. Lots of useful local information in the Villa on places to visit & eat.To the supermarket is approximately 8 minute drive but that is because half of the journey is on a bit of a dirt track so best to drive slowly, A car is a must have in our opinion.The beaches were beautiful, People were friendly, Food was cheap! .......... (The only fault was we had to come home!)

We would definitely go back & would highly reccomend to Family & friends.
