Wonderfull Villa!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Dominico was wonderful. The villa has everything that we needed during our stay and we were met with a small welcome pack (including a bottle of wine!) which was a nice surprise. The location is rural and as an earlier review mentioned, the last part of the road is unpaved. We had a VW polo as a rental car and it was not a problem at all. The view from the roof terrace is beautiful - a great place to enjoy a morning coffee. If you are looking for an 'away from it all' kind of place, i would definitely recommend Casa Dominico

Peace and quiet location in a beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is very lovely and being a gardener I loved the surroundings. So many beautiful plants, olive, pomegranate and almond trees with just the cicada song breaking through complete silence. We watched the sun set and rise on the roof terrace and took binoculars for birds. The pool was great and the pool guy was a very nice and freindly. The temp was around 30 all week so it was pretty hot so the pool was a real blessing. I couldn't get the internet to work for me all week and ran out of data in the first 24hrs but after a couple of days I didn't really care. There was a full mobile coverage anyway in case. We ate 'at home' every day and had a few BBqs, popping into Moncarapacho daily (mainly for Pastel de nata...nom nom). Facilities were all good inside and out. The flowers were so colorful against the blue blue sky I would love it see it earlier in the season with even more flowers. So maybe next time! Thank you guys it was brilliant.

Lovely rustic villa in great peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

We had a tremendous week here and would definitely go back as this part of Portugal really is a true hidden gem. The people we met were very friendly and helpful and we were made most welcome.

The villa is set a mile or so from the peaceful town of Moncarapacho and gives you a great place to wind down after a day out exploring the region. We loved the tranquility of the countryside that surrounded the villa and our son was never out of its own well looked after private pool. The owner went out of his way to ensure our stay was was relaxing; nothing seemed any trouble.

Infact the only very minor niggle we had was the last half mile or so of road leading to the house which is a little stony and uneven so a a little care is required negotiating it, but to be honest, we managed a week running up and down it in a small mini car so it shouldn't present too much of a problem.

All in all, a characterful place that's slightly off the beaten track but gives one the chance to live the real Portugal. Highly recommended.

Best villa holiday for family of four

  • 5 of 5

Here is my summary of our stay at the villa

1. Beautiful villa decorated like a home rather than a rental accommodation, plenty of daily use items and very well equipped.

2. Very quiet and peaceful, you can enjoy total privacy with no interruption of any man made noise, but at the same time, you can make noise without worry others to complaint.

3. Convenient access to shops, shopping items are cheap compares to many larger stores, except sun cream, we enjoyed pretty of sea food and fishes during our stay, drinks are very cheap compares to UK, with many good quality wines.

4. Friendly and efficient agent Elizabeth who is always very prompt in answer my queries and solve any problems I raised against the villa.

5. Great white sandy beach near by with plenty of options to explore the surrounding areas make this sun holiday filled with fun.

6. Weather in Portugal during our stay was perfect, 7 days of unspoiled clear blue sky, temperature range between 35-40. Did a lot swimming and sun bathing, lovely

7. Wi-Fi is provided, but struggles to support 4 devices to use at the same time, may be install a booster can help the bandwidth.

Great Villa, strongly recommended

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Portugal and we thoroughly loved it. Our flight out was delayed by over an hour due to "technical difficulties with a cargo hold door" then there was a long wait in the car hire office due to their systems being down so by the time we left Faro airport it was dark, Dominic provided us with the co-ordinates for the SatNav but neither my own SatNav nor the one in the car could find the location so we headed for Moncarapacho and called Elizabeth, Dominic's agent in Portugal at 10pm on a Sunday evening, Elizabeth in turn had Anna-Maria the housekeeper come and find us and guide us to the house. As it turned out we were all of five minutes away but being in the dark it was impossible to know which way to go. Once there though it was worth the trouble, the villa is a lovely retreat away from the mad, mad world and is an absolute credit to Anna-Maria as it was spotlessly clean. Once we had established our bearings the house is ideally located for visiting everything that the Eastern Algarve has to offer. Strongly recommended and we will definitely be back. One word of advice take a SatNav if you go and hire a 4x4 type vehicle due to the nature of the road leading up to the house.

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!
