Bright townhouse, in a quiet location of the luxury resort of Dunas Douradas, situated on the Algarve coast, between Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo.

About the Owner

My husband (Irish) and I(Belgian) have lived in Portugal since 1987 and love this beautiful country and its people. My husband has his own business offering project management services and I look after our two properties in Dunas Douradas. We have two sons (24 and 19) who are in university in Dublin.

As I live near our rental property, I am able to give a personalised service to clients and I like to pay particular attention to the little details that make the difference in a holiday.

My husband and I along with our two small children have just returned from 10 nights at 109 Townhouse Dunas Douradas. The house feels like a home, all very well maintained and fully equipped with everything you need, just the little small touches like washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and surface cleaner were all supplied, it's certainly nice when on holiday not to have to worry about purchasing the cleaning products. The furnishings were all of a high standard too, from good garden furniture, clean fluffy beach towels, to very comfortable beds all with lovely matching bedding.

Linda, whom we met a few days into our holiday, was very accommodating and as we were travelling with a 1 year old this was very much appreciated. Having the cot made up on arrival, which I have to note had a very good mattress, along with stair gates already in place made it a very easy and relaxing arrival.

Nice 15/20 minute walk to beautiful beaches, with lovely restaurants and an easy €10-€15 taxi to Vale do Lobo makes this spot an ideal location.

Fabulous holiday in top class villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing stay in 109 Dunas Douradas in Sept 2015 with our new baby. The accommodation was excellent - modern decore, comfortable beds and furniture and super private garden looking into a pine forest. The villa is a nice 10 minute walk to an amazing beach and 2 minutes from a pool, restaurant and bar.

Linda, our host, was extremely helpful both before and during our stay, nothing was a problem.

Would highly recommend this villa and area for a very relaxing holiday.

From the Owner

We bought the townhouse because we felt that Dunas Douradas (which means golden dunes) is a perfect spot for a wonderful holiday. Although situated in a quiet location in the resort, it is close to lots of facilities and the beach is a 5 mins drive away. On the beach, there are sun shades and loungers for hire, water sports are available during the summer months and the beach restaurants are open all year. It is also within a short drive to lots of restaurants and nightlife. For golfers, there are many golf courses in the area. Families can relax knowing they are in a safe environment.

From the Owner

Dunas Douradas is a fantastic resort for a holiday as it is close to the beach and there is a very large communal pool in the main Clubhouse. Most facilities and many golf courses are just 10 minutes away. We provide beach towels so you don't have to bring those with you and there's usually a good selection of buckets, spades and body boards for the kids.
