About The Owner

My husband and I have both retired and are looking forward to spending more time at the villa. I ran a manufacturing business with my brother and my husband spent 30 years in banking.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2004

Why The Owner chose Vale do Garrão

I had been coming out to play tennis with a group of friends for seven years staying at the Ria Park or in villas around Dunas Douradas. We had been looking for a villa throughout Europe for about 5 years and were getting very frustrated at the lack of suitable property for us along the Spanish Algarve so we came here to have a look at the area. The first place I stopped was in the parking area at the bottom of Zone 6. My husband immediately said ''If we can find something here I'd be very happy''................and here we are.

We use the villa a lot throughout the year ourselves and as you can see from the reviews, its all available for our guests to use.

We have tried to create an atmosphere which is homely and welcoming and we are sharing our home with you.

We hope you enjoy it and will do whatever we can to ensure it is a thoroughly enjoyable experience and that you want to come back.

What makes this villa unique

A few minutes walk to the fabulous beach with a choice of beach restaurants, an enormous choice of quality restaurants. You can choose to spend the day at the villa enjoying the pool and cooking lunch on the BBQ with a bottle (or 2 )of rose.

Go down to the resort pool for the day. Enjoy the company and have lunch at the pool bar or go down to the beach for the day

Spacious Villa on Dunas Douradas

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from Villa 611. A spacious, very well equipped villa near to the beach. Just 20 minutes from the airport but near to amazing beaches and places to visit. Ideal for families of all ages and great to have the pool to jump into. Would recommend to all.

This felt like a home from home - everything in it is of the highest standard. The quality of the décor and the taste is wonderful. It has everything you need and more. It is incredibly clean, very comfortable and we cannot recommend it enough. It is a home to relax and have fun it at the same time. We are already booked to return.

All 6 adults in our party were very impressed by the high quality of all facilities in the villa

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent holiday at the villa, it was superbly well equipped and we had everything we needed. It was like home from home!

Everything was spotlessly clean and we were very well looked after by the management company and the owners.

Only a short walk to the beach and a few restaurants.

We would certainly return!
