About Ian Jones

I live and work in Dubai with my wife who is a teacher and two very lively boys. We spend most of our summers in Portugal and that is where we fell in love with the place and made many friends.

Ian Jones purchased this villa in 2006

Why Ian Jones chose Santa Barbara de Nexe

We purchased Casa Tranquila because of a number of reasons but most of all we enjoyed the quiet and remote setting. It is also a true family home that we see ourselves retiring too and enjoying the pool and views over the countryside.

Amazing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Casa Tranquila is a home from home but with the added sunshine, where we spent a very relaxing 2 weeks.

The villa had all the comforts we required and the published photographs do not do it justice. We were left a very generous "welcome pack" which was very much appreciated, saving us a trip to the supermarket on our arrival. The pool was lovely together with the orange and lemon trees, the latter fruit complimenting our evening drinks.

We look forward to spending another holiday at Casa Tranquila.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have been enjoying our holidays at Casa Tranquila for the past 5 years. It gives the best of both worlds, total peace in a lovely secluded villa and 5 to 20 minutes drive to all your other holiday pursuits.

It's a rustic country villa and has all the facilities you need.

Pick from the 3 bedrooms or annex, all with bathrooms, large living room over looking the pool, fully fitted kitchen.

Outdoors- great pool with easy steps, barbecue and bar area.

Garden to the side of the villa, lawned and full of fruit trees.

Favorite part of the villa, opening the bedroom doors straight out to the pool, lovely gardens, then seeing that Blue sky, quick dip then sit having breakfast drying off, you can't beat it.

There's plenty of outdoor shade if you need it, which was missing from some other villas we had visited, and no barking dogs.

A car is a must.

Excellant restaurant, Le marquis in the village and only 5 mins drive from various other eating places in Santa Barbara and Loule.

We'll be. Back......
