About Catriona Dickson

My family and I spent four years holidays in Casa Feliz. We loved it and never contemplated going anywhere else. Its a great place to base yourself to see the rest of the Portugal and nearby Spain, but also super if you just want to chill and enjoy the peace and quiet. When the owners told us they wanted to sell the villa we were devastated! What would we do for our holidays? My 13 year old daughter loves the pool and the table tennis. Mad as it may seem the only thing we could do was to buy it. My parents usually spent a couple of month there at the beginning and end of the year to get away from our cold and damp Scottish winters.

Catriona Dickson purchased this villa in 2008

Why Catriona Dickson chose Almancil area

We love the bright airy feel of the villa. We loved the pool and the private location. It's on the edge of a village but still within walking distance of a couple of good restaurants -Malveros is run by Lionel with his wife doing the cooking. Here you will always receive a warm welcome. A new cafe has also opened, good food and wine and very cheap. There is a nearby supermarket (Appolonia) which we think is brilliant. There is also an Aldi next door to Appolonia.

What makes this villa unique

There are loads of places to visit. Loule, Almacil and Villamoura are only 10mins away. Loule has a recently renovated indoor market, and its nice to wander through the old town. Villamoura has a large marina where you can sit in the cafes and watch the world go by.

Well equipped spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

Great villa with lots of facilities and personal touches. Slight bit of noise from the road but didn't bother us too much.

Very comfortable villa in a convenient location.

  • 4 of 5

Casa Feliz is a very well equipped, spacious and comfortable villa. There are 3 large twin bedrooms and a very large living room. But in the sun it is always the outdoor space which is important. The pool is great, large and deep enough for a decent swim, and the surrounding area has plenty of lounges, sunshades and little tables so it was a great place to start and finish our days. It is located at the front of the property but don't let that put you off. The house is down a little lane with only a couple of other houses and we saw only one car in the lane in all the time we were there. But the villa is not remote, it is in a quiet residential area with only a little noise from the nearby road. A car is essential, both for shopping and restaurants, which aren't far away but too far for most people to want to walk. Also the villa is in a great location for exploring the area, both in the immediate vicinity and further afield. Lagos to the west was about an hour away and Olhao, with the lovely nature reserve, only half an hour away. We had only one niggle - it would have been good to have had a bottle of water provided in the fridge especially as the information in the house recommends not drinking the tap water. We arrived late on a Sunday evening and only had the remains of a small bottle each.
