About Richard Al-Dabbagh

Hi. We are Sam and Richard. We have recently purchased Casa Dos Sonhos, and are very excited about our new project. It's a beautiful villa, in a great location, with lovely sea and countryside views. We will be putting our own stamp on the villa over the next few months, and hope you will be able to look forward to staying there as much as we are!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Nick & Janet, We had the most relaxing and enjoyable holiday at your lovely villa. So nice to spread out, very well appointed, loved the outdoor space, pool and everything. It was a great location and the stroll down to the town was just right, need to get a bit of exercise! Nick and Mick enjoyed the golf. Sadly the restaurant that you recommended near the villa appears to have closed? We loved Salema beach, and Burgau beach bar, altogether a very chilled time and it was nice as the management company let us stay until midday on departure day. We both thought it would be a lovely place to come back to with various family members. One thing is it would be nice to have wifi internet at the house! The only real problem was dogs barking at night, is this often a problem? The one next door liked to join in with what sounded like a pack of other dogs and we were often woken. Thanks again and by the way our friends are Mick & Debbie Hoyle so if they get in con.

The villa exceeded our expectations huge property very well equipped lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week lovely well kept villa very well equipped we loved cooking as a family in the kitchen pool area was brilliant the views from the upstairs terraces were lovley although we didnt spend any time up there because we were always sat by the pool or under the shaded area we would definitely recommend the villa to any family with children older or younger or even a party of adults there was just enough of everything stuff going on if you wanted that down in the town or just to sit and relax by the pool we benefited from having a hire car it enabled us to go to the bigger supermarkets and to have days out at the water park and places further afield it was convenient but not an essential an

overall beautiful place fantastic villa and we would definitely go back .

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing. We spend a week here. The villa is large and comfortable, nice and clean. They have thought of everything that you could possibly need for a perfect family holiday. Smile on my 5 year olds son when he saw amount of floats they had to have fun in the pool :) He had a great time.

Location is great too, sandy beach is nearby- car is essential though and great places to eat dinners. Owners gave us great tips and suggestions before we arrived. We enjoyed our stay and I would highly recommend this Villa to everyone.

Great summer break!

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time at this Villa with another family with ages from 4 to 40! Great pool and loads of space all in a great condition! Walkable into Luz but taxis advisable if you have young ones and some great trips to Burgau and Lagos nearby. All in all a great two weeks - thanks

The Casa De Sonhos "The House of Dreams"

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is situated in a quite area just off the main road that leads into Luz Bay. It is very well equipped and is beautiful furnished, the grounds are well maintained and has a good size swimming pool, plenty of sun beds and a lovely outdoor eating area. The wrap around balcony also has an outside eating area and has beautiful views of the ocean and surrounding areas. To walk into Luz takes about 20 minutes, there you will find plenty of bars, restaurants and you will enjoy a walk along the esplanade. There are two supermarkets for those all important provisions. Although there are excellent taxi services that are only a call away I would recommend hiring a car to get you about the surrounding areas.

Casa De Sonhos "The house of Dreams" lived up to its expectations and more!! If you are looking for a relaxing holiday to completely unwind then I would strongly recommend you book it!

Beautiful villa in excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in early August 2016 in this villa. The description of all the facilities is entirely accurate: it is very well equipped and maintained. The manager was very helpful when we needed advice. It was really hot when we were there and the pool and all the shady places on the terrace and balconies were very welcome. The garden with mature trees and shrubs is also a delight. We got airport transfers via the excellent Yellowfish transfers and then had a hire car for a short time and otherwise used local taxis. We took trips to Sagres to see dolphins; the local nature reserve; Montchique for the spa waters; Burgau for wonderful restaurants and Luz for the beach. You can walk to beach and local supermarket and restaurant within 20 minutes.

We would certainly recommend this property and would love to visit again.
