Great location, lovely spacious villa in a pretty and quiet setting

  • 5 of 5

We have just enjoyed a week in this villa. It is in a great location, convenient for the beach, supermarket and good restaurants. The villa is not modern but is well equipped and clean.

Lovely villa but tired and needs refurbishment.

  • 2 of 5

We had a good holiday, perfect weather, good pool but hot at night.

Villa Joale is a lovely Classic Algarve villa with good gardens and a nice pool. Just as you might expect from a 1980s build. But it's now 2016 and this house is in need of refurbishment.

Whilst we were there the trees in the adjoining plot were being cleared (chainsaws and a JCB) which was disturbing, and clearly it will be a building site very soon. The contractors were putting up a temporary fence to replace the two foot sparse hedge which won't shield anything.

The house is a good layout, three reasonably sized bedrooms with bathrooms, but now old fashioned. There are plenty of cooling fans ( just as well in August) but surely now is the era of air conditioning is this quality of villa.

The sheets and towels were rather old and somewhat threadbare.

The kitchen was well stocked, but there were not enough glasses for each of us to have a G&T in the same type of glass. Picky but typical.

The villa information pack was dated 2004, and didn't include the only restaurant you can walk to ( the Xenia in the Dunas Douradas club - recommended very welcoming and professional).

The directions from the airport were wrong! Traffic lights have been replaced with roundabouts.

We had a classic problem with the drains by the front door ( in fairness quickly sorted).

The pictures showed five sun loungers, but there were only four. Frustrating as there were 5 of us!

When the necessary investment is made to bring this place up to date it will be great again.

Owner's Response: I have had 5 families renting my villa this year and I have had a good comments from all... The point about the building next door to the villa is NOT TRUE there is and is not intended any building work! The points that where made about the villa have been done, the garden...towels, glasses and sun beds ( back to 5 ) have been replaced for 2017 season.

Car: recommended


The villa is about 1km from the beach, a gentle stroll through the pine trees takes you to a beautiful long beach that is very rarely busy. The beach restaurants are plentiful with some of the best fish on offer. In high season the beach has an abundance of sun loungers and umbrellas.

Vale Do Lobo the next resort has many quality shops, restaurants and crazy golf.


Faro airport is a mere 20 minute drive. Car hire is recommended to get the most from your stay. All major car hire companies are represented at Faro airport.


The nearest town is Almancil, 15 minutes drive from the villa, everything you need is there, supermarkets, shops, post office, banks a go-cart track etc.

The resort that is in walking distance is Dunas Dorados, there is a restaurant, pool, small supermarket and tennis.

Again walking distance is Roger Taylor tennis centre.
