About the Owner

We live in Ireland, but have for some years have been spending quite a lot of time each year visiting Portugal and the Algarve in particular since 1995. We have come to love the Portuguese people, and greatly enjoy the warmth and attractions of this lovely country.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in this lovely apartment for a week in May. We cannot recommend it highly enough. Dunas Douradas is a lovely resort for a family. The area itself is beautiful with the beach only a 10 minute stroll. The Apartment was top class. It was very spacious and totally home from home, everything you need is there for you to make your holiday totally stress free. We have two small children so the garden area was great for then and very safe. The pool and the tennis courts are on your doorstep. The restaurant and pool bar provide lovely food day and night. There is a small shop on site that provides all the small necessities on your arrival. Overall we had a lovely time and we will definitely be going back next year if it is available. Thanks to Andy for all his help. - Angela

Home from home - fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

I love this place. Myself and my family have stayed at this apartment for many years now and we love it. The ground floor is perfect for my kids, they can enjoy the large garden, while shaded by the trees and I can enjoy the sunshine without any worry of balconies etc.

The multichannel tv is also great for when I want the kids to have a break from the sunshine. The pool area is fabulous, loads of beds and a lovely bar and food area. It's always clean and the staff are helpful.

Everything is provided in this apartment, it's just home from home which makes travelling easier.

I love this area and apartment and we will definitely be back. Thanks

Lovely apartment, walking distance from the beach

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, home from home has everything you need for your holiday. There was beach towels provided for us which was a great bonus. The apartment is stones throw from the pool and amenities. Ground floor location meant the kids could play in the garden. Walking distance from Maria's & Julia's beach where there are nice restaurants & bars. Owner very helpful & easy to deal with. Will be back!!

From the Owner

Our Villa was purchased in 2000 and is very much a second home for us, not merely a holiday destination. Through letting our property for some of the summer months, whilst we still enjoy Ireland, we hope to encourage both the Irish and British people to similarly favour the delights of Portugal and its people. We are just a few minutes walk from a glorious and long stretch of sandy beach and provide beach towels and umbrella so that you can travel light and make the most of the great coastline.

The beautiful sandy beaches of the Central Algarve are a 10 minute stroll from the apartment.


Faro Airport is approximately 20 minutes drive from Dunas Douradas. Car Hire is more or less essential, particularly for those wishing to play golf, and is recommended as this facilitates food & drink shopping as well as allowing visitors to explore the Algarve.


The nearest town, with a decent range of shops and good supermarkets, is Almancil and is about 10 minutes drive from the Resort. There are also two further supermarkets in Vale do Lobo and in Bougainvilea Plaza (Quinta do Lago) both between 5 & 8 minutes drive. There is a large shopping mall (Forum Algarve) in Faro, 20 minutes away by car.

Dunas Douradas makes an excellent base for golf, horse riding, bird watching and walking. There is also a go cart track and 2 water parks within a 15 minute drive.

From the Owner

We enjoy playing golf at great courses, of which there are many in the Algarve. Whether you wish to travel just a few minutes to play (there are 7 courses within 10 minutes drive) or are happy to journey a little further (at least 20 courses within 45 to 50 minutes by car), you will find very high quality golf courses.
