About the Owner

We love Portugal and the people in this country. What attracted us to our villa was the privacy and the fantastic views. We have had many wonderful evenings chatting and enjoying the expansive views out to the sea. There is such a relaxed feel to the villa it is an ideal place to unwind. also perfect for sun worshippers due to the Sun Terrace which enjoys the full shine of the sun from Dawn til sunset.

-------------

We would like to thank you for our lovely stay at your Villa last week we had a great week the weather was mostly good and the Villa was really comfortable and gave us a really good base. The pool was really warm and used every day the sun was out, the views were fantastic. Lorraine was also very helpful and welcoming.

Your property is lovely, well maintained and has such stunning views.

We got a lot of bird watching in, Waxbill and Bonelli's Eagle spotted.

Thanks again Nicola, I would definitely return to your property.

Excellent villa flexible accommodation but beautifully private.

A lot of Villa for the money, next time we will book the Aircon it is really needed after being on the sun terrace for a good Sunbath even in June.

  • 4 of 5

The villa was well equipped and spacious, It is remote but we were aware of that, the village itself is extremely small, with only one decent bar/restaurant within easy walking distance (cooper's bar) which served excellent food and friendly staff, the nearest convenience store was a good 30 minute walk away, so you may as well drive into town where you have supermarkets. The directions to the villa was not the easiest to follow, we did get lost, but when rang Natalie (management team) she was very helpful, as was paul who cleaned the pool on a regular basis, happy to give us directions etc when asked how to get anywhere,

Only really a couple of negatives were,: No welcome pack. which would have been helpful as the villa is remote, I have stayed in several villas over the years and always received a small welcome pack with essentials, would only cost a few euros for tea sachets/coffee/milk and water.

we were there 10 days, we did not have a villa clean or towels changed, but there was only 3 of us so we could utilise the towels in the spare bedroom, I did not particulary want to do washing whilst on holiday.

Plus it would have been nice to have some pool lights

Overall a relaxing holiday with only little niggly things

Owner's Response: Thank you for feedback on our Villa, I am glad you have a relaxing time whilst on your holiday. The Villa is situated in the quaint typically Portuguese village, which has 2 very good restaurants and another bar café that serves excellent Portuguese style snacks. Coopers is a great restaurant but just 200 feet across from Coopers is an excellent traditional Portuguese restaurant that severs dishes like char grilled fresh grilled, pork and chicken. Both the Café bar and restaurant are excellent value for money. About 300 feet away from Coopers next to the café bar there is a great mini market that is well stocked and open 7 days a week, and sells everything you would need for a holiday stay. We have reviewed the directions to the villa and made a couple of minor alterations. It is great to know that our management company were available to talk to en-route and help guide you in. It is instances like these that they are there for to make your holiday more enjoyable. Welcome packs are available on our booking form. The management company have changed the bulb and tested them all and they are all working perfectly. The lights around the pool area are on a sensor so they switch on automatically as it gets dark this is working 100%. We are sorry you have a few issues during your stay and thank you for your feedback and four star rating, we hope to see you again at Casa Donald. Thank you

Great location, great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Great base for exploring what the Algarve has to offer. Casa Donald has all the amenities you need and is well equipped for a comfortable stay. The views are outstanding as were some of the glorious sunsets. 10/15 minutes to some wonderful beaches. Vilamoura has some wonderful restaurants. Close enough to something for everyone, young and old alike. The pool was a great place to spend the days when we stayed in. Paul and Natalie were both very helpful. Looking forward to our return

Relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Casa Donald, you couldn't ask for a better holiday, the views from the balcony and sun terrace are spectacular, the well kept gardens with their beautiful flowers and fruit trees are visited regularly by azure Magpies and too many butterfly species to mention, the villa itself is homely, we'll equipped and very comfortable and is only a short walk from a couple of quaint local restaurants, the walk is a pleasant one, through groves of olive and fig trees, and the staff at these restaurants are friendly and welcoming, The villa manager Paul is very friendly and keen to help and gave us some great, local knowledge tips on where to eat and visit, all in all a great holiday, we will be booking again soon!

Great location, great pool

  • 4 of 5

Great location (short easy drives to Faro old town and the many beautiful beaches). Beautiful views, great pool. The local village is charming and we enjoyed both Coopers bar for a few evening drinks and the family run Portuguese restaurant (excellent food). The villa itself is spacious and the owner was professional and helpful in all communications. In summary, it is a great base from which to experience the best of the Algarve.

A lovely break

  • 5 of 5

Casa Donald was just as we hoped. Plenty of room for 5 adults in a peaceful location with beautiful views. Unfortunately we picked the wrong week weather-wise but the pool, and a nearby golf course, were enjoyed by the men. A couple of evenings were spent at Coopers, great to be able to walk there and it was a very welcoming bar with good food.

Location

From the Owner

We have owned this villa since 2000. It is ideal for anyone wanting privacy and suitable as a family home and very comfortable. It goes without saying that we love Portugal and especially the Loule area where our home is. The swimming pool is well maintained and in pristine condition and can be heated if required. We have land around the house some of which is garden and the rest is wild and full of trees, shrubs and flowers. There are other houses nearby but we are not overlooked which gives us privacy.
