We have just returned from 2 wonderful weeks staying at the Villa Una, it is set in a very secluded and tranquil location and is maintained to the highest standard.

The facilities and overall condition of the property are superb and the maintenance guys and cleaners come into the property on a regular basis and leave the place spotless. We had a couple of minor queries and the local management company are pretty much on hand and available 24/7 and are very easy (and fun!) to deal with.

Close to the golf courses, beach and the shops and restaurants it could not be placed in a better location.

We are already planning to return to the Villa Una and have nothing but fantastic memories of our family "Summer 16" holiday in what can only be described as a beautiful place.

Go for it! you won't be disappointed.

Villa Una

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Villa Una for two glorious weeks and it had all the facilities we were looking for and more, with plenty of space for all. The heated pool was great, although it was very warm when we were there so probably not needed. The wi fiworked very well as did the tv channels. All in all a good villa to stay in and we would have no hesitation in returning.

Peaceful Sanctury

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa in May-16 and can describe it as fantastic for our family group (4 adults and 1 child). The facilities in the villa were great - in particular the wifi, the UK cable tv and the heated swimming pool. All of the facilities were in perfect working order and if anyone has any security concerns, when we forgot to immediately turn off the alarm and it went off, the security team were there within 5 mins. The one thing that is really fantastic about this villa is that it is in a very quiet cul de sac and that the pool area although at the road side of the house is secluded by plants and has all day sun given the aspect. A really fantastic week for us - we will certainly be back.

Fantastic villa highly recommend

Perfect villa for our group of 6. Very spacious living areas and bedrooms were all a good size with lovely modern bathrooms. The pool and garden areas are really well kept with a great BBQ area. Perfect location just a short stroll to the beach. Would definitely return.

The Wow Factor - highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 and have just come home from Villa Una. It is the first time we have booked direct with the owners and I was a little bit apprehensive. However, the owners were really helpful and replied to my emails and questions very efficiently. Booking was simple! The villa is beautiful and very spacious. It is in a very peaceful position. It is very well equipped, modern and clean. There are a selection of DVD’s, books and magazines all available to use. The wifi and TV are an added bonus! The heated pool kept my family happy most of the day and we spent our time between the pool and the beach which was a 15 minute stroll away. We were also able to use the communal pool and tennis courts where there is also a great restaurant. There were several more restaurants all within a 15 minute stroll away and we enjoyed evening meals at Maria’s, Julia’s and Izzy’s, all right on the beach. We didn’t hire a car as we were happy to stay in Dunas Douradas but we did get a taxi into Vilamoura one day which was about 20 minutes away. The marina is well worth a visit for shopping and enjoying a meal in one of the many restaurants overlooking the boats in the marina. We enjoyed our holiday so much that we are hoping to return to the villa next year!

Top Drawer!

  • 5 of 5

Just on our way home from a brilliant break at Casa Una. Beautifully appointed in every way. Fantastic space inside and out. Heated pool for when didn't want to be on the beach. Hired a car, but spent most of the time at the villa or the great beaches, which we walked to. Top restaurants all a close walk away. I know you shouldn't, but having UK tv channels and especially all the sport on Sky or BT is a massive plus! 5- 10 mins from top golf courses and a selection of several good supermarkets. Couldn't fault this villa or the brilliant service from the owners. Thank you.
