About Maria Nunes

We bought this Villa as we fell in love with Portugal and particularily this area as it is safe, quiet and it is has all the things that makes Portgual so special: beautiful beaches, amazing golf courses, tremendous tennis facilities, blissful weather all year around and fabulous food. The children in our family remember this as a very special place from their childhood holidays and now as teenagers they love and look forward to being here with friends and family: relaxing and sunbathing by the pool, walks on the beach, shopping in Faro/Algarve and best of all just spending time together. We hope you will enjoy your time here too and leave the villa with fond memories.

Maria Nunes purchased this villa in 1990

Why Maria Nunes chose Vale do Garrão

Dunas Douradas is a lovely area set in pine trees and very close to the beaches and the resorts of Vale De Lobo and Quinta de Lago. The nearest beach area is Praia Do Garrao’ one of the loveliest beaches. The park de Formosa is a protected area of lagoons and wet areas that support the local wildlife population. The Dunas Douradas resort itself is very family friendly. It has a large roman style swimming pool and also a smaller children's pool. There is a communcal bbq area but the resort also has the famous Xenia Restaurant which is open for lunch and dinner. Most of the villas in Dunas Dourada are privately owned with their own pool and beautiful gardens. Faro airport is 20minute drive away and the coastal route to Albufeira, Sagres is less than 10 minutes away.
