About Norann Mowat

My husband and I have lived in Kent for 30 years. We have four children who are now grown up and flown the nest and are working in London. Peter has recently retired so we are looking forward to spending some of the winter months at the villa, while playing golf and enjoying some wonderful restaurant meals in Vilamoura.

Why Norann Mowat chose Vilamoura

My daughter and I spent a week in Vilamoura last May and fell in love with the place. We had some lovely evenings out at the Marina and took a boat trip along the coast which is amazing. The beaches are beautiful and clean and we loved the weather. I loved it so much I returned in September with my husband. While we were there we had a look at some properties and found this lovely villa in a perfect location away from the hubbub of town but near enough to enjoy the wonderful attractions in the area. We are really looking forward to spending some time here with our family and friends.

What makes this villa unique

The beauty of this villa is its relaxing atmosphere with sunshine all day long on the pool area and upstairs terraces. It is totally secluded and not overlooked, yet only minutes from the beautiful beaches of Vilamoura and Quarteria as well as the amenities and night life.

Very pretty villa

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa everything you need is just here. Lovely quiet location but not to far to drive to the marina. Would definitely recommend the villa and will use again.

Very Impressed!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my family stayed at Villa Veronika for a week in August and had a lovely time. The villa stands on a very pretty plot and is incredibly peaceful with the pool area and gardens wrapping themselves very nicely around the property. The villa itself is very spacious and very well appointed with lovely furnishings. We hired a car so were able to get to either Villamoura Marina in about 10 minutes or to the supermarkets in less than 5 minutes. Despite their proximity however returning to the villa always felt very quiet and peaceful. We would love to go back one day and would definitely stay at Villa Veronika again!!

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely 10 night stay in villa Veronica where we found the villa very spacious clean and well equipped with everything needed. The villa however in a quiet secluded area is also only minutes away from all main roads, easy accessible to the marina by car, there is a number for a very reliable taxi which we used regularly thanks to Norann for that information.

The outside space is fabulous, the pool area just fantastic everything we wanted and more for chilling out which is what we had planned.

During our stay we had cleaners come in to change the beds gave us clean towels, the gardens and pool area was attended to regular which we found most professional.

Norann was always on hand if we needed to ask questions and for that we'd like to say a big thank you as you made our stay memorable and just perfect!!!

Delightful Villa - beautifully presented

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at this delightful villa. We had such a good time the first year so when we decided to go to Vilamoura again it was a no brainer. The villa is as the owners say completely secluded. It is furnished to a high standard with comfortable furniture including the beds. There is ample crockery and cutlery and glassware. The TV is large and comes with and abundance of UK and Sky channels. The rooms are large and airy and the gardens and pool area are beautiful and spacious. The air conditioning works very well although with the main large door and windows open we only needed to use this through the night in the bedroom. The villa is maintained to a high standard and is spotlessly clean. Norann and Peter are on hand from the moment you book the holiday until you return. They always respond quickly to you and are very polite and friendly and Jose who Maintains the property is a delightful man and very helpful. Full details of the villa, directions and contact numbers are provided before you leave. A welcome book provides full details of the villa and local amenities. I would strongly recommend having the pool heated as it made such a difference and we used it far more than if it was cold.

Vilamoura and Querteria have amazing beaches and the restaurants serve great food at prices to suit all budgets. The Marina is very special day or night. The locals are so friendly - overall a thoroughly great place for a relaxing holiday.

If you are looking for a villa that is home from home and want to receive a professional service try Villa Veronika

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our first holiday abroad for all of our close family 4 adults 2 small children and a baby and what a fabulous choice we made to spend it in this lovely Villa. Its very private and set in a well kept large garden. It had everything our family needed, children loved the pool.. and the TV which kept them amused and out of the sun for a while. The owners were incredibly helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We felt very spoilt and it's set the bar very high for any future holidays. Would definitely love to return.

Fantastic property.

  • 5 of 5

Right from booking this property Norann was really helpful. The information sent to us prior to our departure was so helpful. The info included directions complete with photos of how to get to the Villa and this was invaluable. The property itself was fantastic, it was clean, well maintained and lovely and spacious. The gardens are fabulous with lots of space to sunbathe, eat, drink and relax. We enjoyed many evenings making full use of the outside dining area and 10 days making full use of the sun loungers!! The children (and adults) loved the pool which we opted to have heated and they spent most of everyday playing in it. Jose the pool Maintenance guy was so lovely and helpful too. Everything you need is very close by (but you will need a car as everything is driving distance) the Continente Supermarket is approx 5 mins drive and the marina with all its restaurants, bars and beautiful boats, is approx 15 minutes. We hired a speed boat and went on a dolphin Safari from the Marina. I would highly recommend this property as a place to go to relax and enjoy the wonderful sunshine. We would definitely go back. XX
