About russell longmuir

Russell & Niquette moved to The Algarve last year after buying Villa Storm, that has been in the family for 25 years.

They have completely renovated the villa & cottage, modernising it while keeping its unique charm that was created by the Dutch architect Ib Storm who built and designed the property.

They have 2 children aged 12 & 17, and have created a home from home where clients can 'kick off' their shoes and relax with everything that they and their children require.

As they live in the area they will be on hand to help if you have any special requirements, from shopping to babysitting!

They have amassed an array of children's toys over the years that will keep the adults amused as well!

Perfect villa and perfect hosts... this villa is ideal for families or groups of friends, the layout lends itself for some degree of privacy with quiet areas, play areas for children with table tennis and ball tennis and even a basketball net . It is zoned in three areas of living a two bedroomed cottage in the grounds, three bedrooms upstairs ground level and two bedrooms poolside which are ideal for teenagers wanting space to themselves, and the outdoor area is just stunning. In fact we hardly left the villa... we enjoyed sitting around the fire pit and in the pod with a large chilled glass of wine.... We were a party of five middle aged ladies and have stayed in VDL in the past, Villa Storm was by far the best both for ambience and homeliness. We paid extra for the maid service and heated pool and it was money well worth spending. Russell and his wife went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Perhaps I shouldn't be writing this review you will all want to stay! Thanks Russell we had a FAB time...

3 families took over this villa last easter. Perfect for all ages of children, and the owner was more than generous in letting us use any toys, dvds etc.

Lots of different areas within the house and garden- 3 terraces and 2 houses, so we weren't on top of each other.

V spacious feel inside and decorated in a contemporary style.

High standards of cleanliness and maid service.

Thank you Russel for being so hands on and helpful every time we had a query. We look forward to coming again soon.

The best beach in the area, "Julias Beach" is a 5 minute walk from the villa - there is a hidden path that leads you past the nature reserve, great for spotting turtles, and over the sand dunes to the beach.

As well as restaurants and beach bars there is a beach concession that offers a host of watersports and has lifeguards on patrol in season.


Faro airport is 20 minutes drive.
