About Iain Dove

We are a family with 2 children who are 7 years old and 5 years old, we have created a home for us with all the ingredients needed for a family holiday, if the kids are happy we are! We decided to rent out the house as it is too nice to be left alone too long!

Look forward to hearing from you.

Iain Dove purchased this villa in 2005

Why Iain Dove chose Vilamoura

It is a twenty minute drive from the airport, near beautiful beaches on a golf course, communal pool and gardens with lovely families, perfect place to go and relax.

Luxurious and spacious property in fab location

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th stay in the Algarve, but our first time staying on a resort with a shared pool and I have to say we were very impressed. The property is beautiful. Spacious, light, airy with probably the best view and location in the Palmyra phase of the Vila Sol resort. The roof terrace was especially nice, with plenty of furniture to have evening meals or bathe on a lounger, not to mention the brilliant BBQ. The pool is beautiful, without doubt the nicest on the resort and the property could not have been better placed with direct access from the ground floor terrace. The property was a great size for our two families, with 4 adults and 4 children under the age of 9. Iain was a great help in the run up to our stay, providing all the information I needed and even phoning me to go over everything before we travelled. The welcome pack on arrival was one of the best we've ever had, with milk, bread, cheese, ham, water not to mention wine and beer! We will definitely return. Thank you Iain for a lovely stay at your delightful property in Palmyra, Vila Sol.

This is an excellent villa! It has four spacious bedrooms, the master is particularly impressive. The lounge and kitchen have everything you could wish for. The roof space, overlooking the pool area is a great place to spend time, whether having a barbecue of just having a quiet drink whilst watching the sun go down. The pool area is literally 20 yards away and is very clean. We travelled with another family (8 of us in total) and used a local taxi firm, which provided mini buses at very reasonable prices. I would definitely recommend this villa

A Great Place to Go

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house on a lovely complex, both the house and grounds are very well maintained. With the facilities in this property and the proximity of the pool make this is a great place for families with young children. I would recommend hiring a car whilst staying here as whilst Vilamoura and a host of restaurants are close by there are numerous attractions further afield that I would recommend visiting if you are with the kids with the likes of albufeira, zoomarine, aquashow etc definitely worth visiting.

The property owners were very helpful, good to deal with and I would be happy to recommend this property to friends - we will be looking to come back.

If you do visit try the Moon restaurant which is under new management and does the finest steak around

Immaculate villa with lovely pool and gardens

  • 5 of 5

The villa was lovely, spacious and immaculately presented. I stayed there with my husband and two children aged 10 and 13. The pool was ideal for families with small children and is set in lovely private gardens which are really well maintained.

We didn't use the golf facilities but these appeared to be very good. The restaurants on the site were also very good.The villa is a short drive to the marina and some very nice sandy beaches but I would recommend that you hire a car to get around.

The property is very well maintained and a welcome pack is provided on arrival. Any problems are dealt with very promptly by the lady who looks after the property.

Overall this is a lovely villa which I would thoroughly recommend.

Lovely Luxury Peaceful Villa overlooking the Pool

  • 5 of 5

After arriving at a relatively small Faro airport which is highly organised we proceeded to collect our car and took an approximate 20 minute drive to the Villa. Just before reaching the Villa, there is a large choice of various Supermarkets where we decided to stock up! We then proceeded to the Villa that is a complex accessed by secure private electronic gates. The first impressions on entering the Villa were extremely impressive. The lounge / main living area is extremely spacious with seating areas for many people. The owners have clearly recently invested in the décor / interior and furniture etc, which is done to a very tasteful high standard. The rear of the property at all levels looks over the pool which is just a few metres away. The rest of the property has been completed to the same high standard throughout.

Outside of the property, the gardens are extremely well maintained and of a very high standard. There are the usual local shops / restaurants which are close to the main golf complex in Vilamora itself, which is a short drive or walk away.

We will certainly be returning to this lovely Villa - as long as we can get a 'slot' before everyone else discovers.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely and spacious in a great location on the complex.

It's really nicely furnished, very well maintained and had been meticulously cleaned when we arrived. We arrived quite late but there was a welcome pack with enough goodies to get us through a snack supper and breakfast. Much appreciated not having to do a midnight run trying to find a shop open!

The swimming pool on the complex has a large shallow section as well as a separate small children's pool so was great for our toddlers! The communal gardens are beautifully maintained...feels like a 5* resort.

It was five mins drive to the marina and the beach and right next door to golf course and academy.

The house has a fab roof terrace which we didn't get to take full advantage of on this trip so will definitely be getting up there more when we book again for next year. We went in May and it was very quiet so imagine would be really good time for those without kids too!

Highly recommend!
