About the Owner

My husband's family has been holidaying in Vale Do Lobo and the surrounding area since 1974 and we have been going there as a family for the past eighteen years. It's such a great place for all ages with so many things to do. The golf, weather, restaurants, beaches are all fabulous. It's only a twenty minute drive from Faro airport. We love it so much there that we have bought this villa which is like a home from home.

Beautifully refurbished villa

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with this villa and its location, we have re-booked for next year. The villa is very tastefully refurbished and is complete with everything you could wish for. We were really impressed. It was spotlessly clean on arrival and the daily maid service kept it this way throughout our stay. The villa owners are very helpful and answered our many emailed questions before our stay. The management company were friendly and promptly responded to queries. The villa is close to the resort pool and restaurant and only a short walk from a lovely beach. The villa pool is a good size, very clean and a nice temperature. We ate out regularly at the pool bar and Xenia restaurant as well as visiting La Praca in Vale do Lobo to listen to live music. We walked back to the villa along the beach from here which takes about 30 minutes. The Albatross restaurant is nice at Dunas Douradas Beach Club and very good value. We did not hire a car, the taxis and transfers were really reliable and much cheaper than car hire. Aquashow water park is a few miles away and is a really fun day out, lots of water slides and rides. You can book tickets through reception who can also organise your transport if required. We had a really relaxing holiday in this lovely villa and cannot wait to go back next year.

Lovely Villa for a Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This villa was exactly what the advert says and more. The owner was particularly helpful with our enquiries. Outside is a lovely private pool with sun loungers and beautiful garden furniture, a Barbie for those lazy evening meals. The garden and pool are well maintained and a joy to be in.

Inside the villa it is furnished to a very high standard. There are three large bedrooms and three bathrooms. The kitchen was well equipped and the dining room and lounge furnished to a very high standard. The standard of cleanliness throughout was very impressive. This is a luxury villa in the true sense of the word. For those who like to keep up with the latest news and soaps there is satellite tv. For golfers the villa is next door to Vale de Lobo.

The Dunas Douradas complex is beautifully kept and has a large communal pool, restaurant and mini market where you can buy milk, cereals, bread etc.

The beach is a short walk away and well worth a visit as are the restaurants on the beach, Maria's, Julia's and Izzy's. We visited the first two and can recommend them.

We used Sun Transfers to and from Faro Airport and hired a car from VDL Car Hire (through Dunas Douradas reception) but would have been better pre-booking car hire at Faro Airport. We visited Tavira (the Venice of the Algarve), Portimao, Alvor and Vilamoura, all lovely places especially Tavira.

The villa was well serviced, clean and a joy to be in. The fact that Faro airport is just 20 minutes away by car is an added bonus. We have no hesitation in recommending the villa and the area to anyone. We will certainly be back.

Lovely Villa for a Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful villa with its own private pool, sun loungers and lovely garden furniture. Inside the villa the furnishings were first class, kitchen a delight with all the equipment you need. The dining room and lounge were large and roomy. Satellite TV so you could keep up to date with all your favourite programmes.

The villa was impeccable throughout. Three large bedrooms, three bathrooms. We were struck by the cleanliness of the property and the quality of the furnishings. Plenty towels and beach towels.

The property was exactly as described and exceeded our expectations. We would certainly come back again.

Dunas Douradas is a lovely complex with an onsite restaurant, Xenias, small mini-market with milk, bread, fruit etc. The beach is a short walk away and well worth a visit. At the beach are a variety of restaurants including, Maria's, Julia's and Izzy's. We sampled the first two and can recommend them. You will have to book Maria's ahead. For golfers Vale de Lobo is next door.

We used Sun Transfers from the airport to the villa and hired a car from VDL car hire (reception will do this for you) but in retrospect we would have been better booking a car from the airport at Faro - cheaper and more convenient. We visited Tavira, Portimao, Alvor (where we had sardinas) and Vilamoura. They were all worth a visit especially Tavira which is known as the Venice of the Algarve.

We have no hesitation in recommending this villa. It is everything you could wish for and more and is ideally situated only 20 minutes by car from Faro Airport.

The owners were extremely helpful and gave good advice.
