Things to do

Relax on the Beach:

The beaches of the Algarve are one of the main attractions. Visitors to Dunas Douradas can enjoy a number of clean stretches of sand, all within a 10-15-minute walk. The Beach Club Dunas Douradas has a great bar with lounge and umbrella rentals, and a simple walk eastward towards Faro leads to any number of fine sandy beaches.

Praia da Quinta do Lago:

This beach is made up of soft sand and clean waters. It expands all the way from Vale do Lobo to the Ria Formosa, and a convenient wooden walkway leads visitors along the length of the beach. Some restaurants can be found here, and a few have terrific views of the Ria Formosa.

Golf:

For the golf tourist, the Algarve region is the place to visit. Over 35 courses are located in the region, and some of the finest can be found near Dunas Douradas: a championship level golf course at Quinta do Lago, the Ocean and Royal courses in Vale do Lobo as well as five courses in nearby Vilamoura.

Sao Lourenco Church:

This church dates back to 1730; a quarter century after its construction, a massive earthquake struck the region, destroying almost every last structure. The church in Sao Lourenco remained however and today offers visitors a unique glimpse into life as it once was. Blue and white tiles alongside intricate woodwork adorn the interior.

Faro:

The Algarvian capital is well worth a visit: the 'cidade velha', or Old Town, is an interesting site including parts of the original wall that still surround the cathedral and bishop's palace. In addition, boats to the beautiful Ria Formosa reserve take off from Faro city centre.

Vilamoura:

The fashionable town of Vilamoura is located about eight miles from Dunas Douradas. An impressive selection of fine restaurants and designer shops line the marina, and the Museu Cerra da Vila highlights the city’s Roman past.

Villa is spacious, beautifully furnished and set in a select quiet area of Dunas Douradas. All four bedrooms have en-suite facilities and the master bedroom is sensational with several balconies to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. The villa is easily reached from the airport in twenty minutes and is ideally situated for the beach and there are a number of excellent restaurants within walking distance. We enjoyed some delicious meals looking out over the sea and watching the sunset. The heated swimming pool was so inviting and we swam every day. There is a large table in the garden to enjoy meals al fresco! Our holiday passed all too quickly but we will certainly be returning to this stunning villa!

Roomy, well maintained and can accommodate up to 8 people very comfortably. The view across the complex and out to sea from the upstairs dining area is stunning and it also has a retractable canopy to give shade for lunchtimes. The pool is larger than most villas in the area with plenty of space for sunbeds. The gas barbecue is easy to use and there is a fridge adjacent to the pool to keep everyone fully hydrated during the hot summer days. My family have been holidaying on the Dunas complex for over 10 years now and this villa is our first choice.
