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.

Had the pool heated and was 28.5c and the kids loved jumping in every morning. Contact with owner was very accessible and info and welcome basket in the villa a lovely touch. will be rebooking

                                                                                                    4 of 5
                                                                                                    This is a very nice, home away from home, town house with a good location. A few minutes walk to the very nice beach (saying hello to the turtles on the way, stopping for a cocktail in the Beach Club on the way home). The descriptions on the web site are accurate. The house was clean, tidy and very, very comfortable. The best bits; eating breakfast on the roof terrace, lunch or dinner in the outside shaded dining area, my husband cooking dinner on the bbq, my 9 year old daughter having great fun in the pool, my 19 year old daughter topping up her tan in one of the many loungers, a cold glass (or more) of wine or beer on the terrace, relaxing, laughing and family time in a very comfortable environment. The worst bits; having to leave to come home again. Good location if you have a car, we visited restaurants in Vale do Lobo, Quinta do Lago and Villamoura. You don't need to have a car though, local restaurants all worth a visit include; The Beach Club, Xenia's (which is at the reception area), Maria's, Julia's and Izzy restaurants which are all a stroll along the beach. The only thing that could have made this holiday any better was to have a covered over car port or shaded parking area. The temperatures were up in the 30'sC most days so getting into the car was never that pleasant, thank goodness for air conditioning. All in all, my family and I would recommend this accommodation and location. We had a fabulous, relaxing holiday.

I would like to stresse the good administrative support we had to this rental - effective, kind and helpful. Very good logistics for the family. We hope to repeat it this year :) Best Luisa Chaves
