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.

The quality of the décor and the taste is wonderful. It has everything you need and more. It is incredibly clean, very comfortable and we cannot recommend it enough. It is a home to relax and have fun it at the same time. We are already booked to return.

We were impressed with the description and location of the villa and this did not disappoint at all on arrival. Communications in advance were detailed and timely. The villa is spacious, well equipped and tastefully decorated. The cleaning service was discreet. The location is great being in a gated residency but close to the supermarket and an easy walk to the beach and Praca What really made our break memorable was the great communications, information sharing and flexibility about our stay from Nicky, the owner. Her knowledge of the resort and enthusiasm to share her enjoyment of it was commendable. She even organised fabulous weather. We would recommend a visit to others and hope to return in future.
