The owner has equipped this villa with a lot more than one normally gets in a holiday rental. The villa was spotless, well furnished and situated in a gorgeous location.My only criticism is that I found the pillows very uncomfortable, sorry about this complaint because otherwise I think the villa deserves 10/10

                                                                                                  I booked this holiday during a somewhat traumatic period in my life last year and I have to say it was a bit of a shot in the dark. I'd never used Owners Direct before, but the photo's and the reviews looked good so I thought, "Oh, just go for it!" I'm so, so glad I did! We took the ferry from Portsmouth to Bilbao and drove down to the villa which is a fantastic experience in itself. As other reviewers have correctly mentioned it is accessed down a dusty unmade track but having studied the maps and Google Earth, we were prepared for that and the coordinates provided by Dominic took us straight to the door and Elizabeth's instructions that, "The key's under the mat!" proved to be spot on too. Casa Dominico is well appointed with everything that is listed on the web site. We found it spotlessly clean with fresh linen and scrumptious towels. Elizabeth had arranged, as requested, a welcome pack of food in the fridge which I recommend asking Dominic to arrange for you. Just let him know what you think you may need and the cost is taken out of your breakages deposit. The pool is the icing on the cake! When we arrived, the Algarve were experiencing the hottest September temperatures for 85 years. With the car thermometer reading 45 degrees it was bliss just to jump in. The pool lights were not working which was a bit disappointing, but Elizabeth was aware. There is a book listing good places to eat though with nowhere within walking distance, we tended to cook in the villa so you will need to look to other reviewers for recommendations for that. Moncarapacho has two good small supermarkets where you can get all your essentials. For a more comprehensive shop, Tavira, 20 minutes away has a large shopping mall which includes a Continente 'hypermarket' which is well signposted as you enter the town. What we enjoyed most about the villa was its isolated location and with the exception of aircraft on their approach to Faro airport, the peace and quiet. Perfect for relaxing and winding down. As with any location in a hot climate, insects can be an issue. Here at Casa Dominico it was ants in the kitchen. We finally got on top of the problem after four or five days with a good ant killing aerosol from the village hardware store, so be prepared. Communication with Dominic before and with the run up to the holiday was excellent and the same with Elizabeth (the local agent) whilst there. Would I recommend the villa? Well, we're going back!

We found the whole holiday from start to finish perfect from the welcome ,with much appreciated welcome pack,wine beer cakes and much more to a farewell drink at the secret restaurant (Snackbar Churrasquera Jorge & Lia) a must visit just behind apartment.Everything in the other reviews are correct Tavirapad wants for nothing every conceivable extra is provided. it is in a perfect location very short walk to town and to train station so a car is not necessary. Favourite restaurant this visit was Xico through the square and just up the hill. As good as Tavirapad is without doubt the best part are the owners Merry & Simon who are two of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet. Would recommend and will return next time we visit tavira David brides, 15 Sep 2016
