Superb villa!

5 of 5
The perfect place for a relaxing holiday! 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!
