About Maureen and Frank Dorans

My husband and I currently live in Lytham St Annes, we bought 'The Bolthole' in 2006 having been regular visitors to Portugal over many years. The house has undergone extensive refurbishment since 2006 and we've stayed there extensively during the past few years, The house is very much our home and has been used only for family and friends so it reflects our taste and reflects our lifestyle and personality.

Maureen and Frank Dorans purchased this villa in 2006

Why Maureen and Frank Dorans chose Portugal

Before purchasing 'The Bolthole' in 2006, my husband and I spent a lot of time considering where was wanted to purchase our second property. We considered Florida and Spain, we travelled to many different resorts in Portugal but we continued to return to Vale Do Lobo as it provided everything we were looking for in terms of on site resort facilities, wonderful beaches, Spa facilities and fitness centre with easy access to golf for the family, Vale Do Lobo also benefits from being approximately 20 minutes from Faro airport. Over the years we've made friends with a number of local people, it's a wonderful area to visit and a wonderful place to stay either for short / long term breaks..

What makes this villa unique

The Villa is unique in that it is the only detached Aldeamento in the locality. It is on a corner position, has south facing terraces and is only three minutes from the beach in one direction and three minutes from the golf courses, gym and resort reception in the other direction. Bedroom 2 has lovely views of the sea.

A lovely property, in a great location

  • 4 of 5

It felt like we were staying in a friend's home, rather than a rented property. Immaculately presented, clean and in a very handy location. Close to the beach, amenities and the all important golf course!!

Would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at The Bolthole. We do try to ensure that we present a more homely feel rather than a standard rental accommodation. Our guests we treat as 'friends' with some returning year after year. It's great to hear that our efforts are appreciated! Thank you

Delightful place to enjoy a relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful home from home place to stay. Immaculately kept with all the facilities you need for a relaxing holiday. Bigger than we expected and the 3rd floor room and roof terrace (which isn't on any of the images) is a great place to chill out at the end of the day when the sun has gone down. We were holidaying with 2 teenagers, so it also provided the perfect dynamics for us to do our own thing if we wanted to, ie watch TV or listen to music. Great location, as you are just a few minutes walk from the beach, pool and The Praca, which is where the bars and restaurants are located. Only slight downside was the only local supermarket was closed for refurbishment , so the nearest was a 10 minute taxi ride away. The good news is that it will be open in the next few days. All in all would definitely recommend the Bolthole as a place to stay.

Owner's Response: Delighted that our guests enjoyed their stay at The Bolthole. Apologies about the Supermarket, we were notified that the refurbishment would take no more than 5 days so had expected the work to be done and the supermarket reopened before our guests arrived. Sorry about that, hope it didn't spoil your holiday.

november in the bolthole

  • 5 of 5

the bolthole is very clean modern and well maintained-we were met by Liz who welcomed us to the property.it was good to be warm with a gas fire and plenty of utensils in the kitchen to live comfortably for a monthI would recommend this property as it is local to l facilities.l the restaurants were closing down because of maintenance but the local golf club house has gourmet food, entertainment -also the restaurant on dunas dourada was excellent.

location is very busy -traffic is constantly flowing past 24 hours even out of season as they they are building a villa right opposite so it was very noisy but that's not going to happen all the time -we loved our stay in the bolthole

Owner's Response: I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay at The Bolthole. I can only apologise for the noise from the site where the new house is being built. we have been advised that the external building work will be complete in summer 2015, so hopefully if you choose to stay again it will be quieter.
