About Sharon and Christian Andrew

Sharon & Chris, the owners have two teenage daughters and live and work in the UK.

Sharon and Christian Andrew purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Sharon and Christian Andrew chose Vale de Garrão

We were introduced to Dunas Douradas by some good friends and we all had such a fantastic time that we returned a few months later and decided to purchase this apartment and haven't looked back. It's a fantastic place to spend time with the family and we love spending the day at the nearby golden sandy beach enjoying warm climate and outdoor/beach lifestyle. It's also a great to have a Beach BBQ and glass of wine whilst watching the sun set over the Algarve. At the beachfront are world famous beachfront restaurants such as Julia's, Maria's and Izzy's that serve wonderful food.

What makes this apartment unique

The close proximity of Faro airport makes it great for short breaks / long weekends too. It is also great for golfers as there are two championships golf courses within a few minutes of our apartment.

Comfortable apartment in quiet complex

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a short stay recently in this comfortable, clean, well equipped apartment, situated about 10mins walk (uphill on the walk back!) from the beach. The complex was quiet and had a large, very clean swimming pool with plenty of sun beds available. We enjoyed an excellent meal at Xenia the restaurant in the complex and also at 'Monica's' which is a short drive away.

We had excellent communication from the owner, prior to our visit, always answering all queries very quickly.

All staff in the complex were very polite and spoke good English. The reception staff were exceptionally helpful and always eager to help when necessary ( they lent my daughter a hairdryer!!)

Perfect destination for either a weekend or longer

  • 5 of 5

I lived in this area 30 years ago! Although now almost unrecognisable it is still fabulous and the best bits remain! Julia's Beach Bar better than ever and the walk to the beach is fine. We stayed for a long weekend: didn't bother with a car: enjoyed wonderful coffee on the terrace at Dunas Douradas: deliciously long lunches at the beach and lots of walking through the surf. This is the first break my husband and I have had on our own for the best part of 20 years and we are already planning a return visit in December. He is now truly converted to the benefits of a short, stress-free break. The property was perfect in every way: very clean and well maintained: the resort staff were friendly and helpful and the owners sent excellent information. We have already recommended to several friends!
