The house was spacious and clean and the outside area and pool a real treat. The property is ideally located with a supermarket just metres away and a lovely square with bars and restaurants less than 5 minutes walk. The beach is around 10 mins walk and lovely and sandy. We would definitely return to the property and the area and already talking about a trip next year!
Stayed September 2019
Lovely villa!! Looks exactly like the pictures.
2 minute walk to the grocery store and several restaurants.
5 minutes walk to the beautiful beach do Falésia!!
Would definitely stay here again!
Super long weekend away with friends
This is a very spacious property with an excellent pool and sunbathing area, plenty of bathrooms and walking distance to the gorgeous Falesia beach. Having the small supermarket so close was really handy for us to pop and fetch supplies.
Jan and the housekeeper were very flexible around our arrival and departure times, which was really helpful. They also responded quickly, and resolved, a small hot water problem we had one morning
It would be useful if the notes about the property, facilities and local area were in English as well as German. This way we might have worked out the air conditioning system a little sooner!
Overall wonderful time at Villa Doura 2. Beautiful outdoors area. Really enjoyed grilling outdoors and swimming in the pool. Short walk to the beach. Excellent convenience supermarket next door food options and tours agency all within 5 minutes walk or less. Jan was super responsive. The housekeeper only speaks Portuguese but we were able to communicate fine.
Great location, house and pool
Our group of two families from the USA truly enjoyed our stay at Jan’s house. The house was spacious for our group and we enjoyed the multiple outside spaces for dining depending on the sun of the day. The location was excellent with food and shopping a few minutes away and the beach ~10 min walk. The pool was a fun and warm break from the ocean; our kids were in it all the time.
Falésia is a scenic beach that is not crowded like some areas closer to Albufeira.
Jan was gracious and his Portuguese house caretaker made sure we were comfortable.
A dream come true!
Me and my girl friends had a WONDERFUL long weekend at Villa Douro!
Jan was quick to respond during booking and check in was simple.
Almost too good to be true, we had everything we needed and only a short (& cheap) Uber into the main town of Albuferia.
Cant wait to book again and go back to the beautiful Villa Douro!!
