Guestbook comments from the owner

Spectacular elevated location providing stunning views”

We have stayed in numerous villas in The Algarve but El Dourado stands out amongst the rest....private gated 500m + drive to an elevated but level plot providing a magnificent back drop over counrtryside towards the Atlantic in the distance. Very peaceful (neighbours well apart) and as we were 7 in total (including 4 teens/early 20's) we felt relaxed and comfortable in our surroundings. Villa is very well maintained and equipped, great (gas) BBQ and super pool (heating available but didn't need it), plenty of loungers and with a plot of about 2 acres plenty of room to manouevre ! Super local Italian restaurant (excellent value and real quality) about 1 mile away in village and local mini supermarket/fuel station also. About 20 minute drive to Vilamoura/VDL/QDL. House managers just down the road if you need them (very helpful when I needed to pay a motorway toll !). Villa and area information excellent in advance and plenty of recommendations/tips on where to eat/visit in the house - great all round holiday experience

The most beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

Villa El Dorado is absolutely beautiful! My husband and I stayed here with 3 other couples in August 2014 and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It’s in the lovely little town of Santa Barbara de Nexe and situated up in the hills with a stunning view of the sea. The villa sleeps 8 with its 4 beautiful en-suite rooms, all with a lovely view. There’s a large modern kitchen with everything you need and a separate utility room. The villa has air conditioning throughout as well as under floor heating. The free Wi-Fi is great and the villa is fully furnished with comfy beds and furniture, a big flat screen TV in the lounge with Sky TV, a DVD player and HI-FI system. The grounds and garden are breath-taking with a good sized heated pool, BBQ area and lovely terrace for dinning al fresco. This well maintained villa is in a great location in the Algarve, only a 15/20 minute drive to many beautiful beaches that all have lovely cafes and restaurants all along the sea front. There is a lovely Italian restaurant call La Piazza in the town of Santa Barbara de Nexe as well as a beautiful church, cafes and a couple of supermarkets - this is only a 1 minute drive or a 15 minute walk. This luxury villa is perfect for family holidays too so we will definitely be returning next year with ours. Thank you to the owners for letting us stay at their spectacular villa and making our holiday unforgettable :)

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

We (7 adults and one 3 year old girl) spent a week in this lovely villa in May 2009.

The descrption and details provided on before hand were all accurate, the customer service and availability of Peter and his contacts on site was excellent. The villa has all facilities you can ask for and was very well maintained. The villa was our base for different kinds of acitivities during the week - kite-surfing, golfing, hiking, sightseeing tours and for some of us days full of just relaxing and playing by the pool (heated to perfect temperature -well worth the extra charge!). In the evening we mostly stayed at home and took turns at the out door BBQ.

Thanks for a fantastic week at your place!

Anders with family
