About Mr David Norris

I live in England with my 2 children Bradley and Liberty and work with my business partner importing goods from overseas together with managing the property rental business. We like to spend most of our holidays at the villa and are always upgrading and modernising the decor and furnishings and keeping the property to a high standard and maintained. We love our home in the Algarve and are sure you will too ! New to 2013 is the "Love Bed" which is a fantastic way to spend an afternoon relaxing with a book and glass of sangria (or two :-) ) Hope that you visit us soon - Obrigado !

Mr David Norris purchased this villa in 2005

Why Mr David Norris chose Portimão

We love Oasis Parque because of the well maintained and on site secure facilities. There are some beautiful beaches and both the Praia Da Rocha marina and Alvor village boast a great range of bars and restaurants. The area is easily accessible with Faro airport less than 40mins drive away.

Although the villa has its own heated pool with underwater lighting, Oasis Parque also has a huge indoor heated pool with Jacuzzi, Tennis Courts and play park together with cafe / restaurant which is ideal in the evenings with themed nights and BBQ's !

The Villa was built by a renown UK builder which again attracted us to buy in this area and after several years the villa still looks as good as new.

What makes this villa unique

What we enjoy as a family is the privacy and security of the villa and its surrounding area. The Oasis Parque complex has an ex-pat community, which all keep an eye out for one anothers property. It is so nice to get away from day-to-day normal life in the UK and have peace of mind that within a 2.5hr flight, you can be lazing in the heated pool with a chilled glass of Sangria and a bowl of olives whilst sunbathing. The villa is constantly being maintained and upgraded to ensure the property and furnishings are kept to as high a standard as possible. This in turn seems to attract the better rental guests who also look after the villa and treat it as their own !

Stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our group had an amazing time here. The villa is beautiful, so spacious and well equipped. It has everything you need for a large family our group of friends to be entertained for a week or more. You could easily not leave the villa for a week and be blissfully happy. The kitchen has everything, coffee machine, blender, toastie machine etc.. It was lovely making a fresh coffee or smoothie in the morning and going out to sit by the pool to enjoy it. The pool is heated too which is such an added bonus. We didn't leave too often, but Alvor was only a few minutes away in a taxi and about €6. We didn't really explore the Oasis Parque, but it was a lovely area and we felt very safe there. David was a gentleman and extremely easy to deal. Many thanks from all of us for a great holiday.

Large and airy well equipped villa

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from our lovely holiday at Villa 154, Oasis Parque in Alvor. The villa was well equipped and clean. The games room was a bonus in the very hot temperatures during the day!

We opted to have the pool heated during our stay and we were not disappointed as it meant that the children were happy to be in there all day.

We have visited Alvor a number of times and just love the place.

I would however say that if holidaying in peak season, a car is essential - if only for supermarket trips as booking a taxi can take some time.

We had a couple of issues - the air con unit in one of the bedrooms leaked water and although the engineer came out straight away, the dripping continued and as such we could not use the air conditioning in our bedroom. Also we found a parasol stand in the garden (full sun more or less all day) but no parasol. On looking further I found it in the games room, broken. Francisca said she would bring round a new one but it didn't arrive. We managed to tape it up and use it for the last week of our trip.

Overall the villa is in good order but would benefit from some minor repairs over the winter season to make it perfect!

Owner's Response: Hi Tina, August is peak season and whilst there are ample taxis available, with the heat and laid back climate then its best to pre order the taxis using the number we provided in the info pack to prevent waiting or as you say a car hire is an added luxury to also imptove this. This is the first ive got to hear on both the New Parasol being broken and put in the games room and the aircon leaking to one of the bedrooms ? Had i known i could have also pressed Francisca and her helpful team to resolve. It would be great to see you return and hope you had a fantastic holiday and thank you for your feedback ! Regards Dave

A super villa & very well looked after .

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. It has 4 bedrooms, 2 on the first floor & 2 on the second floor & a spacious lounge. It was very clean & tidy & we were greeted as we arrived. The owner is very helpful. We had plenty of swim towels.The villa has everything you need to cook for a large family. Lots of plates, glasses etc. It has a lovely BBQ outside. The villa is decorated very tastefully & to a high standard. Plenty of outside seating all new. The pool is super, if you go out of season it is best to pay the extra for the heating, it was worth every penny. It also has a games room in the basement with darts, table tennis & a pool table.

Outside the sunbeds are very comfy & it has the sun all day. It is in a lovely area & you also have use of the Oasis parque indoor & outdoor pools. We loved the villa so much we did not use these. It is best if you have use of a car but Taxi's are always available. A couple of bars/ restaurants within walking distance. Also nearby are 2 huge hypermarkets very handy. It is between Alvor & Portimao with Praia da Rocha worth a visit. Would highly recommend this villa. It also has a great TV package & a DVD player ideal for children & husbands !.

The pool was kept very clean & the garden is lovely too.

A beautiful villa with lots of space

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience of a villa holiday so we didn't quite know what to expect, but we were not disappointed. We had early morning flights and arrived at the villa earlier than expected. Francisca was there with her team and were more than happy for us to be there whilst they continued to clean and get the villa ready for our stay. We were made to feel very welcome. The villa itself is very clean and well presented. It is larger than we expected and split over three floors. The games room downstairs was an added bonus as was the xbox 360 in the kids bedroom! The outside area was a great space too. The pool was well maintained as a pool cleaner did visit during our stay. The chlorine seemed quite strong though, and our kids did have to wear goggles most of the time. The patio and BBQ area is where we spent most evenings and was such a lovely place to relax. There was only 6 chairs and there was 8 of us so was a little annoying. There is plenty of space to sunbath by the pool in the well maintained garden. The garden has sun all day and the pool starts to get shady late afternoon. The kitchen is more than equipped with everything you need including a dishwasher. There is normally a washing machine too but this was taken away on our second day to be repaired and never returned (we didn't plan to do our washing on holiday anyway)! There are plenty of towels and extra bedding if needed too. Our sheets and towels were also changed in the middle of our 2 week stay.

There were 8 people in our party - 4 adults and 4 children. There is so much to keep the kids entertained in this villa we didn't use any of the facilities Oasis Parque had to offer. Oasis Parque itself is made up of mostly villas and apartments. There is a large leisure complex in the centre with swimming pools, tennis courts, a cafe and a reception area where you can book day trips. You can order takeaway from the cafe but have to give 24 hours notice. The leisure facilities are free to use when you stay here.

We used a 8 seater taxi to take us out and about. We would hire a car next time. It costs around 13 euros to get to Praia de Rocher and slightly more to get to Alvor. Alvor was our favourite place to visit. It's a traditional Portuguese fishing village and comes alive in the evenings with its restaurants and bars. The beach here is beautiful too.

The nearest supermarket is a 20 minute walk away from the villa.

We had a fabulous stay

muito obrigado to its owner David Norris

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive and detailed review of our villa. Francisca and her team do a great job keeping the villa immaculate and i will pass this on to her also :) I am over at the villa tomorrow and Francisca has mentioned the washing machine can jot be repaired, so we are buying a new one on Monday and i believe Francisca team assisted with laundry during your stay.....I will also purchase two additional outdoor dining chairs so thanks for the feedback on that :) We always look forward to "good" guests returning and look forward to hearing from you again - Obrigado !

stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

We booked this Villa for our first family trip to the Algarve where we combined family activities with the Wife's skydiving at the drop zone 5only mins down the road. The Villa itself was perfect for our family of six, the swimming pool, Table tennis, and Pool table gave the kids plenty to do when we was back at the villa (eldest child even started beating me at Pool :-/ ) having spent the days on Alvors breath taking beaches in the winter sun. David and his team in Portugal made us feel very welcome with complimentary wine, tea and fresh produce. The villa is very luxurious well equipped, we never found ourselves without anything we needed.

We also recommend getting on a boat trip, in winter they do not run many group ones so we charted a boat from Alvor boat trips for 150 Euros which was very good, they took us over to Lagos where they took us in to the caves and grottos which were stunning the guide Luis provided us with lots of history on the Algarve coast too.

We had such a great time here we already want to book again for this Christmas.

Nearest Airport
45 Kilometres

5 Kilometres
Alvor and Praia Da Rocha and Vau
Car: recommended


A delightful community of privately owned villas on the outskirts of Portimao and just a 5 minute drive from Alvor/Rocha, where there are sandy beaches, coves and restaurants.


40 minutes from Faro airport.


Oasis Parque is a highly desirable development with a delightful setting. Just five minutes from the cosmopolitan town of Portimao and the new marina, it is also close to the fishing village of Alvor, which provides excellent restaurants in the evening. Praia da Rocha is also 5 minutes away and Albufeira is approx 20 minutes away

Further Details:

Beaches & towns - Oasis Parque is just 7 minutes (5km) from the safe, sandy beaches at Alvor, Vau and Praia da Rocha. The Western Algarve hosts spectacular scenery with a magnificent coastline featuring honey coloured cliffs, caves and endless breathtaking sandy beaches washed by the glistening Atlantic Ocean. The historic towns of Loule, Lagos and Silves (with a 12th century castle) are all a short drive away.

Local amenities: Shopping & restaurants – There are two large supermarkets within walking distance, Intermarche and Jumbo at Portimão Retail Park, Aqua Portimão. Aqua Portimão, which cost 106 million euros to build, is now open with 117 stores, covering 35,500 square metres and is the fourth largest shopping mall in Portimão after the Retail Park, the Retail Centre and the Continente Shopping Centre for clothing, sportswear and general items

Portimao is good for shopping, restaurants and banking together with all the attractions of the harbour and its 16th century wall. No holiday is complete without a visit to the sardine restaurants on the harbour side in Portimao.

Praia da Rocha has some superb restaurants both along the walkway and at the Marina.

Alvor is excellent for restaurants and is a traditional small fishing village which has not lost its character. There are exquisite fish restaurants as well as cosmopolitan restaurants and you can either eat at the waterfront or in the village itself.

Also nearby is Lagos, where there is a new marina you can find numerous restaurants or take a stroll around the old town, again with many good restaurants and a good shopping location.

Local amenities: Things to do - For family fun visit an Aqua park, swim with dolphins at the Zoo Marine or experience a safari in the mountains.
