Casa Donald is situated about 20 minutes from Faro airport. This attractive and secluded rural villa is set in 2 acres of private gardens in which figs, olives, Almonds and lemons are growing. More information at www.algarvevilla.xyz .The villa has been sympathetically converted but retains many original features. The pool is set in a private terrace to the house and there is a top sun terrace which has uninterrupted views to the sea and BBQ. The whole villa is double glazed to help keep it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. With blackout shutters to all windows. The Villa is equipped as a home from home, with everything you need to make you stay as comfortable as possible.
We love Portugal and the people in this country. What attracted us to our villa was the privacy and the fantastic views. We have had many wonderful evenings chatting and enjoying the expansive views out to the sea. There is such a relaxed feel to the villa it is an ideal place to unwind. also perfect for sun worshippers due to the Sun Terrace which enjoys the full shine of the sun from Dawn til sunset.
Nicola Cooper purchased this villa in 2000
We have owned this villa since 2000. It is ideal for anyone wanting privacy and suitable as a family home and very comfortable. It goes without saying that we love Portugal and especially the Loule area where our home is. The swimming pool is well maintained and in pristine condition and can be heated if required. We have land around the house some of which is garden and the rest is wild and full of trees, shrubs and flowers. There are other houses nearby but we are not overlooked which gives us privacy.
Secluded. Quiet. Birds singing. Walking cross country.
No tourists. Local hospitality at Portuguese prices. Relaxing by the pool. Privacy. Sun. Easy to get to. Relaxing. Well Equipped. Home from home. And did I mention Quiet. Secluded, and Bird Song. Fresh Clean Air. Master bedroom with King Size Bed

We would like to thank you for our lovely stay at your Villa last week we had a great week the weather was mostly good and the Villa was really comfortable and gave us a really good base. The pool was really warm and used every day the sun was out, the views were fantastic. Lorraine was also very helpful and welcoming.
Your property is lovely, well maintained and has such stunning views.
We got a lot of bird watching in, Waxbill and Bonelli's Eagle spotted.
Thanks again Nicola, I would definitely return to your property.
Excellent villa flexible accommodation but beautifully private.
A lot of Villa for the money, next time we will book the Aircon it is really needed after being on the sun terrace for a good Sunbath even in June.
Loved the Location, Shame we had to leave. Please can we buy your villa ?
Nice Village, very welcoming, easy place to get to, and no n
The villa was well equipped and spacious, It is remote but we were aware of that, the village itself is extremely small, with only one decent bar/restaurant within easy walking distance (cooper's bar) which served excellent food and friendly staff, the nearest convenience store was a good 30 minute walk away, so you may as well drive into town where you have supermarkets. The directions to the villa was not the easiest to follow, we did get lost, but when rang Natalie (management team) she was very helpful, as was paul who cleaned the pool on a regular basis, happy to give us directions etc when asked how to get anywhere,
Only really a couple of negatives were,: No welcome pack. which would have been helpful as the villa is remote, I have stayed in several villas over the years and always received a small welcome pack with essentials, would only cost a few euros for tea sachets/coffee/milk and water.
we were there 10 days, we did not have a villa clean or towels changed, but there was only 3 of us so we could utilise the towels in the spare bedroom, I did not particulary want to do washing whilst on holiday.
Plus it would have been nice to have some pool lights
Overall a relaxing holiday with only little niggly things

Great base for exploring what the Algarve has to offer. Casa Donald has all the amenities you need and is well equipped for a comfortable stay. The views are outstanding as were some of the glorious sunsets. 10/15 minutes to some wonderful beaches. Vilamoura has some wonderful restaurants. Close enough to something for everyone, young and old alike. The pool was a great place to spend the days when we stayed in. Paul and Natalie were both very helpful. Looking forward to our return
This was our second stay at Casa Donald, you couldn't ask for a better holiday, the views from the balcony and sun terrace are spectacular, the well kept gardens with their beautiful flowers and fruit trees are visited regularly by azure Magpies and too many butterfly species to mention, the villa itself is homely, we'll equipped and very comfortable and is only a short walk from a couple of quaint local restaurants, the walk is a pleasant one, through groves of olive and fig trees, and the staff at these restaurants are friendly and welcoming, The villa manager Paul is very friendly and keen to help and gave us some great, local knowledge tips on where to eat and visit, all in all a great holiday, we will be booking again soon!
Great location (short easy drives to Faro old town and the many beautiful beaches). Beautiful views, great pool. The local village is charming and we enjoyed both Coopers bar for a few evening drinks and the family run Portuguese restaurant (excellent food). The villa itself is spacious and the owner was professional and helpful in all communications. In summary, it is a great base from which to experience the best of the Algarve.
Casa Donald was just as we hoped. Plenty of room for 5 adults in a peaceful location with beautiful views. Unfortunately we picked the wrong week weather-wise but the pool, and a nearby golf course, were enjoyed by the men. A couple of evenings were spent at Coopers, great to be able to walk there and it was a very welcoming bar with good food.
Our recent stay at Casa Donald was perfect beautiful villa with everything you need (like home from home). Six of us from our family stayed for a week very spacious you didn't feel like you where under each other's feet , recommended bars,cafes and restaurants are very good and friendly people.Would recommend Riley's cafe really friendly and gave us ideas and directions of places to visit , will defiantly return owners and representatives are really efficient
