About Dirk von Wahl
We're from Germany with 2 teenaged kids and have lived in China for the last 21 years.
Dirk von Wahl purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Dirk von Wahl chose Goldra
After 15 consecutive years of summer holidays in the lovely Central Algarve we decided that it is time to have a more permanent location in Portugal that will also allow usage as a long-term home upon retirement.
What makes this Villa unique
Living in Shanghai with 24 million other people means that there is never silence or privacy. So our primary goal was to find a location that is private yet has easy and quick access to restaurants, beaches, shops and other leisure and sightseeing facilities.

Great villa Great location
We have been renting villas in the Santa Barbara De Nexe/Loule area for 22 years and without doubt this is the best villa we have stayed in on every level. The facilities are first class and much better than the usual rental standard we have had in the past - the quality of furnishings inside and out, the kitchen and facilities and all the available amenities are all first class,
We are not beach people so the extensive gardens and fabulous pool are all we needed, but the villa location means that you are in easy reach of the beaches in Faro, Vale Do Lobo and so on should you need them. I must warn you the views here are magnificent. if anything the photos on the website do not do the property full justice, so the beaches lost out for us,
All the web site listings and property descriptions are spot on and the property was clean and very well maintained. Vic who looks after the property for the owners is first class, really helpful and on hand in our first few days.
There are some fantastic restaurants in this area, you must try La Piazza in the centre of Santa Barbara De Nexe run by Angelo and his family, we have been eating here since they bought it in 2001 and way before that with previous owners. Also try the local run restaurants in Loule - Leonel and O Manels. whilst nearer to the villa you have Mac Jetes, Malice and the fabulous Flor De Ameixa on the road to Estoi. Value for money is just superb.
All our dealings with the owners Regina and Dirk has been easy, they have been fantastic from the first contact..
Finally as you might guess I would recommend the villa highly, you will have a great time, so much so we have just booked it for the same time next year. I guess say no more.
We booked this villa for the second year running and once again it was a pleasurable stay, we hope to return. It is located on a peaceful and quiet area yet close to everything you need, a hidden paradise. House favorites include the pool area, barbecue/dinning table and upstairs terrace and its magnificent views. All in all, perfect for relaxing in comfort.
👍👌 Es hat uns an nicht gefehlt. Danke
Sehr gute Ausstattung und gute Betreuung vor Ort. Wir hatten super Wochen😀
Danke liebe Barbara! Dirk und ich sind sehr froh, dass ihr es schön hattet. Bis zum nächsten Mal im Mai;)
Viele Grüße, Regina
Nous sommes venus en vacances dans cet endroit de rêves perché en haut d'une colline l'été dernier a 2 couples et 6 enfants... nous avons étés très bien reçus par la personne qui gère la maison sur place; Ce Monsieur vient tout les 2 jours pour l'entretien de la piscine.
La maison est très spacieuse et elle a beaucoup de charme... l'intérieur était très propre et très bien équipé; La chambre de l'étage possède sa salle de bains privative... L'extérieur est juste magique... La végétation est superbe, la piscine au sel est fantastique et la vue est juste a couper le souffle!!! plusieurs terrasses avec salon de jardin et transats sont a votre disposition, barbecue... Petite surprise... une terrasse perchée sur la maison domine tout loulé... le soir c'est du pur bonheur. Propriétaires a l'écoute et très gentils malgré le décalage horaire...
Voiture conseillé pour les visites et excursions... sinon toutes les commodités sont très accessibles en voiture... supermarché continente a 5 min.
Nous gardons tous un souvenirs merveilleux de cette maison... A bientôt
