About Doug Adams

I am 50 years old, work as an Oracle consultant, and have a 13 year old daughter.

Doug Adams purchased this villa in 2014

Why Doug Adams chose Carvoeiro area

I loved the feel of Carvoeiro as soon as I saw it. I was also blown away by the beautiful beaches and the friendliness of the locals.

What makes this villa unique

It was the outdoor space! There are so many seated outdoor areas dotted around the villa where you are able to relax and enjoy the views. We have now updated the roof terrace so you can enjoy the views whilst reclining on one of the sun loungers.

Great Villa, home from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a week in Eira Dos Moinhos and loved it. Great villa, well appointed and felt like a home from home. The little touches we had - the welcome pack, coffee machine, local info all made it very welcoming. We had the pool heated and it was the best heated pool in a villa we have had. The lighting in the pool was great and the roof terrace and views spectacular.

Prachtig vrij gelegen villa met heerlijk (verwarmd) zwembad

  • 4 of 5

Villa met genoeg ruimte en privacy en op het dak uitzicht over de omgeving. Heerlijke plekjes om te zitten (beschut en onbeschut). Het verwarmde zwembad incl. verlichting is het pareltje van het huis. Van binnen is het huis prima, niet modern, maar voorzien van alle gemakken.

Family stay at Carvoeiro

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Portugal, and we had a really enjoyable 10 day stay in Carvoeiro. The villa is in a quiet area and is about 20 minutes walk from Carveoiro town, which is a lovely small town with loads of bars & restaurants, a picturesque beach. The pool was heated, so we spent loads of time there. There were 7 in our party (4 adults and 3 kids), and the villa was a perfect size for us. We found Doug (owner) a pleasure to deal with, and when we had a problem with the heater on the pool, Cliff (the property manager) got it sorted with the minimum of fuss.

We hope to be back again soon

Lovely villa with great views!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this villa. The views are fantastic from the roof terrace and there are so many places to sit and enjoy the sunshine/shade outside. The pool is great and a good size - we used it a lot and were pleased to have paid the extra for the heating at this time of year. The inside of the villa is nice but we did not actually spend that much time indoors as the weather was so good and we were often in the pool in the evening. The villa is in a good position, with not far to travel to the shop and for some excellent places/beaches to visit nearby. Thank you.

Superb villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa was superb and as described. The kitchen was fully equipped and the air con great. As for outside the pool was superb and so quiet. Lots of different places to sit in and out of the sun. Also the internet was fast which matters to kids these days!!

It was our second visit to carvoeiro and the choice of restaurants is endless.

Great Villa and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Villa. Very spacious and lots of areas outside to eat, i think i counted at least 4 or five different places you can eat outside. Very easy to book and great instructions from Doug on how to get there. Location is great, but I would say a car was essential. Walk to main strip is probably 30 mins (estimated) and could be a bit fraught due to the lack of pavements, depending on what kind of party you are (family, young adult etc)

We travelled a bit, using the villa as a base, but to be honest, the kids loved the pool so much, we probably spent more time at the villa than we expected. No bad thing, as the villa has everything you need, and if you have smaller kids, there are gates to prevent any small kids getting to the pool un supervised.

Had a couple of small issues, but these were quickly solved by the team in Portugal and Doug himself. The response time for me is whats important, as any delay in fixing anything can spoil your holiday, and this was the best I have experienced.

great wifi, great telly with the five terrestrial channels on it. I loved the fact i could have a decent coffee every day too ;-)

Didn't have a bad meal when we ate on the local strip and the kids had a great time. I would recommend this for families with children, or a group needing a space and using it as a base.

No complaints, and hope to visit again. Would recommend to my friends and family,
