Spacious 8 bed private villa (sleeps up to 16 in beds, 22 with the use of folding/sofa beds etc) The villa is situated in a peaceful, gated location with heated pool. (There is a surcharge if you require the pool heating. Not necessary in the summer months)
It has its very own Garage Bar. Complete with tv, iPod dock etc...
It is just minutes walk away from the nearest bars, restaurants & in-expensive supermarket. Really good value food & probably more important wine/beer etc! It is approximately 10/15€ in a taxi to Albufeira’s famous Old Town, Strip & Marina.
A lively nightlife, café culture and family orientated attractions, make the Algarve the perfect destination, what ever you're after. There are also many water sports to try including sailing, fishing, windsurfing, surfing, jet skiing and water skiing. There truly is something for everyone... together with several beautiful beaches within easy reach. It really is the the perfect place to enjoy your holiday. One of our recommendations if you fancy a chill out day is Gale Beach, which is in walking distance of the villa or only a few euros in a taxi.
We also have FREE WIFI, plus a new 48 inch curved screen 3D TV entertainment system. With every TV and Music Chanel you can think of, plus all the latest movies, including new releases.
We are in the process of ordering a new pool table...
We have a Private Bar, with 55 inch TV. Great for sports events, or as a warm up before hitting the town. There are also ipod docks and even a disco ball! Great for pre-drinks to get the night started. Also, if you have children, you can have a drink in the bar, with the knowledge they are safely tucked up in their beds.

*Local area (within a 20 minutes walk of the villa)*
If you turn left out of the villa, it's a 2 minute stroll to the nearest bars, restaurant and well stocked inexpensive supermarket. Here you can stock up on local wine for less than 2 Euros a bottle and food for the BBQ.
Turn right at the bottom of the lane towards Albuferia and, within a five to ten minute gentle walk, you will find Oliveras Resturant which we can highly recommend.
If you take the first right before you get to Oliveras, it's approx. a ten minute walk to Jompra and Angies bars. A further few minutes to the top of the road, brings you to Amigos (best tapas in town) and Por Do Sol that has live music, Tuesdays and Saturdays. A little further on the left, you will find Amigos tapas restaurant, which is a must visit place and our favorite. (Get a taxi if you don't fancy a walk up the hill 😉)
If you fancy Indian food we can recommend Mr Singhs. Ask our property manager for directions)
Take a right at the top of the road from Angies bar and in five minutes you'll find Quinta da Gale or turn left and again and in five minutes you will find Scooby's family bar. (No stag parties though, I’m afraid) Scooby's has a pool and is great for watching football matches and serves up large portions of good food. If you spend a decent amount there, you can be picked up or taken home free of charge.
The nearest beach is a 20 minute walk away
*Within a short drive or taxi ride (less than ten minutes)*
Marina – approx five minutes taxi ride, roughly 7€
Old Town – approx ten minutes taxi ride, roughly 10/15€
New Town/Strip approx 15 minutes taxi ride, roughly 15/20€
The Salgados golf course is a few minutes drive away
Alternatively there is a bus stop two minutes away from the villa
Note: local taxi numbers and local car hire details are available in the welcome file.
Villa dos Sonhos is a 30 - 40 minute drive from Faro International airport.
Transfers can be arranged through our management company or alternatively google to source your own.
It is not essential to have a car, as there is a bus stop within a short walking distance and taxis are cheap and reliable .
If you do wish to hire a car we recommend searching through skyscanner or travel supermarket. It is much cheaper to pick up and drop of at the airport, than hiring a car once at the Villa. We have found that some local firms charge as much per day, as it costs to hire a car for a week from the airport. Don't worry if you don't know the way from the airport, it's easy and we will be happy to give you directions.
Many people think you need to go to the Canary Islands for winter sun, but temperatures are mild in the winter months and even in January, the coldest month of the year, Faro has an average maximum temperature of 16 degrees.
We have just been for New Year and day time temperature's averaged around 20 degrees!
In the summer, temperatures are generally hot, with a mean maximum temperature of 30/35c at Faro during July.
