Dominic Young purchased this Villa in 2014

Comfy , relaxing, pretty
This little house was perfect for us, it isn’t a palace, but it was cosy and warm thanks to the log burning stoves in kitchen and lounge and the warm a/c in the bedrooms. The beds were a bit low but very comfy, the showers hot and a good pressure. I loved the garden it was so interesting and so fragrant , the large cactus flower which meets you at the door was amazing . If we are visiting this area again we would definitely stay here , the only negatives are the dirt track leading to the property which was a bit of a challenge for our rental fiat panda 😆� and due to this it would f been nice if there had been a welcome pack with just some bread, ham, milk and water , as we had to go out as soon as we arrived . But like I say we would definitely stay again thank you .
Loved everything about this villa. It is a spacious bungalow on a large plot of landscaped gardens and provides a lovely pool and sunbathing area. The villa itself is well equipped and provides everything a self caterer requires. We met both Richard and Teressa who manage the property during our short stay and they were both very helpful. We would stay again without hesitation.
Really enjoyed this week long stay a Casa Dominic in its quiet and peaceful country setting without feeling remote. A car I would suggest is essential as Moncarapacho with its local supermarket is roughly 10 minutes away and quite well stocked. The road leading to the villa after the tarmac is for a short way a little rocky but easy enough to negotiate might be worth if you hire a car getting the additional body insurance cover to avoid accidental stone chips not expensive we only paid 24 euro extra. That apart I couldn't fault what is a natural unspoiled little oasis, great locality where if you want to go to nearby beaches or excellent restaurants in Santa Luzia or Tavira the nearby N125 makes access quick and easy. Richard and Terrasa the property managers assigned to the villa are a great source of local knowledge should you require it and extremely helpful they are lovely people totally sensitive to you holiday privacy. Casa Dominic has much to recommend it.
Lovely villa with pool in rural Portugal
The villa is very well-equipped and has everything you need to cater at home. It was extremely clean and tidy and the gardens were looked after. We liked the off-beat setting; quiet and neighbours just far enough away. Lots to do in the area. Fuseta and Barril beaches are great days out. Perhaps a parasol for use on the beach would be a good idea as rentals are quite pricey for a family. Tavira was a lovely town and the nearby 22 makes access to other towns very easy. We visited Silves which was great for castle and museum fix; try the Hidden Moorish Cafe for tapas and drinks with a stunning view. A really good villa and location for a relaxing holiday and variety of days out.
Our stay at Casa Dominico was wonderful. The villa has everything that we needed during our stay and we were met with a small welcome pack (including a bottle of wine!) which was a nice surprise. The location is rural and as an earlier review mentioned, the last part of the road is unpaved. We had a VW polo as a rental car and it was not a problem at all. The view from the roof terrace is beautiful - a great place to enjoy a morning coffee. If you are looking for an 'away from it all' kind of place, i would definitely recommend Casa Dominico
Peace and quiet location in a beautiful Villa
The Villa is very lovely and being a gardener I loved the surroundings. So many beautiful plants, olive, pomegranate and almond trees with just the cicada song breaking through complete silence. We watched the sun set and rise on the roof terrace and took binoculars for birds. The pool was great and the pool guy was a very nice and freindly. The temp was around 30 all week so it was pretty hot so the pool was a real blessing. I couldn't get the internet to work for me all week and ran out of data in the first 24hrs but after a couple of days I didn't really care. There was a full mobile coverage anyway in case. We ate 'at home' every day and had a few BBqs, popping into Moncarapacho daily (mainly for Pastel de nata...nom nom). Facilities were all good inside and out. The flowers were so colorful against the blue blue sky I would love it see it earlier in the season with even more flowers. So maybe next time! Thank you guys it was brilliant.
