Villa Nuala is a beautiful villa with everything you need for a chilled holiday, and Nuala the owner could not have been more helful. The villa is spacious and cool and the pool is perfect. The husband was also v impressed with the BBQ. On the occasions we dragged ourselves from the pool/BBQ, everything we wanted was within a 20 min stroll. The marina is definitely worth several visits, with so many restaurants and bars you'll be spoiled for choice. There's a couple of supermarkets nearby, although we had a car so went to Lidl where the fish and meat selection was surprisingly large and reasonable priced.

I'll be returning to Vilamoura in the future, the scenery, people, food and sun made it a wonderful week away.

“Superb!”

We stayed in Villa Nuala for a one week stay in June 2016 and cannot recommend this villa highly enough. From initial booking back in January to the actual holiday, Nuala responded to our emails efficiently and everything went according to plan - she was a pleasure to deal with. We travelled with two small children and Grandparents in tow.

The Villa itself is fully equipped and in pristine condition – in fact some of the rooms have been refurbished and so are even nicer than the photographs. There are new tiles around the pool area and fabulous comfy seating just outside the patio doors – where we relaxed with a glass of vino most nights looking out at the lovely lit-up pool.

The villa is situated about a 20 minute walk from the marina, however taxis to/from the Marina only cost max €5 so they are very inexpensive if you wish to walk down and taxi back in the evening/night. There are no shops in close proximity – the nearest one is about 10-15mins walk away, which includes walking along a pathless road – but that was the only negative point on the week long holiday. You have to make sure you have everything in because there is no ‘nipping to the shops’! But this just meant that we had to be prepared. We did our big shopping in Lidl (taxi there and back) and for other smaller provisions, we just carried them back from the Marina – we had two buggies with us that came in handy!

Nuala had sent us a very detailed email which included restaurant recommendations – we ate in Chicos one night, which is just down the road from the villa and highly recommended. We also dined out at The Thai Beach Club one night while the grandparents babysat which was excellent! Other evenings we barbequed back at the villa. All the facilities are there and it was lovely to dine al fresco.

We had the pleasure of meeting Nuala, as she was staying in Vilamoura during our visit. She even came up on our last night to have a glass of bubbly and a chat – a lovely woman. Thanks Nuala for a fabulous welcome and we will be back next year for a longer stay.

We stayed at Villa Nuala earlier this month and we cannot speak highly enough of our experience.

It was our first time holidaying in a villa and we were wary of booking directly with an owner rather than via an agent. However, Nuala quickly reassured us and was constantly in communication on email and available over the phone.

The villa itself is beautiful and the pictures do not do it justice as it is much bigger than it looks. Every room is well decorated, clean and more than spacious.

The location is perfect as it is within walking distance of the marina and plenty of bars and restaurants. Nuala gave us some recommendations of places to eat and in particular Don Alfonso was brilliant.

If you are looking for a lovely, homely villa in a great location then look no further!

We stayed in Villa Nuala at the beginning of October to celebrate our son's 30th birthday with the family and all had a wonderful time. The facilities were excellent, the pool and garden area were kept in pristine condition. The villa is much nicer than the photos show as some rooms have been refurbished and are really lovely. Nuala was fantastic to deal with very informative and quick replies to all emails. We would recommend this villa strongly and hope to return in the near future.
