Fabulous villa, reality much better than photos (which were amazing). 2 couples who had a fab time. Facilities excellent from the very spacious en-suite bedrooms to the large kitchen with every mod con including American fridge. Would recommend pool heating, it was just like a hot bath; heaven. would stay again in a heartbeat.

We are just back from a most wonderful holiday in Vilamoura staying at Villa Nuala. From my first enquiry Nuala herself was so helpful and friendly, everything was covered in detailed emails. It was lovely to meet her at the villa.
The villa itself is even better than the photos. When we walked into the beautiful marble hall the villa was in darkness. Then we found the automatic shutter switch and the effect as they lifted to reveal the lounge, dining room and view to the pool was stunning! The bedrooms and en suites are equally luxurious and spacious. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with helpful extras like washing up liquid, bin bags, cling film and napkins.
We just loved the pool area and gardens - so peaceful and relaxing. Even although the weather was hot, we had the pool heated and it was a pleasure to use from early morning. Everything inside and out is immaculately clean and well maintained.
We did not have a car but walked down to the Marina each evening for dinner and took a taxi back up the hill. The taxi fare was never more than 5 euros. We used the little train from the Marina to go to the Old Village. It is lovely to wander round and have lunch.
Even without a car we easily managed shopping at Pingo supermarket. Wine and water are heavy so we went in twos to carry the bags!
Vilamoura is a great place to holiday and staying at Villa Nuala makes it extra special. We will be back!

Being able to satisfy the needs of older people such as myself and my better half as well as fitting directly into the needs of Chilren in their 20s and their partners is usuall a difficult task. Villa Nuala met the bill completely and perfectly.
The peace and tranquility of the setting backing on to the fairway of a par 4 and the easy access to both Vilamoura and Quarteira were only the start. The villa itself allowed for both formal and informal evenings catered and self catered. To relax by the heated pool in late September was a joy, in the day the pool was used to cool down and on an occasional evening to warm up.
The villa is adorable and bedecked superbly.
Many thanks for being the host of one of the most memorable holidays that our family has had. Would I recommend, suffice it to dsay that Villa Nual will be revisited and has inspired us to look at the potential of having our own place somewhere not to far away.
Many thanks

“Wonderful Villa in a Wonderful Place”

Had a lovely holiday with my elderly parents who also loved it. Villa Nuala is the nicest villa we have stayed in, in a really nice residential area. The heated pool was so nice to cool off in as it was so hot. We felt very safe with the security shutters and they helped keep the rooms cool. The walk to the marina took us about 20 minutes (30 with my elderly parents) but we enjoyed the exercise. Taxis are plenty and cost us about 5 euros to get back as it is uphill. The management company were excellent we had towels and bedding changed and Judite was always available to help if needed. Nuala arranged the taxi transfers for us and everything went like clockwork. Nuala also supplied all the information we needed and kept in touch with us which was very reassuring. This was our first vist to Villamoura and it definately wont be our last. To top it all off the weather was brilliant. I would definately recommend this villa to anyone who wants to stay in a 5 star villa in a lovely area of the Algarve.

Villa Nuala is a gem. It is an beautiful, authentic villa yet has all the mod cons necessary for a relaxing, low-maintenance holiday for a family of 4, in our case. It is very spacious - we had some friends join us for a few days and the villa easily accomodates 6. The villa feels very secure and has automatic shutters for all windows. The pool is a really generous size with a decent deep end and the terrace has a lovely, peaceful outlook over the pretty garden and Pinhal Golf Course. The road is a quiet residential road with other well-maintained villas on it. We hired a car which we would recommend for grocery shops (we found Pingo Doce and Spar better than Jaffers) and trips to golf, water parks etc. Villamoura Tennis Academy 5 minutes drive away is well worth a visit if you are into tennis. The walk into the Marina takes a good 15 minutes when walking with children - taxis in Vilamoura seemed non-existent especially at night when the queue at the taxi rank was huge (maybe thats just August!).
The owner, Nuala, gave us lots of useful local information prior to our visit and the agent was there to greet us on arrival.
We don't often return to the same place on holiday but we would love to come back to Villa Nuala!

Our stay at Villa Nuala in Vilamoura was wonderful experience with the Villa, Pool and Gardens very well maintained, and with Nuala's pre holiday information / communication it gave us a good insight to what was in store for our first visit to Portugal.
We bit the bullet and hired a car as we wanted to venture further afield, but if you intend staying local, I would not bother.
Loads of eating options, in or out, Supermarkets ( Pingo Doce, Spar, Jaspers etc, just to name a few ) and for the out option the list is just as extensive.
It is worth noting that if you have travellers cheques, Visa T C's are more problematic in this area, unsure as to the why, but American Express seemed to be the preferred option.
If you get the chance in a busy schedule, Parasailing, Family Golf Park, and the Waterparcs worth the effort, with the later, dedicated Buses operate to these, and of course, the casual stroll of an evening to take in the atmosphere of the Marina.
Finally, if you do go for the Hire Car, be aware of the pedestrian crossings which there are many and some crossing markings coming up to the end of their sell by date, but with pedestrians having the Right of Way ( of course ) it is best to have your wits about you.
I do hope this brief insight has helped.
