About Catriona Dickson
My family and I spent four years holidays in Casa Feliz. We loved it and never contemplated going anywhere else. Its a great place to base yourself to see the rest of the Portugal and nearby Spain, but also super if you just want to chill and enjoy the peace and quiet. When the owners told us they wanted to sell the villa we were devastated! What would we do for our holidays? My daughter who was 13 at the time loves the pool and the table tennis. Mad as it may seem the only thing we could do was to buy it. My parents usually spent a couple of month there at the beginning and end of the year to get away from our cold and damp Scottish winters.
Catriona Dickson purchased this villa in 2008
Why Catriona Dickson chose Almancil
We love the bright airy feel of the villa. We loved the pool and the private location. It's on the edge of a village but still within walking distance of a couple of good restaurants -Malveros is run by Lionel with his wife doing the cooking. Here you will always receive a warm welcome. A new cafe has also opened, good food and wine and very cheap. There is a nearby supermarket (Appolonia) which we think is brilliant. There is also an Aldi next door to Appolonia.
What makes this villa unique
There are loads of places to visit. Loule, Almacil and Villamoura are only 10mins away. Loule has a recently renovated indoor market, and its nice to wander through the old town. Villamoura has a large marina where you can sit in the cafes and watch the world go by.
