About Dirk von Wahl
We're from Germany with 2 teenaged kids and have lived in China for the last 21 years.
Dirk von Wahl purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Dirk von Wahl chose Goldra de Cima
After 15 consecutive years of summer holidays in the lovely Central Algarve we decided that it is time to have a more permanent location in Portugal that will also allow usage as a long-term home upon retirement.
What makes this Villa unique
Living in Shanghai with 24 million other people means that there is never silence or privacy. So our primary goal was to find a location that is private yet has easy and quick access to restaurants, beaches, shops and other leisure and sightseeing facilities.

Great villa Great location
We have been renting villas in the Santa Barbara De Nexe/Loule area for 22 years and without doubt this is the best villa we have stayed in on every level. The facilities are first class and much better than the usual rental standard we have had in the past - the quality of furnishings inside and out, the kitchen and facilities and all the available amenities are all first class,
We are not beach people so the extensive gardens and fabulous pool are all we needed, but the villa location means that you are in easy reach of the beaches in Faro, Vale Do Lobo and so on should you need them. I must warn you the views here are magnificent. if anything the photos on the website do not do the property full justice, so the beaches lost out for us,
All the web site listings and property descriptions are spot on and the property was clean and very well maintained. Vic who looks after the property for the owners is first class, really helpful and on hand in our first few days.
There are some fantastic restaurants in this area, you must try La Piazza in the centre of Santa Barbara De Nexe run by Angelo and his family, we have been eating here since they bought it in 2001 and way before that with previous owners. Also try the local run restaurants in Loule - Leonel and O Manels. whilst nearer to the villa you have Mac Jetes, Malice and the fabulous Flor De Ameixa on the road to Estoi. Value for money is just superb.
All our dealings with the owners Regina and Dirk has been easy, they have been fantastic from the first contact..
Finally as you might guess I would recommend the villa highly, you will have a great time, so much so we have just booked it for the same time next year. I guess say no more.
We booked this villa for the second year running and once again it was a pleasurable stay, we hope to return. It is located on a peaceful and quiet area yet close to everything you need, a hidden paradise. House favorites include the pool area, barbecue/dinning table and upstairs terrace and its magnificent views. All in all, perfect for relaxing in comfort.
Fast nur Pluspunkte
Es ist ein schönes Haus mit Charakter, recht komfortabel und gut ausgestattet. Die großzügigen Außenanlagen und der Pool machen den Aufenthalt angenehm. Es liegt ruhig und fern der Touristenströme. Nicht jedermanns oder -frau Sache sind die letzten Teile der Zuwegung, Begegnungsverkehr - zum Glück bei unserem Aufenthalt selten - kann zum Problem werden. Zeitlich verlegt werden müssten die lautstarken Arbeitsprozesse der Solaranlage, die alle paar Tage den Schlaf stören. (Eine Kommunikation mit der Agentur hat eigentlich nicht stattgefunden)
Sehr geehrter Herr Rauschka Rücker,
vielen Dank für die nette Beurteilung und wir sind froh, dass Sie einen guten Aufenthalt bei uns in der Villa hatten.
Bezüglich der Solaranlage haben wir mit Vic gesprochen und werden einen größeren Druckbehälter installieren.
Für jegliche Unannehmlichkeiten diesbezüglich, möchten wir uns bei ihnen entschuldigen.
Herzlichst, Regina und Dirk
Belle maison, très bien équipée, très bien entretenue, spacieuse. La sieste sous les palmiers au bord de la piscine y est très agréable. Vic est au top et aux petits soins avec les hôtes.
Nous recommandons vivement cette jolie maison.
Merçi bien Julie.
We are very glad that you and your family enjoyed the stay in our villa!
