There are three ensuite bedrooms and an additional interconnecting bedroom with a sofa bed which can also be used as a second sitting room as there is Lazer TV which has international channels and Wi-Fi. The villa is fully fenced and the interior is built over one level with some internal steps. Outside, in addition to the pool area, there is a lovely roof terrace.

Stays here include complimentary use of the Dunas Douradas communal pool and tennis courts.

Outside, there is a beautiful sunny terrace, with parasols and a south facing heatable pool (8 x 4m). The depth of the pool is from 1 metre at the shallow end to 2 metres at the deep end with integrated steps for easy access. A pool fence can be installed here for extra security and pool heating can be arranged - charges apply. There is a great outside dining area, with gas BBQ, which is shaded and surrounded by plants and shrubbery helping you to keep cool in the summer. There are two roof terraces at Villa Gela-mar, perfect for sundowners and grabbing those last rays of sunshine at the end of the day on the outdoor sofas. If you look through the palm trees you can even glimpse the ocean too!

Indoors, there is a spacious and open plan kitchen and dining area, with steps down to the living room which has access to the pool and terraces. There is also access to the gardens from the kitchen. The kitchen is bright and modern, with a butcher's block island and with a stone breakfast bar separating it from the adjacent dining room. The living room, with plenty of natural light streaming through the floor to ceiling windows, has Lazer TV with a range of international and UK channels and Wi-Fi. 

All on one level, there are 4 bedroom options at the villa - 3 ensuite bedrooms and 1 extra room that can be a bedroom or a media room. There is a large master bedroom with a super king bed and an ensuite wet room with walk in shower.  Walking down the hallway there is a twin bedroom with an ensuite wet room with walk in shower. The multimedia room has another TV and the sofa can convert to a bed, making this room suitable to sleep 2 children. This room has use of a family bathroom with bath and shower. Off this room is another double bedroom with an ensuite shower room. 

Dunas Douradas is an upmarket, luxury development, situated by the beach between Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago, located in some 76 acres of African pine trees. It is a safe, family-friendly resort with a Roman communal pool and a children’s pool. There is also a pool-bar serving all-day food.There are two tennis courts for lessons for all ages. 


The villa boasts a spacious terrace and heatable pool, outdoor dining and gas BBQ amd sunloungers, all surrounded by well tended gardens with mature plants & trees, outdoor tables and chairs, sunloungers, gas BBQ. There is also a Calcada driveway with parking for one car.

We do recommend car hire when staying in Dunas Douradas. Although the beach and communal pool areas are walkable, to do a proper supermarket shop you will need a taxi/ hire car.

From Dunas Douradas and within a 5 minute walk you can eat at Xenia, Albatross in DDBC and then you have the fabby restaurants on Vale do Garrao beach: 2 Passos, Fins, Antonio Ta Certo, Izzys Beach Restaurant and Julias. In fact, this area has some of the best restaurants that the Algarve has to offer!

Within a 5 minute drive you can enjoy a fabulous meal at the following restaurants: Alambique, Sao Gabriel, Thai Garden and at Vale do Lobo, Monty's, Paixa, Sandbanks, Breeze, La Terreza, Amore and Bugatti Bar.  In the local area, there are also other restaurants like Pizza Pasta Fantasia, San Marco and bars like The Melting Pot in Quinta do Lago Q Centre.
