Drumlin Villa is a stunning villa with it's own private pool situated on a quiet cul-de-sac in the fabulous area of Quinta do Sobral. The villa is located on a small hill, hence the name Drumlin, from the Irish word droimnin or "little ridge". The Villa is very spacious with lots of natural light. The interior is fitted to a very high standard with modern decor throughout.

The Villa is located an easy 45 minute Motorway drive from Faro Airport and is only 10 minutes to the Spanish border.

The villa offers the perfect setting for exploring the Eastern Algarve. Within a 15 minute drive there are 6 golf courses to choose from including the prestigious course of Monte Rei Golf designed by Jack Nicklaus.

Your closest town is Castro Marim, a typically Portuguese town with a lovely castle and quaint shops. The nearest beach, (Praia Verde) is 3km away from the Villa
The towns of Tavira and Vila Real de Santo Antonio are within easy reach and are great for an evening stroll and a leisurely drink at one of the many street cafés.

For your reassurance Drumlin Villa has an "Alojamento Local" (letting licence) and is registered with the Portuguese authorities to ensure that specific safety standards and regulations are met. It is a legal requirement that the number (####/AL) be displayed in the property description.

Mixed feelings

By Bob M on 24-Oct-2019

The owner and property manager are very courteous and responsive. The check in process was quick and easy. We were warmly greeted by the manager and given an overview of the property. The owner left a complete set of instructions and recommendations, the blue notebook" that proved quite valuable. The location was not ideal for our small group as it is too remote for walking anywhere such as a restaurant or grocery store. It is a five minute drive to Praia Verde which has miles of beautiful beach to walk and some good restaurants too. The interior is quite spacious and the kitchen well equipped. The living room is very large and could use either more furniture or for the existing to be re arranged. There were just a couple of small glitches during our stay that were dealt with quite quickly. So great ownership and management!

Great Villa!

By Mark on 04-Aug-2019

We have just returned home from our 2 week stay at Drumlin Villa. It had everything! The location was in a private residential area, well respected by all and close to Castro Marim. The villa was huge and had everything from pots & pans to hot tub, pool table, table football, books , DVD's to an enormous pool for private bathing. The owner Nuala ensured everything was right for us and kept in contact from the booking until departure. Kerry & Ian managed the day to day aspects and greeted us with a pre-organised welcome pack. Definitely be back!

Great for 2-3 families with children - there is something for everyone .

By Mario E on 22-Jul-2019

Wir können das Objekt wärmstens empfehlen, es lässt keine Wünsche offen. Die Kinder und wir hatten viel Spaß im Pool und Whirpool, das gemeinsame Essen auf der Terrasse mit Grillecke und wundervollen Sonnenuntergängen wird lange in Erinnerung bleiben. Die Küche ließ keine Wünsche offen, Getränke wurden mit dem Eiswürfelspender des Kühlschranks perfekt gekühlt, Kaffeekapselmaschine war auch da (Dolce Gusto)... Bis zum Strand/Meer (Praia Verde) waren es ca. 5 Minuten mit dem Auto, der atemberaubende Blick vom darüberliegende SPA mit Infinitypool war genial, die Treppen zum Strand vom gebührenfreien Parkplatz waren gut zu laufen, bei Gehbehinderung stehen auch Parkplätze am Strand ohne Treppen zur Verfügung. Die Matratzen waren neu/fest und nicht durchgelegen. Die Kinder hatten in der Doppelgarage einen Billiardtisch und Dart ... auf dieser Ebene sind auch zwei Schlafzimmer mit separatem Bad, so dass jede Familie ihren Bereich hat. Die Wohnstube war riesig und die Couch sehr bequem, so dass die Teenies auch gut „abhängen“ konnten. Auch für alle perfekt war das wirklich schnelle Internet :-)

Lovely stay in a wonderful villa managed by great hosts

By Ryan on 12-Jul-2019

One of the best things about this villa is how many things are available for you to use. For example, there is a washing machine, pool table, table football, swimming pool etc, but it's the little things that make the difference, like all the floating toys for the pool, the sun umbrella for the beach, the numerous pots, pans, cutlery and crockery, as well as all the food bits that people leave behind, like salt, cooking oil, flour, pasta etc. These small things made a huge difference! Communication before and during our stay was excellent, with Nuala and Kerry all very quick to respond and very helpful in doing so. This was a truly lovely villa and I'm very glad we picked it! I will point out a few very small details that I feel could be worked on, but I emphasise that these are minor - we had a very nice stay! 1) The large sail shade in the back garden flaps around a lot in the wind and makes quite a lot of noise. If you're sleeping in the back room, it will keep waking you up. We asked to have it taken down and the next morning it was gone. 2) The shower downstairs and the large shower upstairs had a tendency to overflow if you put the water on maximum. There seems to be a slow drainage issue. We just reduced the power or used the other shower upstairs, but it would be good to get the drains cleared. 3) You need to be careful not to leave any small bits of food on the floor in the kitchen or patio outside, or ants will come in force to get it. Maybe there could be some effort put in to eradicate them? 4) Downstairs can feel and smell a little damp sometimes, because of the lack of natural light I guess. Not much you can do about this though? Maybe it just needs regular airing. That's it! Thank you Nuala :-)

Amazing place in an amazing location!

By Joel A on 02-Jul-2019

The photos don't do this place justice, it is a beautiful home! It has all the amenities and also an a/c unit in every room! The pool and view were also spectacular. The owner is very responsive to questions, overall our stay was perfect! We would rent again!

Highly recommended!

By Tricia Watts on 09-Jun-2019

Drumlin Villa exceeded our expectations in terms of room size and pool size. It was spotlessly clean on arrival and was very well equipped. It was an ideal base for our family party of 8 adults,2 children and a small baby. The owner was most helpful with excellent communication over booking. Highly recommended!

The villa was amazing !

By Debbie on 25-Apr-2019

Fantastic villa, perfectly placed for exploring

By Christian W on 01-Nov-2018

We had a lovely stay at Drumlin Villa. Everything worked really well, from correspondence with Nuala the owner, through booking and paying, to meeting the key holder Kerry when we arrived. The villa was clean and welcoming, the pool is a great size and was nice at night when it lights up. We stayed with just our two children (8 & 11) and they absolutely loved swimming in the pool. The pool table downstairs was also a nice addition to an already great place. I can envisage staying here with more of the family would be brilliant. In terms of location, the local towns are wonderful and there is plenty to do and see. It is perfectly suited to a quiet, exploring, beach, relaxing holiday whilst still being near enough for a day trip across to Seville in Spain if that takes your fancy. Definitely would recommend this villa to friends and family.

Superb villa with all you need for a great holiday

By Stephen W on 16-Sep-2018

This villa has all the facilities anyone would want. The pool and patio are a great size with nice views. Pool was cleaned twice in the week we stayed. We used the bbq on many occasions. The hosts representative Kerry was really helpful and checked us in at the time that suited us which we really appreciated. Many thanks for helping make a fabulous holiday.

Very tranquil

By James G on 28-Aug-2018

Loved this place. No one over looking you and felt like home from home. Greeted by the lady maintaining the villa and she was very helpful and full of local info on where to go and best places to eat. Highly recommend this villa. Very spacious for our 2 families.

Fantastic 2nd visit to Drumlin Villa

By MJH on 14-Aug-2018

We knew what to expect having stayed at the villa previously. I'm pleased to say the standards are still as high as we experienced before. The correspondence with Nuala (the owner) was first class and timely. The local agents, Kerry and Ian, were really helpful and very professional. The property is very well maintained and had everything you could think for a comfortable stay. The addition of Aircon to the downstairs bedrooms was a really pleasant surprise. The Guest Guide had been updated since our last visit and we tried some of the new restaurants listed. Dom Rodrigo's was a good find and Panoramico is excellent for a special occasion. I'm happy to recommend to friend's and family (and anyone who's looking for a great experience in this idyllic part of the Algarve).

Amazing Villa

By Alison A on 05-Jun-2018

We were a party of 5. I came with my sons 1 girlfriend and I nephew. Ages 17 to 21. We had the most amazing week even in not so amazing weather. The villa could not have been better. The games room gave us a very good laugh especially when the females won the darts and pool. The swimming pool is a great size. The boys loved cooking on the BBQ. Our highlight was sitting in the hot tub chatting and star gazing at night. Very well kept villa with everything you could possibly need in a holiday house. The surrounding little towns and beaches are beautiful. Now having seen how simple it would have been to drive when we return hiring a car would be a must. Plenty of lovely restaurants in a very close proximity. As we did not have a hire car we used local taxis. Their service was again amazing. Thanks again to Nuala for letting us have the use of this beautiful villa.

5 Star

By Nikki K on 09-Sep-2017

We had 2 weeks at the Drumlin Villa. We travelled with our 2 teenagers and both of our Mums. Lovely big villa, very well equipped and a very peaceful location. Pool is exceptionally well maintained and Kerry (local contact) couldn't of been better. Local towns within short drive and are very quaint. Car was essential!

A perfect family holiday

By Paul E on 14-Aug-2017

We stayed at the beautiful Drumlin Villa for two weeks, it was a family holiday for 7 people aged between 12 and 64. Everyone had a great time and there was everything we needed in the villa. We had excellent service from Kerry and Lee upon arrival and were given good advice on supermarkets restaurants etc. Communication with Nuala was excellent and every query answered efficiently and precise. The pool was cleaned twice per week and was a welcome respite from the Portuguese heat. The jacuzzi was a lovely way to relax and watch the sunset each evening. I've already recommended the villa to family and friends and will book it again on my next visit to Portugal. Many thanks to all for the great time we had. Paul Rachel and Cody Edmunds from Kent.

Gold medal for relaxation

By Kevin D on 27-Jul-2017

Let's start with initial inquiries and the booking. Big thanks to Nuala who answered all questions promptly and the booking was smooth and spot on. On arrival at the airport rang Kerry who was waiting at the villa and our pre arranged welcome pack with every item we asked for in cupboards and fridge. Bang on. Kerry and Ian told us everything we needed to know and left us to it. Now onto the villa and all I need to say is WOW. It was just what we all wanted and there was 10 of us. Everything that was stated was there and if we needed anything Kerry or Ian were there. We didn't hire a car which was our decision but got a taxi firm from nearby Castro Marim to ferry us round in 2 taxis for a few euros. Minimum fuss. Back to the villa and the pool and jacuzzi. Absolutely first class. It was cleaned twice a week whilst we were there. The villa itself was spotless. Not a lot left to say only big thanks to Kerry and Ian for their help and thank you to Nuala for letting us stay in your beautiful home.

Superb well equipped Villa, ideal family holiday.

By Fred L on 02-Jul-2017

We had a great time staying at this beautiful and very well equipped Villa (the second fridge in the games area/garage greatly welcome) for our two weeks. We all really enjoyed the pool, especially since it was so hot whilst we were there. The kitchen had everything we needed and the ice “on tap” was great. Your local agents were fantastic and quick to respond on any issue or queries that we had. Beaches accessible by 10 min car ride. Lots of points of interest such as Castro Marim, Cacela Velha, Monte Gordo, Vila Real de Santo Antonio, Ayamonte(Spain). Shops and Supermarkets also within 10/15 min car ride. Extremely good fish restaurants, as well as your piri-piri chicken and burger joints, mainly in Vila Real and Monte Gordo.

Blown away. Such a gorgeous villa!

By Lauren W on 13-Jun-2017

The villa was absolutely beautiful and spotless when we arrived! Plenty of fresh bath towels, beach towels and bed covers. The pictures do not do this villa any justice! The views from the villa are incredible and sun sets you can see are breathtaking. There was 9 of us that went and we honestly has the best holiday! There was something for all of us to do in the villa, whether it was playing pool, to cooking a bbq, to watching tv or sunbathing! We were not bored in the slightest. Nuala was such an amazing help, I was always emailing her with queries and questions and she got back to me straight away, very helpful indeed. I would 100% recommend this villa to everyone and we can't wait to go back. Would highly recommend getting a car to explore!

Excellent mid-term break

By MJH on 18-Nov-2016

We booked the villa for a short break during the kids mid-term school holiday. The temperature was high enough for the kids to use the pool all week. The patio area is excellent and a real sun trap. We found the villa very comfortable and well equiped. The villa is close to Castro Marim, a charming old Portugese town and also close to the Spainish border (great for a day trip).

Fantastic villa for family holiday

By Linda H on 18-Sep-2016

We stayed for a family holiday with 6 adults and a 5 month old baby. The pictures and description on here don't do it justice it was much more than we had expected. What a beautiful villa and so well equipped. It has 4 good sized double rooms. Having rooms downstairs next to the pool table room and having its own bathroom meant my son and his fiancé had some privacy which was good. The kitchen is stunning with everything you could possibly need and a well stocked food cupboard with basic items that made cooking easy. We loved the barbecue area and used this most nights. Loved time in the pool although was cold but we braved it each day and appreciated all the inflatables left there to use. J and P were lovely people and made the whole process from booking to leaving so easy. They went out of their way to bring a cot , high chair and baby chair to the villa for my grandson to use which was so helpful. The book with places to visit came in handy and we had a lovely celebration meal at the restaurant at the Praie Verde beach. All in all a perfect holiday and so sad we had to come home.
