Not only boasting a gorgeous beachside location, many of the resort's properties also have indoor and/or outdoor swimming pools, ensuring residents can go for a dip at any time of the day.

Living in Dunas Douradas
For property buyers across the world, climate is an important factor that needs to be considered. Annually, the Algarve experiences over 300 days of sunshine and given Dunas Douradas' location on the southern tip of Portugal, the area benefits from the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, offering temperatures reaching the high 20s during the height of summer. Even in the winter months, temperatures hover at around the 13-15 degree mark, ensuring coats and thermals are not necessary.
Living in Dunas Douradas means a host of activities are available at your doorstop. From the 5-star Dunas Douradas Beach Club resort - featuring a spa, jacuzzi, health club and pool bar as facilities - with floodlit tennis courts, pool parties, live music events and renowned golf courses within the area (San Lorenzo Golf Club, Pinheiros Altos Golf Club, Vale do Lobo Royal Golf Course to name but a few), there's certainly no shortage of areas for tourists and residents to venture.
With Faro airport less than 20km away from this luxury resort, Dunas Douradas is close enough to public transport connections but far away enough not to be disturbed by heavy traffic. On the other hand when you're walking amongst the quiet cobbled walkways and gardens of Dunas Douradas, you'll wonder whether it is worth returning to 'civilisation' ever again!
