5 things you can do in Portugal – in our latest holiday accommodation

You might know us for our high-quality lettings in Yorkshire – but we’ve moved a little further afield for our latest venture.

We’ve been developing holiday accommodation in sunny Portugal – and we’d love for you travel with us to see it.


Where is the property in Portugal?

Called Villa Bam, this five-star resort in Dunas Douradas is situated between Quinta do Lago and Vale do Lobo on the Algarve coast.

If you don’t fancy leaving your accommodation, you’ll be in the lap of luxury for the duration of your stay, with air conditioning, BBQ facilities and much more in these beautiful villas for let.
