We live on Anglesey and have two grown-up children and three grandchildren, all of whom enjoy staying at Villa Oleanders. Mel Jones is a retired consultant orthopaedic surgeon and expert witness. Awen Jones was his medico-legal practice manager. A significant proportion of guests who have visited Villa Oleanders work (very hard) within the NHS at Ysbyty Gwynedd hospital, Bangor, north Wales.
Since the children were small, we have been visiting Carvoeiro – somewhat unusual for us to return to the same place like this – so clearly we fell in love with the area. In 2005 Mel had a conference in Lisbon and we decided to spend a few days in Carvoeiro before driving up to Lisbon. We made the mistake of looking in estate agents’ windows – the rest is history…
Living on Anglesey, we have a choice of flying from Liverpool or Manchester airports and we can make it door-to-door in seven hours on a good day. Faro airport is 65km from the villa with motorway almost all the way so it is pretty quick to get to Villa Oleanders .
The scenery in Algarve is great, as are the beautiful beaches. The people are friendly and welcoming. The whole Algarve area is easily explored from the Spanish border to the end of the old world in Sagres to Alentejo.
Hopefully we can share with you a little part of the world we thoroughly love and enjoy.
