    “Outstanding views & beautiful lodge”

    We have just returned from a 2 week stay at Donour Lodge in Fanore and had a fabulous time. The lodge has breathtaking views all round, but the views from the main lounge window are particularly stunning. The lodge itself is large yet still feels cosy. There's 3 lounge areas so even if you go as a large party there is ample space to get away from each other! The owners, Mary and Chris, are just next door and were very kind and welcoming. Even though they are close by you do not notice it at all ...

There's 3 lounge areas so even if you go as a large party there is ample space to get away from each other! The owners, Mary and Chris, are just next door and were very kind and welcoming. Even though they are close by you do not notice it at all as they keep themselves to themselves so it still feels very private. We cannot recommend this place more and hope they keep it running for many years to come as we will definitely return again.
