being 2km away from serro sao Miguel ,a travel to the top of Cerro da São Miguel and you won't be disappointed. Amazing views across the whole Algarve. Good road to the top and places to park. Worth parking half way and walking the rest so you can admire the views. Take the track off road to see rare wildflowers and abundant butterflies. Keep your eye skyward and you may see an eagle soaring on the thermals. Well worth a morning visit

Imagine being at the top of the Algarve´s world, gazing the sunrise or the sunset, with the beautiful atlantic ocean at one side and the raw small mountains surrounding you.

Despite of being the highest, São Miguel mountain is rather low so it is very convenient to drive, bike or walk up there, specially for those sun magic moments.

Other things to do: For nature lovers, nature trails along the Ria Formosa Reserve where bird watching is in abundance. Travelling West there are some excellent shopping centres in Faro and Guia as well as the famous Water Parks and Zoo Marine all easily reached by car or by day trip coach.


The Spanish border town of Ayamonte is approx 25 km by car, where the delights of another country can be sampled along with wine, Tapas and shopping. Ayamonte can also be reached by ferry from Vila Real. Seville is about 170 km away and budding historians may enjoy Castro Marim castle.

Golf: This is perfect accommodation for golfers wishing to sample the excellent courses situated in the Eastern Algarve. Within a 20km radius there are 7 courses to choose from. Benamor and the 2 Quintas (Ria and Cima) are the most popular and can be reached within several minutes. The prestigious new course of Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus now has its first 18 holes open and is continuing in its development to the second phase offering the height of golfing luxury - although a costly experience, this is a real treat for golfing fanatics wishing to experience a little high life! Travelling only 10km further on towards Spain, the challenging course of Castro Marim, along with its famous country club comes highly recommended and just across on the border are the Costa Esuri and Quinta do Vale courses now growing in popularity. We can arrange golf at discounted rates.

Colina Verde: The Colina Verde is a small inland 9-hole course situated in Maragota, between the coast and the Algarvian mountain range.

Beaches - The Algarve is famous for its wonderful sandy beaches and the Island of Tavira is no exception. As a natural island separated from the mainland by the River Formosa, it is reached by catching a ferry from a designated point in the harbour. A excellent range of facilities is offered including beach bars, fish restaurants, Portuguese cuisine, pizza restaurant to name but a few. Also for hire are sunbeds and shades and together, these ingredients give a wonderful tropical holiday atmosphere amongst white sandy beaches and the rolling Atlantic Ocean akin to the Caribbean! There are a number of other beautiful beaches that we can also recommend such as Barill, Manta Rota and Praia Verde

Pedras del Rey , Barril Beach - Linked across the Ria Formosa the choice is an old steam train that doubles up as a goods train for the restaurants by the beach, which chug's along at a snails pace or a 2 km walk up through the Formosa to the beach, if you walk, take your time to spot the hermit crabs if the tide is out or smell the fresh pines as you meander through the tree's towards the beach.

Enjoy a wonderful few hours on the beach collecting all manner of shell's that have washed up on the shore, then retreat to one of the low key restaurants for a wonderful lunch before either returning to the beach or heading back to the villa.

Is a car recommended for this property?

Yes, especially in the heat of summer…and for reaching all the beautiful and interesting places further afield. Car rental, taxi transfers

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a week in this villa. It is located in a very quiet and nice area. The house is even bigger than you think when looking at the pictures. The water in the swimming pool was warm, so the kids really enjoyed it all day long. The game room is great (pool table, table tennis, PS3, Wii...). The owners, Henrique and Teresa, are really nice and they always tried to make us feel at home. They gave us good advice about places to visit. They also own a nice restaurant, Colibri, that worths a visit. We definitively would go back.

Great for large parties of family or friends

  • 4 of 5

Lovely stay at this huge villa, used all the facilities including the football pitch and Badmington area and games room. ~The pool was large and kept warm. Hottub was large aswell. Situated in a lovely secluded and quiet spot but only 5min drive into the village where there is a small supermarket and places to eat. Aldi and Lidel about 20 min drive and a little further on a lovely marina with a host of places to eat etc. We went to Preya Varde beach which was lovely and had shops and restaurants and café to sun lounger service. Henrique was very helpful and friendly and a super host and only a phone call away. Some minor things need addressing i.e. broken light fittings and a few small problems with two of the showers but nothing that detracted from the enjoyment of our stay. 7 of us stayed and we had ample room, everything was clean and tidy. Only sorry we couldn't stay longer! Thank you Henrique

Nice and luxurious villa

  • 5 of 5

We went to Moncarapacho with 14 persons (Family) and we spend nice holidays in the villa. Even in october we had nearly 30 degrees and spent a lot of time in the big heated pool.Everything was like it is explaned in the internet. The rooms were clean when we arrived and especially the kitchen is well equipped.The owners are very keen on making everthing comfortable for you and making you feel welcome and home.One of us needed to consult the doctor and Henrique was very helpful to find a good one, to arrange everything and to show us the way to the clinic.He even accompanied us to translate. We visited restaurant Colibri twice and were satisfied all the times: The meals were tasty and not expensive.Henrique and Teresa gave us an account of 20 percent.Espcially the steaks were absolutely great!!!We enjoyed a nice week in villa Colibri and recommend it to everybody who wants to relax in nature.I hope we will come back one day.

Car: recommended

Being only 2km from the villa, Moncarapacho, the local village, has a 16th century church at its heart yet has supermarkets, restaurants, a selection of local café/bars, shops, a bank. The area’s beaches are absolutely superb. Many are based on sandbanks, or small islands, which can be accessed by boat, or in one case, a miniature train. These boast kilometres of golden sand with both decent facilities and plenty of space to escape the crowds. In addition the nearby towns of Tavira, Olhão and Estói are all worth a visit, while the proximity of Spain means that a day trip is little effort. The Rio Formosa Natural Park is a must for birdwatchers.

Being only 8km from the villa, Fuzeta is easily reached and comprises a tidal river bordered with colourful fishing boats and pavement cafés, leading up to the estuary which has a sand beach and beach house where one can catch the small ferry boat which regularly crosses over the small stretch to a large, clean sandy coast. The beaches in this area are all EEC blue flag.

Flights and car hire: Although we leave it to guests to arrange their own flights to Faro, we may be able to help with car hire by recommending some reliable firms. Car hire is really necessary as public transport is not easily accessible from the villa; it is best arranged before you leave. You can pick up your car at Faro Airport when you arrive, and leave it there when you return home.
