Lovely villa at a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice and relaxed stay at the villa with its private pool and quiet location. If we needed anything Madeline was there in a sec for us. Very nice and warm Portugese lady who spoke very well English. With the supermercado around the corner and lots of nice restaurants this was a perfect spot for us to explore the Algarve.

We enjoyed every aspect of the accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Mundo Vista and enjoyed every aspect of the accommodation. Special thanks to Madalena (the housekeeper) who took great care of everything.

The house was very comfortable and everything was working as it should be (a great relief) . The pool was perfect and the location could not be better.

We will recommend this villa to all our friends and we are even thinking of booking the villa again (in near future or maybe next year), since we liked everything so much.

Best regards,

Oebele, Oswald, Maarten & Jolijn

PS. Restaurant Ysconderijo in Sao Bras is excellent / worth a visit

Thoroughly enjoyable holiday

  • 5 of 5

This year we visited villa Mundo Vista with friends. The four of us had the most wonderful time. The villa has everything you need and lovely views and is in a beautiful situation. We all found it so relaxing and made use of the pool everyday. We visited the local towns and markets and found the Saturday produce market in Loule bustling with locals and wonderful fresh fruit and vegetables.

We found the local restaurants very reasonable and of a good standard and therefore it was not necessary to cook. We still couldn't resist the lovely fruit. Our breakfast was taken on the patio everyday. It was so relaxing. We would all love to return to this lovely villa again. It was a tonic.

We would certainly recommend this villa to friends and family and thank Madeline for welcoming us and being so friendly.

Can't wait for another opportunity to go.

Evelyn, Mick, Fran and Brian

Had wonderful relaxing holiday in a villa that was home from home, everything you needed was at your finger tips. The local resturants were not only good but cheap too. Everyone we met were very helpful.

Madelene was wonderful so helpful and full of local knowledge. We shall go again in the near future.

thank you

A Sao Bras Holiday at the secluded 'Mundo Vista' V

  • 5 of 5

Mundo Vista is a secluded quality villa within walking distance of Sao Bras with its market, shopping and quality variable restaurants. You are within half an hours driving distance of Faro and the Algarve beaches taking full advantage of the lower cost services away from the coast.

The villa is exceptionally well appointed with a luxury kitchen overlooking a large dining area which has a lounge area with UK television immediately adjacent to it. The ding area leads out to a large Patio/barbeque area that overlooks the swimming pool and the surrounding hills. A second small patio area off the lounge again overlooks the pool and the countryside view ideal for evening drinks before dinner. There are 3 double bedrooms 2 bathrooms one on suite all fitted out to a high standard. The villa is air conditioned/heat controlled. The swimming pool finally complements the peace quiet and security of the villa. Madelana the manager of the villa was excellent from her original greeting and thro' the period of our lovely holiday. Everything was spotlessly clean and we look forward to visiting the vlla again in the not to distant future

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Faro Airport at 19 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Sao Bras at 200 Metres Nearest Ferry : Faro at 20 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Colina Verde at 8 Kilometres Nearest Train : Faro at 20 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A22 Estoi at 5 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Sao Bras at 200 Metres Nearest Ski : N/A Nearest Beach : Faro Island - beautiful sandy beach at 20 Kilometres

São Brás de Alportel is an ideal place to stay if you want to explore the lovely countryside in the foothills of the Algarve. It's also not far from the coast if you want a day at the beach and there are some excellent golf courses within a short drive.

São Brás de Alportel, in common with much of the Algarve, was a settlement in Roman times and later inhabited by the Moors, and is a mix of old and new, with typical, low white Algarvean houses amongst the slightly dusty, grander merchant houses from its wealthy past. The area near the church is the older part of town and typically Algarvean with narrow, cobbled streets criss-crossing each other and small shops and cafés in between the houses. As you move further away from the church the streets widen and modern apartments take the place of the older white washed houses. There are lots of shops and supermarkets, banks, restaurants, cafés - everything you need in fact! A little further away again and streets of new villas and low rise apartments edge the town.

São Brás is only a short distance from the City of Faro, to the south, and the picturesque market town of Loulé to the west and both are worthy of a visit.
