Updated: 21-Oct-2016
Just A 5 Minute Walk From The Centre Of Town And The Local Beach

232 Monte Dourado is a great sized two bedroom duplex apartment on the popular Monte Dourado complex in Carvoeiro. Situated just off Rua Do Barranco there are no hills to climb which is definitely unusual in Carvoeiro. Situation on the 3rd floor of Block 2 in Monte Dourado this apartment is ideal if you want to be close to town without all the noise of an apartment right in the centre. There is lift access to the apartment so no need to worry about the stairs.

On entrance to the apartment there is a small entrance hall leading through to a bright and modern lounge with a large flatscreen TV, DVD player and CD player as well as a selection of CD´s for your enjoyment. The lounge has comfortable seating for 4 people and a dining area with table and chairs for 4 and there is a wood burning stove and two radiators available if you are renting the apartment through the winter. The Kitchen has been recently renovated and is fully equipped for those who want to eat in and don´t fancy experimenting with the BBQ!

The apartment has free wireless internet available.

Upstairs there is a double room with air conditioning and a fan, there access to a small terrace with table and 2 chairs and en-suite bathroom with bath and over bath shower, there is a further twin room with two single beds, air conditioning and TV - this room has access to the large terrace with table and chairs, two loungers and a BBQ, it provides the perfect setting for al-fresco dining. All the patio doors leading to the terraces have lockable handles so parents can relax. There is a 2nd bathroom with shower enclosure next to the twin bedroom.

The apartment has been well decorated throughout and we hope it has everything to make it like home from home, it offers an unusual amount of space for a two bedroom apartment so ideal for families, couples or groups of friends

There is a private entrance path from the ground floor of the apartment block to the shared pool, the pool is a lovely spacious area with loungers and parasols and as well as the main pool it also has a separate shallow pool area ideal for young children. We do provide one pool towel per person so you can save a bit of room in your luggage.

The Monte Dourado has a reception service with also tennis courts available for hire, all equipment can be hired at reception.

The apartment also has a safe and hair dryer available and our managers can provide cots and high chairs for a small fee.

Comfortable, quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a relaxing week here with our two children (11 & 13). The apartment was comfortable with air conditioning in the bedrooms and fans elsewhere. It had everything we needed. The location was perfect in that it was quiet, yet only a few minutes walk from the beach and local restaurants. The pool was really lovely too. We didn't have a hire care but took taxis to go to further afield beaches and the larger (cheaper) supermarket (all journeys we took were <10 euros). We spent most days on the local beach (snorkelling) and by the pool relaxing and having a daily ice cream from a great selection. Other highlights: boardwalk to the plunge pools (Algar Seco) & boat trip from the beach. Emma and Mike were really welcoming, had put a few goodies in the fridge and gave us some useful taxi / restaurant tips.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Carvoeiro.. It was just what we wanted and so near to all the amenities. The apartment was everything we needed and we found everything of the highest standard. We shall certainly be coming again next year. Thanks to Emma and Mike for meeting and greeting us and also Mikes help with our luggage and seeing us off on our departure. To 2 elderly ladies this makes a big difference.

Lovely apartment & fab holiday! :)

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my boyfriend stayed for 1 week - an absolutely lovely apartment, clean & tidy & contained everything we needed for the week & is right in the centre of Carvoiero. Also a nice swimming pool which is shared in with the other apartments. We had a lovely holiday, lots of restaurants & bars -spoilt for choice! And lots of nice local shops. Would definitely recommend - it's a lovely friendly area & not too busy & loud - and a lovely little beach & nice walks nearby. :)

We stayed here from 22nd August for two weeks and loved every second of it! The apartment was spotless when we arrived, the apartment itself was modern with everything you'd need. We found Emma & Mike excellent to deal with and they did everything to make our stay enjoyable. We found the apartment to be a great base as we were central with everything on our doorstep! Would definitely recommend to anyone!!

Well-appointed, spacious and comfy

  • 5 of 5

The duplex nature provides ample living space for a family of four. Noise levels at night are minimal (due to stone build?) so kids sleep soundly. The air con in the bedrooms also help with this.

The front entrance to the block accesses the main high street, taking the steep hill out of the equation that can be a burden getting to other Monte Dourado properties.

Just a word on the nearest pool, there is only limited space in the water for younger children who are not confident swimmers, it gets deep quite quickly. Not a problem though, there are plenty other pools to choose from on the complex within short walking distance.

We also took advantage of the tennis courts onsite, 10Euros per hour plus a small deposit for equipment hire.

Wholly recommend the resort, the Monte Dourado complex and Robinsons Retreats for a relaxing, family holiday.

The Clegg Family, 2014.

232 Monte Dourado is situated on Rua Do Barranco, just a 5 minute walk to the beach and less than 5 minutes to the restaurants and bars. Carvoeiro is a small picturesque fishing village with a great selection of cafés, bars and restaurants. The centre has a variety of shops, fantastic for hunting down local souvenirs. Ideal for families and couples, with a number of sandy beaches it's easy to lose yourself in the beautiful surroundings, alternatively take a trip to the local water park (5 minute drive) or enjoy 18 holes on some of the best golf courses in Europe (Pestana is only a 10 minute drive away).

Carvoeiro is a family friendly resort with some fantastic restaurants and bars which will keep you entertained until late in the evening.
