About the property

Luxury, Self Catering 4 Bed, (sleeps 12) House With Pool, Close To Beach.

Stunning 4 bedroom house (sleeps up to 12) with large outdoor pool, situated within the urbanization of Audiencia, next to Praia Verde, in the unspoilt East Algarve, 15km from Tavira and 8km from Vila Real de Santo Antonio. Set among pine trees and close to all amenities the house is five minutes walk (250 metres)from the superb sandy beach and two restaurants and a cafe/bar. Casa Azevado is within a few minutes drive of five superb golf courses, including the new Jack Nicklaus, Monte Rei course, and backs onto a national reserve of pine trees. Casa Azevado, laid out over three floors with terraces. The house back onto the beautiful national park and towards the sea, and is luxuriously furnished throughout its four bedrooms, large living room and dining area, together with a large kitchen. The linked house is air conditioned and is luxuriously furnished to a very high standard.

The beautiful Ria Formosa!: The Ria Formosa in the Algarve is a beautiful labyrinth of lagoons separated from the sea by a coastal dune system which is broken up by various natural inlets. It is one of the most important nature reserves in the network of wetlands that links Europe and sub-Saharan Africa. The Ria has an enormous variety of natural habitats that provide refuge, feeding and breeding areas for an infinite number of flora and fauna and is a haven for birds.

The beaches of the isles of Faro, Barreta, Culatra, Armona and Tavira form a natural barrier to the Ocean. Behind are the dunes, sometimes just a narrow strip and sometimes wider and then come the labyrinth of lagoons and small sand islands and channels. At low tide other salty habitats are uncovered forming marches and salt marshes.

A wintering ground for many migratory birds. The Estuary has an enormous variety of natural habitats and biotopes that provide refuge, feeding or breeding areas for an infinite number of organisms.

Golfers to the East Algarve!: If you're looking for a golfer's paradise, then look no further than the Algarve for your ultimate golfing experience.

With its brilliant, sunny climate and dramatic courses throughout the region, it's easy to see why the Algarve is the most popular golfing destination in Europe.

There are over 30 golf courses in the Algarve, ranging from 9-hole courses stretched over the Algarve grassland, to dramatic coastal 18-hole courses set amongst the picturesque cliffs.

This makes golf here enjoyable for everyone, regardless of ability, and guarantees that you will find the perfect course for you.

The East Algarve boasts the wonderful Monte Rei course, designed by Nicklaus, Quinta do Vale course designed by Ballesteros,by the river Guardiana, as well as Quinta da Cima, Ria, Benamor and Castro Marim.

Athletes and sportsmen note!: Near Casa Azevado is the renowned Vila Real de Santo Antonio Sports Complex,one of the most highly regarded centres in Europe. The complex is a high performance training centre accredited by the IAAF and is recognised by the Portuguese Olympic Committee as an Official Training Centre. The mild climate of the Algarve, combined with the natural surroundings of pine forest and beach, is conducive to improved performance by athletes. The complex at VRSA and the golden sands of Monte Gordo attract a number of professional teams and national squads to the region for warm weather training. A huge number of sports are catered for. Whether you are preparing for an important event or simply looking to have a well deserved relaxing warm weather training break with friends, VRSA is the ideal location to prepare for competition or to simply wind down.

Excellent Villa/House Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we stayed in a villa on a foreign holiday so we were excited and apprehensive at the same time. There were 13 in our group 6 adults, 3 teenagers, and 4 young children staying less than 2 full weeks. But, to our relief, the owners were accommodating with our numbers and our dates. From the moment we arrived (12 midnight) until we left, we found it spacious, well-equipped, and clean. During our stay a cleaner came by to change the bed linens and a pool guy stopped and did "his thing". A sign that the house is well-maintained! We, all found the villa, the neighbourhood and nearby Monte Gordo Town perfect for our summer getaway. The pool provided private fun and relaxation. The built-in patio barbeque (which got a hefty workout during our stay) made it too easy to spend whole days at the villa instead of the beach. On days we did make the short 200 metre walk to a beautiful, spacious and clean beach and we loved it!. We read the past reviews and visited the local bakery for fantastic breads/cakes. The kids liked the ice cream selection too! Another review recommended the bike rentals from the Town. They were a fantastic way for the everyone to go exploring and get some exercise. The bird sanctuary was a nice relaxing (15 minute) walk to the town. The folder of information in the villa, which we found very helpful, had recommendations and numbers for dental/medical emergencies, restaurants, super markets and most importantly, taxis. We got lucky enough to meet up with Jose Carlos a local taxi man with his own business (3 cars and drivers). He ended up as our tour guide/personal driver! Accommodating any number up to 13 of us. He was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Highly recommend him-I left his business card in the folder. He recommended a wonderful restaurant in Villa Real. It was overlooking the river. Fantastic evening. Another day we took the ferry (€5/person) to Spain. I recommend this too. Finally, Else and Andrew were the perfect hosts-They were there when you needed them, but not "hovering" if you wanted your privacy. They were helpful and accommodating and were only a short distance away if you needed anything. Sometimes owners/managers aren't available if you need to speak to them. Overall summary: Great villa + friendly people + perfect location = Fantastic Holiday. Only sad part of our stay, the day we left! Highly recommend Else and Andrew and this property to anyone. We are definitely planning on returning!

Great villa with pool

  • 5 of 5

Well presented villa with excellent facilities for a great family holiday, kids especially enjoyed the pool along with a great beach on your door step.

Owners on hand and very friendly providing any assistance required along with helpful tips and advice on restaurants . Ideal location for shops and attractions with restaurants providing food of an excellent quality. I would have no hesitation in returning to this villa and would gladly recommend it to my family and friends.

What a lovely place to chill!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the villa for a week .

The villa was immaculately clean and had everything possible to make our stay easy and relaxing.The position of the villa is fantastic and peaceful , and genuinely 250m from the beach and a short bike ride(1km) through the natural park next to the villa is monte gordo town.

If you are staying around montegordo, there is no need to hire a car, the transfers from faro are very reasonable ,but I would strongly recommend hiring bikes for the week , it is very flat there,with cycle lanes, and it was fun for all the family!(even my 14 year old daughter!)We hired bikes from Tur Fortes 15 euros the week!They can also arrange transfers and deliver and pick up bikes from the villa as a package.

The beach at casas da Audiencia is beautiful with fine white sand and not too busy. You can hire 2 loungers and a shade for 12 euros a day and they throw in an extra lounger if needed free of charge!

Montegordo is a family resort so not a lot going on for the older teenagers, although in our party of twenty,didn't get any complaints.

We are definitely coming back here and will use Home away again as Andrew and Else were incredibly helpful.

The down side if any ,are that the villa needs an extra bathroom if 10 or 12 people are staying there! Also we turned up very late in the day and had no food or essentials at the villa(starter pack!) mentioned this to Andrew and he said that if we had requested they could have arranged it, Something definitely to do next time!

Finally the people of montegordo and especially the old lady selling fruit on the way to the beach are so friendly.

Maison agréable à 5mn à pieds d'une belle plage dans un secteur calme

  • 3 of 5
Verified Stay

Nous étions 10 personnes (3 couples et 4 enfants), l'annonce indique que la maison peut accueillir 12 personnes mais sincèrement elle est plutôt pour 6 à 8 personnes (8 si vous acceptez d'avoir une chambre en sous sol avec une toute petite fenêtre et sans climatisation). De plus, il n'y a que deux salles de bain et ça fait juste à 10. Pour les couchages de la salle de jeu, ceux ci sont spartiates.

Sinon la maison est bien équipée et propre (mis à part les fourmis dans la cuisine).

Nous venons de faire 3 maisons différentes ces dernières semaines et en comparaison, même si effectivement la proximité avec la plage est pratique, le prix est légèrement trop cher.

Depois de 1 semana passada nesta moradia, apenas temos maravilhas a apontar, tanto na moradia em si, como no acolhimento pelo Sr. Andrew e Sr.ª Else.

A casa é fantástica, perfeita para umas férias em família e com crianças e jovens. A piscina, os salão de jogos e a proximidade da praia são uma mais valia substancial.

Todo o processo decorreu na perfeição com o Sr. Andrew e Sr.ª Else, que foram super atenciosos, tanto na troca de emails prévia à nossa chegada como pessoalmente, sempre disponíveis para qualquer necessidade.

Aconselhamos vivamente!

Quero voltar!

  • 5 of 5

Boa tarde. Muito obrigada ao casal Derrick pela simpatia nas palavras ao descrever-nos mas modéstia aparte somos mesmo um grupo fantástico! :) e obviamente que o mínimo que podíamos fazer era cuidar da casa e deixa-la limpa e arrumada como se fosse nossa! Muito obrigada pela vossa atenção e preocupação connosco para que passássemos umas belíssimas ferias! Adorei! E por mim voltava ja :) A casa é fantástica, tem muito espaço, muito bem equipada, não nos faltou nada. Ja tenho saudades de tudo! E ir para a praia a pé também é um luxo muito saudável! Recomendo vivamente!

Beijinhos e até à próxima.
