Fantastic stay in this lovely place

  • 5 of 5

A great apartment in an excellent location. Everything you could want was thoughtfully provided and was in very good condition. Furniture and beds were comfortable and everything well laid out. We didn't cook as there are so many excellent restaurants within easy walking distance (Le Cro, Onze and Ele and Ela to name but a few) but the kitchen was well equipped had we wanted to eat in. Pools were very close as were all other facilities. Information from Richard, the owner, was detailed and very helpful. Altogether a brilliant stay - we can't wait until next time.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind words. I certainly agree with your restaurant choices, and maybe next time, I can suggest one or two more of the same genre.

A very relaxing break

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from Monte Dourado and have had the most relaxing week. We have visited Carveiro several times over the years but always rented villas. It made a nice change to rent an apartment this time. I was surprised at how close all the bars and restaurants were. The people are very friendly. The food very good and the accommodation was perfect for myself, husband & daughter. We would normally come here in August but would definitely consider coming back in May as less busy. And the weather was perfect!!

Will definitely use this apartment again.

A Fantastic Holiday at Ponte Vista

  • 5 of 5

We had a super holiday staying at Ponte Vista!

Having visited Monte Dourado several times, we knew that the accommodation was going to be of a high standard but we were in for a treat- newly re-furbished kitchen and bathrooms and a lovely sea view from the balcony. Also it was in a quiet position in the complex. The booking procedure with Richard was quick and easy.

We had tasty meals at Happys, A Gale and Jota Lita, all of which are on Restaurant Hill. On our last day we enjoyed a lovely lunch overlooking the beach at Martins Grill.

All in all a relaxing holiday in Carveiro

Great for a family rental

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a family (2 adults, 1 child) shops, restaurant, and a beach in walking distance. Very comfortable beds and well set up kitchen for cooking at home.

Will be going back again as soon as we can!

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our second visit to Carveoiro and first to Monte Dourado, as a family of three with a toddler.

The town is a great place to stay with young children; a small beach, friendly atmosphere, clean, loads of choice of places to eat and a bustling vibe down at the square in the evenings, with live music during the summer months and beach games for the kids.

We really enjoyed the apartment and everything was very easy; from the booking process to the transfers / car hire which we arranged through the owners contacts. The reception staff and cleaners were very efficient and helpful and the pools were clean and well maintained. The apt is well equipped and comfortable with everything you need only a 5 min walk away so you don't need a car to get around, but may want to travel further afield to check out some of the other beaches etc. The weather was fantastic - clear, blue skies and sunshine every day, whilst England was experiencing record July downpours and floods!!

Overall, we had a great holiday and look forward to returning in the future.

Thank you to Richard & Ingrid (owners).
