Monte Dourado holiday apartment in the 'quintessential fishing village' of Carvoeiro .

Golf: The majority of Portugal’s best golf courses are located in the Algarve and many are amongst the best in Europe. The mild climate ensures that the game is played all year round. All abilities are catered for and Carvoeiro is a good base for those who want to enjoy the sport whilst on holiday. Many of the clubs allow non-members to play and dress codes are normally less formal than the UK.

Listed below are some of the golf clubs and facilities within easy reach of the apartment. For those who ae willing to travel slightly further afield there are many more to choose from along the Algarve coast.

Vale de Milho

This is a short nine-hole course, ideal for practicing with short irons. Open to non-members and families.

Quinta do Gramacho

Originally a nine hole course which has been extended to become a full 18-hole course. Good technique and club selection are required to play this course successfully.

Vale da Pinta

Situated near Carvoeiro in an old olive grove, Vale da Pinta is a championship course that is, nonetheless, adaptable to any kind of game.

Fabulous holiday can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 2 week holiday in July/August 2013 and couldn't wait to book to go back again in July 2014. Excellent customer service via the owner. The apartment had absolutely everything we could have wanted and really is home from home. Comfortable, clean and spacious. Pool area is clean and well maintained with plenty of sunbeds and parasols. Location is fantastic as just a few minutes walk into the town where there are plenty of shops, bars, restaurants and a glorious beach and the locals are really friendly. Highly recommend staying here. we are Now counting down the weeks until we visit again!

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Excellent apartment and location , it lived up to everything I expected from the description. Monte Dourado is a really well cared for resort. I will definately recommend this apartment to friends and hope to visit again. It is only a very short waljk to the town where there are lots of restaurants, our favourite was 'O' Cantinho.

Comfortable, bright spotless apartment

  • 5 of 5

Hi Rimpkie

Just to say thanks - we had a wonderful 8 days and the apartmrent was perfect with everything we needed. The resort staff were pleasant and could not do enough to help.

The weather was great for the end of October but even if it had not been the apartment was so good we would have loved it, as it was like home from home, Our Daughter and Grandaughter joined us for a few days and they too thought both the apartment and Carverio was great particularly as we could walk into the centre in just 5 mins.

Thanks again Rimpke I'm sure we will be in contact soon.

Kind regards

Apartment in Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a glorious 8 day holiday staying at Monte Dourada, Carvoeiro.

Apartment is excellent with 2 large double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Modern and bright kitchen which has all amenities. Large lounge which has a dining table, large sofa and chairs, television with freesat and wood burning fire. This room is bright with plenty of window space and sliding doors which lead onto a large balcony with table and chairs. This overlooks two swimming pools and excellent views. Apartment is kept clean by cleaners who come in most days.

Surrounding area is pretty and kept in excellent condition with easy parking. Reception is open all day if needed.

There are many restaurants locally and all serve excellent food. Beach is about 10 mins walk which is very pretty.

We found car hire is advisable to hire from airport and for use during holiday should you wish to explore the surrounding areas. Buses are available. Lots of local amenities i.e. mini-market a short walk away and supermarket about 20 mins walk away.

Thoroughly enjoyed our week and do intend to return in near future. Would highly recommend this apartment and Carvoeiro.

Holiday Apartment in Monte Dourado, Portugal

  • 5 of 5

This excellent 2 bedroomed holiday apartment with balcony, is exactly as shown by the photos and description. It is very well equipped, spotlessly clean (with maid service daily) tastefully furnished and well decorated in all the rooms.

The pool area is very well maintained as are all the surrounding outside gardens and parking areas, the views picturesque.

We have enjoyed staying in the apartment for 3 holidays to Carvoeiro in 2005, 2006 and 2008 and we do highly recommend this accommodation

Reception is a short walk away and the staff are very helpful, ready to answer any queries about tourist attractions, car hire, airport transfers etc, and there is also a tourist information office in the main village square near the beach.

We did a lot of sightseing while staying in Carvoeiro on the local buses from Silves Bus Depot and found the local people very friendly, (Portimao beach among many others is well worth a visit). If needed there are plently of taxis for hire and they are cheap.

Carvoeire Village is lovely and unspoilt, the beach is very safe for children and adjacent to the main square, during the tourist season free entertainment is provided in the square, and there are bars and restaurants and a range of small shops in and around the village and a well stocked supermarket for self catering needs.

Great holiday apartment and Carvoeire delightful.
