Beautiful Villa in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely recommend this beautiful Villa and we will be booking to return for our family summer break next year. This was our first trip to the Algarve and we cannot wait to return. Upon our arrival at 10pm we were very impressed with the accurate directions and information about local amenities provided to us as we were travelling in the dark, although, the airport (Faro) is only a short distance (approximately 35 minute drive) and its proximity to the Villa is very convenient. We found the villa to be very welcoming and spacious and, meticulously clean. There is a lot of room and is very much a "home from home" with a comfortable lounge area, well equipped kitchen and many options for dining whether you choose the breakfast dining room, formal dining area or selection of outdoor dining areas. The pool is lovely and a very good size and is directly in the sun all day and has sea views. The location of the villa is perfect! Take a 5 minute drive in all directions and you will be at a beach. The area is surrounded by restaurants although you are far enough away from everything to enjoy absolute peace and quiet. We explored the beaches daily and would recommend the local beach Caramujeira. The views from the shore are spectacular and we found it to be family friendly. We would recommend the boat trip exploring the caves from Benagil. This trip was one of the highlights of our time in the Algarve. Overall we give 10/10 and all we would have wanted in addition would have been to stay a little longer.

Car: necessary

Monte da Vinha is located in the much sought after Caramujeira area, centrally located between Portimao and Albufeira(part of Lagoa councel). Caramujeira roughly stretches from Porches(Alporchinhos) to Carvoeiro and has besides its partly undulating evergreen landscape a huge stretch of coast line with ao the magnificent bay beaches Praia da Marinha(Top 10 beach Portugal´s!!), Praia do Benagil and Praia da Albandeira, many other beaches only tall located also favourable is the short distance to ever popular Carvoeiro several golf courses and Carvoeiro Clube de Tennis. Carvoeiro is a traditional fishermen´s village, fortunately having kept an authentic atmosphere over the years, making it to one of the most popular villa holiday destinations in the Algarve. The centre looks down onto a small beach bay enclosed by rock formations, Praia do Carvoeiro, slopes with original building style properties enclose this picturesque scenario, its square is renowned. This little square right in front of the beach with numerous restaurants and bars around it is an absolute must to stroll around. In Carvoeiro huge tourist complexes have never been allowed, herewith ensuring the lovely village character which makes Carvoeiro so popular amongst both residents as well as tourists, offering renowned ice creams almost at the beach square, furthermore a wide variety of Portuguese- and international cuisine restaurants.

Still an attraction is the little municipal market adjoining the famous "restaurant hill" where you will find a huge selction of (international - and Portuguese food) restaurants. At the market you can buy fresh bread, meat and fish daily, the 'bica' (traditional Portuguese espresso) cannot be left untried. At its two centre beaches, Praia de Carvoeiro and Praia do Paraiso, several traditional fishermen´s boats invite to go and see the caves - you see beautiful rock formations and caves, made by the 'hands of nature', especially at low tide, especially from the sea you have a fantastic view over the impressive Algarve coast line with its golden sand beaches and magnificent rock formation raging up to 50m vertically out of the Ocean.

Golf: Golf is definitively the most popular sport in the Algarve, no wonder when realising the climatological conditions all year round and the exceptional beauty of lay outs (most of them by famous international golf architects) and surroundings. Read below a selection of some golf courses in your region out of the Algarve' approximately 40 golf courses; . Closest to villa is Vale do Milho Golf, a 9 holes 3 par course, great to practice your short game, often promotional prices are being offered. Just west of carvoeiro are Gramacho - + Pinta Golf course, 36 holes in total, driving range available. North of Portimao you will find Golf do Morgado; recently opened, almost a 1000 acres, making it one of the biggest golf courses in the Algarve. Fantastic scenery, pure nature, no villas/apartments but 6 lakes, hills, valleys, 1000's of olive, carob and fig trees, the unspoilt Algarve! Palmares Course, West of Alvor: the breathtaking scenery can be appreciated from most of the course, with views over the Alvor river estuary, beaches and the bay of Lagos. There are 5 authentic links holes amongst the dunes close to the ocean exposed to the prevailing winds. Other holes throughout hillsides and valleys full of trees. Penina Course, West of Portimao: it has hosted the Portuguese open 8 times and is built on flattish parkland terrain with fairways lined by countless trees and with tricky water hazards. Also several long par-3 and par-4 holes, requiring both length and accuracy.

One can reach about 15 Golf course within half an hour driving!

Sport / leisure: In a region with such a large ocean front, the Algarve offers almost every activity you can think of related to (the use of) water. Also for the ones who are not particularly keen to be in or around water, there are plenty of activities to spend a wonderful time in the Algarve! Read below a wide selection of leisure- and sport activities : fishing, swimming, cycling, golf, horse riding, Jeep safaris, mountain biking, wind and kite surfing, diving, tennis, walking, jet ski, para sailing, water ski, sailing, (lawn) bowling, deep-ocean fishing, carting, dolphin- and bird watching, speedboat-, catamaran- and sailing boat rentals, ultralight flights, mini-golf, etc. water parks, zoos, family parks (Zoo Marine, Aquashow and Krazy World) as well as several museums invite to trips.
