About Karl and Daphne

As a young family we had a very happy 20 years of trading in the remote Zulu Kingdom of South Africa.

On being politically displaced in 1980 we retired early to the North Coast of Durban and 15 years of “part time farming” our beef ranch in remote northern Natal.

Having more leisure time we toured extensively and whilst in Europe we fell in love with the Algarve and promptly acquired a holiday villa, which inevitably in 1995 became our permanent home.

Having acquired more holiday villas to rent out we now enjoy meeting guests from around the world, many of whom are now our dearest friends.

Annually we visit our families in the southern summers of South Africa and Australia and returning home to enjoy and love the Algarve even more.

Karl and Daphne purchased this villa in 2007

Why Karl and Daphne chose Olhao region

The Ria Formosa Wetlands and offshore Islands being a protected world heritage, our part of the Eastern Algarve is fortunately spared from mega tourist developments and consequently remains more traditionally Portuguese; the most friendly and polite people you could ever wish to meet.

An idyllic easy going lifestyle, festivals, village markets, offshore islands endless golden beaches and all year sunny blue skies

What makes this villa unique

A very private and peaceful country locality, set in natural shrub land all around, for unwinding and ultimate relaxation.

Easy access to village shops and affordable restaurants, also several beaches, sport activities and entertainments just a short drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

1. This villa exceeded by far anything we could have hoped for. James and Hilary



2.What a beautiful villa -very comfortable and we all enjoyed the pool, loved the nights lights and BBQ. Enjoyed bat watching from the rooftop. Portugal very friendly and lovely scenery. We would not hesitate to come back. Tracey, Brian, Christie and Becky



3. What a great Villa! So well laid out and equipped beyond expectations!! Karl and Daphne have obviously put a lot of thought and effort into the way they run their properties and from all the comments in this book, they're getting it just right. David, Helen, Ollie and Max



4.After last year's wonderful stay at your villa Monte Fava we did not think we could match it - BUT our stay here in Monte Mar has been brilliant and just as perfect. Thank you Karl and Daphne for ensuring our stay in your lovely villa was as comfortable as possible. Best wishes Paullette, Chris and Sue.

A most comfortable home from home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at one of Karl & Daphne's other properties last year and this was equally comfortable in every way. The villa is fully equipped with every comfort. The welcome pack is very generous and the provision of oils, salt, pepper, tea bags, washing liquids etc. is more than we have found in renting holiday properties for many years all over the world. Beds and seating are very comfortable, and the villa is spotlessly clean. The phone that Karl provides is very welcome for immediate support if necessary. Outside the pool is excellent and heated to a comfortable temperature for our stay in mixed weather in late April early May, it was used every day. We are returning for a longer stay later this year. Thank you Karl & Daphne.

Happy day's

  • 5 of 5

After a straightforward journey with the sat nav co-ordinates taking us directly to the villa gates, we were greeted by the villa owner Karl , after a short tour of the villa by Karl we were left to enjoy our holiday in total peace and tranquility, Karl is a perfect host and is always on hand by the use of a mobile phone located in the villa and contact's you before anyone is due as to not interfere with your holiday and privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at villa Monte Mar and would definitely recommend to anybody wanting to enjoy a beautiful villa in the wonderful Algarve countryside. Karl and Daphne provided​ us with everything we could have wished for from a generous welcome pack, logs for an evening fire, charcoal for the BBQ to the nice touches of a printed note welcoming us on our arrival, we have had many villa holidays and would not hesitate to return to villa Monte Mar, Karl was in contact via email after our initial booking with helpful advice and made the booking process simple and reassuring. All in all five star service from start to finish including Sylvia who serviced the villa with fresh bedding and towels during our stay. Thank you for making us feel so welcome and are genuinely looking forward to returning again, kindest regards Mark and Gina

Fantastisch Huis

  • 5 of 5

Net terug gekeerd van een week in het mooie huis van Karl en Daphne.

Prachtige omgeving niet ver van het leuke Moncarapacho.

Het huis is van alle gemakken voorzien en er was aan de kleinste details gedacht. Wij hadden dit nog nooit meegemaakt en hebben al diverse huizen gehuurd in deze streek. Ook het heerlijk witte beddengoed vonden wij top! Het huis was erg schoon en we kunnen dit huis zeker aanbevelen!

Clean, Well Presented, Good Layout, Very Welcoming

  • 5 of 5

A very well kept property with very welcoming owners. nothing is too much trouble for Karl and Daphne. We have stayed in one of their other properties many years ago and this is of the same high standard. I cannot say how much I would recommend this villa or Monte Fava to other people. If you are going to the Algarve these are the places to stay.

A little gem of a property in a private location

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we had used owners direct, Karl the owner took away any concerns we may have had, he made regular contact with us before the holiday and then greeted us at the villa. We arrived early so he showed us a lovely place to get a coffee and bite to eat whilst the villa was cleaned. We were not disappointed by the villa, it is spacious and very well maintained, the pool is heated which makes it so inviting whatever time you want to take a dip. We had total privacy not overlooked at all, but what made this holiday for us was Karl, he made sure everything was attended to, making a special trip to the shops to bring us a new dvd player which we were not expecting. He has a mobile telephone with a list of essential contact numbers i.e. doctors, police which I thought was a great idea, thankfully not needed. If you are thinking of going to Portugal, try out the Eastern Algarve, Moncarapachio is a taste of the real Portugal with some fantastic beaches nearby. I would thoroughly recommend villa Monte Mar and hope we can go back again sometime very soon.

From the Owner

The Ria Formosa Wetlands and offshore Islands being a protected world heritage, our part of the Eastern Algarve is fortunately spared from mega tourist developments and consequently remains more traditionally Portuguese; the most friendly and polite people you could ever wish to meet. An idyllic easy going lifestyle, festivals, village markets, offshore islands endless golden beaches and all year sunny blue skies

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Faro at 20 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Moncarapacho at 3 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Olhao at 8 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Benamore Golf Tavira at 20 Kilometres Nearest Train : Fuseta at 8 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A22 at 6 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Moncarapacho choice of 6 restaurants at 3 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Fuseta at 8 Kilometres Car: necessary

The Algarve is Portugal's holiday playground, blessed with all year around sunshine, unpolluted blue skies and crystal clear seas.

Summers are very hot and dry, parched meadows and endless beaches with the cool Atlantic are a refuge from the heat of the day. Evenings are refreshingly cooler, and are ideal for dining out, listening traditional "Fado", some serious clubbing or simply good eating in the regions vast choice of restaurants, famous for fresh foods.

Spring and Autumn are milder and are preferred by many, still hot and mostly all blue skies with possibly a stray shower from winter rains restoring the lush green countryside and spectacular wild flowers.

Being a winter rainfall zone, Algarve Winters are surprisingly mild, with some colder days interspersed with days of warm sunny skies, cool evenings ideal for a heart-warming log fire were central heating is merely a surplus luxury.

Unlike central to west Algarve's bustling and crowded tourist resorts, our Eastern Algarve, having protected World Heritage wetlands and offshore islands, is fortunately spared from mega tourist developments. It consequently remains more traditionally Portuguese; the most friendly and polite people you could ever wish to meet.

An idyllic easy going lifestyle, with village markets, festivals, uncrowded beaches and all year wall to wall blue skies.

The region offers a wide variety of activities and entertainments, and is well served with shopping malls, regional produce and crafts.

For a change from beach life there is dolphin-watching, scuba-diving, surfing or sailing. You can also visit famous Oceanariums and swim with dolphins, splash away at Water Worlds or enjoy a luxury boat cruise along the spectacularly beautiful coastline. There are also the options of riding a bicycle, horse riding or walking in unspoilt countryside.

With golf as choice activity there are Europe's top courses to hand, and in the Algarve nowhere is too far away to go.

MONCARAPACHO (3Km). The nearest town has a welcoming atmosphere, small market and local pottery as well as the usual shopping amenities. Further on is FUSETA town on the waterfront, from where a short hop across by little ferry takes you to the popular Island beach. Onwards on your way towards the well liked TAVIRA a town which in itself is a fast growing tourist area and well worth a visit, is SANTA LUZIA with rows of restaurants along a lovely palm lined waterfront, from where you may hire water taxis to enjoy your own private beach paradise for the day. Nearby is a miniature rail which crosses the marshes to endlessly long island beach of Isla Barril.

OLHAO (7Km.) is a flourishing old fishing town, and has a small harbour and jetty with small ferries and water taxis that shuttle across to the nearby island beaches. These include Armona and Culatra, as well as the distant light house island of Farol. On the waterfront is a famous undercover fresh fish and vegetable market, inside two huge Moorish style halls. A bustling daily market is a must see for an insight into day-to-day Algarve life. An endless choice of restaurants makes this town a seafood paradise.

AZINHEIRO (Nearby (5Km) Is a small hamlet saddling the mountain ridge. Located in a narrow crossways linking Monte Miguel, Sao Bras, Estoi and Olhao, there is the popular local snack bar O Rissol owned by very friendly Paulo and Sandra who speak perfect English.

ESTOI (.8Km) Is a prominent old town in the foothills of the Calderao mountain range. The recently restored "Pink" Palacio de Estoi is a true sleeping beauty palace and, with the Milrue Roman Temple ruins further along, well worth a visit.

SAO BRAS (12Km.). Is a bustling inland town nestling against the lovely outback cork hills. It has all the convenient shopping amenities and very affordable restaurants, along with the ever popular phenomena Luis dos Frangos, or just "Chicken Louis"

FARO (20Km) Is the capital town and has quaint old cobbled shopping walkways and the nearby fortressed old town is well worth a meander. The ancient cathedral bell tower provides a splendid view over the city, wetlands lagoons and inland hills.

From the small marina in the town centre boats offer group tours of the Ria Formosa Wetland Reserve with its famous birdlife, and also visit pristine Isla Deserta for idyllic beachcombing amid a myriad seashell.

The very modern Algarve Forum shopping mall on the outskirts of town offers good retail therapy with specialist chain stores, cinemas, and restaurants.

HOW TO GET THERE:

The nearest airport of Faro is only 20 minutes away and is served by many budget airlines such as EasyJet, Monarch, Ryanair, Jet2, Airberlin etc. At times some national airlines also offer direct flights in to Faro.

The alternative Portuguese airport of Lisbon is only 3hrs drive, Seville airport in Spain is only 2 hours away. Some guests take a leisurely drive to the Algarve which in itself is a lovely scenic trip with interesting stop overs along the way.
