CHARMING VILLA WITH PRIVATE JACUZZI, 500 METERS FROM THE BEACH

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Monte Gordo - Villa Audiência 145

4 bedroom self catering villa, situated between Monte Gordo and Altura

This charming 4 bedroom villa, boasts an outdoor jacuzzi, ideal for those hot summer days and nights! It has a good sized living room and dining area, which opens out onto the BBQ area. It has a fully equipped kitchen, is fully air conditioned and has internet. The villa is ideally situated between Monte Gordo and Altura. Just close enough to all the local night life but just far enough away to avoid the summer crowds! The villa is located in the exclusive Audiência development, next to Praia Verde, in the unspoilt Eastern Algarve. This area is mainly made up of private villas and has direct access to the beach. Whether you are a beach lover, golfer, athlete or you just want to relax with a glass of the local wine in the jacuzzi, this is the place to be. Towards the beach there is a nature reserve, which is a beautiful walk or bike ride into the town of Monte Gordo, and is a favourite of birdwatchers. The sports facilities in Vila Real Santo António are regularly used by training athletes throughout the year.

Athletics and Sport: Close to the villa is the IAAF accredited sports complex of Vila Real de S. António. The complex is equipped with modern facilities that attract top athletes to this region. There is an 8 lane 'polytan' track together with indoor training facilities and a gym with Olympic free weights. Jumping facilities and dedicated throwing facilities are also available, where many other sports are catered for. The Complex is one of the most highly regarded centres in Europe. It is a high performance training centre recognized by the Portuguese Olympic Committee as an Official Training Centre, that attracts a number of professional teams and national squads to the region for warm weather training

Monte Gordo is an established holiday resort with a flat blue flag beach, stretching over 20km. This is ideal for warm weather training sessions. There are over 12km of off road tracks that can be found in the pine forests that lie between Vila Real de Santo António and Monte Gordo.

Ria Formosa Natural Reserve: The vast beaches and isles from Faro to Tavira form a natural barrier to the Ocean. Behind are the vast expanses of dunes and after those a labyrinth of lagoons and small sand isles, mud flats and canals. At low tide other salty habitats are uncovered, because the sea penetrates right up to land, forming marches and salt marshes

With such physical diversity, it is not surprising that the Ria Formosa Estuary attracts such a variety of life forms and provides a wintering ground for many migratory birds. It is one of the most important nature reserves in the network of wetlands that links Europe and sub-Saharan Africa and is very popular with wildlife watchers from all over the world

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Marina and Mike,

My family and I would like to thank you both for the wonderful week we have spent at your lovely villa. The villa is well equipped, very clean and comfortable and as you say on the site, close enough to everything but far enough away from the crowds. The area is also very quiet and the tennis courts kept my children busy for hours! The weather was great and the fantastic beach was all ours. The walking distance to the beach and to Monte Gordo was brilliant as we did not want to drive most of the time! Renting the bikes was also a plus as we rode through the woods into Monte Gordo and Vila Real. Marina and Mike thank you very much for being such good hosts and for making our holiday unforgettable. Hope to see you soon.

splended and confortable house

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderfull 2 month holiday. The house is well equipt for 2 familys with each two children. So a very cheap house for summer holidays. Everything you need is present. The bakery around the corner is perfect for nice breakfasts. The beach 5 minutes walk, Monte Gordo over the beach 20 minutes walking. Very nice beach with restaurants. The owners live nearby and gives you all the support you need. Internet is fast. Dog allowed. That combination you hardly will find. I cannot immagine a better place to have your holiday. Next winter we will stay there 3 month!

Fantastic villa for warm weather training

  • 5 out of 5
If you're a runner, or athlete, then this villa is perfectly suited for some warm weather training during the off season. I stayed here with friends for a week as part of my training for London Marathon. There are plenty of runs to do straight from the door step including wide trails through the forests and endless miles along the beach. There is a track nearby that has excellent facilities, including running track (plus all T&F equipment), gym, swimming pool, etc. Across the border in Spain there is a 47km long bike trail which is ideal for long runs. Bikes can be stored in a secure shed outside.

As the other reviews say, the villa is furnished to a high standard and perfectly equipped with everything you could possibly need. If you like to prepare your own food, the kitchen has plenty of pots, pans and plates and with several big supermarkets a short drive away - you can keep away from the snack bars of Monte Gordo! After a long day, it's nice to relax in the living room with tv/dvd player, or sit in the jacuzzi outside! These facilities made staying in this villa much more enjoyable then a hotel. There are also many sights to go and see in the area, we enjoyed visiting Castro Marim and Tavira.

Marina and Mike are both very friendly hosts and are close by if you need any help. I would really recommend both the location and the villa and look forward to returning myself!

What a beautiful Villa!

  • 5 out of 5
I was met at this lovely home by Marina, the wonderful and charming owner/host. Marina made me feel at home immediately. I entered the Villa to find a fantastically open and airy space. Very well appointed kitchen and sunlit living space. 4 very spacious and comfortable bedrooms- perfect for a large family. French doors that led me to a lovely and sizeable garden patio (complete with dining area, full outdoor cooking area with bbq and a 4 person jacuzzi). I was in heaven!! You must see this Villa to fully appreciate it's clean, open, airy and comfortable spaces. Then I strolled down the street to the beach. Oh my goodness. In less than 5 minutes I was standing on a beautiful sandy beach that seemed to stretch on forever. I spent many days between this fantastic Villa and this incredible beach. I had never been to Portugal before, but instantly felt at home. Marina was always there if I needed her (she lives a few blocks over) but never intrusive. Great family, excellent hosts. I feel like I made some friends there! In the future I plan to get a group of friends together and return.
I travel extensively for work and pleasure and am rarely fully satisfied with hotels or Villas that I have rented. But I could not have been happier with this place. I highly recommend it.
You will love it and find yourself not wanting to leave. 5 stars!!!

Lovely holiday home!

  • 5 out of 5
Such a great place to stay! It was clean and comfortable with everything we needed and plenty of room for our party (6 people). One of the best things was being able to sit out in the evening, have a bbq and make the most of the jacuzzi! Perfect for a relaxing holiday!

It's only a short walk to the beach and we found Monte Gordo accessible for a bit more night life! It was also really convenient for shops and it's a really pretty area, there was plenty to explore - we visited Tavira, Cacela Velha and even made a day trip over the border to Spain.

The owner, Marina, was lovely - really helpful and ready to give us any info about the local area.

We enjoyed our stay here so much that we just booked again for later this year!

Great location holiday home

  • 5 out of 5
We loved it so much last year we are delighted to have the chance to return this Spring. The beach is so close and the jaccuzi in the evening a real bonus (relax with a g&t). The house has everything we need including a great barbecue area. All the shopping needed within easy reach.
The ensuite to the bedrooms was very useful since we were a party of three couples.
The area is very interesting, we visited, Cacela Velha, Castro Marim, Vila Real de St Antonio and drove up the river to Alcoutim. It is also within 1/2 hour to Spain, Ayamonte is a pretty little town. In the evening a visit to the Casino in Monte Gordo is a must and there is a great ice cream parlour on the sea front nearby.

The Villa is located in the exclusive holiday residential area of Casas da Audiência, which has around 250 large villas and town houses and direct access, on foot or by car, to the beach. It boasts two superb restaurants on the beach itself, and a Sushi bar. There is also a local café and bakery, where you can buy bread freshly baked on the premises and some basic food. The beach is 5 minutes walk from the villa, through the pine trees, and its’ beautiful unspoilt golden sand stretches for miles. Nearby is the Ria Formosa, a nature reserve stretching 67 kilometres along the coast to Faro. Part of Audiencia backs onto a National Park, full of pine trees surrounding a beautiful unspoilt lake that is a magnet for wild birds and ducks. It is excellent for walking and cycling in. The villa is within 5 to 15 min. drive of several top golf courses: Castro Marim Golf, Quinta da Ria, Benamor, Quinta de Cima, the new Monte Rei course designed by Jack Nicklaus and Quinta do Vale designed by Seve Ballesteros.

Other Activities: Bird watching, Green Bowling, Kite Surf, Canoeing, Cruising.

Golf: The Algarve has some of the finest golf courses in the world. Indeed the region has a world wide reputation for golfing excellence. The mild all year round climate makes playing golf in the Algarve an absolute pleasure, even in the winter. The East Algarve has 5 very different golf courses: Benamor - A very friendly and welcoming club. A good choice for groups of higher handicappers, with wide fairways and not too many hazards. Water does, however, come into play on a few holes

Castro Marim - The Eastern Algarve has developed very quickly in the last few years as a serious golfing location. This is one of the first courses that got rave reviews from visiting golfers and it is still one to put on any Eastern Algarve itinerary.

Monte Rei - The only Jack Nicklaus designed course on the Algarve. This is a stunning layout, with first class service from the time you arrive at the bag drop.

Quinta da Ria - A lovely golf course built on a cliff overlooking the Ria Formosa Natural Park. Although not as technically difficult as its sister course next door, it is still ranked in the top 10 courses in Portugal.

Quinta de Cima -This is a must-play course for any golfer staying in the Algarve. Ranked as one of the top 3 courses in Portugal by the Peugeot guide

Quinta do Vale - Opened in 2008, this Seve Ballesteros course, close to the Spanish border, is one to add to your itinerary. With Monte Rei & Quinta de Cima very close, you can see why golfers are flocking to this area.
