Things to do on holiday to Monte Dourado, Portugal

Carvoeiro Beach lies at the bottom of the cliffs below a holiday rental in Monte Dourado. The beach is just a short stroll from the development, and there are plenty of little cove beaches to discover. Carvoeiro Beach is an excellent destination for water sports, and there are a couple of great surfing beaches, especially for beginners, and parasailing, sailing, windsurfing and scuba diving holidays are great fun from a Monte Dourado property. Renting your own little fishing boat and going on the hunt for tuna, marlin and swordfish is a wonderful way to explore the coast, and if you succeed, you can try your hand at local cooking methods in your self catering Monte Dourado villa too.

Monte Dourado is a world class golf resort too. There are two fantastic 18 hole golf courses within a 10 minute drive of a Monte Dourado villa, with both the Vale de Pinta and Gramacho Golf Courses open to anyone with a handicap certificate. If you would prefer a swift 9 holes in a stunning setting, the Vale de Milho is just up the road. There are also tennis courts within a short walk of a Monte Dourado rental property. Family holidays are particularly fun in the area, with two water parks and the famous Zoomarine aquarium all within 20 minutes.

The tourist feel is contained to the coastal regions of the Algarve. Staying in Monte Dourado means that you are only a few minutes from rural Portugal, where traditions live on strong, with horse and carts a regular site along the roads. The walking, cycling and horse riding possibilities are almost endless from Monte Dourado accommodation.

                                                                We stayed in this apartment before and revisited it this year. Ideal location and apartment is clean, modern and perfect for a couple or small family. The pool area is quiet but there is the additional option of privacy with the terrace above the flat. We used the terrace a few times and enjoyed the privacy. The stairs up to the terrace are manageable but young children might require care when using them. The apartment is lovely; kitchen is good and there is a large living space also. Complex tends to be quiet late June and early July. Good and easy access to Carvoeiro (steep but manageable hills to climb when returning). Would recommend this apartment and would look to rent it again.

                                                                Wow. Beautiful accommodation with everything you need.

                                                                Fantastic accommodation in a lovely peaceful setting. Would highly recommend. Carvoeiro is a lovely place and will definitely return to both resort and accommodation. Lovely touch was welcome pack on arrival.
