Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Monte Dourado, Portugal your home away from home

Monte Dourado is a small development right in the heart of Carvoeiro. The low-rise villas and apartments in Monte Dourado all have access to a wonderful communal swimming pool in the centre of the complex, and are surrounded by the bars, restaurants and shops of Carvoeiro, all within a very short walk of your rental property. From its hilltop position, a villa in Monte Dourado provides guest with stunning views along the Algarve coastline and across the Atlantic, and every facility you could hope for can be found within easy reach.

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.

Places to visit on holiday to Monte Dourado, Portugal

The town of Carvoeiro used to be a small fishing village, nestled in a rocky cove and glorious sandy beach. There are some wonderful attractions to see in Carvoeiro, the most impressive of which must be the Algar Seco, a huge cave tunnel.

Weather in Monte Dourado, Portugal

There are around 300 days of bright sunshine every year in Monte Dourado, with temperatures in July and August making the beaches completely irresistible. Daily temperatures during summer can reach 40˚C on occasion, and during the winter months, the conditions are absolutely perfect for golf holidays, dry, bright and mild.

Travel to Monte Dourado, Portugal

There is excellent access from Faro International Airport (FAO), the Algarve’s main transport hub. Most British airports have direct services to Faro leaving daily, especially during the summer months. Bus services connect Faro and Carvoeiro, but in order to really get the most out of a Monte Dourado holiday, taking a hire car is an excellent option.

Fantastic - can't wait to return!

5 of 5
We stayed at Casa Crisdi with our three boys (14, 16 and 18) for 11 nights and had the most wonderful holiday. The house is fantastic value for money - it's really more like staying in a villa as it's so spacious. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped and the small additions such as airer, washing line and pegs, BBQ, TV with DVD player, air conditioning abd use of family's own games and poolside equipment make all the difference to an easy and relaxing holiday. The pool area was lovely - mostly fairly quiet - with plenty of sunbeds available whenever we wanted them. It is a short walk from town and so everything is on your doorstep (admittedly it is quite a steep climb coming back up but this didn't bother us). It is also worth noting that the extra bed which my 14 year old used was very substantial and he said the comfiest camp bed he'd ever slept on! We had the most wonderful holiday and hope to return very soon! Many thanks to Chris for being so accommodating with our dates and to his team out there who maintain the property and checked us in and out without a hitch. Now to the gym to work off all those Portugese custart tarts!!

Great location next to the pool and five minute walk into Carvoeiro. Spacious, clean and modern apartment with everything you need including beach towels and two bathrooms. Would definitely stay here again!
