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.

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.

                                                        Excellent stay, great location, close to the beach.

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        We had a great week in this property. The pictures do not do it justice, especially the view from the roof terrace, where we made use of the bbq. The tv channels were an added bonus, with sky sports, sky tv, and numerous movies. The bed was the comfiest rental I have ever stayed in. P.S. All the other reviews I read had me concerned about a huge hill up to the property. I really don't know how old/lazy these people are but it was fine and we were pushing a little one in a push chair. Great stay in Carvoeiro!!!!

                                                        We've had an amazing week The apartment is lovely. Quality and attention to detail is fantastic. Pool area lovely! Kids loved it. Loved Carvoeiro itself es[ the ice creams... Great restaurants & great atmosphere on the square at night. A brilliant place for families. We hope to come again soon.

                                                        Everything was as it said 'on the label' if not more!.Probably one of the better situated apartment's on the complex.An elevated position south facing balcony ,lots of sunshine and a fine view of sea and bay and for further indulgence an excellent get away on the roof terrace, with even better vista. Internally it was faultless, well appointed clean and maintained.His and her showers newly refurbished.Bedrooms fine one of which has double doors to patio and comfortable beds. The heated pool is a bonus if you visit when it is cooler Ample places to eat and shop in Carvoiero and obviously downhill . We have visited the area previously but would find it difficult to better this apartment and would most certainly return and recommend.I expect if other visitors feel like us early booking is advised.!! Sally the owner is most helpful and friendly and more than prepared to help with any queries you may have. Hence overall for self catering vacation 5 star for me.
