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.

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.

Family holidays are particularly fun in the area, with two water parks and the famous Zoomarine aquarium all within 20 minutes.

                                                                Excellent apartment and ideal location

                                                                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.
