                                                            A great villa close to Silves

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            This was our second visit to Monte Nora. Having stayed one week in 2014, we immediately booked this years two week stay on our return. The villa is well situated being close to the 'developed strip' but looking down onto it - and perhaps half an hours drive to many of the beaches and attractions (you do need a vehicle to get the most from your stay). The villa is kept spotlessly clean, and the garden and pool well maintained. It comes with everything you could want for your stay. Silves is the nearest town and has supermarkets and restaurants as well as a health centre and pharmacy, should the need arise. Silves is an historic centre that shouldn't be missed, but then there is so much to see - even the reservoirs to the north are worth a visit. We went east to the Spanish Border (VR de S Antonio, and took a train ride from there to Faro return), looked in on the villages of Tavira and Olhao, a little bit of Faro, Loule (and the markets), a tour of the hills north of Loule taking in Alte and Salir - not all on the same day I hasten to add. We went as far west as Praia da Luz, took the boat around the rocks of Ponta da Piedade, saw Alvor, spent time on the beach at Praia da Rocha, visited Ferragudo and Carvoeiro, the Algarve Shopping complex and Albufeira! We would recommend the villa to friends and relatives and would have no hesitation in returning, but feel we must also visit other countries!!
