About the property

Just A 5 Minute Walk From The Centre Of Town And The Local Beach

232 Monte Dourado is a great sized two bedroom duplex apartment on the popular Monte Dourado complex in Carvoeiro. Situated just off Rua Do Barranco there are no hills to climb which is definitely unusual in Carvoeiro. Situation on the 3rd floor of Block 2 in Monte Dourado this apartment is ideal if you want to be close to town without all the noise of an apartment right in the centre. There is lift access to the apartment so no need to worry about the stairs.

On entrance to the apartment there is a small entrance hall leading through to a bright and modern lounge with a large flatscreen TV, DVD player and CD player as well as a selection of CD´s for your enjoyment. The lounge has comfortable seating for 4 people and a dining area with table and chairs for 4 and there is a wood burning stove and two radiators available if you are renting the apartment through the winter. The Kitchen has been recently renovated and is fully equipped for those who want to eat in and don´t fancy experimenting with the BBQ!

The apartment has free wireless internet available.

Upstairs there is a double room with air conditioning and a fan, there access to a small terrace with table and 2 chairs and en-suite bathroom with bath and over bath shower, there is a further twin room with two single beds, air conditioning and TV - this room has access to the large terrace with table and chairs, two loungers and a BBQ, it provides the perfect setting for al-fresco dining. All the patio doors leading to the terraces have lockable handles so parents can relax. There is a 2nd bathroom with shower enclosure next to the twin bedroom.

The apartment has been well decorated throughout and we hope it has everything to make it like home from home, it offers an unusual amount of space for a two bedroom apartment so ideal for families, couples or groups of friends

Fabulous, relaxing and safe place to stay

  • 1 of 5

I took my 9yr old daughter with me and all my prior concerns regarding safety and incorporating a child friendly atmosphere were laid to rest within the first couple of hours. The apartment is amazing, it is very nicely decorated with plenty of space and amenities. A very comfortable stay. It is also located perfectly to the buzz of the village; only a short walk from the square and the beach. The pool is great,although quite cold. It's better to just jump in lol. There are dedicated sun loungers per apartment so no hunting for spare every time you visit the pool.

Outside the apartment going into the village there is a lovely hum of activity; very relaxing and pleasant. There are plenty of shops and a food lovers paradise! So many restaurants to choose from. I chose to both eat out and in to suit our budget. I loved the option of being able to do that, the apartment kitchen is so well stocked with utensils; there a couple of grocery shops within 2mins.

We opted to take the boat trip from the beach to see the caves and it was a fantastic way to see the coastline, just beautiful..and good fun! Every night there is entertainment in the square whether its a singer, band, fire daughter was entertained every night. The black and white festival was on whilst we were there; it provides a really fabulous atmosphere. Unfortunately we left it early as my daughter can't cope with loud and crowds. However, it was still a really great experience. I would return just for that again!

All in all, we had a truly relaxing, fun experience and will return again one day. It is definitely a great place for children, I felt that my daughter was completely safe at all times which as a single parent is a wonderful feeling. I was able to relax. I left with the feeling that I had only experienced a tiny % of what Carvoeiro has to offer!

The whole experience from booking to meeting Emma and Mike to returning home was just so easy and stress free. I totally loved it.

Convenient, Clean, Wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Carvoeiro at this two-bedroom duplex. The apartment was very convenient, very clean, and very well supplied. The beds were very comfortable - and although we had some rain and wind, the bedrooms were never cold or damp. Emma and Mike were wonderful hosts, responding quickly to any of our inquiries. We appreciated their immediate service to restore our TV reception and to install new bulbs. We would recommend this apartment for its convenience to the town and restaurants - in hilly Carvoeiro there were no hills to climb! Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Fantastic Duplex Apartment in a beautiful Village

  • 5 of 5

Have been coming to the Algarve for over thirty years and this apartment was one of the best we have stayed in.

It has everything you would need for a self catering holiday the beds are very comfortable and everything was spotless ,

It was great having the 3 places to sunbathe although it was January we had plenty of sun a bonus

The booking process was excellent and Emma and Mike met us at the apartment which was great .

There was a welcome pack in the fridge which we appreciated very much .

The toilet down the stairs was a bonus as I am on the wrong side of seventy it was brilliant not having to climb the stairs.

The village of Carvoeiro is a beautiful place to stay and this apartment is close to all the amenities .

Excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was exactly as described. The location was excellent - with numerous restaurants within a 5 minute walk. The apartment had everything we needed and was extremely clean and well-maintained.

Emma and Mike were amazing! It was such a nice gesture to meet us as we arrived and when we left. Thank you.

Emma gave us some recommendations of local restaurants, plus we discovered many more. We spent a day at Splash n Slide - we bought our tickets from a shop on "Restaurant Hill" and since there was 4 of us, it turned out cheaper to go by taxi (the taxi rank was a 3 minute walk away from the apartment). We also got a taxi to the local Supermarche to bulk buy our groceries, but the shops nearby were perfect for buying day to day items such as water and bread.

It was such a great location, we have booked again to visit in summer 2018.

The apartment was very clean and bright.

Its location means no hills to climb to access ,the beach is 300 yards away and restaurants,bars and supermarkets are nearby.

Comfortable, quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a relaxing week here with our two children (11 & 13). The apartment was comfortable with air conditioning in the bedrooms and fans elsewhere. It had everything we needed. The location was perfect in that it was quiet, yet only a few minutes walk from the beach and local restaurants. The pool was really lovely too. We didn't have a hire care but took taxis to go to further afield beaches and the larger (cheaper) supermarket (all journeys we took were <10 euros). We spent most days on the local beach (snorkelling) and by the pool relaxing and having a daily ice cream from a great selection. Other highlights: boardwalk to the plunge pools (Algar Seco) & boat trip from the beach. Emma and Mike were really welcoming, had put a few goodies in the fridge and gave us some useful taxi / restaurant tips.

232 Monte Dourado is situated on Rua Do Barranco, just a 5 minute walk to the beach and less than 5 minutes to the restaurants and bars. Carvoeiro is a small picturesque fishing village with a great selection of cafés, bars and restaurants. The centre has a variety of shops, fantastic for hunting down local souvenirs. Ideal for families and couples, with a number of sandy beaches it's easy to lose yourself in the beautiful surroundings, alternatively take a trip to the local water park (5 minute drive) or enjoy 18 holes on some of the best golf courses in Europe (Pestana is only a 10 minute drive away).

Carvoeiro is a family friendly resort with some fantastic restaurants and bars which will keep you entertained until late in the evening.
