Absolutely wonderful villa in a beautiful private, secluded setting in the countryside.

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding in every way! We loved our stay in this beautiful and impeccable villa located off the beaten track in the Portuguese countryside. We spent our days visiting the stunning beaches at Fuzeta, Barril, Cacela Velha and Manta Rota. We also loved exploring the beautiful towns of Tavira and Moncarapacho close by. In the evenings we would just relax at the villa which is set in a very private and peaceful location. The extensive property grounds are filled with many different fruit trees including oranges, figs, pomegranates, grapes, avocado... The house itself is simply stunning, well-equipped, with high quality furnishings throughout and beautifully decorated. We spent many late nights sitting in the outdoor patio area which has a grill and beautiful water feature. The pool area was also a highlight, especially for the children, and my wife thoroughly enjoyed swimming laps in the 13 meter pool! Georg was so flexible and always very quick to respond to my many questions. The caretaker Monika was also wonderful, very responsive and an absolute pleasure. I would highly recommend the Quinta do Sotavento and I very much look forward to returning. Our party consisted of 5 adults and 4 children and we depart with very fond memories of our beautiful holiday and an absolutely wonderful stay. Thank you!

Einfach nur ein Traum

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Haus in der Nähe von Moncarapacho war genau das, was wir immer gesucht haben. Stilvoll, geräumig, mit bester Ausstattung, ruhig gelegen in wunderschöner Natur. Es fehlte wirklich an nichts.

Über eine mit wildem Rosmarin gesäumte Auffahrt gelangt man zum Haus, welches von der Straße nicht einsehbar ist. Auch die nächsten Nachbarn sind auf Grund des gut eingewachsenen und großen Grundstückes, welches liebevoll, aber mit Zurückhaltung gegenüber den Gästen von einem alten Bauern bewirtschaftet und gepflegt wird, nicht wahr zu nehmen. Unzählige Terrassen mit fantastischen Blicken über die Natur bis hin zum Meer lassen einen zu jeder Tageszeit den perfekten Ort für Frühstück, Mittag oder den Sundowner vor dem Abendessen finden. Die Zimmer sind super ausgestattet und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Nahe der Küche gibt es draußen einen tollen großen überdachten Tisch, an dem man herrlich speisen kann. Auch ein gemauerte Grill fehlt nicht und somit konnten wir den ein oder anderen gegrillten frischen Fisch dort genießen. Mit einem Auto kann man in der Umgebung ausreichend Einkaufs- und Restaurant-Möglichkeiten wahrnehmen. Hier hat Monika uns hervorragende Tipps gegeben. Der Pool ist groß und es gibt reichlich Liegen und Sonnenschirme. Das Gelände dort herum ist eingezäunt, was wir mit unseren kleinen Kindern sehr begrüßt haben. Ein toller Ort zum entspannen!

Alles in allem war dies für uns ein perfekter Urlaub in einem traumhaften Haus und wir können es nur jedem ans Herz legen, dort seinen Urlaub zu verbringen. Einfach wie im Paradies... Danke für die tolle Zeit, Georg!

Traumhafter Urlaub in Moncarapacho

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben hier einen wunderschönen Urlaub verbracht, bei dem es uns an nichts gefehlt hat. Das Haus und die Anlage mit dem riesigen Garten sind traumhaft , jedes Schlafzimmer hat seinen eigenen Charme . Es bietet für jeden Geschmack und jede Tagesplanung etliche Möglichkeiten, vom Frühstück auf einer der Terrassen , über planschen und entspannen am Pool oder Grillen am Hausgrill was alles dabei. Wir haben uns insgesamt sehr wohl gefühlt . Empfehlenswert sind Ausflüge auf die isla de fuseta mit dem weißen Sandstrand und ein Tagesausflug zum Praia de Benagil mit den beeindruckenden Felsformationen. Außerdem empfehlenswert in Fuseta ist der frisch aus dem Meer gegrillte Fisch im Straßenrestaurant Casa a corvo.

Die Betreuung durch den Vermieter und durch Monika , die Verwalterin vor Ort war unkompliziert , sehr zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit . Neben den notwendigen Informationen zum Haus erhielten wir auch zahlreiche Insider- Tipps für die Urlaubsgestaltung . Die Kommunikation war einwandfrei.

Wir würden dieses Domizil jederzeit weiterempfehlen!

Vielen Dank nochmal !

Moncarapacho is a small, romantic village, with a good selection of restaurants, small supermarkets and a market hall with daily fresh food. Excellent cuisine can be found at Antonio Restaurant Antonio. The Colibri restaurants and Orangerie are also highly recommended. Bank and post office are available.

Another highlight is the Museum Moncarapacho. It offers a remarkable insight into the history of this picturesque town. Ever can still experience the original, very serene and comfortable life, Algarvios' in Moncarapacho! A beautiful experience, it is finally to climb the Cerro de Sao Miguel. The walk ends with a remarkable view over the region.

One of the newest attractions is the unique Bela Romao Croquet Country Club. The first and only croquet club in Portugal has become an institution. Whether a neat croquet game, exquisite "Tea Time" or a visit to the high-quality restaurant: the club beat (British) 'hearts racing.

The nearest beach is only 10 minutes away. Just south of Moncarapacho is Fuzeta, an enchanted fishing village by the sea. There are two options: the directly subsequent city beach provides rapid cooling. However, the upstream, very characteristic for the Eastern Algarve island chain, Ilha da Armona is the true beach paradise Fuzeta's. It can be reached in a few minutes with an extra furnished ferry; on the island leave undisturbed sprawling dunes, a heavenly beach and the stunning expanse of the Atlantic to enjoy.

In addition to the lagoon, the bar is a popular Farol point, the sun and the unique atmosphere of the Atlantic record in itself. Excellent restaurants are Casa Corvo, Cafe dos Mestres and Capri.

Further, highly recommended beaches are Ilha de Armona near Olhao, Santa Luzia and Pedras d'el Rei. The famous and beautiful city of Tavira, with its not to be despised beaches Ilha de Tavira and Cabanas is also nearby.

Tavira is anyway worth more than a trip and the house is an ideal starting point for great excursions to the idyllic Praia do Barril and the enjoyment of Cabanas de Tavira. The boat tour Formosamar offers spectacular ride through the lagoons. The Waterfall Pego do Inferno is also a popular destination.

The Algarve is well known for the variety of extraordinary and unique types of golf courses. Perfect climatic conditions, wonderfully spacious, equipped with sea view systems can golfers heart beat faster. From the Quinta do Sotavento are 7 golf courses in the immediate vicinity. Of these, 7 golf courses, the largest and best known courses Benamor, Quinta da Rei and Quinta de Cima are. The golf facilities Colina Verde and Vilamonte are right nearby. A little further away, the golf courses are near San Antonio. Castro Marim, Monte Rei and Quinta do Vale are renowned golf courses of the highest class.

But the secret, actual attractiveness of the Algarve is the diverse and rich bird life. About 300 species either the region are native or do in the Algarve stopover on their migration to or from Africa. With an average of 300 sunny days a year, the lush vegetation and full of flowers that are blooming vary from month to month flora and fauna a delight - not only for botanists. Pink and white almond blossom in January and a golden sea of ​​acacia, mimosa and buttercups in February are just a few examples.

For extravagant trips and bird watching nature reserves Ria Formosa and the Reserva Natural do Sapal de Castro Marim are e Vila Real de Santo António highly recommended.

Ria Formosa lagoon is a unique landscape. With the offshore islands, canals and marshes, which extend over 60km from Faro to behind Tavira, this natural park is an important stopover for migratory birds on their north-south migration and classified as a wetland of international importance since 1971.

The marsh Reserva Natural do Sapal de Castro Marim e Vila Real de Santo António is the first Naturschutzegbiet Portugal. At the mouth of the river Guadiana near Vila Real de Santo António find a variety of fish, molluscs and crustaceans ideal conditions for reproduction - now - this is truly a delicious pantry for white storks, flamingos and stilt !!!
