About the property

Long winter lets available. Complete privacy in bright spacious accommodation, with dining veranda overlooking the views of the sea, set in grounds of about 3 acres. Nearby towns of Estoi (10 minutes), Moncarapacho (10 minutes) Olhao (15 minutes)+ Sao Bras de Alportel (10 minutes) all have banks, shops supermarkets, local outdoor markets + large range of excellent restaurants. Eastern Algarve is still unspoilt and relatively underdeveloped and offers a more relaxed atmosphere for those wishing to escape the bustle of the main tourist areas while still having access to glorious beaches frequented by the locals.

This Villa only sleeps 6 people. Lets only Saturday to Saturday, unless out of season. Very peaceful. In the middle of ...Real countryside. LONG WINTER LETS AVAILABLE.

Très belle semaine

  • 4 of 5

Une semaine entre amis dans cette jolie villa. Coupé de tout, dans un endroit calme avec une vue imprenable sur la baie de Olhao. La piscine est top, la terrasse parfaite pour les petits dej, déjeuners et dîners entre amis. La villa est très pratique et le linge de maison est changé en milieu de semaine. N'hésitez pas à louer cette maison.

Très bien

  • 5 of 5

Maison en bon état, très calme, la piscine est magnifique. Un peu a l'écart mais c'est le prix à payer pour le calme. Le voisin gère l'arrivée et le départ ainsi que le ménage et l'entretien de la maison. Il y a un terrain de boule, très sympa au global. Vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés, nous y avons passé de très bonne vacances.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed our home and the peace and quiet. It is good to get away from the noise and bussle of the Tourist Areas in the West Algarve. Being in a Local Village is much more enjoyable and you learn more about the Country and its People. Our neighbours speak very good French as they lived in Paris for 14 years. I hope you managed to play Petanque on our speacial area, it is a good way to spend the time.

Location très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans cette maison, très agréable et très bien équipée ( jeux de société , bouée et matelas gonflable), la piscine très grande a été appréciée de tous , nous avons apprécié le calme et la vue. Merci pour le kit d'arrivée qui évite les courses immédiates , merci pour le bon accueil de Costa et Fernanda, qui parlent français, c'est appréciable. Et enfin le contact par mail avec la propriétaire est facile , et a fait tomber mes premières réticences à régler la totalité de la location avant notre arrivée.

"Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à la villa Monte Rosa au mois d’août 2010. La propriété est située dans un petit village très calme. La maison et le jardin sont vraiment très beaux, la vue de la terrasse sur les collines alentour et surtout sur la mer imprenable. La piscine est grande et sa disposition en terrasse très agréable. L’habitation est très bien équipée, rien ne manque. Par ailleurs, nous avons eu des relations très agréables avec la propriétaire et avec le couple qui s’occupe sur place de la maison et qui est parfaitement francophone. C’est un lieu de vacances idéal."
