About Sharon Beddall
Tim, Sharon & Holly Beddall
Sharon Beddall purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Sharon Beddall chose Caliços
An outstanding location with everything you need within easy reach. Our search for the ideal location to build Monte Calicos took us many years after deciding upon the general area of Moncarapacho, a charming throwback in time. This area is not a typically touristic destination at all, it is primarily a farming area that happens to have been stumbled upon by those of us who have been lucky enough to stumble in the right direction. A small town with a couple of banks, small supermarkets, chemist, five or six good local restaurants and even a local taxi service with a fixed rate.
What makes this Villa unique
Our guests appreciate the peace and quiet, privacy,outstanding location, stunning pool and top class accommodation that we provide and continue to upgrade as time goes on. Watch the video below

Superb villa and pool
We stayed for a fortnight and enjoyed every minute; the quality of the villa, the helpfulness of the owners, the warm and inviting swimming pool, the views and surroundings etc. Furthermore the villa is in a good location with easy access to the surrounding area and to Spain, but is in a nice, peaceful area. What more could you ask!
Wonderful home our stay was fabulous
Very nice villa with excellent swimming pool.
Sharon and Tim have created a beautiful place. We used the swimming pool even with lesser weather (the pool is heated). The villa is situated in a way that you have good privacy. Moncarapacho is a nice village with a lot of restaurants. The first thing you see when going there by foot (nice walk) is a bakery with excellent coffee and fresh bread)
We stayed there end of april 10 nights with my parents and my brother and his girlfriend. The weather variated from windy or cloudy towards excellent (sunny and hardly any wind).
Childern liked the pool the most. We recommand however to go to the nearby beaches and to Olhao.
Only improvement for us large Dutch are the relatively small beds (my father and brother are 2 meters)
Amazing villa in a stunning location!
We had such a fantastic fortnight in this beautiful villa. It was so well designed and equipped to a high standard - clean, comfortable and had everything we could hope for. Sharon and Tim were friendly and welcoming and so helpful. We all enjoyed the pool and the grounds - great bbq and lovely walks. The town is great and we enjoyed visiting a few of the beaches in the surrounding area. We would definitely return - it's a really special villa in a lovely part of the world.
Wonderful Monte Calicos
Can't say enough about this villa! It is peaceful, relaxing and just luxurious in every way! We were two families and it was ideal for us all as the villa has two separate wings on either side of the large communal kitchen/ lounge and dining room. So in the mornings we did not disturb each other. Each room has sliding doors onto the vernada which leads onto the pool area. As we went in early April we took advantage of the log burner in the evenings which made the villa lovely and cosy. We hit a heat wave after a few days so it was not used again, the grand barbeque was used to the max and we loved cooking all our fresh produce from the local markets and the meat a fish was soooooo cheap! The little town is quiet and untouched - it is a local's town and the prices of alcohol, food and the restaurants reflect that! We plan to return next May and can not wait! Thank you Sharon and Tim - it was a memory we'll share for a very long time! xx
