This very large luxury villa, is suitable for up to 16 people. This villa has 6 very spacious bedrooms, 6 bathrooms (4 of which are en-suite), a big room with two sofa-beds, a games room with darts, bar and pool table, a beautiful extra large living room with a wonderful huge bay window overlooking the pool and surrounding fields. The villa is fully air-conditioned, internet, and fully fitted to accommodate large groups of people with plenty of space to do your own thing. Having a large pool, makes it ideal for those relaxing summer days. This new villa is superbly furnished and offers its visitors a very comfortable and peaceful stay. The interior is very spacious and has modern facilities for ease and comfort. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped for a self catering holiday and there are options to dine inside or 'al fresco' by the pool. At the front of the villa there is an electric gate and space for 3/4 cars and wonderful views over the river and across Spain
Athletics and Sport: Close to the villa is the I.A.A.F. accredited sports complex of Vila Real de S. António. The complex is equipped with modern facilities that attract top athletes to this region. There is an 8 lane 'polytan' track together with indoor training facilities and a gym with Olympic free weights. Jumping facilities and dedicated throwing facilities are also available, where many other sports are catered for. The Complex is one of the most highly regarded centres in Europe. It is a high performance training centre recognized by the Portuguese Olympic Committee as an Official Training Centre, that attracts a number of professional teams and national squads to the region for warm weather training.
Monte Gordo is an established holiday resort with a flat blue flag beach, stretching over 20km. This is ideal for warm weather training sessions. There are over 12km of off road tracks that can be found in the pine forests that lie between Monto Gordo and Vila Real de Santo António.
Ria Formosa Natural Reserve: The vast beaches and isles from Faro to Tavira form a natural barrier to the Ocean. Behind are the vast expanses of dunes and after those a labyrinth of lagoons and small sand isles, mud flats and canals. At low tide other salty habitats are uncovered, because the sea penetrates right up to land, forming marches and salt marshes.
With such physical diversity, it is not surprising that the Ria Formosa Estuary attracts such a variety of life forms and provides a wintering ground for many migratory birds. It is one of the most important nature reserves in the network of wetlands that links Europe and sub-Saharan Africa and is very popular with wildlife watchers from all over the world.
This is a high end property with plenty of space and in an excellent location. Marina, made us feel very welcome and provided us with the right information and assistance. The Villa is spotless, modern, comfortable and perfect for large or small groups. As a large group of athletes, this was an ideal venue for us, near to all of the essential amenities but far enough for the right level of solitude. Thanks to Marina for making this a wonderful trip
This villa is incredible in every way. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very roomy which meant that everyone in our group of sixteen had plenty of privacy and space (you could easily fit twenty people in this villa). All linen and towels were clean and of very good quality. The kitchen is very well equipped and like the other living areas, spotlessly clean and tidy. The pool is large and again, very clean and there are plenty of sun loungers, umbrellas and patio furniture for everyone.
The communication during booking, arrival and departure was second to none and the Manager, Marina, was incredibly helpful throughout, recommending beaches, restaurants and other places to visit. Marina was also kind enough to leave some supplies for us on our first evening. We arrived after midnight and the bottles of Sangres were much appreciated!
All in all, this is a spectacular villa in a lovely quiet area and I suspect we'll be returning in the not too distant future!
Thank you again.
This is an outstanding villa. It is situated in a quiet peacfull location. The back of the villa has unspoilt views of the countryside and rural life. My grandson loved to watch the goats and donkey going past. The villa is beautifully maintained. Each room has a door to a patio which I found a joy to sit on when I needed a bit of time to myself. My husband loves to cook. The kitchen is well equipt with every pot, pan, gadget and utensil he needed or was ever likely to need. The villa is managed by a lovely lady called Marina who was always ready with helpful advice and was kind enough to rescue us on one occasion when we became lost. I would sum the villa up as a hidden gem and like the rest of our party cannot wait to go again.
We were a family party of 13 and stayed at the villa for 2 weeks, as you enter the villa its exactlly as described and better, very spacious, men of the party loved the games room. Hiring cars is beneficial all though there are taxi numbers in the information book provided which were costing around 10 euros to monte gorde. The communtication with Marina (managing agent) was excellent she was quick to respond to any questions/queries and also helped with transfers to and from the airport.
I would recommend having an extra or larger fridge freezer (ie american style) in the kitchen as being a large party we couldnt fit all the food in the fridge and due to being full it wasn't keeping the food very cold.
All had a great time at the villa and i wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends family etc, didn't want to leave. Thankyou Marina and Mike
Vi and family
This villa is exceptional, as soon as you enter the hallway from the front door you are greeted by an air of comfort and luxury, stunning woodwork and polished floors and beautiful tiles... it is furnished to a very high standard and contains everything you could possibly need for a holiday .
The bedrooms are comfortable and well equipped with storage and some even have tv's. as well as their own beautifully tiled bathrooms.
There is a games room which includes a pool table and dart board along with an x box and tv. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern units incorporating a fridge freezer , microwave and oven.
Excellent swimming pool and stacks of outside space .
Local supermarkets are five to ten minutes drive away and the beaches are close by and superb for children.... I would definately recommend this villa and would love to visit again .
We stayed as a family of six for a week.
the villa is fabulous, luxurious and very spacious. there is plenty to do, alongside the gorgeous pool, there is also a large games area with pool table, darts board and tv with xbox.
the villa is situated in a small estate just a five minute drive to the local town with supermarkets, restaurants and the beach.
the beach is a beautiful sandy beach with restaurants on the sea front
I would definitely recommend this villa to others.
Quinta do Sobral is situated approximately 3 km from Castro Marim, an historic town whose skyline is dominated by its castle and fortress on top of the hill. This area is mainly made up of private detached villas and is 5 mins by car from Praia Verde, a lovely beach resort. Just a short drive away are the towns of Monte Gordo (10 km) which used to be a small fishing village and over the years, has transformed itself into a colourful, friendly and very Portuguese holiday resort; Vila Real de Santo Antonio (8 km) where you can stroll through the pedestrianised town centre and have a coffee in one of the many different cafes; Cacela Velha, a quaint and historic town with its 14th century church; Tavira (20 km) famous for its many churches, its river and the Roman footbridge. Ayamonte in Spain is a 15-minute ferry ride from Vila Real de Santo Antonio, or 10 min across the bridge by car. Seville is a 90-minute drive away and well worth a visit!
Other Activities: Bird watching, Green Bowling, Kite Surf, Canoeing, Cruising
Golf: The Algarve has some of the finest golf courses in the world. Indeed the region has a world wide reputation for golfing excellence. The mild all year round climate makes playing golf in the Algarve an absolute pleasure, even in the winter. The East Algarve has 5 very different golf courses:
Benamor - A very friendly and welcoming club. A good choice for groups of higher handicappers, with wide fairways and not too many hazards. Water does, however, come into play on a few holes
Castro Marim - The Eastern Algarve has developed very quickly in the last few years as a serious golfing location. This is one of the first courses that got rave reviews from visiting golfers and it is still one to put on any Eastern Algarve itinerary.
Monte Rei - The only Jack Nicklaus designed course on the Algarve. This is a stunning layout, with first class service from the time you arrive at the bag drop.
