About the property

O Monte is a converted Farmhouse in an impressive private estate in Alvor

O Monte is a converted farmhouse set in an impressive private estate with unbroken views of the Alvor river estuary and the Monchique hills in the background.

The villa has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and can sleep up to 6 people. It has a well equipped kitchen and an airy double reception/dining room that opens up to a terrace with typical Portuguese paving and beautiful views of the river estuary - perfect for sunset drinks and open air dining.

In the garden at the front of the villa lies a secluded and gated swimming pool, surrounded by a leafy terrace and complete with sun beds and a BBQ area - ideal for long and relaxed lunches by the pool.

The property is well suited to small families or a group of friends to share. There is wireless internet access throughout. The house is within easy reach of the lively fishing village of Alvor, beautiful beaches and numerous golf courses and tennis clubs.

Out & About: Ladeira da Nora is only 2 km from the busy fishing village of Alvor with its fun restaurants and bars. Praia da Rocha, the well known resort with beaches, hotels, casino and bars/restaurants is only 6 km away. The historic town of Lagos is 15 minutes drive and offers good restaurants and great nightlife.

There are many golf courses, beaches, scuba diving, surfing, jet skiing, windsurfing & kite surfing, riding, fishing, cycling, sailing, to mention but a few and when the kids have tried of all these there are still water parks, jeep safaris and Zoo marine world. For those seeking other challenges, skydiving is an active sport at Alvor aerodrome at certain times of the year. Additionally, there is the racing track 15 minutes away in Mexilhoeira that hosts Formula 1 Motor Racing, Super bike and Go Karting.

Only 20 km away is the mountain of Monchique with its Spa and thermal water, where you can enjoy a fantastic view in a cooler mountain climate while enjoying the famous piri-piri grilled chicken or regional almond cake.

On hand there are a number of companies providing catering and entertainment services for special days such as weddings and anniversaries.

Golf: Those who enjoy a round of golf have easy access to Alto Club (5 km), Meridian Penina (4 km) both designed by the grandfather of courses Henry Cotton. A little farther afield, Palmares at Meia Praia, Boavista at Lagos and Gramacho at Carvoeiro are only four amongst thirty courses throughout the Algarve.

Great villa

  • 4 of 5

Lovely villa and friendly owner. Spacious and clean. Good facilities and close enough to Alvor to stroll into town on an evening for excellent food. Nice place to chill out and relax. Look forward to returning in the future.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this farmhouse villa, as soon as we walked in the door, we felt at home. Quiet, but only a 30 minute walk into Alvor, ideal for people wanting their 'own space' during the day. Great downstairs ensuite main bedroom, with 2 more bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. Sitting areas at the front and rear of the villa as well as the area by the pool, which is very sheltered. The owner was around every morning and cleaned the area by the pool as well as the pool itself and was always working maintaining the farm. Look forward to returning in 2014.

Das Haus ist super ausgestattet, sauber und hat eine seht schöne Lage mit Blick auf das Monchique Gebirge und die Flussmündung des Ria Alvor. Ein sehr schöner Pool , Terrasse vor und hinter dem Haus runden die Sache ab. Der Kontakt zum Vermieter ist unkompliziert und sehr herzlich. Wir werden wieder kommen.

What a lovely holiday we had at Villa O Monte

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful holiday we had at Villa O Monte in Algarve!!!

When we arrived in the evening after closing time of the shops, the friendly owner Jim had filled our refrigerator with some water, bread and other things to eat. Very friendly!!

The house is beautiful, clean and is situated on a lovely place, overseeing Alvor and the sea. The swimming pool is clean and very nice.

We had a wonderful holiday, loved to go back and I will hereby recommend Villa O Monte to everyone.
