PEACEFUL, NOT ISOLATED, HILLSIDE COUNTRY VILLA , POOL, STUNNING VIEWS

Sao Bras de Alportel region Villa Rental Photos and Description

1 double and 2 twin bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 1 shower room. Sleeps max 6

Monte das Pedras is a privately owned house situated in one acre of south facing hillside with panoramic views of the valley and village of Gorjöes beyond. The tranquil natural rock garden setting makes for an ideal 'get away from it all' holiday.

Good shopping and restaurants are all within 6 kilometres.

Extensive terracotta terraces surround the house and 9X6.5m private pool (which can be heated) with sun-loungers, furniture and barbecue for al fresco dining. A roof terrace is ideal for sun-tanning or a cool evening place to view the Mediterranean sunsets and night sky. Shade is provided by covered terraces.

The house is furnished in local pine with comfortable settees, an open fire for cooler evenings and air conditioning for when hot. French windows open onto the breakfast terrace with extensive views south across the olive groves

Suitability:
  • non smoking only

PEACEFUL VILLA WITH GREAT POOL

  • 4 of 5
If you're looking for a quiet villa in the countryside but close to the beaches and towns of the Algarve, this is a good place to stay! There is a large pool which is great for cooling off and for children to play in. The house is cleaned twice a week and the pool and garden are well maintained, which makes you feel very well looked after. It's only half an hour to an hour's drive to the great beaches and sights of the Algarve. Even the beautiful and rugged west coast is only just more than an hour away. So there are lots of possibilities to explore. And it was very enjoyable not to have the children complaining from the back seat that it took forever to get to our destination!

PERFECT PEACE

  • 5 of 5
I can heartily recommend this villa, it is beautifully sited on a hillside looking south over lush countryside. It is quiet and not overlooked. There is plenty of outdoor space to spread out in, including a sizzling roof terrace. The pool is lovely and plenty big enough.
Indoors everything was just so, very well equipped, lots of up to date paperbacks left by considerate previous guests.
Loule is a rather smart town just 10 minutes away with the well known market of course but also the rather impressive Continente supermarket with all that you could possibly want for your stay.
Finally I would say, for all you get, Monte das Pedras is very good value indeed

FANTASTIC VILLA IN QUIET LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This is a very peaceful villa situated on a hillside. It was ideal for our kids, 3 and 9, who could really let loose in the pool, which was large and set on a terrace with amazing views. The pool house was full of toys for them to play with. The villa itself was well equipped with lots of books, dvds, games and useful information on the surrounding area. It was well managed and our stay went smoothly with help on hand if needed. We stayed during the first week of Sept and it was sunny every day with temperatures in the low 30's. This was a great setting for a family holiday, we took away many happy memories.

RELAXING HOLIDAY VILLA

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for only a week at the villa in September 2011, and wish we had stayed for longer.
The villa is very private, yet has good access to local towns, particularly Loule, and is a short drive to a major supermarket, which we found very useful. Although there are numerous restaurants within easy reach, we preferred to cook and eat at the villa, as the kitchen was so well equipped, not something you usually find in a holiday rental, and the various patios around the house were lovely for al fresco eating.
The property is maintained to a high standard throughout, and is spacious. Although there were only the two of us, the property would really suit a young family. All the rooms are spacious, the pool is lovely, and the garden and outside areas can be explored and enjoyed by all.
Getting from Faro airport was easy, the directions provided were really clear. The only thing we would do differently would be to accept Angela's kind offer to sort the car hire for us - the firm recommended by Jet2 were not very good!
All in all, a lovely holiday at a great location. We very much hope to return and would highly recommend Monte das Pedras.

EEN PRACHTIG PLEKJE

  • 4 of 5
Een geweldige plek om met vrienden vakantie te vieren. Het huis is geschikt voor 6 personen, maar dan misschien wat vol. Hoewel, je bent meestal buiten. Prachtig uitzicht, alleen de weg er naar toe vergt wat stuurmanskunst. Heerlijke bedden en de keuken voorzien van alle gemakken. Mooi zwembad, een paar fijne terrassen en een allervriendelijkste buurhond, die af en toe even aan komt rennen (schoenen binnen zetten!). Zeker een plek om naar terug te keren.

FANTASTIC VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
A really comfortable villa with everything you need. A great pool and two excellent patio areas which make al-fresco dining a must. However, the star of the show is the villa's location. Set up in the hills with superb panoramic views for miles around. Almost totally isolated with no one nearby it makes the villa the perfect place for just getting away and relaxing. A cool dip in the pool, an even cooler drink on the patio and just watch the world go by in perfect peace and quiet.

Plenty of good restaurants are nearby and excellent local beaches are only a 25 minute car ride away.

All in all Monte is the perfect place for a relaxing, get-away holiday. Thoroughly recommended.

Monte das Pedras is situated down a quiet non-tarmaced lane in beautiful countryside 20 minutes drive from Faro Airport, mid-way between Loulé and São Bras de Alportel. Set in one acre of hillside it has no neighbouring properties within view. Depending on the season it offers wonderful spring flowers, spectacular sunsets and good walking and birdwatching, certainly a place to unwind. North lie the mountains and conservation areas of cork oak and eucalyptus forests and the Alentejo, whilst the Spanish border is only 45 minutes east.

It is 25 minutes from beaches and top class golf facilities at Val do Lobo and Quinta do Lago.

There are a number of small food shops and bars in nearby Gorjoes and Agostos, with a good European restaurant less that 2km away, and good supermarkets and restaurants in Loulé and São Bras de Alportel, none more than 6km away.
