Moncarapacho Villa Rental Photos and Description
Villa ‚Porta del Sol’ is a spacious detached villa in the country. The next house is about 200 meters away. The Villa lies in the East Algarve away from the many tourists of the West Algarve, 1.5 km away from the village of Moncarapacho which has several Restaurants and shops. 15 km to the West is the town of Olhão and 15km to the east is Tavira. The international Airport is in the capital Faro which is reached by motorway in about 25 minutes. 40 km east is the Spanish boarder. 1 – 2 day trips to Andalusien (Sevilla, Gordoba, Malaga), Lissabon or Cabo de São Vincente are also possible. The house has a large Patio, partly covered which is superb for watching the sunset and gives the possibility to lie in the sun or shade. There are many fruit trees (oranges, figs, lemons) and olive trees in the 4000 m² grounds.
Cheap for family's: The rental price compared to other villas with large pools is very cheap. We build an nice pool with jacuzzi (4,5m x 9.6m) in Mai 2010. The house is recommended for families with children.
Quiet natural area: It is no longer permitted to build in the area, this means that you will be away from the tourist noise for your stay. The house has a large terrace area, partly covered, which is superb for watching sunsets or for lying in the sun or shade. The beaches in this part of the Algarve are mainly used by locals, there are even islands where one can be almost alone. There are many Golf Clubs in the area with great greens e.g. Vila Monte Resort (ehemals Adolfo da Quinta), which lies behind our local mountain Serro de Cabeça, simply drive passed the house to reach the course.
Trips in Portugal and to spain: In 15 minutes by car one can reach Olhão, where there are 2 large modern Market halls, 1 for fruit, vegetables and meat the other for fish and seafood, that can be heartily recommended. Large shopping centres, small shops and boutiques are very inviting for a shopping trip. In Olhão harbour there are ferries to the islands. Day trips with the car for instance Cabo São Vincente (end of the earth in old Europe), Monchique mountains, you can drive along the cliff coasts of western Algarve or even to Lissabon. The 40 km drive to Spain (Andalusia) takes about 40 minutes, travelling through small coastal towns on both sides of the boarder. It takes just 2 hours to drive to Seville and 4 hours to Gordoba or Malaga. For something different it’s worth taking a trip to the Huelva Province. The National Park Donana and the nature reserves Isla de En medio, Laguna El Portil and Marisma de El Burro are also worth visiting for nature lovers.
