VILLA SAO MIGUEL

Moncarapacho Villa Rental Photos and Description

New fantastic holiday villa. Large and luxury for large families or groups

This large villa is divided over three floors. You enter at ground level where you will find the spacious lounge with a fireplace including a large flat-screen TV with UK satellite. Here is also the control for the sound system throughout the whole villa. There is a separate dining area with a large table which seats 12 people. This dining area has access to the terrace and is adjacent to the kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped and is suitable for cooking for 12 people. On the lowest level is the games-room, the double garage and an extra bathroom The bathroom on the lowest level just has a shower and washbasin. There is a very limited amount of fitness machines, a ping-pong table and a football table. Also here is a large flat-screen TV, so ideal for kids to spend their time, (can connect play-station, etc.). Outside at the ground entry level you have a very spacious terrace with stairs (can be closed of so kids can’t get to the pool), leading to the large pool with Roman-steps with around 5 X 12. There is also a separate jacuzzi/spa adjacent to the pool.

Local activities in and around Moncarapacho: The Eastern Algarve has to offer miles of golden sand beaches offering the best in Portugal with the warmest water and still unspoiled by mass tourism. It is one of the sunniest place in Europe with over 3000 hours sunshine per year. You will also find the Portuguese friendly, kind and helpful people. Portugal is a safe place with no health or security risks.

From the Moncarapacho/ Olhao/ Estoi area you can enjoy wonderful unspoiled countryside and fantastic beaches including beach islands some within 15 min drive.

Why not try some of the Eastern Algarve golf courses many within 10-25 min of the villa. Championship courses like Cima, Castro Marim, Benamor, Ria and also a 9 hole par 3 just outside Moncarapacho at Colina Verde. There are an additional 5 more courses 20/25 min away in Ayamonte on Spanish border.

Moncarapacho is just 5 min away by car with shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, petrol station, internet café, pharmacy, doctors, dentist, banks, churches and museums.

The villa is within easy distance of Tavira – regarded as the loveliest town in the Algarve with the 4th best beach in Europe.

Also only 10 min drive to Olhao with shopping, markets and some of the finest fish restaurants in the area. Pronounced ‘ol-ee-ow’, Olhao is a busy modern town with a gem of a waterfront. Its fishing port is the most important in the eastern Algarve and its fish market is the biggest. It also has many shops, restaurants and an entire summer festival devoted to sea food. Ameijoas – the king of clams is both grown and eaten in abundance and is a ‘must-try’ entrée, as are conquilas.

Olhao is very Portuguese, very Algarvian and very UN-touristic. The pedestrian shopping area winds in cobbled streets through the Moorish-looking old town to the waterfront with its markets (fruit, veg, meat, deli as well as fish), its cafes, parks and sparkling views out over the Ria Formosa lagoons.

From the pier, you can take boats or a water taxi to the island villages and beaches of Armona, Culatra and Farol – all great beaches and great day trips taking only 5 to 10 min to reach. The official visitor centre for the Ria Formosa nature reserve is just outside Olhao. Its worth a visit to see: the restored tidal mill (of which there were once many in the Ria Formosa), the bird life, and the chance to spot the very rare symbol of the park, the Purple Galinule.

For the Sea Food festival in August, half of the water front gardens are closed off and turned into a massive gastronomic and entertainment delight. The sea food is plentiful and excellent, the entertainment is top class and the organisation great. It’s a hugely popular event and deservedly so. Don’t miss it if you are here at the time. The area is ideal for all sorts of sports including fishing, golf, tennis, horse riding, walking, bird watching, beach or lake side relaxation, swimming with dolphins or even a winter sun.

An excellent, comfortable house with lovely pool and excellent barbecue. We enjoyed playing on the tennis court even though it was small. A great area for a holiday, within easy reach of Faro airport. The beaches on the islands were beautiful with lovely swimming. Tavira is a lovely town. Olhao is interesting with wonderful markets - especially the fish market which is amazing. Lovely seafood - we recommend "O Livramento" on the front which has lovely, very reasonable food and is very friendly. Some of our party went a few times to Sagres to surf (only an hour and a half's drive). Others went downhill biking and road biking. We all visited Seville- beautiful! - less than two hour's drive. All in all an excellent location for a restful holiday. (An information pack at the villa would be useful.)

A 10 minute drive will bring you to the coastal town of Fuzeta, lying within the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve. There is a small beach on the lagoon in the town itself. Take the small ferry across the lagoon (five minutes) and you reach the miles and miles of sand, sun and sea of Isla de Armona. There is a restaurant and facilities where you land. The beach has white sand, clean warm water, and is backed by dunes - one of the very best in Europe. Most of the beach is empty even in peak season.

The nearest town is Moncarapacho (2 minutes drive), a charming small town with all the basics: 2 good small supermarkets, market, restaurants, bank, fuel, post office, newspapers and plenty of café’s. The large coastal town of Olhão is 20 minutes drive away - a paradise for lovers of fish and sea food. Tavira - the cultural and historic town at the centre of the Eastern Algarve - is also just 20 minutes drive away.
