SEA VIEW TWO BEDROOM APARTMENT WITH A LARGE, PRIVATE TERRACE

Monte Dourado Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms sleeps 4 with air conditioning, pools, beach & village

The apartment is in a secluded area, close to pools which have plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. We have sea views from the kitchen, living and dining rooms, master bedroom and of course from the large terrace. There are two spacious bedrooms, one with a new en-suite bathroom with a bath and separate shower, and a second new bathroom with large walk in shower. The kitchen is modern, comes fully equipped (right down to herbs & spices), has a large separate fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. Air conditioning is available. The lounge has comfortable seating, a flat screen T.V. and DVDs. Our apartment has free WiFi internet. Maid service is provided daily (Monday to Friday), towels are changed on Monday & Thursday and sheets once a week. Pool towels are provided.

The terrace has two sun beds, a bistro table with swivel bar stools and a table for alfresco dining. There is other seating as well and a covered area where you can find some shade.

Our terrace is very private and there is plenty of space for everyone to spread out and relax. It is a lovely spot to sit and enjoy Al fresco dining. We are the only apartment in the resort to have extended and doubled the size of our terrace.

Life doesn't get much better than relaxing on the terrace with a glass of wine and watching the ocean and spectacular sun sets.

Other Information: Monte Dourado Reception staff are very helpful and are available seven days a week and will assist you with bookings for trips, airport transfers and any other information you need. There are also baby cots and high chairs available upon request.

This is our second home - we escape the snow in Toronto and stay at Monte Dourado from January until the end of April.

We have made our apartment comfortable not only for us but also for you, our guests. We two sets of new sofa and chair covers, so that they will always be fresh and clean. Feedback from guests has been very positive - people say that they have really relaxed and enjoyed staying here. Please see the reviews at the bottom of our web page.

We were born in England but live in Canada, and before we purchased our second home we stayed at Monte Dourado for several years during the winter months We loved the resort, location and being just a few minutes walk from Carvoeiro and decided to purchase an apartment so that we could escape from the cold weather.

Penny Dobson purchased this apartment in 2007

The views of the sea and cliffs, the quiet location where we have expanded our terrace raised the side walls for privacy. Yet we are very close to the largest pool area where there are plenty of sun beds and umbrellas. We cannot say enough about the excellent management service we receive from Monte Dourado resort staff, and our wonderful maid Fernanda who takes such great care of our apartment and our guests.

We chose our home because of the views from the living room, master bedroom and kitchen. Also because we have a very private and spacious terrace.

A real home from home experience

The apartment is beautifully clean, spacious and is in a fantastic location with amazing views across the town of Carvoeiro and out to sea. It had everything we needed from washing up liquid to coffee - the welcome bottle of wine is a lovely touch from Penny and Brian.We particularly enjoyed eating our breakfast on the terrace every morning. Reception staff are incredibly helpful and the pool always had sunbeds available - a joy! We visited many nearby beaches including Marinha, Caneiros and Alvor, aswell as a trip to Ferragudo, Portimao, Silves and the obligatory trip to Slide and Splash - a must if you have children! Would absolutely recommend to family and friends, although reluctant, because I don't want it to be booked up!!!!
Owner's Response: Thank you Andrea so very much for your lovely review! It is really important to us that guests feel a warm welcome when they stay in our second home. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed yourselves there as much as we do, and we certainly hope that you and your family choose to return.

Beautiful Apartment

  • Submitted: Jun 4, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
We very much enjoyed our stay at your apartment in Carvoeiro. We have stayed at Monte Dourado many time before but this was the first time in your apartment. We enjoyed it very much, and found it the best furnished and decorated apartment of all the 5 or 6 we have stayed in. The apartment really is beautiful and we can’t think of a single negative point. It’s sometimes the additional little touches that make all the difference, such as wine and water on arrival (thanks very much) but also simple things like the washing up liquid, dishwater tablets etc. In every other apartment we have had to purchase many of these items on the first day which is a pain.

We very much look forward to staying in your apartment again.

A fabulous family holiday!

We (me, my husband and two boys aged 13 and 10) have just had the most fantastic holiday staying at this beautiful, well- maintained, well-equipped and spotlessly clean apartment. The view from the patio, where we ate our breakfast every morning, was stunning. The staff at Reception were lovely and so helpful; organising an airport transfer taxi for us, booking us a taxi for Slide and Splash, supplying a bus timetable for days out, getting us a starter pack of groceries for when we arrived and even keeping the tennis courts open late so we could play in the evening shade! There are several pools very close to the apartment and they were always clean and never too busy. We could always get sunloungers for the 4 of us. The town of Carvoeiro itself is a real gem and is just a short walk down the hill. We discovered many wonderful restaurants and need to go back again to continue working our way through them all! The evening entertainment is all free as there is usually live music on the stage just next to the beach. All in all it was a great holiday and we shall certainly be returning in the future.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your first stay in our apartment, and your comments about the staff at Reception are so true. The staff there are one of the many reasons why we purchased our second home at Monte Dourado. Like you we really enjoy the little town of Carvoeiro, and still have not managed to work our way through all the restaurants ourselves!

This apartment is excellent, very well equipped with everything you could possibly need on holiday. The owners were a pleasure to deal with in arranging our holiday and bottle of wine from them on arrival was a lovely personal touch. The apartment is cleaned daily to a high standard. It has a beautiful terrace with a sea view, perfect for relaxing. Monte Dourado complex is also excellent, reception staff very helpful and good amenities on site. We particularly enjoyed the tennis courts!
Carvoeiro is delightful, very clean and friendly. Food excellent everywhere we ate. We visited Slide & Splash and some of the nearby towns as well.
Very highly recommended! Definitely planning to return next year!

We had a lovely stay at this apartment in Monte Dourado. The apartment is so well -appointed and equipped, we never felt we were missing any home comforts. The apartment is also kept immaculately clean, so you get a hotel feel with all the benefits of self-catering.

The complex itself is also very clean and tidy and the receptionists were helpful and friendly. It was easy to book tennis at short notice, but you can save some money by packing your own tennis rackets.

The owner's gift of a bottle of wine was a lovely welcome and recommendations for car hire (Travelrent) and restaurants were also very useful. Casa Algarvia was a favourite for dinner and Cafe Fino for breakfast, smoothies and cocktails. They also have free wi-fi which is very handy if you have teenagers.

Carvoeiro itself is very pretty, clean and unspoilt. It is quite hilly but it only takes a few minutes from the apartment to town (down some steps close to the apartment which we discovered half-way through our holiday) so we didn't find that was a problem at all.

We visited the mountains and had home-made 'piri-piri' chicken at one of the many restaurants with outstanding views. Ferraguda is a lovely village not far away & there is a beautiful beach on the way (Caneiros). We also had a lovely day at a nearby water park 'Slide and Splash'. There is also an 'Aqualand' but that is quite a bit further away and we felt it was better to have such a short journey 'home' after a tiring day. Portimao was worth a visit for the restaurants competing to offer the best value and most generous portion of grilled fresh sardines!

We hope to return to Carvoeiro and would choose to stay in this apartment again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind comments and we are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. Having such positive feedback from our guests is all we could ever ask for. It sounds as if you managed to see quite a lot of the surrounding areas which are all very different and special. We also hope that you and your family will be able to visit again soon.

Monte Dourado is in a very special location, above the village of Carvoeiro which has a lovely beach nestled between the cliffs. The coastline in this area is spectacular since there are wonderful cliff walks and sandy cove beaches. In the village there are shops, as well as many good cafes, restaurants and bars. It is about 20 minutes to Algarve Shopping and to Zoo Marine and a little less to the Portimao shopping centre. The resort has tennis courts and there are several golf courses close by, Vale de Milho is an attractive 9 hole course, or Vale da Pinta and Quinta do Gramacho each with 18 holes, and all within a ten minute drive. The Slide and Splash water park is also a ten minute drive away. It takes five minutes to walk down the hill into town and somewhat longer to walk back up after dinner and some wine! The nice thing is that you do not need to drive when you go out to eat.
