Monte Gordo Villa Rental Photos and Description
4 bedroom self catering villa, situated between Monte Gordo and Altura
This charming 4 bedroom villa, boasts an outdoor jacuzzi, ideal for those hot summer days and nights! It has a good sized living room and dining area, which opens out onto the BBQ area. It has a fully equipped kitchen, is fully air conditioned and has internet. The villa is ideally situated between Monte Gordo and Altura. Just close enough to all the local night life but just far enough away to avoid the summer crowds! The villa is located in the exclusive Audiência development, next to Praia Verde, in the unspoilt Eastern Algarve. This area is mainly made up of private villas and has direct access to the beach. Whether you are a beach lover, golfer, athlete or you just want to relax with a glass of the local wine in the jacuzzi, this is the place to be. Towards the beach there is a nature reserve, which is a beautiful walk or bike ride into the town of Monte Gordo, and is a favourite of birdwatchers. The sports facilities in Vila Real Santo António are regularly used by training athletes throughout the year.
Athletics and Sport: Close to the villa is the IAAF accredited sports complex of Vila Real de S. António. The complex is equipped with modern facilities that attract top athletes to this region. There is an 8 lane 'polytan' track together with indoor training facilities and a gym with Olympic free weights. Jumping facilities and dedicated throwing facilities are also available, where many other sports are catered for. The Complex is one of the most highly regarded centres in Europe. It is a high performance training centre recognized by the Portuguese Olympic Committee as an Official Training Centre, that attracts a number of professional teams and national squads to the region for warm weather training
Monte Gordo is an established holiday resort with a flat blue flag beach, stretching over 20km. This is ideal for warm weather training sessions. There are over 12km of off road tracks that can be found in the pine forests that lie between Vila Real de Santo António and Monte Gordo.
Ria Formosa Natural Reserve: The vast beaches and isles from Faro to Tavira form a natural barrier to the Ocean. Behind are the vast expanses of dunes and after those a labyrinth of lagoons and small sand isles, mud flats and canals. At low tide other salty habitats are uncovered, because the sea penetrates right up to land, forming marches and salt marshes
With such physical diversity, it is not surprising that the Ria Formosa Estuary attracts such a variety of life forms and provides a wintering ground for many migratory birds. It is one of the most important nature reserves in the network of wetlands that links Europe and sub-Saharan Africa and is very popular with wildlife watchers from all over the world

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Marina and Mike,
My family and I would like to thank you both for the wonderful week we have spent at your lovely villa. The villa is well equipped, very clean and comfortable and as you say on the site, close enough to everything but far enough away from the crowds. The area is also very quiet and the tennis courts kept my children busy for hours! The weather was great and the fantastic beach was all ours. The walking distance to the beach and to Monte Gordo was brilliant as we did not want to drive most of the time! Renting the bikes was also a plus as we rode through the woods into Monte Gordo and Vila Real. Marina and Mike thank you very much for being such good hosts and for making our holiday unforgettable. Hope to see you soon.
