Loule Town 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. Whilst secluded, it is ideally situated between the towns of São Bras de Alportel (a typical Algarvian town) and the well-known market town of Loulé. 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. Wifi is available

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bonjour, suite à notre séjour à Monte Das Pedras avec la famille Xxxxxxx du 29 juillet au 12 aôut 2015, nous tenons à vous faire savoir que nous avons passé de très bonnes vacances.

La maison, la piscine, les alentours, les commerces, les restos ..... rien à dire et sans oublier John et son équipe.

De part son isolement, nous avons pu nous reposer et profiter du calme.

Nous gardons un très bon souvenir pour nos premières vacances au Portugal.

Merci encore en espérant vous recontacter bientôt.

Amazing villa Monte das Pedras

  • 5 of 5

The villa is very well equipped and there is a really nice pool area as well as a large breakfast/dining terrace. In Loulé and Sao Bras (ca. 5-6 km) you can find both the supermarkets as well as good reastaurants. In the surrounding of the villa we could listen and recognize plenty of summer birds and the swallows were showing their flying skills in nice sun shine in April 2016.

Thank you Angela for all, we are pleased to recommend this villa to our friends!

Relaxing comfortable Paradise In The Hills

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for a relaxing stay in the hills 30 mins from Faro airport. The villa is situated in an exclusive and quiet part just east of Loules and just off the N270. The villa is in a perfect location clean and with a good layout. 3 good size bedrooms, lounge and well equipped kitchen. Space for 2-3 cars if needed. Private balcony from one of the bedrooms and a front balcony from the lounge. To the right of the villa you walk to the pool area. Good size pool with ample space for many recliners. Pretty much a good sun trap but you do get shade in the evenings making it ideal to sit out late at night for meals around the table. Property is well looked after by I guess a good service company as the pool was spotless and the inside of the villa clean and tidy. A good place to take a hire car to visit places such as Tavira and Loules and for those who still want something English the sunny sands and gift shops in Albufeira. My rating would be 9/10 not 10/10 as we only had a week and we should of stayed for two weeks. I recommend this to people that enjoy taking in the local sites and can come back to their own paradise. I for sure am booking next year and the year after. Fab place!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. So glad you enjoyed your stay and would be delighted to welcome you back again. I agree one week is really not enough to relax and enjoy the beauty of the Algarve. Angela

Nice Relaxing Break

  • 5 of 5

Monte Das Pedras is a very clean and tidy well equipped villa, Loule and San Bras with a wide range of restaurants and supermarkets are both a short drive away that's if you can be bothered to drag yourself away from the pool and the amazing views.

The villa is not over looked very private in a quiet location I would highly recommend villa if your looking for nice relaxing holiday

Thank you Angela

Peaceful, quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Very nice Villa in a very peaceful and secluded location. We arrived to well stocked fridge, and clean and tidy rooms. Perfect for a quiet relaxing time and only 30 minutes from the beach. Loule is only ten minutes away where there is a good range of shops and a large supermarket. Lovely pool, plenty of loungers and great BBQ. No Sky TV or Wifi which actually helps you relax. We will book again. Thanks

A beautiful landscape. a very pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The view of the hills is beautiful and we can guess the sea behind them. What a pleasure to hear the sound of sheep bells in the evening when they return to the fold. The villa is very comfortable and very quiet. Thank you very much Angella for all. We recommend it to our friends.

Nous avons passé un superbe séjour. La vue sur les colines est superbe, on devine la mer au loin. Quel plaisir d'entendre le bruit des cloches des moutons le soir lorsqu'ils rentrent à la bergerie. La villa est vraiment très confortable et très calme. On la recommande à nos amis.

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!

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.
