Large 5 bedroom self catering villa, situated between Monte Gordo and Altura
- english, portuguese
Born in Lisbon, I went to finish my studies in the UK where I met Mike, my husband. Ended up staying for 18 years! In 2001 we bought a villa in this area and in 2005 we decided to move south and chose to stay in the East Algarve. I have been managing villas since 2008, and I enjoy every minute of it!

GREAT LOCATION - GREAT HOUSE
This house was perfect for our three families on our first 'together' holiday. Pool and garden area proved to be a great hit and children probably would have spent all day at the villa. Bird watching at breakfast with the resident blackbirds and baby swifts was a bonus, enjoyed by all. The little grocery shop up the road was brilliant for bread and cakes and staff very friendly and helpful. Love to return to the area in the future.
Thank you for leaving us such a wonderful review. We are thrilled that you loved your holiday and the villa. So thanks for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you again in a near future. Kind regards, Marina and Mike

Thank you so much for giving us a perfect rating and for recommending our villa to other travellers. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in the Eastern Algarve and we hope your next stay is just around the corner. Kindest regards, Marina and Mike
We had a lovely stay in this villa. It accommodated all 10 of us comfortably.
The seating area was great for us all, as was the kitchen and the garden was just perfect for the children. The pool, although fresh, was great for the children to splash in.
The villa is just a few minutes from the cafe/shop/bakery.
Marina could not have done more to help us, immediately answering any questions we had via text or in person.
We had a wonderful family holiday there.
Happy 70th Birthday to your Mum! I am so delighted that you all chose to celebrate such a special occasion with us in the Algarve. We hope to have you back in the near future and take part in more of your life´s celebrations and milestones. Regards, Marina and Mike

The Villa is located in the exclusive holiday residential area of Casa da Audiencia, which has around 250 large villas and houses and direct access, on foot or by car, to the beach. It boasts two superb restaurants on the beach itself, and a sushi/salad bar. There is also a local café and bakery, where you can buy bread freshly baked on the premises. The beach is 5 minutes walk from the villa, through the pine trees, and its’ beautiful unspoilt golden sand stretches for miles. Nearby is the Ria Formosa, a nature reserve stretching 67 kilometres along the coast to Faro. Part of Audiencia backs onto a National Park, full of pine trees surrounding a beautiful unspoilt lake that is a magnet for wild birds and ducks. It is excellent for walking and cycling in. The villa is within 5 to 15 min. drive of several top golf courses: Castro Marim Golf, Quinta da Ria, Benamor, Quinta de Cima, the new Monte Rei course designed by Jack Nicklaus and Quinta do Vale designed by Seve Ballesteros
Other Activities: Bird watching, Green Bowling, Kite Surf, Canoeing, Cruising
Golf: The Algarve has some of the finest golf courses in the world. Indeed the region has a world wide reputation for golfing excellence. The mild all year round climate makes playing golf in the Algarve an absolute pleasure, even in the winter. The East Algarve has 5 very different golf courses:
Benamor - A very friendly and welcoming club. A good choice for groups of higher handicappers, with wide fairways and not too many hazards. Water does, however, come into play on a few holes.
Castro Marim - The Eastern Algarve has developed very quickly in the last few years as a serious golfing location. This is one of the first courses that got rave reviews from visiting golfers and it is still one to put on any Eastern Algarve itinerary.
Monte Rei - The only Jack Nicklaus designed course on the Algarve. This is a stunning layout, with first class service from the time you arrive at the bag drop.
Quinta da Ria - A lovely golf course built on a cliff overlooking the Ria Formosa Natural Park. Although not as technically difficult as its sister course next door, it is still ranked in the top 10 courses in Portugal.
Quinta de Cima -This is a must-play course for any golfer staying in the Algarve. Ranked as one of the top 3 courses in Portugal by the Peugeot guide.
Quinta do Vale - Opened in 2008, this Seve Ballesteros course, close to the Spanish border, is one to add to your itinerary. With Monte Rei & Quinta do Cima very close you can see why golfers are flocking to this area.
