About the property

Luxury, Self catering four bed, three bath new house with pool, close to beach

Registo nº 44651/AL Lovely 4 bedroom house with outdoor pool, situated in the urbanization of Audiencia, next to Praia Verde, in the unspoilt East Algarve, 15km from Tavira and 8km from Vila Real de Santo Antonio. Set among pine trees and close to all amenities the house is five minutes walk (350 metres) from the superb sandy beach and two restaurants and a cafe/bar. The house is within a few minutes drive of five superb golf courses, including the new Jack Nicklaus, Monte Rei course, and backs onto a national reserve of pine trees. The house laid out over three floors with terraces overlooking the swimming pool. In addition it boasts a roof terrace with views over the national park and towards the sea, and is luxuriously furnished throughout its four bedrooms, large living room and dining area, together with a large luxuriously appointed open plan kitchen. The house is air conditioned and is luxuriously furnished. It sleeps eight in the four bedrooms, plus a further two on pull out beds.

The beautiful Ria Formosa!: The Ria Formosa in the Algarve is a beautiful labyrinth of lagoons separated from the sea by a coastal dune system which is broken up by various natural inlets. It is one of the most important nature reserves in the network of wetlands that links Europe and sub-Saharan Africa. The Ria has an enormous variety of natural habitats that provide refuge, feeding and breeding areas for an infinite number of flora and fauna and is a haven for birds.

The beaches of the isles of Faro, Barreta, Culatra, Armona and Tavira form a natural barrier to the Ocean. Behind are the dunes, sometimes just a narrow strip and sometimes wider and then come the labyrinth of lagoons and small sand islands and channels. At low tide other salty habitats are uncovered forming marches and salt marshes.

The East Algarve boasts the wonderful Monte Rei course, designed by Nicklaus, Quinta do Vale course designed by Ballesteros,by the river Guardiana, as well as QUinta da Cima, Ria, Benamor and Castro Marim.

Athletes and sportsmen note!: Near the house is the renowned Vila Real de Santo Antonio Sports Complex,one of the most highly regarded centres in Europe. The complex is a high performance training centre accredited by the IAAF and is recognised by the Portuguese Olympic Committee as an Official Training Centre.The mild climate of the Algarve, combined with the natural surroundings of pine forest and beach, is conducive to improved performance by athletes.

Brilliant

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property for a quiet relaxing holiday for the whole family. Went with 4 adults and 5 children plenty for the kids with pool and beach close by. Would recommend as owners extremely helpful when kettle broke and WiFi didn't work.

Thanks again for a lovely time.

Excellent holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Booking on-line was straightforward and trouble free, communication with the managers was reassuringly prompt and efficient. The decsription of the villa was accurate and helpful although the listing did not really reflect how spacious and well appointed the villa was in reality. Villa and pool were very clean and well equipped, we received clear directions on arrival, found the villa and gained access with no problem.

Support from manager was excellent although we had very little need to contact them during our 2 week stay. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa, and Andrew and Else who manage it, to family and friends

Monte Gordo is lovely - quieter than many european beach resorts and a strong Portuguese flavour which adds to the charm. Some excellent restaurants nearby together with smaller basic beach cafes all of which are excellent value. There was enough to do in Monte Gordo and nearby Villa Real to keep a family of 5 including 3 young adults interested and entertained. One tip would be to hire bikes- a 10 minute cycle on dedicated flat cycle tracks gets you into town from Audencia and is much easier and more enjoyable than driving.

We definately plan to return

In one word ...... Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here with 4 adults 5 kids and an baby. The communication prior to the holiday went very smoothly and the managers usually replied our emails within a few hours after sending them. On arrival everything was clear and arranged to get into the house without any delays. The house is very complete, clean and well taken care of. You will find anything you need for a pleasant stay. Be sure too read the information the owners and managers have written over time. Here you will find the best restaurants and supermarkets in the neighborhood The property is very nice located just outside the main town and close to the beach, forest and the road too nearby villages. We would like to thank Andrew and his wife for making our holiday as pleasant as possible. We surely will come back.

Moradia com muito boas condições e em ótimo estado

  • 5 of 5

Passámos recentemente umas ótimas férias nesta moradia. Grupo de 5 adultos, 2 jovens e 4 crianças. O quarto do andar de baixo é realmente espaçoso para 4 crianças (ou mesmo 2 crianças e 2 adultos). Uma das crianças era pequena, e ficou bem acomodada numa cama de viagem, com espaço mais que suficiente na suite do 1º andar.

Ar condicionado em ótimas condições, mosquiteiros nas janelas (não se tratou de um período de mosquitos, mas é sempre útil) e, embora a descrição não mencione a máquina de lavar louça, esta existia. De resto, a cozinha estava especialmente bem equipada.

No geral, a casa é obviamente alvo de atenção e manutenção cuidadas.

A piscina é relativamente pequena, mas boa para crianças. A mesa exterior era pequena para o nosso grupo, pelo que fizemos as refeições dentro de casa. O muro no jardim podia ser mais alto para garantir maior privacidade - tivemos de encontrar uma solução provisória durante o período de estadia. Mas o Andrew e a Else já estão sensíveis para o problema e disseram-me que o resolverão em breve. Não tenho dúvidas que o farão: fiquei extremamente bem impressionado com a sua simpatia, atenção e disponibilidade (não intrusiva, como convém).

Distância à praia: pequena, dados os 'atalhos' existentes na urbanização. Nunca necessitámos utilizar carro.

Zona agradável, sem confusão em excesso - a diferença para Montegordo é radical - com um bom café/supermercado, e áreas verdes ótimas para corridas no pinhal ou passeios de bicicleta.

Em suma: excelente moradia para férias de praia. Todos gostaram imenso.

Casa de Audiencia ia an exclusive village of around 250 large villa and houses, situated between the towns of Altura and Monte Gordo, and next to the well known Praia Verde Condominium. The area boasts two superb restaurants on the beach itself, and a cafe/bar. In addition, there is a local shop, bakery and patisserie that sells all the basics, plus some superb Portuguese pastries! The beach is 4 minutes walk from the villa, through pine trees,and the beautiful unspoilt sandy beach stretches for miles, Nearby is the Rio Formosa, a nature reserve stretching 67 kilometres along the coast to Faro. The urbanisation 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 house is within five minutes drive of several top golf courses, including the newly opened Jack Nicklaus course at Monte Rei and the Ballesteros course at Quinta do Vale.
