About the property

Very large 6 bedroom self catering villa, 5 minutes away from Praia Verde

This very large luxury villa, is suitable for up to 16 people. This villa has 6 very spacious bedrooms, 6 bathrooms (4 of which are en-suite), a big room with two sofa-beds, a games room with darts, bar and pool table, a beautiful extra large living room with a wonderful huge bay window overlooking the pool and surrounding fields. The villa is fully air-conditioned, internet, and fully fitted to accommodate large groups of people with plenty of space to do your own thing. Having a large pool, makes it ideal for those relaxing summer days. This new villa is superbly furnished and offers its visitors a very comfortable and peaceful stay. The interior is very spacious and has modern facilities for ease and comfort. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped for a self catering holiday and there are options to dine inside or 'al fresco' by the pool. At the front of the villa there is an electric gate and space for 3/4 cars and wonderful views over the river and across Spain

Athletics and Sport: Close to the villa is the I.A.A.F. 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 Monto Gordo and Vila Real de Santo António.

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.

Absolutely Beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

As I am 7 months pregnant, my partner and I wanted to have one last holiday where we can relax and forget about the world! That is exactly what this villa gave us! We were there for 2 weeks from the beginning of September. The weather was brilliant. Everything about this Villa was amazing even the location. The local amenities are no more than 5/10 minutes drive away and the beach is about the same. From start to finish, this holiday was everything we needed and we didn't want it to end! We will certainly be coming back. :-)

Excellent villa with a huge amount of space

  • 5 of 5

This was the third time we have stayed at the villa. We really cannot recommend it enough. This time round we had a group made up of 16 people (12 adults & 4 children) and there was plenty of space for everyone. The villa is within short driving distance (5-10 mins) of beautiful beaches, excellent golf courses and plenty of restaurants. It's also only an hour or so away from Albufeira and the main waterparks. The villa has always been spotless whenever we have arrived, and has lots of bedding & towels provided. Marina (the property manager) has always been very accommodating and helpful whenever we have stayed here. Overall this villa really is amazing, we cannot wait to go back again.

We had beautiful, relaxing holiday. The house is massive and the pool was wonderful. The house had everything we needed and was spotless. The area is so peaceful but there is so much to do nearby. The games room was perfect for us and a real bonus. Can't wait to stay again and we will!

An excellent property

  • 5 of 5

This is a high end property with plenty of space and in an excellent location. Marina, made us feel very welcome and provided us with the right information and assistance. The Villa is spotless, modern, comfortable and perfect for large or small groups. As a large group of athletes, this was an ideal venue for us, near to all of the essential amenities but far enough for the right level of solitude. Thanks to Marina for making this a wonderful trip

An amazing villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This villa is incredible in every way. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very roomy which meant that everyone in our group of sixteen had plenty of privacy and space (you could easily fit twenty people in this villa). All linen and towels were clean and of very good quality. The kitchen is very well equipped and like the other living areas, spotlessly clean and tidy. The pool is large and again, very clean and there are plenty of sun loungers, umbrellas and patio furniture for everyone.

The communication during booking, arrival and departure was second to none and the Manager, Marina, was incredibly helpful throughout, recommending beaches, restaurants and other places to visit. Marina was also kind enough to leave some supplies for us on our first evening. We arrived after midnight and the bottles of Sangres were much appreciated!

All in all, this is a spectacular villa in a lovely quiet area and I suspect we'll be returning in the not too distant future!

Thank you again.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding villa. It is situated in a quiet peacfull location. The back of the villa has unspoilt views of the countryside and rural life. My grandson loved to watch the goats and donkey going past. The villa is beautifully maintained. Each room has a door to a patio which I found a joy to sit on when I needed a bit of time to myself. My husband loves to cook. The kitchen is well equipt with every pot, pan, gadget and utensil he needed or was ever likely to need. The villa is managed by a lovely lady called Marina who was always ready with helpful advice and was kind enough to rescue us on one occasion when we became lost. I would sum the villa up as a hidden gem and like the rest of our party cannot wait to go again.

Car: necessary

Quinta do Sobral is situated approximately 3 km from Castro Marim, an historic town whose skyline is dominated by its castle and fortress on top of the hill. This area is mainly made up of private detached villas and is 5 mins by car from Praia Verde, a lovely beach resort. Just a short drive away are the towns of Monte Gordo (10 km) which used to be a small fishing village and over the years, has transformed itself into a colourful, friendly and very Portuguese holiday resort; Vila Real de Santo Antonio (8 km) where you can stroll through the pedestrianised town centre and have a coffee in one of the many different cafes; Cacela Velha, a quaint and historic town with its 14th century church; Tavira (20 km) famous for its many churches, its river and the Roman footbridge. Ayamonte in Spain is a 15-minute ferry ride from Vila Real de Santo Antonio, or 10 min across the bridge by car. Seville is a 90-minute drive away and well worth a visit!

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.
