MONTE DOURADO Girrasol 25 - Alojamento Local Registered 55721/AL
New to the lettings market and ideally situated for a hassle-free and relaxing holiday. We bought it Summer 2017 and have made it into a comfortable holiday home away from home. Everything is so close, its only a few steps away from the swimming pool or a short walk (5 mins) downhill brings you to the lovely sandy beach and village with many cafés, restaurants, bars and shops.
In the light, airy and very spacious accommodation the entrance hall gives access to the whole apartment. The two bedrooms (one with king-sized bed and one with twin beds) both have fitted wardrobes and air-conditioning. The full bathroom has a shower over the bath and the shower room has recently been refitted. The new kitchen has fridge/freezer, dishwasher, ceramic hob and electric oven, microwave, toaster, kettle, juicer etc. The cupboards and drawers are full of what you would expect to find in your kitchen at home. The washing machine has its own separate cupboard.
Facing onto the sunny terrace is the large air-conditioned Lounge/Dining Room complete with table and chairs, two comfortable sofas, a well stocked book case, TV, DVD and music centre. For those chilly winter nights, a new log burner has been fitted.
Patio doors lead onto the spacious terrace, with hardwood table and chairs, overlooking the small garden area. This is an ideal place for breakfast in the sun, a relaxing day or al fresco dining in the evening. There is also a wind-out sunshade if the sun gets a little too hot!!
The apartment is in a cluster of 8 and has the benefit of being air-conditioned, to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. All windows and the patio doors are double glazed with good quality strong, lockable shutters. The patio doors have a separate sliding net door.

About Rory & Jane
Hi, we have lived on the Algarve for many years, wherever we have travelled, always returning to Carvoeiro. Jane just loves flying into Faro and seeing the Ria Formosa Estuary and the sandy islands, it gives the feeling of sunshine and relaxation immediately. We hope you will feel the same. Rory is mostly retired from his work as a freelance Management Consultant working across Europe for over 27 years. Arrived in Portimao by sailboat in 2002 Jane has worked in Tourism, travelling extensively even spending a lot of time in Australia and the Balearics. Originally making her home here in the mid 1980’s We now live across the valley from the Apartments with our two cats, who also love to travel with us, on our boat, but are not so keen on flying!!
Rory & Jane purchased this Apartment in 2017
Why Rory & Jane chose Carvoeiro
WHY WE CHOSE CARVOEIRO We love Carvoeiro for its character and its nearness to everything as well as the fact that it has none of the nasty high-rise buildings in evidence elsewhere along the coast. There are always many restaurants to choose from even in the middle of winter and the lovely sheltered beach is right there too. Weather you want to pop out for coffee, a lingering lunch, the perfect dinner or just to relax on the beach go no further than 500m - yes its all that close. We love it here and sure you will too. We bought both our apartments last year (Girassol 25 and Jasmine 92), having looked around we found that Monte Dourado has so much to offer. Right in the heart of the village, with the beach on its doorstep but still remaining peaceful and quite in itself. There is on site parking, the mature gardens are very well cared for and grounds kept in good condition, there are 5 pool areas each with a separate children's pool, sun beds and parasols. The main pool is heated in the winter months. If you are feeling energetic there are tennis courts for hire just behind the reception.
What makes this Apartment unique
Comfortable home from home, not just a ‘holiday let’. So close to beach, village, shops and restaurants. Quiet and relaxing location. Pools just a few steps away. Air conditioning (hot/cold) and wood burner for cooler evenings….. On-site free parking, a real bonus in the centre of Carvoeiro

Spacious well kept apartment
We booked this holiday rental for two main reasons, one it had a walk in shower and bearing in mind the time of year we wanted a wood burning fire: we also knew it faces the morning sun and that too was important though the balcony of the flat above somewhat overshadowed, but breakfasting on the patio was very pleasant. The apartmentment is well kitted out with a value starter pack but could have been improved with a small amount of washing up liquid and powder for the washing machine. The main bedroom was spacious with a large comfy double bed, bedside lights each side and a huge wardrobe. The aircon worked fairly well on hot though it is not enough for a cool or even cold evening, but doubtless the summer cooling effect is well received. Too cold for us to use the pool which is close, but not too close, but it was clean and well maintained with a side pool for toddlers. The sitting room was well set out with a dining area, two settees which converted to beds, a cd and dvd player and a tv which managed to receive some UK tv programmes: the wi-fi worked well. A nice place to stay and not too far from the village centre though it is downhill there which means the opposite coming home!
There are several small supermarkets close to the apartment, and excellent large ones slightly further away
