About the property

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.

For reviews on this property please see the Owners section, below, under "Guestbook comments".

If this property is unavailable for your dates, please have a look at our other property P8470604, Jasmin 92, also in Monte Dourado.

The friendly Reception staff can arrange the Tennis Court bookings and also book excursions for you.

5 communal swimming pool areas in the complex (one is heated in winter), each area has a separate childrens pool. All have Sun beds and umbrellas.

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


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

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a really enjoyable stay in the apartment during the October half-term break.

The location is ideal - there's a pool right outside the back door, the beach is about 8 minutes down the hill and there's a whole street of restaurants within a 5 minute walk.

The apartment itself was really nicely decorated, well-equipped and very comfortable with plenty of space for our family of four. The owners live fairly nearby and there were lots of little touches that made us feel very welcome.

As a parent not looking forward to going home with suitcases full of washing, it was really useful to have a machine in the apartment. It was definitely a 'home-from-home'!

The beach was great, and fairly quiet when we visited. The town has most things you need day to day and there's a lot to do in the surrounding area. We had some fun trips out, although also enjoyed just staying locally and playing on the beach.
