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.

A wintering ground for many migratory birds. The Estuary has an enormous variety of natural habitats and biotopes that provide refuge, feeding or breeding areas for an infinite number of organisms.

Amazing all round .

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for the wow factor then this is it .the photos honestly don't do the place justice . We arrived late on the Saturday night to be overwhelmed by how big the place was .with 3 families totaling 11 they're was ample space for us all not to have to worry about tripping over each other . Pool was beautiful the kids and ourselves got plenty of use from it at all times of day as there was plenty of shade around at the hottest part of the day .the beach was a short stroll down the road which was literally only 2 mins . We often took a walk into monte gordo through the woods which only took exactly 10 mins and 42 seconds it was that close .beautifully villa ,beautiful surroundings and of course owned by beautiful people that couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect .we will definitely be back x

Casa bem equipada, com muito boa localização.

  • 5 of 5

Tivemos uma semana de férias maravilhosa: 5 casais. A casa é muito boa e funcional em todos os aspecto: localização, electrodomésticos, utensílios de cozinha, espaço exterior de refeições, piscina, etc. Não falta nada. É um luxo ir para a praia a pé (cerca de 300 metros).

Obrigada Else e Andrew pela simpatia e disponibilidade.

Spacious, comfortable holiday accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month at this villa. Our hosts were welcoming and accommodating. The villa has everything you would need for everyday living, entertaining and holiday enjoyment. The kitchen is large and functional. Seating for twelve in the dining room and on the deck was just great.

The bedrooms are quite soundproof so was great for late nighters and early risers.

We especially enjoyed the fireplace as in March , evenings were chilly.

The pool area is sheltered and enabled us to enjoy the sun while blocking cool breezes.

We loved the tapas night arranged by Andrew. The chefs were so personable. Their company was as enjoyable as the food.

The villa is exactly as presented in the promotional pictures. The location couldn't be better for beach lovers. The beach is one of the best in the world. It's clean, wide and stretches as far as the eye can see. The beach bar close by was sweet and had the most amazing, friendly servers who continually helped us with our Portuguese.

We could walk to Monte Gordo for happy hour at the many and varied bars there.

If you want a taste of living in Portugal in an area that's not too touristy, this is your spot. There are so many day trips you can take that are within an hour or two away.

It doesn't have the many restaurants or nightlife that you'd get in Albufeira. But you can mix with the locals at the corner pub to watch football and have a bevy or two . €.50 for a glass of wine and €1.00 for a beer.

Can't beat this place.

Fantastiskt hus dit vi gärna åker igen.

  • 5 of 5

Vår pappa fyllde 75 år så vi samlade ihop hela familjen och åkte ner till Portugal (13 st). Vi mötte ett fantastiskt hus som hade allt. Vi fick 2 underbara veckor tillsammans med mycket sol, bad och härliga middagar på terrassen.

Samtliga i familjen var nöjda då det erbjöds både fantastisk strand, pool och bra golfbanor i närområdet.

Ett ställe vi gärna återvänder till.

Big family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean, well appointed & maintained villa, suited our three generations down to the ground! Loved the salt water pool! Short walk to the beautiful beach & roughly 15 minutes into Monte Gordo itself. The little cafe & supermarket , although basic, cover the daily needs & do really fresh Portuguese rolls & pastries & great omelettes! Stop & have a cold beer or coffee whilst doing your shop. Andrew, the owner of the villa, was exceptionally helpful with all our questions. He arranged for two chefs to come to the property & cook us a tapas menu which was just brilliant! Exceptional food & would highly recommend! We also used Edite of Algarve Green Rounds for transport to & from airport & for a couple of day trips, again lovely lady, great knowledge of the area & well worth it for our large party. Just an all round fantastic villa & will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: We are very grateful that you took the time to write a review of our house. We are always very gratified when people enjoy their stay in our villa and even more pleased when they do look after it with care and respect, which you all did! We are pleased to hear that the tapas went well and that our recommendation of Edite was successful. She is indeed a lovely lady who we have been recommending over the years and are pleased you enjoyed her services. Thank you again for taking the time and look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Kind regards, Andrew & Else

Amazing. like walking in to a Tardis.

  • 5 of 5

the property is fantastic. 6 bedrooms, pool very clean and just right for the property with sun on it all day. Has a built in barbeque with enough space on the terrace to seat 12 comfortably. Andrew was very attentive and nothing is too much trouble. he even arranged a Tapas night for all of us on my wifes birthday so we didn't need to go out. We would highly recommend this as the local chef Rupert provided everything and all we had to do was eat it ! the restaurants on the beach are close enough to walk to and there are 3 to choose from going to the right of high quality. going left is a 20 minute walk along the beach to Monte Gordo.which has a plethora of choice. you need a car if you are exploring but taxis to Monte Gordo are only 6 euros each way if you don't want to drive or walk. cant praise the villa too highly. if we get chance we will be going back asap.
