New air-conditioned apartment 100 mtrs from the amazing sandy beach of Monte Gordo. The apartment is located on the second floor of a new building (completed Nov 2012) with a lift.
The apartment has 2 good sized bedrooms each with large built in wardrobes providing plenty of storage space. The main bedroom has a double bed and side sea view from the french balcony. Across the hall is bedroom 2, which has 2 single beds and views across the rooftops to the surrounding countryside.
The inner hall leads past the stylish bathroom to the lounge with dining and kitchen area. The large sofa opens up into a sofa bed to accommodate 2 extra people in addition to the 4 adults in the bedrooms, 4 poufee cubes to sit on and a TV and DVD player for your entertainment.
Patio doors lead from the lounge area to the large terrace. Here there is a traditional Portuguese style BBQ and sink and outdoor garden furniture for al-fresco dining and great outdoor entertaining area on those warm summer evenings, or enjoying the sun on the cooler winter days.
The kitchen and dining area are extremely well equipped for self catering holidays. There are plenty of glasses, crockery, cooking utensils etc. There is a dining table for 6, a dishwasher to make light work of the washing up, a fridge freezer, microwave and toaster. The kitchen has a full size built in oven with hob and the utility area off the hallway houses the washing machine and cleaning equipment.
The property is so close to the fabulous beach, just behind the apartment is a mini market for all your daily essentials with all the amenities of the town just a few minutes walk into the town centre.
This is a fantastic holiday home which is ideally suited for couples, groups of friends and families alike.
Monte Gordo is a busy town all year round but without the overcrowded feeling. The beach is beautiful, with wide golden sands, straw sun parasols and sun loungers to hire. There are lots of bars, restaurants, shops and boutiques giving it a great atmosphere whatever time of year you visit. On the seafront is the Casino which is open to non members and offers a year round entertainment programme often including dinner and a show.
The Eastern Algarve in general is usually less touristy making it a more authentic Portuguese experience. The popular historical town of Tavira is only 20 mins away. There are lots of places to hire bicycles from in the town centre so you can really explore all the natural beauty this area has to offer. In the nearby town of Vila Real do Santo Antonio you can catch a ferry across the river Guadiana to Spain and visit the beautiful town of Ayamonte - two countries in one holiday!
For golfers there are many excellent golf courses within 10-20 mins drive. These include Benamor, Castro Marim, Quinta da Ria, Quinta da Cima, the excellent Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course at Monte Rei and the Seve Ballesteros designed course at Quinta do Vale. Across the Spanish border ( within 15-20 minutes) are Isla Canela, Islantilla and the highly rated course at Costa Esuri (Ayamonte). A little further afield are the 2 El Rompido courses and Dunas de Donana.
Just around the corner from the apartment is a nature reserve so why not explore the gecko trail through the nature reserve by the seafront.
If you have a car there is plenty of parking with a short walk of the apartment. For those arriving by taxi or public transport there is a good local bus service.
The nearest airport is Faro - approximately 45km / 40 minutes drive.
