The Algarve region
In the East Algarve or, like the Portuguese say: the Sotavento, which means "lee-side", you still find pure nature. Like the Ria Formosa, an extended lagoon-area along the coast from Faro to Vila Real de Sto António, the hills of the Serra de Caldeirão in the hinterland of Tavira and the river Guadiana, wich connects the Algarve with the Spanish Andalusia.
For the sea and beach-lover there are the sandy beaches of miles and miles like Ilha deTavira, Cabanas, Monte Gordo, Manta Rota, Praia Verde(Altura), Farol and Faro Island (Faro), Armona and Culatra (Olhão) en Fuzeta.
Historic, cultural and authentic places of interest are to be found among other things in Tavira, Faro, Estoi and Castro Marim.
The East Algarve has several golf courses, walking- and biking-roads, marinas , public swimming pools and sportparks. The sea-side resorts offer numerous possibilities for going out. For gastronomes there are culinary events like the Festival de Marisco in Olhão and the many fairs with specialties from the hinterland, the Serra.
Because of the favourable location the Sotavento is protected against the firm west winds. Besides an extra agreable temperature this also means safe swimming, diving and sailing on the unspoilt Atlantic coast.
The inhabitants of the East Algarve are friendly, hospitable and proud of the beauty and purity of their region. They hearty invite you to share these experiences!
Pleasant 10 min walk past small nature reserve to Monte Gordo, which has shops, restaurants (beach & town), up market boutiques, a casino and a beautiful sandy beach. Generally less expensive, more Portuguese and more friendly than the central Algarve. Popular historical town of Tavira 20 mins away. Fine walking and biking roads. In the nearby town of Vila Real Santo Antonio a ferry goes across the river Guadiana to Spain and the beautiful town of Ayamonte
Excellent golf courses within 10-20 mins drive include Benamor, Castro Marim, Quinta da Ria, Quinta da Cima, the excellent new Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course at Monte Rei and the Seve Ballesteros designed course at Quinta do Vale. Across the Spanish border still within 15-20 minutes are Isla Canela, Islantilla and the new highly rated Costa Esuri. A little further afield are the 2 El Rompido courses and Dunas de Donana.

"very nice appartment, would reccomend hiring a car."
nice quiet place although a fair walk to beautiful beaches. Good supermarket about a mile down the road to Spain, plenty of choice and cheaper than the ones in Monte Gordo.Plenty of nice bars and restaurants, the indian probably the best i've had. Take a trip on the ferry, 1.60 euro single to Ayemonte Spain from Villa Real, itself well worth a visit. The appt. owners easy to speak to and very helpful, all in all a great time was had and would definitely return next year.

"I really liked the apartment, so that was the second consecutive year I spent there vacation"
It is a cozy trimming has everything you need to spend a great holiday. How is a little out of Monte Gordo you can take steps to the village, which it does very well, and is not in the midst of confusion. I liked very much. I recommend!

"Exceptional value for money, hassle free, highly recommended!."
“We had a wonderful Honeymoon in Monte Gordo. Everything went like clockwork from booking to arriving at Faro airport. We took the Resort Hopper from the airport to Monte Gordo and were delivered right to the doorstep of our holiday home. The agent met us outside as arranged (at Midnight) and we were settled in within 15 minutes. The apartment was well equipped, comfortable and homely; we had everything we needed. Situated just 15 minutes walk from Monte Gordo town centre and fabulous beaches we found lovely restaurants, shops, bars and entertainment at the Casino. The beach was practically deserted and there was plenty to do, even out of season. The weather was fantastic almost every day; we experienced temperatures of up to 38 degrees centigrade whilst we were there! We found the cost of food and drinks considerably cheaper than the UK. There is an excellent, well stocked Hypermarket very close by. The buses are plentiful and cheap; we had fun visiting Vila Real de Santo Antonio which is an interesting town steeped in history, just a few kilometres from Monte Gordo. From Vila Real we took the Ferry to Spain, which took less than 30 minutes. All in all, this holiday represented exceptional value for money and we could not recommend strongly enough.” Sally-Jane & Terry Kruger

"The best place for families and romantic couples!"
We had a flight from Moscow to Lisbon and in airport we rent a car, the trip took about 3-4 hours! Thanks to the travel company which met us when we came to the place! At first glance everything was perfectly good - clean and well-equiped, later we find out even more pluses than we expected! It took 2 min to reach the beach by car and 10-15 min walking - parking we found quite easily (everyday)! Many restourants and shops around, also Monte Gordo very clean and calm city, and also very beautiful. Send is perfectly good - white and soft! The water in June was very cold but even that we swim a lot and we were very happy that when water goes back on beach you can find many small puddles where children play with pleasure! Grocery store located near by - 2 min drive! Very nice pool in the apartment's center - it is for tenants and it cost not so expensive! Before departure we decided to visit Lisbon and we were very frustrated in Lisbon bc on the second day somebody broke the window in our car and stole our bags. Thanks god we took our docs in hotel! In Monte Gordo much much better! Thanks to owner for such a good holidays and wish to everyone go there at list once! I think if we will have the possibility to go there again we definitely will do that again!
