Further details indoors

The house is fitted and furnished to a much higher than normal standard. One double bedroom with door to rear terrace and beautiful big hand carved bed. New en-suite with corner bath, under floor heating and massage shower complete with music! Two twin bedrooms with a separate new family shower room, again underfloor heating & massage shower. Door to breakfast terrace from one bedroom. Satellite TV's in two bedrooms. A cot is available. Large dining room with wood burning stove, beautiful big period dining table seating 6. A very large lounge with wide screen satellite TV, video, CD player and wood burning stove. All new furniture including cream leather recliners. Very attractive fully fitted cream kitchen installed a year or so ago with all new appliances at that stage. Also a washing machine and drier in the utility room (across the courtyard) which the maid uses for your clothes to save you the trouble.

All of the main rooms look out over stunning views. There are two big French windows opening from the lounge to the terraces and pool area. A roomy, well furnished and well laid out villa with every convenience and comfort to make your stay a memorable one.

The villa has ample shaded parking areas. The maid comes in 3-5 days a week - does change at different times of year. A baby sitter can usually be arranged with enough notice.

Further details outdoors

Two lawns with steps and a path through the natural garden area into the valley below.

Further details

A 'welcome pack' of essential groceries for the first day or two is put into the kitchen/fridge just before you arrive to save you the bother of rushing to buy food on your arrival day. This is a very popular villa in a wonderful position, an ideal base from which to explore and enjoy all the Algarve has to offer.

The Algarve region

Casa Vista Montanha has 6 golf courses within a 30 minute drive. Penina is the closest, just a 2-3 minute drive. Palmares is approx. 10-15 minutes drive.


'Vale De Milho'is an excellent course for beginners whilst giving the more experienced players a chance to concentrate on their short game. Waterfall into a large lake at the second hole.


The two 'Carvoeiro' courses. Set in an area of undulating land 'Pinta' & 'Gramacho' are the work of master course designer Ronald Fream. Scattered with almond, carob and olive trees - many centuries old. Pinta is a conventional 18 hole course whilst 'Gramacho' is unique in Europe with 18 tees, 18 greens but only 9 fairways!


The world famous 'Penina'. This Championship Course is the masterpiece of Sir Henry Cotton and his favourite course. The Portugese Open was held here in both 1998 & 1999.


The 'Alto Club' is set in rolling countryside with lovely views to the sea. Again designed by Sir Henry Cotton it features the longest par 5 in Europe.


'Palmares' is a real treat! With spectacular views out over the Bay of Lagos it combines links-style golf on the first 9 holes with a second nine which are slightly more hilly.


"Boavista' overlooks the Bay of Lagos to one side and the Monchique mountains to the other - it is described as 'a delight to the eye'.In addition to the Championship Course and driving range there is a teaching academy.

Serra e Mar

Visit Lagos with it's lovely marina & walled old town. Lots of shops & restaurants. Take a boat trip into Lagos Bay to see the dolphins or to go fishing. Silves is a very attractive old town with a medieval fort and is surrounded by orange groves. You can take a boat trip from Portimao to Silves - spot the turtles basking on the river bank! Portimao has lots of restaurants and good shops, have bbq sardines on the water front and fabulous big ice cream sundaes. Drive up to Monchique, a stunning view back to the coast, several good restaurants, try chicken piri-piri. A very quiet drive often not passing a car until you join a larger road half way up. Our local village on the coast is Alvor, 5-10 minutes drive. A really nice place to go in the evening for a good meal, lots of fish restaurants down by the water. Also some very good live music, watch out for 'Twin Flames', they are excellent. The atmosphere is safe, relaxed & friendly. A 'boardwalk' has just been completed over the lagoon area starting at the new fishermans huts. It cost 8 million euros and so is a very impressive affair. It goes a long way with look out & rest spots along the way. It has opened up both the lagoon & beach. Well worth a walk along.

"Lovely villa,fab location,huge pool,beautiful gardens&views !!!"

We had a really nice holiday at Casa Vista Montanha. It was well furnished/equipped, unlike some properties we have stayed in. The pool deck had pergolas which meant there was decent shade available. The area was quiet and the views were lovely. Maria, the maid, spoke very good English, was friendly, helpful and welcoming. The family left a guest book and lots of people commented on how nice she was. We hope to go again!
