Location description from owner

The Algarve region

Algarve's 200 kilometres of southern shoreline is one of Europe's most popular holiday destinations. Its stunning coastline, excellent golf courses and pleasant year round climate attract millions of tourists a year.

Bordered on two sides by the Atlantic, the Algarve is divided from the rest of Portugal by a series of low lying mountains. In the east, the Guadiana river forms a scenic border with neighbouring Spain.

The rugged coastline and more tourism-oriented lifestyle of Western Algarve contrasts with the tranquil beauty of Eastern Algarve with its extensive, less crowded, golden sand beaches, warm waters and protected tidal marshlands. Here, the many small resorts along the coast have retained much of their character, keeping the charm of long ago. Here, tourism blends in perfectly with local activities creating a relaxed way of life.

Monte Gordo

Monte Gordo is a seaside resort surrounded on three sides by a natural forest reserve, located on the eastern tip of Algarve, 3 km from the Guadiana river

It is located at the centre of a stretch of 8 km of sandy beach that extends from the mouth of the Guadiana River to the historic village of Cacela Velha

Short drive to several picturesque nearby towns: vibrant Vila Real de Santo Antonio (3 km), historic Castro Marim (6 km), quaint historic Cacela Velha (8 km), exciting Ayamonte, Spain (7 km) and historic Tavira (20 km)

Cosmopolitan Seville, Spain is only a 90 min. drive away

Enjoy the gastronomic experience of both Portuguese and Spanish cuisine within a 15 min. drive radius: Monte Gordo has lots of bars and restaurants, in town and on the beach, that offer excellent seafood and, of course, the many great wines Portugal has to offer; plenty of other superb dining opportunities exist in nearby coastal resorts in Portugal and in the Spanish region of Andalusia.

Motorway A22 will take you quickly anywhere along the coast, from Faro and Tavira to the modern bridge across the Guadiana to Ayamonte, Spain

“Very good location”

Reviewed 19 Jan 2013

This is a well presented apartment in a good location. The balcony is a sun trap and very private. The settee is comfortable, and my husband liked the armchairs. The downside is the lighting; not enough especially in the kitchen/dining area, bearing in mind it was December and dark by 6 o' clock. We brought a bedside lamp upstairs to illuminate the table area. Other than that we enjoyed our long stay here and would happily return. Make sure you visit the Al Fama cafe at the bottom of the block for a delicious snack / drink, with good service.

“fantastic apartment with breathtaking views”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2011

This has to be the nicest place we have stayed in the Algarve, on all counts from dealing with the agent to spending 2 lovely weeks here, the apartment has every thing you need to enjoy a relaxing holiday, the location is really good for both bars restaurants, also the beach is on your doorstep, on the rear balcony is a large brick built in BBQ, which for us was essential as we had more BBQ's than meals out, we are hoping to go again next year for the 3rd time
