About Sharon Beddall
Tim, Sharon & Holly Beddall
Sharon Beddall purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Sharon Beddall chose
An outstanding location with everything you need within easy reach. Our search for the ideal location to build Monte Calicos took us many years after deciding upon the general area of Moncarapacho, a charming throwback in time. This area is not a typically touristic destination at all, it is primarily a farming area that happens to have been stumbled upon by those of us who have been lucky enough to stumble in the right direction. A small town with a couple of banks, small supermarkets, chemist, five or six good local restaurants and even a local taxi service with a fixed rate.
What makes this Villa unique
Our guests appreciate the peace and quiet, privacy,outstanding location, stunning pool and top class accommodation that we provide and continue to upgrade as time goes on. Watch the video below

An amazing villa - beautiful setting for a wonderful holiday!
The villa is beautiful - spotlessly clean and so well equipped, we couldn’t have asked for more. The pool is perfect, and the solar heating meant we could use the pool everyday, even on cloudy days!
Sharon and Tim were extremely welcoming and generous hosts, meaning we could truly relax from the moment we arrived! Can’t wait to return!
Superb villa and pool
We stayed for a fortnight and enjoyed every minute; the quality of the villa, the helpfulness of the owners, the warm and inviting swimming pool, the views and surroundings etc. Furthermore the villa is in a good location with easy access to the surrounding area and to Spain, but is in a nice, peaceful area. What more could you ask!
Wonderful home our stay was fabulous
Very nice villa with excellent swimming pool.
Sharon and Tim have created a beautiful place. We used the swimming pool even with lesser weather (the pool is heated). The villa is situated in a way that you have good privacy. Moncarapacho is a nice village with a lot of restaurants. The first thing you see when going there by foot (nice walk) is a bakery with excellent coffee and fresh bread)
We stayed there end of april 10 nights with my parents and my brother and his girlfriend. The weather variated from windy or cloudy towards excellent (sunny and hardly any wind).
Childern liked the pool the most. We recommand however to go to the nearby beaches and to Olhao.
Only improvement for us large Dutch are the relatively small beds (my father and brother are 2 meters)
Amazing villa in a stunning location!
We had such a fantastic fortnight in this beautiful villa. It was so well designed and equipped to a high standard - clean, comfortable and had everything we could hope for. Sharon and Tim were friendly and welcoming and so helpful. We all enjoyed the pool and the grounds - great bbq and lovely walks. The town is great and we enjoyed visiting a few of the beaches in the surrounding area. We would definitely return - it's a really special villa in a lovely part of the world.
