The beaches of the isles of Faro, Barreta, Culatra, Armona and Tavira form a natural barrier to the Ocean. Behind are the dunes, sometimes just a narrow strip and sometimes wider and then come the labyrinth of lagoons and small sand islands and channels. At low tide other salty habitats are uncovered forming marches and salt marshes.

Very nice stay
Our family of 14 from 4 countries in 2 continents got together for Christmas at this lovely property. The house is very comfortable and had everything we needed. The area is beautiful with many places to visit where the people are friendly and the food is delicious. Who knows, maybe we will return sometime!
Fab villa - will be back
This lovely villa is exactly as described in the listing.
For our party, it was perfectly positioned just outside Monte Gordo in a quiet location just a 5min stroll from the beach. The villa is also extremely well appointed inside.
Fabulous spacious villa
We were a three generation large family group (13) and villa had more than enough space for all of us. Rooms were well spaced apart although two bedrooms in basement do not have air conditioning but did have fans. Plenty of utensils pots and pans for cooking. Terrace for eating was fabulous especially with the gazebo to shelter from the 40 degree heat we had when there. Pool was well used by the kids and was cleaned regularly. When we cooked the power used to go off but this is quickly and easily rectified by switching the trip switch in the hallway back on I guess with so many rooms being used, air conditioner running and ovens all going at the same time it's no surprise. We never met hosts however we did contact them to arrange taxis as the numbers provided didn't understand english, however Andrew sorted this for us quickly and the taxi firm were fantastic and we used them regularly. Andrew also suggested before our stay Edite Felix from green rounds for airport transfers which we used and what a fabulous lady. Not only did she do all our transfers she took us shopping using her van so we had plenty of room for groceries. she booked and drive us to a private wine tour then showed us the coast of Algarve from carveiro to Monte gordo stopping in villamoura for lunch. Edite also arranged and drive us all to zoomarine which was a great day as well as as all that she arranged golf for some of our group having arranged everything including clubs for them collecting them early morning and bringing them back late afternoon. Fabulous service! You do not need the extra expense of hiring a car as monte gordo is so close, taxis are cheap (we only used them because of two disabled guests) the local bakery also has the essentials and great place to stop for a beer , wine or even a coffee also serves food until late in the evening. Local beach is stunnng never seen one so beautiful. Our favorite restaurant in Monte gordo was the Blue Parrot and Bar was Nox bar which had a fabulous singer, johns bar was good for cocktails but Nox just had the edge, try their white sangria it's amazing! All in all fabulous villa in one of the best locations on the Algarve, I can not wait to return.
Great location near the beach
My family as well as friends (13 of us) rented this property for a week in July. The location was great. It was a short walk to the beach; walking distance to cafes and a convenience store; and a short drive to a large supermarket. The house was lots of room for our large group, the pool was great, and Andrew was an excellent host.
We would love to return.
Fantasic Location, Decent Size and Well Equipped
My Family and I had a fantasic time at Andrew's Villa. Monte Gordo is a little town but you are not too far from the shop / supermarket etc. There's a little local shop / bar a short walk and the beach is only 5 minutes walk if you turn left out of the Villa.
The house itself is spread over 3 levels, all the bedrooms were a decent size and everything was as expected and clean. The house has aircon which was needed when we were there as it was around 35 degrees. There's an outside area with a table and a brick built BBQ which we cooked on half the time. The pool was a decent size and had plenty of seating around it. We had 3 families in the villa and there was plenty of room for all of us. There's plenty of cuttlery and crockery, coffee machine etc which was good. You can see that Andrew and his family obviously use the place and it is setup well. Very happy with our stay there and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who is looking for a large villa. We were over there for a wedding and a few family members came over to visit and were really impressed with the place. I got some serious kudos for arranging it all. Thanks very much to Andrew and his family.
Ideal family location
We were an extended family of 12 adults [aged 19-65 ] plus baby. Superb location, 5 minutes from a wonderful beach, 15 min stroll to resort of Monte Gordo and 5 minutes to the local bar / cafe / bakery. Location couldn't be better and we found shops and local bars to be so cheap. Lovely fish restaurant nearby.
The villa was comfortable and well equipped. Only improvement to suggest would be better lighting on the terrace used for dining.
The friendly owners were on hand for any problems - but it was a problem free holiday. Everyone had a great time; we wholeheartedly recommend this villa. Ideal for a family holiday.
