A Ladies Holiday to Remember

By Eileen Rossi on 19-Feb-2019

Review #25241722 “ Seaview, Quiet 5-Acre Hilltop, 3 villas, 2 bedrooms each”

A ladies holiday to remember!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

My friends and and I often, once or twice a year, plan short holidays to celebrate our “special” birthdays. We’ve been many places including Spain, Budepest, Italy, New York and Iceland but none has captured the holiday/homy feel as did our stay at Monte Velho. Aside from the beautiful weather and view, we were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome! Each day offered us opportunities to explore the surrounding areas, including gorgeous beaches and market towns, or just chill out by the pool indulging in sangrias and home prepared meals by one or more Of our group. All and all we all managed to agree one one thing and that is that our holiday here at Monte Velho was probably one of the best if not the best holiday we’ve been on as a group!

We just ended our 2nd stay with Mary & Bill & family at Monte Velho, and we are already planning a return trip. The villas are gorgeously built and appointed, with every need and convenience you can imagine (down to sunhats and sunlotion and condiments for cooking). They are spacious and comfortable and quiet, and with the patio, pool and gardens, they provide the perfect retreat from day trips around the Algarve. We have brought our baby (now toddler) twice, and he loves it, too. We cannot recommend highly

We stayed at Casa Helena with 2 adults and 2 small children. We couldn't hav asked for more. The house is so lovely with all the flowers. It was bigger than we expected with the seperate bedrooms. It's clean and fresh and it felt like home emediately. Helen is the best host you could have. She is so friendly and became best friends with our son who adored her (and still does). We will definately come back! Thank you Helen for an amazing time!

Had 2 wk break in Casa Helena beginning of April. Enjoyed every minute of relaxing by the pool, taking in the views, visiting local attractions. Day trip to Seville made too. Villa well equipped and clean and comfy. Mary just close by if you need anything and was a superb host leaving you to enjoy your holiday. Have recommended already to lots of family and friends and would definitely go back.

We stayed in Casa Catarina for 10 nights and we had a great time. I agree with everything the other reviews have said but, as I am a bit slow, I didn’t really know what well equipped really meant. Therefore I though I would list everything I liked and didn’t like about our stay. Likes: The Villa really did have everything we needed – Hairdryer, towels (both hand, bath and beach), shampoo and soap, some tea and coffee, some really sharp knives (I’ve got the cut to prove it), washing machine and dish washer (with tables), spare shopping bags, loads of cutlery, plates, bowl etc. and allsorts of little extras – like charcoal for the BBQ. There was even a bowl of oranges and all 3 major food groups – Red, White and Beer – which was really nice welcome surprise. Dislikes: The local town is a little too far to walk to. The towel rail in the bathroom was too slippery. Some of the knives were too sharp! As you can see by my short and pedantic list of dislikes, it is hard to find fault. Mary and Bill where lovely hosts that really made our holiday special.

Villa in beautiful guiet garden setting

By Alan L Said... on 16-May-2016

The 3 Villas are set in a rural tranquil setting amidst beautiful gardens around a 10 metre swimming pool. The Villa Catarina was well equipped, rustic, with 2 terraces placed for the daytime and evening sun with views down to the sea. The owners live on site, and are available for advice and solving any problems promptly and efficiently. Rates are cheaper than the western Algarve, which has more tourism than the eastern sector, where agriculture plays a larger role. The coastal lagoons and Islands have great bird watching with Flamingoes, Spoonbills, and many other coastal birds with Storks nesting in many villages on roof tops etc. The downside is that the beaches are more difficult to access and not as attractive as in the Lagos area for example. There are several good Restaurants in the nearby town of Moncarapacho, which I reviewed separately on TripAdvisor. I highly recommend the Villa for those seeking a relaxing rural setting, comfort, but not luxury, and with good service plus an attractive price, particularly in low season.

Romantoc Getaway

By Jess Said... on 24-Apr-2015

We have just returned home after two wonderful months in Casa Helena, what a little bit of Paradise, fantastic villa, equipped with everything you could possibly need, and a kitchen that was better equipped than my own back home, very spacious villa, two large bedrooms, large Dining area cosy lounge, superb terrace with a view to die for, lovely pool area and stunning gardens, so relaxing, we could not have wished for better hosts than Mary & Bill who were always on hand with lots of information, we felt very much at home, and were extremely sad to leave, I would definitely recommend this fantastic place, Thank you Mary and Bill for making us so welcome, also Richard and Joan, not forgetting Marcia, we do miss her singing away with her earphones in while she was gardening, not sure she was even aware that we heard her, it truly is a home from home and we will definitely be back, hope Shay and Rex are behaving, we do miss their morning visits, Take care, best wishes to all, love David & Jessie xxx

My last visit

By Jeanette McConnel Said... on 14-May-2014

I have been a regular guest at Monte Velho, Moncarapacho, Eastern Algarve, on an average of once a year since 1994, and my visits never disappoint! I have stayed in several of the Villas and each one is unique, combining traditional Portuguese décor with all the ‘mod cons’ of home with the added bonus of friendly Hosts nearby who will provide you with all the Tourist Information required. Charming bougainvillaea framed terraces adjoin the Villas and capture the warm Algarve sunshine and views to the ocean. The pool is there for Summer days – swim or be lazy poolside or in a hammock under the trees. The charming Village of Moncarapacho is only a short drive away with cafés, restaurants and historic points of interest. Winter or Summer, I strongly recommend you enjoy the MonteVelho experience!
