Villa Location
Villa Monte Velho enjoys a great, secluded location, surrounded by rich Algarvean countryside, but is only a short walk from a small choice of shops and places to eat, with Branqueira village centre within a couple of minutes drive. The lively neighbouring resorts of Olhos D'Agua, Albufeira and Praia D'Oura are all within a very short drive and offer a much bigger choice of shops, places to eat, bars and nightlife as well as a great selection of beaches and golf courses.

Location features


This delightful 3 bedroom villa boasts a large lawned garden and swimming pool, as well as a great secluded location close to the centre of Branqueira which has a small choice of restaurants and a mini market. The nearest beach is Santa Eulalia, a few minutes away by car.

In contrast, the lively resort of Praia D'Oura is nearby. The famous Strip has all manner of shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and clubs to choose from and runs for 1 mile from the Montechoro Hotel to Golden Mile Beach, after which the resort was named, where you will find a selection of watersport facilities and beachside cafes.

Past Praia D'Oura is Albufeira, one of the Algarve's most popular resorts. Albufeira has a lot of Moorish history along its narrow cobbled streets in the Old Town, where you can also find a huge choice of restaurants and shops.
To Albufeira's far side are a string of picturesque cove beaches, such as those at Coelho, Castelo and Galé.

For a great family day out there is a great choice of attractions and leisure facilities within easy reach including a choice of waterslide parks and the Zoomarine Oceanarium and Dolphin Dhow, all within a 25 minute drive. Or kids will love the tree top adventure course at Luso Aventura Park, 2 miles south of the villa.

Or, for Golfers, the 9 hole Balaia Golf Course and 9 hole Sheraton Pine Cliffs Course at Olhos D'Agua are nearby, with 6 full championship courses in Vilamoura.

Paul Anderson, 11-Oct-2014

The villa was set in beautiful gardens, with a great pool. if you like a quiet location away from it all, yet within a short drive to all the amenities then I would recommend this villa. Great beaches within easy driving distance. Wonderful holiday even the odd shower (well it was October) did not spoil this holiday. I have no hesitation in recommending this Villa.
