THINGS TO DO, PLACES TO VISIT
The villa is within easy distance of Tavira (regarded as the loveliest town in the Algarve), Estoi (with its Rococo palace now developed into a Pousadda and Roman ruins), Olhao (fishing port, excellent restaurants, markets and shopping), Vila Real (16th century town on the Spanish border) and much much more. Moncarapacho itself has a museum and an excellent range of small local shops, restaurants, pharmacy, post office, multi bank, bars etc.

From Tavira, Olhao and Cabanas you can travel by small boat to many truly superb offshore beaches. Seville can be reached within 2 hours, Cordoba is 2 hrs further on, , Lisbon is approximately 2.5 hours away. The roads and motorways are excellent. Alternatively within 30 mins driving west you can access major central Algarve towns and attractions .... or you could just relax around the pool and enjoy doing absolutely nothing - as so many of our guests do. Welcome Book in the villa is comprehensive with lots of restaurant choices and places to visit.

For those with quieter tastes the nearby Ria Formosa National Park offers excellent walks, extensive beaches and birdwatching. Flamingoes can be seen in cooler months and you can also see Portuguese water dogs with webbed feet.

There are some really lovely places to visit - you will not be disappointed. This is a truly unspoilt part of the Algarve. Eating out on wonderful local fish meat and wine is still surprisingly inexpensive. Why not try it for a change. THE REAL PORTUGAL !!

Large Group from Berkhamsted, United Kingdom Jul 2016

We stayed for two weeks at this fabulous Villa, which is about 5km from Moncarapacho. It was exactly as we had hoped for, the Villa was clean, comfortable and excellent value for money. We honestly couldn't fault the Villa itself.

The description does make it very clear that a car is essential and this is very true as the place is literally miles from anywhere. There is also quite a bit of building work going on around the resort, which doesn't affect the stay as it is far enough away not to bother you, but to get in and out of the area, the car got absolutely filthy and sometimes walking about the place could be tricky due to the mess.

However, please don't let that put you off the Villa, as once you got there, it was an excellent place to lounge and with the superb pool, the excellent games room and Sky TV, you would never want to leave the place , if that is the sort of holiday you want. The rooms were very clean, the bathrooms were excellent, having two fridges meant beer and food could be well stocked up and the Volleyball pitch and Boules Pit meant that the eight adults who went never got bored (especially with the pool table, dart board, table tennis AND table football.) Plus the wifi was excellent as well

By the way, the one place you can walk to is the Bistro down the road, (as described in the details) and we can confirm it really is excellent value, we went four times in the two weeks and always had a good meal. And Restaurant Antonio in Moncarapacho is also worth a visit, excellent food.

Overall, a superb Villa and ideal for a lounging holiday.

Family from Worcestershire, United Kingdom May 2015

We were hoping for good things from the description of this villa and were not disappointed. The villa is in an out of the way location and a car is essential but that was ideal for us. The villa had all the facilities that we needed including a good sized heated pool, games room and wifi. UK TV channels and aircon were also available but we did not need to use them. The villa and grounds were well looked after.

The area is still under development and there are nearby villas being built, the roads are quite poor for now. If I decided to return to the Algarve for another holiday I would definitely try to book again.

Family from Abbots Langley, United Kingdom Aug 2014

Lovely high spec villa with great pool. Air con. Big bedrooms.very clean. Outdoor terrace with BBQ was lovely place to cook food and eat. Games room was well equipped. We had lots of fun.
Good restaurant a mile away.

Minor downsides. Remote location cant walk to anywhere nearby all car. Wi-Fi internet slow.

Family from Hoddesdon, United Kingdom Aug 2014

Lovely villa and fully equiped. A little expensive but very nice...

Only a few "small" niggles, otherwise superb!:

No "welcome pack" so it felt a little unwelcoming and empty when we arrived - just T, coffee, milk! Not even simple things like salt and pepper were in the cupboards!
Pool towels seem to be well used, could be replaced.
Limited other towels inside
Wi-Fi was slow and not ideal, TV limited too but both these seem to be more "Portugal" issuse so not just this place

Would recommend though as a lovely place...

Family from Leeds, United Kingdom Jul 2014

Lovely Villa set in a peaceful location. We particularly liked the gardens which were immaculate. Very well equipped games room but sadly we spent too much time around the pool but a great facility if the weather were ever poor!! The local managing staff were friendly and helpful as was the owner. Would recommend.

Family from Ormskirk, United Kingdom Sep 2013

Having booked for a large mixed age family group, I was concerned that the villa would meet expections. I needent have worried it was great. Clean, spacious and well equiped. Pity that air conditioning in living room broke down and part proved impossible to replace, but apart from that it was wonderfull. With five children between 2yrs and 15yrs to keep happy the pool and games room were worth their weight in gold. Would reccommend. Car is essential, although lots of places within easy driving distance. Prior to the holiday Paula responded almost instantly to all queries, while there Sue, manager was friendly and helpfull. All in all fabulous time had by all

This is very much the unspoilt Algarve, the whole area is quite lovely, peaceful, low cost traditional food, lots of local markets/places to visit, very nice local people. The villa Casa Alegria was superb, very very large, wonderfully furnished and equipped, so much space!!! And, importantly the heated pool was magnificent. Planning to return next year with more friends.
