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 !!

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.
Stayed Saturday 16 August 2014 with Family
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...
Stayed Monday 07 July 2014 with Family
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.

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
Stayed Friday 02 August 2013 with Large Group
A great villa for 2 families and we had a great time .Ample facilities in the games room and kitchens, my daughter even managed to bake a cake whilst we were away. Peaceful surroundings and lovely spacious gardens yet close enough to restaurants and supermarkets for other needs. The Motorway makes it also easily accessible if you want the hussle and bustle of VillaMoura etc. Would definitely return to the area and consider one of these villas for sure.
Stayed Wednesday 27 March 2013
A very spacious, bright and airy property with 3 bedrooms downstairs and one upstairs, which also has a pleasant balcony where I enjoyed my morning coffee. The swimming pool was heated to a pleasant temperature and provided plenty of diversion from the cold and cloudy weather we experienced, as did the well-kitted games room. One has to be a rally-cross champion to drive to the property, the adjacent roads being rather pot-holed, but the villa itself is excellently maintained and very presentable indeed. All-in-all, I would definitely recommend the property.
Stayed Thursday 23 June 2011
Really beautiful villa. Clean and tidy, lots of room for everyone and a lovely heated pool. Although there were villas near by, the area was really peaceful and relaxing. The kids loved playing in the large garden area and the heated pool. Would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday with or without kids!
Stayed Saturday 08 August 2009
A wonderful luxury villa with everything we needed including a great pool! Fantastic weather and local cuisine. Our host, Paula Wilson could not have been more accommodating, many thanks for everything.
Stayed Saturday 11 July 2009
Was an outstanding Villa and will use company again. May be looking to return this Xmas.
Stayed Saturday 16 August 2008
Another excellent holiday! This is the second year we have been to Moncarapacho and we would highly recommend it. The area is very relaxing and unspoilt and the early morning sunrise is an excellent way to forget the toils and troubles of "normal life". Paula & Steve are wonderful hosts, and their knowledge of the area is essential. They really strive to ensure that everything is perfect, and it helps to make your holiday just a little bit extra special! Yet agian the villa was well equipt and very spacious - We can never go on a package hoilday in a hotel again!
Stayed Sunday 06 April 2008
Very large bright property with lots to do. the swimming pool is excellent and the bbq an excellent addition to usual kitchen cooking. Very much enjoyed our stay and thanks to Paula and Steve for their help.
Stayed Saturday 07 July 2007
The house, pool, and property are excellent. Swimming in the pool with those beautiful sunsets was priceless.When the development in the surrounding area gets closer to completion it will just add to the overall experience. Paula was a huge help in recommending a wonderful local restaurant with great food. See directed us to the local super markets as well as a great local flea market. Moncarapacho is definitely a great resort area close to Spain and all the great beaches of the Algarve,
Stayed Saturday 01 July 2006
We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is great, and our host at the villa, ms Paula Wilson was very helpful. She was fantastic. The only thing that was a little bit disappointing, it is 3,5 km to the nearest food shop, so a car is absolutely needed. In walking distance there is only one restaurant for now, but that is also a good one. But, the house is very nice, the pool and the area around is also great, så i can highly recommend this villa!

An extremely well equipped, tastefully decorated villa providing luxury and comfort in pleasant surroundings.
Stayed Thursday 15 December 2005
The Villa was fantastic, clean, modern, beautifully furnished and equipped. The pool was lovely with the purest water and the garden was beautiful. We would definately go back to Casa Alegria again.
the villa is like the pictures on the website. Beautiful villa with all the accommodations.
it did what it said on the tin to quote an English advert, everything exactly as described a truly lovely villa and gardens.and many places to visit within easy reach. Will be even better when the complex roads are properly finished as still a work in progress. Having visited the
Paula and Steve were excellent. Our holiday was very relaxing. The Restaurant de Carmo ( Marias ) is to be reccomended.
A beautiful house, with super pool and garden. Great facilities for all ages of children. Everything functioned perfectly. Beautiful part of the Algarve to be based, quiet and unspoilt, but lots to see and experience. Good supermarket and traditional restaurants and cafes very near by. Fantastic beaches within a short drive. Welcome pack excellent. We really appreciated the support from local managers.
The property was fantastic. You worry that the photos/description of a villa dosnt give a true likeness or only shows the best bits but in reality the villa outshone its reviews. The pool and grounds were amazing. You have catered for everything and really thought about the needs of your customers. My only critisism is of the roads in the development leading to the villa they need abit of work doing. All in all we had a great time. Thank you.
A splendid villa for an (extended) family holiday. Eastern Algarve represents great value for money - 6 glasses of very decent red wine for €6 in a bar recommended by the management company!
The villa was very spacious and well fitted. It was like home from home, we didint want for anything. BBQ and pool both very well used during our stay. There were 5 children in our party (aged 3 - 13) and all enjoyed their time at Casa Alegria equally. There was plenty to keep all of them occupied. Close by were well stocked supermarkets. The local Bistro recommended by Paula and Steve was a great hit, we returned 4 times in one week! Excellent food, wine and company! We are looking forward to returning and dragging ourselves away from the villa to explore the beautiful surroundings.
We were a party of 8 and stayed at Casa Alegria. We were welcomed by Paula and Steve and received essential foodstuffs upon arrival. We hardly left the villa during our week there so that speaks volumes as to how happy we all were there. We certainly hope to return. Sorry I do not have our booking number to hand
We had a lovely time at the Villa. There was a lot to do without having to travel huge distances and the heated pool was fab. All of Paula and Steves recommendations were spot on. The food at the local Bistro was wonderful and was well worth the price.
Just returned from a week in Casa Alegria (Sept 2007). We were a party of 4 adults and 4 children aged between 12 weeks and 2.5 years. The villa is really spacious, has everything we needed plus more - like toys and pool stuff for the kids. The heated pool is a godsend as it meant we could swim even if it got overcast. The development the villa is on is not 100% complete but we were never distrubed by the sounds of building or anything of the sort - not even sure there were any builders on site. Location is pretty good, 10 minutes from Olhao which has a very nice waterfront for kids, and a great fishmarket. Otherwise, a variety of excellent beaches and very nice towns are within 20 minutes drive. All in all - excellent.
A very nice villa with a lovely pool and garden. A perfect place for a lazy, chilled out holiday provided you don't want any local entertainment. Unfortunately, the property is let down by surrounding development work, much of which has been halted due to financial issues. However, once inside the villa or around the pool, the view is quite pleasant with a nice rural feel.
The family visited in April. Excellent first class villa, garden, pool, countryside, villages, local restaurants. Most of the time we spent in the villa, enjoying the swimming and BBQ. Very low cost food and drink. Recommend highly.

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.
