Monte Calicos is in a fabulous location with beautiful views. It's a pretty 25 minute walk to the village which has a decent range of restaurants, mini supermarkets and cafes. Walk down, taxi back worked well in the evenings! It's just 25 minutes from Faro with super beaches only 10-15 minutes away. The foot ferry from Olhao provides access to stunning little islands of unspoiled, untouched golden sand. Great for an afternoon or day trip. Don't miss out a trip to Armona.
Monte Calicos itself is the perfect getaway. Completely private with a colourful, well maintained garden. There's plenty of shade provided along the huge decked patio area and pretty umbrellas beside the large pool. The sunsets behind the villa were beautiful.
The beds are super comfy, there's masses of hanging space, power showers and a really well equipped kitchen. The whole villa was immaculate. And although there's a great oven we couldn't prize ourselves away from the fantastic BBQ! Thank you also to Sharon, Tim and Holly for being the perfect hosts. We won't hesitate in returning.
