Get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful, private, cozy, comfortable and managed by the delightful Pascal and Marie.

The booking process was remarkably easy and straight forward, and Pascal is very responsive to emails.

Having been to Monchique previously, we were looking forward to the visit and we were not disappointed.

This is by far one of the best equipped villa's I've ever stayed in!

The pool is lovely and the covered patios provide welcome respite from the sun at lunchtime and/or dinner.

We will go back again; I highly recommend this place.

Wonderful relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time holidaying in Portugal and we are so glad we found this Quinta and Monchique!

The booking process was very easy and Pascal was very responsive to any questions we had before we arrived. We were met at the local Intermarche supermarket and followed our hosts for the 10 minute drive to their wonderful home.

The house is delightful, extremely well equipped, clean and cool. Located perfectly at the top of the valley overlooking Monchique. Although the hosts live next door you are not overlooked and enjoy complete privacy unless you need any assistance where Pascal and Marie are always willing to help. Nothing is too much trouble and they are great hosts.

The pool is refreshing and a great place to chill.

The gardens are well worth exploring. They are full of fruit trees and during our stay we regularly picked fresh cherries & oranges and juicy lemons were always available for the odd cocktail!.

If you don’t fancy using the marvellously equipped kitchen there is a great restaurant 5 mins walk away which is good quality and value. If you want some more options there are 4 restaurants within a few minutes’ drive away.

Monchique is a great base from which you can explore. West to the dramatic coast and beaches or south to Portimao and Lagos if that’s what takes your fancy. Great sunsets 15 mins away up at Foia are worth the trip!

We had a great time and would love to come back in the future. Thanks for a great holiday Pascal & Marie

Idyllic setting and wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

Our stay began with a very warm welcome from the owners Pascal & Marie. They met us at the local supermarket and led us up the hill out of Monchique (about 2 miles) to their hidden gem. From there they gave a very detailed and thorough tour of the house telling us about every little detail as though we were there first visitors. The house was immaculately clean and as the holiday progressed I soon learnt that the house was extremely well equipped. The kitchen had absolutely everything a professional chef would need plus other details such as a cool bag for the beach.

The layout of the house was slightly unusual because the three bedrooms were all located in different areas of the house. It is difficult to work this out from the photos and description. The master room upstairs, the twin room on the ground floor and then another master suite on the outside of the house. Therefore I don't feel it would be suitable if you had more than 2 children but ideal for 2 couples. The pool was amazing and heated to 25 degrees everyday.

Despite the owners living directly behind the holiday house they were extremely discreet. You wouldn't have even known they were there so certainly not an issue if you felt you didn't want them close by. There was a restaurant at the top of the driveway and although we didn't visit looked lovely. The views from the house were stunning and a 35 minute mountain drive took you out to the stunning west coast or 25 minutes you were in town of Portimao. Mochique itself is a beautiful town with lovely pavement cafe bars offering a quiet and un-spoilt experience of Portugal. We stayed with our 7 and 5 year old and had a magical two weeks. I would not hesitate to recommend this house. You are guaranteed a warm welcome and a fantastic holiday in beautiful Portugal.

Beautiful villa in a relaxing setting

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful week's holiday in this gorgeous villa in June.

The location is fantastic, the villa is tastefully decorated and clean and the welcome we received from the owners was second to none!

The owners live next door and are happy to offer any assistance should you need it - and equally happy to give you independence and the space to enjoy the comfortable villa and its beautiful surrounding gardens.

There is even a fabulous restaurant at the entrance of the Quinta, a few minutes' walk away, serving excellent food.

Highly recommended!!

Een mooi huis op een prachtige plek

  • 5 of 5

Dit huis moet je boeken als je houdt van privacy, comfort en rust op een prachtige plek. Het zwembad is fantastisch: verwarmd, groot en diep met lekkere ligstoelen ernaast en prachtige bloemen en planten er omheen. Het huis is comfortabel, de keuken van alle gemakken voorzien, de serre/wintertuin met een glazen pui die je helemaal open kunt schuiven is heerlijk. De wifi in het huis is perfect.

De eigenaren Pascal en Marie wonen op hetzelfde terrein, zijn heel hartelijk en gastvrij, maar laten je helemaal vrij en door de perfecte ligging van het huis heb je 100% privacy. Pascal reageerde via de mail snel, duidelijk en attent op de vragen die we hadden voor we overgingen tot het boeken van het huis.

In Monchique is een grote supermarkt en er zijn genoeg restaurantjes. Door het prachtige uitzicht is restaurant O Luar de Foia een aanrader. De bevolking is erg aardig, de kust van de Algarve mooi en wij hadden begin mei heerlijk weer. Kortom een heerlijke plek om lekker vakantie te vieren. Echt een aanrader!

Escape from the Algarve heat and tourists

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful haven of peace and tranquility away from the masses but within easy reach of the coast. The property is very well laid out with a beautiful view - a real escape. Our children loved the pool and we all loved the nature.

Activities for your holiday in Monchique, Portugal

The highest point of 'Serra de Monchique' rises to 900 m, but there are other wonderful places to explore. The presence of a luxuriant subtropical vegetation is due to the very favourable climate. Many creeks, springs and rivers have been popular since the Roman age, especially the hot springs that come from the mountain sides. The springs of Fonte Santa da Malhada Quente and Caldade Monchique are known for their therapeutic virtues. If you are looking for a place to avoid the stress of your working life, you won't be lacking a variety of choice for places to hide in the mountains. Many hike paths in the region will lead you to isolated areas of the Algarve, offering panoramic views of the entire region up to the Ocean. In total, there are 300 km of walk.

Golf: Morgado Golf Course, Monchique

Morgado Golf Course is nestled in a natural landscape, close to the Serra de Monchique and the tourist town of Portimão, this field makes it possible to play golf in a place that preserves its flora, characterisitc of the Algarve region.
