The village of Caldas de Monchique is only a short distance up the hill from the villa and is well know for it spa water and treatments which you cant partake of. it is also famous as a very special beauty spot with some nice walks connect to the forest paths which adjoin Quinta da Mimosa. There are some good but quite expensive restaurants in the village square so it pays to use the ones nearer to the villa. Just before you get to Caldas there is the new international Longevity Spa resort/hotel which was built in this location because of the beauty of the area and the clean mountain air.. An attraction nearby is the Parque da Minha which is about country life with an old farmhouse, iron ore mine, distillery and other interesting things.
The villa is situated in the beautiful foothills of the Monchique Mountains range, but is only about 350 feet above sea level and although very secluded it is not at all remote and there are lots of restaurants and cafes within a short distance.
Other Activities: Lounging by the pool, barbecues, swimming, Bird watching, Country walks and all number of water sports within a few miles. Also the Autodromo of the Algarve where you can try anything from go-carts to full size racing cars. This is about 30 minutes drive away
Golf: The Morgado do Reguengo Golf Course only about 12 kilometres from the villa and is claiming to be one of the Algarves best golf courses. Several other excellent courses are within about 30 minutes drive from the villa.
