Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Monchique region - Cercada

Two bedroom villa with Pool and spacious living with open kitchen, Monchique

Casa Cercada is beautifully situated on the southern slopes of the lush Monchique mountains. Located in the traditional farmland, away from mass tourism, it is a wonderful vacation spot for lovers of tranquillity and space. There are no immediate neighbouring houses, Casa Cercada offers you 100% privacy.

For hikers, this house is an ideal starting point. The word 'mountain' is perhaps not quite in place. 'Middle Mountains' may be more appropriate. The highest peak, mountain Foia, is 900m high. Casa Cercada is located at an elevation of about 600m so usually here it is slightly cooler than at the coast. In the hot summer this can be a relief!

From the terraces in front of the house and pool are beautiful views to the south, towards the sea. Casa Cercada is a nice house to live in. In particular, the connected conservatory, lounge and dining area is a very spacious and popular place to hang out. In Casa Cercada you can relax in natural surroundings, with the coast at your fingertips!

Come visit the beautiful Monchique region, one of the most stunning and naturally beautiful areas of the Algarve, and Portugal. Both west and south coast are only half an hour drive away. Caldas de Monchique with its famous hot water springs and traditional atmosphere is just a five minute drive.

This is the perfect setting to plan your exploration of the Algarve and relax in a rural environment.

Fabulous Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We spent 2 fabulous weeks in Casa Cercada. It is very well equiped & is very clean & comfortable with lots of space, which is great for 2 children aged 12 & 9! We really enjoyed having a pool to ourselves. The pool is not as big as it seems in the photos. There are lovely local restaurants. Monchique village has good supermarkets & pharmacy. Maria & Vrank are always very helpful. We had a wonderful holiday.

Very true

  • 5 out of 5
We had a lovely week in this villa with pool. Pool is smaller as shown on the photo, but the sitting room and kitchen are more spacious in reality. Would love to go again.

The Monchique municipality is considered by many to be one of the most unspoilt and stunningly beautiful regions of the Algarve in southern Portugal.

The village of Monchique and surrounding mountainous region offer a peaceful contrast to the coastal areas that form the backbone of the region's tourist industry.

Clearly visible from most of the Algarve are the Foia and Picota mountains, who lend the area its name of Serra de Monchique. The village itself nestles between the two peaks, the one of Foia being the highest point in the Algarve, at 902 metres above sea level.

It is famous for its many hiking trails and lush woodlands that make it ideal for all sorts of outdoor activities, as well as many fresh mountain springs and varied biodiversity.

Monchique is renowned as the 'Garden of the Algarve', and a quick look around it reveals why. It is a lush area, with agriculture taking place mainly on hand built granite terraces. The region is very fertile, with agriculture crops ranging from oranges, lemons, grapes to apples, pears, cherries and chestnut.

The belonging town of Caldas de Monchique has been a famous spa since Roman times, with it´s healing hot sulphur springs still being in use.

The larger towns of Lagos and Portimão with their white sandy beaches of Praia de Rocha and Alvor are only 20 kilometres to the south, equalling to half an hour by car or public transport. The same goes for the unspoilt beaches near Aljezur and Rogil to the west, on more or less the same driving distance.

There are several well known golf courses also on a short driving distance in the area, most well known perhaps the one at Penina near Alvor. A recently opened course at Morgado de Reguengues offers 18 holes on a beautiful location almost in the shadow of the Foia mountains

Faro Airport is about 50 minutes by car.
