NICE AND COMFORTABLE VILLA FOR FAMILY OF SIX.

  • 4 out of 5
We spent 11 days with our family of six in this nice villa. Very quiet area, all rooms sufficiently large and clean. We will certainly recommend it to friends/family.
Remark : the television could be larger - it was sometimes difficult to see the ball during the World Championships football :-)

COMFORTABLE SECLUDED VILLA WITH A WONDERFUL VIEW

  • 5 out of 5
We contacted Maria regarding a different villa, but they suggested this one as it is south facing and with the wood burning fire would be warmer in February. We arrived at the time of the storms that affected all of Europe and in spite of unusual heavy rain in the first week we where very comfortable at Pica Pau. On arrival the fire had been lit, very welcome! Monchique is good area for (hill) walking and we had a number of enjoyable walks - the tourist information will print you out maps of the way-marked walks in the area. The villa is well equipped, the kitchen has good equipment, so eating in is easy also good restaurants nearby (30 min walk or 10 min drive). Would highly recommend.

OUR HOLIDAY IN PICA-PAU JUNE/JULY 2013

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed 2 weeks at the Villa Pica-Pau. The time was wonderful. Monchique is a pretty small place. The house and grounds are very clean. Mary and Vrank are very friendly and helpful. The house is very well equipped. The pool is very well maintained. The nearest beach is 45 minutes away by car. You drive 15 minutes to the nearest supermarket. Who loves the absolute rest is in good hands in Pica-Pau. We will definitely come back. Greetings from Berlin by Andrea and Torsten!

A FABULOUS HAVEN OF PEACE AND TRANQUILITY.

  • 5 out of 5
Pia Pau is a clean, spacious, airy and modern haven of tranquility just as the website describes. The one twin bedroom has the en-suite shower room and the double and second twin share the house bathroom with shower over bath. My wife and I have stayed in the area of Monchique three times now, and this is the best villa we have stayed in. There were ocassionally feint distant sounds from the granit quarry, and we heard a car other than ours twice during the whole week at the only villa further on down at the end of the road, there is also one villa above Pica Pau, but we heard nothing at all from either villa. Both villas can just about be seen from the garden but you have to look very hard to see them and the garden is very private.The most obvious noise is either that of peace and quiet or birdsong, in particular the resident Jay, we only spotted the green woodpecker once during our stay. The steep, narrow and circuitous approach to the villa may be a challenge to some, but it added to the feeling of isolation for us. Monchique and its amenities is close at hand and Maria was friendly and helpful. We hope to return to her lovely villa soon.

Sensational views, mountain walks and pine forests – Monchique has since Roman times been known as the garden of the Algarve, and being situated on the highest mountain in the wide region it offers stunning panoramas to the south coast.

Drive up the winding road to Monchique and you’ll catch the heady fragrance of pine, eucalyptus and mimosa from the woodland-cloaked hills. This sets the scene for one refreshingly rural holiday. Perched on the hillside, this is a market town in the true...Known for its clean spring water, pure air and hospitable people.
