We purchased the Stonehouse in 2007 having spent a wonderful holiday there to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary.

We have continued to rent the property since we bought it and regularly visit to ensure the upkeep of the property is maintained.

Mark & Sharon Jenkins purchased this cottage in 2007

Having never visited Portugal before we stayed at the Stonehouse to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and fell in love with the house, location and area. As fate had it, it turned out that the property was for sale, so on a whim we decided it was to good a chance to miss and bought it!

The Stonehouse offers seclusion and privacy yet is within close proximaty to the quaint market town of Monchique that has all the amenities one requires when on holiday - cafes, restaurants, fruit/veg market, bank, chemist, butchers, souvenir shops and supermarket.

The view over the 'valley' towards Portimão and the south coast, just made us want to own this best of both worlds, seclusion but without being isolated. It is an ideal base to explore both the southern & western area of the Algarve,

The panoramic view from the private terrace and pool offering seclusion along with the unique layout of the property allowing the view to be enjoyed to the full.

Our escape to a little bit of paradise.

The Algarve is a wonderful holiday destination with some superb beaches, bustling resorts and, above all else, peace and tranquillity. Our stay at the Stonehouse in the Monchique Mountains had this in abundance, with easy access to anything else you might need.

Once we had settled ourselves into the delightful Stonehouse with it’s gorgeous terrace, fantastic views and the pool to cool off in when we became too warm, we found it very difficult to tear ourselves away, and only managing the odd walk of which there are lots. We did however manage to drag ourselves out for a few meals in the Monchique area where there are some charming little Restaurants, and even if you do have a relaxing holiday as we did, you must have at least one little wander around Monchique to savour the laid back life style of these very friendly people.

We simply cannot wait for the chance to return!

What a smashing place

  • Review Submitted: 26-Jan-2014
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2011
A delightful place that feels like home from home with all the added little comforts.

What a smashing place you have here, very peaceful, was nice to sit on the terrace in the evening just to look at the views & the stars.

Walked over the hills to Monchique, also visited the West coast beaches, but it was always so nice to come back & relax in the pool & simply sit on the terrace enjoying the peace & quiet.

Visited the sand sculptures at Pera - they are amazing!

Thanks, it's been a very relaxing & peaceful 2 weeks - shame it had to end!

One of our favourites

  • Review Submitted: 26-Jan-2014

We have stayed in Algarve area several times over the years. The Stonehouse has got to be one of our favourites.

We found the 3 piece suite so much more comfortable than we have found previously in other properties.

We found Monchique to be a very pleasant town & had everything that we needed, Supermarket, Restaurants & even the Ochala Tea House, having free Wi-Fi access, as well as gorgeous pastries & cakes!

Simply wonderful

  • Review Submitted: 26-Jan-2014
  • Date of Stay: May 2011
Thank you for allowing us to use the Stonehouse. We had a wonderful stay.

This was not our first stay in the Monchique area, but the views & location are great & plan to come again to your house. We only had rain on 2 days out of the 14 we were here, the rest being hot & sunny.

Most of our time was spent reading & sunbathing & using the bbq on the terrace.

The Stonehouse is ideally situated to visit the sandy beaches of the south coast or the more rugged secluded coastline of the west coast, both being within a 30 minute drive. The market town of Monchique is just a 10 minute drive, which has stunning views from both the peaks of Foia (the highest peak in the Algarve).& Picota. Caldas de Monchique (spa resort) Silves (castle) Portimao (19km), Lagos (zoo), Cape St Vincent - the most westerly point of Europe, Albufeira (zoo marine - where you can swim with the dolphins, during the summer season) & Pera - site of the international sand sculptures all within easy reach. A perfect location to visit most of the Algarve region.
