Why Tessa Buchanan Patel chose Monchique region
Our family have owned Casa Abilheira since 1979. We rented it as a holiday home, fell in love with it and found that it was for sale. We have visited it at least 4 times a year since then and it has been enjoyed by 4 generations of our family. We love going there in all the different seasons. We enjoy a relaxing summer holiday making the most of the pool, or visiting in the spring and autumn and taking more energetic walks in the hills, enjoying the empty beaches and exploring the Algarve.
We have many favourite local restaurants, shops, beaches and walks and are happy to answer any questions you might have about the area.
We have become good friends with the Portuguese neighbouring family who have looked after the house and garden for us for over 30 years and are sure that you will enjoy getting to know them too.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Once again thank you for renting your lovely house to us. As soon as we got back to Holland we were already missing the wonderful view and the warmer weather. Our teenagers enjoyed themselves very much. Your lovely place just recharged everyone's batteries.
