Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Monchique region
Sleeps 8, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, private heated pool
Situated away from the crowded coast and the tourist developments and offers a different flavour of the genuine Portugal amidst the scent of pine and eucalyptus trees. The property is approached up a cobbled lane away from the road which ascends to Foia, the highest point in the Algarve, and is a five minute drive to Monchique, a bustling market town with a good range of shops which cater for all day to day needs. A new Intermarche supermarket has opened in Monchique in Spring 2012. The views from the villa are spectacular over the rolling foothills of the Serra de Monchique to the coast from east of Albufeira to beyond Lagos. There are many good and inexpensive restaurants within a short distance, especially the renowned Restaurant Rampa, well known for its excellent piri piri chicken.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We got back yesterday and we all agreed that we have just had the best holiday ever, and that Casa Rosa was without doubt the best holiday house we have ever stayed in! It's just so lovely, so spacious, within and outside. The photos on the website are very good - it is what attracted me in the first place, the sense of space and plants and views and luxury, - but we don't think they really do the house justice! The gardens are lovelier, the pool is larger, the bedrooms more charming, it was all such a treat. We kept marvelling to each other "Look! a coffee making machine!" and "Have you noticed that the knives are sharp?" It is so well appointed, and it has the feel of a much loved home that you are kind enough to share. The directions were really good too! We have stayed in a lot of holiday houses over the years, and this year's experience was the utter winner! Thank you.
