Things to do

Old Town Monchique:

The old city centre of Monchique is characterised by narrow cobbled streets that criss-cross their way up the hillside. Charming cafés and traditional restaurants are plentiful. The town square has benches and trees for relaxing as well as a replica of a traditional Moorish water wheel.

Nossa Senhora dos Remedios:

This baroque sanctuary was built in the 18th century in honour of the patron saint of Lamego. The climb up may seem daunting; approximately 700 stairs lead the way, but the path is littered with landings, statues, pavilions, and fountains for a quick break to catch one's breath and enjoy the incredible view.

Caldas de Monchique:

This site has long been known for its healing natural spring waters. The Romans were the first to set up a bath here. Today, the Caldas de Monchique are popular with guests seeking relief from rheumatism and respiratory illnesses. Even if one is not ailing, it is a lovely place to visit.

Serra da Picota:

Serra da Picota is the highest peak in the Algarve region. The view from the top makes the hike up this approx. 3,000ft-tall peak well worth the exertion. The view reaches Faro to the east, Cape St. Vincent to the west, and Serra da Arrabida to the north.

Local food, drink, and crafts:

Shop in small, family-run stores for unique local goods. Visitors to the region ought to try Medronho, a spirit made from distilled indigenous medronho berries, as well as the local honey and sausage. Handicrafts such as chairs, wooden spoons, and ceramics are plentiful.

Monchique Church:

This church, built in the late 15th to early 16th century is located centrally in Monchique town. The interior displays well-preserved examples of 'talha dourada', a special type of gilded woodwork that was popular in the 18th century. Also on display are 17th-century artefacts from the Nossa Senhora do Desterro convent.

Weather in the Monchique region

Since Monchique lies inland, the climate tends to be much milder than on the coast and temperatures tend to stay rather comfortable the whole year round. Even in high summer, average highs are around 26°C with lows of about 18°C. The rainiest month is November, and winter temperatures top out around 16°C.

Travel to the Monchique region

The closest airport to Monchique is in Faro (FAO) with direct connections to most major UK and European airports. Monchique is located about 50 miles from Faro Airport so the drive is only about an hour long.

Brilliant villa for the family to stay at

5 of 5
The Villa was fabulous. A set of 9 Villas in a well secured Cul De Sac. Parking at the side of the Villa. Steps down to the large pool which leads onto the front door. Walking in and you have hit the wow factor. Two bedrooms downstairs hallway and Dining and kitchen. Well played out and a relaxing sitting room for all to enjoy with games and TV. Two further bedrooms upstairs each with ensuite. Built in cupboards for all your necessary clothes. Kitchen had all the necessary equipment for us to cook with. Kids loved the swimming pool and were in there most of the day. Garden and Balconies were a nice place to soak the sun in. The Villa is alarmed for you piece of mind. Air conditioning within the Villa. Driving distance to all areas of algarve including shopping facilities. Was a bit chilly and the owner came and set the heating which was hitting all the right boxes. Would I stay here again? Definitely

We loved this place as its comfortable, good size, equipped with everything you need and the highlight for us was the balcony views. Would strongly recommend for a relaxing break.
