There is great attention to detail in both the furnishings and layout. We were both impressed by the tasteful decorative touches from the dried flowers to tile mosaics on the walls. An example of the design is the large built in closets in the upstairs bedrooms - I have never stayed in a rental with as much closet and drawer space. The property was extremely clean and well-maintained. The beds were all comfortable. The villa is spacious both in the grounds and inside. Where some may have been tempted to have 4 or 5 bedrooms, the 3 good sized bedroom and large living areas given a certain dignity and sense of spaciousness. The kitchen was well equipped as far as pots and pans, dishes and cutlery. The appliances all worked. Note - there is a clothes drying rack but no clothes dryer as such, to go with the washer. There was a beautiful view of the valley from this hillside location from both inside the villa and the outside terraces and pool deck. When it is clear, one can see Portimao and the ocean on the horizon, about 20km away. There is a neighbour to the east side that is fairly close to the villa, but they kept to themselves. The west side of the house and around the pool deck is very private. The villa is set well back from the road down a steep driveway. The location gives a sense of peacefulness. We walked into the pleasant town of Monchique a few times and also ate at the nice restaurant at the top of the driveway - the O Fuor da Foia, rated highly in Tripadvisor. You need to be reasonably fit given the road is steep. Monchique has a large modern InterMarche supermarket and some smaller grocery stores and butcher shops. There are also a number of pleasant cafes. There is a large shopping mall in Portimao. A car is recommended. If you have one, the villa makes a good base for exploring the region. The west coast is about 45 min away by secondary road, while Portimao and the A22 main tollway is about 20min south. We went as far as Odeceixe in the north west. Despite the weather during or stay in late Oct, we were able to use the pool a bit when the sun was shining brightly. It is not heated and was cool by that time of year, especially since we had some unusual cloudy days and rain. We would not hesitate to rent from Nigel again. He was easy to deal with and extremely responsive to any questions. Given its high quality, the villa is a real bargain in the low and shoulder season. Highly recommend it.

The villa is beautiful, very luxurious and spacious. It was very clean and in an awesome shape both in and outside – perfect service done by the owners and their local staff.  Our hosts have been very welcoming and attentive – from the booking to preparing the trip to quickly taking care of a special request during our stay – a very professional service. It literally was like staying in a nice hotel.  The kids enjoyed the pool and spent ages in it – the grown ups loved the trips to the amazing local restaurants – all cherished the beautiful beaches and the countryside. Monchique is an excellent place to explore the Algarve with good distance to South and Westcoast, historic villages and the Sierra. We look forward to visit again!

I spent a great deal of time in the hammock especially in the morning and evening after surfing. There is also a table for sitting down for a meal. Or simply walk out of the door which goes straight into the beachside restaurant which serves good food and has friendly staff. There are also at least 3 or 4 restaurants close by, some in walking distance. My friend had the room on the left and I had the room on the right and my bed was a very big double and very comfortable! And my friends bed looked the same size and mattress. The wifi was excellent. Antonio was exceptionally friendly and even called to check everything was ok after we settled in. I intend to go back next year.
