Excellent property with outstanding views in very quiet area but close enough to Monchique

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at the villa during September, the location is stunning with views all the way to the coast from the pool and veranda. Wonderfully quiet and peaceful but close enough to restaurants a five minute drive away. Villa was surprisingly spacious and had everything required for a week's stay. The drive down to the property is challenging but well worth it for the views alone. Can't wait to return

Fantastic views of the Algarve!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful views of the Algarve from the swimming pool and veranda. We had a lovely time and enjoyed the beautiful pool and we'll kept garden. We would recommend this villa to anyone who would like to get away from it all and relax. Pica - Pau is also a good location to explore the Western Algarve beaches too, which are much less crowded. Even though it was in the middle of a heatwave, the villa was lovely and cool inside. We will definitely return to Monchique again.

Sensational views, mountain walks and pine forests – Monchique has since Roman times been known as the garden of the Algarve, and being situated on the highest mountain in the wide region it offers stunning panoramas to the south coast.

Drive up the winding road to Monchique and you’ll catch the heady fragrance of pine, eucalyptus and mimosa from the woodland-cloaked hills. This sets the scene for one refreshingly rural holiday. Perched on the hillside, this is a market town in the true...Known for its clean spring water, pure air and hospitable people.
