About the property

A 4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Beach House Set In A Private Plot Of Over 2500 sq metres

Praia de Monte Clerigo is located in the Costa Vincentina national park and is one of the most picturesque hamlets on the western Algarve. If you like surfing, body boarding or simply just lazing on the beach then this is the perfect place to spend a relaxing and very special holiday.

This unique property comprises:

A large, open-plan lounge, dining area and well-equipped kitchen. There are four bedrooms (two doubles and two twins), two bathrooms and a small shower room. There is also a large terrace with eating area, sunbeds and BBQ. From the terrace steps lead down to the beach and there are fabulous views of the Atlantic Ocean. The property also benefits from being recognized by the local council as an Alojamento Local, meaning it is a house licensed for tourists.

The nearest town is Aljezur and it has a variety of shops, supermarkets, banks and restaurants. Monte Clerigo, itself also has the luxury of three restaurants on or very near to the beach, again all within a very short walk of the house. If you enjoy nature at its very best this place is second to none.

About Lisa Cookson

We have lived in Portugal for the past 10 years with our two boys. Prior to this we were both employed by blue chip companies in the UK.

We wanted to see our children grow up and have achieved this and spent lots of time together as a family here, which would have been far more difficult if we had remained in the UK.

Lisa Cookson purchased this villa in 2007

Why Lisa Cookson chose Aljezur

When we moved to the Algarve, we quickly discovered Praia de Monte Clerigo and vowed if a property ever came up for sale we would buy it, as it is such a special place. In 2007 this happened and we have never regretted buying it for one moment, although we wish we could spend more time there ourselves!

What makes this villa unique

A truly unique place to spend a holiday. Our clients return year after year as they find it such a fantastic location.

Coming home

  • 5 of 5

For me Casa Monte Clerigo is the place I have always been looking for. The house is decorated with much love and care, the hosts Lisa and Garry are amazing. Their own love for the place is revealed in every details, therefore It is very different from many rental places and it is really looking for people who appreciate a place with character and uniqueness.

The moment you arrive , everything else is left behind and you start soaking and diving into the very special atmosphere of a timely home on the shore of one of the most beautiful and dramatic parts of nature, a genesis experience at its best. I hope this place wil never be destroyed by greedy touristic projects as it is really a witness of the beauty of Portugal facing the new world , ready to sit down at the beach and dream big and let your creativity and freedom flow in an unexpected way. A Place of Gods heart.

Best beach house imaginable

Right at the edge of the gorgeous Monte Clerigo beach (2 minutes walk to the sea, lovely sandy natural beach, good surfing), the house is spacious and has a large natural terrain around it, ensuring lots of privacy and tranquility.
