This really is a beautiful villa. Tucked away from its neighbours about 200 yards down a winding driveway, you could easily believe you are alone in the world in this magical spot where a pretty stream runs though the garden. Yet it is not at all remote with restaurants within 50 yards of the gateway and big towns and nightlife (if you want it) only about a 20 minute trip by car.
The villa has four bedrooms,four bathrooms (2 with baths, 1 with a hydrotherapy shower and 1 with a standard showers). There are three balconies and two patios plus the pool area and barbecue. The living area is a huge open plan room with wood burning stove and satellite TV*. There is a separate dining room with french doors to a patio which the kitchen has direct access to. For shopping, Monchique has an excellent supermarket and numerous small shops, while the large fishing port of Portimao is only about 18km away. Buses stop nearby for Monchique or Portimao, but a car is recommended.
This beautiful villa offers you a very private holiday yet it is not at all remote, with restaurants just over the road from the driveway. It is situated about 2km from the picturesque spa village of Caldas de Monchique and only a short drive from the resorts of Praia da Rocha, Portimao and Alvor. There are several good golf courses within about 20 minutes by car and also several spectacular beaches about the same distance away.

Quinta da Mimosa is located in the beautiful 3000ft Monchique mountains, but being in the foothills it is only 350 feet above sea level and 15 minutes drive from Portimáo, so not at all 'out in the sticks'.
In August 2018, you may have heard about a bad forest fire in the Monchique area. Quinta da Mimosa was safe from this and does not have pine or eucalyptus trees nearby. The mimosa trees do not burn too easily and in any case are a safe distance from the villa. Unfortunately some of the nearby hills were damaged, but hopefully next spring the new growth will start to come through.
If you enjoy walking, footpaths from the property lead to trails that cover the whole Monchique eco zone. This is still accessible but a lot of the forest was damaged by the fire and trees lost. It did "open up" some of the overgrown parts, but again, these will take a while to recover.
