Peaceful traditional villa in the mountains...

  • 4 of 5

Having stayed around the coast a few times but previously visited the mountains - we wanted to try a more traditional place to stay, away from the busy areas and Monchique is certainly that.

The villa is looked after by Pascal - a friendly Frenchman next door, who wants to make sure you have everything you need but on the whole leaves you to it.

The villa has rustic charm, is very private and only overlooks hills opposite (quite a way away) - it's a terraced plot with fantastic well presented grounds with small gravel pathways squirrelling through the trees and bushes and great private pool area with stunning views.

The location allowed is to venture further - going to Aljezur and the famous Praia de Monte Clerigo... we also dropped on the Algarve race circuit by accident which has a fantastic outdoor kart track (brilliant!)... you're about an hour to 2 hours away from anywhere else - whichever direction you travel - so you need a car.

If you're after nightlife and entertainment - this is not the place for you... but if you want to enjoy a more traditional Portugal, then I would highly recommend this.

Eating tips... Rei Do Piri Piri is a short walk and gets terrible reviews on TA but when we went it was good - Piri Piri are the views. In Monchique itself, Ochara gets great reviews as a veggie restaurant on TA but it's basically a toastie place and expensive for what you get. Intermarche supermarket in the town has a good selection... but you have to try the burgers at Fonte dos Choroes in the town centre.

nice cozy little house in the hills

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cozy little house on the hills of Monchique. Very thick walls, so the house stays cool without airco, even on very hot days.

Superbe pool (14 x 5), beautiful garden to pick your own oranges for breakfast

Fantastic house with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Typical Portuguese cottage, surrounded by a beautiful and well-kept garden. Master bedroom with comfortable bed and modern bathroom. Stylish, well-equipped kitchen. Excellent internet connection - suitable for remote work. Absolutely breathtaking view of the valley and the opposite hill. We fell in love with this beautiful and relaxing place. Hosts Marie-Pierre and Pascal are remarkably friendly, helpful and kind. Immediately responded to every request for help. When we recommend the place to stay in Algarve, Quinta das Oliveiras is the number one.

Quirky Portuguese Quinta

  • 5 of 5

We really liked the quirky layout of this quinta! It had everything we needed... A well equipped kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine and even a coffee maker! Great bbq too! The master bedroom was very spacious, with the ensuite jacuzzi bath! Pool was really nice!

The area around Monchique is much more picturesque than by the south coast, although the west coast is quite spectacular. Both are easy to get to from here. We had a couple of lovely meals out...Jardim das Oliveiras and the restaurant in Caldas de Monchique are both well worth a visit.

If you are looking for a beautiful country villa in the south of Portugal, away from the hustle and bustle of the coast, this is the place. The hosts, Marie and Pascal were absolutely amazing. Not only did they give us with a great tour of the property when we arrived, but they set up a bedroom for our baby and even brought us a bag of fresh fruit. They were very helpful with any questions we had and extremely familiar with the area. The house is exactly as described, very quiet, great view, nice pool and a very well stocked kitchen (and nice bbq). The property is very private and you are surrounded by fruit trees and hiking trails. On the road, the house is about a 45 minute walk into town (quite hilly, but you are staying in the mountains), but Pascal showed us a shortcut through the property that cut the walk time down to about 15 minutes. Monchique itself is very peaceful - nice restaurants, friendly locals - a very different feel from the resort towns. The coasts (South and West) are not far (45 minutes ish) from this property if you do feel like heading to the beach for the day. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in Monchqiue.

super gîte

  • 4 of 5

Le gîte est super. Le seul bémol. en cas de changement pour l’accueil, un SMS ou un appel téléphonique serait préférable à un mail.

Activities for your holidays in Monchique Portugal

The highlight of 'Serra de Monchique' is 900 m, but there are also other beautiful places to explore. The presence of a lush sub-tropical vegetation is due to the very favorable climate. Many streams, springs and rivers are popular since Roman times, especially the hot springs that come from the side of the mountain. Sources of Santa Fonte da Malhada Quente and Caldas de Monchique are recognized for their therapeutic properties. If you are looking for a place to escape the stress of your working life, you will not miss choice of places to hide in the mountains. The many hiking trails in the area will take you to remote areas of the Algarve, offering panoramic views of the entire region to the ocean. It lists a total of 300 km walk.

Golf: Golf do Morgado - Monchique

The Golf of Morgado is encapsulated in a natural landscape, near the greenhouses of Monchique and the tourist town of Portimão, this field makes it possible to play golf in a place that preserves the flora typical of the Algarve.

The Golf of Morgado, with 6399 meters, PAR 73, is assumed as one of the longest courses in the area.

A golf course, 18 holes, is located in a moderate moderation sector perfectly into the surrounding rustic landscape, and is composed by 5 hole PAR 5, nine par 4 and four par 3.

The different 'bunkers' statégiquement positioned, and lakes with the size of its 'greens' 800m² make Morgado Golf true 'Championship Course'.
