Nestled on a scented hillside above the quaint market town of Monchique, this typical 3 Bedroom quinta enjoys stunning views out to the coast, even as far as Lisbon over the vast expanse of rolling hills. It is a serene retreat from busy lifestyles and absolutely bursts with charm.

The master bedroom is bright and spacious and has a Double Bed as well as plenty of storage space with wardrobes and chests of drawers for your bits and bobs. It boasts its own private roof terrace, ideal for lazy breakfasts and stargazing with a glass of wine in the evenings,

The second Bedroom is a Twin Room, which can be easily manoeuvred into a Double should you wish to do so. This room has views across the beautiful garden out to the coast.

Down the stairs you will find the third and final Bedroom. It is a cheerful snug-come-bedroom looking out onto the garden with Twin Beds, again if preferred they can easily be made into a comfortable Double Bed.

The Bathroom is a Family Bathroom complete with a Full Size Bath, Wash Basin and WC. There is also an additional Shower Room with WC and washbasin downstairs.

The comfortable Living Room boasts huge sofa, hayloft reading area and a roaring open fire place and an endless supply of firewood, perfect for a cosy night in with a glass of wine. Help yourself to any of the wide selection of books or grab one of the board games for a cosy evening in. There is a Laptop from which you can access the Internet (WiFi) and has an inbuilt DVD Player.

The farmhouse kitchen is a delightful room with everything you would need to cook and enjoy some of the local produce. There is a Dining Table with seating for 8 people.

There is an outdoor dining area accessed through the kitchen with a large round granite table and barbecue. Just off of the Kitchen is the Utility Room with a Washing Machine and drying rack as well as a line in the garden. There is also an Iron and Board for your use.

The beautiful 4 acre garden is awash with flowers and fruit trees and has an enticing spring water pool. Around the house and pool are colourful flower beds and climbing plants. There is plenty of outside seating, sun beds, an umbrella and a hammock.

The pool is 5m x 10m, there are wide steps for easy access.

The rest of the property is terraced with a variety of olive trees, fruit trees and wild flowers. It really is that sought after paradise where you can enjoy doing as little or as much as you want – a beautiful setting to let yourself just be, and a superb location for any activity whether it be surfing, painting, cycling or exploring. We can even help you arrange to have a massage by the fire or by the pool. It really is the backdrop to the perfect vacation.

For any cyclists looking to make the most of the country trails around the house there is a lockable bike shed you can use to store your gear, if you would like to hire some locally we can help source these for you as well as organize any outings should you want a guide.Just let us know what you would like to do.

The nearest restaurant (a family favourite) is 15min walk across the valley, a magical walk home by moonlight.

Beach life is 30- 40 mins away in either direction . Chose from the south coast, small secluded coves and boat trips, spot yachts in the marina, or go west, through foothills and forests for big beaches, the national park where you can spot dolphins and walk the cliff paths. If you like to surf we recommend Praia Amado or Praia de Arrifana and if you looking for good beach to bring your kids you should go to Praia da Amoreira which has a nice lagoon sheltered from the big waves where even toddlers can safely enjoy the freedom to play in the water.

The Area:

Serra de Monchique, the stunning mountain range between the Algarve and Alentejo.Well known as the Garden of the Algarve. A short drive to the nicest beaches of Portugal, be it the wild west coast, well known by surfers, or the warmer south coast.

Monchique, a small market town situated in the Serra de Monchique, with a pretty square, cobbled streets, little boutiques, bars and restaurants. You can find everything you need for a laid back, relaxing holiday.

Plenty to do for the active in and around Monchique – hiking, canoeing, cycling, beaches – and pretty historic town of Silves where you can visit museums and the castle or take a fascinating boat trip down the wide river.
