An idyllic special place in the Monchique Hills. Accommodation surpassed all expectations. Gardens, swimming pool and our apartment terrace were wonderful. Facilities and cleanliness second to none. Hosts, a delightful, caring couple who should be proud of their achievement.

4 of us stayed back at the beginning of June, we were in a touring holiday for my fathers 80th birthday. Easy drive from Faro airport, nice to go up into the mountains as the views are beautiful. On arrival we were greeted warmly and shown to our rooms. Accommodation was spot on, extremely comfortable and the attention to detail was amazing. Very thoughtful touches like beech towels provided in a beech bag ready to go. Benedita and Marc were lovely hosts. My Dad arrived to a beautiful birthday cake!!! Warm pastries were delivered another morning. They took time to chat to us which was nice. Thank you!! Lots of good local restaurants, although you do need a car. Silves was a really nice town to visit.

Thank you so much for your kind words. It was lovely to have you and seeing the two of you with your mom and dad made us feel good, as we do not have ours together anymore.

Liked this charming place and its delightful owners so much that we returned. This time we were given an entirely different suite of rooms which reflected the same tasteful touches and sleek elegance we found during our initial stay. The gardens this time were even more agreeable than we remembered, and as always, the view from each window offered different perspectives of the gardens, the glistening sea or the rich forest which surrounds the property. Because the property is nestled in the mountains high above the twinkling lights of Lagos down by the sea, the absence of immediate “light pollution” affords one a truly spectacular view of the sky at night. The Milky Way is visible together with hundreds of the earth’s neighboring suns. Unforgettable! Finally, there is a rich variety of mountain trail walks or quiet road rambling in this scenic landscape filled with the sight and sounds of streams, wildflowers and the occasional surprise of another breathtaking vista.
