We have just spent 3 nights here for a Wedding.
The Vila Monte is set in beautiful grounds with a garden where you can pick herbs for tea/ your room.
All the rooms are simply but beautifully furnished in a cool, Mediterranean Style. Sun hats, Straw Basket for your pool stuff, Sarongs all provided with each room. All rooms have a terrace to enjoy the views over the countryside.
The food especially is delicious and beautifully presented, it has an Open Kitchen so you can see the Chefs at work.
The staff are just lovely and will do everything to make your stay relaxed and comfortable.
This is the place to come if you just want to unwind and relax it is quiet and peaceful, a great escape from the hustle of the built up beach. Algarve.
It is just 20 mins from Faro Airport we can't wait to go back.

Setting, grounds, accomodation and staff all excellent and we would recommend a stay there is you are looking for a relaxing break. We booked 2 nights BB and 2 nights HB.
No HB menu available and only two starters offered (Soup or Salad), two mains offered and a sweet. This is not what I'd consider HB and falls short of what I've had at other hotels - yes pay a supplement for expensive steaks etc but very poor offering from a venue of this stature. I'd recommend a stay but go BB and decide if you want to eat in 'a terra'. Restaurant Antonio down the road in Moncarapacho was excellent and really great VFM.

Room tip: Get a Double Superior, has it's own seating area outside and not far from the pools.

We (family of 4, two small children) stayed 7 days at Vila Monte and had an amazing time & experience. The room was spacious and nicely furnished, the staff was extremely accommodating & friendly and the hotel is set in a wonderful and expansive park – it never felt crowded at all despite a wedding going on at the same time as we were there. We also took one of the outings the hotel offered to the market and had a great and authentic experience with the chef. There is a lot to see in the near surroundings – not having a car & a small child and an infant with us we stayed within a 20 minutes radius of the hotel, the especially appreciated the town of Tavira and the island of Culatra. We would highly recommend staying there and it almost felt like leaving "our home" after 7 days.

Thank you very much for your kind comment on Vila Monte Farm House.
I hope the weather has turned good there in Zurich like it has turned here in Algarve.

Look very much forward to welcoming you back again soon.

We just visited as a family of three (2 adults + baby) and had a wonderful time. The staff were very friendly and accommodating particularly towards our one year old daughter. The hotel is very tastefully decorated, and as soon as you arrive you feel like you're in an oasis of calm. It appeals to all your senses, particularly sights and smells. The food was delicious and the breakfast truly set you up for the day. The grounds are beautiful and the pools make you want to dive in, even if a little cold! The rooms and communal areas are beautiful, no wonder it features in the Design Hotel book. Our bed was huge with crisp cotton sheets and the toiletries in the bathroom smelt lovely. Definitely want to return. Thank you Vila Monte!

I dont usually write reviews but this place truely dezerves 5 stars. Its a lovely place, staff cannot do enough without being overbearing and the facilities are second to none. We went as a couple for a few days just looking to relax and it was perfect for this. We stayed on half board basis and the food was amazing although if paying off the menu somewhat a little pricey. Wine and beer reasonable...spirits and cocktails a little dearer (€10 for a mojito). The room was lovely and yes the tv does go off occassionally but that didnt bother us as we were not there to watch tv! They had a separate adult and family pool area so suitable for all. Very child friendly lots of familes with small children and babies but like i say you can keep yourself away if dont want this. I wouldnt hesitate to takr ny two year old though in the future lots of space and like i say very child friendly. We went to fuseta island one day all booked through hotel really cheap and they did everything for us!! It was an amazing sxperience to be on a desert island all on our own for the day!! Not sure this would be the case in high season though?
