Our stay here was magical. The couple (Theo and Manuela) who run the guest house really make you feel a part of the family, always telling you the best tips of the area. Their knowledge is really exceptional and they really make sure you have a great stay. The breakfast is delicious, and comes with great conversation. The garden is...

Spa d'Alma was recommended by friends so we hoped it would be as good as they said it was - and I'm pleased to say it more than lived up to our expectations! Our room was large and the bed very comfortable. Theo greeted us warmly, showed us round the beautiful house and gardens and invited us to help ourselves...

This place is magical. High up in the hills. Incredibly peaceful. We were greeted by Theo who showed us everything we needed. He gave us a great restaurant recommendation which we wouldn't have found otherwise. In the morning his wife served a fantastic breakfast of fresh, local food. This is a place I know i will return to!

We came straight to the Casa from the Airport and immediately felt at home. Our host greeted us and showed us around and explained everything. After unpacking, once we made our way to the pool to relax on the sunbeds he even brought us a jug of icewater with slices of their own lemons, seldom did we get a warmer...

Surrounded in a beautiful area in Portugal full of mountains, this place is the perfect get away. Lovely garden filled with flowers and orange and lemon trees, with a pool just big enough with beautiful view and a jaccuzi. We had the room in the back of the garden, which was very spacious (the bathroom as well!), clean and beautifully...

This is a great little find in the mountains just outside Monchique. Theo and his wife manuella were wonderful hosts. The breakfast whilst simple was more than adequate with a large variety of fruit, granola, ham cheese, eggs, croissant, fresh baguettes and home made jam. (Try the pumpkin jam. It is yummy). Our room was large and wry clean with...
