My wife relaxed in the beautiful grounds whilst I went running, exploring and bird watching. Accommodation is beautifully designed, staff are most helpful and the restaurant was great. We've told all our friends about this charming place. For us, this is as good as it gets.

We spent two nights at this beautiful property just outside Faro. It is a far cry from so much of the overgrown Faro and Algarve area. Vila Monte is like a small perfect nest of peace and tranquility in Moncarapacho. What most struck us was the management of the team here. From stepping out of the car, to checking in...

This is a great hotel for relaxing. Its secluded location make it perfect for a getaway from the city or the beaches. The surroundings are great with great views to the mountains. You must try the restaurant "À Terra" which was considered in 2016 the best mediterranian restaurant in Portugal.

Fantastic design; convenient and beautiful location; relaxing and quite ambiance; large territory and few rooms, meaning less people; open-air cinema is magnificent experience in the evening; seperate swimming/ lounge area for adults where kids are not allowed (we appreciated that considering that one was a child-free weekend trip for us); great food. Lots of suggestions what to do in the...

From the moment we stepped through the doors of the vila; we found ourselves a perfect; peaceful; stylish break. The staff are brilliant; so helpful; informative and interested in you as people. The food is excellent; we ate mainly in...

A great "get away from it all" destination in the Eastern Algarve where you can do as little or as much as you like. We chose to do little other than sleep, read and eat. The hotel comprises a number of separate buildings rather than one large block set in wonderfully tended grounds which is a haven for wild life....

We stayed for one night in early November, for our anniversary. On a cold but sunny day from the minute we pulled up in the car, we loved the place. A friendly welcome outside the front door, a warm and genuine introduction to the hotel, for the whole stay we felt the reception staff were genuinely passionate about the place....

I wish I could give this hotel 5 stars, it really is a beautiful place. The reception area with it's open wood fire is lovely and welcoming, the grounds are very well maintained, spacious and provide a fabulous backdrop to the hotel. The rooms are stylish, clean, and the beds are amazingly comfortable with beautiful linen. The adults only pool...
