Your Destination

Serra de Monchique is a thickly wooded mountain range separating the Algarve from Alentejo. The journey up (and down) to Monchique offers spectacular views and is totally different from the coastal Algarve. The houses here are typically Algarvean with their white walls and bands of colour around the windows and doors, but their 'saia' (skirt) chimneys are quite unique and different from coastal homes.

The centre of Monchique is characterised by lots of narrow cobbled streets crisscrossing up the hillside with a spattering of cafes and restaurants. The central square boasts an attractive paved area with benches, trees and a lovely water feature, including an example of a Moorish water wheel. Monchique is a very quiet and relaxed place, which is ideal for pottering around and appreciating the fantastic views.

Nearby beaches:

  • Lagos Beach - 30 minutes
  • Alvor Beach - 25 minutes
  • Aljezur Beach - 30 minutes
  • Vila do Bispo - 45 minutes

High up in the Algarve’s Serra de Monchique mountain range, with distant views of the sea, this hotel is ideal for walkers and lovers of nature...The inside of this hotel seduces with a real sense of place.
