Monchique, Faro District, Algarve
This really is a beautiful villa. Tucked away from its neighbours about 200 yards down a winding driveway, you could easily believe you are alone in the world in this magical spot where a pretty stream runs though the garden. Yet it is not at all remote with restaurants within 50 yards of the gateway and big towns and nightlife (if you want it) only about a 20 minute trip by car.

The villa has four bedrooms,four bathrooms (2 with baths and 2 with showers). There are three balconies and two patios plus the pool area and barbeque. The living area is a huge open plan room with wood burning stove and satellite TV. There is a separate dining room and the kitchen has direct access to one of the patios. If you enjoy walking, footpaths from the property lead to trails that cover the whole Monchique eco zone. For shopping, Monchique has an excel...

We had a wonderful, quiet and above all, restful holiday at this charming villa with all of the required facilities. The abundance of interesting wildlife, the stream next to the property, a herd of goats and a beautiful pool, complete with jacuzi and it's own waterfall, all added to the charm of this gem of a property. As the weather was absolutely amazing for the length of our stay, this was truly a holiday to remember, and we extend our thanks to the owners for making it all possible.

About the neighbourhood
The villa is in the foothills of the Monchique mountains and only about 350 feet above sea level. These mountains are the highest in the Algarve and rise to about 3000 feet and you can drive to the top and enjoy the fabulous views. Near to the villa is the popular beauty spot of Caldas de Monchique which is often featured in TV documentaries about the Algarve. The village is about 2 km up the road and is well known for it's spa waters, its unusual houses and sub-tropical appearance.

At the villa, you can enjoy being in the countryside without being isolated. Good restaurants are right across the road and others within walking distance. Within about 20 km (15 to 20 minutes drive) on good main roads are the fabulous beaches of Praia da Rocha and Alvor, historic Silves with its magnific...

How to get there
Airport: FARO: 80.0 km
Railway: PORTIMAO: 18.0 km
Ferry: PORTIMAO: 18.0 km
The nearest airport is Faro, which is about a one hour drive from the villa. Do shop around for flights and useful websites are: www.thomsonfly.com  www.flytap.com  www.flymonarch.com  www.ryanair.com  www.easyjet.com  www.ba.com  www.flybe.com   www.bmibaby.com If you want to save money on your flights, it is often a lot cheaper to go to Lisbon which gives an opportunity to visit this lovely city and the drive to the villa is quite straightforward.

For car hire from Faro airport we have found the best overall company to deal with is a small one called Zitauto who keep cars at the airport and don't make a fuss if you get an extra scratch or two. visit their website: www.zitautorentacar.co.uk
