It is only a 10 minute drive to Monchique, which lies between the two hills Fóia & Picota, the former reaching over 900 metres above sea level. Between Monchique & the town of Portimão is the popular little spa resort of Caldas de Monchique. This pretty little village has now been restored to its former glory. Saunter around the boutiques & cafes, picnic beneath the pines, or walk up the valley alongside a burbling stream.Holidays in Monchique are an enviable procession of sight seeing, leisurely walks through astonishingly beautiful countryside, sitting in idyllic town squares, with local markets offering regional produce & handicrafts, or eating simple but absolutely delicious local food & watching day-to-day life swirl past you.

Lovely cottage. Fully equipped, with views to the distant coast. Log burning stove is nice in the winter. Be aware, however, the location on Trip Advisor map is incorrect. Cottage is South of Monchique and to find it you have to use the directions supplied.
