Panoramic, peaceful and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We're just back to Ireland and the rain and mist from a too short 10 day stay in the beautiful foothills of the Serra de Monchique at Monte das Cercas where we enjoyed not only the stunning location, the clean, well kept, attended and provisioned accomodation, the wonderful weather, clear blue skies and temperatures in the low to mid 30's every day, but the equally wonderful hospitality of our host Carlos, who was not only attentive and immediately responsive to any requests we had but also very generous in giving us a tour of his 20 hectare farm and every other day providing us gifts from his locally grown produce including fruit, vegetables and a sample of the local Algarvean fruit brandy - medronho. With the beautiful panoramic views from the terrace out over the valley and hills and with the surrounding trees swaying in the gentle breeze it was impossible not to just sit or lie back and relax into the view. While a car is a necessity, Sao Marco de Serra is under 10 minutes drive, the larger Monchique about 25 minutes, we found it best to stay at the house and unwind completely on some days and on others to set out relatively early for the west or south coasts and return later in the evening to enjoy a barbecue and relax into the beautiful sunset skies over the distant hills. The 5 of us, 2 adults and 3 children confirmed with Carlos beforehand, enjoyed a fantastic and much needed break which exceeded all out expectations. Thanks for everything Carlos.

Schöner Ort als Basis zur Erkundung Portugals,

  • 5 of 5

weitab vom Massentrubel; bestens geeignet für alle die nicht jeden Tag am Strand liegen wollen. Sind letzte Woche zurückgekommen, waren mit 2 Paaren + 2 Hunden für 2 Wochen da. OK, man muss hier mehr fahren (nächstes Restaurant ca. 4km, Minimarket in Sao Marco 8km, grosser Supermarkt und mehr Restaurants in Monchique 28km), dafür hat man einen herrlichen Blick auf die umgebenden Berge, Ruhe zur Erholung und super Gastgeber. Obwohl August mit Temperaturen von bis zu 39 Grad in den Städten (zB Silves) war es hier immer erträglich, da ständig ein leichter Wind ging. Inzwischen hat Carlos auch einen kleinen Pool zum Abkühlen gebaut. Die Wohnung war wie beschrieben, ausreichend gross für 4 Personen, Schlafzimmer jeweil mit angegliedertem eigenen Bad/Toilette. Carlos und seine Frau sind einfach klasse, wir wurden mit Gemüse+Früchten aus dem eigenen Anbau verwöhnt, und sogar einigemal mitbekocht (danke nochmal, das Hirschgulasch und die CaldoVerde waren Spitze!). Wir haben von hier aus das Land erkundet: Faro, Portimao, Albufeira, Sagres, Monchique, Silves und auch einige Strände an beiden Küstenseiten besucht.

Wir waren absolut zufrieden mit dem Domizil. Es gibt in dem Haus übrigens 3 Wohneinheiten, kam aus der Beschreibung nicht ganz heraus. Sie sind aber so gestaltet und aufgebaut, dass man von den anderen Gästen wenig mitbekommt. Jede Einheit hat ihren separaten Terassenbereich, von den anderen abgeschottet. Pool und Grill werden gemeinsam genutzt.

Nid d'aigle tout confort!!

  • 5 of 5

Superbe villa isolée dans u'e magnifique région.

Confortable, décorée avec gout et entourée d'un super jardin, c'est un endroit parfait pour décompresser en ambiance " seul au monde".

Monchique est a 15/20min de voiture et les deux cotes a environ 40min.

Il ya trois logements a louer dans la villa mais les diferrences de niveaux et d'orientation des lieux font qu'on a toujours ete TRES tranquille meme avec 12 voisins sur place.

Quand je repasserai au portugal, j'y retournerai

Sehr schöne, abgeschiedene und gut gepflegte Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die 14 Tage sehr genossen! Wer einen ruhigen Urlaub fern von Massentourismus haben möchte, ist hier genau richtig. Zu den Küstenstränden ist man circa 40 Minuten unterwegs. In den Wintermonaten wird das Haus ausschließlich über den Kamin beheizt. Das sollte man wissen :-)

Magnifique séjour dans une belle maison aux environs de Sao marcos da Serra

  • 4 of 5

5 jours de repos dans une belle maison avec des collines à perte de vue . Trois terrasses ensoleillées : Une pour le petit déjeuner , une pour le midi et celle avec le barbecue le soir ! Calme absolu , un bel endroit pour se ressourcer et profiter de la nature.

Superbe

  • 5 of 5

La propriété est magnifique.

Le logement est grand et récemment rénové. (le lac sera terminé quand on reviendra).

Carlos et sa femme sont absolument charmants.

Isolé de tout (1 épicerie à quelques km et sinon l'inter de Monchique)... superbes promenades... idéal pour se reposer.
