très satisfaisant

Bien placée pour visiter l'Algarve, belle location conforme à l'annonce, accès un peu délicat mais le calme et la fraicheur ça se mérite. A faire, la région vaut le déplacement.

Ein wunderbarer Ort der Ruhe

  • 5 of 5

in der schönen Sierra de Monchique - absolut empfehlenswert für Individualisten und Naturliebhaber! Geschmackvolle Einrichtung und gute Ausstattung, fantastische Aussicht. Prima Ausgangspunkt für Leute, die die ganze Algarve erkunden möchten. Die Strände der Südküste und die Surferstrände der Westküste gleichweit entfernt. Die höchsten Erhebungen der Sierra gleich nebenan, von dort tolle Sonnenuntergänge mit Weitblick!

Sehr gute Betreuung und Vorbereitung durch die Vermieter. Absolut empfehlenswert! S. + U. + K.

Vacances au calme

  • 5 of 5

15 jours très agréable au calme. Vue superbe sur la côte au loin. Meublée avec goût. Un bon compromis pour accéder aux plages du sud et/ou celles de l'ouest qui sont superbes et sauvages.

Portugal is one of Europe's most popular holiday destinations. The Algarve with its warm Mediterranean climate, golden beaches, Moorish history and renowned golf courses is particularly popular.

Our house 'Casa Horta Velha' is situated in the 'Serra de Monchique', close to the 'Foia' the highest point in the Algave with spectacular views overlooking Southwest Portugal.

The house is set in a quiet secluded location on a terraced hillside with magnificant views over wooded foothills to the southcoast. The property is rich in bird-life and other local wildlife.

It is10 min drive to the small pittoresque town Monchique with supermarket, shops, restaurants and all amenities as well 10 min to the famous Spa at 'Caldas de Monchique'. Good local restaurants are just a few minutes drive away.

35 mins easy driving to the South Coast with splendid beaches, all tourist attractions and golf courses, as well 35 mins to the West Coast with its spectacular wild coastline and beaches.

Casa Horta Velha is a great place for a peaceful, relaxing get-away holiday and a perfect base to explore the scenery and nature of South Portugal.
