schönes Haus in wunderbarer Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 14 Tage im neuen Teil dieses traumhaft gelegenen Hauses in der Sierra de Monchique. Freundlich und komfortabel eingerichtet, eine große Terrasse mit Blick auf Berge, Portimao und das Meer. Algarve und Atlantikküste sind gut erreichbar... Insgesamt eine klare Empfehlung für Menschen, die Ruhe und Natur suchen...

Gerne wieder

  • 4 of 5

Die Unterkunft hat unsere Erwartungen aus der Objektbeschreibung voll erfüllt.

Sehr ruhige und abgeschiedene Lage fern ab des Touristentrubels.

Auch wenn die Ausstattung des gepflegten Hauses nicht neu ist, ist doch alles notwendige vorhanden.

Freundlicher Kontakt zum Vermieter, der auf Anfragen immer sehr schnell und umfassend geantwortet hat.

Er stellt auch eine sehr umfassende Beschreibung von Sehenswürdigkeiten, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und empfehlenswerten Restaurants zur Verfügung.

An der Westküste gibt es spektakuläre Strände zu entdecken. Hier ist nicht der Touristentrubel wie an der Südküste. Trotzdem am Besten Vormittags hinfahren, weil Nachmittags die begrenzte Anzahl von Parkplätzen meist vergeben ist.

UNE VUE IMPRENABLE

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette maison perchée sur la montagne. La vue est extraordinaire et la maison très agréable. Il souffle toujours un peu d'air frais même au plus chaud de l'été. Suzanna qui est chargée de notre bien-être est formidable et met tout en oeuvre pour que le séjour des vacanciers soit le plus réussi possible. A recommander !!!

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.
